10 to Spin | Donora

Pittsburgh trio Donora knows how to have a good time. How do I know? Well, for starters, their 10 to Spin below has a roller skating theme. And the video they released for their sophomore album, Boyfriends, Girlfriends, features hot tubs, pinatas, balloons, barbeques, karaoke, making out after fighting, and lotsa confetti. Have a look/listen.

Yeah, I wanna party with Donora. And roller skate with them, too. Enjoy the latest spin below.

Top 10 Songs for Boyfriends and Girlfriends to Roller Skate To

Autumn is the perfect time to fall in love, and roller skating is the perfect activity for boyfriends and girlfriends to do together.  We can remember many Saturday nights spent at our local roller rink, Romp 'n Roll, and these are some of our favorite songs we used to skate to.  We've also included some new tracks that surely would have been a hit out on the rink floor!

Bananarama - Cruel Summer
This song is great for roller skating or getting into a fight in gym class.  That Johnny Lawrence is such a jerk.

Brazilian Girls - Good Time
We just want to have a good time and roller skate. What else needs to be said?

The Cars - Magic
Ric Ocasec is a genius. Please produce more albums.

Neon Indian - Polish Girl
We think this would be a great modern-day roller skating song. But we also put it on this list cause we wanted to sound cool.

Micheal Jackson - Don't Stop Till You Get Enough
We still haven't gotten enough.

MGMT - Electric Feel
We desperately wish this song was out during our roller skating heyday, cause we have some sick moves in mind. 

The Beach Boys - Wouldn't It Be Nice
Wouldn't it be nice if we could hold hands and roller skate all day long?

Brenda Lee - Sweet Nothings
This song is perfect for practicing your crossover moves. 

The Very Best - Warm Heart of Africa
We don't know how many roller skating rinks they have in Africa, but if we were visiting one, this would be the song we'd request.

The Cure - Friday I'm In Love
Couples' skate only.
