The Recording Session for the Chili's Baby Back Ribs Song

Do you remember the first time you heard the Chili's Baby Back Ribs jingle? It was probably in 1986, when the song, composed by adman Guy Bommarito, first hit TV. Bommarito was embarrassed about the assignment, because jingles were definitely out of style at the time, which might explain why this one stood out so well. Strangly, Bommarito was cut out of any royalties when his writer's credit was dropped. It was later used in the 1999 movie Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, which revived its popularity. Chili's brought the jingle out again a couple of years ago, this time recorded by the a cappella group Take 6. Enjoy this glimpse into the fun they had recording it. (via Boing Boing)
