I knew most of the performers mentioned with the exception of Nena and Falco or Faust and Ashra. When teenager I used to be a 'hippie' - long hair, flower-shirts and jeans. The hippie in Poland were not the same as in the free world. In the west the hippies contested the western society, and we wanted to bring the values they contested into Poland, to make it a liberal democracy. They wanted communes we wanted private property back. Isn't this world straneh? Also the Polish hippie were in local opposition to group call 'git ludzie' or 'gitmeni'. Thiose were the aggresive guys. They later transformed into punks or skin heads.
Well Tufta, it appears we have come along a long road from our beginnings when the world as we knew it, was understandable.
It is good to know how you guys were in those times. For it would so seem, young people are so resilient as to make best of what they have to work with. You guys had the Soviet occupation, we were better with the Americans and Brits. The French for the most part, left us alone.
I had learnt swing dancing whilst living with my Auntie and two female cosines from the big band swing music broadcast by Armed Forces Radio. We had a battery radio we set upon the window ledge to listion and dance by. It was fun, for other wise, we fought and argued over what ever.
I usually lost, for the eldest, was older the my self and stronger. It was just in moments of stress, we three were of one, and we looked after one another.
