An article that came out two weeks ago.
Maybe they were looking into those pictures to inspire their SP then found Charlie Chaplin routine fascinating? I really can't picture how they will play this but am so looking forward to it!
BTW, I can't edit my Pairs list post since I'm out of 24-hour editing window

Here's their new SP - it's definitely Chaplin - maybe there's other American music in it?
Only it seems you forgot Weaver/Poje and Bobrova/Soloviev. Weaver/Poje's SD music is from the Broadway musical '42nd Street' (music by Harry Warren) - http://instagram.com/p/bPsfyDDK26/# , and FD music is from the tango "opera" 'Maria De Buenos Aires' by Astor Piazolla - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...levant_count=1 (they gave another hint before).
As for Bobrova/Soloviev, I recognize their SD music selections as something that I have heard quite a lot, but I don't know them by title. Their FD music, though, is from a Russian TV movie 'И все-таки я люблю' ('And yet I love') - it's by Russian composer Dmitry Malikov. They are supposed to portray birds in that program.
All their programs have way more than one version, including Yagudin's, if I count all versions, all his 2002 olympic programs easily past 1 million views. Actually I am impressed by Yagudin's record because he's the only one among them retired before youtube occurred. I guess Plushenko's Sex Bomb contributed a big bulk of his view record, that's easily understandable, Sex,,, and Bomb, sounds so damn hot, sheesh, you can imagine, those simply search for "sex" may want to have a peek too.
Sorry for the non-relevant posts, but I recently learned there's a board function called ignore list.

SP: When Winter Comes, a music especially composed for them by Andre Rieu.
LP: The Nutcracker
The last top pair I remember skating the LP to Nutcracker was Shen/Zhao back in 2004. Can't wait to see S/S's version now.LP: The Nutcracker
I wonder what cuts they'll use. There's a lot of great music there.
where did you have this information from? Did they have their public skating with the other germans or outta interview?
Every time I see a popular piece from a big, great score announced, I hope it won't be the same old cuts, but then the programs are revealed, and it's Charlie Brown and the football all over again . But in the meantime, we can hope.
The piece is seventy-five minutes long...[l]ong enough for an idea to be developed, but not so long that one starts to measure the number of seats to the exits with desperation if the thing doesn’t work" -- Marina Harss
It's not an original choice (though for them it kinda is actually) yet I find S/S using Nutcracker to be rather exciting. I'm looking forward to it.

^ I agree. Not an original choice in music itself but on the contrary, I find it a very original choice for S/S. Totally unexpected for me, to be honest! I am looking forward to seeing what they do with classical music.
I so totally agree I am also looking so forward of seing this
