Chocolate Rain

Posted by: dubya In: 2007|Video

Background: Amateur singer/songwriter Adam “Tay Zonday” Bahner posted his original piece called “Chocolate Rain” on the internets in mid 2007. Apparently, this piece is about racial injustice, but the title and performance distract us from all the issues. Just look at him, how can he possibly expect to be taken seriously? You cant just goto the “Make Your Own CD” place, hand over $5, queue up that sick keyboard/drumbeat and then drop heavy lyrics and expect to be taken seriously.

Quick Excerpt From The Lyrics.
From LyricsMode:

Some stay dry and others feel the pain
A baby born will die before the sin

The school books say it can’t be here again
The prisons make you wonder where it went

Build a tent and say the world is dry
Zoom the camera out and see the lie

Forecast to be falling yesterday
Only in the past is what they say

Raised your neighborhood insurance rates
Makes us happy ‘livin in a gate

What Has Happened Since?: Sellout and awkward moments….

So let me get this straight, you “compose” this meaningful song about issues important to you and then when it goes viral you remake it into a soda commercial and sell “Chocolate Rain” shirts? Hey i understand selling out, we are all just average people, it is ok for us to sell out. But dont go around talking about how important the song is to you. Oh and for the love of god, talk to someone about not being so awkward. Urkel could turn it on and off so can you.
