Facts:
  • People suspect that none other than Sheb Wooley is the one responsible for the actual "Wilhelm Scream" (peterpuck9)
  • Song Lyrics:
    The legend starts in 1951
    When we listened to the sound of the Distant Drums
    Met his maker in the jaws of an alligator
    There were six screams taken but one proved to be greater
    Than the rest so let's fast forward a bit to the Feather River
    And meet a young private with the lungs that could deliver
    The kind of cry that only girls vocalize
    He unleashed a mighty scream as his thigh was incised

    Ben Burtt, perhaps you may have heard of him
    He noticed a certain sound emanating from a bunch of films
    Decided it was perfect for a film that he made
    So he lifted it and placed it in The Scarlet Blade
    From that point a sonic signature formed
    One that Ben used fairly often in his sound design chores
    To this very day if you happen by his edit bay
    And you listen very closely you can hear him say

    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    Scream a little louder, gotta make a big scene

    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    Scream it to the heavens so they know what you mean

    Over the years the scream has made many appearances
    It sounded out in Warner Brothers films for 20 years and then
    The aforementioned Ben created sounds for Star Wars
    Take four began to show up in movies galore
    A stormtrooper stumbled into a shaft because Luke shot him
    Another was chucked into the freezing chamber by Chewbacca
    Crocodiles enjoyed the Thuggees Indy knocked from the bridge
    Jabba lost a bunch of henchmen in the Sarlac Pit

    Mr. Pink smacked some people in the street
    Buzz Lightyear met a lamp and tumbled head over feet
    The Caped Crusader punched a clown and tossed him clear out the frame
    Grenades exploded in The Last Crusade
    There's numerous other scenes featuring violence and tension
    Young Indiana Jones has too many Wilhelms to mention
    I bet the sound designers meet near to here
    To figure out which films will get the scream this year

    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    Scream a little louder, gotta make a big scene

    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    Scream it like your lacking proper oral hygiene

    Now don't believe that the scream can only used on the screen
    You can use it wherever you see a need
    Got a problem that should probably have the proper punctuation?
    Try a Wilhelm, it can emphasize any bad situation
    That big jerk from accounting just stole your promotion
    Your dinghy's leaking in the middle of the ocean
    That eBay idiot gave you negative feedback
    And the money you gave that bum was converted to crack

    The lid can't be extracted from your Jell-o pudding cup
    It's hard to surf for porn efficiently stuck on dial-up
    All you need is a knife but there's 10,000 spoons
    They're making a Michael Bay film of your favorite cartoon
    The Spanish Inquisition tries to burn you at the stake
    Cavity Creeps gave you a toothache
    The enemy force is just outside your archer's range
    That cell phone soccer mom didn't signal her lane change

    Gotta pee but the urinal's unflushed
    You find yourself in outer space lacking the right stuff
    Frequent visits to the store net you nary a chase figure
    You didn't remember to TiVo the Heroes finale now, did you?
    Invaders from space leveled all the major cities
    There's no more freakin' milk for your bowl of Cocoa Krispies
    Whenever it seems you've been given raw deal
    It's time to scream it like you mean it, let 'em know how you feel

    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    Scream a little louder, gotta make a big scene

    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    Scream it like the doctors finally found a vaccine

    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    Scream a little louder, gotta make a big scene

    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    That calls for a Wilhelm Scream
    Scream it like you found out she was only sixteen
