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.

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
