    Dream programs

    To what song(s) do you wish someone (who?) would skate?

    Evan Lysacek: music from the soundtrack to "From Hell" (I'm not even being snide-- the music is good!)

    Michelle Kwan-- "Half Acre" by Hem

    I know this one will never happen: Paul Wylie to the music from the soundtrack to "Band of Brothers"

    Kurt Browning: "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White"

    Just to name a few...

    I've always wanted to see

    Either Michelle Kwan or Kurt Browning skate to Hotel California... simply to see the footwork

    Somebody skate to Prince and Jimi Hendrix's Wind Cries Mary - so far the closest I've come is Joanie skating to Little Wing...

    Scott Hamilton skated to Kiss. Scott Williams and Emanuel Sandhu have skated to Purple Rain. And for a real obscure one: Lily Lee (Korean champion, 94 Olympian) skated to either Cream or Peach-can't remember which one.

    Now, I've heard Eman sing Purple Rain, but never skate to the bestest song ever... Any idea where I might find this happiness in a download?

    Now, that's what I'm talking about!!! I'm so sick of classical music in skating... I mean, am I really supposed to believe that the only great music is either from 100 years ago or a movie??

    First thing that came to mind that seemed to make sense musically was Get Off. At this point in time I would say Irina would be wonderful for that tune and its message, but the speed might be a little much right now. But the heart rates would rise. Ira to Girl by Tori Amos

    Of course Exhibitions. Some I did put the music to the video but to see them acutely perform to it would be much different. But ITA

    Still I want You Look So Fine by Garbage and Fumie also to Stay (Faraway, So Close!) by U2, BUT MORE THEN ANY Come by Namie Amuro - that song I envision the whole "current" Japanese team doing an exhibition to it, but if Fumie skated to that solo or not.... *faint*

    This topic comes up a lot. Ideas change as knowledge becomes clearer. Also my thoughts of Kurt and the Bare Naked Ladies came to fruition - not the song I suggested but I got a whole program! Now I am thinking Faded by Ben Harpper, has great dynamics but would require editing too, just because of the length of refrain but another that Kurt would just . I could also see him skate to TVC 1 5 by David Bowie.

    Still - Tanith and Ben to Love Cats or Plainsong by the Cure.

    Sasha, Everything You Want by Vertical Horizon and Freedom 90 by George Michael.

    Den & Sat Wicked Garden by STP, Much better then my original thought with Jenny Kirk. Jenny is now just bringing to mind the Disney Princesses.

    Sarah M to Toxic by Britney Spears, (I know I admit I am a fan of her voice ) but I think the pauses and the "head notes" would go great with her hand movements. And that Red and Black Unitard

    Something tells me Evan would be great to the Eels - Last Stop: This Town

    There are some parts of Al Di Meola's Wizard that could be put together into a nice SP IMO. But it still has that spanish flavor that some seem to be getting tired of.

    Edge Hill by Groove Armada could be edited into a great number IMO, envisioning Melissa and Denis.

    As Much as I am not a fan of Christina Aguilera, Johnny skating to What a Girl Wants sounds like It would be to fun. Against anything that I think would make skating more popular, but I would like it And I do enjoy that song when not thinking of C.A.

    Jeff Buttle to Cemetery Gates or There Is a Light That Never goes Out by the Smiths

    Material Girl by Madonna for Katy Taylor, not cause I think she is, nothing to read into here, just think she would do an awesome job and the think with the pink Hummer it comes to mind.

    Taylor Firth to Taylor by Jack Johnson. It would be very difficult IMO but she could use those hands and arms the beginning is a obvious.

    I don't know if it was Kimmie's Unwritten that got me thinking Avril Lavigne, but now I would like to see Jamie and David to Complicated , maybe it is the Avril /Kimmie similarity got me thinking and the "complicated" controversy J and D went through. I also like that song.
    Kimmie I would like to see put the world on its side and skate Crash Into Me by Dave Matthews with a lyrical style that is just waiting to come crashing out of her.

    Shizuka Shine by INXS

    Miki to Everlong by the Foo Fighters. The beat is deceiving in it's speed, it is acutely a slower song.

    Shen and Zhao skating to Moon Over Bourbon Street by Sting - huge stretch there I know.

    Thats enough from Sean

    /QUOTE]

    I would love to see Paul skate to music from "Band of Brothers." I think he would pull it off very well. Actually Todd originally planned to skate to "Band of Brothers" during the 2001/2002 Olympic season, but he switched to "Lord of the Rings." I wouldn't mind if he skated to "Band of Brothers" music either. I that soundtrack (and it doesn't bother me at all that he has skated to a number of soundtracks).

    AHHH, Band of Brothers! How Saving Private Ryan SHOULD have sounded! RIP that genius Michael Kamen!

    How swweet would it be for Ilia and Liza to skate to Father & Daughter by Paul Simon?

    I think The Ten Commandments is a phenomenal score, and really I can't see anyone else doing it more justice than Plushenko... The footwork REALLY fits, set to the right parts of the music.

    The score to Alan Menken's The Hunchback of Notre Dame would be a magnificent choice for Alexei Yagudin too.
