Scatman John will always be Remembered
At his last concert. He fainted at the stage while show-closing scat duel against his drummer. Larking fainted and so people thought that this was part of the show. But then an announcement came during the end of the concert that the show must end due to a medical situation for him.
Larkin transported to the Cleveland Clinic in a hurry where he was stabilized. The following week he returned to his home in Los Angeles. Larkin remained positive even though he were not well, saying “Whatever God wants is fine by me … I’ve had the very best life. I have tasted beauty.” This singer was simply something. He was such an uplifting person that didn’t deserve to leave us so early at all. But he died silently at his home in Los Angeles, the USA on 3rd of December 1999 with his family surrounded.
Humongous International success
At age of 53 he became a worldwide star. He brought happiness for millions of people with scat illness. He made them fit into other peoples lives much easier. He will always be remembered for this. His “Scatman (Ski-Ba-Bop-Ba-Dop-Bop)” song that he is very famous for charted highly across Europe and Japan. This song remains Larkins biggest-selling under Scatman John artist name and also his most well-known song ever.
But while Scatman (Ski-Ba-Bop-Ba-Dop-Bop) became a humongous hit. He also made other songs such as this one named Let it Go. It is such a nice Eurodance song by him. Its as if he knew that his life was going to end soon. Let it Go came out in 1997 and is one of his most underrated Eurodance songs that we at Muuuzic wants the world to know about. He will always be remembered no matter what anyone says. He is a Eurodance legend that deserves to be known. He changed the world for the better!
