As for me, I begin to miss Requiem for a Dream and Totentanz... These melodies used to be quite popular some time ago, but I can't remember anybody skating to them lately.
And I always like people skating to NotreDame de Paris (I'm a big fan of this musical) and to Pirates of the Carribean.
Yeah, I would like more Pirates of the Carribean. The last time I saw it was at Leonova in 2012 and that was a great short program.

Alena Leonova and Anita Madsen are happy to oblige!

Now, can someone please skate to the Princess Mononoke symphonic suite? Anyone?
May I suggest Joe Hisaishi's score for the film Departures (Okuribito)? For those of you who remember it won the Best Foreign Film Oscar in 2008. The entire score:
The best piece, which runs 4:11, the perfect length for a FS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiyFe...E6A64D&index=1
For this I see ... Akiko, in an exhibition number. It's the sort of open, emotional but not too light or sentimental piece that suits her well.
I've always wanted someone to skate an SP to this: Warm Air by Vanessa Mae http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhmVZvocTp0
When I listen to it, I can hear good places to put a spin, lol.
If someone did an American Hustle program (since lyrics are allowed next season), I would literally be a fan for life.

Very beautiful!!! I also imagine the sound of a spin when I hear music like this. I've gone so far as to record spins and put them into music I've written. Thanks for the link!

Cheering Wildly from the stands
River flows in you a piano solo by Yiruma.
If someone really graceful could skate to this one I'd be soooo happy. It would probably need to be with another song though. Dunno.

The "Lord of the Rings" soundtrack
The Mission - Ennio Morricone
and maybe Indiana Jones soundtrack))
and surely, I'll never tired of The Phantom of the Opera

I've kinda answered this question in the music section of my reply to the “if you're a figure skater, what would you be?” thread.
So, visit that message to see a long list of music I would like to see skated to.
But, just to wind you all up, how about Douglas Wood’s “Drag Racer” (I admit – you probably won’t recognise the name. But as soon as British members hear the tune, it’ll conjure up thoughts of the bane of the figure skating TV viewer!)

Anyone has skated to this?
Batman begins soundtrack (Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard)
Good by Lenin soundtrack (Yann Tiersen)
Master & Commander soundtrack (Iva Davies, Christopher Gordon Richard Tognetti with themes from Mozart, Bach & Boccherini)
For the next season, with lyrics allowed, these will be great:
Gradus vita, Hellsing sountrack
Mi confesión, electrotango (Gotan Project)
