Something new, please... or at least something that hasn't been seen in a while.
Bond girl, Ave Maria, Firebird, Rach II, Swan Lake, Gershwin's "American Airlines Suite"... please, please, NO.
And I'd take Guns 'n Roses before I'd watch another Carmen program.
Has anyone of note skated to Bach since K/P? Or to Mendelssohn since Lu Chin? I can't recall.
I like the soundtrack from Chicago for the SD. The overture has a great Charleston (thinking Davis/White as they do a great Charleston), Razzle/Dzzle for the Foxtrot and All that Jazz for the Quickstep.
Liza should skate to Czardas, it's Russian folk music but peppy and fast-paced, it would be a nice change of pace for her! Some happy skating!
I want Jason Brown to skate to Riverdance, THAT would be interesting I think.
Pogorilaya should have a tango program, loved her EX at JW and the costume, she is so expressive and fiery!
Adelina...I don't know, just not Burlesque or Aguilara, please.
Julia I am expecting her to skate a Tchaikovsky or Khachaturian musics
also Malanguena I think would do well for her
Gracie needs an modern/upbeat SP and classical LP
Liza will probably keep in Tango musics she looks bored and lobed when skating to classical musics
I like Yuna's current LP
I would like Hanyu to skate to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nr8jrP8VoD4
I think Les Supremes did it in '11 for their SP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEUh3knkAM4
I would also love if someone had to do a Romeo & Juliet theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HC6utNzmvqA
The German or French pairs to use this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnwxXNfdsxU
One of the ladies or US pair to use this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgaTQ5-XfMM
Katelyn to use this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLpmaWEUobI
I half expect Mao to choose Rach music, most likely Piano Concerto No. 2.
I never expected myself to ever say this, but I would love to see Mao skate to Madame Butterfly. I don't like the story at all, but the music is undeniably glorious and I think Mao now would be able to rise above the potential triteness of the selection and make it memorable.
So, this is gonna come out of left field... but after watching Javier, am I crazy to think that he could pull off "One Jump" from Aladdin as a Short Program? I mean I swear its right up his alley. (I suppose he could do an Exhibition to it, since it may not be well recieved by the judges as a Short, but I think it's totally suitable as a stand alone Short: fast-paced, tells a little vignette.... and its called One Jump, for crying out loud!
Aladdin worked fairly well for Ilia Kulik (second place to Todd Eldredge and ahead of Rudy Galindo in third at the 1996 Worlds). Or you could say that it worked poorly, since he didn't beat Todd.
If you have IN, it is probably there. However, none of these sound like Riverdance. Perhaps it was a gala program?
