Mensagem: 

yell comes from Icelandic skuta and shout from germanic gelle

I would say that it is the other way around and that

yell comes from gelle and shout from skuta

Checking this out I came upon an interesting mention of the singing bird 'nightingale'

'gale ' also coming from the old root 'gelle'.

It appears that in the old germanic days it didn't make much difference if you were singing or just plain yelling. Come to think of it the way they sang 3000 years ago is not much different from the way modern songs are 'sung'.
