Eric Swartz at Tagline Guru has compiled his list of The 100 Most Influential U.S. Taglines Since 1948. The criteria and methodology:
-More than 400 nominated U.S. taglines and jingles were sent to 100 advertising, marketing, and branding professionals on both the client and agency side.

* Originality: Have they broken new ground in the advertising industry?
