Popcorn - Original Version

by Susan Abraham

This is the original 1969 version of Gershon Kingsley's melody, Popcorn. It was a difficult find. I remember listening to a later, smoother vision that gained immediate popularity on the charts. The harmony here feels cluttered but vibrant in that zany way. Popcorn automatically reinvents itself and has the power to shoot through time, always sounding current and never dated. You feel you could race the world listening to it. Please do have a listen.
