It's cute. I loved it as a kid. I enjoy it now, so that's how I voted.

Since there isn't a 'needs more delicious yellow chemical sludge' option I am at a loss.

As groundbreaking a novelty song as I can think of.

One of those annoyingly catchy little tunes that lodged themselves in your brain and refused to go away

Could also never remember whether it was Popcorn by Hot Butter or Hot Butter by Popcorn

Brilliant.

This, and Chicory Tip's 'Son Of My Father' were the real forerunners of all electro-disco, German new- and post-wave, latterday prog, Gorgio Moroder's magnum opuses, and The Flaming Lips.

Don't believe the press - this is the real scheme of things.
On the whole, I'd rather be in Wallenpaupack.

Giorgio Moroder did Son Of My Father before Chicory Tip.


And Popcorn was originally done by Gershon Kingsley, on this:

Alternative fact!

And Chicory Tip plus Gorgio Moroder were both artefacts (aliases) of Frank Farian, the Godfather of Modern Pop!

I like the bootleg X-Ray Spex version.

Haven't heard it for years, but I assume it's one of those songs that takes about five seconds to tap your foot to.

I owned the single and I always like it when it comes on the radio. So I enjoy it.
