Hi guys - my friends think I'm going mad but I remember like a radio jingle or some song or something that went "Scatter the Magic Powder in the Trash" and had something about an elephant playing a trombone!
I would soooo love to have some info on this music to restore my sanity - its been going on for years this debate!! Confused

No luck using those keywords on Google. Anything else you can tell us about the song? What genre, product commercial, etc.

I couldn't think of anything or find it either. Is this from the US or another country?

Sorry, I don't have much more info. I think that it was probably on Atlantic 252 station or Wessex Fm and it always played while they spoke over the top of it, at the time I was getting ready for school - 7.30 ish. I've almost given up hope but I know I didn't imagine it, although my friends are convinced I did! Crying or Very sad I think its from the UK or US. Must be.

Still haven't found anything on the song but did find a website with a contact's email address that you can probably write to for information.

And, here's another one with reference to the musician who did the jingles.

My girlfriend and I have been looking for information on this song for ever and ever. She heard it on the radio countless times here in Germany, remembers the little tune that came after a voice saying "scatter the magic powder in the trash" and something about a trombone.

I was bold enough to mail baal409 as well, but if anyone else has info I would appreciate it!

I may have identified the song! Circumstantial evidence is pointing me to "Scatter & Swing" by Lionrock on the album "City Delirious". I listened to a sample of it on Amazon, and although "scatter the magic powder" wasn't in the excerpt, the music could easily be what my girlfriend has been humming. Can someone confirm?

Here's the circumstantial evidence.

I have to come back and say THANKYOU to you all! Very Happy

After ordering the album and finding out that Scatter & Swing is the only single NOT on it (!!) I ordered the single, which arrived yesterday!! its exactly the song I wanted and I did a crazy crazy dance to it and left the words on my mates answerphone thus saving my sanity!!

Its a great track but it doesn't say anything about an elephant - it says "Listen, I can IMITATE a [email protected]!!! Embarrassed

Very happy. Thankyou sooo much xx Laughing
