What A Scream

Yesterday I was listening to my 1975 mix tape in the car and on came Emma by Hot Chocolate, which I hadn't heard in a long time. Two things occurred to me: 1) This is a great song, and 2) The lead singer lets out two spectacular screams near the end of the song, which is unexpected in a smooth ballad like this. Man, this guy is hurting. Any other favorite Top 40 screams?

Wow, what a great track. I'd never heard it before, at least, not that I can remember, but it's now added to my latest "must haves". 

As far as my favorite "scream", I'd have to give the nod to Bobby Stevens moan/screams on The Checkmates Ltd. "Love Is All I Have To Give".

Re: What A Scream

don't know if  "you're gonna miss me" by the thirteenth floor elevators made it to a qualifying chart position or not, but roky erickson's scream on that one has to qualify, regardless, on somebody's chart. certainly mine, most assuredly...

I'll go with Steven Tyler's screaming in tune in Aerosmith's "Dream On."

Another good one is in GOING ALL THE WAY by The Squires.

Re: What A Scream

How about John Lennon's scream going into the musical bridge of "A Hard Day's Night?" or even "Twist & Shout?"
