In Wheeling, WV we used to go to the roller rink to breakdance and skate. Let the Music Play came on when I first went and it was blowing my 6th grade MIND! Massive sound system, flashing lights and it was being spun by a dude called Cosmic Keith. The skate guard was wearing the red iconic Michael Jackson "Beat It" jacket too! People were geekin' out on that jacket!
