Why Is Figure Skating Music So Bad?

johnny_weir-713477I’ve long watched Olympic figure skating not for the music but for the tacky costumes (which, this month, of course means Johnny Weir, pictured). In fact, I usually watch the skating with the audio off, because I can’t stand to hear one more excruciating arrangement of “Swan Lake” or “Scheherazade.” Anne Midgette of the Washington Post shares my pain.
