This is a great story see below, it shows the power of the internet. When i first heard TZ's song, I was a bit put off by the repetitive beat, but it forced me to listen to the lyrics, which are damn powerful. "Chocolate Rain,every February washed away.." "...history crashing thru your veins"
One cant help but notice the comments of the most likely white youth in the comments section as well as the one who wrote the post below. They cant seem to deal with his lyrics, ( which is ironically the reason racists posted it in the first place),so most of the comments are ridiculing, insulting and debasing him or talking about how he looks,etc. nevertheless the clips 17,000,000 HITS! simply amazing, and he was smart enough to offer it as a downloadable mp3. with that many hits, you may already have seen it, but just in case you didn't, here it is. i post it because its a great song...musicians -take note!
Tay's song Chocolate Rain �
You'll Never be as Lucky as Tay Zonday
Once upon a time, there was an unknown composer and musician named Tay Zonday . Tay had a remarkable voice but lackluster writing skills. Nevertheless, he published videos on Youtube, showing the world his works. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), one of his videos fell into the hands of a bunch of racist hyperactive lunatics. You may know them better as 4chan or /b/. With the intent of mocking and humiliating him, /b/ inadvertently drove Tay's song Chocolate Rain � to the top of Youtube's "most watched" list and then others started watching. Suddenly, Chocolate Rain had hundreds of thousands of views. Currently, it has over 11 million. Several interviews, TV appearances, and a few months later, Tay is back with a new song and a deal with Dr. Pepper. That's right, Tay has gone professional and I can't seem to embed the video. Regardless, here's Tay's new video: Cherry Chocolate Rain. Just goes to show you that if you catch the right person's attention, you might just make it big.
