Sotskova did a good job with 'Black magic woman' back in the day (at a way younger age) so I have no doubts about her doing 50SoF.
I bet you are horrified each time someone skates to "Roxanne", Roxanne being a hooker. An ice dance team even won the Olympic gold with this theme, how the heck did you survive ? It must have been painful.
SP: Kill Bill
I love the SP choice, don't recall anyone ever skating to 'Kill Bill' before.Terrific FS choice.
Akiko Suzuki, Yulia Lipnitskaya and Alexandra Trusova just to name few.don't recall anyone ever skating to 'Kill Bill' before.
Seems you have detailed Hongo insights to express such concerns?Though I do wonder if Hongo will understand that the film/story is a satire in certain respects. She probably hasn't watched the film.
. Still, to be more precise, V/M's program was more about Satine and Christian, not about Roxanne. And Satine was a show star and a courtesan, not a simple "hooker".I bet you are horrified each time someone skates to "Roxanne", Roxanne being a hooker.

(eta: I've already added this info to the program music spreadsheet)... she had her FS to "Seven Nation Army" choreographed by Karen Kwan back in April:

Jordan Moeller recently finished choreographing her SP to "Hide and Seek" by Imogen Heap (clip from when they started the process in April): https://www.instagram.com/p/Bw5iAS7gvT2/
Do you not know what Scheherazade is about?
Not in this instance:Fifty Shades + Anybody =
GHOST IN THE SHELL!!! As a huge Scarlett Johansson fan, I’m SO down for this!Rika Hongo
SP: Kill Bill
FS: Ghost in the Shell (chore by Shae-Lynn Bourne)
The storyline is crap, but the soundtracks to all three movies are good. Not to mention, “I put a spell on you” is from the 50 Shades soundtrack and has been used to death in the skating world, so it’s not an uncommon choice for music. I trust Maria’s version will be tasteful and enjoyable.Fifty Shades + Anybody =
It’s not old rock and roll? What miracle is this?
I am talking about the song, which is about a hooker, not about a program in particular. It was inspired to Sting by the hookers working close to a crappy hotel he and his band were staying at in Nashville in the 70s. Countless skaters have used Roxanne way before V/M. BTW the fact that a courtesan only sleeps with upper-class men doesn't make her less of a prostitute. Still, to be more precise, V/M's program was more about Satine and Christian, not about Roxanne. And Satine was a show star and a courtesan, not a simple "hooker".
Well, you mentioned an "ice dance team" who had won Olympic gold with the Roxanne theme. It must have been V/M you were talking about, no ? But, okay, okay, I got it. I apologize for my simple comment, and can we finally move on?Thanks for clarifying something I wasn't talking about
Interesting that this random videogame track has now made it into two top level FS programs. V&M 2017 FD being the other one.
The Yently FD! I thought I was the only person who loved that FD. The choreography and connecting movements were excellent. Easily F&S's best FD, imo.I still remember that Butterfly Programme Scalli did with partner and Camerlengo choreographed right? Still waiting to be grabbed by programme like that in ice dance.
Coeur de Pirate is fairly popular and well-known in Quebec (she does indie-pop stuff, not just instrumental), so it's really random that Marie-France would know the music. I knew her work (although not that album so much) before V/M used it. And then DM/G likely know it from V/M's program.Interesting that this random videogame track has now made it into two top level FS programs. V&M 2017 FD being the other one.
True, a version of it is on the Fifty Shades soundtrack, and thanks for pointing that out as well. Although, we all know that's not where the song originated. Everybody and their brother have covered this song, with the most memorable and famous rendition hailing from Nina Simone (it was even the title of her autobiography ). Annie Lennox covered it for Fifty Shades... But maybe most of us aren't really familiar with the original origination.“I put a spell on you” is from the 50 Shades soundtrack
