Tune Tuesday

You know those funny songs you listen too when you are in this incredible mood. Gogol Bordello is a Gypsy punk band from the lower east side of New York. They travel all around the world and you can go HERE for upcoming concerts. Gogol Bordello isn't the main singers name, that's Eugene Hutz, it's the bands name derived from a Russian writer and Bordello which means gentleman's club. Eugene was born in Ukraine and sometimes is a DJ. My favorite song is "Wonderlust king" the video is below!!


Back in the day yo as we learned
A man was not considered to be
Considered to be fully grown
Has he not gona beyond the hills
Has he not crossed the 7 seas
Yeah, 7 seas at least!

Now all them jokers kept around
Just like the scarecrows in hometown
Yeah, scarecrows in hometown
From screen to screen they're travelin'
But I'm a wonderlust king

I stay on the run
Let me out
Let me be gone
In the world's beat up road sign
I saw new history of time...
New history of time!!!

Through Siberian woods
Breaking up their neck

Chinese moving in building discoteques

Homemade sex toys and whatnot
Yeah, and why not?
Well at least it's something different
From what they got in every other airport

Ja ne evrei, no koje-chto pohozge
sovrat ne dast ni Yura ni Seryozga!
Simple because I'm not a total gadjo
Da ja shut, ja tziratch, nu tak stozge?

I traveled the world
Looking for understanding
Of the times that we live in
Hunting and gathering first hand information
Challenging definitions of sin

I traveled the world
Looking for lovers
Of the ultimate beauty
But never settled in
I'm Wonderlust King!

And presidents
And billionaires
And generals
They'll never know
What I have owned!
What I have owned...
I'm a wonderlust king!

  1. AAAAAGGH!!! I got so excited when i logged on and saw this on your blog! These guys are awesome! I was first introduced to them by my ex, and have loved them ever since.Eugene is really eccentric and entertaining. He does some interesting side projects too. Awesome choice! You'd probably like 'Emir Kusterica and The No Smoking Orchestra' too. They have a similar gypsy punk style... kinda silly, but awesome!
