So, when Jules is upset or crying, my go-to song to calm her down is Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance. I don’t really sing it though, I kind of do my own vocalization that involves loudly bellowing the “Ohh ohoh oh ohhhh” that you can hear at the beginning and throughout the song. I haven’t done any scientific studies, but 8 times out of 10 it calms her down long enough to go get her a bottle or change her diaper. I don’t remember really ever having a song for Jacqui, I just remember watching a butt-load of Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off” video while Jacqui stared and danced.
Since we’re on the topic of music, let’s talk jingles. Jacqui now has some jingles/TV commercials memorized and I think it’s hilarious when she participates in them as they’re on TV. It’s not like we sit her in front of the TV for hours on end, but she’s picked up a few which are highlighted in a comprehensive list below. Good advertising, fellas.
Menards – “Save big money at Menards…”
Kit Kat – “Gimme a break, gimme a break, break me off a piece of that Kit Kat Bar!” (Okay, so this may be because I modified the words a little bit after I feed Jules to “Gimme a burp, gimme a burp, burp me up a piece of that Mother’s Milk…” Not a great visual, but it fits so lay off.)
Nationwide – “Nationwide is on your side.”
JD Equipment – I can only share this video so it makes sense. I wrote and had this produced for the company I used to work for. I played it a lot when I first put it on YouTube and Jacqui got used to it. https://youtu.be/tyn5sFP6gj4. (You don’t need to watch or listen to it, but the link is there in case you want to. WordPress wants me to upgrade and pay to be able to put videos within my blog. Not happening.)
And my favorite… ARBY’S – WE HAVE THE MEATS. It’s simple, easy to remember and true because Arby’s most definitely has the meats.
Well that’s all for today, folks.
Until next time. PEACE.
