Jingles and catchy slogans are extremely similar. Not all slogans are jingles, but all jingles are slogans … except they come with a catchy tune! The great, or not so great, thing about jingles is that they get stuck in your head with no hope of getting out. When you read the words of a jingle like “like a good neighbor, State Farm is there,” you automatically sing it in your head to the tune. Well … maybe it’s just us.
A great slogan or a great jingle comes at a price, never getting it out of your head. Here are some of the top ten jingles that swim around in our heads.
1) See the USA in Your Chevrolet
2) Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz (Alka Seltzer)
3) Everyone Knows its Slinky
4) Oscar Mayer Wieners
5) I Am Stuck on Band-Aid
6) Snap, Crackle, Pop (Rice Krispies)
7) It’s the Real Thing (I’d like to buy the world a Coke)
8) You Deserve a Break Today (McDonalds)
9) Like a Good Neighbor (State Farm)
Perhaps there’s a few that you don’t recognize up there, but these are the best over the years, some dating from the 50s and on.
Our favorite is the Band-Aid jingle which some of us have been exposed to since we were kids. And let’s be honest, we all needed band-aids at one point as a child. It’s a jingle that we’ve grown up with and will never outgrow, because you’re never too old to get boo boos.
The point of a tagline is to be recognizable and especially memorable. The Slogan Slingers writers are great at creating a slogan that fits your business while still being memorable. The best part is that you get to choose which slogan is best for you!
