The Love Rollercoaster Scream

The Love Rollercoaster Scream

Good old 1975, the year I was born…and also the year that the Ohio Players album ‘Honey’ was released. One of the songs on this album contains a background scream which sounds like a woman in agony…

Let’s take a closer look at the Love Rollercoaster scream…


Love Rollercoaster

The song ‘Love Rollercoaster’, could be found on the b-side of the popular 70’s funk band’s album, ‘Honey’.

The song quickly became a worldwide hit, and numerous pop charts linked to numerous countries showcased it’s catchy melody…

But was there more to the meteoric rise of this popular song?

Did it have a little help from an urban legend that sprang up around it?


The Mysterious Scream

At approximately 2:32 into the song, a woman’s scream belts out from the background of the tune. Within months of the album’s release, the scream became a hot topic in the music industry.

Eventually, the show American Top 40 came forward with a theory…

The girl used on the front cover of the ‘Honey’ album was a Playboys Playmate named Ester Cordet. Her image has her spooning a large amount of honey into her mouth.

The photographers could not get the honey to flow in the correct manner for the image, so they heated it up…apparently a little too much!

The honey ended up dripping on Cordet’s body and severely burning her – the scream she came out with was somehow caught by a microphone in the recording setup.

But this explanation got changed and slightly twisted within months of it’s release…and eventually a new version surfaced….

Apparently, Cordet threatened to sue the band as she stood there in pain…and the band manager dragged her out of the studio and murdered her (and these are the screams we hear on the album).

The band witnessed this murder and decided to include her dying scream on the album, as a memento…

This would be a pretty cool version of events…but apparently Ester Cordet is still alive and well today!

A few more conspiracy theories rose from the musical urban legend – a female cleaner in the studio was murdered, it was the sound of a rabbit being ripped apart with a knife…or it was a sampled piece of audio that the band had picked up from a nearby asylum.

The band eventually came forward and claimed the scream was nothing more than musician Billy Beck performing an inhaling-type screech before he blasted out a line of lyrics.

The band had decided to keep quite due to the urban legend that the song had created – they would obviously sell more records with this ‘scream’ linked to one of the songs!

But it was an explanation that came MUCH too late…and conspiracy theorists still claim that the scream is a very real female scream of terror.

No law enforcement agencies have ever looked into this claim.

What are your thoughts on the subject – a band member’s inhaling-type screech or a true scream of terror?

The Ursula and Sabina Eriksson Conspiracy

The Ursula and Sabina Eriksson Conspiracy

This article will be covering the strange case of possession linked to the Ursula and Sabina Eriksson conspiracy – Why did they go uncontrollably insane at the exact same time?


Ursula and Sabina

Ursula and Sabina Eriksson were normal twins from Sweden with no prior mental or general health problems. They were living normal, happy lives with their respective families.

Sabina was living in Ireland, and her sister, Ursula, decided to pay her a visit. She booked her flight, packed her bags, and got ready for a tearful family reunion…

Things did not turn out as she planned…


Their Strange Actions

Ursula arrived in Ireland safely enough, and her sister met her at the airport. For some reason – they both decided to board a bus and travel from Ireland to London.

This was a completely unplanned trip, they had not mentioned it to any of their family members.

Their Strange Actions
Sabina

After about an hour of the bus journey, their fellow passengers began to get very worried about the two sister’s actions. They seemed to slip into an uncontrollable rage – as if they had suddenly turned drunk…but they had not been drinking.

The driver could not help but notice this strange event and was left with no choice other than to kick them off – he had to protect his ‘sane’ passengers.

The girls ended up on the hard shoulder of a motorway – then they started walking the remainder of the journey (to London) along the middle of the busy motorway!


Arrest

It wasn’t long before the cameras caught Ursula and Sabina’s mad motorway journey – the police turned up within minutes.

When the girls were first arrested, they seemed fine – both seemed to be able to hold a conversation with the police.

Without warning – Ursula decided to run back into the middle of the motorway, slamming right into the huge wheels of a passing truck, and bouncing off.

Sabina then followed suit – she dashed into the middle of the busy motorway but unfortunately a passing car hit her!

She got straight up from the tarmac and attacked the arresting police by scratching and hitting at them. Ursula tried to join in with this attack, but her legs had been too badly damaged by the collision with the truck.


An Early Release

Both sisters were eventually taken back to the local police station, and arrested.

The following day Sabina seemed to ‘come around’ a lot quicker then her sister. The police decided that she was now in a decent enough state of mind to be released.

This proved to be the wrong decision…

Within hours of Sabina’s release she had killed a man who was simply trying to help her – he was apparently in the process of offering her somewhere to stay when she waited for her sister’s release.

She then proceeded to throw herself off a 40 foot bridge in an apparent suicide attempt.

Somehow she survived the 40 foot fall.

She eventually ended up getting only 5 years in prison due to the fact that her lawyers had no problems in convincing a jury that she was completely mad.


The Ursula and Sabina Eriksson Conspiracy

What was behind the twin sister’s actions over that 24 hour period – what caused them to act like possessed maniacs?

They were both tested for drugs and alcohol – nothing showed up in their system.

Demonic possession, temporary insanity or a complex mid control experiment – what do you think?
