Scatman

Hei prieteni!


Mi-am amintit recent de Scatman John. Povestea lui mi-a atins inima de adolescent bătrân. El și-a transformat defectul, bâlbâitul, în atu-ul care l-a făcut faimos. Cântecul lui, Scatman John, m-a atins de când eram mic, prin muzicalitate. Mă ducea undeva departe. Recent am citit articolul de pe Wikipedia, și m-au atins niște lucruri care le-am citit despre el, și anume:

When fellow musician and friend Joe Farrell, who also had a drug problem, died of bone cancer in 1986, Larkin decided to beat his habits. He eventually did so, largely with the help of his new wife Judy, also a recovering alcoholic. “You have talent,” she told him. “I’m going to make something out of you.”

Adică nevastă-sa l-a iubit și l-a ajutat să facă ceva cu viața lui.

Apoi:
He was later diagnosed with lung cancer and soon went into intensive treatment. Even while suffering, Larkin remained positive saying “Whatever God wants is fine by me… I’ve had the very best life. I have tasted beauty”.[7] He died in his Los Angeles home [...]
Uuuuuuuf! I love this guy!



Iată și versurile pentru Scatman John:

(Scatting by Scatman John)
I'm the Scatman
(Scatting by Scatman John)
I'm the Scatman
(Scatting by Scatman John)
Everybody stutters one way or the other
So check out my message to you.
As a matter of fact don't let nothin' hold you back.
If the Scatman can do it so can you.
Everybody's sayin' that the Scatman stutters
But doesn't ever stutter when he sings.
But what you don't know I'm gonna tell you right now
That the stutter and the scat is the same thing.
Yo I'm the Scatman.
Where's the Scatman ? I'm the Scatman.
Why should we be pleasin' all the politician heathens
Who would try to change the seasons if they could?
The state of the condition insults my intuitions
And it only makes me crazy and my heart like wood.
Everybody stutters one way or the other
So check out my message to you.
As a matter of fact don't let nothin' hold you back.
If the Scatman can do it brother so can you.
I'm the Scatman.

I hear you all ask 'bout the meaning of scat.
Well I'm the professor and all I can tell you is
While you're still sleepin' the saints are still weepin' cause
Things you call dead haven't yet had the chance to be born.
I'm the Scatman.
(Scatting by Scatman John)
I'm the Scatman....repeat after me
It's a scoobie oobie doobie scoobie doobie melody
I'm the Scatman....repeat after me
It's a scoobie oobie doobie scoobie doobie melody

Adică zice că toată lumea se bâlbâie într-un fel sau altul, dar dacă el poate, înseamnă că și eu pot! Ce mesaj plin de speranță și pozitivitate. Apoi zice că lucrurile care tu le numești moarte încă n-au avut o șansă să se nască. Adică putem face atâtea lucruri, dar ne imaginăm că nu putem. Ioi mulțumesc pentru mesaj, Scatman!
