    Jason might pull this off.

    He just might! Unfortunately, the music isn't much to work with -- it would take a genius choreographer to make something of it. Maybe Rohene?

    Back on topic: below is a link to Debi Thomas' SP from the 1988 Olys (I seem to be stuck in the '80s today). Mae Berenice's athleticism reminds me a lot of Debi and I think she could do a great job with this music.

    I would love to see someone skate Paul Wylie's 92 Olympic routine. Heck any of his routines when he turned pro.

    Yes!!! The "Henry V" program from Albertville still gives me chills -- those gorgeous Russian split jumps! Actually, that LP could be wonderful for Jason.

    Henry V is an amazing program even to this day. Jason Brown or Patrick Chan.

    I need Ashley Wagner to revive Jill Trenary's Miami Sound Machine program. Immediately.

    I agree with Jason doing Henry V. Still one of my favorite men's programs ever.

    I know most people don't like the thought of lyrics but what if some one did Hallelujah for a SP. Jeff Buckley version of course!

    Ashley?? Marai??

    I LOVE Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah but I wonder if it would be too slow for a singles skater. Could maybe see a pairs team skate to it. I'm guessing Jason's LP next year will be something dramatic. Didn't Rohene say he originally was planning on him skating to Pearl Harbor? But Henry V or even JFK would be something to see. I know I'm an uber Jason fan but I really think he could interpret just about any kind of music.

    Anita Hartshorn and Frank Sweiding used to do some amazing programs to music by Enigma. I would love see a competitive pairs do one of their programs.

    I will only accept Habanera in Muppet form from now on, as a very short exhibition:

    "Hallelujah" is one of my all-time favorites, too! Sasha Cohen used it, I think as an exhibition, but IMO the program lacked something. Can't explain why, though -- it just didn't work for me.

    S-S, not sure whether Ashley could do "Hallelujah" but it could have possibilities for Mirai. And fasten your seat belt: in some ways I can see Yulia doing it. Yes, Yulia. There's something about that tune and those ironic lyrics that could fit with her "old soul" personality. Just a thought.

    Whatever Jason uses for his LP this year, I can't wait to see it!

    To me doing this song would take guts. It would require someone with an over abundance of power skating skills and an incredible strength of character that can match and even surpass the power of the lyrics. IMO Ashley could really probably sell it better than anyone with exception to Mao who I'm not willing to get my hopes up for returning yet. TBH I think Ashley could really use a program that is less confrontational in presentation and maybe one that sells her sweet side while showing her charisma in a new light. It would be out of left field for an aging veteran to use lyrics which most probably expect to be a youngster first. Pearl Harbor attack? Maybe a risk worth taking. Maybe not.

    This song resonates with me in a similar way to Marai's "On Golden Pond"a Little. A lot of people went ga ga over her exhibition at US Nationals and why not capitalize on it. That's what brought her to mind. Similar to Ashley and even more so in most ways, she could use a radical program that's a bit of a gamble to draw attention to her last attempt to stay relevant. Not to mention my personal desire to see her connect to such a beuautiful piece of music the way she did with OGP.

    That brings me to the music. While yes, it has lyrics. The way they are presented in this piece seems much more like a musical instrument than say A Madonna song where the lyrics are presented so that the music is often secondary. "Take a Bow" for example(This should be someone's gala IMO). The lyrics to Hallelujha are woven in like a subtle piano theme that plays to the soul of the music(oh dear) instead of over shadowing it, This is the biggest fear for me if skaters start using lyrics. Most songs don't present the lyrics this well as a compliment to the theme. I fear cheesiness is in our future not so much with this song.

    I can't see Yulia doing it because of her inability to connect to the music for every single note of a song. Plus she couldn't even sing her national anthem at Euros I suspect similar themes at least this year for her to many people's dismay. Oh well.

    I also agree with the previous poster that said maybe it would be safer for a pairs team to skate to. I just like taking risks. Especially late in a career.
