39/365: Songs That should not be Olympic figure skating songs

I love the Olympics. I don’t know why. My mom and I always watched the ice skating programs and those were my favorite (mostly to laugh when they fell) of all. I loved the musical aspect. I still do. Tonight, the male technical program was on and a skater skated to “Dust in the Wind.” Good Lawd no. I’d already started this post, but that sealed it.

And now, the Kerry Blog list of songs no Olympic skater should use to perform.
