Marlie Music News
This is a few days old, but Marlie announced their music for this season. It was updated on their Ice Network profile, but there hasn't been an article about their programs just yet.
SD: 'Batacudas' by Mitoka Samba, 'Life Is A Carnival' by Various Artists, and 'On The Floor' by Jennifer Lopez.
FD: 'La Strada' by Nino Rota
Like many of you, I am simultaneously excited and worried for Marlie's short dance. It is difficult to imagine Meryl Davis going J Lo on us. I can't even imagine Meryl Davis sipping wine and going J Lo, let alone defending her world title. Meryl probably doesn't even allow herself to consume those wasted calories. I felt similarly excited and nervous about Virtue and Moir's Samba, but that program wound up being a gem that just needed more competition time. If Marina Zueva isn't fucking with them, the program could take them to the next level. They need to work on chemistry and sex appeal. In my mind, Meryl will sport a high ponytail and shimmery dress that will have us all dying. She better give us some face. I imagine Charlie will exhibit better hips than the ultra-tight and toolish Scott Moir. Tessa's dress was necessary to block him from view. Marlie have been able to take risks in the past, but they weren't at the top yet. Last year's programs were complex, but lacked the magic of the previous year. This could be back what we need for Marlie Mania to continue. By continually pushing themselves out of their comfort zone, they may just become the legendary team many believe them capable of.
Meryl and Charlie's free dance should be classic Marlie. The music is grand and continues Meryl's love affair with all things Italian. It should be very grand and the music will help them to have a romantic feel. Perhaps they'll learn to act in love this season. Tanith should teach Meryl how to clutch a letter to her chest and bleed love.
