RARE & SCRATCHY ROCK 'N ROLL #041 - ROCK, POP, AND COUNTRY STARS WHO SANG COMMERCIAL JINGLES - Part 2
Some of the biggest rock, pop, and country stars sang jingles – those catchy commercials about soft drinks, cereal, clothing, cars, and lots of other products and services. Several superstars just sang jingles at the beginning of their careers, while others recorded them concurrently with their regular repertoire.
There’s so much fun material here that we’ve made this a two-part podcast.
And on part two, we’ll identify one of the most famous, yet least publicly-known female voices in the music business.
We'll also hear from the Jefferson Airplane, Iron Butterfly, Neil Diamond, Chuck Berry, Barry Manilow, Johnny Rivers, the Four Seasons, Vic Damone, the Four Freshmen, the Beach Boys, Buddy Holly, Sammy Davis Jr., Aretha Franklin, Jerry Butler, Jose Feliciano, and many others singing to sell blue jeans, chewing gum, restaurants, department stores, sun tan lotion, and batteries.
Just as he did with part one of this two part-podcast. Ken Deutsch, our resident “rockologist” and pre-eminent jingle producer, co-hosts. So, please stay with us more of what Ken and I call “Singling and Jingling.”
