On the same morning we discussed Capacitors in bed (see yesterday post),

"So round, so firm, so tightly packed. So free and easy on the draw."

I said "WHAT???" 

Do any of you know what this is? I did not

It was an advertisement for Lucky Strike cigarettes from the early 40's... He has no idea why he remembers it or why it suddenly popped from his mouth.

We think he remembers it because this song was on the hit list for 21 days when he was growing up. it is made with slogans from all the ads during 1947.
Personally I think the ad below is why he remembers it, NOT the song you will hear below the ad
.. IF your ears can stand it..

Skinny girls in bikinis either make a guy remember or make a guy forget...lol

LoL, I am sure he remembers the ad more than the song.

I have to say the song is not familiar to me. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

He remembers it because of the pretty girl! I never heard that group, but they really need coffee instead of cigarettes! They are falling asleep at the mike. Yes, isn't it funny, the useless things we remember? Here is something I have remembered all my life, I am not reading anything; all in my head. "Crest has been shown to be an effective decay preventing dentifrice when used in a conscientiously applied program of oral hygiene and regular professional care." WHAT THE... WHY did something like this stick in my head fifty years ago? Who knows? Of absolutely no use, except to impress the Mad One!

OH, MY WORD! That's my name on the Lucky Strike packet! Of course, a man would remember the ad with a beauty like that displayed. LOL! Thanks for your visit to my blog and your comment. I'm sorry I didn't photograph the two dogs at all this time. I have many photos of them from previous visits. Zak (the nose sticking out in the bottom right corner while Max is in our car boot) used to gaze at the sister of the Black-footed cat as she sunned herself on the patio table. She's since gone missing. Sadly. Have a great weekend. Jo

We 3 seniors are exhausted.

It seems unbelievable now that back then they were able to advertise cigarrettes as actually being healthy, doesn't it...

Breathtaking said...

Hello Sandra!:) Another fun post To reminisce about. Yep! I guess it was the pinup your hubby remembers. Enjoy your weekend!:)

Aha! Little wonder so many girls of 'our' generation were named Jo-Ann!

This song slogan is new to me; but there's LOTS more oldies that show up in my mind and onto my tongue when I least expect it. If a game show were to feature 50's TV advertisements I suspect more than a few of us would ace it!

Fun video. Strange how a song will just pop into our heads some times.

A Quiet Corner said...

LOL!!! That's better than Joe's mishap (?) this morning!!...:)JP

It's strange how random thing will pop into the mind.

Gail said...

I was born in '54 so why do I know it?

Ida said...

Never heard the song, hope not to hear it again (at least not by these people) - Loving the old Ad - (Sex) always did sell a product.

So they were selling cigarettes with sexy ads. I had no idea!

Those jingles are stuck in our minds forever! That does seem like a revealing swimsuit for the era.
