Beatles is an unexpected choice from Lori for an elite skater for the Olympic season where one would expected to hear mostly classical - sonatas, concertos, symphonies, opera and ballet - as well as very popular movie soundtracks. Can't wait to see the program.
A happy sigh from me. As long as Takahashi sticks to Miyamoto this season, I have no other request whatsoever for the skating gods. Thank you thank you thank you. Can't wait to see it.
I'm very excited to see Daisuke's programs this year
In looking at the selections to be included in Dai's FS, maybe he is using arrangements performed by 1966 Quartet. I checked them out after the Shibs announced they are using a piece by them for part of their FD. I didn't find a whole lot of examples, but I really enjoyed what I heard; the Beatles songs were very good!

Fuji tweeted that the fifth song of his Beatles/Wings medley is this:
Geaorge Martin - Friends and Lovers

I was wondering what "Friends and Lovers" meant, thanks for the link. I am so looking forward to both of these new programs for Dai!
Her program from 2005:
^^^ Thanks! I've cross-posted your video link in this new GSD thread, along with rosewood's and ostile17's posts: Daisuke Takahashi expresses “the love” by Beatles
I've posted a new article on Danielle O'Brien/Greg Merriman in the Aussie Skating thread: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...=1#post3954588
"Our music selections for short dance this season comes from John Barry’s The Cotton Club soundtrack," Merriman said. "We really hope to translate the ballroom style of quickstep in the required Finnstep pattern and have chosen to combine this with a foxtrot and a fun, vibrant Charleston."
"We have opted to keep our 2012/13 Circus free dance for the coming season, but have made significant changes in order to build and take the program to the next level," O'Brien added. "This program really highlights our personalities and was so much fun to compete last season that we look forward to performing it again."

"Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isn’t every four years, it’s every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden
I am pleasantly surprised that Lori is ready to choreograph to this medley.
As of March 2013 - no longer scared of TAHbKA or Andrey aka Pushkin
I'm not a huge fan of white dresses although some really do work. On this one I love the skirt piece and the shoulders. The mid-body looks like someone's embroidered pillow case. I'm not feelin it.
The black one is pretty basic to me.
I was way more impressed at the uniqueness of her dresses last year even though the LP dress had some design turnoffs.
Luckily the spark in her skating overcomes anything she's wearing
