    Cherub721 YEAH!

    That SP for Verner sounds fun and should be a nice change of pace from all of the dramatik Russian music I expect to hear. I must not be a very good fan, because I didn't even remember he'd skated to those tangos back in 2009. :eek:

    as we know, another romeo&juliet-music was lucky for him 2 seasons ago.

    i like this music of nino rota, but it's just overused in figure skating and you have to do really well and great to catch my eye on a program with this music. we will see

    I can't even remember Verner's last good big competition, or last good competition at that.

    2011 Euros? Not a great LP, but fairly decent overall and he medalled.

    I like the sound of his SP, if he ever skates it well it could be a lot of fun.

    He did well in the 10-11 season, 3rd at CoC, 1st at COR (ahead of Chan, who Zayaked, but still), 5th with decent skates at GPF, 3rd at Euros, 12th in a deep field at Worlds (not a great result for him, but his skates there were decent). So really it is not so far back that you have to dig to get good results from him. I also think he was pretty decent at Czech Nationals the past couple seasons, scoring like 150-160 in the FS. I think he can still do the jumps, the trouble is all in his head, and then injuries don't help either.

    I expected to see a lot of "safe" music selections for an Olympic year, but I did not expect so many programs that reuse the skaters' own previous programs. Must be a new trend. So, the way things are going, by the time we get to 2018, skaters will skate to no music at all and just go through all their technical elements.

    Why cannabalize other (previous) skaters' music when you can cannabalize your own? :rofl:

    I like the Nina Rota soundtrack of Romeo and Julia most. I haven't seen that movie, but that music is lovely. I'm not tired of that one yet.

    I disagree. I'm tired of Hanyu being slapped the ol' "classical" program. It's not him! It feels like they're trying to fit him into a mold or something.

    The Notre Dame de Paris SP? Eh. :blah:

    The Scriabin SP from 2011/12? Yes, that was him, but it was subtle. The Jeff Buttle SP from 2012/13 perfectly suits his body line and skating style, and it feels unique, and it's not flashy in an obvious way.

    In an documentary about Hanyu I saw a couple months ago, Orser kept using Chan as the gold standard for which Yuzuru had to live up to. It's fair to admire, but everyone should be allowed to not try and be Chan.

    Let people have their own style! :soapbox:

    You're tired... me too honestly :lol: problem is that Hanyu has said that he can get into this old classical program to Romeo very easily, so he evidently feels that it suits his style, regardless of us liking it or not. Being good at or liking classical programs doesn't mean that things like Parisian Walkways are not his style as well, it just means that he has different facets in his still-budding skating style, and likely his personality as well.
    One thing I have to correct you on, though, is what you wrote about the documentary. I've watched it more than once and I'm pretty sure Orser has never mentioned Hanyu (or whoever) having to take Patrick's style as a gold standard :confused: in fact, the whole focus of that feature is skating skills, and Orser talks at length about of Hanyu has to work on them because if he trustes his blades he can do whatever he wants on the ice. It's talking about skating skills that he mentions Patrick as a standard, not style.

    Do we know if Michal Brezina kept his SP to "In the Hall of the Mountain King"/Epica version from last season? (It was posted earlier in this thread that he has a new FS to the Sherlock Holmes soundtrack.) Brezina skated his SP at the Moran Memorial club competition in Hackensack, New Jersey today.

    Tweeted by @JohnnyGWeir: "Misha Rocks! @brezinamichal clean short at Moran! 4S, 3A, 3F+2T. Yay!"

    ETA: Yes, Brezina kept his SP - see video below.

    The first clip is Satan Takes A Holiday, very famously skated to by Robin Cousins. Javi even borrows a step or two judging from that first clip.
