Let the Music Play and Careless Whispers were the best songs!! me and my marlboro lights, sprayed up hair, tight jeans, blue eyeshadow...wooo hooo

THRILLER video, the loong version. Had to talk my dad into picking me up past midnight for that one, or maybe it was my friends dad.
I used to think the Thriller video was really scary until I saw the making of Thriller on MTV.

Yeah I thought someone would have a CD titled Skating Rink Songs from the 80's but I couldn't find any...maybe I should contact one of those Monster 80's producing companies and tell them

When I Hear Music...that was one of the coolest skating song! Oh and how could I forget Push It.

Thanks for all the great suggestions! Yes, great memories. I knew I could depend on you mamas to help me out

H#ll yeah! I kept reading down and down this thread, thinking "how has no one else posted Push It?!?!" That's the first song that immediately comes to mind the second I hear the words "skating rink".

That's right! They played music videos at my local rink too! I remember seeing Thriller, Billy Jean & Land of Confusion.

Does anyone know the title and artist to "Freak-a-thon"? I thought that was the title but I can't find it. I can't remember all the words but I know "people in the house tonight move your body from left to right....it's a freak-a-thon".

I spent so much time at roller rinks from 1980-1984. The first song that popped into my head when i saw the topic was "Tainted Love" I vividly remember the first time I heard it--skating with my first "serious" boyfriend--we dated all of three months!! We broke a few days later.

This memory was quickly followed by "867-5309" and "Freebird" Which I know is from the "70s but the rink I went to played it as one of the last songs every time I was there.

I need to take my dd roller skating!!
