I remember stumbling upon this beauty many years back... Our Oldsmobile was long gone, but the tape remained. I think I always thought it was one of those tapes used to clean the play heads so I didn't really pay it much attention...
I'm glad I took a second look...
An entire Oldsmobile line-up starting off strong with the Oldsmobile Jingle
Man, this song has heart. So much Oldsmobile pride. I got a kick out of this song then and I still love it now. I can just picture Oldsmobile owners, wind in hair, cruisin to the theme song. Too good.
For some reason, this Oldsmobile theme song recently came to mind while at work and I just had to share it's glory.... as it turns out, two of my coworkers actually are Oldsmobile owners. And no, they never did receive their Oldmobile Cruisin' Tapes... Problem solved. Mixed tapes completed.
And for those who haven't been exposed to the Oldsmobile theme song, here it is for all to enjoy...
It's a feeling of pride that you feel inside.
