Ice Cream Truck

I was pleasantly surprised to hear an ice cream truck on my block yesterday. I snapped a photo and recorded the melody the truck was playing. It has to be one of the happiest sounds ever created.

    That would sound nice with an 808 behind it. Four on the floor….

  2. I know! Everytime I hear the ice cream truck go by, there is something about that tune that just draws me in. I also recorded it one day. You can find my recording here – http://www.freesound.org/samplesViewSingle.php?id=60608

    I live three doors down from a playground in Bed-Stuy. When you have to listen to this 5 -10 a day at 15 minutes a pop along with 3 other melodies from competing trucks while trying to mix, then car bombs don’t seem at all like a bad thing.

    Amazed there isn’t a chiptune version of the Ice Cream Truck song. Seems like a perfect fit!

    that is genuinely joyous – the ice-cream truck near me used to constantly blare out ‘The Teddybear’s Picnic’ – it always had a melancholic feel to me though because I usually heard it at sunset…
