    Does that mean V/M's samba FD counts? (well until everyone started using Mujer Latine for their SD the following season)

    IIRC Savchenko-Szolkowy skated a 'clown' SP in the last few years, but I don't remember the music.

    Send in the Clowns from A Little Night Music. Another modern & fun program from them was their Pink Panther FS.

    They got the compulsory pattern all wrong, but I loved Agafonova/Ucar's SD to Faiytale by Alexander Rybak.

    I don't know if these fall into the category of modern music but they were definitely fun and energetic programs.

    I really liked Kaetlyn Osmond's SP this season. She impressed me b/c she matched the energy of the music and didn't let it run over her, which is hard to do.

    I'm also a huge sucker for Kanako Murakami's "Jumpin Jack" program. Lots of energy, very fun and she had a blast with it. I'm not all at ashamed to say this was my favorite SP of the 2010-2011 season.

    Love, love Akiko Suzuki's 2012-13 sp to Kill Bill music:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjVtQHH6Iqg

    Not an easy program to master, but Akiko owned it at 4CC earlier this year!

    I love all of these - so far my favorite is Kanako Murakami's "Jumpin Jack" program - her face is pure joy.

    This reminds me of why I loved this program; and his performance of it, so much.

    There's also this history-making SP by Tonya at 1991 Skate America where she did the first 3A (and in combination) in the short program by a lady.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVz07QH2USM
    The music was "People Are Still Having Sex" by LaTour

    I love that SP! It's almost like she's doing aerobics on ice (in a good way). I'd rather watch her simple, but speedy footwork timed to the beat over any level 4 sequence out there today.

    She also skated to "Relax" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oRmeCp582A but I think Something in My House was the more exciting/fun of the two

    It's not really modern music, but Mao's "I've Got Rhythm" from this past season.

    Dan Hollander's last US Nationals short program was to Stomp-like percussion where every step was choreographed to the sound. Fantastic program; I always wanted to see it when he wasn't injured.
    I'd rather be thought of as absolutely ridiculous than as absolutely boring.
