    How about a guy skating to Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody?

    And not some watered down instrumental version with violins. I'm talking full-on vocals.

    Kevin Reynolds, I'm looking at you.

    Yeah!! That would totally suit him!

    Love so many of these suggestions! Especially Game of Thrones - though it would have to be a crazy intense skater to live up to the intensity of the music.

    On the soundtrack suggestion, I think the Lord of the Rings movies have some exceptional music that could be put together into a beautiful program.

    Or music from Battlestar Galactica (which, in my opinion, had some of the best compositions ever for a TV show), especially their version of All Along the Watchtower.

    Oh, another current show that has a pretty good soundtrack is Revenge. It's actually recorded with a full orchestra, which is pretty unusual for a network show I think: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOgHd_iM5ok

    In a way, I think it's just a matter of time before someone skates to Game of Thrones. I hope: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BRaGFb64wg

    This is an awesome thread for discovering great new music, thanks to everyone!

    I spent quite some time discovering the Battlestar Galactica soundtrack and was really captivated by Violence And Variations, a beautiful score which I think has great potential for a FS music. The Shape Of Things To Come is a more condensed version with basically the same musical theme - just the right length for a SP as it stands!

    Gaetas Lament was simply ensorcelling. It needs a really intense pair to be up to the challenge, and maybe some musical arrangement to replace some of the slower start, but that's the kind of stuff I could see Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron skate to in the future... The way it gradually builds in intensity is just wow, and I could see them capture that.

    Oh this is fun!

    Has anybody mentioned music from the Downton Abbey soundtrack? I really love the opening theme.

    I always loved the main theme music from the Van Helsing soundtrack. Very powerful and exciting music.

    Final Fantasy VII soundtrack, Aerith's Theme. It's very quiet but the right person could pull it off as a very touching exhibition piece. I love all of Nobuo Uematsu's music.

    Homage to the Rabbits from the Cirque du Soleil Criss Angel show Believe. It's different and a little quirky but someone really creative could do something very unique with this.

    I was thinking Downton Abbey soundtrack, the music there is nice.

    Isn't Nobuo Uematsu the man behind Chrno trigger music?

    Yep. He's probably the best composer when it comes to video game music.

    To continue the Uematsu lovefest, I present Waterside from Blue Dragon. I also really love this remix of Roost Island (from Zelda Wind Waker) and I think it would make a fine piece of figure skating music.

    Cool thread!

    Totally second the suggestions regarding the soundtracks for Little Dorrit and North and South!!

    *Michael Conway Baker's magnificent score for Dorothy Hamill's ice show in the 1990s, Cinderella: Frozen in Time. The Prince's Lament, Transformation, and Fairy Godmother are some tracks that I think could be used for a program.
    *Talbot's ballet score of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (The Mad Hatter - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBPBqSudX18; The Flower Garden - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDJTsSxrIPM).
    *Erich Wolfgang Korngold's The Adventures of Robin Hood soundtrack (Procession & Epilogue - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clWzjqTqPKo; Love Theme - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3Qd97qEgFw).
    *James Newton Howard's Peter Pan (Fairy Dance - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQXaKw7dR3Y).
    *Prokofiev's Eugene Onegin (Waltz - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXzhhB_NZUk).
    *Tchaikovsky Symphony No.3 "Polish" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_4NPq6hyEY; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsosCfsJmkk).
    *Nox Arcana's Labyrinth of Dreams (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfUGtfpYzCM).
    *X-Ray Dog's The Vision (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kovYc9Llsvk).
    *Strauss' Rosenkavalier Suite (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCmw-nriHIA).
    *Respighi's Pini di Roma (Part IV - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCRsUknWcM8).
    *Fauré's Shylock (Épithalame - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWC8O1w_YLg).

    Someone should skate to the truly beautiful pieces from Amelie (and not the ones often skated to), this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b97-5Ea5i2U and this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbBw9UzrYOU (or at least include them in an Amelie program)

    I want Jason to do LOTR/Hobbit. Then he could ditch his traditional ponytail and go for elf-braids.

    Also:

    Apollo 13
