some favorite albums in no particular order...

Prawdziwa miłość - Atrakcyjny Kazimierz,
Dziecko - Edyta Bartosiewicz,
Cztery - Raz, dwa trzy
Sercopisanie - Stare Dobre Małżeństwo
I also liked the first Mydełko Fa album (beyond the title song even....)

You all have very good taste!
I left out the classic old bands Budka Suflera,Perfekt,Lady Pank and Dzem from my original post because my list was getting too long.

As for all the other artists you posted,I like most of them too.
The only ones that are not to my taste are Atrakcyjny Kazmierz and Mydelko Fa....sorry Mafketis,but that's probably more a reflection of me and not the music.

Of the newer artists,I like Goya and Kayah best.
Maybe someone should tell Crow what a great album Bregovic made with Kayah..... :-)

Mydelko Fa....

After being in Poland several months in 1991 I played Polish music for American graduate students (doktoranci) mostly in social sciences and/or latin american studies. To a person the song they liked best was mydełko fa (stare dobre małżeństwo and marek grechuta bored them to tears).

True story...

Wodecki

RIP Zbyszek Wodecki - it's been a year.

We need to be careful - disco polo might rule the world one day ...
I like Grechuta - but you need to understand the lyrics. And I need to admit I know only his greatest hits.
Actually I think I'm more into songs than artists.

Merged:

Polish Popular Music.



I thought I'd start a thread about Polish Pop/Rock music as the quality and breadth of Polish music has hugely increased in recent years.

I hope this thread is left alone by the mods and not merged so that it disappears forever......
So I'll kick of with one one my favourite Polish Rock bands,with a particularly heavy song from them,which I love.

Great idea for a thread, but I predict that within a day it will be attached to some other, very unrelated, thread.

Anyhoo, recently the two artists I like most are Kortez

youtube.com/watch?v=3BnfiJnHXvk

and Tulia (though the harmonies sound more Bulgarian than Pollish...)

(I love Brodka's cover of 'Wszystko czego dziś chce' but that's more for the video than the song itself.
And a highly sexualized strip club is not very transgressive now, Trojanowska's performance wearing a man's suit no less was transgressive and brave in the stuffy PRL, but no one's shocked by strippers any more....

Here is another one from Wilki,that,for me,shows a difference between Poles and many other Europeans.
Poles are Ogien.....

@mafketis

Kortez is bloody superb,I have followed him for a while now.
But Tulia is new to me,thank you for introducing me to her talent.

Polish Pop/Rock music

Jolly good scheme. There have been many Polish bands who are superb musicians, but if you are talking about music as something that moves you, and takes you on a journey, then one group stood alone. IMO, and that of millions of Poles.

I predict that within a day it will be attached to some other, very unrelated, thread.

Yes - everything that's wrong about this forum - as in, the Mods are determined that there be no community:(

We may disagree on politics etc,but we are as one musically.
Like me,you are obviously a very serious music fan,actually,probably even more than me,as you seem to be better informed.
Excellent post!

Nah! Not at all M (blushing smiley). I knows as much or as little as the next music fan. You're right that music matters though:) I was impressed by Mafs' choices (Dzem are an obvious choice; they have been both honoured, and villified - for carrying on without Reidel and Berger - but it's their whole existence). AS for rock and blues, I used to hang out with some of the Katowice musos in another life, not that they knew or cared "who" I was, but they sometimes invited me into their homes, and all of them were extremely intelligent and likeable people to a man (and woman)

Wilki couldn't quite bring it to the Czeslaw Niemen cover they did, for me - because he was another of the unique talents.

An incredibly guilty pleasure - youtube.com/watch?v=EAI0cTc1Yj0

Lombard were unashamedly a ripoff of Roxette, but I actually prefer Ostrowska's voice.

I also have a soft spot for Anna Jantar - youtube.com/watch?v=5AFfPKvCQlY - she finally got a street named after her in Poznań a couple of years ago.

As predicted,the mods moved my new thread.....but actually,I can't really complain,this still works.....

@delphianedomine

I like both of your very different posts....both a bit cheesy,but likeable.

@mafketis

I like this one from Kortez.

And then they diabolically travelled into the past to try to seem more original....

And this is gorgeous.....

You're right that music matters though:) I

Absolutely Doug!
Music crosses cultural,political,religious and almost every other boundary you can think of.
It is our ONLY universal language.

We all know that Polish literature,poetry,music,in fact all Polish arts can be quite dark.....it must be something in our history.... LOL!

But I am curious to see what you think of the four videos I have here...all fairly recent....

I _loathed_ him when he won the Polish Idol (long time ago) but Zalewski has turned into a not terrible performer. Not a big fan, but he's lightyears ahead of where he was...

So here is a classic Polish song,that for me,is the closest to the concept of "Chansons Francaise".

Me too.....this guy is superb.....and he's Polish!!!!
:-)

So,here we go......some great music that some Poles might find a little bit "Challenging",but I hope not....

m.youtube.com/watch?v=4FAsqZs8XMY&list=PL1-It4eutGBq9dM-zTpzUua9E8rjmDBjy&t=0s&index=2

How about his?

Agreed, would love to see him in concert!

Love it, very catchy. Not keen on the others though.

Polands' greatest blues guitarist, in terms of that unfathomable feeling for the blues. None other than Tadeusz Nalepa:) Run close by Leszek Winder and others.

So here is a classic Polish song,

Talking of classic songs, I was gifted this CD by a lover as a parting gift. I couldn't bear to listen to it for several years, it was so raw, but I still think it is the greatest Polish love song I have ever heard, from the genius that is Grzegorz Turnau

Yeah,not bad Spike31.

I have a few more for you....bit unusual this one....

And I have a feeling that some people might hate this one..

m.youtube.com/watch?v=Nixe43X8vgs&index=8

Surely this is a winner...

I messed up my last post by posting the second song twice.....
This is what I meant to post to end with.
