I've always wanted to see someone skate to the Faure Elegie (preferably in the cello and orchestra version rather than the cello and piano). It's a GORGEOUS piece of music.

IDK if anyone has mentioned this but I really like this piece from Game of Thrones. It's called "Rains of Castamere"
And there is a cover version with strings:

I would really like to see someone skating to Michael Nyman's The Heart Asks Pleasure First: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dPS-EHl-FE
And to certain songs by Brian Crain (I remember a Junior lady doing it recently, but all she did was put pieces of multiple songs together):

Oh! And could someone please skate to Downton Abbey's theme - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7ULKKJ5UpI

It's a really solemn piece. I first heard of it when I was looking up the latest YT videos from Jackie Evancho. What do you think?

not sure if anyone's already said this for Ashely, but she should be skating to malagueña. normally i'm against warhorses but Ashley could do this warhorse and i wouldn't mind one bit.

She already did. It was her long program in the 2010-2011 season.

I would absolutely die if a skater used music from Hayao Miyazaki films, composed by Joe Hisaishi. The score from the movie The Wind Rises is really hard to find on YouTube, but has three running themes along with other pieces of music ("Journey", "Caproni", and "Naoko") that are absolutely gorgeous. Here's one of the "Naoko" pieces:
Also, this song from Spirited Away could be a gorgeous program

I would love love love to see an ice dance couple skate to the theme from The Princess Bride. And I will continue to push for Hotel California and Jimi Hendrix until some poor skater feels sorry for me and uses either in a competitive program. We all have dreams.
