Throwback: Peaches & Herb – Roller Skatin’ Mate

I always think of this song being sung as ‘roller skatin, mate.’ Ultimate feel-good tune, just makes me want to reach for the nearest skate and ‘roll on.’

‘Roller Skatin Mate’ is carefree, with squelches in the background that sound like they could be on a children’s programme. Peaches & Herb’s wonderful voices complement each other perfectly, every song they produced is a brilliant example of a disco duet and this is no exception. Whenever they say ‘roll on’ it makes me think of Chic’s ‘Freak Out’ – a super-catchy, two-word phrase said with joyous abandon that it puts you in a great mood.

Roll on!

Release year: 1979
