Just peeked in here and got totally lost in YouTube land. I think my favorite is Aranguez because I love the music and Patrick and his choreography interpreted it beautifully.'

Thank you for posting all these wonderful programs.

Well, I've watched these several times and it's hard to pick a favourite.

And, wow, WHAT a body of work - any one of these skates is astounding, but to produce so many....

Patrick's expressiveness and musicality really seems to build from 2013 onwards.

If I had to award medals for favourites, then Pewter: Buble 2016 - (Javier Fernandez levels of joy and fun), Bronze: Chopin 2016 (incredible matching of the skating to the music and I love the crowd's reaction), Silver: Journey LP (You are so lucky to have been there - I bet it will be a memory that will stay with you forever), Gold: Beatles (so beautiful, it moves me to tears every time)

Thank you @foreverchan for putting together such a great portfolio of Patrick's skating - it was such a joy to watch these.

(If only Patrick would return - maybe his pal Eric Radford could persuade him to take up Pairs.....)

I give the Beatles gold. It was the first time that I understood the hype about his skating. It made me a fan. :)

My pleasure !!!! I have to say that I also love the post Sochi programs... However, I find some of his previous work superb as well like Take Five and Elegy. The only sadness I have, after all this time, is that we never saw perfectly well skated DUst in the wind and Hallelujah.. I think those programs had the potential to be magic... at the same time, Patrick skated them with joy in the team event which resulted in him becoming an olympic champion and that makes things better... I agree.. SO MANY GREAT programs!!!
