Figure Skating Music to Love & Play

Ah, the Olympics! I follow figure skating because I love the beauty of the skaters’ physical and psychological journey.

Skaters are learning even as they step on the Olympic ice; we never know if they’ll nail the jumps, but we’re coming along for the journey. Plus, who doesn’t like a mash of music, passion, and risk of death-slash-broken-bones?

Here’s some of the best ice skating music from the Olympics. I won’t lie, some of these music titles are delightful.
