Wow I'm thrilled by Mao's choices. I remember suggesting Chopin Balade for her couple years ago, and my dream is coming true!!!
"Goldenskate lady" is just priceless. LOL

Sarah and Drew posted more music news in their latest blog entry. Here's the relevant music part from their entry:
Amanda Evora and Mark Ladwig have chosen "The Mask of Zorro" for their new short program. (I love this choice for them!)
Felicia Zhang and Taylor Toth will be skating to "Claire de Lune" for their short program, choreographed by Tim Murphy. Irina Romanova choreographed their long program, to "Miss Saigon."
Jeremy Ten is keeping last year's long program to "Queen Symphony" although he says he and David Wilson have re-choreographed the entire program.
Cindy Stewart choreographed Amanda Dobbs' new short program to "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and re-choreographed her long program, last year's "Concierto de Aranjuez." Dobbs and her pairs partner Joseph Jacobsen will be keeping last year's short program, and Renée Roca has choreographed a new long program for them, to "Bohemian Rhapsody."
Richard Dornbush told us he will be keeping his short program, "Elena," by the Brian Setzer Orchestra. His new long program will be to music from the movie Sherlock Holmes; both programs were choreographed by Cindy Stewart.
LOVE Zorro for Amanda and Mark! All the other new music choices seme pretty good too!
Wow, I can't believe skaters actually read this forum. I wouldn't touch this with a 10-foot pole. But maybe Mirai has more pluck and courage than me. Anyway, Tiny, don't feel bad, I think it's cool that Mirai read what you had to say even if she didn't much like it! I wonder what Mirai thought about all the rest of the music choices we dreamed up for her, if she read that thread... If she did she should know how popular she is just by the fact that so many people picked music for her - even if we do sometimes have criticism.
rodgers and hammerstein's Carousel waltz for the Shibutanis' OD: i understand that this was probably written (and performed) in the eras stated and declared for the original dance but...will this be a similar take to the OD by Domnina/Shabalin in 2008-2009 (waltz_________ by Dmitri Shostakovitch)
in my opinion although the music is very "old"disney-esque (aka, to me, 50s ish) it doesn't totally capture the character of the theme....such a broad time range.
perhaps they just don't want to be cliche and use grease or something, but not negative or positive - always excited.
and the shibutanis are also using Chaplin for their FD music
In the short dance format, there is no time frame specified. Only if the SD did not pass were we going to see dances of the 50's, 60's and 70's. . A section of the Golden Waltz is to be skated. The rest of the dance may be foxtrot, waltz or tango. Shibutanis are doing an all waltz SD (short dance), which works for me.
So it's all good. Rail on
