Flashback: 50s and 60s jingles

Have you ever written a jingle? If so, I'd love for you to share in comments. I know very little about how these are done. Do you start with the music or the words?

Watch tribute to cartoons from the 60s.

Watch tribute to TV shows from the 60s.


  1. I love jingles! Do you remember the Shasta Soda commercial in the 80's? I want a pop pop pop I want a Shasta...It wasn't so much the jingle, but the guy who sang it on the commercial....Oh MY!

  2. Yes, Sharon, I remember that one (smiles). I remember the Drake fruit pies. I was always singing that jingle. I still know all of the words. Geez. Now that brings back memories. "Drake's fruit pies make you want to cry. Comes in apple and cherry and makes me feel so fine."

    Found the commercial on Youtube. Here's the link:
