    Signature music

    I associate certain pieces of music with certain skaters. It means (to me) whenever I hear that music, I think of that skater and/or that particular performance, even though others have skated to that music.

    Here is my list:

    Lady Caliph, Valse Sentimentale, Meditation from Thais- Berezhnaya & Sikharulidze
    Moonlight Sonata, Reverie, The man I love - Gordeeva Grinkov
    Libestraum - Mishkutionok & Dmitriev
    Love Story- Sale & Pelletier

    As time goes by - Kurt Browning
    The Story of my life- Brian Orser
    Rhapsody in Blue - Ilia Kulik
    Don Quixote- John Curry

    Bach's Air on a G string- Klimova & Ponomarenko
    Bolero - Torville & Dean
    Masquerade Waltz- Krylova & Ovssianikov
    Four seasons - Usova & Zhulin

    Carmen - Katarina Witt
    Salome, The Red Violin, Song of the black swan- Michelle Kwan
    Swan Lake (Black swan)- Oksana Baiul
    Scheherzade - Midori Ito

    The Polovtsian Dances: Bestemianova & Bukin in full dramatik flight-curious to see what Bazarova & Larionov will make of it.

    Swan Lake = without a doubt

    Afternoon of a Faun: John Curry did a pro performance to this with Cathy Foulkes in 1980 with brilliant choreo -Adam Rippon should watch it!

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    Kwan- Rach 2. It was funny. I saw a clip of Karen Magnussen skating to it and thought to myself, "She's using Michelle's music."

    How did I forget Winter by Yagudin and Sex Bomb by Plushenko? Same with Michelle's Lyra Angelica.

    For Die Fledermaus I always think of G&G's 1989 worlds LP skate. It was perfect.

    Not really a single piece of music, but every time a dance team skates to a tango, I immediately think of G&P's amazing "Libertango" program, especially the footwork sequence.
