    [QUOTE]Eduard Khil


    Eduard Anatolyevich Khil (Russian: Эдуард Анатольевич Хиль; born 4 September 1934, Smolensk, Western Oblast), sometimes referred as Edward Hill or Edward Khil,[1] is a Soviet-Russian baritone singer and a recipient of the People's Artist Award of the RSFSR.



    Life
    Eduard Khil was born on September 4, 1934 in Smolensk. In 1960 he graduated from the Leningrad Conservatory, where he studied under direction of Evgeni Olkhovksky and Zoya Lodyi. He began performing as a soloist. Khil currently lives at Tolstoy House (Толстовский дом) in St. Petersburg.

    He was the first artist to sing such songs as Woodcutters (Лесорубы in Russian) and Moon Stone (Лунный камень) by Arkady Ostrovsky, and [B]Song about Friend [/B](Песня о друге), Blue Cities (Голубые города), And People Go To the Sea (А люди уходят в море) by Andrey Petrov. Other popular songs performed by Khil included From [B]What the Homeland Begins?[/B] (С чего начинается Родина?), [B]How the Steamers Are Seen Off [/B](Как провожают пароходы), Winter (Зима), [B]Birch Sap [/B](Берёзовый сок), Alder Catkin (Серёжка ольховая), [B]We Need Only the Victory [/B](Нам нужна одна победа), and many others.
    [B]Someone sucks at translating.[/B] :D

    [B]How the steamers are seen off..LOL[/B]

    In 1977-1979, Khil taught solo singing at the Saint Petersburg State Theatre Arts Academy.

    After his singing career faded in the early 1990s, Khil reentered private life and worked in a cafe in Paris. Since 1997, Khil has been involved with his son in a joint project with the rock group Prepinaki.

    After retiring from a singing career, Khil slowly faded into obscurity in his later years. In 2010, Khil reclaimed the spotlight when he became the subject of the viral "Trololo" internet meme on YouTube, featuring a 1976 video of a vocalised version of the song, "I Am Glad I'm Finally Going Home" (Я очень рад, ведь я, наконец, возвращаюсь домой).[2]

    Family name
    The family name Khil is not derived from Hill. The singer stated in an interview that he probably has a Spanish ancestor with the surname Gil, which is pronounced similar to hill.[3]

    Internet meme
    In 2009, a 1976 video of Khil singing a vocalised version of the song I Am Glad To Finally Be Home (Я очень рад, ведь я, наконец, возвращаюсь домой) was uploaded to YouTube,[4] and quickly became an Internet meme[1] known as "Trololololololololololo" or "Trololo"[5], giving Khil the nickname "Mr. Trololo" or "Trololo Man"[5]. The song itself was written by Arkady Ostrovsky, and was also performed by Valery Obodzinsky[6][7] and by Muslim Magomayev on the Little Blue Light program in the Soviet Union.[8] The name "trololo" is an onomatopoeia of the distinctive way Khil vocalises throughout the song.

    It first appeared on some sites beginning on February 21, 2010,[9][10] and gained prominence on March 3 during a segment on The Colbert Report and was also parodied by actor Christoph Waltz on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.[11][12] The song has also been used as a bait and switch prank amongst YouTube users, with many users considering that the "trololo" meme may become the new Rick Roll, having re-emerged as "Communist Roll'd" in March 2010 [13].

    The "trololo" meme in turn re-ignited interest in Khil's singing career aside from his vocalised performance; the "trololo" website includes a petition for Khil to come out of retirement to perform on a world tour.

    I haven't heard anything about it. It's nice, of course! Thanks for good news!
    There is a backstory about this song. 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 naughty – it has no lyrics, so we had to make up something for people would listen to it, and so this was an interesting arrangement.

    —Eduard Khil, LIfe News (Russian)

    Khil's son was quoted as saying "He thinks maybe someone is trying to make a fool of him," and "He keeps asking, 'Where were all these journalists 40 years ago?'"[5]

    I'm guessing it's a Jedi mind trick so I'd drop the avatar and he could steal it.
