Levi Jeans - Western Union Band Singapore 60s

This post is not an advertisement but the vinyl was. In the 60s some companies advertise their products on 45 rpm records and the jingles were whistled or sung by youths who love such novelties.

Levi's had its song recorded by the WESTERN UNION BAND, our own local group. "It fits my mind/And it fits my soul/And it fits my generation/It makes livin a laugh/And loving a life/And walkin a celebration/

I'm standing up/Callin to be counted/ Walkin proud in my Levi's/Levi's got me walkin proud/I'm walkin proud in my Levi's/ I've arrived/I'm alive/I'm walkin proud in my Levi's."

There were advertisements for many products and Coca Cola's the most well-known for "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing".

Hi Womad,
Thanks for writing. I went to your blog and couldn't write a thing but I find your whole concept so unique, agreeing with you and the quotation where Sylvia didn't fear to tread the Plath.
Wish I could a quarter of what you are doing with your blog. It's absolute creativity.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for dropping down my blog, didnt know if you manage to navigate through and read my entries though. (i've had minor complaints heh!)

Your blog's is wonderful! Even better than some that i've read before. Heh! Hmm...what do you mean 'do a quarter of what im doing with my blog?' My blog's is not really fanciful lah heh.

Just wondering, those Vinyl Records in your blog, are they your own personal collection?

Sorry to reply so late as I've just seen this comment. Some of the vinyls are mine while some belong to the Silver Strings bass guitarist Audie Ng.
I am still searching for some more as I find them unique.
Cheers,
Andy Young
