Scream - Usher

Usher, baby
Yeah, we did it again
And this time I'mma make you scream

USHER! Yeah, man...

I see you over there, so hypnotic
Thinking 'bout what I do to that body
I get you like ooh baby baby
Ooh baby baby, ah-ooh baby baby ooh baby baby
Got no drink in my hand
But I'm wasted
Getting drunk of the thought of you naked
I get you like ooh baby baby
Ooh baby baby, ah-ooh baby baby ooh baby baby

And I ain't trying to fight it, to fight it
But you're so magnetic, magnetic
Got one life, just live it, just live it
Now relax, sing it on your back

If you wanna scream, yeah
Let me know and I'll take you there
Get you going like ah-ooh
Baby baby ooh baby baby
Ah-ooh baby baby ooh baby
If you wanna turn right
Hope you're ready to go all night
Get you going like ah-ooh
Baby baby ooh baby baby
Ah-ooh baby baby ooh baby
If you wanna scream

Yeah, come on

Kill the lights, shut 'em off
You're electric
Devil eyes telling me come and get it
I have you like ooh
Baby baby ooh baby baby
Ah-ooh baby baby ooh baby baby
Girl tonight you're the prey
I'm the hunter
Take you here, take you there
Take you wonder
Imagine me whispering in your ear
Then I wanna, take off your clothes and put something on ya


Out, louder, scream louder
Louder, louder, louder
Hey, tonight I scream, I'm on need

[Beat break]


Meaning, Main Idea, and Message of The Song

To straight men, women are the most enticing thing in the world. They complete men's desire. You know there are three things men usually run after: money, power, and sex. In order to have money, men must be rich. In order to get power, they must be influential, or in charge of something. And the last, in order to feel the sex or in other words to get women, they must be attractive. However, keep in mind that being attractive doesn't necessarily have something to do with the looks. No. Nowadays, being rich and having power make a man attrative. Not suprisingly, then, that it's easy for rich or powerful men, however below standard their looks are, to have beautiful women beside them.

So, what do men want from their women? Well, it depends on their personality. There are some men who want their women to accompany them all their life. This type of men usually consider women as a creature who can pacify them. They find joy and happiness in their company. In some places, in order for them to do this, they must marry their women. You know, in countries like America, marriage is not a must. They could live together in one house without having marriage ties. Domestic partner is the term commonly used to refer to such relationship.

Beside the above type of men, there are also some men who want their women just to satisfy their momentary sexual desire. This type of men do not want to live together with the women they like. They just want to have fun with them. They may be willing to spend much money for them, but they are not willing to hold responsibility as husband. What such men actually want is freedom.

This Usher's Scream song, to me, seems to tell about such a man's wild imagination about a woman he wants to have fun with. All things in the song only happens in his imagination. So, the man hasn't had any sex with the woman. He may really want it. Her physical looks make him imagine that. But, all he has done to the woman is imagining. So, nothing has happened, only imagination.

Well, that's my interpretation of Usher's Scream song. Your comments are highly appreaciated.


  1. I personally think its about an oragnism because when he says now relax and get on your back he could mean lay down and loosen your pussy so I can fit my cock in it.
