Szalona? Ever heard it?

Today TV Puls had a programmeabout Boys Marcina (I had never heard of them) but watched 'jednym okiem' while getting dressed for chruch. Anyway, the attratcive presentress said everyone is calling disco polo 'obciach' and saying they don't listen to it, but it turns out that at parties or weddings most everybody knows the words. Her verdict: Poles are snobs and hypocrites to boot. She asked people on the street what their favourite Boys hit was and most said without hesitation 'Szalona'. What's so good abut it?

Why? It is happy music, bouncy, melodic, easy to sing and dance to. and a hell of an improvement over the monotonous grunts of rap-crap. And disco's got a big following even though the first-generation 'miastowi' (wtih straw still protruding from their shoes) look down on it as too rural or plebian.

very popular song and once you hear it, it sticks in your brain, literally.
As for Disco Polo, there is a fairly big market in Poland for it even though it has been tarnished with being "tasteless".

This is all convention or umow: 'jeden przez drugiego' (go with thel flow). Is rap crap all that tasteful?
