lol...he seemed really old back when the song was a hit...
I worked in radio in the 1990s. Out of all of the artists/celebrities I've met in my lifetime, Scatman John was by far the nicest, most humble and most genuine. The guy's success was unexpected and happened almost overnight... to be on a stage in front of thousands with a worldwide hit was mind-blowing to him. I was saddened to learn of his passing.

Will lightning strike twice for Lou?
"Tricky Tricky" was a decent enough attempt, but when your first song is #1 all over the world like Mambo No.5 was, there's no way you can outdo yourself.

There's a track on Lou's "A Little Bit Of..." CD called "Ice Cream" that I still like to play at pool parties and events with a tropical vibe. It's a fun one.

Actually, IMHO, that whole album is pretty good. Sounds a little repetitious but still good.

I played it a bit last decade .. not sure I have in the past 10 years.
I still get quite a few requests for it they either hate it or love in no in between

Scatman/Hatman isn't being requested but it is definitely less innocuous as most current "hits."

I'll report if I play it and get a reaction worthy of mention.
