Wsiąść do pociągu byle jakiego
Maryla Rodowicz
Maryla Rodowicz, born Maria Antonina Rodowicz, on 8 December, 1945 in Zielona Góram, is a Polish singer.   Her musical career took off in
1967 after having won first prize at the Krakow  " Festiwal Piosenki i Piosenkarzy Studenckich" (The Student Songs and Singers' Festival).
Two years later she recorded "Mowily mu" (The girls told him) and an English version known as "Love Doesn't Grow on Trees), both receiving
wide appeal by audiences.   Her popularity grew with the release of another song, Malgoska, the lyrics written by Agnieszka Osiecka.  A year
later, she sang the "Futbol" at the opening ceremonies of the World Cup.

Rodowicz has accumulated a repertoire of over 600 recorded songs, and over 20 Polish albums as well as albums in English, Czech, German,
and Russian.  

Among her most famous songs, are Małgośka", "Niech żyje bal" ("Long live the ball"), "To już było" ("Done that"), "Wielka Woda ("Great
water"), "Rozmowa przez ocean" ("Talk over the ocean"), "Bossanova do poduszki" ("Bedside bossanova"), "Łatwopalni" and
("Inflammables").  Her albums have produced hits such as "Wszyscy chcą kochać" ("Everybody wants to love") and "Będzie co ma być" ("What
is to be, will be"). In 2005 she recorded an album entitled, "Kochać" ("To love") with lyrics written by Katarzyna Nosowska. For the occasion of
the World Cup 2006, she recorded "Za Janasa" ("For Janas") with Nosowska's lyrics.

Rodowicz has performed in concerts around the world -in Europe, America, Australia, and Asia and has won awards along the way.   She has
also participated in festivals in Oklahoma City, Los Angeles, and Tulsa, as well as in Cracow and the Krajowy Festiwal Piosenki Polskiej (The
National Polish Song Festival) in Opole.

Polska Madonna, written by Agnieszka Osiecka received wide acclaim. It tells a moving story of an average Polish woman trying to make ends
meet, containing clear elements of Catholic symbolism with references to Polish society at the end of the communist regime. The most
touching lyrics question whether the "Polish Madonna" has enough money to pay for the rent, and promises that her child will receive the
much needed welcome allowance to attend kindergarten.  The old communist promises never materialize,  as she dreams of buying a lipstick
"made in France".  The song won the Journalists prize at the 1987 Opole festival.

Rodowicz continues to perform her music and has acted in several movies. She is a  regular cast member of  Rodzina zastepcza (Foster
Family) a Polsat TV channel series.  In 1992  her autobiography was published, entitled Niech żyje bal.(Long Live the Ball)
