Autumn Reflection by Elżbieta Adamiak.



Actually, just like the moon, people know only my autumn side

I like Polish ballads with a nostalgic message - exhibiting sentimental or wistful yearning for happiness.

That is really nice.

Does this mean that you are trying to tell us that we only know one side of you?

My parents, my birth day (Zodiac horoscope, Western and Chinese), God etc made me a person with multiple personalities. :):):):) One day I listen to heavy metal, next to sentimental music. Currently, I am in the mood for sentimental.

E.g.,

Autumn two crickets` concert

Chestnut trees are rustling

This is also very nice - Little Elf, about unexpected love and losing that love. All on example of little elf appearing from nowhere in the cold and wanting to stay for few moments...

Thanks but your input belongs to another thread:

I can recommend Katarzyna Groniec and Renata Przemyk, they are both very skilled singers, with charasteric voices and witty lyrics.
But when you hear them, you'll love them or desest them, i guess it's difficult to be somewhere in between ;)

You right, I didn't realize such thread exists - otherwise I would have posted it there :)

No problem! All these music threads share songs with each other.

I know these names, especially Przemyk, but to be honest, I haven`t heard any of their sentimental ballads which might be called attractive and pleasant to ear. Sorry, if you know some, tell us.

I much prefer Irena Santor from communist times.

You can't get much better than this as far as ballads.

Fantastic rock ballad: Peggy Brown by Myslovitz

And a much more peaceful ballad by the same group:

The Length of the sound of loneliness

One of my favourite songs. But this...is painful.



The pain, the pain!

One of my favourite songs.

Nicely translated lyrics.

The pain, the pain!

I am sorry, delph. It must get better one day, you just need to be strong.

Do YOU really like Myslovitz, a Polish band? YOU?

I'm knocked out.

Pierwszy siwy włos- Marta Mirska:

Wow, so old songs??? From 1956?

Hah, here is an even older one! From 1936! :):):) You can`t beat me!!! :):):):)

youtu.be/N-hg58QQmdc

The "Last Sunday" -- erroneously called "THAT Last Sunday" -- was composed by Jerzy Petersburski in 1936. It is a nostalgic tango with lyrics by Zenon Friedwald describing the final meeting of former lovers who are parting. The Polish title was "To Ostatnia Niedziela" ("The Last Sunday"). The song was extremely popular and was performed by numerous artists (best kown performance by Mieczysław Folg). Along the way, it first gained the nick-name of "Suicide Tango" due to its sad lyric (although, the real "suicie song" in the night restaurants of Eastern Europe (...)

So, as I planned, we are going to Bieszczady Mountains next week as the stormy spell will leave Poland at last.

I can`t wait. Today I am looking for info on Bieszczady sites, mounts and tracks and listening to these wonderful songs with fascinating pics of the Mountains.

A hit of the 1960s by Piotr Szczepanik- Burn Yellow Calendars

Come back to the Land of Dream
Where spring lasts forever
Burn yellow calendars


When I play this melody on my accordion today, my wife melts and does everything what I want.... :):):):)

The same singer in another ballad
To love - how easy to say
To love - means asking for nothing
Because love is unknown


Also, a nostalgic ride through Warsaw of 1960s:

Krywan

After getting two of my friends (a Welsh and an Irish) into some discussion about "white voice" and pentatonic scale I once risked demonstrating to them two versions of "Krywaniu". One was by Masniaki (nice landscape) and one by Goranie (below). I expected a lukewarm reception, but in fact they both really loved it.

Not the version you provided, that is just a terrible blend, you can't call that highlander music.

or this?

I like the Aston Tango, quite a lot
I am also a big fan of "W tę noc upalną" - Tango sung by Ordonówna:

There are no more deserted beaches where I used to collect amber by Irena Santor.



Little cafes by Irena Jarocka



Both songs are a few dozen years old.

A hit of the 1960s by Piotr Szczepanik- Burn Yellow Calendars

And Never again by Szczepanik, on Valentine`s Day to all women we love:
Never again look at me this way
Never again tell me you don`t love me
Never again poison your words with bitterness
Never again punish me with dead silence

Ahh.. I like the sound of that last one Paiwan, and I really like the post with 'Anna Szałapak', I truly enjoy tangoes. and of course on different music thread I mentioned my fangurl squeals for the more modern balladeers like Andrzej Piaseczny (heh,,I even remembr to spell his name by remembering Sexy-secksni).

Accordians are smexy for Polish? I will have to brush up!! I here I have been wooing him with guitar ballads!

No, you cannot go now
You're taking the last water from me
I'm burning like ember

Merciless, fawn emptiness
I have cracked, dry lips
My kiss is blood

No, you cannot go now
When I'm all hunger
For your eyes, hands of yours
Tell me, tell me that you are going to stay
Before you take my air away
Before I go in for a big nothing

No, you cannot go now
I'm a red-hot ice
I'll do anything, just be
Stay, stay a little while, a moment
I'm burning, I'm burning
With cold fire of black suns

No, you cannot go now
Look at the leaves so young
Before the autumn rust and death
Please be on the bridge of goodbyes
Do not kill this love
Let it die in peace

Please be on the bridge of goodbyes
Do not kill this love
Let it die in peace

Let it die in peace

Hanna Banaszak
My father's favourite song :)



There is a wind, which slits the nostrils of a man;
There is a wind like that.
There is a frost, which turns man's jaw into marble;
There is a frost like that.
To me you're not a thyme or a rose
Nor "a romantic moment under the moon" -
But the dark wind,
But the white frost.

The title of this poem is Upojenie, which means Ecstasy or Intoxication, both accurate I reckon
