i don't think this would work for an LP/FD (not enough variety) but would love it if someone skated to Natacha Atlas' version of Mon Amie La Rose for an exhibition/gala: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeP-bJFg1bQ
Sometimes when I watch skating videos on youtube I also turn on one of my favorite songs, just to seem like that is the program's actual music
-I always wanted to watch V/M dancing on Take that-Rule the world https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KII1ruAfvsg
-Within Temptation - The swan song (or something else from WT, maybe Ice queen or Angels) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQF-XtANvcU -for Mao
-anything from Nightwish (I would like to see V/T skating on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1NIbHsXCws )
-almost anything from Sonata arctica (for Yuzuru or Patrick -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfI8o_hzaDk )
-Apocalyptica (again, this one for V/M or V/T https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBH8361-Jnw )
-Led zeppelin -Good times bad times (for Javi SP..or even Denis https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auYKJTv94Tg )
-something romantic from Whitesnake
-Scorpions (something well-known, Wind of change or Still loving you)
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9tKwSboJeg (for Gracie )
-something from James Blunt, but not You're beautiful (because I'll remember of Lambiel's gala program)
Half joking and half serious, but I always wondered if anyone could pull off 'Circle of life' from the Lion King.
If anyone skates to that, he/she has my vote for any title!
Size 7 Knifeboots
You read my mind exactly. That is the movie and selections that came to my head.

edit - you can say about more contemporary pieces from asian countries. i guess what i'm getting at is i'd love to see skates taking on *contemporary* pieces rather than the usual traditional - dare i say 'stereotypical' - typical pieces from, say, brazil, argentina, china, etc.
In other similar threads people mention Game of Thrones and I am soooo behind that
I know someone has skated a program to Doctor Who but it'd be nice to use other pieces of music from the show that are not the opening/action theme/Doctor's theme. This one in particular would make a lovely exhibition:
And it'd be fantastic to see someone pull of the music in this video:
Yuki Kajiura is a wonderful composer I love basically of her music/songs. So exhibition, competitive piece, whatever, I'll take it!
I know Kevin Reynolds skated to Chrono Trigger but there's more wonderful music in the game. Look into Chrono Cross and there's some lovely stuff in there too.
And because I recently watched all of Attack on Titan on Netflix I love the music in there, it ranges from fierce and powerful to pretty and emotional.
Actually Lang/Tchernyshev used Scorpions "Still Loving You" as their FD in 2003.

Handel and Mozart! especially for The Magic Flute!
A junior level US skater, Chase Belmontes skated to Princess Mononoke @ Nationals and medalled - great program!
Thanks, I knew some pair or dance team had used it!

Someone mentioned the Harry Potter music - didn't Bebe Liang skate an sp to it a few seasons back? IIRC, it was a very memorable, magical program.
+1 All of the above.

long live the...kid
I am wondering if any of the choreographers or coaches are reading this topic...they would surly have some great ideas for the music they could use in the programs
I skated to " Remember the Titans" Soundtrack and it was my favorite piece of music I ever skated to. I've always wondered why some of the elite skaters haven't used it. It's so powerful and perfect for skating. I really hope somebody picks it up because I would love to see a different interpretation.
One piece of classical music that no one ever seems to skate to is Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries.
Tough to get a rhythm going since it's such sweeping music, but I imagine it being performed with Viking helmets.
If anyone can interpret it with the proper grand drama it deserves, it's Plushenko!
You're right! What's especially exciting is that posters here have suggested music from a huge range of styles and traditions, not just the latest movie sound track or pop hit. An impressive and knowledgeable group of fans we have here on GS.
