    Why do skaters reuse the same old boring pieces of music?

    they know which pieces the judges know, and like... and accept... sometimes it's not worth the risk.

    Sometimes, choreographers assign skaters music. Lori Nichol is VERY insistent on skaters using her music choice. IMHO, I feel like she choreographs better programs to music that she choosed. Case in point, Joannie's Aranjuez to Kimmie's concierto mix this season.

    Other times, skaters have limited musical knowledge and I'm thinking of Evan, who stated that it's difficult to find classical music because he doesn't listen to classical music. I think it's rubbish. Film scores are music and I'm sure he likes watching films.

    Or maybe, skaters actually like the boring pieces of music or it meant something special to them. IIRC, I think Sasha did Malaguena to pay tribute to Kristi because she admired her?

    yes but a lot of people watch films and don't pay attention to the music underneath. They don't appreciate it until it's gone.

    I love many of the choices listed above. I'd like to thrown in my vote to "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir". I love that music and think it would be great for someone.

    "The Thin Red Line" has some great tracks


    Also, who skated to this, its a them from "Platoon". It sounds so familiar and beautiful.

    I would love Yu-Na to skate to Lust, Caution. Especially the one piece that is used when Wei Tang rides night tram on a rainy night. Exquisite work by Desplate.

    Little Miss Sunshine has a great soundtrack and Pan's Labyrinth also.
    And anything from Philip Glass would be great!
    Or some Gainsbourg's stuff.

    Don't know if this has been mentioned before, but I always liked the soundtrack of Peter Greenaways "The draughtman's contract" by Michael Nyman.

    There is a piece on it titled "Chasing sheep is better left to the sheperd" ( - no joke!) which I always thought would be great to skate to. As far as I know it was not done till now, but maybe I missed something.

    I enjoy picturing how Fedor Andreev would skate to "The Heart Asks For Pleasure First" from "The Piano" soundtrack with Jeffrey Buttle's choreography : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dPS-EHl-FE

    I also hope someone in the future considers using the score from the "Rome" HBO series. I think that would be a very interesting choice.

    anything by the genius ALEXANDRE DESPLAT
    (benjamin button, lust caution, girl with the pearl earring, painted veil etc)

    or as a tangent from delobel/schoenfelder's success with michael nyman's the piano - GATTACA?!

    p.s. nothing from slumdog millionaire- if people thought D/W were robbed at worlds....desplat was robbed at the oscars...SM OST is...not music
