Earlier in the week, we put up a post on 9 Flavors of Popcorn, a collection of music videos for a variety of versions of the synthpop classic.
Once again, though, a Synthtopia reader, Ian Page-Echols, has topped us – finding an ancient WFMU post that offers no less than 79 covers of Popcorn. They cheat a little and use Prodigy’s Popcorn Techno Dance 99 Remix 1 twice, but it’s a pretty good cover, so why not?
Others on board for this massive collection include Aphex Twin, Kraftwerk, The Boston Pops & twisted children’s musician and techno pioneer Bruce Haack.
A few examples are embedded below; see the WFMU post for the motherload.

Kraftwerk never did a popcorn cover. The cover is by M & H and is often mistaken for Kraftwerk.
The most thorough popcorn song reference website I know of is here:
A lot more than 79, do I win? 🙂
Based on Aaron Meyer's challenge, here's 79 versions of Popcorn, remixed:
I like some of the versions with lyrics.
I made my own vocal rendition once: "You can eat it in a can! You can eat it where you stand! Popcorn is grand and that is the food of choiceeee for your land!"
I haven't heard a rap one yet…
Torley – don't be giving people ideas like that. I can hear the T-Pain version coming……
HAHA darnit, trying to reply but I don't see your comment live onsite yet.
This is painful to listen to. 🙂
Popcorn Song is an interesting site, even though I think the song got old fast after hearing the original.
