I would love to see someone skating on Birdy-Wings
The ending sequence of the Alpine Symphony is just sublime.
The mid-section of Mukhortova / Trankov's 2009-10 FS was the love theme from "Cinema Paradiso". It was blended with "Love Story" but I think it's a great stand-alone piece all on its own. It runs just over 3 minutes but trim it by 30 seconds and I think it'd make a beautiful SP for Volotsozhar / Trankov. They're also in love in real life, which would just add to the presentation. Thoughts?
The way ice dance teams love to have a story or a theme, I'm surprised none of them have skated to "Fotheringay" by Fairport Convention (circa 1970). It's about Mary Queen of Scots' imprisonment, trial and execution at Fotheringay Castle. The melody is lovely, the lyrics draw you in, and it features the beautiful voice of Sandy Denny.
Just think of the possibilities for sumptuous historical costumes and dramatic presentation. The PCS meter would break. I only worry that one of the more OTT teams might insist on acting out the execution, complete with Mary's little dog cowering under her skirts. I can actually envision an ice dancer in an Elizabethan inspired dress with a little stuffed toy dog attached to it.
Seriously, why doesn't a British team jump on this. The music and the story are both part of their heritage.
