Eduard Khil a.k.a. Trololo Man

Eduard Khil has become the latest viral obsession via YouTube, thanks to his 1976 melody that has no words as a result of Soviet censorship. Originally written in 1966 with lyrics about an American cowboy, at the height of the Cold War, he and his composer knew the highly restrictive government would never allow them to sing it. Instead, they decided to ditch words, and have Khil simply sing the melody. The wordless tune has been heard by millions, some 40 years later.
