JINGLE BELLS...

Before you think that I’m high on some yuletide spirit, let me correct you. This is all about jingles….ad jingles, that is! Often many ads remain fresh in your memory just because they had catchy jingles. So often, you end up humming them more than your favourite song! And indeed, they aid brand recall value. So here’s a list of jingles that are at the top of my mind right now.

* Doodh, doodh, doodh ; doodh hai wonderful,
Pee sakte hai roz glass full; doodh, doodh, doodh…..

Garmi mein daalo doodh mein ice,
Doodh ban gaya very nice;
Pee sakte ho once or twice,
Mil jaayega tasty surprise!

Doodh hai must in every season,
Piyo doodh for healthy reason.
Rahoge phir fit and fine;
Jiyoge past ninety-nine!

Charon aur, mach gaya shor
Give me more, give me more
Gimme gimme gimme gimme wonderful doodh
Piyo glass full doodh ! MOOOOO !

(P.S : that was the cow mooing!)

[An ad promoting milk]


* Zandu balm, zandu balm; peeda haari balm,
Sardi, sar dard peeda ko pal mein door kare...
Zandu balm.... zandu balm.

[Zandu balm].

* Vicko Turmeric, nahi cosmetic,
Vicko turmeric ayurvedic cream.

[Vicko turmeric cream]

* Sunday ho yaa Monday, roz khao ande!

[Ad by the National Egg Co-ordination Committee]

* Hamaaara bajaj…hamaara bajaj….

[I think it was the jingle of Bajaj Chetak]

* Zara si hansi, dulaar zara sa,
Amul- the taste of India.

[For the Amul range of products]

* Zarurat hai, zarurat hai, zarurat hai,
Miss mary cooker ki, jo hai kifayathi,
Khaana pakaaye jaldi-jaldi…
Zarurat hai… haan, haan zarurat hai !!!!!

[Miss Mary Pressure cooker]

* Washing powder Nirma.
Doodh-si safedi Nirma se Aaye.
Rangeen kapda bhi khil-khil jaaye.
Sub ki pasand Nirma!
Washing powder Nirma,
Washing powder Nirma. NIRMA!!

[ Nirma washing powder]

* Yehi hai right choice baby…..Aha !
* Yeh dil maange more…
* Nothing official about it…

[Yes….all Pepsi ads !]


* Nigahen nigahon se mila kar toh dekho.
Naye logon se rishta bana kar toh dekho.
Hasratein dil mein dabane se kya haasil hoga,
Apne honth hila kar toh dekho.
Khamoshi se kab hoti hai khwahishein poori,
Dil ki baat bata kar toh dekho.
Jo hai dil mein use kar do bayaan.
Khud ko ek baar jata kar toh dekho
Aasmaan simat jayega tumhare aaghosh mein,
Chahat ki bahein phaila kar toh dekho
Dil ki baat bata kar toh dekho …

[Airtel- not a jingle….but LOVELY words!]

* Chaar bundon-waala…aaahaa…
* Safedi tujhe salaam….

[Both are Ujala ads ]

* Lifebuoy hai jahaan tandurusti hai wahaan….
LIFEBUOY !

[Lifebuoy bathing soap]

Malayalam ads:

* Penne ninne sundari aakiyathaaru?
Ninte kinavil thangam pooshiyathaaru?
Alukkas....Alukkas…Alukkas…Alukkas…

[P.S: Alukkas Jewellery]


Will add more as and when I think of it....
So long....till then, keep humming !
