    Kimmie is doing The Feeling Begins? Add that to the list of songs that I am really tired of. Nothing against Kimmie but that music needs to die.

    I am by no means an Inoue and Baldwin fan (well mostly not of Baldwin, I don't mind Rena so much) but I really liked their Magic Bird Of Fire short program. Actually wasn't that the year they used Beethoven's Last Night for their free skate? I liked both those programs. I'm curious to see what they will do with Wagner. Btw, I read that Pasha Grishuk was doing their programs this year. I'm not sure if it's short, long or both.

    The Feeling Begins may be overused, but I love it. But, I don't know if it is a good choice for Kimmie. A skater that IMO isn't yet good nor in dramatic and passionate music nor in slow and lyrical music. The good choice for her SP IMO could be something pop, jazzy, something funny. She should try to express more her funny side. It could work for her and it will be something original and who knows, maybe even appreciated by the judges. A new style that could work for her more. My suggestions for her = Her priorities are certainly the 3/3 and the 3axel. She should work more on this and try less to be an ice princess. Work less on artistry, or better she can develop a different artistry. She can't compete in this department with Zhang, Yu Na and Mao who are miles ahead of her. She has some chances to beat those three (to various degrees) if she maximes her jumps (3axel and technically perfect 3/3s) and play with an original style.

    Now I'm curious to know the musical choice for her LP.

    The Feeling Begins is one of those pieces of music that does not relate to some pot boiler story. The skater must bring the drama to the audience with body language. Who besides Kwan can do that? Most figure skates are not capable of performing to music without a story. Maybe Yu Na. I dunno know.

    I love Kimmie and I love The Feeling Begins, but this could be the Marriage from Hell. I certainly hope her coach and choreographer know what they're doing.

    OTOH, who knows?

    Danielle Kahle's FS music for this season will be "Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor" according to her USFS bio.

    Didn't Sasha skate to this music? Or am I thinking of someone else?

    Sasha did use it for her Long Program during the 2002-2003 season.

    Can anyone tell some of us a skater in the past who skated to this music so that I can remember it? I wonder is it for her LP or SP. I hope it works. Didn't she say after last worlds that she may try to pick her own music this time?

    Khale's music sounds like a good choice for her.

    MK skated to it for her 02-03 SP and Evan Lysacek skated to it for his 06-07 SP.

    Oksana Baiul skated to it, as did Alexei Yagudin (Stars on Ice program where he did some aerial gymnastics), and Kurt Browning...

    Also Grischuk and Platoff, 1997 free dance.

    BTW, The Feeling Begins is the first song on the soundtrack of the 1988 Martin Scorcese film, The Last tempatition of Christ. The accompanying screenplay goes like this:

    JESUS (V.O.)
    The feeling begins. It's a light
    tingling at first. Right on the top
    of my head. Very tender. Like a
    caress. Soft wings carrying me to
    Paradise. Then the pain starts.

    Now we see JESUS, the son of Mary, 28 years-old, sleeping
    under an olive tree. The mid-morning sun (OVER-EXPOSED) shines
    on his stubby face. He is dreaming.

    JESUS (V.O.)
    It feels like the bird has grabbed
    me from behind. Just above the neck.
    Talons slip underneath the skin and
    work and claw their way up the back
    of my neck. Then the real pain begins.
    Each claw digs into the soft matter
    behind my brain, and then across the
    top of my head toward my eyes. Just
    before they reach my eyes, they dig
    down...

    Jesus wakens. He looks around.

    JESUS (V.O.)
    And I remember. I have to make a
    cross.

    While he is still speaking he reaches up to touch the back
    of his head, where the pain started. He pulls his fingers
    away. There is blood on them.
