Since I've already posted Chest Pain's discography tape I'm mostly posting this for the Naw Dude side. I was kinda surprised that someone else hasn't posted this elsewhere (at least if someone has Google ain't finding it). If you've been here before the Chest Pain side of this split should be pretty familiar. Super fast, super pissed, super tight hardcore. The Naw Dude side is similar, but not so much so that you can't tell the difference between the two.

Hot Butter - Popcorn (Version Originale)

Artist: Hot Butter
Title: Popcorn (Version Originale)
Release: 1972
Label: Barclay Records

Track List:
1. Popcorn
2. At the Movies

Here's the 7" single version of "Popcorn" by Hot Butter from 1972. It's much closer to the Gershon Kingsley version than the M&H Band version.

This one is not from my collection. However it is from a FLAC rip of the record that I was able to find a while ago. I was listening to a local school district radio station a few months ago and this song came on. Normally they play more traditional 70's pop with a little bit of early 80's thrown in. Which is to say, nothing that sounds like "Popcorn". Thanks to Shazam I was able to identify the song. It took a while, but I was finally able to download a good rip of the single version. I converted the FLAC files to mp3 for convenience.

Title: Popcorn
Release: 1988

1. Popcorn (Butter Mix)
2. Popcorn (Reddenbacher Mix)
3. Popcorn (Radio Mix)
4. Popcorn (Jiffy Pop Mix)
5. Ordinopaso

I don't think I've been this excited about a record find in a while. Just a warning, this is not punk, at all. It's still awesome so that's why I'm posting it. If you're a fan of electronic music this is a must download in my opinion.

The song "Popcorn" has a bit of a history to it. Originally recorded in 1969 by Gershon Kingsley for his album "Music to Moog By". Hot Butter recorded their own cover of it in 1972. It was apparently the first electronic song to chart in America. Since then dozens of artists have covered "Popcorn". This 12" single by M&H is my favorite version that I've heard so far. Each mix has an Italio Disco feel to it that I think is perfect for the song.

For an in depth look at this song and all the artists who have covered it check out the Wikipedia page.
