questionswhat's your favorite old jingle or slogan?


Ya got a lot goin' on in that ol' noggin of yours, don't ya? Back to the Oscar Mayer theme:

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.
Oh I love to eat it everyday,
And if you ask me why say,
'Cause Oscar Mayer has a way with B-O-L-O-G-N-A!!!!


@barnabee: Too much. All the time.

How do you spell relief?
HEAD ON! Apply directly to the forehead.


@moondrake: "Two all beef patties special sauce lettuce cheese PICKLES ONIONS on a sesame seed bun.". My brother worked at a BK when we were kids.


@zippy the pinhead: And we have a WINNAH in the BK Jingle Lyrics contest!


Pepsodent Toothpaste: You'll wonder where the yellow went, when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent!

I'll be back -- medical stuff to tend to for a bit.


@zippy the pinhead: Dang, my typing fingers failed me. I know that one very well, as while they were doing the promotion you could go into McDonalds and get a free Big Mac if you could recite the slogan. I never liked McDonalds but I will take free food where I can get it. In college I lived for months off the McDonalds '84 Olympics promotion boondoggle (showing my age here).


@magic cave: Since you are in a toothpaste mode, my dad used to shout out, "Ah ha, Sani-Flush, cleans your teen without a brush! Did you ever hear of this?


@moondrake: I saw your Puritan's Pride slogan about "selling" chickens and it reminded me of Orson Welles saying, "We will sell no wine before it's time." Yeah, I have a lot going on in my noggin too--most of it is a little strange.


@magic cave: Nope. Because it was a McDonalds jingle!


There was a jingle we'd sing as kids that went "Brush your teeth with Sani-flush, and you'll have no more teeth to brush!"

Honestly, to this day, I have no idea where it originated. I thought we had made it up.


@capguncowboy: That's pretty close to what my dad said. Maybe someone can tell us where they came from.

And now, I'm off to McDonalds. I seem to have a craving for a Big Mac.


Simple and says it all.

Well, since it's good, I guess I'll have some.


Plop, plop,
Fiss, fiss,
Oh what a relief it is.....


All together now!!!

Oh, I want to be an Oscar Mayer Wiener!



How about the old 7Up slogan?

"You like it, it likes you".

When I was just learning how to read, I wondered, how does it know?


This singer got his start writing jingles. A little google fact : He was paid only $500 for State Farm and they're still using it. They got a jingle deal.

Watch and listen or not. I set it to skip over the banter, I hope it works. ETA: Nope doesn't work. You can skip to 1:10 if you want to skip the chat. I recommend doing that.


@ceagee: I love Barry Manilow, and I knew he got his start doing commercial jingles,but I didn't realize how many he'd done. "I am stuck on Bandaids..." Top notch imagination and talent + instant earworms = commercial success.


I just remembered another of my favorites: Flintstone kids, 10 million strong and growing. I just love the elegance of the double meaning.


Ai yi yi yi, I am the Frito Bandito!

He likes it! Hey Mikey!

Ooey gooey rich and chewy inside...


"Mama mia, that's a spicy meatball!" and "I can't believe I ate the whole thing."

Yep, it's time for lunch.


Wow, I have the memory of a gnat. @moondrake already said my last two. Great minds!


@barnabee: That's how jingles work. You hear them over and over again.
