This CD is a real oddity, mainly because it's the first CD we've look at here at 16bit.com where you've actually heard many of the songs but probably don't know it yet.

Music For TV Dinners is the first in a series of albums compiling various happy, nondescript music heard in ads on TV and radio as well as driver's ed and citizenship films from 1950 forward. As such, they've also been used on shows like Ren & Stimpy and probably more than a few multimedia projects for the classroom.

The album is completely instrumental, but that means if you ever need some music for your own home video projects, this is darned useful. This music is the perfect happy, vaguely wholesome kinda of composition you'd want for driving around town, for showing people around your home, or for going out of your way to hide something but act like you aren't actually hiding it. It's hard to explain.

This album has been known to show up in the discount bins of some used music stores, and as such you should keep an eye out for it. There's really no better way to simulate what it must have been like to drive in the 1950's short of reinstating a culturally repressive way of life. Or perhaps just going for a Coke. We aren't sure which.
