I really like Kevin Reynold's music choices for this season! Hope he brings both programs onto the next season
In search of a summer sport to love <3
Nicole Bobek's exhibition from World's in 1995. It was nicely done, and I loved the costume!

"Avril 14th" - by Aphex Twin (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-KLlE4kKHA)
"Concerto in G" - by Vivaldi (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzmU_9U-3Go)
"Opus 36" - by Dustin O'Halloran (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yzxo0YCxAA0)
"Ceremony" - by New Order (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pjz_S_d2lk)
For Radionova, or maybe Gracie (lots of good ones by this artist, too):
"Dream Fortress" - by Grimes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQUGsrPli1U)
I'd give either of these to Jeremy Abbot. I think his choreography, energy, and expressiveness are a perfect fit.
"Crooked Legs" - by The Acorn (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQj3l_GLN90) *eta - fixed link
"The Flood: Part One" - by The Acorn (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9U5qutkUIw)
Other good songs, for anyone:
"Acid, Bitter, and Sad" - by This Mortal Coil (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSorZSnd3iE)
"Oh Love" - by Ane Brun (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xiVhJu6Z1g)
"You Are the Blood" - by Sufjan Stevens (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ma-l-2izB_s)
"Ocean" - by Dream Koala [feat. Soko] (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XDpD1KYUW0)
"A Walk" - by Tycho (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mehLx_Fjv_c)
"Crystallize" - by Lindsay Stirling (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHjpOzsQ9YI)

"Organ Donor" - DJ Shadow (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4E60Ffa9yQ)
"Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt" - DJ Shadow (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ld_tF1AXqs)
@I♥Yuna: Péchalat/Bourzat skated to Organ Donor for their wonderful Madness FD in 2007/08.
What about The Pillow Book soundtrack? It contains songs by Guesch Patti: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRvLUoaJ0hQ
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJmAr8YHSvg - haunting
and a Valse by Belgian composer Walter Hus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHaXDQI4Deo
as well as the 1940 Chinese pop song Méigui méigui wǒ ài nǐ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PrvRhaoNN8
Antother suitable movie soundtrack is Rob Roy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pb_9s...id=P3ybEIqmewA – I like the movie better than Braveheart.
Yeah I liked that one It was blended with some other music, tho, and the tempo was slower. I like the original version best (maybe for a singles short program instead).

I know I remember seeing someone skate to Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, but I don't remember who it was. I've always been surprised more skaters don't skate to Mozart though.
Ryan Bradley skated to it, IIRC.

It's so pretty.

I posted this a few days ago but I really think this would be a great SP or Gala. Especially around the 1:55 mark. Kind of modern but very classical.

I really like it. Thanks for showing us.

I would like it if, for one of her programs she skated to something softer, more lyrical, because she shows quite a bit of gracefulness, and it would be wonderful if a choreographer really showed that side of her.
I want a short dance in leg warmers set to this immortal piece: http://youtu.be/9EcjWd-O4jI
In all seriousness, amongst contemporary film composers I think Patrick Doyle has two great pieces that are a bit underused, but Lipinski used both to great effect: "Much Ado About Nothing" and "Sense and Sensibility". It's rousing and romantic and the cut Tara used in the 1997 worlds was perfect. Having seen her do it at 14, I'd like to see how someone older could interpret the same piece.
Among films of the last few years that aren't Les Miserables, how about Life of Pi, for an Indian-themed piece? It also won an Oscar for its great score. If done right, could be a great companion piece with D/W's wonderful Bollywood number.

^Go ahead Ashley Wagner .. Make my day. I've heard that song before but didnt realize the video was so amazing! Thx!
It was the height of chic when I was young...er. Although I can't imagine Ashley trying a triple-triple combo with boots, a catsuit (borrowed from Aljona or Tania V) and a FANNY PACK. :P
