They’re basically the same song. Same chord changes, at least.
While in London, I heard a really great busking duo with an accordion and a guy on drums outside the Tate Modern and overlooking the Thames. They played and sang a couple Gogol Bordello covers, followed by a really great song I couldn’t place. I did make a video recording of it, though, with the visual being the sidewalk. I scoured every Gogol Bordello song and googled all snippets of lyrics I could makeout. No luck.
I posted the video to YouTube and then told the story on Reddit’s Tip of my Tongue. (I’ve also included it below) about a week later someone replied with the answer. I rather think the busker’s version is better. Hear for yourself:
I rather think it must have been a big song, the way all those hot chicks were singing along.
