If I Have to Hear This “Chocolate Rain” Song Once More Time…

Honestly, that song freaks me out. I don’t know if it’s the awkwardly deep “Darth Vader” voice, the way that the piano beat sounds like it came out from a horror movie’s soundtrack, or that Tay Zonday looks like Michael Jackson during his “Thriller” era. Lyrically, it’s a great song for discussion as it looks at racism, class issues and poverty along with other issues of inequality. But damn, the beat sucks and unfortunately most people won’t get the point, because well, most people just won’t.

Although, John Mayer’s version is kinda cute (but, I do hope that he gets it or has gotten the chance to view the lyrics!):
