Examples of popular Polish music?

you could always write the names of the artists and songs

The voice of reason as always.
I do mean to but I post on several platforms where it is not necessary because the artist and song title come up on the embeded video.

It is hard for me to remember that because of PF's policy, that I need to do this.
But I will try.

I loved all of your posts and you both introduced me to new stuff too.


This must be a generational thing... I am too old to appreciate this kind of stuff.

Sorry Iron, not my type of music at all, but I think you're as much into her legs as the songs!

My choices this morning:

Percival - Wild Hunt Live - Hunt Or Be Hunted |The Witcher 3 song

Percival - Marzanecka

Meluzyna is a great song anyway -originally from a film for children.
Ostrowska is amazing -tiny blonde with a rock voice. Plus having seen her make up from the 80s or so, she seems to have been avant garde for Lady Gaga.

But apparently rock singers would record songs for films for children in the eighties

Yes, I admit, I contributed only one or two posts meant as a joke. I never liked this thread.

Pfff, I couldn't find the thread.

The 2020 edition of Męskie Granie - Świt was released just yesterday.
Początek is still my favourite.
As for this one, I guess I need to listen to it a couple of times.

Hey how can I find a list of Polish covers of Western songs? I bet they often covered hits in the PRL times as they did in other commie countries. But I want anything from the 60s until the early 2010s (2014).

Oh and in these difficult times we need escapism more than ever. Are there any similar pure fun cheesy songs made in Poland in the late 90s/early 2000s:

It's an ok tune but it doesn't move me in the same way that Początek does.

Maleńczuk & Waglewski - Koledzy

Maleńczuk-Cicha Woda

Not really a thing to any significant degree....

It was common in Czechoslovakia but not so much in Poland where performers were much more likely to try to sing in the language of the original (with decidedly.... mixed results).

To the extent it was a thing in Poland it would usually be a Polish language version of a song not well known in Poland. IIRC one hit by Stachursky (Typ niepokorny?) was a cover of an American country song (I want to say by Kenny Chesney).

It also happens for songs in Disney movies of course.

I have an exactly the same feeling about the song.
But I need to check that Igo guy, I like his voice.

Daria Zawialow recorded a nice cover of Jeszcze w zielone gramy. - great lyrics by late Wojciech Młynarski.

I like Maleńczuk, too. He did a cover of Jeszcze w zielone gramy and other songs by Młynarski.
Cicha woda is actually a cover, too.
Here's the original version. I don't know if you know it.

I know his original songs are great but his covers are fantastic.

There's this festiwal muzyki country in Mrągowo but I don't think they ever made it to the charts.

Ooh, I do like that!

Here's the original version. I don't know if you know it.

No I didn't know it, but had to find it on Youtube. Your link says that the video is unavailable as playback has been blocked by the video owner.

To be honest I prefer the Maleńczuk cover, but maybe it's because I'd heard that version first.
4 Jul 2020 #619
mafketis us & kaprys, thank you both!
That's the The One and Only, a fine melody indeed. I will check Mrągowo also.
And btw how is the Polish Top chart of hits called? Wiki suggests "AirPlay Top". I might be able to pull up the charts of the past few years somehow.

Kaczmarski and Mury

There is no different meaning to it. It about Soviet oppression and occupation of Poland.

Not true,Cztery-Pory-Roku-13122016-cz-2-1009

At 11:00 they start to talk about this song. And how people like you misinterpret it. To the point to boo out the last part.,Mury-piosenka-ktorej-Polacy-nie-zrozumieli

Kaczmarski hated the fact that it became the Solidarnosc song.

too bad. Things like that happen all the time. For it is about yearning for freedom and an end to the Soviet occupation. "Solidarity" thingy that was the thing of the older generation. I'm not totally onboard with that. They lost.

It's about how the oppressed might become the oppressors - peasants and labourers oppressed for years by the elites broke down the walls but then the movement became oppressive as well.

Simple as that.
As for any song or poem it's open for interpretations. Kaczmarski even stated that the song started its own life.
His explanation in Polish (sorry, mods)
Mury" napisałem w 1978 r. jako utwór o nieufności do wszelkich ruchów masowych. Usłyszałem nagranie Luisa Llacha i śpiewający, wielotysięczny tłum i wyobraziłem sobie sytuację - jako egoista i człowiek, który ceni sobie indywidualizm w życiu - że ktoś tworzy coś bardzo pięknego, bo jest to przepiękna muzyka, przepiękna piosenka, a potem zostaje pozbawiony tego swojego dzieła, bo ludzie to przechwytują. Dzieło po prostu przestaje być własnością artysty i o tym są "Mury". I ballada ta sama siebie wywróżyła, bo z nią się to samo stało. Stała się hymnem, pieśnią ludzi i przestała być moja.

Another version - much sadder, Mury '87
