RIP Eduard Khil

For those who aren't familiar with his work, Eduard Khil was a Russian singer. Khil became known to a western audience in 2010 when a 1976 recording of him singing a non-lexical vocable version of the song "I Am Glad, 'Cause I'm Finally Returning Back Home" became an Internet meme, known as "Trololo".  The video is embedded below. I hope it brings a smile to your face, as it did mine. Mr. Khil passed away June 4, 2012.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.


I'm actually really sad about this! Prayers for the repose of his soul and all those who mourn him.
