Steemit World Playlist - my Polish candidates

in music •  19 days ago

@soyrosa has proposed a new type of fun - assembling an international list of songs. I decided to suggest a couple candidates for Poland.

Now I know I'm not the best music expert and most of my favourite songs are more than twenty years old, but I trust @jozef230 can offer something more recent :)

I couldn't close this in one song only therefore here it is: my list of songs (and it will also include bread themed songs).

Sung poetry is something that seems to be a more common thing in central and eastern Europe. One of my favourite groups is Wolna Grupa Bukowina with their nostalgic songs, like this one about a baker - in real life he was the group's founder's friend who sadly took his own life.

A bit more modern poetry: Grzegorz Turnau and his "Naprawdę nie dzieje się nic":


If you're heading to Krakow for the SteemFest, you can visit his cafe "Nowa Prowincja" on Bracka Street.

Let's move on to some rock classics: 1975 and Budka Suflera, "Jest taki samotny dom":


They suspended their activity a while ago but it doesn't really matter to me. I still think their first album was the best one.

Something a bit more modern. Ironically, my favourite song is in English. Hey, the band, suspended their activity last year after 25 years of constant delivery of wonderful music. I went to a concert from their farewell tour and really, they played about two hours of hits.

Let's finish with a bit of a progressive rock of the sixties. Czesław Niemen, an iconic composer, combined Polish 18th century mourning poem with his wonderful music and created this beauty:

This moves us to songs that make me reflect a bit more. Punk rock band Pidżama Porno (Porn Pyjamas) sing about how wars hurt the ordinary boys pushed into a conflict and then how others forget about them in "Chłopcy idą na wojnę":


I value this band because while I do not agree with all they sing, the lyrics can be precise like surgical cuts, exposing what I really think is important.

Have I mentioned I liked old music? Here's a modern cover: Brodka "Wszystko czego dziś chcę":

I think this should be enough. Let me just finish with the same subject as at the start: bread. Karolina Czarnecka, the singer, is a very talented actress and singer. There's way too many projects she's involved in for me to list them, but this one is really close to my heart. The song is called "Chleb" (Bread):

So, what do you say, @soyrosa? Do you like any of these?

Why hello you bubbly beautiful thing!

What flour have you used?

I've been here all the time. It's just that Septembers aren't something I'm good at :(

I used the most common wheat flour called Weizenmehl Type550 in Germany. I also started one with rye flour this morning.

My unfavorite month is German November. Regularly it's dark, cold and rainy ... Good to stuck at home and bake breads :D

I think it's just because we return to the UK too late and then struggle to sort ourselves out.

Hope you have loads of fun with the starters :)

Thanks a lot for taking the time to share so many amazing songs in Polish Language! I love the 'poetry' although I can't understand the lyrics it's an interesting concept and indeed not widely available in Dutch.

I'm very intrigued by the band 'Hey', it's pleasant to listen to and I can imagine a concert visit of this band is an amazing experience.

"Chłopcy idą na wojnę" is super nice to listen to because I can hear the passion and rhythm very well and if you listen to the Lyrics and understand them they must be really powerful :-)

Oh, by the way, the last clip is the most 'interesting' where I find the second clip the most touching - very very beautiful. I didn't need to understand the lyrics to grasp the meaning :-)

Thank you again!

Interestingly, the second video is not official, it's a mix of a film, "Pora umierać" ("Time to die") and another music video, the time official, "Piejo kury piejo" ("Cluck the chickens") by Grzegorz Ciechowski:
