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.

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.
Just wanted to thank everyone for the good wishes for Thursday morning. Off to Toronto tomorrow morning and the butterflies are starting to rebel...
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.
Welcome tp Golden Skate, Chloe. Thanks for joining us.
Others that are good:
Talented Mr Ripley

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.
Addicted to handsome, artistic male skaters ;-)
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.
