    No news of Jeff Buttle's music yet? Shawn Sawyer's sounds interesting.

    Without a doubt. Sasha used them the best.

    That's so funny, when I was going through the list, I thought his choices were fabulous. Different strokes...

    more on Pang & Tong

    A little more tidbits on Pang & Tong's choreography.

    They have updated their blog talking about working on the long program, I can sort of understand what they've been talking, but hard to translate those terminology into English:

    http://blog.sina.com.cn/pangqing_tongjian

    Some rough translation:

    The LP choreography is close to finish line. Almost all of their transitions have incorporated dancing elements and they are very difficult. They did a preliminary run through of each transitioning element and felt it will be a great challenge to their stamina. They hope after intense training, this new program will bring their skating skills and transitions to a new level.

    I remember watching them and trying to trace Morozov's influence, but I failed. So I decided the guy was just a mortal.
    Maybe you couldn't trace the influence because they removed the straightline footwork in the pairs SP!

    VERY interesting FS choices for Shawn. But sadly according to the film music buffs I know, Painted Veil is one of the weakest scores of last year, almost as bad as Babel's was. (and I'm a Santaolalla fan!)

    Oye - Zorba the Greek! Great music but soooo over used. With the Sr. Dance requirement of original folk music, I was afraid we'd see tons of Zorba's and Riverdance......heaven help us if B/A, D/S or any of the other top teams come out with Riverdance frown2::frown2:

    African drum beats would be cool! Has that been done?

    Someone will come out with Riverdance I'll bet. Personally I hope not since the B & K fan in me doesn't want anyone else to touch that music.

    i agree. saw the movie and was very let down by the score. they really could have been creative and used some intersting chinese instrunments or somthing but it was really boring.

    I agree. Sasha did an excellent job.
    Sasha used poular music, but it was diffrent when she skate do it. you could not interpret it better than her... and i have never seen really any skaters use dar eyes

    Lots of other skaters have used this music, including Brian Joubert.

    I'm aware of that, thanks. I was just saying that when it comes to dance I associate it with B and K. I thought Joubert used Lord of the Dance though.
