Today’s B3ta Newsletter mentioned “Chocolate Rain” by way of flogging a parody version. Fearing that we’d missed something so awesome it had already spawned parodies, we went straight to YouTube for the search:

Best comment: snapric (11 minutes ago) what’s the name of this song?

From Tay Zonday’s YouTube page:

Yes, I have a deep voice. No, I don’t fake it. Yes, I look young. I am 25 years old. I have never studied piano or voice formally. Several of my videos have free MP3s and/or sheet music that you can download in the video details!

He’s taken a stab at going viral before, but this might be a winner. Tay, if you really want to blow up, you might want to cover youmakemetouchyourhandsforstupidreasons (via).

Update: When we posted this, the version of the parody linked to was down, but it looks like it’s back.

  1. good speed on the uptake. I think this bad boy hit 4chan.org on Wednesday. It’s so damn godawful. I wonder which is worse, the midi piano or the terrible voice…or maybe the lyrics. good god.

    rickroll, we need you back!

    About 4:51 too long.

  3. This is song is still better than anything LIARS or The Rapture have ever done.

    By the way, I bet we get a MSTRKRFT remix in two weeks.

    This is the best song of the year. Pazz and Jop done and dusted.

    I woke up in the middle of the night with Chocolate Rain in my head. I now know what it must feel like to be mentally ill.

    This next one of his has to be seen to be believed. It is amazing…
