When she’s not wrangling all the critical elements that keep KXCI’s membership support base thriving or holding down the Afternoon Music Mix on Fridays from 1-3 p.m., Michelle is on a never-ending quest to find the perfect “Rollerskating Backwards Song.” What precisely does this mean? I’ll let the lady herself articulate her personal definition:
While the term roller skating backwards song makes perfect sense to a lass like myself, many have asked me about the literal definition for the RSBS. I happened to find this straightforward definition from my very own MBS Groovaliscious Glossary:
Roller skating backwards song:
[roh-ler-skeyt -een bak-werds sawng, song]
A song that comes with such a sweet beat you’ve got to put wheels on your feet, and a compulsory urge to sway your hips from side to side all the while in a backwards glide.
Now that it’s crystal clear, here are my favorite roller skating backwards songs of 2015 (proudly featuring two local artists):
