    Chaplin's music in figure skating

    Today is Sir Charles Spencer "Charlie" Chaplin's birthday. And I wanted to mark this day by opening this thread about his contribution to figure skating.
    Which "Chaplin programs" you know, you love, you remember? Share!

    He did a wonderful performance to this at The Gold Championships in 1995, but I could only find this one.

    It's not great, but I like Mirai Nagasu's 2009 US Nats SP, despite the errors and self-consciousness.

    That was one of my favorite programs from Mirai too bad she never skated it to its full potential

    Sui/Han also skated to City Lights. Which event did they skate it best at?

    I love this program and her performances in Scott Hamilton's special. Her warmth and charm were really showcased here.

    I have to admit that Chaplin was the most exciting skater ever.
