Ads capture our attention in many ways, but few things are as memorable as a catchy jingle. At Something Great, we’re all about celebrating advertising’s greatest hits. While we often focus on the latest in our newsletter, The Ad Spot, we also have a soft spot for classics. The 80s, in particular, gave us some unforgettable tunes that are still recognized today. Brands like Juicy Fruit and KitKat continue to echo in modern adverts, showing the lasting power of a good jingle.

Now, let’s dive into the jingles that set the 80s on fire.
