With vocals being allowed now, I expect Carmina Burana to become a more common choice for skaters. Well for men and pairs. It would have to be a kick a** lady who would pick it.
The Battlestar music - how easily could the audience separate it from the story? Would programs that used it be the "sci-fi" program? I think that is the concern with movie tracks. When del-shoes did the piano, they went way more literally with it than my vision of it. I just liked the music standing on its own.
