Dreaming and dancing
Sheherazade and Carmen.
Those two are most typical skating music across levels from litte kids to adults. It's just that they bring in dramas easily.
But Evan's Sheherazade was not great in terms of interpretation because he just does not have that softness. I wondered why he did not go for Carmen.
At the rink. Again.
Because Evan did Carmen already
Dreaming and dancing
Right. I think that Evan is better with Fire Birds, Carmen etc, that type of marching songs.
Well, I vote for the Pirates of the Carribean.
Now it's a bit boring... and nobobay could do a unique program to it (except for Javier Fernandez and Mirai Nagasu)
Sheherazade and The Phantom of Opera
oppps, and I forgot.
Carmen belongs to Navka and Kostomarov (the best free dance of ever!!!)
The Future Mrs. Evan Lysacek
Carmen for sure. At EVERY competition, someone seems to be using it.
Beliver in Sasha's Perfect Program
What about memoirs of a ghiesha and the mission? Especially at the lower level skaters.
I loved Miki's Geisha program, I think it was one of her best. The Mission isn't used that much, I only know of Alissa Czsiny and Amanda Dobbs, and I really liked both of their programs set to that music.

I agree with what everyone else said and I would like add these to the list.....
Romeo and Juliet
Firebird (after this season I think I have had enough firebird)
On cloud nine and refusing to come down!
You serious? I like N/K but I thought their Carmen was really uninspiring, nothing particularly outstanding or memorable. I far prefer their Pink Panther/ Austin Powers FD - Tatiana is such a DIVA.

With regards to skaters "owning" pieces post-Vancouver, I think few will ever use Mahler's Symphony No 5, especially the Adagietto. It will be difficult to top V/M imo, and that music isn't particularly skate friendly. Same goes for Gershwin's Piano Concerto. I think we'll see more Bond, POTO and Scherezades around though.
Nonsense, and feels almost as dumb as burning books we don't like.
Here is a Scheherazade from 1990 Worlds - winner of a controversial Silver medal.
Now if ISU had followed the silly suggestions here and "retired" music then we would have missed this Sheherazade from 2009 Worlds:
There are reasons certain music is used so frequently and the whining about it never ceases to amaze me.
At times I find it interesting comparing skaters from different eras - seeing how they interpreted the same piece of music - and in a broader sense watching how skating has evolved over the years.
We will see more of Scheherazade and Carmen in the future. Many of us will enjoy the new performances and then go back and watch performances from the past.
Is that really such a bad thing?
