    - Lee Holdridge, East of Eden (finale only :eek:)
    - Chaconne from The Red Violin
    - Ma, Kim, and Ax playing Dvorak's Dumky piano trio
    - the album Cinema Serenade, which includes the version of the main theme from "Sabrina" that Czisny skated to
    - Vanessa-Mae's Violin Fantasy of Turandot :)shizuka1:, Shen/Zhao, :sarah1:)
    - Liszt's First Piano Concerto (Kozuka)
    - "Memorial" from The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover (Grishuk/Platov)
    - "Espana Cani" by Erich Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra :)sasha1:)
    - Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto (Ando)

    I've tried and tried to get a hold of Schnittke's Tale of Wandering (Butyrskaya), and have only the wrong album to show for it. Finally, if anyone knows which elevator version of "Serenade" Irina Slutskaya skated to, I'd be grateful of their assistance. :shuffle:

    The Red Violin -- the whole thing.
    East of Eden and other film music by Lee Holdridge. (I've never seen all the EoE music anyplace. Is it out now? I think it was called American Anthem way back when.)
    Masquerade Waltz
    Fields of Gold
    Lt. Kija Suite

    The Chairman's Waltz from Memoirs of a Geisha, skated by Mirai Nagasu. Written by John Williams, performed by Itzhak Perlman and Yo Yo Ma. Doesn't get any better. :)

    This thread makes me :lol:.

    Anything MK ever skated to, if I didn't already have it, I bought it.
    Gladiator Soundtrack-Yagudin

    Beethoven's Sonata "Pathetique" for G&G and Rach 2 for M&D--literally the first 2 CDs I ever owned.

    The Feeling Begins for G&P, as well as about a dozen versions of Libertango in an attempt to find an arrangement similar to theirs.

    George Benson's Greatest Hits in order to get the version of "This Masquerade" that N&K used in their SLC free dance.

    That Sarah Brightman album with that song Bute used for her SP for what seemed like 5 seasons in a row.

    Those are ones that popped into my head, but I could actually go on all day...

    I made edits of a few of Michelle's programs. I was playing Slutskaya's Serenade SP music earlier today in a string quartet :)

    Oh yes, The Feeling Begins because of MK's iconic SP.

    I bought the Out of Africa soundtrack. Love that music and love them so much!

    There are several, but I can only think of a few at the moment. The most recent one was a "Finnish jazz" album by Kerkko Koskinen. It contained the two songs that Kiira Korpi used for her long program the two seasons before this last one, Crooked Room and Passenger to Copenhagen.

    The ones that really stand out are two songs from Matt Savoie's "Celtic and Scandinavian" long program in 1999-2001. It took quite a while to find out what the music was (McBrides by Leahy and Kapten Kapsyl by Vasen) since it was listed incorrectly, but it was well worth it.

    I've actually purchased/sourced music because of FSU recommendations by users. Have found some brilliant stuff through the diverse knowledge and tastes of the folks on here. Thanks for that y'all.

    The "Sherlock Holmes" soundtrack. :lol:.....and I like it.

    It appears that composers should pay famous and/or lyrical skaters to compete some of their more obscure creations.

    Dragon (Elvis)
    Apollo 13, Schindler's List, the entire Carmina Burana (performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra) - Paul Wylie
    The Mission - Matt Savoie (and others)
    First Knight, Independence Day, Gettysburg, Swing Kids, Lord of the Rings - Todd
    1492 (Todd & Elvis)
    Jurassic Park - Not because of Tonya Harding, though - I just love the music and John Williams soundtracks in general
    Little Women, Sense & Sensibility, Much Ado About Nothing - Tara
    Life is Beautiful - Dubreuil & Lauzon (bought it long before Jeremy skated to it)
    Robin Hood - Prince of Thieves - a pair skating team skated to it in the early 1990's - fell in love with the score
    Legends of the Fall - Dan Hollander

    BTW - one of my favorite CDs of all time - Summon the Heroes - John Williams & the Boston Pops - this Olympic CD (Atlanta 1996) has a lot of music that a number of skaters have skated to (about 1/2 of the CD), but I love all the music on it

    I would love to get a copy of East of Eden, if I ever come across it!

    I just purchased a CD of Neil Diamond's Jonathon Livingston Seagull. I had the LP from 30+ yrs ago and hadn't thought of it in many years. But, Adam Rippon's SP from last year made me want to hear it again.

    I'm not ashamed to say I bought all three of Edvin Marton's albums. (I'm even skating to one of his songs for this season! :lol:)

    I also recently bought the Top Gun soundtrack, but has anyone actually ever skated to that? (If not - FS, that is a severe fail.)

    Oh yeah, those too (although I think I got Danse Macabre after Jenny Kirk used it back in 2002)

    I also got the Ghost Waltzes and Piazzolla pieces that Jeremy used in the 2007-08 and 2008-09 seasons. Thanks Jeremy! :)

    Samuel Barber's pieces when Adam Rippon announced that he was skating to his Concerto for Violin and Orchestra. It also has the piece to which Matt Savoie skated his last SP

    This is sort of related: I had never seen the movie Frieda but after seeing Delobel and Schoenfelder's FD to the music I rented the DVD.

    Michelle Kwan skated to 'Winter Song' by Sara Bareilles at the 2009 Ice All Stars. Her program reminded me of why I miss her skating so much, the absolute gift of Michelle's joy to be on the ice. And the song is gorgeous.

    Man in the Iron Mask (mostly because of A/P, but Yagudin certainly didn't hurt)

    In high school I purchased (or asked my cousin to buy for me lol) the Anastasia soundtrack.
    I have East of Eden although I didn't purchase it, I downloaded it. :shuffle: I don't remember how; it might have been from rinkside or a website that a fan made with mp3s of music Michelle skated to. I don't think that site exits anymore. I'm not sure, I haven't checked in a really long time.
    I purchased a cd that had Rachmaninoff piano concertos and Vocalise.
    Walking on Sunshine, Color of Roses, Concierto De Aranjuez
