    I meant the lyrical version of "Just for a moment" by David Foster. I've always referred to it as the love theme but it may also be called St. Elmo's Fire, I'm not sure. Below are links to the the St Elmo' Fire, Legends of the Fall and the Piano respectively.

    Really? I am being real. There are choreographers that can get it done without ripping off someone elses program from the past.
    With a particular skater if you are using some of the same movement, then fine because that is their personal style or perhaps a signature movement for them.

    The problem with much of this is the same 4 or 5 choreographers are working the chunk of the skaters.

    Check yourself.

    nooooo i was agreeing with you, 'let's be real' wasn't supposed to be snarky

    on topic - i always thought someone should skate to explosive by bond, it's practically tailor made for a program full of jumps with all the accents in the music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B42dozDeEfA

    Ahh ok. I apologize then. It is difficult to detect meaning sometimes in writing on a board.
    Oh and thanks.

    Legends of the Fall is right up there with East of Eden for "most beautiful soundtracks!" There was a brother sister pair team for the US that skated to Legends some years ago and didn't do it justice. Would like to see it used again.

    Thanks for the links. Lovely to revisit good music.

    And also, I think someone already posted it but I saw "The Grand Budapest Hotel" last night. That score was MADE for ice dancing.

    Re: Grand Budapest you beat me to it!! Desplat's scores are often very subtle (e.g. The Queen, Philomena), but TGBH was his first major showcase where the music wasn't made to just tinkle lightly in the background and really take centre stage along with the rest of the production details.

    St. Elmo's Fire! That takes me back. :D

    I think that from the same year, Quincy Jones's score from "The Color Purple" can be used effectively.

    "The Piano" would be great, but IMO Delobel & Schoenfelder (I miss them still) did that to perfection at 2008W. That's a high bar to climb. That being said, another Jane Campion film which has evocative music was her follow-up "The Portrait of a Lady". It's not the most memorable score, but cut in the right way, would work as a dramatic solo piece for a single lady.

    I'd like someone to skate to Quintessence of Dust by Govinda (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_VIQD_Z4FQ really cool Spanish & Indian fusion, some other good ones off this album, too, like Compassion, and In thru Time). Also love Makambo by Geoffrey Oryema (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWpERZAIy3E remember Pure Moods? )

    One of my favorite songs that is not quite long enough () is The Dance by Tangerine Dream, for the movie "Legend" (it might work if you added a few seconds of ambient windchime at the beginning and end, sort of like the movie scene http://youtu.be/bWuToQn9VH4?t=1m45s).

    Has anyone ever used La fille aux cheveux de lin by Debussy? One of my favourite classical pieces, so beautiful, I can imagine Yuna skating to something like this

    I hope one day a hot and sexy dance-team will skate to "Lily was here" by Candy Dulfer and Dave Stewart.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJbETMGDeDo

    And I hope it will be Weaver/Poje because I wanna see Andrew with this music. Yes I am shallow
