Howzabout "I Fought The Law, and The Law Won" for Tonya Harding (or maybe
Gary Beacom)?

Nah, Gary should skate to "Taxman", by the Beatles

"Lucky Luke" for Phillipe Candeloro (Oops, forgot. He already did that one...)

Here's a good one Nancy Kerrigan could have done at last year's Halloween
on Ice: "You're Having My Baby."

Now THAT's scary.

I like, perhaps for Tonya Harding, "Hard-hearted Hannah the Vamp of
Savannah."

OK...how 'bout Paul skating to "If You Could See Her Through My Eyes (She
 Wouldn't Look Jewish At All)" from Cabaret?

I always wondered about this...this song always seems so grossly inappropriate
 for the young girls that portray it...and they _always_ use it!  It must be
 some sort of a regulation that every Broadway-oriented number must use the
 Chorus Line score (which I hate) and must use "T & A" particularly.  What are
 they thinking?  "What shall we do for the next program...say, I bet no one's
 done 'Chorus Line' before!"

Anyway...

Gordeeva doing "Always True to You, Darling (In My Fashion)" or "I'm a Maid Who
 Would Marry" from "Kiss Me Kate"

Bauil doing "One for my Baby (and One More for the Road)"

Kerrigan doing "Lovely" from "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum"

Ina and Dungen doing "People Will Say We're in Love" from "Oklahoma"

etc.

I've got the perfect song--but I don't know for who...

That oldie about "if you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make
 a pretty woman your wife"  about getting an ugly girl to marry you...

Actually the title of the song is "Dance, Ten, Looks Three."  But nevertheless
 I would hate to see Tara doing a number to that.  One point is that pretty
 much the whole second half of Irina's 1996 long is to that song.  It was
 definitely surreal to be thinking aobut the lyrics as this perky little girl
 is skating.  

Other ideas I have are:

Usova and Zhulin - Stand By Your Man.

"Pasha" and Oksana Bauil - "Sisters" from the movie White Christmas (you know
 the one that goes "sisters, sisters, don't mess with my sister.."

Cool thread, Trudi!  

Okay, I'm gonna get killed for this one, but I know one sure-fire career killer
 for Oksana Baiul:  "Red Red Wine" by UB40!

 Sorry, Oksana.

Or  "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" by George Thorogood (and many

Yeah, Kristi Yamaguchi used it for her short program at one time too. Talk
about a girl who had NOTHING of what the song was about...

Or "Chug-a-Lug" by Roger Miller....

I'd also like to see "Pasha" team up with Alexander Zhulin and skate to
Jimmy Buffett's "Why Don't We Get Drunk and Screw"!

It's not a career killer, it is appropos: Should Tonya ever return, the
natural choice is Elton John's The *** is Back.

Then she can follow up with Elton John's I've Seen the Saucers, in honor
of all her many *** escapades - phantom men, phantom aliens, lots o'
press...

I still kinda liked "One For My Baby (And One More For the Road)"...

I have a good one. Susan Humphreys defends her Canadian title...and her
exhibition number is "Loser" by Beck. Dedicated to David Dore. ("I'm a
loser, baby, so why don't you kill me?")
