    If I must choose; your choices will do for me.
    No skater has ever had so many great programs; and incomparable performances, from which to select.
    That only becomes more apparent with the passage of time.

    Oh, this one is tough! Thank goodness you let us choose more than one option.

    Dream of Desdamona was her best SP ever, IMO. I love some others but this one was just spectacular.

    Of her LP's my favorite would be the Red Violin. Her attack and precision at 2000 Worlds was incredible and let us see the program to its full potential.

    When I think about her exhibition numbers I have to go with Fields of Gold. Just a beautiful skater paired with a beautiful song.

    Runners ups would be:
    Salome
    Romanza
    Lyra Angelica
    On My Own

    I am probably forgetting some really amazing programs but these jump out at me for the moment.

    LP: Salome or Red Violin or ...
    SP: Romanza or East of Eden or ...
    Exhibition: One More Time or Dante's Prayer or ...

    This is a difficult question. I loved almost everything she skated.

    I love Fields of Gold so much that it plays tricks on my mind. Not for the first time, when I was pondering favorite Kwan skates, it occurred to me that I had seen FOG live because it had touched me so much and was so immediate in my imagination. Then I think - I never saw Kwan skate FOG live....it just feels that way - the emotion. It certainly touched my heart. Red Violin also.

    SP: EoE. It's not only my favorite Michelle's SP, for me it's one of the best short programs in ladies skating ever.

    I am glad people like the subversive Miraculous Mandarin.

    M.M. is a wonderful program. In fact I really wish Michelle had kept both Miraculous Mandarin & Rush that season.

    While I might go back and watch a given skater's past performances, they are few and far between. I watch many of Michelle's key performances as noted above at least once a year and still marvel.

    She didn't give them up by choice.

    Apparently, TPTB didn't care for them.
    Like some others here, I wonder whether Peter Carruthers' negative comments had some weight.

    Would the arc of her career have been different had she continued using "edgier" music/choreography?
    It's interesting to contemplate; yet, impossible to know.
