I've asked myself this question: "What are the most popular Polish songs which can help understanding Polish culture?" when I decided I need to record an episode of my podcast about Polish music.
Previously I recorded one on Disco Polo but it was more like a satire because I think everyone treats Disco Polo more like a joke.
This time it was supposed to show you Polish soul through old songs which were so darn good, generations after generations listened to them and memorized the lyrics.
I chose 5 amazing Polish rock songs and told their story in the newest episode of Polski Daily podcast. Some of them were politically engaged, some just told a story of Polish reality in 80's. I enjoyed recording this episode and analyzing the lyrics because I have a huge sentiment for these songs.
Listen to the episode here: www.polskidaily.eu/pd049 . You can also download a PDF with lyrics of these 5 Polish rock songs with some additional explanation I added so you understand the allusions.
If you enjoy the episode, let me know in the comment.
Pozdrawiam ciepło <3
