  •  Here's the old Coke commercial she referred to (7+ / 0-)

    in her editorial segment, when she was referring to Coke's history of inclusiveness. Yes it looks pretty cheesy looking back at it. But the song was really popular in a pop music sense (before it was made into a Coke commercial) and the commercial resonated back then:

    •  Actually, you have it backwards (6+ / 0-)

      It was a commercial first and became a hit on its own. They just changed the one line "I'd like to buy the world a coke" and released it as a single.

      But honest. Commercial first. Then hit.

      •  Same with Rudolph (0+ / 0-)

        The character and song "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" was invented circa 1950 by the Montgomery Ward chain of department stores.  For the young folks, it was more or less like Sears: working class to middle class merchandise.  The song has outlived its original sponsor by about 30 years.

        •  And the next time someone bawls ... (0+ / 0-)

          "God Bless America", recall that it came from an otherwise forgettable -- and utterly forgotten -- Tin Pan Alley musical.

          To flip the script on Shakespeare, "the bad are oft not interred with their bones."

        •  Our Montgomery Ward in Madison is now (0+ / 0-)

          Part of our civic/arts center, when I was a kid we got lego train sets there, and I got a Scat-Car, which was the coolest pedal-car ever.

          I've got a 1960 woolworths guitar too.

          If corporations are people now, can we regulate their behavior?
