According to my Dad this was the first record i had ever heard because he used to play it loads while my Mum was pregnant with me in Germany in 1973!
A great catchy piece of music that without the genius of Bob Moog would have never exsisted .
This track has also been used for various TV programmes and adverts over the last 30 or so years!
And when I heard the filtered breakbeat version in the mid 90s that Mr.Richard James aka Aphex Twin did on the Joyrex series I knew we grew up listening to the same kinda sounds!!!!
A classic piece of electronic history.

In 1972, the Moog was hot when Gershon Kingsley came up with this song "Popcorn". It was dancable, catchy, and featured the Moog. Suprizingly (or maybe not, this was the 1970s,) it became a bit of a hit.
