Try this.

Typical 1980s music. Even the high voice of the lead singer fits. Not really my thing.

Hey, since you like prog rock maybe this is something for you? British band, though, and a little jazzy.

@Ironside

I liked Mirek Bielinski.
Dawid Podsialdlo was a bit boring.
Brodka was not bad.

@Chemikiem

Showing my age now.... I quite liked Dwa plus Jeden.....despite the haircuts..... I remember them well.... :-)

This is more my kinda stuff though;

@Dougpol1

Except for the Polish blues band that Joker posted, I haven't really seen anything that wouldn't be considered mainstream. Mainstream 1970s, mainstream 1980's, mainstream ... . I know the thread title is "popular Polish music", but wasn't there anything experimental coming from Poland? I mean, like psychedelic, jazz rock or something quirky like Hawkwind? Doug, you've been there long enough. Any thoughts?

There is a lot of Prog Rock, Reggae and Rap in Poland right now.
Also a lot of Celtic Music.
Not sure that any of those are your thing really, but you might like this.

A lot! But mostly in the PRL, because the authorities didn't really understand it.

Penderecki is perhaps one of the most famous of them all - youtube.com/watch?v=_wMt1CaD0Ik

Here is something new and interesting coming out of Poland.

psychedelic, jazz rock

Well sure. Troubadurzy and Czeslaw Nieman did Psychedelic - to a point - but I wasn't here then! Jazz rock, SBB comes to mind.

Listening to Yes at the moment - Polish bands are OK I guess, but as the hero in writer Alan Sillitoe's "A start in life" famously said, looking at pron is alright, but you can't beat the real thing.

@Delph
I like that piece by Penderecki. Reminds me of early Pink Floyd material from Atom Heart Mother and record 2 of Ummagumma.

@Miloslaw
Interesting indeed. Kroki has commercial potential.

@Doug
Have to check them out. Thanks.

But there is still so much good Polish Music.
Because this forum has this stupid rule that you cannot post if you were the last poster.... Admin, please kill that.
I will now post a mish mosh of Polish Music videos as I do not know when I will be able to post again.

And I'll end with an old classic and one of my favourites, from one of Poland's greatest Rock bands.

Milo, the last one is great.

Czeslaw Nieman

Not really psychedelic, but I like it. Nice 60s feel to it.

Not for me, they sound like they're trying too hard tbh.

Choose your own songs!

Must have missed your posting Doug, I can't help it if we both have good taste :)

stupid rule that you cannot post if you were the last poster..

That's to do with editing time I think, because you've tried to post something else too soon, and you could still edit your last post.

mish mosh of Polish Music videos

Loved the Wilki one, and liked the Organek one too, not too keen on the others.

One of the many problems that this forum has is not retaining embedded videos and quickly returning them to meaningless links.
Which means that none of us can easily check if we have posted something before.
So, I apologise if I have posted some of these videos before.
But hey, it's all good Polish Music!

youtu.be/aflmCuUfq-I

For me, this is very Polish.

youtu.be/AYOis02tujI

This one just blows my mind.

youtu.be/_FTBu0qjybo

Whilst I probably have to admit a little bit of hippy in my heart, I am actually more Hard Rock and Blues.
But I like this kind of stuff when it is done well, and this is done well.

youtu.be/I2eWcmjp680

This is a very good Polish Goth Rock band.

I'll end with this one.

I'm not a fan of his solo stuff at all. I saw Myslovitz years ago and enjoyed them, but his solo stuff just sounds dire in comparison.

I have some Bluesy Polish music tonight.
For you Brits and Yanks, just remember that Polish Blues will never be exactly what you think of as "The Blues"...it will always have a Polish flavour.

But hey, it's pretty good too..... try it out.

youtu.be/B5LYQMZTVS0

Just good Polish Blues.

youtu.be/CA0O6avrWz8

This one is dripping in class.

youtu.be/i5RdHylEzMQ

My penultimate post tonight.Very good.

youtu.be/uYybxfrMuIM

I'll end with this one tonight.Though still very Polish, it is maybe the closest to American Blues/Rock that I have posted tonight.

youtu.be/NBCW5SJWdOs

Mods, please give my embeddded links at least 24 hours..... :-) use the YT link to create embedded links.

I did. And you keep deleting my posts...creepy....

Sorry guys, but I am not going to bother posting music videos on here any more as there seems to be little point.
As the mods don't seem to appreciate Polish Music.

That doesn't make any difference. I've tried a couple of times already and the video images still disappear after a few hours. Only the link text is left.

@Miloslaw

There's a decent jazz and blues club in wroclaw I've been to a few times. Mostly older crowd but still fun.
Miloslaw 6 | 2,046
4 Jun 2019  #228
I am "mostly older" Dirk, so I would probably enjoy it :-)

Do you remember what it's called or where it is?
Dirk diggler 9 | 4,491

It's called vertigo. It's across the corner from banana which is where I usually go. There's like 4 5 other clubs basically right next to each other there if you get bored with one.

Nice enough tune and I am a fan of French music.
But I am intrigued, what is the Polish connection Iron?

@Ironside

Wow!
Some amazing posts there!
I loved them all for diffferent reasons.
Funny how this forum is,I never had you down as a fan of music,but you obviously are.
But what is the point you are trying to make?
Is it that Popular Polish music is in some ways similar to Chansons Francaise?
Ironside 48 | 9,721

Some Polish music has the same vibe like some French music. Nothing more nothing less.

As someone who has very strong connections with both Poland and France, I would say that you are spot on.
Furthermore, your insight intrigues me, because you are the first poster on PF that has noticed this connection besides myself.
Poland and France of course have a very long, mutual, history.
And there is a massive Polonia in France,

youtu.be/BcKb5Wq6JC8

Because of this forums obsession with converting embeded videos to links,,I don't remember if I have posted these videos before, so my apologies if I have.

But I post these in reference to the thread about tower blocks and tenement blocks in Poland.
As I have said before, it is not about the people that live there, it is that I feel they deserve better.
These types of estates are probably worse in Western Europe, especially The UK and France.
But that is no reason for Polish politicians to turn a blind eye to the standard of housing offered to too many Poles.
My family and friends in Poland are lucky, they all live in houses.

youtu.be/6BnT_wkuMBA

One more, not really about the concrete jungles that too many Poles call home.
But just a reminder of the dark side of life in Poland.
Life in Poland is OK.
But there is no room for complacency, it could be much better.

I liked all your posts, but being a "Hard Rocker" at heart, I liked Nocny Kochanek the most.
Zegarek was very good too!
Poland Rocks!!!!
