Bad Romance, what’s yours?

The song that clicks to the top of your mind-playlist as the sun shimmers off the water and you swoop into that first bear away. The boat accelerates, the foils hum and the in-your-head volume cranks up. 

What would your perfect foiling playlist 8-track be? Like all what’s your favourite music questions, it can be mood and situation dependent. A light wind evening, barely ghosting silently on the foils in the setting sun conjures up some different mind-tracks to a high wind, big chop survival pitchpole fest but my old faithfuls that just keep coming up. I would love to give you a reason for each, how it makes me feel, what it reminds me of, why I chose it but the simple answer is that I don’t know - they just pop into my head and join me foiling. So at risk of revealing my somewhat debatable musical tastes, here is my 8-track playlist - what are your favourite foiling tracks?

Bad Romance - Lady Gaga
Circle the Drain - Katy Perry
Wild Ones - Flo Rida 
Blow me (one last kiss) - Pink
Save me, San Francisco - Train
Illusion and Dream - Poets of the Fall
Suddenly - LeAnn Rimes

Danger Zone - Kenny Loggins
