EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2019: POLAND – ‘Fire Of Love’ by Tulia

Eurovision 2019 – Poland

by Christopher Smith

The Polish song is called “Fire Of Love and is performed by Tulia.


Tulia are a Polish folk music group. The band was formed in 2017, in Szczecin. There are four singers in the band: Joanna Sinkiewicz, Dominika Siepka, Patrycja Nowicka and Tulia Biczak, whose name was chosen as the name of the band.

On 15th February 2019, it was announced that Tulia had been chosen by Polish state TV broadcaster TVP to represent Poland in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 with “Pali się” (“Fire Of Love”).

The song is written by Sonia Krasny, Allan Rich and Jud Friedmann.




I absolutely love the opening of this song! It’s very tatu. The girls sing this upbeat folky-pop number in unison and without too many breaks from beginning to end. It’s both atmospheric and very traditional, and unlike most of this year’s entries.


I would like to see this qualify simply because it’s so fresh and individual, but I fear if it does reach the grand final, it won’t be a vote winner.


“Fire, fire, fire of love

Sitting on an iceberg
Waiting for the sun
Hoping to be rescued
Cold and alone
Jedna mała iskra staje się płomieniem
Unoszonym wiatrem wiosennych pór

Pali się, pali się, miłosny ogień
Płonie w nas, płonie w nas, jak suchy las
Kochaj mniel, kochaj mniel, mocniej i mocniej
Na nic tu, na nic tu, ogniowa straż

Samotnemu sercu które tylko wątpi
Bo nieprzytulane zmarzło na lód
Promień obietnicy taki lód roztopi
Wyjdzie jak z niewoli kochania głod

Pali się, pali się, miłosny ogień
Płonie w nas, płonie w nas, jak suchy las
Kochaj mniel, kochaj mniel, mocniej i mocniej
Na nic tu, na nic tu, ogniowa straż

Porzucone serce które nic nie czuje
Światu obojętne, twarde jak głaz
Ale gdy przyspieszy, samo się rozkuje
Doda oczom blasku, nadrobi czas

Pali się, pali się, miłosny ogień
Płonie w nas, płonie w nas, jak suchy las
Kochaj mniel, kochaj mniel, mocniej i mocniej
Na nic tu, na nic tu, ogniowa straż

Fire, fire, fire of love
Burns in you, burns in me
Burns us alive
Love me now, love me now
Harder and harder
Take me there, be the air I need to survive”

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
