Jingle Blues

Remember the time when every morning, very early in the morning actually, we wake up to the sound of this portable radio. Locked and tuned into everybody’s favorite radio program. Where the host commentator proudly and steadily modulates his voice, broadcasting the most up to date news they can deliver to their loyal listeners, our Lola’s.

But ahead of that news bulletin the news program will put on air this “commercials” with their catchy jingles. I can’t help myself but laugh every time some of this unforgettable melodies and lines just come across my mind. I asked my friend Gerry if he still remember some of their lyrics.

And surprisingly, he did!

-------------------------------

Syoktong Jingle
Siva Vino Espesyal
Pampalakas ng katawan
Sa uri ay number one
Siva Vino Espesyal!

(teka para saan nga ba talaga ang Syoktong?)

Seiko Wallet
Seiko, Seiko Wallet
Ang wallet na ma-swerte
Balat nito ay genuine
International pa ang mga design
Ang wallet na ma-swerte
Seiko, Seiko Wallet
(pwede ko ito i-add sa aking mga “feng shui” ideas”, swerte daw eh!)

Lorin’s Patis
Sa ano mang pagkain
Nalalasap, nalalanghap
Ang sarap ng Lorin’s Patis!

Tiki-Tiki
United American,
United American
Tiki-tiki ang bilhin.

Filipinas Life (this one is my fave!)
Kung ang buhay di mawari
Wag mag-babakasakali
Ipa-seguro at magmadali sa
Filipinas, Filipinas Life
Filipinas Life Insurance Company.



Alaska (popularized by Sharon Cuneta)
Sa sustansya’t lasa
Walang tatalo,
Wala paring tatalo sa
Alaska
(“Crying Ladies” OST)

Liwayway Gawgaw
Liwayway gawgaw
Ang gamitin
Blah-blah-blah
Bleh-bleh-bleh
(Ha-ha-ha!!!!)

Three Flowers Pomade
Ang kilos mo
Ang bihis mo
Ang lakad mo
Ang buhok mo
Lalaking disente!

(ganito yata ‘yung…) Pepsi Jingle
The sun is up
And the world what it could be
Make this day of celebration
And with every brand new moment
Youre alive of being free
Come and taste the pepsi way

(saying din a namen matandaan)

Brenda Margarine
Sa Brenda ang sarap
Sa Brenda ang ligaya
Sa bawat kagat
ligaya ang sarap!
(tinapay na lang ang kulang)

Sky Flakes
Sky Flakes, Sky Flakes
Malutong
Kahit na anong
Ipatong!


Vos Brandy
V-O-S, Vos Brandy
Vos Brandy
Pang Romansa!


Pioneer Epoxy
Kung kayoy nabasagan
Madaling remedyuhan
Pandikit ng Bakal,
Kahoy at
Pustiso!
(nyek! Tama bay un!)

Kayo, meron pa ba kayo natatandaang jingles na nakaka-tawa?

Cheers!
