Default Roller Skating Songs

Here are a couple of great roller skating songs:

Song: "BRAND NEW KEY"
Artist: Melanie
Listen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owIBVSendIY

Song: "YOU CAN'T ROLLER SKATE IN A BUFFALO HERD"
Artist: Roger Miller
Listen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uj2daexBhgI

Anybody know any other songs that reference roller skating or inline skating?

Skateaway - Dire Straits 1980 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjDD30FjwdM

Skating Away (on the thin ice of a new day) - Jethro Tull 1974. Not sure this one counts but it is a great song

okay, two things:
1. As soon as I saw the thread title, the refrain from that cursed song popped in my head. This song is probably the worst in history for getting stuck in your head. < it's playing right now in my head ... oh I got a brand new pair of roller skates.....thanks Kathie >
2. The slide show that went with it was awesome. That's the one miracle of the internet is that you sometimes stumble over little things that you may never have found otherwise. The big raining cloud telling the little cloud that wasn't raining "You're thinking about it too much." Thanks, Kathie and thanks Kathie... oh I got a brand new pair of roller skates... <speedy starts the delicate process of scheming his revenge, trying to think of songs to stick in her head without getting them stuck in his head>

LOL, so true! One thing about Brand New Key - it is not *really* about roller skating.

Steely Dan "Jack of Speed" on Two Against Nature gives skating a mention and a pic in CD booklet is what looks like '70s or '80s outdoor quad skating teens. Tube socks, white boots, and shorts with racing stripes down the side. First thought the song was about relationship lost to drugs. Hmmmn... may have been lost to skating backward on quad steelies?

I drop one of my mix tapes in to play on the way home, and halfway along was the funkiest roller skating track of all time.....

De La Soul - A Roller Skating Jam Named 'Saturdays'

Roller Derby Queen by Jim Croce, but of course.

We also use "She's a bad mama-jama" since the points scorer in derby is called a "jammer" It's a stretch, but a great song!

River by Joni Mitchell. Ok, so not strictly about skating, but she sings "I wish I had a river to skate away on..." as the chorus, so it should totally count.

Love TKK - didn't even think about that one. I think they have motorcycles in mind though

That's actually Roller Derby saved my Soul by Uncle Leon and the Alibis. I guess I tried to post that too early in the morning!

Default The hard one's

Very good everyone, now its time for some of the harder ones

Kelis - Roller-Rink
Album : KALEIDOSCOPE (2000)

The Archies - Bicycles, Roller Skates and You (2:34)
Album : Everything's Archie (1969)

BTO (Bachman-Turner Overdrive) My Wheel Won't Turn
Album: Freeways (1977)

Charles Wellinger - Come with Me for a Roller Skate: The Roller Skating Song Craze. (1907)

Trooper - Roller Rink
Trooper (1975)

You hurt me like a punch in the mouth
You didn't have to hurt me so bad
You coulda left me something to live for
But you took the only love that I had

I'm gonna go on down to the roller rink
And roll my blues away
Gonna strap on a pair of roller skates
And roll ...

Blue, downhearted too
But I made up my mind
What I'm gonna do

I'm gonna go on down to the roller rink
And roll my blues away
Gonna strap on a pair of roller skates
And roll ...

That's a good song. The Dollyrots cover it on 2007's "Because I'm Awesome." I've been meaning to brink a copy to the rink, and badger the DJ to play it.
