Ice Cream Truck Music Drives Me Crazy

Ice cream truck music drives me crazy.  Seriously.  Besides, I think the ice cream truck drivers in my neighborhood are selling more than frozen goodies.  I can only think of a few products that one would sell on a residential block after midnight and none require egg yolks.  Also, many of them play this song that starts with a lady from Long Island asking, "HELLO?"  The tune then goes on to feature a car honking and a policeman's whistle blowing.  Sorry, if you don't know it, you ain't gonna here it here.  I just can't post it.

What you will hear here are some modern takes on ice cream truck music.

On his album "Songs for Ice Cream Trucks," Michael Hearst brings the sugar...

...while Queen Frostine brings the spice:

  1. I feel your pain. We have the same thing here in Inwood. Late night "ice cream" selling, the truck with the "Hello" jingle. So irritating.
