Smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy

February 13, 2015

Can’t get enough of Uptown Funk lately, and I have to admit that my favorite line is “smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy” in spite of peanut allergies in my house. It’s interesting how many brand names make it into pop songs, probably more than we ever think about. Sometimes it’s blatant like Paul Simon’s Kodachrome, sometimes it’s literally a one-liner. I have a feeling if I listened to more country, I’d hear even more, and I might end up craving Jack Daniels! Here are some of my favorite brand pop placements:

  • B-52’s – Love Shack – “I’ve got me a Chrysler, it seats about twenty”
  • Mary Chapin Carpenter – I Feel Lucky – “I bought a pack of Camels, a burrito and a Barq’s”
  • Ingrid Michaelson – The Way I Am – “I’d buy you Rogaine if you start losing all your hair”
  • Prince – Little Red Corvette
  • Outkast – Hey Ya – “Shake it like a Polaroid picture”
