Karolinka

State-sponsored stylized Communist-era folk music. Yes, they are in a mine.

Rock & Rolling Love

Today's Polish Song of the Day is from the Viva Polish content charts as well.

I don't know much about this group except that I think they have a sense of humor and I'm not fond of the name. This is a long form video that actually has 2 songs in it. The first one is by the "Reds." It is supposed to be an example of bad communist-era Polish pop. And, of course, the second song (at 3:30) is by Afromental and supposed to be wonderful. Personally, I think the second song isn't all that much better than the first one. I think they are making fun of themselves in the first song. Despite winning awards, I don't think critics have been kind to Afromental.

That being said, I think this is a funny and enjoyable video. It's what passes for Pop music in Poland this month.

The MC tells a really bad joke in between the bands.

"Q: What is red and bad for the teeth?
A: A brick!!"

Body And Soul

I decided to look at the Polish content charts at Viva for today's Polish Song of the Day.

C-Bool an old school Polish DJ (If my memory serves correctly, his style was house) with a good international rep. I don't know much about this song but I do know that that I like it.

Love Shack

And now something accessible and current. A cover of the B-52s "Love Shack" by the Polish thrash metal band Acid Drinkers . They have been around since the late 1980s. This year they released Acid "Fishdick Zwei - The Dick Is Rising Again" which is full of covers of well-known rock songs including "Love Shack". This album is a follow-up to the 90s effort "Fishdick" hence Fishdick Zwei.

Ania Brachaczek is not a member of the Acid Drinkers.

Generacja nic (Generation Nothing)

Cool Kids of Death - Generacja nic.



English Translation (quick and dirty):

The light is not in you
Went off like bad dreams
Modern man
It's definitely not you
The light is not in me
Went dark sometime
Modern man
It's definitely not me
I know that together we can achieve a lot
Who has more is right?
And we can create a new generation

Generation Nothing
Generation No
Generation No One
Generation Bad
It can not succeed
It ends
Generation Nothing
Generation No

The light is already not in us
Went dark sometime
The movement is no longer in the eye
This is urban guerrilla warfare
Take everything out of the house
Burn the Bed
break down the door
Build a barricade
Defend yourself to the last drop of blood
The light already is not in us
Burned out

Polish Lyrics:

Światła nie ma w tobie
Zgasło jak złe sny
Nowoczesny człowiek
To na pewno nie Ty
Swiatła nie ma we mnie
Zgasło kiedyś tam
Nowoczesny człowiek
To na pewno nie ja
Wiem że razem można wiele
Kto ma więcej ten ma rację
A my stwórzmy całkiem nową generację

Generacja nic
Generacja nie
Generacja nikt
Generacja źle
To nie może się udać
To się kończy śle
Generacja nic
Generacja nie

Światła już w nas nie ma
Zgasło kiedyś tam
Nie rzucamy się już w oczy
To jest miejska partyzantka
WynieÅ› z domu wszystko
Podpal łóżko
wyważ drzwi
Zbuduj sobie barykadÄ™
Broń się do ostatniej krwi
Światła już w nas nie ma
Wypaliło się

Generacja nic
Generacja nie

Generacja nic
Generacja nie
Generacja nikt
Generacja źle
To nie może się udać
To się kończy śle
Generacja nic
Generacja nie

Minus Zero

Talking to (e:tinypliny) about my Polish experience, made me in a fit of Polish madness think that I should do a "Polish Song of the Day" on E-strip even though Warsaw isn't exactly on the Elmwood Strip.

This song is by Lady Pank . The video is directed by Zbigniew Rybczyński

This video references many Polish and American stereotypes both in Poland and in the U.S.

The video was filmed on Battery Park City landfill in lower Manhattan in 1985.



(The English language lyrics have very little to do with the Polish language lyrics). Less Than Zero would be a better translation of the original song title.

Lyrics:

Ula models for top magazines
See her smile in her pink limousine
Queen of lipstick, shampoo and suncreams,
She's the fun of every man's dreams
She thinks she's ooh-la-la,
But she's just la-de-da

Minus zero

Flies to Rio when Rio is sunny
Never sweats,'cause she stands in the shade
She's a honey, and brings in the money
Works for pleasure, but always gets paid
She oozes sex appeal,
But she just isn't real

Minus zero

Ula models for top magazines
See her smile in her pink limousine
Queen of lipstick, shampoo and suncreams,
She's the fun of every man's dreams
She thinks she's ooh-la-la,
But she's just la-de-da

Minus zero
