Music Clash a new regular post I'm going to be doing. The concept is simple; I'll post two (or more) very different programs but with the same music, and you leave a comment to which you prefer.

Today, I'm talking about the Amelie soundtrack; personally, I believe the music to be just gorgeous.Many skaters have performed to the music, but I've just chosen two. Who skated to it better; Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto or Sarah Meier?

My personal preference is for Meier; the delicate nature of the music perfectly suits her gentle and graceful style. I also felt the music reflected her personality somewhat better than it did for Belbin and Agosto; however, make up your own mind below.

I agree with you. I'd never seen either of those before, but Sarah Meier's was beautiful! I'm no skating expert, but I felt like her skating and choreography went really well with the music.

For me, easily Belbin and Agosto. But I thinks it's more on substance vs style. Belbin and Agosto's skating skills are heaps better than Sarah's and I think that helps the overall feel of the program.

That said, I am a big fan of Meier's and hope she skates well this season.

Thanks for your comments....Gillian, that'sexactly why I love Meier's as well - I saw her perform it at Art On Ice and was just blown away. And Aaron, that's an interesting perspective; undeniably Tanith and Ben are much better. And I hope she does as well, after the initial disappointment of last season. In the same way, I'm still a Belbin/Agosto fan and hope they'll have further success.
