Garbage Truck Jingles

Mood music to get you psyched for rubbish hauling

Ice cream trucks have cruised neighborhoods for generations, piping jingles that are heard for miles. Ice cream lovers get excited by "The Mister Softee Jingle" or whatever, and eagerly run for change and bolt to the street for your confectionary treat.

Garbage trucks just roll by at record speed, a rumble of diesel or chassis noise, a clattering of cans and lids, tinkling glass, and a hearty waft of redolence. If you ever had to gather a quick armload of pickings from your house to dash over to the curb, you wished there was a few minutes' notice to allow you time to dress properly.

So, how about some stirring music from the trucks? Put some smiles behind those throwaways, people.

See! People throw their own rubbish in. (If you can't manage it there's a bin man to help.) [Loris, Jun 01 2022]

Just exactly what you were thinking about, minus ... Cement_20Truck_20Mu...Ice_20Cream_20Maker
... all the parts you included, and plus a lot of other stuff. [normzone, Jun 03 2022]

       Brilliant! I suggest the Blue Danube.   

       Add to this some kind of super silencing mechanism and choreograph the dumping of cans to the music.   

       Suggestion: Open two browser screens, start playing the first link, then open the 3rd link and TURN THE SOUND OFF! (Very important) You'll get the full effect. It's like a garbage truck ballet which would be a great metal band name.   

       Enthusiastic [+]

       How about a Monty Python sketch scene?   

'I'm not quite dead!'

       They do this in Taiwan.
Loris, Jun 01 2022

       Well they don’t do it here and I love it so here is a nice croissant.+

       [+] The garbage trucks have a big playlist they can choose from, but the recycling trucks should be limited to cover songs.

       That's pretty cool [Loris]. Who knew?   

       Yes it is. Thanks for sharing [Loris].   

       It’s also very cool that people can just throw their own trash in the truck!
xandram, Jun 02 2022

       Not only yes, but an emphatic "F*** yes"!
