What piece is this?
« on: May 09, 2018, 09:14:52 PM »
Well, actually the piece is Bach sonata for violin and harpsichord BWV 1016 2nd movement.  It sounds like Bach came back from the grave to write a fugue-like piece based on a 1960’s advertising jingle (or something).  It seems like I’ve heard this many times on TV as a kid, or something like that.  I can’t find the answer after researching this.  Maybe it’s just my imagination.  It sure is a catchy tune; a toe tapper musically speaking.

Starts at 4:13 on the following link.

No.  Too baroque-ish.  I was thinking more like the jingles used in the 1960's for these:

•Slinky (1960's) ...
•Oscar Meyer (1965) ...
•Coca-Cola (1963) ...
•General Mills Green Giant (early 1960s) ...
•Rice-a-Roni (1961) ...
•Maxwell House (1961) ...
•Alka Seltzer (early 60's)

But not these.  Maybe it sounds a little like "Pick yourself up" from Swing Time movie (Astair- Rogers).  But this is not what I was thinking.  I thought there was a jingle that used the exact subject of the Bach piece I mention above.  Maybe not.
