Popcorn Man

The idea for this song came after listening to a J&B song a couple of weeks ago. At the end of the song, I started singing "I'm your popcorn man," which had absolutely nothing to do with their song, but their song inspired me to quickly come up with the chorus. I finished the rest of the song over the course of the next several days. If I were a recording artist, I would consider this album filler, but it was fun to do.

The Wrecking Crew:
Style TEXASRK (added piano and solo and replaced the drums)
BB RealBass 1419 Bass, Electric, TexasRock
BB RealGuitar 657 Guitar, Electric, Rhythm TexasRockChop
BB RealStrings 660 Guitar, Electric, Rhythm TexasRockCrisp
RT2157 Piano, ElectricVintage, Rhythm FunkyGroove60sJohn
RT2636 Guitar, Electric, Soloist CountryBluesRock
Drum Loops from Drums on Demand


You’re looking for something
Throw out your measuring cup
I may be explosive
You’ve got to butter me up

I’ll satisfy all your cravings
Any which way that I can
Turn up the heat now baby,
‘Cause I’m your Popcorn Man

You're waiting for lights out
To bask in the afterglow
Lean back in your seat now
It’s time to start the show

I’ll satisfy all your cravings
Any which way that I can
Turn up the heat now baby,
‘Cause I’m your Popcorn Man

Nicely done.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Scott, super vocal and lyrics.

Great mix.

A real fun song that reminded me of John Brim's Ice Cream Man, but I liked your Popcorn Man better.

Scott...good fun & a good mix. I'm not a huge fan of the guitar on the left - a bit fizzy & could use a cab sim or some EQ but, otherwise, COOL.
SORRY Fizzy on the right.
I just checked and don't know why I typed left.

Innuendo? Is that an Italian suppository?

Sorry, I couldn't resist an old Benny Hill joke.

Thanks for the listen.

Scott,
Sorry to be late for the show. This was on my list from day one. Clever idea for the theme. Ace vocals. Brilliant arrangement & pro mix.
You have a very special talent of bringing music vibe from 80s-90s tastefully into 21st century, yet maintain originality and your unique sound. Very cool tune and thank you for sharing.

Misha.
