    "Empty Chairs at Empty Tables" From Les Miserables. Lots of LesMis has been done, but this particular song has not, and it would be PERFECT for a short program. It has the right swells and crescendos. I can see where the footwork would be. It would be perfect.

    I thought a great exhibition number for a dance team would be
    Brooks and Dunn's "My Heart is Lost to You". I know, it's a country song but it still has a great dance rhythm to it. And it is a great song.

    I would love to see someone skate to Moon River. Yes I am obsessed with Breakfast at Tiffany's. But I think that it would be really cool if one of the ladies picked Moon River for their LP. And I don't care if Josee did do it. I wasn't a FS fan when she used that music.

    I'm bored to death of classical and soundtrack music. How uninspired! While I realize that skaters like the tempo to vary, this can be done with careful mixing and cutting -- in other words, a bit of ol' fashioned WORK.

    So, what might I use?
    I loved the suggestion of "Europa" by Gato Barbieri.
    "Feel the Beat" by Darude
    "Ciega Sordomuda" by Shakira
    For you 60's fans, "Philly Dog" by the Mar-Keys
    "You've Got To Pay The Price" by Al Kent
    And how about the old techno standby, "Plastic Dreams" by Jaydee?

    To paraphrase Blue Oyster Cult; Skaters don't fear the rhythm!

    I just watched The Ghost and The Darkness yesterday and some of the music is still rattling around in my head. There were several pieces from the film Congo that had the same effect.

    I think we're missing something by not looking into the music of
    Africa. Wasn't Paul Simon's come back album based on the music of South Africa? And that did very well.

    Or how about some of the music of South America; there's a couple of 'tunes' from the film Vibes that gets my toes tapping.

    Just a couple of off the wall suggestions that have not been used before.

    Okay maybe people will think I'm crazy but ever since I heard the song "Come Undone" by Duran Duran, I could see Bourne & Kraatz skate to it. Either them or Belbin & Agosto/ Wing & Lowe. It's got a little perkiness in it, though it would have to be a pro program or a show...

    Radiohead may not be out of the question for competition programs. Pianist Christopher O'Reilly just released a CD of his piano transcriptions of Radiohead songs, and they're great.

    Rachel - In order to do a tap impersonation on ice the music must include the tap sounds. They just don't work from blades to ice. this is a form of foot synching.

    Much toe rake work, I believe has to be used. Check out the master, Kurt Browning.

    When exactly did Yagudin foot synch tapping?

    he did a program with a typewriter sound last Christmas... it was, for me, his most boring one I've seen in a long while...

    The idea was a good one, but I admit that I missed the jumps. And - sorry to say so - I prefer Yags in competitions, but then I only know him from tv, maybe watching him live in a show would make me change my mind.
    Back to Typewriter: the footwork was great! :D
