    Mao Asada - 2013 GPF - The best of the ladies SP this season
    Yuna Kim - 2007 Worlds - the girl was on fire.
    Akiko Suzuki - 2011-12 - I loved every time she performed her SP that season.
    Michelle Kwan - 1996 Worlds - Magical is the best description I can give her performance

    I loved Sasha's 2004 Worlds SP even better. I like this thread because Sasha gets on many of the lists

    I also think I like Yuna Kim's Dance Macabre at 2009 worlds better than her Olympic SP.

    ETA: Although now that I'm rewatching Dance Macabre after a very long time, Kim really was helped by the change of rule on the spiral sequence. That part really detracts from the program. (Doesn't help to hear Scott Hamilton blathering about her 'perfect positions' (huh?) ). Look back so many years later, perhaps her Bond piece holds together better as a piece of choreography. Plus, she had the slightly harder triple-triple combination.

    the spiral combo looks better on her here:

    Is it just the angle of the camera, or the way it was integrated into the choreo or that Kim improved in a year?
    Still, DM is an electric performance.

    1. Even though I prefer Mao to Yuna I must say Yuna's Danse Macabre (especially the Worlds version) is my favorite SP by far. It would have been amazing if she skated it at the Olympics (I like Bond too, but not as much as Danse Macabre). That music was perfect for her in every way, it was a masterpiece.

    2. Caro's 2007 Worlds SP. That was absolutely perfect and magical

    3. Mao's 2006 SA SP and Mao's 2008 Worlds SP (I love them equally as much)

    4. Yuna's 2007 SP

    5. Akiko's 2011 NHK trophy SP (the audience clapping helped as well and the joy in her skating was close to none)

    Top 5 off the top of my head...

    1. Michelle Kwan: 1998 Rachmaninoff (the musicality, pacing and delivery of this is just unmatched)
    2. Sasha Cohen: 2004 Malaguena (the passion and fire was amazing; no one has done Malaguena justice since)
    3. Michelle Kwan: 2001 East of Eden (it's iconic; no one has owned this music like she did)
    4. Yu-Na Kim: 2009 Danse Macabre (it was untouchable and package-wise, it was perfection)
    5. Mao Asada: 2013 Nocturne (unbelievably beautiful; the maturity and emotion in her delivery is what puts it above the original for me)
