I think I like Przyjdź w taką noc the most.
And here is another singer who was on Idol. I forgot about her, just like about Zalewski. I kind of looked through different videos from Idol and remembered her.

I found a song she did with Yugopolis.
Gosia Stępień

That's beautiful, Kaprys. I actually don't know the original - Parni valjak - Vrijeme ljubavi

(if my Croatian holds up here, it translates as "Time of love").
17 Nov 2020 #693
I saw Annuszka and was blown away

I wasn't sure about it when I first heard it, but it's grown on me and I really like it. Haven't heard the Halo cover yet though.

I found a song she did with Yugopolis.

Really lovely song :)

You have to love the 90s :-)

You have to love the 90s :-)

They're not the worst decade but I remember that Polish music critics (and often the audience) seemed to hate the idea of melody... anything with a clear and pleasant melody was branded "łatwo wpadające w ucho" as if that were evidence of inferiority...

A (to me) very underrated Polish group of that time was Big Day

W dzień gorącego lata (on a hot summer's day)

Haha, music (and film) critics are broken inside individuals, unfulfilled artists most of them ;-). I don't take their reviews into account when picking a new album.

To enrage them even more I have to say that I like Stachursky's new album :-D

Stachursky - Zaginaaay

I actually love listening to Dzień gorącego lata. Such a positive song.

As for other songs about the summer, I remember this video to a song about the summer with lots of people in it but it was filmed while it was raining. Lots of people in the video, lots of colours and kind of 1990s atmosphere. I can't remember the song or the artists, I just remember there was such a video. And now it's gonna bother me. Any ideas what it might be? :)

that kind of music

The fast section of Rap God was inspired by the female rap group JJ Fad and their biggest song 'Supersonic' from 1988 (also sampled in Fergielicious in 2006)

relevatn part starts at 2.34...

I came across this amazing rendition of Tchaikovsky's Sugar Plum Fairy by a Polish couple known as GlassDuo. They play the biggest glass harp in the world which spans 5 octaves. Not sure this is to everyone's taste, but I thought it was brilliant.

Not sure if it's popular, but I loved that!

My recent finding:

Garaż w Leeds - Szept Pamieci

The video is well worth a watch - very low budget, but seems to perfectly sum up the 1980's in Poland.

Garaż w Leeds - Szept Pamieci

I really liked this. They remind me of Joy Division and believe it or not, early Cure tracks.

My turn:

So, I think that Chopin was probably the greatest musical talent to come from Poland.
But I am not an expert of Chopin and not even a great fan of classical music.
But I do know that he gained musical influences by travelling across Poland and that Polih Folk music and even Jewish music influenced his compositions.Perhaps someone with more knowledge than me will post some of his greatest pieces.

Me? I am just a pleb when it comes to that sort of music.
I love my Rock, Blues, Jazz and Funk.
I have a few Pop tunes for you tonight.
Yeah, it is only Pop Music, but hey,, it is POLISH Pop music......
This is Sanah with "Melodia", I think it is very Polish.

More Polish Pop music.
This is Ochman with "Swiatociene"
He has a pretty good voice.

Pop Rock from a band that remind me a bit of The Cardigans.
This is Meskie Granie Orkestra with "Swit".

This is very much Polish Pop/Rock again.
I have posted this before, but it is quite a nice tune and video.
Buzu Squat with "Naszse Przebudziene"

There are sometimes some voices that just chill you to the bone.....this is one of them...
I can think of at least one American female singer with a voice like this and one French one.
From the voice alone I can tell that she has had a very tough life.
I don't know her name, but the band is O.N.A and the song is "Kiedy Powiem sobie dosc".... just superb.....


I liked that one.
It is interesting that some Polish music does share some Germanic traits, especially the nihilistic ones.
But it is not rhe same as German musiic.

Some good tracks in there Milo. I was only listening to Sanah last week but Szampan and not Melodia. Loved the Buzu Squat and Męskie Granie Orkiestra songs :)

A few from me now:

Sanah - Szampan

Noc Komety - Budka Suflera

Budka Suflera - Jest taki samotny dom

Znowu w życiu mi nie wyszło".wmv Budka Suflera

Budka Suflera - Bal wszystkich świętych

I liked the Sanah song.
But this may sound almost sacrilegious, but I only liked your third Budka Suflera post..... the others left me cold....hey, we all have our different tastes and I admire your broad range and acceptance of different styles of music.

I think Polish Popular music is difficult for non Poles to get their heads around it and enjoy it, as it can be quite deep.

Budka Suflera - Bal wszystkich świętych

A couple of decades ago, you couldn't get away from that song here. In the circular underpass near Metro Centrum where the small shops are, they were piping it through the speakers 24/7. It must have driven the shop staff crazy.

Thanks to PCSczyrik

I discovered this great band.
Satellite with "Evening Games'

Yeah, PCSczyrk, some of your Polish Prog Rock recomedations were prety good.

This is Exodus with a live song that I don't know the title of.

Disperse was another band recommended by PCSczyrk.
This is a band that I did know, but it gave me a chance to investigate them again.
There really are some very good Polish Prog Rock bands out there.
This is Disperse with "Message from Atlantis".

Hey, PCSczyrk, I hope you join PF properly and post your opinions on here.
I and a few others would love to see some musical posts from you.I can say that you have opened my eyes to Polish Rock that I did not know.

This is Marek Piekarczyk with " Nie widze ciebie w swych marzeniach".

I love this, because it is so Polish.
Yugopolis & Maciej Malenczuk with "Ostatnia Nocka"

That's my lot for tonight.
It would be great if this thread was kept high in the ratings on here.
But that is up to you, that know Polish music.

Milo brate, is this in connection to Yugoslavia or Serbia in particular?

No, don`t tell me, its insignificant. Or, its significant.

SPOT THIS > Bajaga & Instruktori - Verujem-Ne verujem

@ Milo

I liked the Marek Piekarczyk one and loved the Yugopolis and Maciej Malenczuk song which I have heard before.

I love this, because it is so Polish.

That is the modern version of the original Serbian/Yugoslav song:

Bajaga i Instruktori - Verujem ne verujem

I don't know which version I prefer to be honest, they are both great.

I am sure this next song will soon become popular, although it's not really my taste. I'm actually quite impressed with it because the majority of Eurovision songs are absolute sh!te, but I do feel that Poland has done quite well with this! Here is Rafał ( Brzozowski ) with the Eurovision 20121 entry, The Ride:

Yugopolis and brat Maciej is true discovery to me. Great performance and rich voice.

Bajaga i Instruktori - Verujem ne verujem

Bajaga is writer, singer and leader of band `Bajaga i instruktori` from Belgrade. As songs of all good Serbian musicians, as I read, his also got their versions all over the Slavic world.

`Bajaga i instruktori`

I have listened to quite a few of their songs and like them. I've posted another of their songs on the other music thread..

Great performance and rich voice.

It is indeed.

A few more from me, this time from former singer of the band Myslovitz, Artur Rojek.

Artur Rojek - A miało być jak we śnie

Artur Rojek - Bez końca

Artur Rojek - Długość dźwięku samotności

I loved all your posts..
But do you know what I am intrigued with and love the most?
It is the fact that you, as a British woman, just absolutely gets the Polish psychie and mentality......
I don't understand how a British woman can be so in tune wirh Polish mentality......
If you feel comfortable with it, please PM me.
If you don't, I will completely understand.

@Chemikiem, I like those Artur Rojek's songs, especially the lyrics in "A miało być jak we śnie" - very honest. And, of course, the classic "Długość dźwięku samotności" :)
15 Mar 2021 #717

Maybe I was Polish in a former life ;)

If you feel comfortable with it, please PM me.

Sorry Milo, but I don't PM anyone on here. I've seen how people rat on each other and how PF 'friendships' turn sour and nasty. There's been enough untrue crap written about me over the years without anyone ever knowing anything about me, let alone if they did! I'm not suggesting that you would be anything other than just a nice guy, but the less people know, the better as far as I'm concerned. I know that you will understand what I'm saying and it's really nothing personal 😃

Now for some music! Tonight I'm playing Myslovitz, the band Artur Rojek was once a singer with.

Myslovitz - My

Myslovitz | Scenariusz dla moich sąsiadów

Myslovitz | Mieć czy być

That is a very strong possibility with your knowledge and afinity to all things Polish.....

Sorry Milo, but I don't PM anyone on here

Perfectly understandable, I just wanted to ask you one question privately.
You may or may not want to answer it publicly.
What attracted you to Poland, Polish people,Polish culture,Polish the level that you have even tried to learn the language, difficult as it is.....I am just being nosey...... ignore me if I am invading your privacy....or PM stubborn Polish style woman LOL!!!!

Your music posts tonight were, as always, very good and very Polish...... :-)
18 Mar 2021 #719
you stubborn Polish style woman LOL!!!!

Yep, that's me :)

Any thoughts on Poland's 2021 Eurovision entry?

Rafał The Ride:

I really don't see or hear it making it into the finals... I've heard that the singer is a favorite of Kurski's wife....

Mostly the entries this year seem blah or like warmed up leftovers from last year.....

Switzerland and Iceland (both warmed over re-entries) probably top my list. Don't like Italy (a perennial fave of mine) I sort of like Spain but it has no chance... Lithuania and Malta (more warmed up leftovers) are okay.... I guess..... nothing new makes much of an impression....
