“Mr. Trololo,” Eduard Khil, Has Died

Devastating news: Internet legend Eduard Khil passed away yesterday in St. Petersburg from complications of a stroke he suffered in May. He was 77.

From Rianovosti:

Khil was born in Smolensk on September 4, 1934. He died Monday morning after irreversible damage from a stroke at the end of May.

Khil, a recipient of the People’s Artist Award in the Soviet Union, became famous in the West after his song of 50 years ago, I Am So Happy to Finally Be Back Home, which contains no words but only a melody of a series of “tro-lo-los,” hit the internet.

The Trololo song, according to Khil had originally featured lyrics describing a cowboy riding a horse to his farm; however, the Soviet Union rejected the lyrics because of the association with American lifestyle.
