I have to thank my good friend Kris Earle for this find, "Snap, Crackle Pop Tunes" from the good folks at Kelloggs circa 1983. This was a mail-in promotion for those kids who just couldn't get enough of their favorite breakfast cereal's jingle. No narrative, no context, just medleys of commercial variants.
No matter what kind of music your child enjoys, there's a pro-Krispies song to enjoy. Medley 1 opens with a wholesome, gospel-themed version, then fades into the sound of joyous singing children before going medieval with harpsichord and horns. You know, for those kids who like dragons. Cue the singing kids again at the end.
Medley 2 is a strange but instantly classic piece of promotional fluff. It opens with that '80s rock groove and lots of overproduced guitar, and it's hard to knock lyrics like, "Cruising to the kitchen, got breakfast on my mind."
Then it gets bizarre. Really. At 1:14, there's a strange psychedlic interlude that sounds like George Martin's countdown for the pre-orchestral studio track of the Beatles' "A Day in the Life." Two seconds later, it goes country. Finally it closes out with perhaps the greatest New Wave song ever written in support of a breakfast food. Images of Lena Lovich and CBGBs will be dancing through your head, and Snap, Crackle, and Pop even drop in for some backing vocals.
I don't know what they were thinking, but you can bet that parents would be flooding Kellogg's customer service if they tried to produce this kind of Snap, Crackle, Propaganda today.
