    1. Chen Lu - 1996 Worlds "Rach" LP
    2. Michelle Kwan - 2001 Nationals "East of Eden" SP
    3. Shen & Zhou - 2003 Worlds "Turandot" LP
    4. Michelle Kwan - 2003 Worlds "Aranjuez" LP
    5. Michelle Kwan - 1998 Nationals "Lyra Angelica" LP
    6. Paul Wylie - 1992 Olympics "Henry V" LP

    And, personally, I would have chosen G&G in 1994. M&D were absolutely stunning, but G&G gave a performance packed with such honest emotion and exquisite skating. I'm a sucker for the classical pairs style!

    Alexei Yagudin - Revolution Etude (01 Worlds SP)

    Okay, Taan, I thought your Sasha gush post was just nuts, but I do agree with you about M&D in 94. Yes, I realize that makes me a skating heretic....

    Anyway, other programs that gave me chills...

    Evgeni's Adagio SP, Bofrost
    Brian Joubert's Time SP at Skate America
    Alexander Abt's Russian Sailor Dance (?) SP from Bofrost

    Hmmm, let me ponder some more. I do love the SP a great deal, so it would seem.

    Patchris--Hey, another fan of Vanessa Gusmeroli's "Legends of the Fall" program. I love the series of about six or seven different spins that make up the ending.
    --"Four Corners": A quartet choreographed by Sandra Bezic and skated by Elena Bechke, Denis Petrov, Ekaterina Gordeeva, and Ilia Kulik, SOI, live, '99.
    --"Casi Un Bolero": Duet for Katia and Ilia, SOI, 2000.
    --Oksana Baiul: "The Swan" COI, live, '94; "Meditation by Thais" COI, live, '95; "Arabian" COI, live, '96.
    --Mishketunok & Dmitriev: "Liebestraum" '92 Olympics, TV; "Rachmaninoff" '94 Olympics, TV.
    --Gordeeva & Grinkov: "The Man I Love" SOI, live, '95; "Humoresque" World Pros, '94 or '95 (not sure), TV; "Moonlight Sonata" '94 Olympics, TV.
    --Anissina&Peizerat: "Romeo and Juliet" '98 Olympics, TV; "Time to Say Goodbye" '98 Olympic exhib, TV; "Carmina Burana" '00(?) Worlds, TV.
    --Kurt Browning: "Love Medley to Sonja" SOI, live, '97 I think, and many others.
    --Ilia Kulik: "Aladdin" '96 Worlds, TV; "Caught" Olympic SP '98 TV; "Rhaphsody in Blue" Oly LP '98; "Liebestraum" '97 Exhib; "Baseball Cap" (Mathman barfs) SOI '00; "Rhaphsody in Blue" Hallmark pro/am '02; "Waltz of the Flowers" exhib, '03, TV.
    --Irina Slutskaya: "Schindler's List" pro/am competition, '00 I think.
    --Michelle Kwan: "Rush" SP fall '99(?); "The Feeling Begins" SP '03 Nats/Worlds; "Aranjuez" LP '03 Nats/Worlds.
    --Chen Lu: "Rachmaninoff" '96 Worlds.
    --Sarah Hughes: "Daphne et Chloe" Olympic LP, '02.
    --Sasha Cohen: "Sentimental Waltz" Olympic SP, '02; "Malaguena" SP Skate Canada '02; "Swan Lake" Campbell's '03, live.
    --Dorothy Hamill: "Andrew Lloyd Weber's Requiem" '99/00 exhib.
    --Paul Wylie: "Bach" SOI, '97, many others.
    --Brian Boitano: Don't have a stand-out program for Brian, but the quality of his skating in general gives me chills when I see him live. Not the same on TV.
    --Kristi Yamaguchi: "Bridge Over Troubled Water."
    --Excusé moi! Almost forgot Philippe Candeloro's '98 SP and LP. He earned that bronze when nobody thought he would show up as anything but naked. So refreshing to see someone really perform for the audience at the Olympics.
    --EDITED TO ADD: I forgot YAGS! "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Winter."
    --And flog me with Tonya Harding's boot laces, how could I forget Torvill & Dean "Bolero" and their "Paso Doblé" original dance at '84 Worlds and Olympics. Plus their Rhumba OD at '94 Olympics and many of their other dances.
    --Which reminds of two other great "Paso Doblé" original dances: One by Grishuk & Platov, the other by Krylova & Ovsiannikov in '96 or '97 (can't recall). They both blew me away. But T&D's set an amazing standard for the true heart of the paso doblé, IMO.

    There are others, but those are main ones that come to mind.

    I forgot a few

    1. Tonia Kwiatkowski - 1996 Nationals "Blade Runner" LP, I really became a major Tonia fan after this performance. She was rock solid technically and really gave it her all.
    2. Tonia Kwiatkowski - 1998 Worlds LP, WOW! After the 97 and 98 Nationals, I felt so terrible for Tonia. She had worked so hard and never received the international respect she deserved. This performance was brilliant for her and severely undermarked (surprise!). I got chills when she hit the ending pose and couldn't contain her emotions...and then her Dad crying in the skybox...AAHHH!
    3. Chen Lu - 1994 Olympics "Claire de Lune" SP, wasn't clean. But this was one of my favorite programs of Lulu's up to this point. It was a huge step above what she had done before and fit her perfectly. It was light and beautiful...wispy in a way. Exceptional skating.

    Kurt Browning - Casablanca and also his program when he landed the first quad. Pretty much everything he has done!

    Martini and Underhill

    Toller Cranston

    Brian Orser - his 88 Olympic Skate
    and his program The Story of My Life
    also his program done to Somewhere in Time.

    Torvill and Dean - Bollero

    There are many more, but I am too tired to think right now!

    Almost every time I read somebody else's list I think, "Oh, yeah! How could I have forgotten that one!?" and add it to mine. But my list has gotten so long I'll just acknowledge yours. Yes, what I call Katia's "Requiem" program for Sergei was in a class by itself, IMO. Emotional yet restrained. Chills and tears.

    And Shen & Zhao at '03 Worlds. The whole program kept building and building, then after she landed that last throw jump, the rest of the program just seemed to explode with everything that's great about skating. Thanks for the reminder.
