Message: 1 Date: Sun, 25 May 2003 11:55:47 -0000 From: Laura Pinto Subject: Re: Heaven Scent & other commercial jingles Commercial jingles from the 60's and 70's ... now THERE'S a topic that's very close to my heart. Simply put, I LOVE 'EM! I have the CD to which you refer, Television's Greatest Commercials, and I have fun singing along with the "Slinky" jingle. Although I don't own it, I'm also familiar with the Coke jingle CD. I also have a few videos of vintage commercials; one of them has the "Teaberry Shuffle" ad you mentioned. Another one I like is the Alka-Seltzer commercial "No Matter What Shape Your Stomach's In," later released on 45 by the T-Bones. Probably it's no coincidence that my friend and all-time favorite entertainer, Ron Dante, was the undisputed king of the jingles during the late 60's and early 70's. In the book "Bubblegum Music is the Naked Truth," Ron observes that he recorded jingles for everything under the sun with the possible exception of "feminine hygiene deodorants" ... and that's almost the literal truth. His live act often includes a commercials medley in which he brings back a ton of memories by singing, unaccompanied, the American Airlines jingle ("We're American Airlines ... doin' what we do best"); KFC ("Grab a bucket of chicken"); McDonald's ("You deserve a break today"), and a couple of my personal favorites, one of which you mentioned, "Dr. Pepper (So Misunderstood)" and "I'm a Pepper." I was fortunate enough to find sound bytes of these two Pepper jingles by Ron online, and I now have them on my computer plus in the Files section of my Oldies and Bubblegum Music Group, along with two others by him, a vintage "General Tire" jingle ("Sooner or later you'll own Generals") and the famous Archies-soundalike "Tang" ("Do the moonwalk like the as-tro-nauts ..."), both in their entirity. Ebay is a great place to check for CD's and videos of old commercial jingles. One of my favorites, though, is a local New York metro area goodie from the very early 60's ... the old Palisades Park commercial ("Come on over"). This one appears in several of the old 77 WABC airchecks preserved on Allan Sniffen's terrific site, WABC Musicradio 77, which also has the PAMS jingles for the station (my favorite being the one that ended all the songs, the WABC chime).

Message: 2 Date: Sun, 25 May 2003 08:11:52 EDT From: David Bell Subject: Re: Heaven Scent & other commercial jingles The Chiffons singing a jingle? But I've never heard either of them, despite being a huge fan of this fabulous group. Is there any chance of having their renditions for Great Shakes or H.I.S. jeans played to musica? Just when you thought you'd heard everything by a group something like this news comes along. David. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

It's your turn to > tell me what you have and remember in your collections on these > lines, ok? Do it, or I'll give you a nice Hawaiian punch! My favourite jingles (I don't know if they were ever used) are on the Poptones Curt Boettcher and Millennium CDs, the songs Wearing Levis and Stretch Levis - they did several short songs in different styles, all on the theme of "Wearing Levis is better than wearing pants" One jingle that is *VERY* different is Murry Wilson's rejected jingle for Kentucky Fried Chicken... -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 5 Date: Sun, 25 May 2003 18:23:14 +0000 From: Stuffed Animal Subject: Duane Eddy's Rebelettes Does anyone know who the girl singers are on the Duane Eddy hits "My Baby Plays The Same Old Song On His Guitar All Night Long" and "Your Baby's Gone Surfin'?" Joel Whitburn's Top Pop Singles book says it's Darlene Love and The Blossoms, but I don't hear Darlene's lead or backing vocals on these cuts. It's definitely her on "(Dance With) The Guitar Man," "Lonely Boy, Lonely Guitar" and "Boss Guitar," though. Stuffed Animal -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I got myself a nice piece of tosh this week when I snagged Irma's new italian Bacnarach comp. All songs recorded 64-72 in Italian. Splendiforous arrangements and presentations all.

Message: 7 Date: Sun, 25 May 2003 19:56:26 -0400 From: James Cassidy Subject: Re: Brian Wilson & Smile Neb Rodgers quoted the following: > He and his backing band the Wondermints will perform the Beach > Boys' legendary lost album -- or, rather, Wilson's 2003 interpretation > of what the uncompleted 1967 album eventually would have become -- at > the Hatch Shell in Boston on June 14th, at the Beacon Theater in New > York and June 17th at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark. I don't know what/who the source of this info is, but I don't think it's accurate. Although Brian and his band have performed several Smile-era tunes in recent shows ("Good Vibrations," "Heroes & Villains," "You're Welcome," "Surf's Up," and "Cabinessence," to name several) and may include several or all of them in the East Coast shows next month, the band has not yet put together an entire "Smile" package. When asked about it within the past two weeks, one band member professed complete ignorance - so it's unlikely that they would be able to pull it together by mid-June.

Wow, their female singer was GOOOOD, what is her name? Yes, Bob "When Morning Breaks" will be included. It's a great tune and indeed very timely. I agree, Dean Cannon was/is God. Apparently she recorded a solo single that pre-dates The Deep Six. It's featured on one of the Chu Takahashi "Dream Boy" CDs that came out in Japan on M&M a few years back.
