Today is Sheb Wooley’s birthday. He was born in 1921 and died in 2003.
He’s famous for two big things.
He created the Wilhelm Scream which is the standard man scream and has been used in over 360 films.
Which you can hear here
And he’s famous for the 1958 novelty song “Purple People Eater.”
Now, as a 6 year old, I always thought the people eater was purple.
But listening to the lyrics, I found he only eats purple people.
So I guess we’re all safe.
Enjoy the music.
Maybe you’ll leave a mark on the world today, or two, who knows?
