Skating rink songs!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Come on, y'all. I know I wasn't the only one who used to hang out at the skating rink. So name me some good skating rink songs! I'm a child of the 80s, but any decade will do—a good skating rink song is timeless. Or not ...

Some I could think of are:

Kool and the Gang - Celebration
Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart
Michael Jackson - PYT
Anything by The Jets

Help me out! I need retro tunes.

I lived in the sticks so I didn't get to go to skating rinks, but my friend said a couple good ones were "Journey into Bass" by DJ Laz and "Dream Team is in the House" By LA Dream Team....I never heard of them!

Late 60s to mid-70s, I skated to:

Herman's Hermits
Bobby Goldsboro
The Beatles
The Beach Boys
The Supremes
Frankie Vallee and the Four Seasons
Johnny Cash
Buck Owens
Tom Jones

The "Hokey-Pokey" was a standard feature of every skate session.

I used to do pairs dancing on roller skates- the song I most remember was Fascination. Played by an organist who was fascinating by himself. THAT's how long ago that was!

Oh, thank you for reminding me! There was a huge old Quonset hut on the Army base where we were stationed in the early '70s that had been turned into a roller rink... oh, it was great fun.

And the song I loved to skate to most of all was good ol' Smokey Robinson, "Tears Of A Clown!"

Ahhh, Motown...
