Michelle Kwan's "Day In the Life"
On Friday I attended a Beatles cover band concert in Bethesda, MD. Upon hearing the song "Day in the Life," I was reminded of Michelle Kwan's 1999-2000 short program to an instrumental version of the same song, by artist Jeff Beck. This short program was a different look for Michelle, who in the past few seasons had been very classical and dramatic. "Day in the Life" had a more contemporary, relaxed, jazzy feel. Some Kwan traditionalists were not used to the new look, and while it's not my favorite program of hers, either, I appreciate that she tried something new, and it's refreshing.
