FixCam: Campaign Jingles!

Note: Please upgrade your Flash plug-in to view our enhanced content.

The Fix has long been obsessed with campaign jingles.

Derided by many as "too light" for the serious business of politics, the reality is that campaign jingles have been used time and time again to sell a message or drive home an idea that might not have worked in a 30-second television ad or a speech by the candidate.

Examples abound from Sen. John Kennedy's repetitive but effective jingle during the 1960 presidential campaign to Mabel Lopp's ditty for Sen. Paul Coverdell (R-Ga.) in 1992 to the 2006 "write-in" jingle for Rep.Charlie Wilson (D-Ohio).

Those are a few of the campaign jingles that jumped immediately to The Fix's mind, but there are SO MANY others.

Always had a particular jingle that stuck in your head from a campaign past? Now is your chance. Use the comments section below to offer your own take on the most memorable campaign jingles. We'll monitor the comments section and try to pluck out the most commonly named jingles.

Have at it!
