Default A Good Song

Yes Good,

Lots of good songs like this that are not played at rinks. They tend to play the current pop 40 even if they are lousy for skating.

It is the beat that makes it good. You can do it normal time or speed up and do it at twice the beat.

Yours in Skating, MA/NY Skating Dave

Thumbs up I love disco/funk

Disco was not my generation. I wish it was. But when I first learned to skate at a rink that's the music they played and I instantly LOVED it!!! It's good clean fun music to dance to and I think if they played it more at the rinks, even this generation would love it!!

I wouldn't know any of the top 40 songs because I don't listen to today's music.

Other good ones for skating .....

I don't know who wouldn't dance if they heard these songs!!!

Those are awesome tunes for skating. But don't discount the current top 40. Try Chunkin by Bruno Mars. Oh yes, slow songs are awesome for skating as well. Whatever they play just skate.

Smile Yes

You can be sure if its got a good beat I'll get up and do my thang

No doubt!

I noticed a lot of Bruno Mars songs sound like beats from the 70/80's dance

Goes to show those beats never go out of style
I don't thing any artist of today though can quite replicate those songs from back in the day!

Have you heard this one. An instant classic.

Even top 40 stations are playing it in Houston.

Disco was my generation and was in the rinks in the late '70's when I started skating. Friday nights are our old school, funk and disco nights at the rink. Tuesday nights work better for me but occasionally I get to go on a Friday. I went last week and dressed from head to toe in sequins! I wore a vintage 80s sequin butterfly shirt, a black sequined miniskirt, black sequined wrist guards, tights, and silver sequined boot covers that I made just for that night! It was a blast. I also love skating to the Barry White song you posted.

Barry White+1 and donít forget Lou Rawls and Billy Pual and Donna Summers, etc,etc,etc

Haha. Yeah, I'm probably a bit obnoxious to some people for my rink clothing options. But hey, it adds to my fun! The double exterior doors to our rink are painted lime green. I have coined them "The Magic Green Doors". Real life and problems are left at the door for 2 1/2 hours each time I walk through them. Once in a blue moon I wear jeans. A regular skater once said, "I've never seen you wear jeans to the rink!" Ha. No, usually it's some sparkly thing, classy, funky, dressy, just cute, or whatever I'm feeling that night. It's my "club night out" and I'm "Keeping it on push"!! 😎💃
