Valentine’s Day is almost here, and we’re hosting a romantic event you won’t want to miss. Roller skating is a classic date activity- after all, it comes with a built-in excuse to hold hands- and our Valentine’s Day Skate is the perfect way to break out of the boring-date mold and show your sweetie a good time.
As Cupid readies his bow and arrows and you battle it out with your fellow shoppers for candy, stuffed animals, and the perfect red roses, take a break to check out some of our picks for the best couples skate songs of all time (or at least the last few decades). And don’t stop there- head on over to Facebook and tell us your favorite couples skate songs!
The Jackson 5, “I Want You Back”
Could anything embody the carefree, youthful fun of roller skating better than this classic skate jam? Named one of Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, “I Want You Back” is the perfect song to skate or dance to with your special someone.
Poison, “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”
Skate back in time to the days of hair metal and power ballads. This earnest 1988 single references cowboys and has a slight country feel, so it takes a top spot on our list of favorite couples skate songs here in North Texas.
Mariah Carey, “Fantasy”
Nothing says 1995 like Mariah Carey roller skating on a boardwalk! This upbeat Carey classic is a fun throwback that will have you singing along as you and your significant other zip around the skating rink.
