"War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend."
First track is popular right now, call me a hole, NIN-Jepsen mashup. The rest of them used to be, sounds like the same key to me.
gracing the picture on the left: Wisława Szymborska - "the Greta Garbo and the Mozart of Poetry". Nobel Laureate in Literature. And a beautiful modest person with it.

Some of the ladies not mentioned in the tags: Edyta Geppert, Han-ka Or-do-nów-na, Ewa Demarczyk, Renata Przemyk, An-na Jan-tar i inne.
a tribute to the best Polish female singers. And yes, let me have you know: Maria Skłodowska was Polish - only because she married a French git by the name of Curie, doesn't make her French :) 2011 was a year dedicated to her, so I'm a wee bit late with my mix. Please forgive.
We´re in 12th century Beuern. If you´re in your thirties, you´re already considered lucky to have lived to a ripe old age. We´re sitting in a tavern, in an inn, stooped over a beer stein. Death comes swift in this world. Wars, epidemics. You learn to enjoy life and all the earthly pleasures. Forget Paris and fin du siecle. MEDIAEVAL TIMES - THAT WAS THE AGE OF REAL DECADENCE! I give you the entire work by Orff with English translations of the Latin and Middle High German lyrics.
