    Count me in as another vote for Jeff, but in it's original format, not the revamped O's format.

    RE: Jeff Buttle.... yes, I preferred the original version too. The Olympic performance of it is never the one I think of with this music. I even forgot he did it there.

    I too forgot about that performance. It was mistake-filled, and not memorable. Buttle was a beautiful skater but way too inconsistent for my taste

    Jeff's original S&D
    The sequence of field moves, the camel spin in the opposite direction... so many amazing bits to that program.

    Agreed. I chose other (meaning Buttle) and Rochette. Although I prefer the Japan Open version of Rochette's program better.

    D/W and Ashley Wagner. I don't think I've ever seen the Fleming or Slutskaya versions. I like Ashley's better than Joannie's since it's a bit more spirited.

    Definitely Jeff Buttle's original 2003-04 version. Hands down.

    It's too bad we can't have a tie for 1st or 2nd place but then that would make three programs rather than two wouldn't it?

    I chose Irina Slutskaya's pro/exhibition version. She used the same music that D&W's FD opened with.

    Jeff Buttle's LP very narrowly edged out D&W for my top two.

    Yes, I was in France at the time and watched it on tv during French Nationals. I liked it and couldn't find it. I don't have that video tape anymore, it was lost when I moved back to Holland. I haven't seen this SC performance, so thanks for the link.

    If anyone has that French nationals, please share somewhere. They interviewed Gusmeroli about the theme of er lp and Anissina/Peizerat talked about their FD. It was quite interesting, even though my French wasn't brilliant at the time and I only understood parts.
