There was also the infamous "couple skate". Woe betide the boy or girl stuck on the fringes of the rink with no one to skate with. Torture defined is being forced to watch happy couples jaunt by over and over again to the sound of "Joanna" by Kool & the Gang.
If I had to pick the ultimate skate song - a song that just seems tailor made for roller skating - it would, without hesitation, be "Apache" by The Sugarhill Gang. The initial notes sounded the alarm to put down your hot dog and get your ass on the rink and have a good time.
