Eduard Khil verstarb heute morgen an den Folgen eines Schlaganfalls. Thanks for the Trolling, Eduard.

Russian baritone Eduard Khil, whose song went viral on the internet in 2010, died in a St. Petersburg hospital at the age of 77.

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.

'Mr. Trololo' Dies in St.Petersburg, Aged 77[update] Tribute der Russian Times: Goodbye, Mr. Trololo: Eduard Khil dies after stroke

Famed Soviet singer Eduard Khil, known to the world as Mr. Trololo has died in St. Petersburg after a stroke he endured in late May. The 77-year-old had been performing right up until recently.

The nickname of the late Soviet stage star and internet sensation has rocketed into the most popular worldwide trends on Twitter as music-lovers around the world mourn his death.

Khil will be buried on Thursday June 7 in St. Petersburg’s Smolensky cemetery, the singer's son Dmitry Khil says.

In 2010, the singer’s half-century-old hit brought Khil international attention by his vintage video to the wordless song I Am So Happy to Finally Be Back Home. As of now the original video has well over 12 million views on YouTube.

Eduard Khil was born in Smolensk in 1934. He started his music career in 1960 at the Leningrad Conservatory. He began performing in 1962 and very soon became extremely popular. In the late 1970s he commenced a lecturing career at the Leningrad Conservatory. He was later named an Honored Artist of the Russian Federation.

[update] Washington Post: "Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed his condolences to Khil’s wife and son."
