LeRoy Stevens’s ‘Favorite Recorded Scream’ and Hey and Na Na

This sounds like a fun project: LeRoy Stevens’s ‘Favorite Recorded Scream’ Compiles Howls – NYTimes.com.

I’ve been collecting songs that include the phrases “hey” and/or “na na” as part of my piece, Hey, the Na Na Song. (Download a pdf of the score). Seems like I should have been asking true record geeks for their input all along. Or maybe Field Guide readers will suggest their favorite Hey’s and Na Na’s in the comments section.

Here’s the list so far:

Songs that include both “Na Na” and “Hey”
Song Title Performer Album
Hey Jude The Beatles Beatles 1
Me and Bobby McGee Janis Joplin Pearl
Na Na, Hey Hey, Kiss Him Goodbye Steam Steam
Songs that include “Na Na”
