Music Monday: Ketchup, Anticipation and Carly Simon

Posted By on February 27, 2017

heinzketchupThe Heinz Ketchup commercial from when I was a teen popped in to my head the other day … or at least the Carly Simon music part of it did. According the the Youtube clip (below), it aired in 1979 and I realized that not many born after that time would understand the “anticipation” of "waiting for ketchup" as squeezable plastic containers dominate the condiment container market nowadays.

She was one of the female music superstars of my era and continued to be throughout the years … now performing with her two grown children Sally and Ben. Of course it is hard to mention Carly Simon and her kids without also mentioning their dad … James Taylor. Thoughout the decade of the 1970s they were a powerful music couple with hits of their own as well as duets … and I enjoyed all of their music and still do … but  Carly Simon’s Anticipation is definitely one of my favorites.
