I've had this problem before. it's not so fun when you have to work a 12hr shift the next day and NEED sleep. the girl below me sounded like she was getting murdered...really it was a little over exagerated! to top it off the couple looked like ogres, so it brought horrible mental images! leave a note on their door, that seems to work sometimes. =)
Most of these suggestions are counterproductive, since OP also wouldn't be able to sleep through a baby's screaming or Barney music. The upstairs neighbor will just continue when she turns it off— probably with a vengence. Plus, any other neighbors will get pissed off at OP instead of banding with her against the disruptive screamer. I'd utilize the two-strike policy: leave one note, and if she doesn't pipe down, knock at the door and interrupt once, asking her again. If those don't work, take it to the landlord or building co-op; most multi-residence homes include noise policies in their leases or building agreements. Involve other disturbed neighbors if you have to. Or y'know, just invest in earplugs, an mp3 player with white noise, or a loud fan.
