Songs that contain the word....
« on: November 10, 2011, 09:44:39 am »
"Hwuuuurrr!"

Boab and I, on one of our many long Friday evening hauls along the A14, heading Audaxwards, were lamenting the loss of this powerful vocal ingredient in modern popular music. There just aren't enough songs with it in, are there?

We tried to list some. My feeble brain couldn't get much past Edmin Starr's "War".

All together now - "War. Hwuuuurr... Yeah... what is it good for?" See? It's great!

So. What's your favourite song containing the word Hwuuuurr?

Any number of James Brown songs, this one's a good performance with some interesting guitar.

Hmm... There are Eight "Yeah"s, six "Oww"s, two suspicious grunts near 2:38 and a "Bam!", but I don't hear any "Hwuuuurrr"s...

Must try harder.  ;)

"The Message" by Grandmaster Flash* has a pretty good "Uhuhuhuh".

It's a great excuse to go through a load of JB performances though. There's bound to be one in here.

Edwin Starr had previous with his vocal ejaculations. A bit of a poor level on the sound, but worth it for the Go-Go dancing. The two blondes at the front look like trouble.

Good one! But you have to be patient - it doesn't come [sic] until 3:07!

Heaven 17: Temptation 12". The "Huuurrrr" is right at the start on that one  :thumbsup:

(though maybe it's more of a Haaaaah !")

Though to be fair it's more of a 'u-huh' with a few 'hah' for good measure.
