    There is apparently music from Carmen that will work with the beat/timing of the polka. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVtwS...eature=related

    IMO, a Carmen SD is another thing entirely from a Carmen FD. The ridiculousness of skating a polka to Carmen would sort of be hilarious. At any rate, I'm far more tolerant of the idea Carmen for the SD than for the FD.
    Well it would allow Marina to reuse that cut of music that I associate with Gordeeva and Grinkov

    It doesn't sound too slow to me. It sounds like it's the same speed as the old Yankee Polka CD music.

    I wish V/M would've done Carmen last year when I had to sit through Funny Face at all those GPF and 4CC practices. I wanted to puncture my ear drums with a toe pick.

    Agreed, but isn't that from Quadrophenia, not Tommy? Now, a medley of "The Acid Queen/Pinball Wizard/Sensation" would be an amazing journey for the right team....


    I'm so so sorry....

    Should have just gone for a coffee break, then.

    Has anyone heard anything about what Duhamel and Radford's programs/music are/is?

    As for V&M, what an incredibly uninspired, unoriginal choice from the Olympic champs. I'm actually shocked that Marina would let them use it (then again I was shocked she let them do Funny Face too).

    I wonder if Carmen was chosen for V&M before Igor left Camp Canton?
    There is no actual evidence that they are skating to Carmen as of yet, just a "rumor". V&M don't usually announce their music until mid-August.

    You are so lucky you got to see them skate in person. I would have loved that no matter how much I either hated or loved their programs. I would have loved to watch them skate FF over and over again. But then, I loved the program. Not as much as their OLY programs, but it was dance and I love watching real ice dancing.

    They didn't announce it yet. Someone claiming they know what they are skating to announced it on a formspring account. Seems Canton is loosing their ability to keep secrets

    I think V/M's Carmen sounds terrific. They might pull off something very different and innovative from the music and they have the ability for it.

    I never get the disdain for the FF music - it's part of the Great American songbook, Gershwin is classic, S'Wonderful has been recorded by everyone from Brian Wilson to Diana Krall to Rod Stewart, and while Fred Astaire doesn't have the richest vocal instrument he's long been considered to have wonderful phrasing by the very people who composed the music/songs. I like it better than the vocals in UOC.

    Also don't understand how anyone could possibly wonder about Tessa pulling off anything. She was brilliant in the yankee polka last time, she is brilliant at everything Latin from Farrucas to the Worlds fd of 2010 to the od in 2007. She was also good in the paso doble cd in 2009. I've also never thought of Tessa and Scott being avant garde in their music choices or innovative how fsu usually means innovative. They are about pure dance, not theatre. That's how they're innovative, because for a long time ice dance had become about some theatrical theme set to music. They broke away from that to emphasize dance, and are proud of it. The stuff fsu wants them to do is the stuff Virtue and Moir are proud of not doing or being, and a big reason I, personally, love them.
