VIDEOS: Six Jingles You Didn't Know Barry Manilow Wrote

[photogallerylink id=44858 align=right]It’s always fun to hear a good success story, and Barry Manilow’s got a great one.  After the singer-songwriter graduated Julliard’s School Of Music, he worked in the CBS mailroom where he was encouraged by a director to get into musical arrangement.

It was at this time that Manilow began his career in music, not so much as an artist but as a musician in what he called the “jingle jungle.”

#6 BAND-AID

Barry Manilow wrote the jingle, “I am stuck on Band-Aid brand, ’cause Band-Aid’s stuck on me!”

#5 HOOVER

Hoover rejected Manilow’s jingle, “Don’t you reach for the broom and dustpan or that old Electrolux, for dirty filthy grimy jobs Hoover really sucks.”

#4 STRIDEX

Barry Manilow sings “Give your face something to smile about with Stridex…” a pimple cream commercial.

#3 STATE FARM

That’s right, Barry is responsible for, “Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.”

#2 McDONALDS

Manilow sings the praises of the Quarter Pounder, “More people order quarters ’cause the quarter has more!”

#1 KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN

It’s a finger-lickin’ good day with Kentucky Fried Chicken and Barry Manilow!
