Playground Repertoire 1960.

The biggest, most burly, 6th grader bully would come up, with his admiring clique of cronies, to a naive 4th grader and ask:

"What is the beginning of that cigarette commercial?"

The reply from Naïveté was:

   "Winston taste's good."

Upon which bully would pull out the top of his trousers, look down into his pants and reply to the guffaws of his friends:

   "Hear that Winston?"

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

It is good to round off the rough edges at an early age. Pecking order exists.

You open 'em up and you close 'em back.

Hi Dana. Every time I see the package of these crackers this jingle starts running through my brain. I remember it a little differently   The first 2 lines are the same as your recollection. But I remember the rest as: No crackers to break up, they're singlely stacked. And they stay crisp to the very, very last cracker.

I learned the Chambers Caskets parody from Joe Hickerson at a house party in the 1970s in St. Louis.

I did a show at a library in the south side of St. Louis in the 1980's and met the guy who said that he wrote the lyrics. His name is Jim Sparks. He lived in St. Louis MO. I'm pretty sure he has passed away by now.

I did the song and he came running up in shock that anybody knew the song. He said he had been commissioned to write a theme song for the funeral director's convention in New York City in 1939. Here are the words (sung to Rock of Ages):

Chambers caskets are so fine,
Made of sandal-wood and pine.
When your loved ones pass away,
Have them pass the Chambers way.
Chambers customers all sing,
"Death, oh death, where is thy sting?"

This may have been posted already, as I haven't read the whole thread.
But does anyone remember the VERY politically incorrect one,

"The Esso sign means happy motoring (X3)
Call at the Esso sign!"
which was repeated by various oval-shaped Esso signs representing various races. eg a Chinese one with pigtails singing "Velly happy motoling" and an African one "De Esso sign mean..." etc.

As children we used to sing along with all the racist accents, even pulling our eyes into slits for the Chinese one. (1950's) Oh dear!

What folk tune went with this old jingle.

"Nothing is nicer than a Pendleton's Twicer"



I don't think it was set to music. Rather, it took the form of a limerick:

There was a young girl from South Bend
Who had only twopence to spend
What could be nicer
Than a Pendleton's Twicer
Ice cream with a lolly each end


- or as we used to have it, among my friends on the streets of Liverpool:

Have we had "Washing machines go better with Calgon"?

A recent one, but peculiarly antique in tone ~~ real throwback to the earliest [mid-1950s in UK tv ads]. Have been wondering if this is an attempt to cash in on some sort of nostalgia market, or a bit of advertisers' or agents' ineptitude. Ambivalent about it.

One of the best, I recall from those very early days, was the briefest, 10 second 3-worder "Sleep sweeter. Bournvita", with a steaming mug wearing a nightcap.

The one that irritates me at the moment [a slogan rather than a jingle] is the bookmaker's one that enjoins in hearty hectoring tones "Don't settle for less!" Less what, exactly?

My favorite Ballantine song/lyric (c. 1965):

Why is Ballantine beer like a rocket flight,
Why is Ballantine beer like an opening night?

Why is Ballantine beer like a marching band,
a race that finishes neck and neck (background whinny)...or a ride on a toboggan sli-i-ide?

Why is Ballantine beer like a bugle call (background: a piece of reveille),
Why is Ballantine beer like a firemen's ball?

...and why is Ballantine beer like a kite in a windy sky?
There's more spirit to it, that's why!

How's this for a dip into prehistoric times?

I remember in the late 1930s when I was a rug rat, a radio commercial for a laundry soap. Rinse-O. It was a little girl's voice singing
"Rinse-O white! Rinse-O white!
"Happy little wash day song!"
The singer was a nine-year-old girl who went by the named "Bubbles" Silverman.

Some years later, she emerged again, as one of this country's foremost opera singers. But she had undergone a bit of a name change.

Now she was known as "Beverly Sills."

Fig Newton (same era):

The one and the only Fig Newton is a very remarkable thing...
(don't remember the rest, although the tune's still with me; may have been a girl on a tree swing in the TV commercial; anyone?)

It ended with: The one and the only Fig Newton is a very remarkable, very remarkable, very reMARKable thing!"

Others have mentioned a couple of sixties-era Chef Boyardee commercials (e.g. the "French school kids" one for Spaghetti and Meatballs: "Come when the bell calls, spaghetti and meatballs"; and, another for Ravioli: "Ravioli, we like ravioli..."). There was a third one in that series, I believe for Beefaroni, featuring "British" school children. I don't know the name of the "English sounding" tune was or all the words, but there was something about "oodles and oodles of big (tasty?) noodles, and beef, tomato and cheese" -- or something like that.

But the one I wish had *never* aired was for Del Monte canned juices. I was in fourth grade when this one was popular and my last name was "Belmonte" back then, so you can imagine the rest:

Del Monte fruit juice drinks, so fresh, so light.
Del Monte fruit juice drinks -- good morning, noon or night!

Somebody posted the words to the old Shredded Ralston jingle, and I've just about driven myself insane trying to find an original recording (and haven't). Does anybody know of somewhere I could find it? I have reason to believe, from my research that it was performed by the Ranch Boys Trio (compromised of Joe "Curley" Bradley, Jack Ross and Ken "Shorty" Carson). As a side note, Curley played "Pecos" in the Tom Mix radio programs. Shorty was later a member of the Sons of the Pioneers, then the Garry Moore show (which is also terrible hard to find footage of)-- and who knows whatever happened to Jack. ;) I know he did some records of his own, but I haven't researched his career. The Ranch Boys Trio were also featured earlier in the "Pinto Pete and his Ranch Hands" radio show (which can be found at archive.org).......

*laugh* pardon my rambling. The point is, I'm looking for a recording of the Shredded Ralston jingle.

Does anyone remember this jingle for Franco American Spaghetti? All that stuck with me was this part:

Plump Tomatoes, Cheddar Cheese
A lively sauce that's bound to please

Pretty sure the last line was:

"Franco American Spaghetti!"

It was: Not bitter, not sweet/ it's a dry flavored treat/ won't you try/extra dry Rheingold beer

and Colgate dental cream/ what a toothpaste/ it cleans your breath/ while it cleans your teeth.

And then LSMFT Lucky Strike Means Fine Tobacco

and a cigarette add with an auctioneer, ending "Sold American!"

One of my contemporaries used to march down Swanley Village High Street bellowing out "I drinks Idris when I's dry." I don't know if it qualifies as a jingle though.

"Come when the bell calls; spaghetti and meatballs; for you and for me; it's Chef Boy-ar-dee!"

I thought of this the other day while putting on sunscreen, so I got a little help from Google--

Make the most of moments in the sun.
Coppertone makes living in the sunshine fun.
You get the quickest tan as you can plainly see
'Cause nothing tans like Coppertone, naturally--
Get the fastest tan that anyone can.
Tan, don't burn, get a Coppertone tan!

Given what we now know about sunburns and skin cancer, it makes me wonder, what, if anything, those early "suntan lotions" actually did. If it's true that Coppertone allowed you to "get the fastest tan that anyone can," then I infer that it didn't screen out ANY ultraviolet rays. So what did it do? And how did it help you prevent a sunburn? Or did it?

You'll stop paying the elbow tax
When you start using Ajax.
So use Ajax (boom boom)
The foaming cleanser (dadadadadada da da),
Wash the dirt
Right down the drain (bububububububu bu).

Has scratchy throat
Got your goat?
Here's a pleasant way to relieve it:
Get a box of Candettes,
Pleasant-tasting Candettes,
Try one and you'll believe it.
Don't let scratchy throat
Get your goat.
Get!
Can!
dettes!

Dr. Ross Dog Food and Super Koola in cap-top cans...
Oh, wow, someone here is as old as I am!
Anyone else remember "Western Airlines, the o-o-o-only way to fly!"
Or, "She's Camay all over..."
I think Ipana toothpaste was touted as "friendly to your tee-eeth."

And here are a couple of parodies:

"I wonder where the yellow went?
Somebody had an accident!"

"I hate Bosco, it's full of TNT.
Mommy put it in my milk, to try to poison me.
But I fooled Mommy, and put it in her tea,
And now there is no Mommy to try and poison me!"

"Double your pleasure, double your fun --
Make out with two guys instead of just one."

Folk music of the post-radio age.
