I knew I was obsessed when I watched the movie Out of Africa after seeing Savchenko/Szolkowy skate to the soundtrack and liking really liking the music. Also, I have heard the East of Eden music so often that I feel like actually watching the movie -- that's on my to do list.
2/13, I don't even think I like this sport now, just find here is so fun
You buy CDs of movie soundtracks that you've enjoyed in figure skating even if you haven't seen or had no intention of seeing.
You play games in the car when a song comes on the radio, and your passenger (if he/she is a fs fan) jokingly asks, "Who skates to this?"
When you hear the name "Elvis," your first thought is the skater, not the singer.
When you hear the name "Honda," you think "Takeshi Honda," not the car company.
Your friends call you up on the phone to remind you when fs in on.
Your friends ask you about Olympic contenders every four years.
East of Eden is about a good guy who marries a not-good girl. She cheats with his bad-boy brother on their honeymoon and eventually deserts him.
Wasn't East of Eden from the 1955 movie soundtrack or the TV soundtrack? Either Rosenman or Holdridge?
I think it was Holdridge??

You see a thread like this on Golden Skate and you immediately copy the URL and send it to your friends.
And oh yes I bought that theme and put in on my iPod. I play it to relax during work. But I think of S/S and not of Robert and Meryl when I hear it.
