  • No-Hit Wonder: In the U.S., his only chart entry was "Scatman (ski-ba-bop-ba-dop-bop)" at #60 (although it did hit #10 on the Hot Dance Club Songs chart, #15 on the Hot Dance Singles Sales chart, and squeaked into the Top 40 on the radio airplay charts). It was also a One-Hit Wonder in Australia. He overall did much better in European countries, and did really well in Japan.
  • Write What You Know: "Scatman" itself is an empowerment anthem about overcoming his speech impediment of stuttering.
