Some of the suggestions, such as the first two, are classic skating songs, some I only heard for the first time while compiling this list, and some are not necessarily ice skating songs but are motivational none the less. The styles of the songs range from symphonic to electronic, from solo to banjo, from punk to funk. Hopefully you find a song to inspire you out on the ice somewhere this season.
Check out the songs by clicking on the song title for the iTunes link, or when available the YouTube video has been added.
Happy skating, happy listening, and happy holidays!
