Slim Jefferson | Short People

A few days ago this popped up in my Inbox and it has almost been on repeat ever since.  Using a sample from Randy Newman’s song of the same name, Slim Jefferson creates an ‘ode to the haters and nay-sayers’.  Really enjoying this song and can’t wait to hear more from Slim Jeff.  Funny story about the original song, people found it so offensive that in 1978, legislation was introduced in the state of Maryland to make it illegal to play “Short People” on the radio. Contrary to popular myth, the bill did not pass.  Damn you Randy Newman and your hateful soul!  ha, read more to see what all the fuss was about…. Enjoy!
