Do you know the iconic Folgers jingle?
Well, it’s become a piece of pop culture as generations have heard the tune and now sing along with the words. Given the rich tradition in American music, aspiring musicians are being invited by Folgers to embrace their well-known tune and make it their own. You know the words right? Or at least you’ve gotta remember the part that I remember most “the best part of waking up, is Folgers in your cup!” Did you sing it too? I sang it while writing it! XD
Did you know that Folgers® has a long-standing tradition of helping inspire musicians to follow their dreams? It’s true! Not only that, this year, they’ve teamed up with country music singer-songwriter Chris Young to encourage aspiring musicians to create their own version of the iconic Best Part of Wakin’ Up™ Jingle in the Folgers Jingle Contest. Yep! They want to hear some creative spins on their little jingle!
Think you’ve got what it takes to compete? Or even just want to give it a go for the fun of it? Or heck, are you just curious what other people have done with this little piece of pop culture? Maybe you want to vote for your favorites? Check out this video, and then read on to see how!
It works like this:
- Submit a video featuring your best version of the Folgers jingle on the website from January 30th through February 27th. Please remember that your version of the Jingle must include the complete melody and complete lyrics of “The Best Part of Wakin’ Up is Folgers in Your Cup.”
- From February 27th to March 19th, 5 semi-finalists will be chosen and each will have a mentor session with Chris Young before the online vote.
- From March 27th to April 24th, fans around the country will get the chance to vote daily for their favorite jingle. Every vote automatically enters you to win prizes up to $10,000.
- Finally, in May, one winner will be selected to win the grand prize of $25,000!
So, even if you can’t think of a way to spruce up the jingle in your own way, it’s still a fun thing to check out and vote on, as well as entering to win prizes. Still, I think I’d be fun to try my hand at the jingle too!
