What Song Does Your Neighborhood Ice Cream Truck Play?

Mine plays TURKEY IN THE STRAW

ad nauseum.

Last year, it was "Turkey in the Straw". This year, it's the hell that is "It's a Small World."

Is there an emoticon for feeling suicidal?
Ours either plays Beethoven's 9th, Mary Had a Little Lamb, or Hit Me Baby One More Time. Apparently we have an odd ice cream truck driver.

He also goes by amazingly fast, so its nearly impossible to get him to stop.....

Oh...I wish we had one of those bad-music-playing machines. My kids would go apesh1t crazy with happiness if we did. Unfortunately, out here in the pseudo-country, things are too far apart to make an ice cream route lucrative, so we're forced to drive to the local parlor.
Turkey in the Straw/Do Your Ears (or boobs) Hang Low

REALLY annoying. It's no wonder our ice cream man looks high all the time.

Side note: My kids don't realize the ice cream truck has ice cream. We told them it was "the music truck" and that's what they call it. I'm sure it's only a matter of time until they figure it out.

I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

The theme from "The Sting."

I have no idea what the song is...BUT...after it plays for a bit is stops...

Then you hear a phone ringing and a voice says, "HELLO" but is sounds like "HAAILOWW".

Very weird but it makes me laugh!

This thread reminds me of the "King Of Queens" episode when he buys the Ice Cream truck.

I haven't seen an ice cream truck in probably 12 years, but I think ours used to play "Little Brown Jug".

I once worked at a law firm with a guy who had driven an ice cream truck during the summer when he was in college. He had a terrible personality: no humor, no tact, no fun. No wonder he could stand the stupid music hour after hour.

Honestly, I would have to be high, or wearing earplugs all the time, to drive one of those things, too. I'm afraid if the current driver parks by my house I'll go berserk and start screaming and bashing at his speakers.

In Chicago, there was truck that played some kind of obscure Erik Satie-sounding tune. Whenever we heard it, my ex used to say, "ice cream, children. get it now, before life becomes a hell to you."

Yes. I really hate the ice cream truck.

Btw (but not off topic), anyone see "Trees Lounge" with Steve Buscemi?

My brother is 33 and to this day can't stand the ice cream truck. He was a very intense soccer player as a kid and all he can remember is trying to concentrate to make a corner kick, the whole crowd is slient and here comes the ice cream truck playing "pop goes the weasel".

A friend of mine told her kids that if the truck is playing music that means it's out of ice cream.
