Mietek Szcześniak Przytul Mnie Mocno
"Przytul mnie mocno" ("Hold me tight") was the Polish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1999, performed in Polish by Mietek Szcześniak.
The song is a ballad, with Szcześniak asking his lover to "Hold me tight and turn the ice into snowflakes". He claims to be amazed that the two of them are together, but sings that they must remain so for as long as they can.
Prior to the 2000 contest, the decision was taken to restrict participation to the countries with the best average scores, a group which did not include Poland. As a "passive participant" (a country broadcasting but not participating in the Contest), however, Poland was re-admitted the following year. Thus, the song was succeeded as Polish representative at the 2001 contest by Piasek with "2 Long".
