Pas De Deux Music?

I am putting together a CD of music ideas for my pas de deux in two months. I can't really seem to find music that flows well. We are thinking something kind of new and fun; not so much classical. My trainer wants it to be based off of Katy Perry's Firework. Any suggestions?

I really like Viva La Vida by Coldpay...way different sound that Katy Perry but I would love to see a freestyle or pas deux to it!

I don't ride dressage but I always though some country songs would work well for a freestyle!

Very different again, but I've used loads of Eminem songs for freestyle (karaoke versions minus the words!). There's nothing like a rap beat to show off your paces, and I mixed several to match the different paces... and it's a bit different so gets you noticed!

Definitely something with a good, solid beat. I would also do a karaoke/instrumental version of whatever you choose. Lyrics would really do nothing but mask the tempo/beat in the music, and you really want to show that off. Especially if you can really nail those movements.

Eminem is a really good suggestion. Coldplay is great too, I would use Clocks if I were doing a freestyle, actually. I actually wouldn't use Country music - but I LOVE country, don't get me wrong!! But something about most Country songs is just ... not really right for Dressage. For Reining? PERFECT. The movements are just very different, therefore require different types of music. Come to think of it, a dubstep remix of some sort of song would be PERFECT for Dressage. Simply because the beat makes up the entire song. It would be really easy to make something up to, and would look really breathtaking if you can execute it well. Even though I hate dubstep, I must say, it's good for this...

Well theres my opinion :p LOL. The general idea, I would do something with a good, clean beat. Something either pop, rock, rap, or dubstep. I actually despise everything there but some rock and pop, but ... it's the beat that matters

Look up The Piano Guys on YouTube. Pianist Jon Schmidt and cellist Steven Sharp Nelson are AMAZING. They take modern hits and arrange them for piano and cello. One of my favorites is their (unofficial) arrangement of "Love Story meets Viva La Vida."

I think I'm going to be using plain white t's music for mine. My trainer has the music that she has used from before, her daughter does all the editing for it. I haven't heard it yet tho.we wont be starting practice for another week, maybe 2. I'm really looking forward to it, this is my first year doing dressage and competing :)

Eta: actually, maybe it was the white stripes lol....

Such a good summary (: My last freestyle where I mixed Eminem songs, I used Lose Yourself for my trot movements, Shake That for canter and Love The Way You Lie for walk. Worked really well (: I just LOVE dressage to music, and I actually love to school with my iPod on too in one ear, as I think the rhythm really helps you focus on correct paces (:
