so the right way to make a thread is to post a dead link, without any comment from the thread starter at all..?

Really? confused

Please....... try again... wink

operator error on your part , not a dead link, is that enough comment for you

wow this written by someone who knows their shit. And what a trip to see the Baby I'm a Star Grammy clip imbedded. It's amazing that he recovered from that initial flub where the shawl pulled the mic, and then he hit himself in the face with it... but he recovered like it was nothing.

Very fun article. I must add - out of principle alone - one of Prince's greatest screams occurs on Little Red Corvette (Dance Mix) (:31 - :35). Impeccable buildup, Incredible scream(s). Maybe it didn't make the cut because it was a remix. Top 5 in my opinion.

I wish it had a link to soundcloud with 30 audio snippets.

I can imagine most of them, but it would be enjoyable to look up all the parts.

Volunteers?

2 of my fave scream examples:

"We Can Funk" has some great screamed lines during the final chapter of the song, "baby" is screamed a few times, and the quick "Ooww"-type scream after the line "..be a big strong man" at ~4:15 is fantastic.

There's some screaming awesomeness in "You Make My Sun Shine" from 4:45 to 5:10 too.

I rarely read these types of articles anymore, because it seems like they're often written by dudes who don't know dick about Prince, but this one was good! A few impressions...

  1. It's odd that the first scream in Endorphinmachine is singled out, and the others get just a nod, when it's obviously the last scream in the song that is special.
  2. The scream in Gett Off is actually Rosie, and since when has the song not aged well? If anything, that 90s thump is sounding fresher these days, at least to my ears.
  3. The Chaos And Disorder album was "tepid?" Nah, man, give it another chance!
  4. I like that the ATWIAD scream is mentioned. Not a typical Prince scream by any means, and most certainly an odd one.
  5. I think Now might be my number 1, instead of Do Me, Baby, as it sounds like he's truly having a psychotic break. Though, the echo effect on the Darling Nikki scream nearly takes it there for me, too.
  6. Tamborine gets a nod for dog whistling, but not God? Excuse me?
  7. My favorite thing about this article is that the writer only had Saviour on cassette. In fact, I love anyone who went to the record store and decided that Emancipation on cassette was indeed the best format. clapping

Gett Off has aged horribly.

Electric Intercourse should be rated higher than it is, because sweat and 8/3/83.

The writer is wrong about Jack U Off. Didn't P call the band in to play "live" on that one?

Not a bad list, the Do Me Baby screams have been under rated for ages and its finally time they got their dues.

.

Shame he does not listen to any boots, because the screams on Electric Intercourse would blow any of those ones away. That scream, on that song is the stuff dreams are made of.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name

Nonsense, prince is noted in a general pop culture way for his screams. It'd be like 30 best Michael Jackson dance moves or 30 best Kanye ridiculous brags.

Interesting idea for a list. I was really surprised that "I'm Yours" wasn't mentioned. Thats a hellacious one. Ditto "Superfunkycalifragisexy" and "Sexual Suicide".

This writer really knows his subject matter. And he hasn´t forgotten to mention one of my favorite songs (with one of the best screams), Something In The Water.

I love the description of Eye No's scream:

What it sounds like: A cat being dragged across a floor during a party, as a brass band plays in the neighboring room.
