I download some interesting music on eMule, named "Jean Michel Jarre-Popcorn". when I listened, I saw that the name was wrong. JMJ doesn't have any song named Popcorn. A fast search on Google returned in some Krafwerk references (some vocals effects are seemly). After all, who is the author of Popcorn? In wich album? When?
Observation: This song is the same of Crazy Frog (:x ), but in some GREAT electronic performance.

Yes It's true Jarre did a cover of Popcorn. But he made it under the name of Jammie Jefferson. Good thing about the single was on the other side which was an Early version of Bridge of Promises called "Blackbird".

I'm not really a fan of those old versions... that is, the first two versions of it by Gershon Kingsley were awesome but the others are kind of boring IMO. I do like the M&H Band versions, though, but it's somewhat of a shame that all these new versions are of the Hot Butter version instead of the very original

Well...Hot Butter's cover of the song may not be the original, but for me at least, it's the definitive one....I can remember in about 1970 (cough, wheeze) my stepmother bringing home the 45rpm single of the Hot Butter version; she told me the clerk in the record shop said, "This is the modern sound of music" or something like that! Ah, nostalgia...
