My daughter Lauren turned 12 over the weekend. In part because I spent most of my weekend nights at the local roller rink, I was a lot more into music at 12 than my Lauren is.
This is one of her favorite songs right now:
When I was 12, skating laps around the roller rink in my white skates with red and blue stripes, this was one of my favorite songs:
While my friends sang along to Michael Jackson on the radio, I blared the volume on every Prince tune. This 1983 video shows him performing "Delerious" live at First Avenue in Minneapolis.
If you have some favorite roller rink songs or want to share the music you loved at age 12, leave a comment or contact me on twitter. It would be great to hear from you!
