Polish diva: “I know a street in Barcelona”

Uliczka w Barcelonie, by the great Sława Przybylska, who has no English-language Wikipedia entry, and who I first got to know during a dissolute spell in a village near Breslau, or whatever it’s called these days. I have no idea who sang the original or who wrote it–I’m guessing it wasn’t a Pole, since foreign travel wasn’t greatly encouraged at the time. Here she is in Italy in a rather better known hit, Ciao, ciao, bambina:

Przybylska also sang about Alabama. I hope no one made her go there.
