What are the chances that the 1981 500cc world champion, former cocaine addict, former convict and Italian pop star would write a song about the most successful World Superbike racer of all time? Pretty slim, but not as slim as the chances of that song being pretty good. Here’s “Foggy Day” by Marco Lucchinelli. >

Can any Italian speakers provide a translation?

  • Nick

    Hi, I’m italian… but… it’s better you don’t understand what Lucky is singing… I prefer to don’t translate and I prefer him when he was a rider…

    It’s something like

    “foggy foggy foggy day, but you don’t know that we’ll never end to ride, foggy foggy foggy day, and the people like us deserve a lot of Lucky day”

    and many other amazing sentences…

  • vic

    legalize cocaine

    long live foggy

  • Nick

    The chances of him writing a song about Fogarty are greater when you consider that Marco rode for Ducati for a few races in WSBK and was then team manager.

  • Nick

    And actually Marco and Carl are old friends.

    I wonder if Marco ever did coke out of Foggy’s bellybutton…

    • Wes Siler

      That is a relevant and important question. Somebody needs to ask him.

    I’ll try and find his coke dealers number in my olde blackberry.
