1970s jingles

The GQ thread about KFC reminded me of a couple of their commercial jingles.

Keeee-entucky, Friiiiiiied Chicken! was part of one.

Get a bucket of chicken
(Finger lickin' good!)
Have a barrel of fun
(Goodbye ho-hum!)
Say hello to your family
(Come on everyone!)
At Kuntukey Fried Chicken
Have a barrel of fun!


That was another (allegedly written by Barry Manilow).

And that turned my thoughts to jingles in general.

Levi's
Leeeeeeeeeeeeee
Viiiiiiiiiii's!
Lee-hee-hee-hee-hee-vi's!


Crazy Wheels (bicycle tires)
Crazy Wheels!
Crazy Wheels!
Red, blue yellow
Orange and green
Makin' the scene!


Alka-Seltzer
Plop, plop!
Fizz, fizz!
Oh, what a relief it is!


Dole Bananas
A Dole banana is a great banana
And it's great because it's Dole.
Because it's Dole!


Fig Newtons
Ooey-gooey rich and chewy inside
Golden flaky tender cakey outside
Wrap the inside in the outside, is it good? Darn-tootin'!
Doin' the big
Fig
Newton!
(Here's the tricky part)
The Big
Fig
Newton!


And do I have to mention...
I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to buy the world a Coke a
And keep it company


And then there were the motorcycle jingles...

Yo ho ho for an Oreo

I'd fly to the moon for a Lorna Doone (though both were from the 60s).

Before kids were admonished to "Do the Dew" while riding their skateboards, it was marketed as a drink made by hillbillies.

I drink Dr Pepper and I'm proud
I'm part of an original crowd
And if you look around these days
There seems to be a Dr Pepper craze
ohhh
I'm a Pepper
He's a Pepper
She's a Pepper
They're a Pepper
Wouldn't you like to be a Pepper, too
Be a Pepper, drink Dr Pepper

That was another (allegedly written by Barry Manilow).
I used to have Barry Monilow Live on 8-track (don't ask why), and on it he does a medley of commercial jingles that he wrote or was otherwise involved in. That was one of them.


My bologna has a first name
It's O-S-C-A-R
My bologna has a second name
It's M-A-Y-E-R
I love to eat it every day
And if you ask me why I'll say
'Cause Oscar Mayer has a way
With B-O-L-O-G-N-A


Oh I wish I were an Oscar Mayer wiener
That is what I'd truly like to be
Cause if I were an Oscar Mayer wiener
Everyone would be in love with me

I can't remember all the words of this jingle. But there was an horrific commercial in Canada for Labatt's Blue, circa 1975. The visuals were middle-class, suburban white people in polyester leisure suits and white flared slacks with ugly, patterned shirts with massive collars, milling about in a suburban rec room. The music was totally lame, white-people imitation of watered down disco, and the words I wish I could forget were: "Disco me, disco you, disco Blue..."
Gawd, it was awful!

Burger King:

Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce,
Special orders don't upset us,
All we ask is that you let us
Make it your way

Which my brother and I wickedly parodied as:

Throw the pickles, throw the lettuce
Shut up lady, you upset us,
All we ask is that you let us
Take you away

Weren't we clever?

I'm sure that's not quite right, but I can't for the life of me remember what the correct lyrics are. And they don't seem to be online anywhere. I even vaguely remember having a McDonald's Coloring Calendar with the words to that jingle in it.

Interestingly, an old, old ad from Chicago has been revived. Apparently, what was a local carpet shop has gone national and now coast to coast, we can hear the chorus sing "Eight Hundred. Five Eight Eight Two Three Hundred. Empire!" The animated version of the original Empire Carpet guy unfurling a roll of carpet is a bit creepy for some reason.

Well, part of you still is

I'll never be able to ditch the Spotlight jingle from my brain. They were the HBO before there even was an HBO, I believe. At least, they were the pay movie channel we had when I was a toddler, and then one day...poof, it was gone, replaced by HBO. Anyway...

Spotlight,
Shining bright,
Day and night,
We light up the stars at Spotlight!


I never heard that jingle after turning roughly three years old, but I don't think I've gone a week since then without that earworm wrigging through...

I'm sure that's not quite right, but I can't for the life of me remember what the correct lyrics are.
I remember:

(some opening question, perhaps "Who's the McFunniest fellow in town?", followed by...

Who's our McFavorite Hamburger Clown?
Whose tricks are trickiest?
Whose mind is quickiest?
Ronald! Ronald McDonald!


I also vaguely recall "any time of the year" as part of the jingle.

xizor: Here are the complete lyrics to the Faygo song. However, the transcription is inaccurate. After "Pony rides and Sunday nights", the lines should be:

Roller skates and yo-yos
Fairy tales and
snowball fights
Climb in* through the window


* as I always heard it, although "Climbin'" could just as easily be correct

Here's two for the SoCal codgers:

If you need a car or truck
Go see Cal
Better value for your buck
Go see Cal
Buy a new car for your wife
She will love you all her life
Go see Cal
Go see Cal

(As a kid I thought they singing "pussy cow" instead of "go see Cal.")

Hamburgers in your face
French fries between you toes
Dill pickles up your nose
And then we have our special shakes
Made from polluted lakes...


And of course:

Sometimes in the summer,
It's hard to beat the heat.
Mommas not cookin so when Daddy comes home,
he'll take us to McDonalds to eat.
He says it fits his budget,
and the food tastes very good.
Plus we get to see our friends,
from the neighborhood.

Thanks Sternvogel, unfortunately in Detroit in the 70s, they never showed the entire song in the commercials, just the 30 second abridged version.

Buy a new car for your wife
She will love you all her life
Go see Cal

Go see Cal
And his classic tagline:
If you find a better deal, I'll eat a bug!

It's not a cola,
It's something much much more.
It's not a root beer -
there are root beers by the score.
Drink Dr. Pepper,
the joy of every boy and girl.
It's the most original
soft drink ever
in the
whole
wide
world.

Nestles put out a white chocolate bar in the 80's and had a hauntingly lovely jingle for it:

"Nestles makes the very best
N E S T L E S
A dream as sweet as this
N E S T L E S
Creamy white
Dreamy white
Nestles makes the very best
N E S T L E S"

It played over images of an oddly beautiful woman in a flowing white dress on a big swing and then in a white fur coat looking longingly into the camera.

I actually recorded that one.

Once upon a time there was an engineer
Choo Choo Charlie was his name, we hear.
He had an engine and he sure had fun
He used Good & Plenty candy to make his train run.
Charlie says "Love my Good & Plenty!"
Charlie says "Really rings my bell!"
Charlie says "Love my Good & Plenty!"
Don't know any other candy that I love so
