synth wave music...I just discovered this form or music recently
It's good and has been around since the 1960s.
it also sort of reminds me of a better time before true capitwlism in poland took over
Synthesizers were developed in the capitalist United States before going global.
I've read that the now deceased musician Prince (he died a few years ago from an accidental fentanyl overdose) was actually a fan of the work of the still active British musician Gary Numan who came to fame in the 1970s using synthesizers.
"what could have been" if we allied or really became united with Russia.
Nah. Too much bad blood.
The closest to anything like that was Congress Poland. That wasn't an alliance but it was a period lasting well over a century when a large swathe of Poland was effectively absorbed into Russia.
But Poles always prefer independence.
Have you heard about the 1863 January Uprising?
It is as inspiring as the 1944 Warsaw Uprising and the Solidarity movement of the 1980s.
