One-sided advertising record for the Oscar Mayer company with versions of the “I’d Love to Be an Oscar Meyer Weiner” jingle done in different styles from around the world.  “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!’  (1967) . Put out by the J. Walter Thompson agency.

Track Listing:

  • Tijuana – styled after the currently popular Tijuana sound. It uses the “mariachi” trumpet over a “rock” rhythm section. It’s a sing-a-long.
  • Dixie – Traditional Dixieland sound. A basic rhythm section and some strong brass in the front line. In true Dixie fashion, everyone tried to get in the last note.
  • Bossa Nova – The cool sound. A lush guitar against a bossa nova rhythm and a gal who really delivers a song.
  • Gary and the Hornets – A nationally known rock and roll group does it. And remember, these kids are 8, 13, and 14 years old.
  • Motown – Soul sound. There’s a Memphis bass pattern around the hand clapping that says rhythm’s the thing.
  • Country & Western – Nashville sound all the way. That means at least four guitars, a lot of echo, and some ah in the background.
