It needs to be someone with fast feet, who can summon up ferocity. That's kind of hard in the crowd of little high-voiced girlis that we have currently. Of today's skaters, maybe Joannie has it in her. Ooh--or Suzuki! Of the men, Daisuke, of course.
    Hasn't Akiko skated to this music already? As an exhibition piece.

Like when the music rises, I think of a flower blossoming, which could be the story told here. There's something very organice in Yu-na's skating, and yet she floats at the same time, which is why I think she could carry this perfectly.
    Nice.

    Reposting these, because we're on a Hisaishi roll:

    One Summer's Day, from Spirited Away
    Summer from Kikujiro
    Howl's Moving Castle Theme

    Ren, I think a Chinese skater used Princess Mononoke recently, but don't quote me on that.
    I'm vaguely aware that someone other than Lu Chen has used Hisaishi/Ghibli music, but I don't know who, either. And I can't believe I forgot Dragon Boy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4E566UwU5Q) and Reprise (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkSnCMPhaRY) from Spirited Away! The music from Howl's Moving Castle makes me think of waltzing. :D (Ok, now I suddenly have this strange image of Daisuke in my head, skating as Howl...)

    As for musicals, I'm always up for more skaters using pieces from musicals! Some pieces I prefer:
    Sunset Boulevard, Too Much In Love To Care: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_tpc2CwZ1c
    Aida, Every Story is a Love Story, Fortune Favors the Brave: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0O4zH6f0BBY ; Dance of the Robe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JII5BrnfhxM ; Written in the Stars: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuDKK0mRki8
    And can somebody please skate to Into the Woods? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsFx5835Qrg Even if it's just an exhibition?

    Libertango has actually been used a lot, especially in ice dance. The last time the OD was tango there were enough Libertangos to make your ears bleed.

    A very uplifting piece. I think this may also suit Mirai.

    I also like La Musica Notturna Della Strade Di Madrid by Boccherini for Mao. Can't find a yuotube for the section I like.

    For Mao's exhibition: Queen of ther Night aria from Magic flute http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OP9SX7V14Z4

    Mirai Nagasu, FS: Czardas by Vittorio Monti.

    I think it would fit her very well.

    For her Ex, I would prefer Mao to skate to a modern piece. I wouldn't mind if she skates to a pop ballad. As much as I like the calmer, balletic style, I feel Mao should continue going into new directions in terms of music. Going towards "Bells" direction didn't work out but staying in the "Chopin" phase isn't the answer either. Actually, I hope more ladies in general start doing more modern pieces for competitions instead of the the usual classical pieces over and over again.

    I'd be very interested to see Mao skate to contemporary pop. Actually, I want to see her do a program to an Ayumi Hamasaki song; I've read that she likes Ayu's works.

    I don't mind the ladies using classical pieces, but ideally the music should not have been used yet (or has not been used frequently), or if she insists on using an 'old warhorse', she should have a really innovative program that stands apart from others using the same music. That said, I think that a skater who wants to grow artistically should try different kinds of music.

    I also was hoping that Yuna would do something dramatic/balletic, that is, in addition to not retiring.
    My recommendation for her is Chopin's Ballade No.1. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eG1Olvh7vCU)
    What actually made me want her to skate to it is this video:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch#!v=Zj2B...eature=related
    It is part of Kameliendame from Stuttgart Ballet, a ballet version of the opera La Traviata. I don't necessarily want Yuna to act the same character, though I believe she and Wilson will be able to bring a great program out of this tragic story on passionate music.

    For Mao, I actually thought of the music from Howl's moving castle which was linked in this thread. But it has somewhat waltz-like rhythm and it has not been that long since she used waltz. I would recommend Melody in F by Rubinstein.
    (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNhX01wHcBg)
    Some might find it boring but I think it may go well with her soft knees to make a relaxed, elegant program.
    Chopin's Etude As-dur (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C90Mz4hvAzI) will also fit her style, but I'm afraid if she uses this it might turn out to be Nocturn II.

    And I want Besame Mucho for Daisuke! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iibS5UW1O5Y)
    A guitar version by Ulli Boegershausen (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5alOj2xYEYE) will be also nice, though I'm not sure it's the perfect arrangement for skating.

    For Mirai, I can think of two.
    Liebesleid by Kreisler(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jk16b9pvXY), and
    Last Carnival by Acoustic Cafe(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hG1gbOjWWdI).
    Both will sound great with her skating to a more mature, lyrical program.

    For Yuna: : Edward Scissorhands theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Uil_moZTQk (soft, edgy, great beat)

    LP: Lord of the Rings main theme by Howard Shore: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prZ4RWWku7Y (It will be breathtaking!)

    Actually, I've always thought of this track from the Edward Scissorhands OST for Yu-Na: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHWoT2mMfqc&feature=fvst
    But the Main Theme you posted is a great piece of music, too. If I had to pick a skater to use it, I would go for either Stephane or Daisuke. More likely Daisuke, though--he's as expressive as Stephane, and he can pull off Edward's hair.

    ETA: I can totally see Daisuke wearing something like Johnny Depp's costume in this film, too.
