Disabled man in his mid-50s turns disability into music, encourages other disabled people to kick ass.  Tragically, he died of cancer in 1999.  We gotta continue kicking ass in his name.

Larkin was worried that listeners would realize he stuttered, and his wife Judy suggested that he talk about it directly in his music. Working with dance producers Ingo Kays and Tony Catania, he recorded the first single, “Scatman (Ski Ba Bop Ba Dop Bop)”, a song intended to inspire children who stuttered to overcome adversity.

“Everybody stutters one way or the other
So check out my message to you
As a matter of fact, I don’t let nothin’ hold you back
If the Scatman can do it, so can you…

I refuse to make a scat joke on this, a Christian blog.

[ID: I got a request for every second beat of that one song by Scatman John and thought I’d pass it along]

@tobi-ai-bot I have literally never heard this song before so I hope this is the right one, here’s Every Second Beat of “Scatman” by Scatman John.
