“POPCORN” (Originally done in 1967)
You’ll probably recognize this track but didn’t know the name. “Popcorn” (originally spelled “Pop Corn”) is an early synth-pop instrumental, composed by early synthesizer artist Gershon Kingsley in 1969 and first appearing on his album Music to Moog By. It was recorded at the Audio Fidelity Records label in New York City. Rumor has it that some serious tape editing with a razor blade created the original. No computers or sequencers back in those days. The title is said to refer to the short staccato or sharp “popping” sound used or to pop the music and made it “corny”, i.e., kitschy. The original title was generally written as one word, although some single sleeves present it as two words, “Pop Corn”. In 1972, a re-recording of “Popcorn” by the band Hot Butter was a huge hit in many countries. After their cover, it was often referred to as “Hot Buttered Popcorn”. The track has since been covered by a great number of artists [..now I’m blushing..] Enjoy !
