4 Unforgettable Jingles for Commercials

Oscar Mayer Jingle

Jingles have been with us for a long time, and some of them have been so unforgettable that years later, we still remember them.  What’s more, it’s possible for a twenty-year old jingle to still get stuck in our heads.  Here’s a list of the top four unforgettable jingles that America just can’t seem to forget.  (Warning: after reading this article, you may be singing one or more of these jingles for commercials all day long.)

Oscar Meyer

Created in 1965, the Oscar Meyer jingle is one of the most remembered jingles of all time.  If you know the words “Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Meyer wiener…” then you’ve been exposed to this popular jingle at some point in your life.  This is a great example of how a jingle writer can transform the brand of a company forever.

Dr. Pepper

“I’m a Pepper, He’s a Pepper, She’s a Pepper, too.”  Dr. Pepper launched this jingle in 1977, and countless people today still remember wanting to break out in song everytime they see a can of the soda.  The jingle is composed of simple words, but the impact it made on the company was incredible. Dr. Pepper anyone?

Coca Cola

When Coca Cola hired a jingle writer to compose this tune, they likely never imagined that people would actually be calling radio stations across the country to request that it be played on the air.  Although a slightly altered version of the jingle was later recorded as a song (I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing), originally it was simply a jingle for commercial that took off like a rocket.  “I’d Like to Buy the World a Coke,” put Coca Cola on the map in a way that no other advertising could have.
