I heard a song this morning that reminded me of way back when I was in junior high and my little brother and I would go to the skating rink every weekend. Once I got into junior high, we were deemed old enough to go by ourselves. My dad would drop us off, give us $20 and tell us he'd be back at 11pm. We would rent our skates and I would make sure to wear two pairs of socks because those rental skates were not made for comfort. We'd split up to hang with friends, eat, play games, and skate to our fav songs. There was a DJ, so we would make requests and dedications and hope we could find someone for the couple skates.
This is where I met Brandy, one of my best friends. I saw her there a lot and we started talking and ended up hanging out all the time. I met many cute guys there, slapped my first one, and we perfected dancing while on wheels.
Here is a list of some of those forgotten memories of music played while we were skating around, wishing we were older and not knowing how great we had it.
Mr. Big "To Be With You"
Right Said Fred "I'm Too Sexy"
Color Me Badd "All 4 Love"
Boyz II Men "End of the Road", "On Bended Knee", "I'll Make Love to You" (they had quite a streak)
LL Cool J (with Boyz II Men) "Hey Lover"
Tag Team "Whoomp, There it is"
H Town "Knockin' Da Boots"
Duice "Dazzey Duks" (yes, that's how they spelled it)
Shai "Baby I'm Yours", "If I Ever Fall In Love"
There are just too many to list. If you want to have a blast from the past and see a list of songs you've completely forgotten but used to totally love, check out Music Outfitters. That is the link for the year 1993. If you want to check out a different year, just change the year in the web address. Talk about memories. More on that later.
