The Ohio Players - Love Rollercoaster song

The Ohio Players - Love Rollercoaster song on WLCY Radio


Love Rollercoaster is a song by American funk/R&B band The Ohio Players, originally featured on their 1975 album Honey. It was composed by Beck, Bonner, Jones, Middlebrooks, Pierce, Satchell, and Williams.

The song uses the roller coaster, a common theme park attraction, as a metaphor for the ups and downs of dating and romantic relationships. The roller coaster metaphor is also suggested musically as the guitarist plays a funk riff which slides up and back down repeatedly throughout the song, from the key of G down to the key of E and back up to the key of G.
