    SD music ideas for next season

    Really interested in ideas for the pattern dance part of the SDs for both junior (Blues) and senior (Yankee Polka). I am a bit obsessed with finding new music for patterns dances generally for our dance sessions. So fitting in with that I would love to know of what you could use for the Blues and YP.

    I think this one would make a great YP

    Gilles and Poirier have announced their short dance will be Mary Poppins.

    My favourite blues piece is Three Hours Past Midnight by Colin James, which was the SP music for Dube/Wolfe this year.

    I think it would be amazing for a dance team.

    That link is for the Team France K&C clip - which I'm guessing isn't what you had in mind?

    Mary Poppins sounds promising... and I am sure some of the teams will be able to come up with creative ideas. Or at least, I hope so, or next year will be painful.

    Sorry about that. This is the one I had in mind

    I agree - I don't want pain.

    One thing I do know-when they had the polka as an OD for 1992 Olympic season, both R&K and Duchesnays had to scrap their original dance & make a new one, R&K after they skated at Skate America.

    Here's the disputed R&K polka and the discussion:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEbgbwhoO0Y#t=1m53s

    The specs on the YP are:

    Music - Polka 2/4
    Tempo - 60 measures of 2 beats per minute
    - 120 beats per minute

    So, if I were picking music for the polka, I'd be careful that it was really a polka.

    That said, there are a bunch of songs from Mexico done in polka rhythm that are sort of the Mexican version of gangster rap, called narco corridos.

    gangsta polka, if you will.

    Here's the piece that started it, Contrabando & Traicion (Smuggling & Treachery) by los Tigros del Norte
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSNYaZXQud8

    The girl ends up shooting the boy and running off with the money & dope.

    Some pieces are other rhythms, but a lot of them are in polka rhythms.

    It might be fun to do drug gang Mexicans skating to the polka.

    One of my worst skating memories is having to sit through 26 yankee polkas at Euros in 2008. So I hate the Yankee Polka and I hate the SD. It's not looking good for me
    I hope in 13-14 it's tango!

    Hey Doris that is really interesting. Thanks for posting those links. It would be interesting to see someone use that kind of music.

    However I see your drug reference polka and raise you this one

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sr2Grfi3lFg&ob=av2n

    I also want to see someone use some Weird Al polka next season too. This one's hilarious.

    I searched for the name and found another version of the video.

    Not sure how well the song would work on its own.

    Gilles and Poirier tweeted that they are using Mary Poppins for the SD.

    I don't know which song...maybe Step in Time?

    Meanwhile, here's the Orange Blossom special done as a polka

    I don't care what team, but if someone skated to Weird Al, I would be their biggest fan FOREVER!

    Too funny.

    And here's polka rap, believe it or not (very explicit lyrics on some of them)

    bling Polka (this could actually work)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W80WVrVRDk

    FU polka (this wouldn't, but it sure shows the range of polka expression

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UNLGw...eature=related

    And here's some polka numbers for any skaters who don't want drinking and drugging and swearing polkas:

    Catholic mass polka

    How great thou art polka

    Doris - the first one is a classic. I can actually picture a team using that.

    Yeah, I thought it would work too

    Here's the Tractor Polka, which also might work

    If you look back through Gilles/Poirier tweets there may be some hints in there because they made little tweets about songs that had me thinking Mary Poppins. Didn't put it together with the SD but that makes for an interesting and fun idea. Love that their team (coaches/choreographers) come up with these fun ideas. One of the songs I remember them tweeting about was "spoon full of sugar" and the other might have been "chim chimeny".

    John Ryan's Polka from the movie Titanic would work, I think

    Original without dialog

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ho1x0c86RrU

    It's from the dance scene in 3rd class
