Before and After Johns death many artists were keep to incoporate the Scatman sound into their own musical stylings. There were remixes, parodies and homages to the song "Scatman". Below are a few miscellaneous pieces to add to the Scatman discography.

Released in 2003 after Johns death this was a hard dance mix using samples of the original "Scatman (Ski Ba Bop Ba Dop Bop) single.


This is a really rare CD, most times the track can only be found on compilation CDs.


ScatgirlEdit

Scatgirl - Scatgirl's Rave

Scatgirl - Scatgirl's House

Scatgirl - Scatgirl's Reggae


This was a Parody single of the song "Scatman (Ski Ba Bop Ba Dop Bop)" wittily changed to "Scatgirl". The tune is pretty close to the original and the lyrics seem to focus on women are better than men that trying to be inspirational.


Gemini - ScatmanEdit

Scatman - Edit Spanish Radio

Scatman - Edit Bilingual Radio

Scatman - Caiman Club Mix

Scatman - Caiman Dub Mix

Scatman - Pop Bass Mix


This was a spanish cover of the song "Scatman (Ski Ba Bop Ba Dop Bop)". It was sung in spanish and english and has a more latin flavor to it, It's a pretty good version.

Pech - Blinded By The LightEdit

Blinded By The Light - Scatman Remix

Blinded By The Light - Apollo Mission Mix by Marc W

Blinded By The Light - Wicked Dub By Merlyn


Not too sure about the background of this song. Track 2 was a Scatman remix although how much involvement he had in it I don't know. Pech consisted of Tony Catania and Ingo Kays so it's possible they used the Scatman name to bump interest in the single...but I don't know.


Army Of Lovers - Life Is FantasticEdit

Life is Fantastic - Scatman John Radio Version
Life

Single Cover

Life Is Fantastic - Original Mix

Life Is Fantastic - Scatman John Long Version Remix

Life Is Fantastic - The Plastic Fantastic H-Muzik Mix


As with the Pech single I'm not too sure about the origins of this, or how much involvement John had with production on this track. The version I own has a big red sticker on the cover proclaiming a Scatman John remix, so it must have come out after the success of "Scatman (Ski Ba Bop Ba Dop Bop)".


Major League 3 : Back To The Minors SoundtrackEdit

Steal The Base
Major

Album Cover


This was an original Scatman song, not found on any studio album, for the film "Major League 3 : Back To The Minors". It was a baseball themed song and was pretty fun. This was released in 1998 and was rumored to be released as a single, this never happened though.


The film used the song "Mambo Jambo" from the "Scatman's World" album too but this was not included on the soundrack.


Queen Dance Traxx 1Edit

The Invisible Man
Queen

Album cover

We Are The Champions


This was a tribute album to the rock band Queen as performed by the top dance artists of the 90s. As you can see on the cover Scatman John is at the top of the sleeve, he was also the second track on the album. "The Invisible Man" was the same version that was included on the "Everybody Jam!" album.


The closing track "We Are The Champions" was by "Acts United" but it's rather telling to Johns popularity that he is the most prominent on the track. He gives a very heartfelt performance of the song and still manages to include some of his trademark scat singing.


Mark Oh - ScatmanEdit

Scatman - Radio Short Mix

Scatman - Club Mix


Unofficial Remixes/Remixes not on CD


Scatman - Major Tosh Remix

Scatman - SMP Remix


At the end of 2009 European DJ Mark Oh picked the song "Scatman (Ski Ba Bop Ba Dop Bop)" to remix. Unlike the "DJ Kadozer" mix he used verses sampled from the song rather than just the "Ski Ba Bop Ba Dop Bop" scat singing. The accompanying video was filmed in the same style as the original song, using clips from the original video intercut with footage of Mark Oh, a female dancer and some black and white betty boop cartoons as well as some public domain black and white films. The end of the video shows Mark Oh leaving a Scatman type hat on a microphone and as he leaves the frame a message comes up on the screen reading "In Loving Memory Of Scatman John".


As far as I know there is only a 2 Track CD available for this song.


OTHER THINGSEdit

There was also a CD released in Japan by the popular Japanese Superhero Ultraman entitled "Scat-Ultraman". The accompanying video showed Ultraman wearing a Scatman hat dancing with various monsters.


For the release of "Scatman's World" there was a Scatman John Interview CD made to be distributed around Radio Stations. It is basically John answering questions that could be filled in by presenters later. Not sure if the CD came in any sort of cover, when I got my copy it was just the CD.


Internet cartoon creation Gummi Bear released an album and one of the cover versions was Scatman, recorded in a vocoder/robotic manner.
