MUGS GAD NOONJOWL TAO / PANDRON EDDIE

1. Song / One of the earliest to sing it.
2. Connection with the previous scramble, sort of. But this song was not written for the product. It just happens to share its name.
3. The song has been performed by countless well-known artists.
4. Some sing it high, some sing it low, some sing it fast, some sing it slow.
5. Aside from the singer in the scramble, the song has been recorded by Mother Maybelle Carter, Trini Lopez, Willie Nelson, Doc Watson, The Stanley Brothers, Renegade Bluegrass, Filisco and Noden, Kenny Roberts, David Grisman and Tony Rice, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and (together) Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan.
6. The song title contains the name of a soft drink (or as they say in some parts of the US a "soda" and in other parts of the US a "pop" and in still other places a "soda pop.")

That good old mountain dew, always a favourite of my dear old uncle Ajarden Spong. He never did touch the soft stuff though. And couldn't sing to save himself either, so this can't be right.

I wasted a lot of time with Pink Rootbeers and Milk Rootbeers and Nine Rootbeers. It's possible to unscramble Sprite, too, but that went nowhere. Nice scramble.

The original phrase had "wanta Fanta". I think that's for the print ads for the similarity of "wanta" and "Fanta".

1. Song / singing group
2. Taking off from the last scramble.
3. One has to drink something, doesn't one?
4. It's a very old singing group, and one of its founders went on to become one of the best-known movie singing cowboys (and a pretty good actor, too).
