Subject: Max's Silly Song Challenge Part 1
From: Max
Date: 29 Aug 00 - 05:28 PM

Here's the song challenge.

Does anyone know the softdrink Squirt?

A delightful grapefruit beverage that was heavily advertised in the 50's, 60's and early 70's in the most novel ways. Tin foil ashtrays, silly poster ads, signs, toy trucks, glasses, buttons, coolers, etc.

Have you seen any Squirt ads lately? I haven't. In fact, I can't even figure out who manufactures it anymore. No official website that I can find...

So the challenge is to write songs about Squirt that would fit in a 60 second commercial. Longer entries will be accepted. You can submit entries in any format: just lyrics, MP3's or other audio formats, arrangements, whatever.

Let's see what you got.

Well, that was an interesting search! I've a few male friends who might enjoy some of the sites I found!

My mom loved Squirt. I haven't thought of it in years!

For a zing and a tang
A taste to quench your thirst
Just pop the top and drink it down
That's Squirt, Squirt, Squirt!

A little bit of lemon,
A zesty tinge of lime
Add grapefruit, shake and bottle it
It's Squirt, Squirt, Squirt!

Your mouth will feel so fresh
A babe magnet you'll be
The best of times will be all yours
With Squirt, Squirt, Squirt!

So, when you're out a'cruising
Or dragging down on Vine
Pop that top and drink it down
It's Squirt, Squirt, Squirt!

Ah, c'mon Max, most jingles don't go for the whole 60 seconds; or if they did, they used an instrumental brdige. There's usually ad copy in between...can ya hear me whining?**BG**

Hey, here's another only it bombed, I think, at least I've not seen it for years, one of the first diet colas: TAB!

OK, Max. Imagine a bunch of folks in fruit outfits - maybe some of those Fruit of the Loom guys are looking for work. Imagine these fruits on a stage, in front of an audience of thirsty people. Imagine rap.

Ro-de-doe-doe and root-i-toot-toot
We ain't nothin' but a bunch of fruit
Ain't got no caffeine to make you jumpy
And we got no chunks to make us lumpy
If you want to be refreshed and alert
Drink Squirt!

(armpit solo by grapefruit)

Ro-de-doe-doe and root-i-toot-toot
We ain't nothin' but a bunch of fruit
We're pure and righteous, you wanna just bite-chus
But you can't, 'cause we been squeezed real tight, just-
Drink us to be refreshed and alert
We're Squirt!

My favorite pop, I have a can of Ruby Red flavored Squirt right here (it comes in regular grapefruit and ruby red). Maybe they sell it only in Montana now??

Come and listen to the story of a little can of Squirt,
It doesn't taste like beer, so don't give a can to bert,
It's only sold out west, where it passed the tastin' test,
You can drink it in the sun while you're sweatin' in your shirt.

Alice,
I think what you have there are old fallout shelter rations. We cleaned out our basements to help with the fire emergency. Check the expiration date....Wait. If it's what I think it is, there is no expiration date. Pass on the biscuits too.

I prefer a whole ad campaign: "Be an extrovert. Drink Squirt!" with the School Band Leader, baton atwirl, with a pimply dweeb in background. Dweeb has coke; leader has Squirt.

"Be an extrovert. Drink Squirt!" with handsome rock musician banging away at an electric guitar (Squirt at his side) and feebie accordian player knocking over his Coke with a rambunctious "Lady Of Spain".

Be an extrovert. Drink Squirt!" with a line of gorgeus male dancers in tuxes doing something romantic while our pimply friend with knobby knees below a badly hung kilt kicks over his Coke while attemting a spastic version of Riverdance.

If you want some Squirt lemme tell ya how to do it,
Grease the can in mutton suet,
When your friends try to raise it to their mouth,
It'll fall to the ground --you can watch 'em pout,
Go easy,
But go greasy,
Go get another can.

Squirt is the best I've heard 'em say,
If you don't agree you'll have to pay,
I'll be sending Gargoyle to your house,
And everyone knows that he's a louse,
He eats Mud-cats,
I hope he gets furballs.

So if you want to know what a condom is for,
Just ask me because I know,
It don't rhyme at all and that's O.K.
It's to keep the can from slipping out of your hand.
Bet you thought I was gonna make a pun on the word "squirt",
a dirty one
, But no,
Whatever...
Just keep on keepin' on,
And keepin' on,
And keepin' on,
And keepin'...
Until you fill up the minute.

I was workin' for coke in the bottling plant when they came out with Tab. Managment gave everyone in the plant a 6-pack for their very own.The consensus was that only a man who was dieing of thirst could drink a whole bottle.
They later changed the formula, but it didn't help much in my opinion
Squirt is good stuff but the muse ain't moving right now.

The general concensus was that TAB tasted tinny. But some were addicted to it and protested loudly when it was dropped as better (???) diet drinks came on the market. Remember the scene from "Back To The Future"? Modern day "Cal" orders a TAB. The clerk looks at him blankly and says he can't give him a tab until he runs up a bill.

Art and Amos - well done! Will gargoyle be earning royalties on this?

Okay this inspired by Jeri's entry.

The opening scene is a personnel/casting office waiting room full of past, (now out of work), various commercial advertising soft drink characters, (the guy from that 7up ad that said, "These are Un-cola nuts", a family dressed like polar bears from the Coke ad singing the I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing jingle, the dancing Dr. Pepper troop, etc) and, our heros, three young fresh looking guys dressed in fruit costumes. All are nervously practicing their old slogans trying to prepare for their turn at an interview with Squirt representatives.

The camera pans the room and those in it and then stops at the three fruit guys, (Lemon, Orange and Grapefruit), who are huddled together, eyes darting about the room observing some of their competitors.

The Lemon fruit guy says, "Hey, they're not bad."

(Camera pans to Dr. Pepper dancers who trip and fall awkwardly from lack of practice)

(then the Orange guy excitedly asks), "Is that who I think it is?"

(Camera pans to a Michael Jackson character doing the moon walk).

Grapefruit interrupts, "Don't worry boys, I hear we've got this one in the bag."

Over a loud speaker a secretary type is heard saying "Next" which momentarily interrupts the activity in the waiting room.

The fruit guys rise confidently and make their way to through a door.

(Next scene shows the three in a bare room, no windows, furniture, nothing. The walls, floor and ceiling are covered in stainless steel. A panel slips over the door that they just stepped through with a "CLANG!" so as to obscure it and making the entire room look just like the inside of a stainless steel box.)

Puzzled and disoriented the fruit look nervously at one another.

An executive type voice, from a hidden speaker, can be heard saying, "Congratulations boys you got the job".

(The three can be heard cheering with glee as a panel opens in middle of the floor to reveal a series of holes. Then a camera shot of two of the walls in the room slowly begin to move toward one another.
>br>(The next scene is of a bottle of Squirt being filled in the bottling factory on the assembly line.)

A narrator says, "Squirt is made with only the juices of fresh lemons, oranges and grapefruits. For a tangy thirst quenching taste treat, that can't be beat by those other soft drinks, choose an ice cold bottle of Squirt!"

(Last scene is of bottles of Squirt on ice.)

An' even coke
Are naething when compared wi' you
They mak me choke!

Ye Powr's wha mak mankind your care
And dish them out their bill o' fare
Mak siccar noo, that ony where

Kat,
I have looked everywhere for Evening In Paris in the tiny blue bottle just to prove to myself I hadn't imagined it. Used to buy it at Woolworth's for my mother for every birthday, holiday, etc. Thanks for the vote of sanity.

Thanks, Art. I did that just for you.

Evening in Paris? That was my sister's and my eternal gift to my mother. I should ask her if she ever even wore that stuff. It seemed to disappear, but I have no recollection of ever smelling it ON her ...

When I was in high school I had a college boyfriend who gave me a vodka and Squirt once and I thought he was so-o-o-o sophisticated. (Yes, Spaw. The drink.)
