    Something very special: Torvill/Dean + YoYo Ma + a Sarabande from one of the Bach Cello Suites (not sure which )
    As far as I know it was suite no. 6.

    Has anyone done a skate to Cloud Atlas's soundtrack yet? I just love the end title music, but it might be too slow (even near the end?)? Or not enough places to throw in the punctuating jumps?

    I'll love anyone forever who does it. It's so buoyant and affirming and loud.

    Oh goodness! I forgot about the Cloud Atlas soundtrack! I would love for someone to skate to it as well or they can skate to this song instead: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vi35XQjFV_A Although the beginning is slow, the ending is perfect for a powerful step sequence and a final pose.

    ps. The song is Outro by M83. It was used in the Cloud Atlas trailer!

    I agree. That was a surprising triple toe. I think it's my favorite performance of the 8 Fantasie Impromptus. Anyone know if Kristi would get bonus points for the interesting entrance? It's at 3:10 in this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYGC...E2wcpjPOqmAMR6 Or is that considered a triple toe with just an interesting entrance? Blah. If that was a Sandra Bezic job, I'll have to temper my criticism of her.

    I'm barely more than a novice on scoring these days. :P

    It's really interesting seeing Irina and Sarah as such young skaters too. Irinia especially doesn't even look like herself. I had no idea she did the double Biellman so early in her career. 1994! (I'm definitely not the biggest fan out there so I give myself a pass. I also don't remember Mao being so fabulous back then but I didn't pay that much attention in 2007-8.

    I was watching "On the Waterfront" for the umpteenth time last weekend and found myself wondering whether a skater had ever used that music (see recent thread: Signs You're Obsessed with Figure Skating"). The film has an incredible Leonard Bernstein score with wonderfully dramatic, angular rhythms. Not even sure it would work but would love to know if anyone has ever tried it.

    Yes to Cloud Atlas! I thought it would actually have been perfect for Aljona and Robin but she wanted The Nutcracker ...

    From Cloud Atlas I think the sextet is the best one: http://youtu.be/rdiLxyGH8Lg (this can be cut down to 4 minutes, it's just a loop of the same piece)

    If someone's going to use the Rach 2 again, let's refrain from the first movement since Mao and Mishkutenok / Dmitriev have already done them to perfection.
    The second movement is lovely, but on one could top Lu Chen's from 96 worlds.
    The third movement is ripe for picking though, especially the triumphant closing moments. Has anyone done this section yet?

    Paul Wylie skated it the whole 95-96 tour of Stars on Ice! One of my fave programs!
