24. Ohio Players - Love Rollercoaster

Found on: Honey (1975)

Great funky track with an undeniable rhythm and horn hook. There's a persistent urban legend that the scream in the middle of the song is the girl on the cover. The tale says she was disfigured by the fake honey used in the photo, attacked the band members in a fit of rage and was killed in self defense. Never mind that recording probably would have been stopped had this grisly scene played out as rumored, and never mind that very few bands have cover art completed before they finish recording an album! Oh, plus, she's still alive.
