Retrospective 10: Popcorn 1969

"Kingsley was quoted in 2005 as saying that in 1969 he was listening to a popcorn machine and thought he could make a tune out of it. He spent the next day playing his Moog synth looking for a catchy riff. He then constructed the song in the studio entirely on the Moog, resulting in "Popcorn". Released 87 days later along with the album Music To Moog By, it sparked unprecedented success with it being heard all around the world and is still popular today."
