The Long Goodbye: Part 21

We are now three-quarters of the way through our Grand Tour of all EU countries and we find ourselves in Poland, the country responsible for over 80% of the world's usage of the letter Z. 

I've been lucky enough to visit a number of times, taking in the delights of Sopot on the Baltic coast, Przemysl near the border with Ukraine and various places in between. All of them were thoroughly groovy, as are today's tunes.

"Jedziemy Autostopem" - Karin Stanek & Czerwono Czarni

"Czasem kochać chcesz" - Skaldowie

"Kto Wymyślił Naszą Miłość" - Anna Jantar

"(Żywiec) Mountain Melody" - SBB

"Maw Ja Raz Dziywczynońku" - Rusyczi

We'll kick the videos off with a band I was lucky enough to see live in 2011 in the splendour of the Palace of Culture in Warsaw - the mighty Red Guitars. 


  1. Glad to see a Z featuring in all your offerings

  2. The Palace of Culture is an awesome building!

  3. Tremendous track from Mira Kubasinska, there's not enough flute solos in popular music! I think I've found a 12 minute track of theirs to play
