COOL SONGS TO ROLLER-SKATE TO AT THE SKATIN' RINK

Hey guys.

I really miss the old roller-skating days; flying around on the floor while some great tunes would blast from the speakers.  I felt some just really got your blood pumping (not to mention the actual skating giving you a decent workout).  What were some favorites that you would cut up the floor to?

COOL SONGS TO ROLLER-SKATE TO AT THE SKATIN' RINK

I am not as old as some, but I think an oft overlooked skating song is Connected by the Stereo MC's.

Great song to skate to.

Also I can't help but enjoy the Jungle Boogie and anything by Parliament.

Detroit city skate boards and products

Yes, old skating rinks were really a WOW factor, but we must accept the change with time, Recently I came across the products that are being offered by Detroitcityskateboards.com and I must say its worth buying. The boards, shoes, tapes, wheels  rather i must say each and every product related to skating is of quality that one can get at

Good choices, kmgonz.  But Rubberband Man is by The Spinners.  The Ohio Players did "Fire" and "Love Rollercoaster".

Thanks for the input folks.  Duh.. one I forgot big-time was The Hustle by Van McCoy.  Also heard at high school and junior high school assemblies.  Boogie Oogie Oogie was another good skatin' tune.

Man roller skating takes me back to some great times. More Bounce to the once-Zapp, Atomic Dog-George Clinton(Parlament-Funkadelic) Planet Rock-Afrika Bambatta, Mony Mony-Billy Idol. Just couple that I remember. I see alot of tunes listed that were also played alot during those days. Thanks for the flashback.

Great topic...brings me back to the old, long-gone skating place in my home town of Madison, WI called The Wheel Thing. There had to be dozens from my middle school era that I knew by heart there, but the only one that comes to mind is I'm a California Man by Cheap Trick.
