    There was also a Japanese skater who skated to it some time ago, can't remember who though.
    That was a very nice skate for her age. Looks like she has a bright future in FS.

    I could totally see Ashley Wagner skate to The Piano Guy's "Rockelbel's Canon (Pachelbel's Canon in D) - 4 Cellos"... it gives her both that "classic skating song" but the power and fire that is perfect for her... not sure if it'd work for a competitive program so much... but I think it could!

    That's actually really cool! I had never heard this. Thanks!
    To be honest, I was kinda hoping Carolina Kostner would use this music for her last season.
    To me, it would have been "completing the circle" for Carolina since she burst onto the big scene with it in 2003 and used a slightly different version of it again in 2007 and everybody knows she'll end her career after this.
    I still liked the lightness of the 2003 version best.

    While we're at it:
    Since I had never heard of Lukas Kaugars (USA) before, I checked him out .
    That was a beautiful instrumental arrangement to Hallelujah.
    I'd love to know what exact version that is - or if someone arranged it just for him.

    edit: look at that! lil' Frenchie found it out all by himself! "Hallelujah by Robin Olson" Loved it.

    *making a happy face*

    Lukas and Timothy Dolensky are my favourite non-bye skaters

    I keep forgetting Lukas is a clocky though. Then my eyes boggle when he goes the wrong way.

    I love that SP for him, and the costume is so nice too, elegant and understated.

    glad you enjoyed it. look up the piano guys on youtube - they have some FANTASTIC arrangements of current hits... absolutely beautiful. I'm hoping I can see them when they're here in a month.

    Another song that I would love to see as an exhibition (again for Ashley... it just seems like the lyrics would suit her) is from Disney's Frozen (the music is amazing) and it's the main track from the movie: "Let It Go" - http://youtu.be/moSFlvxnbgk

    Loved the Piano Guys, they really do have several fantastic arrangements.
    Since comparing different arrangements to Pachelbel's Canon in D, I'm happy to have found the music Carolina Kostner skated to in 2003 (without the US commentators!), imo the best arrangement for FS!
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXtnxuMWUL8
    That yt guy uploads/arranges a lot of FS program musics, incl. this captivating favorite of mine in Ice Dance: it's from Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron, a future great pair of France who just missed qualifying for Sochi - their FD music is still awesome:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZwcLUho-Oo
    There's even Jeremy Abbott's Lillies of the Valley(Pina) SP arrangement!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ID70VRLX_DM Seriously, you'll feel like a kid in a candy shop!

    OK, I'm not sure where to ask this question, but hopefully there will be someone here who can help:
    Does anyone know what the music is you can hear at 14:40 here? With the opera singer's voice (sounds a bit like the voices in "Flower Duet" by Leo Delibes) and instrumental beats? (right after the medal ceremony)
    If you don't know, but know of a better thread to ask this question, let me know...
    thanks!

    -EDIT: I got the answer: Aria by Yanni -Thanks ozmodiar

    I love Yuki Kajiura and would cry tears of joy seeing a beautiful program skated to her music

    Hear Our Prayer (from Tsubasa)

    A Song of Storm and Fire (instrumental)

    Actually, Kelsey Wong (a Canadian Junior Lady) is using this piece for her Short this season.

    For soft and lyrical music:
    Poeme from Songs a secret garden- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkufuvmquYQ
    Il etait une fois le diable by Ennio Morricone. Joannie Rochette skated to this in 2002/03 and 2003/04. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DV0QasRIg_4 Perfect music for her, it's soft and lyrical but also powerful, just like Joannie's skating.
    Une Ange passe by Alain Lefevbre, Kimmie Meissner skated to it in 2008-09. It's soft and lyrical but uplifting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPfpLi34UE0

    For more upbeat music
    Anything by the piano guys. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXOd5lSObUM
    I generally liked Tara Lipinski's music because it was always age appropriate, youthful and free but not too juniorish.
    I like Kevin Reynolds's SP,

    I like the idea of video game music, there aresome great orchestrations out there.

    Next year, when they're able to skate to music with lyrics, I hope we see more people skating to traditional opera arias. Such as:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJJW0dE5GF0 (Mozart, Queen of the Night Aria from The Magic Flute)

    I've also long wanted someone to skate to the soundtrack from A Little Princess, my favorite movie as a child: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZV3O...Y5ioTXpUvGoJEO

    Another soundtrack I see a lot of potential in is from the 2004 miniseries North and South: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NeH8s...vn3BwPpBZLgsYZ

    Yes, I agree - the soundtrack to North & South is lovely - as is the one for Little Dorrit

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

    and Lorna Doone:

    While we were watching the montage before the men's victory ceremony, my husband said that he thought Javi ought actually to skate to that music:

    Immortal by Two Steps From Hell:

    You know, when I posted that, I had this feeling in the back of my mind, I think someone may have done that when the movie was new. But I couldn't remember who. Oh, Surya! I actually appreciated some of Surya's qualities but let's just say I think the door is still wide open for someone to do a definitive Little Princess program! LOL
