If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

I was thinking of "Houses of the Holy" a LED ZEP title song that's on Physical Graffiti.  There's also THE DOORS "Waiting for the Sun" which is on Morrison Hotel/Hard Rock Cafe...

     Got it-but what I was looking for was someone who was known as a singer / songwriter, who had a hit with a song he / she didn't personally write.

Well, I'm assuming you want songs where the word was actually screamed (or at least yelled), not sung, yes? Otherwise it would be too easy.

"Rain King" - Counting Crows (screams "yeah!" at the end of the song)
"Shout" - The Isley Brothers ("yeah yeah!" "yeah yeah!" is screamed by some random band member)
"I Put a Spell on You" - Screamin' Jay Hawkins (screams "Whoa Yeah!" just before the sax solo)
"I'm Just a Bill" - Schoolhouse Rock (when the bill get signed into law, the bill shouts "Oh Yeah!")
"Baba O'Riley" - The Who (Daltrey's iconic scream of "yeah" at the end of middle synth part)

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
