This Unique Song Combines 25 Of Today's Most Recognizable Advertising Jingles
Jun 2, 2015
Chances are you will recognize most, if not all, of the jingles featured here, which is precisely the point. Jingles feature short, catchy tunes that have one or more "hooks" that promote the product explicitly. They're designed to be instantly recognizable and to stay in your head for as long as possible, and over the years advertisers have identified certain things that tend to work. A lot of the jingles here rely on similar musical modes/scales that have a long history of use in advertising. Thus, with a little creativity in arrangements, and the occasional transposing to a new key, a mash-up like this can be created with relatively little difficulty for a practiced musician.
Talk about advertising overload. YouTuber grantwoolard recently uploaded this video of him playing the jingles to 25 different products/services, using several of them as counterpoints to one another to create an interesting new composition.
