    What will be Gracie Gold's new SP music???

    Let's face it. Team Gold won't be going for anything avant-garde this tension filled Olympic season. So which warhorse will prevail???

    You didn't include a tango/flamenco number? I voted "something else," perhaps Maleguena? I can see it now - big flower in the hair (pulled back tight), with a red and black lace dress. And big ruffles at the end of the sleeves to accuentate those sharp arm movements!

    It will probably be a Lori Nichol re-tread. Let's hope it's not Slaughter on Tenth Avenue!

    Maybe they will choose Techno music. It is non-descript, non-recognizable and if she uses it, everyone will think she is so "cutting edge."

    However, absent that, let's choose music from the ballet Don Quixote. She can do the Kitri variations section, as well as the paus de deux.

    They could call it "The Best of Gold", but then Plushy would probably blow a gasket.

    I think Loves_Shizuka is referring to Gracie's controversial tweet:

    Yes, I'm aware.

    Doesn't make it less offensive.

    Anyways, as others have said it's the free that needs to be replaced.

    Since Gold has already broken 'new' (if your musical tastes are limited to Celine Dion) ground, she should continue down that road and get a super voidy program to Crystal Castles "Doe Deer".

    Wait! I hear you say. But it's only 1:36.

    Indeed, it is.

    Worry not! Using the magic of digital audio editing, she could pair it up with The Knife "Full of Fire" for the slower parts, to provide much needed light and shade and variety in the choreography.

    As an atonement for her idiotic twitter comment, the program would be queer-themed, featuring an androgynous costume and styling, blurring racial, gender and sexual lines. Gold's program would be an examination of oppressive social norms and it would slowly build up to a "Doe Deer" backed outburst of rage against the cultural hegemony, expressed through a circular step sequence featuring a lot of ott crazy arm flailing, possibly resulting in grievous bodily harm to the judges caught in the firing line as Gold moves closer to the boards. In the final pose, Gold would tear off all of her clothes and just stand there, naked and vulnerable with 'MANIFEST DESTINY' written on her body in red and blue marker.

    Quite a lot of transitions, pretty much constant upper body movement, done to the music most of the time. It definitely isn't 'all_empty' unlike most of the other programs out there.

    The music is big and powerful and it suits her skating style. Yes it's a ballet but it isn't a languid longato piece. It's a good program and she should keep it.

    I see your Crystal Castles and The Knife and raise you Aphex Twin - Come to Daddy

    Maybe she should take inspiration from Adrian Schulthess and do the Prodigy - Smack my b#!*h up

    I'm voting for Sonia Radeva's 2009 SP.
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    So many fantastic ideas!

    Radeva's "CAW CAW CAW" program is an absolute legend. It's up there with Vassileva's Bollywood FS. Definitely something for Gold to draw inspiration from. Could she possibly choreograph even more posing in her new SP? We will see!

    As for taking a page out of Schultheiss's book, she could go for something like Margaret Berger's strait-jacket dress, lots of frantic arm movements and angsty facial expressions. Being a proud American, she could mash-up the Prodigy's track with something by Skrillex.

    Who are we kidding, it's going to be Malaguena, isn't it?
