    Definitely Lyra Angelica for Kwan, but also Song of the Black Swan

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFp7RVrihvk

    For Sasha, I often think of that waltz she did as her 2002 Olympic short program, "Sentimental Waltz"--she did such a good job, and the music was so haunting and individual

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIie7mouHpQ

    Of course, Love Story for Sale and Pelletier
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRWHwt91oj0

    Browning: I think some of his pro programs have more impact for me than Casablanca. Here's Singin' in the Rain:

    Wylie: Henry V for me.

    And of course, La Strada
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddAM_hvSsvo

    Pakhomova & Gorshkov their Olympic FD 1976 Flamenco (gorgeous!)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acOE5hYmhRg

    Usova & Zhulin
    I just loved them at first sight-this Indian Temple Dance FD in 1988
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kMNozY4jyNw

    Duchesnays-I think it has to be Missing I
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgo5-w7smSM

    Grishuk & Platov The Feeling Begins FD 1987

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iju_RarH3rk

    Wilson & McCall Elite Syncopations
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoEIZiCYSRo

    P&B-Although they skated their Clown program twice at Worlds, and it fits them like a glove, for me their Madness program was much more what they were about, but I most remember their Les Miserables program when I think of them:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbKG9NZpX98

    Belbin & Agosto-I think I would go with their Let's Get Loud OD, since they performed it endlessly in exhibitions:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewIqfjh1qvY
    But I prefer Shadritsa
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HmNY...eature=related

    Navka & Kostamarov -Ain't No Sunshine when She's Gone
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTY0rs7OQHA

    Torvill & Dean. Although most remember their Bolero, and their best FD was for my money Mack & Mable, I would say their most memorable & my favorite piece was their Paso Doble OD. But Signature? For the many times they have performed some version of it, have to be Bolero.

    Denkova & Staviyski, their 2003 Baroque OD
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGFbFEDI6DA

    Delobel & Schoenfelder, I think their Frida FD
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zc38uESNkk

    Domnina & Shabalin-has to be Masquerade Waltz, although Dance of the Spirits is very them, too.

    Doris, what treasures! Funnily enough, I was just thinking of Klimova and Ponomarenko's Bach Air program the other day, because I heard the music playing. And when I look up Denkova and Staviski, a favorite couple, I always look for that wonderful baroque OD. Thanks also for including Blumberg and Siebert and Rahkamo and Kokko, and the Duchesnays' "Missing." I look forward to watching every one of these. I love watching "Missing" and then watching Torvill and Dean performing their version.

    With my favorite skaters it is not so easy to define a signature program. With Michelle it is almost always the last program I watch that is my favorite and stays that way until I watch another one. Too many great moments and impossible to narrow it down to one.

    With Sasha it is about her qualities more than a program. I still have never seen another skater who moves like her, with such beautiful posture, lines and stretch.

    Something about Chen-Lu's skating always made such an impression on me. In '98 she was not technically quite her best and still she managed to absolutely mesmorize the arena crowd and viewers around the world with the beauty of her skating. There was a gentleness and quiet dignity about her skating that made a powerful impression on me.

    Love the commentator's rant on the costumes! LOL I actually really like the costumes, way better than a lot of what we see now!

    Pang & Tong's 2004 LP "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgeLH5nrq9s

    IMO theirs' was the best interpretation of this music by any skater or skating pair. Part of me really hopes they'll go back to this for 2014.

    Michelle has so many amazing programs that it's hard to pick a signature. That is what sets her apart from other skaters.

    I would not be able to limit myself to one in your DVD I'd include Salome, Rachmaninoff, Lyra Angelica, East of Eden, Tosca, Aranjuez, and throw in Fields of Gold for good measure.

    I'd not forget Irina Slutskaya, Her signature without a doubt:

    And Tara Lipinski:

    It's even funnier when you know the commentator is Toller Cranston, infamous in his eligible days for getting criticized by other commentators for his costumes.

    Completely agree, as well as Joubert's Rise program.

    And, Castile and Okolski's Requiem for a Dream LP (especially at Nationals)
