Polish disco-polo music makes comeback in Poland

Disco-polo has left the rural firehouse and entered big-city salons, writes Gazeta Wyborcza. Once reviled and ridiculed by urban snobs, it has turned out to be the favourite of broad sections of society and a big money-maker to boot..

Many of us remember the early 90s and Sunday mornings from polsatowskimi programs " Disco Relax" and " Disco Polo Live" . Enjoyed considerable popularity . Another thing that there was no such a wide selection of music television as it is today .

Then disco music (including and disco polo ) disappeared from the mainstream. You could hear it in the rural fire stations , at weddings or in specific clubs. Listen to disco was a symbol of embarrassment and lack of any musical taste . Today looks completely different . According to a survey by TNS Poland in 2011 that Poles prefer to reach for pop and disco in this statement is honorable second place.

This is news...? It's been known for years that Warszawiaks are the biggest disco polo listeners in the country. Any wasik driving a nice car will have it blasting on the stereo :)

That may be, but when interviewed they pour disdain and scorn upon it.

you guys know that I like Poland but disco-polo is terrible, just as bad as rap, hip hop and techno IMO.

In general I fully agree! Maybe except at weddings after everyone's got a few drinks under their belt, disco-polo may seem a natural.

As for Varsovians and disco polo, either:
it reminds them of the village they're from; or
They're pretending to like it because it's 'cool' for hipsters to be ironic; or
They have no taste (there's not exactly a shortage of people here who are lacking in taste).

Maybe the wannabe snobs are basically decent salt-of-the-earth types, brainwashed by others into believing that glittery big-city snootiness, arrogance and looking down on others are somehow 'cool' and 'trendy'.

'Slat of the earth' is what Jesus called the decent common folk, unlike the hypocritcal Pharisees and other cityslickers and pseudo-humans.

'Slat of the earth'

Yes, of course he did.

I totally forget that a few books written about 200 years after the mortal bearded one, (unlike his father who's actually the same person {yea, right} - the immortal bearded one) had died had direst quotes from the the man himself. He 100% said everything that he's reported to have said in that book.

Yes.
True.
Definitely.
Prawda.

So the Four Evangelists lived to be close to 250 and still have enough energy to write books? Interesting!

well, look around you, Karl Marx is obviously still alive and kicking, so I guess, anything's possible (LOL)

Only John was very late. Though a minority of scholars believe him to be early, and his stuff about the word made flesh predates the historical Jesus anyway.

BTW, There were far more than four evangelists. The four you get in the current version of your holy book is what all the disparate and argumentative beardies could finally agree offended the fewest of them at the Council of Nicea in (I think) CE 324.

How this fits with provincial '90s karaoke music is anyone's guess...

Dico polo may not be the epitome of good tatse but it's a hell of a lot more tasteful and entertaining than than the monotonous, monosyllabic grunts of slum-rooted rap crap!

OK, if I was forced to listen to any of it at gunpoint, I'd pick disco polo too.

I 'm not gonna tell Poles what's good for them. I don't know what PIS stands for but as long as they oppose globalism (one country, one gov, one everything) and don't tell people when to eat, sleep and sh/t, I'm fine with it.

Ah do, let them know , but, if the yahoos like listening to that plastic music, so be it.
