Less debauched ice cream music

This is from an old NPR story from three years ago:

In New York City, summer has a theme song: the loud, distorted and high-pitched jingle of Mister Softee ice cream trucks.
But as the weather warms up, a pair of Brooklyn artists is asking whether the trucks could serve up something sweeter.
Jeffrey Lopez and Lauren Rosati are holding an online competition — called the Ice Cream Headache — to come up with a better ice cream song.
So far, they have received 40 remakes and remixes of the Mister Softee theme — ranging from a Balinese take on the song to one rendered entirely by a human beatbox.

You can listen to the finalists here.
