"Wrong" Polish music

I don't know if they have an equivalent for it in English, but in Dutch we speak about "wrong music" (lit. translated), when it concerns very bad kitschy but funny music which every Dutchmen knows.

I was wondering if you guys could point me to some of those songs in Poland so that I could learn them on my guitar and make my Polish friends laugh when I visit them. :D

I think you mean the Polish disco-polo - a simple disco music by amateour singers originated from Polish country.

I think it will suit. Could you give me some songs/artist names?
Furthermore in The Netherlands that sort of kitschy music is not only disco pop, but it ranges from schlager like songs sang by common figures, to "house wife pop", or that is where their public mostly consist of. :P

Thiziz ******* great! -> I love it!!

I think Polish disco polo was an important element of the Polish culture and Polish people. And it still is - on Polish weddings Polish people have the greatest fun when dancing to Polish disco polo music. It's not "wrong" music at all.

It's not "wrong" music at all

wrong - maybe not, but very bad it is

timekcatkins,

if you can do the one below, everyone will be more than impressed.
The text is very poetic, albeit difficult even for a Polish native speaker.

you can sample it here:

More songs by the same group:

I wonder if TomekCatkins ever worked out any Disco Polo on the guitar.
I don't want to have to arrange any of this stuff for the banjo.
