Ad jingles you still remember

Inspired by the other thread, I remembered a few jingles from the early 90s:

“buy yourself a little free-dom, buy yourself a little YU-GO.”

“Somewhere on ice mountain, half way to the sky, that’s where Ice Mountain pure spring water lies.”

What are some long lost jingles you can’t forget, no matter how much you wish you could? Bonus for products / companies that were once wide-spread and well-known, but are now relegated to the dust- bin of pop-culture. (Damn, that’s a lot of dashes, some must be wrong. Oh well. )

Double bonus for including links, so we can all enjoy them.

A couple of days ago, at work, I presented a report to an associate to clean up. She only looked at the front page and remarked, scornfully, “It’s not big!” I said “Oh it’s big, yeah yeah yeah! It’s not small, no no no!” – and then had the Honeycomb ad from the early 80s (late 70s?) stuck in my noggin.

MEANWHILE, a friend who was working from home that day posted on Facebook a Youtube link to the Honeycomb ad (the one with Andre the Giant); he had independently gotten it stuck in his head!

Every now and then for no apparent reason I will break out in this song:

“From the land of sky blue water…waaater.”

Or when someone is being uneccessarily unhelpful I will say “Thank you for your support.” Which I got from those Bartles and Jaymes ads.
ETA: Baker, that’s the one I was thinking of!

Those goddamn telephone numbers really stick in your head don’t they?

…a Saturday night dance, a bottle of coke
and the joy that the bluebirds sing
(the ad version of the Dottie West song)

Way back, Pearl Jam played one of the last concerts ever at the old Chicago Stadium. Somewhere in the middle of the concert, Eddie Vedder was chatting between songs and said, “I’m from Evanston, and I can prove it,” then he sang, “five eight eight, two three hundred,” and the entire stadium sang back at him, “EMPIRE!” It was weird, awesome, and hilarious. One of those moments I’ll never forget, and of course the Empire commercial was the first thing that came to mind when I read the thread title.

Candy coated popcorn,
