  • Shameless rip off: songs about popcorn

    Alright, some of you may say I'm trendy, envious or whatever, or accuse me of "stealing" TuckinFrat's idea. And yes, you're right (just a lil bit). I explain myself: sometime ago, a friend of mine, who is dj and runs a night named Popcorn, asked me about funk / soul tunes & records that have "popcorn" in their names.

    I listed the ones I own, and after googleing a little, this is what I found:

    James Brown: Let a Man Come In & Do The Popcorn; Mother Popcorn; Popcorn; Mashed Potato Popcorn (parts 1 & 2); Popcorn With a Feeling

    Andre Williams - Do The Popcorn
    Apollo Commanders & Marchel Ivery Quintet - Lowdown popcorn
    Bill Doggett -- Honky Tonk  Popcorn
    Billy Ball & The Upsetters - Popcorn '69
    Brainstorm: Popcorn
    Calypso King & The Soul Investigators - Micro Popcorn; Damper Down Popcorn
    Dillard Crume & The Soul Rockers - Mother Popcorn
    Eldridge Holmes - Pop Popcorn Children
    Florence Ballard -- Buttered Popcorn
    Franz Auffray - Son Of Popcorn
    Freddy Hench - Popcorn Baby
    Gino Washington - Doing The Popcorn
    Hank Ballard - Butter Your Popcorn
    Highlighters - Poppin' Pop Corn
    Ike & Tina Turner - Popcorn
    Jack McDuff: Butter (For Yo Popcorn)
    Poets Of Rhythm: Hotpie's Popcorn
    Preston Love & Brenda George - Cissy  Popcorn
    The Mighty Imperials - Joseph's Popcorn
    The RDM Band - Butter That Popcorn
    The Soul Generals - Grandma's Funky Popcorn

    I know that there are many more that I could't find.
    Any suggestion, people? Help me, plaese!

    Many thanks in advance.


    Btw, many thanks to TuckinFrat for posting the "Songs bout chicken" thread, what reminded me of my friend's question.

    Peace to you all.

    Do they have to be funk/soul records? Looking at other genres, there's:

    'Pop Corn' - Joe Brown and the Bruvvers
    'Popcorn Double Feature' - The Searchers
    'Lavender Popcorn' - some psychedelic act I can't remember

    and of course, the classic:

    'Popcorn' - Hot Butter (or Gershon Kinglsey, or the Popcorn Makers etc. etc.)

      No, they don't have to be only funk/soul; other genres, as jazz, boogaloo/shing a ling, psyche... will do fine for me.

      Thanks.

        Or Ray McVay...

        Or Jean Michel Jarre's 'Oxygene' (which is Kingsley's 'Popcorn' streched over a whole LP, basically)

        Uh, there's another one on the tip of my tongue...but it's too late for my brain to be working properly.

                        That's the fellers!

                        Is it just me, or is the concept of lavender-flavoured popcorn one of the most revolting things ever?
