Wouldn’t It Be Nice To Have A Finger Of Fudge?

Harr…maybe some of you like it as much as I do + can somehow relate to it.

Track #05 “Wouldn’t It Be Nice To Have A Finger Of Fudge?”
(Cadbury’s Fudge jingle / Ad from the 70’s/ 80’s)
(The Beach Boys ‘Wouldn’t It Be Nice’)

..mixed by Mark Vidler // Go Home Productions:

I haven’t a clue if non UK residents know what a Cadbury’s Fudge is, or even know the song that accompanied the Ad and was prominent over here in the 70’s and 80’s.
Anyway it works well enough with The Beach Boys. A complete accident this one.
Just scanning YouTube for ‘commercials from the seventies’ in the early hours one night (as you do) and stumbled across ‘the fudge’. It’s pretty much acapella and I was after a mid-way break in the running order of the album…perfect.
‘Pet Sounds’ was near to hand…the rest is history.

  1. Yeah that was one of those iconic adverts, mum picks kids up from school………these days they go to the after school club, not sure if fingers or fudge are still selling in the shops. Whatever happened to Brian Wilson? Good Vibrations is still good song and sound.
