How do you make a skating rin

How do you make a skating rink mix without Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust" and Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall"? I mean, come on!

"Magic" is such a great song.



If you don't have the songs, you don't include them. :D On the ideal skating rink playlist, I would also have included "Centerfold" by the J. Geils Band, Van Halen's "Jump," and "Billie Jean." Oh, and "Wipeout," since at our skating rink they had this weird falling-down game to that song; apparently whoever could fall down the best and the most times (on purpose) during the song won a Super Rope or some similar prize.

You know, I don't remember hearing Queen or Pink Floyd at the skating rink, now that you mention it. I guess that was a little before my time. Sorry if I'm making you feel old, Darren.

Ah, I'm so there. *This* is

Ah, I'm so there. *This* is a great list.

Don't forget...

Beastie Boys' "Fight for Your Right" partaaaaaaaay! That was a big one at the rink when I was in 6th grade. Also "Push It" by Salt n Pepa. Maybe I'm a few years younger than you? Guessing ages by roller rink hits!

thank you for this list

I've been trying to put together a roller rink mix and your list has been a great help. My major roller rink days were in the mid-late 80s, so I have a lot of memories of madonna, michael jackson, and DEBBIE GIBSON!!! "Out of the Blue", "Staying Together", "Shake Your Love", and "Electric Youth" defined my roller days, and Debbie's "Lost in Your Eyes" was a power love ballad that only a seven year-old could fully understand. Also "Wipeout" was big at my skating rink as a game song, "Wully Bully", "Push It", Taylor Dayne's "Let the Music Play", and Shannon's "Let the Music Play". All great roller rink music.


taylor dayne's song is "Tell it to my Heart".

If you don't have Freestyle "

If you don't have Freestyle "Don't Stop The Rock" on your roller rink playlist you may as well be making a water polo playlist. So weak.


I'm organizing a Throwbakc rollerskating party and i've been constructing a list and i have SO many songs, but i'm trying to narrow it down to the perfect list based on what i remember from my skating days back in the day. this site has bee a terrific help

How could you guys forget

How could you guys forget Electric Kingdom, Jam on it, Spring Luv, Together Forever, Rock it don't stop it, Double Dutch Bus, I need Luv...
