Ahh, but you didn't specify they had to be albums you liked; you asked if there were (many) examples of Paul screaming after the mid-eighties. And there are a-hard-days-night-paul-11

They didn't, my question was because I don't find the desire to listen to such albums for typed reason. You have therefore enlightened me. apple01apple01

Alright, I've finished my analysis of NEW. There's a lot going on on that one! I only listed what stood out; there are a few minor ones I didn't include in this list.

NEW 2013

Save Us - Two distinct screams - a low-register one before the final chorus, and a higher one at the end of the song.
Alligator - No screaming, but a few sustained 5th octave notes
Queenie Eye - Very high, sustained scream/squeal (F#5 or A5), held for about 5 seconds.
Early Days - No screams, but a few sustained 5th octave notes
New - Again, no screams, but the top note in the chorus is quite high. The same applies to Appreciate.
Everybody Out There - Some good, powerful roars in the last part of the song.
Road - Some powerful vocals, bordering on screaming, but not quite getting to that point, IMO
Turned Out - A good roar near the end, and a signature Macca 'woooooo' at the end
Struggle - The spoken bit borders on screaming at some points, though I'm not sure they count as screams. The 'everybody PRAAAAYYYY' bit definitely counts as one, though.
Hell To Pay - Very powerful vocals, and some impressive roars (There will be HELL to PAAAAYYYYYYY)
Demon's Dance - A sustained, high-pitched (upper 5th octave) howl in the second half of the song, and a funny yelp near the end, also 5th octave.

Next up: Memory Almost Full (since 'Kisses' won't have much screaming going on, if any).

Hi @Mademoiselle Kitty >^..^<, I have spent a lot of time with this album (at least 5 complete listens since we last spoke). I even went and bought the CD so I could play it loud. I can certainly vouch for all you said here regarding screams and such, but I think your bigger point is that Paul is still has most of his full vocal range/capacity. The falsettos in particular were a welcome surprise and to me are as hard to pull off as the upper octaves. That little middle part in Queenie Eye (Its long way, to the finish>When you've never been before>I was nervous, but I did it>Now Im going back for more) makes the little hairs on my arm dance around a-hard-days-night-paul-4. Also I think my favorite yell is the one you pointed out in that song. I wrote down a bunch of stuff during the first few rounds but it's mostly out of topic like "great jangly guitar sounds 😉 ". It's funny I'm not sure why I started ignoring Paul's new releases. I remember seeing him on TV the year Linda passed and I'm sure he was still in mourning. His stage demeanor was one of someone who's heart was no longer in it, so maybe there was a hangover from that. Anyway thanks a lot for turning me on to NEW apple01...now on to Memory Almost Full ahdn_paul_02

That would be Robert Plant.

But Paul was a really good screamer.  I wish he had more hard-edge songs like Helter Skelter .

Also that one line in Golden Slumbers took me aback.

a-hard-days-night-paul-8Thank you, @sigh butterfly! I'm glad you agree with me. Paul definitely seems to have found some new energy since he met Nancy, and his music is now better than it has been in a while. Flaming Pie certainly was a beautiful album but to me, but I get what you mean.

I think Driving Rain is disappointing even though the critics raved about it, and though Chaos And Creation In The Back Yard contains some of my all-time favourite songs (Jenny Wren just might be my #1 Macca song), I also dislike about half the songs on that one. I guess I could argue that for me, She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named brought out the best and worst in Paul, at the very least on an artistic level. 

I still haven't gotten 'round to analysing the screaming qualities of Paul's other post-Wings work, but I'll get there some day. I hope.

I know it's not really funny but "She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named" got the giggles going. The whole thing was awful wasn't it, right up there with Charles and Diana blue-meanie. Haven't heard Jenny Wren in a while so I'm going to queue that up right now  a-hard-days-night-paul-8.

Oh wow, that's insanely cool! And, where else but Amsterdam? Too bad he stayed away from my nation's capital for 40 years after that. Well, as far as doing concerts is concerned, anyway. I'm sure he found other reasons to visit the city (in fact, everybody knows he did...hahaha)

Thanks for that, @meanmistermustard apple01

Haha yeah, I seem to recall hearing/reading stories about Paul's "tourism" to Amsterdam. But then, many celebrities enjoy that city for similar reasons.

 

AND.... the Dutch are a famously great audience, of course. Most bands will attest to that.
