Sounds of Sunday – Trolololo….

Aw, I don’t think I knew that Eduard Khil died. Ah well. His strange bit of music has lived on anyway, weirdly delightful and hilarious. Said he about the song once learning of his new-found fame as meme,

Originally, we had lyrics written for this song but they were poor. I mean, they were good, but we couldn’t publish them at that time. They contained words like these: “I’m riding my stallion on a prairie, so-and-so mustang, and my beloved Mary is thousand miles away knitting a stocking for me”. Of course, we failed to publish it at that time, and we, Arkady Ostrovsky and I, decided to make it a vocalisation. But the essence remained in the title. The song is very playful – it has no lyrics, so we had to make up something for people would listen to it, and so this was an interesting arrangement.

Definitely a mood booster for anyone in need of one. I don’t recommend the video where someone’s gone and looped it for 12 hours, but the modified “without autotune” version is entirely gutbusting.
