I think this was only in Chicago. Anyone remember the Maurice Lenell jingle?

I never knew ours was abridged. You learn something new every day.

Just noticed the Provel thread is active again. No offense to the fans, but it always reminds me of:

There's no single cheese like Velveeta
Cause Velveeta is more than one single cheese
Like colby swiss and cheddar
Blended all together
For a (something) taste that melts with ease
Velveeta Processed Cheese Spread
(it goes on, but it's all a gooey blur ending something like
It's just so great when they clean their plate
There's no single cheese like Velveeta)

Ours was a little different from either of yours

Great big gobs of greasy grimy gopher gut
Mutilated monkey meat
Little Tiny Birdies Feet
Eyeballs swimming in a great big pot of blood
And I forgot my spoon
But I broght my straw

From the land of sky blue waters (waters),
From the land of pines, lofty balsams,
Comes the beer refreshing,
Hamm's, the beer refreshing,
Hamm's.

One taste will tell
That Maurice Lenell
Makes cookies
That are really good.

My favorite are the ML cookies with a drop of red, hard jelly in the middle. I'll bet Tsores's favorite ML is the round cookie with the red & brown swirls in the center.

Living in NY years ago, use to hear this:
"The beer born high in the Atarondacks
UC, UC, Utica Club"
and at Christmas always heard:
"We're doing our Christmas Shopping at Robert Hall's This Year"
Don't know why, but for some reason these 2 jingles have been stuck in my mind for about 50 years now. Go figure! I have been living in AL for 45 years and have never had a Utica Club or set foot in a Robert Hall's.

For an Oregon beer that was brewed in Portland, Blitz Weinhard:

Got a snow-capped mountain outside my door.
Got a beer called Blitz, don't need no more.
Got two good reasons for livin' here,
The best country in the country and the country's best beer.

Here's a tune I remember from some movie or TV show, and I can't remember where. Maybe someone here will know of it.

"There's always the good guys and the bad guys
Some things will never change
There's still sherriffs in New York and outlaws on
the range
They're still hanging them in Utah for breaking the law
Still burning their stills in Arkansas..."

How about Bucky Beaver singing:

Brusha, brusha, brusha
Here's the new Ipana
With the brand new flavor
It's dandy for your teeth!

But what I really miss are the Burma Shave signs. We'd watch for them all the way down US 25 on our way to Florida. Does anyone remember any of the Burma shave "poems"?

All you do is press the top
Instant lather on the spot
No messy brush,
No greasy cream;
Use Rapid Shave in the morning.

I always heard the Blatz song as "Its Draft Brewed Blatz Beer,wherever you go"
And we once were forced to buy a half barrel of Blatz because it was the only half barrel left in Madison,when the badgers broke their 18 game long football losing streak at Homecoming in 1969 by beating the Iowa Hawkeyes.We tried to tear down the goalpost but the damn thing was reinforced somehow and wouldnt come down.And the Blatz was terrible,but after drinking enough of it it did its job.i will never forget that day/night.
Now my favorite Burma Shave poem,circa 1961 or so,seen deep in Tennessee:
"He lit a match
To check gas tank
Thats why they call him
Skinless Frank!
Burma Shave"

And who can forget:
Aye, yi, yi, yi.....I am the Frito Bandito
I love Fritos cornchips
I love them I do
I want Fritos cornchips
I'll get them from you!

And you guys have got it all wrong, plus you're forgetting the very first line:

Boys are full of
greasy grimy gopher guts
chopped up monkey meat
contaminated parakeet

And I can't remember the rest...

Re: Burma-Shave:
I just remember this thread today when I spotted a book on a coworker's desk: "The Verse by the Side of the Road" by Frank Rowsome, Jr. (Stephen Greene Press, Brattleboro, VT 1965). It's got a history of the Burma-Shave company and its sign business, and the text to all 600 of the signs. No idea if it's still in print, but good luck!

Roadfolks,

Thanks so much for the Burma Shave responses. They made me smile. 6star, thank you so much for the link! It brings back lots of fond memories of driving to St. Petersburg. My Dad, whose unrealized goal was to make it from Cincinnati to St. Pete in one day, would slow down long enough for us to read those signs. Probably saved our lives. Vince, I'll look for that book.

Thanks again, one and all!

Sandy

"Give your face,
Something to smile about.
With Striiiiiidex!"


Betcha never even heard of Janie Fricke. She used to sing a lot of jingles in the seventies.

I was dragged to a Barry Manilow concert and he sang one:

If you wanna use Vick's when you gotta cold
You gotta know where it goes!
(crescendo)Stick it UP YOUR NOSE!

Can you believe the people who make Vick's rejected such a masterpiece?

That brings back some fond memories of Marine Boot Camp (has anyone else posted those words in that context?)

We had a cadence that went:

The prettiest girl I ever saw
was sipping bourbon through a straw

{I'm going to omit most of following verses for the sake of the, uh, more chaste readers, except the very last one.)

The moral of my tale is clear
Instead of bourbon stick to beer!

Son answers 'Of course I drink beer...(we finally see him)...I'm 35 years old!' Dad replies 'Well, I just want to make sure you're drinking *good* beer, son...'


Coming from Milwaukee, WI, where Stroh's was brewed (don't know or care if it still is) I rather liked Alex, the Golden Retriever. He did a bunch of imitations by walking offstage and, after another dog came on, the guys would holler, "It's Lassie (Benji and Snoopy). When the pit bull came onstage, the guys all were confused. "Who's THAT supposed to be?"

Is there a reason why you don't combine some of your posts, so as to reduce the amount of space they consume? You are the only poster on this page (Page 10) with 16 posts AND 6 more at the bottom of the previous page.. They could be combined easily using the edit button. Please consider using that device.

I do appreciate your cooperation, Thanks

How about this one that I used to hear when I lived in Los Angeles:
"Got too many tickets and a 502 (DUI)
Won't somebody tell me what i ought to do,
Can't get car insurance and it just ain't right
My baby won't go out on a Saturday night,
Keep tryin to win but I 'm about to lose,
Got to be a cure for the insurance blues......"

Here's one for the New Englanders.

Hi Neighbor! Have a Gansett.
Narragansett lager beer.
It has straight from the barrel taste,

Here's another from when I was a kid....
My beer is Reingold the dry beer
Ask for Reingold wherever you buy beer
It's refreshing not sweet
It's the extra dry treat
Won't you try extra dry Reingolds beer....

http://www.beercollections.com/Breweries/Wisconsin/Hamm_Brewery.htm Pabst hasn't been in Milwaukee for years now, though. As I haven't drank beer since 1977, I can't tell you about drinkability.

Oh, sing a song of Cap'n Crunch -
The sugar sweet cereal that's fun to munch!
It's great for breakfast or even lunch -
No amount of milk can make it lose its crunch!
(No amount of milk can make it lose its crunch!)
So all ashore that's going ashore -
Get Cap'n Crunch at your grocery store!

Gotta hand it to Jay Ward, he was brilliant. Putting this ditty into my head as a kid so I'd remember it years later when first hearing Gilbert and Sullivan!

I love when he does commercials that were rejected during a concert.

I also love Janie Fricke, who sang a lot of his commercials (State Farm's Like a Good Neighbor and Have a Coke and a Smile come to mind) and had a all-too-brief career as a country singer in the seventies.

Sort of kind of "off topic" here, but I've been putting myself to sleep on those sleepless nights by thinking of all the songs that include either food or beverage in title or lyrics. Surprising the number of songs there are that exist referring to one or both of those items.

Fun stuff. Also fun remembering all those advertising jingles.

I don't know if this counts-
Prince spaghetti ads with the mother yelling out the window. "Aaaaaant'nty!" Wednesday is Prince spaghetti day. Even now, I can't walk through the North End without thinking of that ad...

Some years ago I saw the greatest 'wish I had a camera' things - a big promotional inflatable of the Hamm's bear leaning against a can of beer. It was only half-inflated though, and the bear was lolling heavily against the can, flopping drunkenly in the breeze.

Grew up outside of Lansing, Michigan!



One for Paramount Potato Chips I saw some 20 years ago was *so* bizarre I never forgot it - the first part was simply cheap 16mm footage of some kids playing ball with some cheerful martial music soundtrack straight out of an old Japanese monster movie - then there's an abrupt cut to a stiff figurine of an anthropomorphized potato chip in Western gear being shuffled across a screen with some jolly singing cowboy soundtrack, presumably the chip singing although his mouth isn't moving.


Paramount? Home of Slim Chipply?

Do you remember the first ad they had with kids in it? They were playing hockey. My best friend Lorne was in that one. He lived next door to a Paramount exec. I thought it was so cool, then when they filmed the second one, the ones were you see them playing ball? Rememeber the fat kid near the bottom of the screen? That was me.

Anyway, the song went like this:
I'm Slim Chipply, the guy you see on the Paramount potato chip bright red packages. They're delious, and so nutrious, yes sir-ree they're pips! Paramount Potato chips.


Dang! Small world, isn't it?
Well, Slim is the Flavor Deputy, I've heard.


I am originally from Flint Michigan and those chips were the best ever! I know the company went out of business but I sure wish I could find some that taste the same. The barbeque ones were better than any I have ever tasted and the Original were awesome as well. I am living in Kentucky now, do go back once a year or so hoping that the old Paramount company will pop up somewhere.

Winston takes good like a (clap clap) cigarette should. Still sticks in my mind after 40 years. But of course it's the Marlboro man I miss... lol

Actually, it was "Winston tastes good like a cigarette should". At the time, grammarians criticized the commercial because it should have been "as a cigarette should". Of course, that would not have rhymed quite as well.

Oh, in case you are not aware of it, the actor who played the Marlboro Man died of lung cancer, many years ago. It sounds like a cruel joke, but supposedly it is true.

Brings back a lot of memories:

Nutter Butters: Have another Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookie . . . From BaNisco!

Fig Newtons: Man dancing in a fig suit: The Big! Fig! Newton! Here's the tricky part (does a little grape vine dance) The Big! Fig! Newton!

Beef-a-roni: We're having Beef-a-roni. Beef-a-roni's really neat. Beef-a-roni's fun to eat. Hurray! For Beef-a-roni.

Fritos: Aye, yi yi yi. I am the Frito Bandito. Give me your Fritos and I'll be your friend. The Frito Bandito you must not offend!

Are you talking about the cowboy or the guy they hired who looked like Mark Spitz (that's a certifiable fact that I can't certify) or the midget bellhop who called for Phillip Morrrrrayessssss! Johnny Roventini (the bellhop)DID in fact die of cancer, but was well in his nineties, and did smoke Marlboros for real.

I was in the hockey commercial for Paramount Potato chips. I have been trying to locate any copy of our commercial for 20 years. The commercial aired in the 70's.
I sopke with the goalie Steve H. and he doesn't have one. Of course Paramount has been out of business for a while. But I still remember singing that song out on the ice. Still live in GB.....Troy S

Pick a pair of six packs – pick a pair of Bud!
The summer of ’58 was the first year of my life that the Dodgers did not play in Brooklyn -- and there they were on TV, straight from LA, --- and sponsored by good old Budweiser – not a real Brooklyn beer.
Even worse they kept blasting that dumb jingle – “Pick a Pair of Six Packs – Pick a Pair of Bud! BUDWEISER!!!"

We made fun of the Winston cigarette commercial by singing this to the tune:

Winston tastes bad, like the last one I had
No filter blend, cause I (clap clap) lit the wrong end.

Just head off to Saint Louis and go to the zoo. For FREE! On the Busch family. Or think about the Miller Light commercials featuring all the retired jocks. Bob Uecker is singularly funny, but where did he go when the Braves traded him? To the Cardinals.

I think you got the Paramount Potato Chip song ALMOST exactly right. If I remember correctly, the third line was: "They're delicious, and so nutritious..."

Tedbear, actually the Marlboro Man was played by Chunkin' Charlie Connerly of NY Giants fame. He was from my hometown(Clarksdale, MS) and his wife Perianne still lives there.
