The Best Beatles Scream?

Post by Lord Reith »

There's nothing better than a good loud scream before the solo, and The Beatles were lucky in having not just one but two of the best screamers in the business.

So what is the best scream on a Beatles track? It doesn't have to be off one of their albums... anything is fair game. And it can be a combination of two screams (like Twist And Shout) is just one (like Long Tall Sally).

I'll reserve my vote for last. :P

Scream away!

Does it have to be a wordless scream? Almost the whole of Paul's vocal on 'Helter Skelter'. If solo is allowed, the increasingly climactic 'Mamma don't go's' on 'Mother'. But both of these may be cheating ...

"I've got blisters on my fingers!" ...although I suppose that is a yell instead of a scream.

I taped this off the radio in 1990: "The Screaming Beatles" montage by Dan Hart.
