My Sunday Song – “Excuse Me While I Scream” by Aldo Nova

For My Sunday Song #355, we are going to talk about a song called “Excuse My While I Scream” by Aldo Nova. The song is one of the very few vocal performances on his mostly instrumental, weird concept album called “Nova’s Dream” from 1997. Aldo had been absent for almost 6 years and I can tell you personally I was completely unaware of this album until a couple years after its release. There was no promotion on it here in the States and so this album didn’t sell much and went pretty much ignored by most of the listening public. This was not a single, and honestly don’t know if there were any singles for this album, but it was one of my favorites from the album and I can’t say there many on this one.

The song is basically a tribute to Jimi Hendrix. There are so many references to his work and Aldo was heavily influenced by him so why not have a song that pays homage to Jimi. There is nothing wrong with that. When you give the song a listen see how many references you can pick out.

The song is heavily influenced by Jimi Hendrix as that guitar tone and playing is all done as a tribute to the man himself. The vocals have a massive effect on them to make them sound like coming from a radio or old style. It has some woman on backing vocals for the chorus, but the real champion here is the guitar playing. Aldo is very underrated and he goes all out and lays down a nasty solo, some killer riffs and it is all a masterpiece. The keyboards are used for added effect and the drumming is sensational here, but damn those guitars are absolutely nuts. Check it out for the playing alone.

Give the song a listen and let me know what you think? I think he’s an underrated guitarist, what do you think? Thanks for stopping by and I hope all have a wonderful and Happy Sunday.

And that is all…sorry no lyrics, but I couldn’t find them anywhere on the web.
