: My dad used to be an executive with the State Farm Mutual Insurance Company. Apparently, State Farm released a record called (I think) "Jack Benny Apps By" or something like that
I've got that record (but unfortunately, not where I am at the moment). It's called (I think) "Jack Benny and Music to Write Apps By". It's a record specifically for State Farm Insurance, and goes into a big Madison Avenue analysis of how they developed the State Farm jingle. Difficult to translate into the written word, but it sounds like a car horn, is a five-note bit to which a group sang "State - Farm - Insurance", and could be scatted as "Da..da..doo-wah-da". It's an interesting record for hardcore Bennyphiles.
