SKATE CITY STAR WARS
When I was a kid – and Denver people of my generation, you’re going to remember this – I used to go to Skate City. It was a small chain of roller rinks in the suburbs surrounding the Denver area and everyone who was anyone wanted to be there. Skate City had it all: girls, carpeted walls, unhealthy snacks, a speed skate every hour and girls. Did I mention girls?
Every trip to Skate City also featured multiple spinnings of the Star Wars theme – disco style!
Do you remember this? I’ll bet, if you’re of a certain age, you do. The Star Wars Theme disco remix was a huge Billboard hit.
Do yourself a favor. Take a listen!
