The NY Times has an obit for Ginny Redington, composer of one of the most famous jingles ever to worm its way into your ear.

And if it wasn’t hers, it was theirs.

In 1979, she married a jingle-writing competitor, Thomas W. Dawes, whose credits included Alka-Seltzer’s “Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz” and “7Up, the Uncola.”

They later collaborated on the music for, among other campaigns, American Airlines’ “Something Special in the Air” and the familiar “Coke Is It.” Mr. Dawes died in 2007.
