For the record, I remember this ad: the first time I ever heard the words "Al Green." Later, I got to know his music, including his signature song "Let's Stay Together."

I think this was the same company that also put out greatest hits compilations for James Brown about the same period.

BTW Fuzzy: I think the announcer in this record spot is the late Bill Mercer, a.k.a.: Rosko, known for working in the NYC market at stations such as WOR-FM (where he resigned on-air) and WNEW-FM, where he became bigger and respected. He later went on to do announcing work for CBS Sports up to his passing in 2000.

I get McDonald's coupons all the time. I've even found a McDonald's out here in Vegas that accepts competitors coupons.

Interesting the two heavier rock hits he had with First Edition (Something's Burning and Just Dropped In)aren't on this collection. Lady always depressed me. My parents always liked him and my mom saw him in concert.

This is a great album. No I don't have this but I like Al Green.

I used to go to Erik the Red's and not only was I underage (and they never carded me) but I got in free. I've since heard the management, bouncer or someone else was told not to card or charge pretty ladies. I used to go with a male friend who later came out.

Is it just me or did this seem like a 50's vibe, not a 60's?

Interesting points by D4C. They've since pared down their menu choices in order to speed up service and boost the coffers, but I've never understood why they've never tapped into the coupon market.

I agree that "I'm Lovin' It" is long past its shelf date. The now-infamous 2004 documentary "Super Size Me" and the recent "pink slime" controversy certainly hasn't done the company any favors either.

Plus, as consumers we've become much more aware of what we put in our bodies nowadays, and even McDonald's is getting expensive (seriously, $4.10 Egg McMuffins?) I've saved oodles of money over the past year alone just by getting a Foreman grill and cooking my own meals that I can stretch out over a few days. (Then again, I live in San Francisco, so I'm not exactly teeming with options.)

"Anytime I hear that tune, I have to sing along...

McDonald's is our kind of place,
They feed you rattlesnakes,
They throw food in your face,
It's such a happy place!"

I remember most of it as follows...

McDonald's is your kind of place
??????
They throw pies in your face
They steal your parking place
McDonald's is your kind of place
Milkshakes taste just like slime
Hamburgers are greasy grime
French fries aren't worth a dime
McDonald's is your kind of place
It's such a wrecked-up place
McDonald's is your kind of place!

Spot produced at a time when McDonald's was a much smaller company, even the growth potentials had a great future.

The "You Deserve a Break Today" campaign certainly was a boost; this "Our Kind of Place" was the beginning of it, I suppose.

My guess of the present "I'm Lovin' It" was made at a time (c.2006) when McDonald's was still relevant but company-wise had slow growth, even it was getting business from the Super Size and Dollar Menus. McDonald's was simple, but by the late 1990's, ideas like the McLean and the Arch Deluxe were man-of-failures. Changes had to come and when the new synergies (including the McCafe) were introduced, so did the "I'm Lovin' It" thing, done at a time when most of America's economy was rolling and heavy consumer spending in the mid 2000's was present. Self-gratification was the hip thing at the time, and McD jumped on it.

Although the McCafe was popular and profitable, I think what happened was that McDonald's was on a constant remodeling kick and changes to the menu. Around 2006, many of the MCD's that were older were remodeled with elaborate decor. Within less than a decade, many were demolished and given new bare bones outside architecture with somewhat posher accommodations inside (i.e.: plush seats, stool-side seating, etc) and double drive thrus for efficiency. I think that constant remodeling pushed the cost of food up, along with inflation. Plus, other fast food restaurants were cutting deals in the form of coupons, something that McD are shy on.

And "Please Have Your Payment Ready" is nice, it's also a turnoff.

Other than reasons aside, I now think the "I'm Lovin' It" thing is becoming dated, along with "What Happens Here, Stays Here" was a few years ago.
