How Slogan You Go?

Typing in key words to generate comical slogans is the goal of the The Sloganizer.

What if condoms had corporate sponsorship?

It should come as no surprise to anyone that I have previously posted a blog with this theme. Naturally those corporate sponsors would have to come up with some catchy slogans. My examples as well as those of several readers can be found at a post titled Condom Nation.

Now, what good are sponsorship and slogans if you don't have a catchy jingle or theme song? A condom manufacturer would want a song that would compel the consumers to buy their product. Rather than try to come up with an original song or lyrics, it makes perfect sense that a well known and certainly popular hit song would be chosen.

Please excuse me, but I'm finding it hard to come up some possible song titles that fit into this category without generating innuendos.

Come Softly To Me -Fleetwoods
Pushing Too Hard -the Seeds
Monster in My Pants -the B52s
Satisfaction -Rolling Stones
Rocket Man -Elton John
Get On Up -Esquires
Eli's Coming -Three Dog Night
Whip It -Devo
I Want Candy -Bow Wow Wow
I Touch Myself -Divinyls
Who Let the Dogs Out -Baha Men

That's a few that I could think of off the top of my head. Here I'll turn the reins over to you, readers. Those of you younger than the Baby Boomer age should be able to come up with some "juicy" titles from the 80s to the present.

Let's see what you got! What song would be cute when he "slips a suit on the flute?"

From across the pond, compliments of Queenie:
Slow Hand -Pointer Sisters
All Night Long -Lionel Richie
Do Do Do The Funky Chicken - the Goodies
Stop In The Name of Love -Diana Ross & the Supremes
From Iowa, Sudiegirl reminds me that all good things must come to an end:
Flushed From the Bathroom of Your Heart -Johnny Cash
Serena Joy, my Verbicidal Tendencies partner from the Commonwealth of Virginia came up with one by an artist coincidentally nicknamed "the Pelvis":
Rubbernecking -Elvis Presley
From Florida, Christina has these offerings:
Start Me Up; Don't Stop; Let's Spend the Night Together -Rolling Stones
Love in an Elevator; Walk This Way - Aerosmith
Love By the Dashboard Lights - Meatloaf
Now how could I have not thought of this one when I started this post?:
Let It All Hang Out -the Hombres

Queenie - good ones, especially "All Night Long."

Hale McKay said...

Sudie, - Excellent! I didn't think about the aftermath.

Serena said...

Hmmm. Let me give this some thought. Right off the top of my head, though, I can think of ... "Rubbernecking."

Hale McKay said...

Ah, SJ, an Elvis tune. Of course! Good one.

Boy, these songs make me hot.

Or not.

Christina said...

The Rolling Stones: Let's Spend the Night Together; Start Me Up; Don't Stop

Meatloaf: Paradise By the Dashboard Light
