Hopefully the international judges will have a more open mind this time around and teams will stretch out and not play it safe.
There are the warhorses:
I will survive, Stayin' Alive, Do the hustle, Le Freak etc, We are Family, Hot stuff etc.
But there's tons more (don. I would _drool_ for a disco OD.
I have to say that 50's, 60's, 70's seems like a hot mess of pandering to the lowest common denominator.
I'm pretty sure they did some editing to the original document. I think the original version probably looked something like this:
Dear Oksana Domnina and Maxim Shabalin:

Sincerely, the ISU
I guess that the suggestion for teams to use folk music from their own countries has something to do with avoiding some 20 kalinka, gypsies and gopaks from, say, Mexican skaters (I know there aren't any mexicans right now, it was just for example... what happened to the Muñanas by the way?).
And this just disheartened me
Like, yeah, we put finnstep there to make you happy, but keep in mind there might not be compulsories next season...hahaha*NOTE: Even if there is a proposal on the Agenda of the Congress 2010 to have only two segments for Ice Dance
events, the current Constitution requires that the Compulsory Dances and the rhythms for the Original Dance
2010/2011 are announced in this Communication.
