Tune in Tuesday (16): Gogol Bordello

Well hello and welcome to yet another Tune in Tuesday.  This is a feature hosted by Ginger at GReads.  She’s a fantastical human being, so you should check out her blog and stuff.

About a year ago, my dad started listening to a band called Gogol Bordello. Sounds like the name of a mysterious drink, yeah? Then I started listening to their music. Gogol Bordello is what I would call Gypsy Rock with their crazy, upbeat, and after a few listens, you’ll be singing along. And possibly dancing.

Note: If some parts of their songs aren’t in English, but still fun to sing along to!

Suddenly (I Miss Carpatha)


I love the beginning of this song! It’s so creepy and… DUCK!

American Wedding


First of all, the video. Second of all, you’ve got a bunch of gypsy musicians crashing a wedding.

Start Wearing Purple


“All your sanity and wit, they will all vanish, I promise!” Says it all. You’re gonna go crazy. For this song.

Every song of theirs has this flavor of fun! I’ve listened to most of their albums, but the ones that get put on repeat in my house are Gypsy Punks and Super Taranta!. GB is just really fun to jam out to when you get out of work on friday or basically ANY TIME.

    Gypsy Rock is the perfect way to describe Gogol Bordello! I haven’t listened to them in ages, so it was nice to listen to these three songs! I think American Wedding is my favourite out of the three! :)

    Hi! Thanks for the visit to my blog! Sorry it took me so long to reply as I was knee deep in grading papers all week.

    Gogol Bordello sounds totally wacky! Thanks for sharing!
