Chef Boyardee jingle
- Can you give a few key lines of im not to sure the jingle to help refresh our memories? WpZurp 12:01, 4 Oct 2004 (UTC)
- They're in the Chef Boyardee article, last line. THe melody is, roughly, G---F-D-C-DEDC (where the --- is like a half note, - is like a quarter, and DEDC are eigth notes). Does that sound familiar? Krupo 19:29, Oct 5, 2004 (UTC)
- Doesn't really ring a bel with me. Still, the author(s) of Chef Boyardee thought it was memorable. So I'm undecided.
- Well that's really 'cause I'm the one who added it. :) Krupo 18:45, Oct 12, 2004 (UTC)
The Bounty jingle is memorable in that you remember to bang your head against a wall after you've heard it a few times. - Aaron G. String
- Jingle is also a multimedia specification for carrying sound and video. Google pioneered it and then released it to the internet community for implementation else where 
Does this article really need three sources for the Wheaties factoid? Especially since that's the only sourced part.
Shouldn't "Shave and a Haircut, Two Bits" be considered one of the first Jingles?
I was redirected here from the Corporate Anthems page, for what I would presume to be various company songs. This appears to have more of an advertising bent. I unfortunately do not have enough knowledge to comment on company anthems with any authority, which is why I was looking for the information; but does anyone here have some?

- Can you give an example of a "Corporate Anthem" that isn't an advertising song? In general, I can't think of any companies that have their own "anthems" that they use forever and ever. Admittedly, some are long lasting, such as the theme for "Mr. Clean" which has been around since the 1960s, but it's still just a product jingle. Wahkeenah 03:41, 17 February 2006 (UTC)
- In Japan it used to be the case that there was a "company song" that employees sung on ariving and leaving, the idea was to enhance the "organizational culture"
See "Workers' Perceptions of a Japanese Company's Song" by "Norihiko Suzuki" I came here to see if it was still commonplace in Japan, if it had died out and if it had any prevalence in other cultures. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:00, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
For those interested in improving the article, here's a a Slate article about a Subway jingle that goes into some generic info about jingles. Jingle Hell: The diabolical geniuses behind Subway's "five-dollar foot-long" song. Hope it helps some. (Guyinblack25 talk 15:57, 24 April 2008 (UTC))
- As dumb luck would have it, I stumbled across another one at IGN. The Best Ad Jingles Ever. Not as useful, but a snipit or two of usable content. (Guyinblack25 talk 16:05, 3 May 2008 (UTC))
User:22.214.171.124 has been repeatedly adding a couple of non-English sites as "Examples", since May 2010 - I don't speak either language, but they appear to be websites for commercial jingle producers. WP:NONENGEL says that "external links to English-language content are strongly preferred", but we should be avoiding "web pages that primarily exist to sell products or services" anyway. --McGeddon (talk) 11:07, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
As I have been questioned about removing some links from this article, I want to make clear that the content guideline at Wikipedia:External links, and particularly in the section Links normally to be avoided, states:
Except for a link to an official page of the article's subject, one should generally avoid:
1. Any site that does not provide a unique resource beyond what the article would contain if it became a featured article.
5. Links to individual web pages that primarily exist to sell products or services, or to web pages with objectionable amounts of advertising. For example, the mobile phone article does not link to web pages that mostly promote or advertise cell-phone products or services.
In my opinion the links I removed violate both provision 1 and provision 5 of the quoted section. Moreover, Wikipedia is not a directory and Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information. -- Donald Albury 10:29, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
