Most of the great voices are instantly recognizable: Ella, Janis, Lena, Etta, Billie, and a host of others. Nina's gives me goose bumps.

Those low-pitched, husky, breathy, female voices: A friend described them sounding like a saxophone.  "The notes come out and you can hear them, but there's all this other sound in there."

Screamin' Jay Hawkins was pop? Maybe, thinkin' about it, he was. Still, it's funny to read about the song's roots (from wikipedia):

"Hawkins originally envisioned the tune as a refined ballad."<5> The entire band was intoxicated during a recording session where "Hawkins screamed, grunted, and gurgled his way through the tune with utter drunken abandon."<5> The resulting performance was no ballad but instead a "raw, guttural track" that became his greatest commercial success and reportedly surpassed a million copies in sales,<6><7> although it failed to make the Billboard pop or R&B charts
