Am I crazy, or were television commercials more fun back in the day?
Remember singing along to the Oscar Mayer wiener song?
Or that Band-Aid one, “I am stuck on Band-Aids, ‘cuz Band-Aid’s stuck on you,” It is stuck in my brain, ‘cuz my brain’s filled with poo...ha ha ha I said poo.
“Two all-beef patties special sauce pickles lettuce and.....um.....a bun?” I guess I only retained some of that classic jingle.
Between commercial jingles and sitcom theme songs, I was a singing fool as a kid. I loved the Gilligan’s Island theme and hated the Love Boat theme (the Love Boat theme is just so awful and it’s not any fun to sing at all). Three’s Company, that one was pretty good, and I’ll always love the Addams Family theme and the Munsters theme song.
What jingles and stupid (no offense) sitcom songs were your favorites? Sing a couple of them now, c’mon, do it.
Okay, hum a couple then, weirdo. Doesn’t that feel amazing? Are you seven years old again, just for a moment? Yeah...me too (singing Sesame Street theme under breath..walking away slowly..).
