"Buckle up for safety, buckle up!" I don't remember the whole jingle, but there was a PSA back in the 60s to encourage people to use the safety belts which had become standard equipment in cars. It's been in my head lately for some reason.

OMG, r125. I used to love this commercial - especially the alto's voice and the soprano's reputation (open wide!) - which pretty much confirmed my take on the reputations of many sopranos I worked with in the era.

The overwhelming majority are for kids commercials. Makes sense, I guess.%0D %0D I'm no scientist, but the school curriculums (memorizing state capitals, presidents, speeches, lists, conjugating verbs), the religious agenda (prayers, pledges, confirmations, mitzvahs, creeds), and our recall of pop culture (pop song lyrics, etc) tells me that ages 9-13 must be when our rote memory does its best work.%0D %0D You always remember what you learn during the awkward years of puberty.
