Ghost: I agree brother. Although some of us really like that guitar solo in Make Somebody Happy.
I posted that particular Santana opus not only because it conveys my goal as instructor to "make somebody happy, make somebody strong," but because music itself represents instructing by transference. Not really a skill transference, but an emotional transference.
Music is just aural emotion. Nothing but emotion. Music serves no purpose or function other than to convey or to create emotion.
When we are emotionally "moved" by music, often we move our bodies physically. That is called dancing.
Guess what? There is no useful purpose or function for free skiing except for the emotion that moving our bodies free from friction makes us feel.
Skiing makes us feel joy.
That was the purpose of posting the music. To remind music and ski instructors not lose sight of the true purpose of both music and skiing - joy.
We all know it. But sometimes we don't show it.
* Racing of, course, is somewhat different than free skiing.
