Who would make a good Harry Potter, do you think? Yuzuru?
Talking of famous - and John Williams - has anyone ever skated to Star Wars?
Definitely Yuzuru would make a great Harry. Do you remember that Swiss ski jumper whom everyone called Harry Potter in 2002 or 2006, Simon Ammann? He looked a lot like Yuzuru.
I don't know if anyone has ever skated to Star Wars. I can't recall anyone, but someone must have during all this time. It would be heaps of fun to see.
I can't access Youtube right now since I'm at the library, so I can't post specifics, but:
I'd love to see someone use the music from JAG. They put out a soundtrack with the score and it's so powerful. I'm not sure who would be good or could do it justice, other than maybe someone with Paul Wylie's style.
I'd also love to see music from Mission Impossible (the TV series) and Hawaii 5-0 (Original series). Both of their scores are out as well. Brasseur and Eisler could have done a great Mission routine.
Anything by Hans Zimmer (soundtrack composer) would be terrific.
Have any skaters ever used Bond music, as in the Classical crossover group? They've got some great stuff. My favorite of theirs is Explosive.
Oh, and I would KILL to see Delta Force. It's an early 1980s hostage movie with Chuck Norris and the theme is amazing. There's some strong notes that would scream for a really powerful, high jump, a really neat fast section that would lead to a lively footwork sequence, and just some powerful notes in general that could really bring out some great expression in a skater. The best would be if somone used it for an Olympic freeskate and then won. It could really get the crowd going.
I also love the theme to Disney's Fantasmic and Indiana Jones. I'm surprised Indiana has never been used, to be honest. Maybe one day.
A lot of the action soundtracks are pretty popular with boy skaters at the lower levels.
Quite a few. The most famous being Yagudin's WinterHave any skaters ever used Bond music, as in the Classical crossover group? They've got some great stuff. My favorite of theirs is Explosive.
