Default Our Most Played Fast Skate Song ?

Through all my early and middle years of skating, I can recall doing the fast skate to Boston's " Smokin' " more than any other song (as I didn't begin sk8ing til November 1976). Have any of you skaters also fast-skated to Smokin' more times than any other song ?

I have never heard "Smokin'" played in a rink, but Boston albums are in regular rotation on my iPod.


OTOH, your photo brings back lots of great memories of my speed skating days...

The Smokin' on the fast skate could have been a local east NC thing; as I had only observed it at rinks in this area.... Yeah, I did speed also for about three months, til my work schedule changed and conflicted with practice - so I was obliged to give it up before I ever got to my first meet. I did manage to build up my speed and wind enough to spank the entire speed team (most of which were non-smokers) in a 50 lap endurance race, quite an accomplishment for a smoker such as myself !

Around here Du Hast by Rammstein was often played during fast skates. They don't do fast skates anymore.

Default An Old Tread On Speed Skate Songs

Hi rink,

Will look at your song later to see if I have heard it.

Here is my starting post inquiring on Speed Skate songs from SLF members since I thought the ones that were being used kind of sucked. As it turned out shortly after I got the list they stopped doing them.

I liked some of those from NewZealand and Australia, and Who let the dogs out is always nice https://search.yahoo.com/search?p=yo...r=dss_yset_chr

Now at RollOn, they are irregular to say the least. One song the DJs like to play I don't know the name. Someday I will ask. Hey maybe it is yours.

Yours in Skating, MA/NY Skating Dave

Edit-01 Nope not Smokin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GzMx9CnhVk

I've been skating since '74 and can't really recall the most popular song during faster skates in the 70's. (old age is setting in)

What I do remember is that one of the most popular sings during the 80's was Shoot to Thrill by AC/DC. It's also my favorite AC/DC song. Lots of adrenaline and speed.
