Since you asked, I would like to recommend the theme from Downton Abbey for Alissa Czisny. Am I crazy that it would not be perfect that Czinsy, in a costume inspired by the character Lady Mary Crawley, skate to this trendy yet classy—crazy-classy—theme, as far as figure skating judges go? Don’t you think it would be awesome—AND—that the judges would eat it up for her short program?
Here’s the music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7ULKKJ5UpI
(Bibliography: The idea of a ladies’ program to the Downtown Abbey theme was not mine. I know someone else said this first on GS, I think maybe skateluvr, but god who knows. It was first suggested as a LP for Ashley Wagner months ago, for whom, I think, the music is too interesting.)
Here are my recommendations, matched to the artistic abilities, of other US female skaters:
For Agnes Zawadzksi, something sultry: my recommendation is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pu2NzXb4x1s
For Ashley Wagner, something demographically tested and safe: my recommendation is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiGQ6zhEwWo
For Gracie Gold, something teenage emotions can understand : [link to “Call Me Maybe,” a bit hard to find on YouTube for free. Ha ha.]
Do I mean to start some debates on Golden Skate with this post? You betcha!
