Tonight we have to play our own Popcorn ....

A weekend without Popcorn music ? Impossible !
So we play our own records. OUR recordplayers and vinyl are intact ..... :-)

It's time to play 1959 song The Mystics - Hushabye on a 1956 Philips automatic record player. Enjoy the video.


No Popcorn show by Theo Dumoulin on Laser radio today ?
That maybe so, but we play those kind of records every day.
Theo has a very high standard on his 'mellow' Popcorn. I think no-one can compete with him. But the genre 'Popcorn' itself is broader.
So instead of Theo & Brigitte's broadcast I present you here a personal compilation and I hope you will like it.
So please note, this is a quick personal compilation of songs I listened to last week ! You cannot buy this anywhere !!
Made this in a hurry tonight so please no offence if you don't consider some songs as 'Popcorn'. I know, I know, I just think these are nice songs to listen to or are special in one way or another.
The tracklist of my choice to about 80 minutes listening pleasure.

#01
I did choose of course this one because of the Youtube video.
#05
The broader side of 'Popcorn' also involves a lot of reggae songs. This one is from 1967.
#08
I wrote about this song and Joyce Blair earlier. Check the sex scandal with former UK foreighn minister John Profumo on my Blog. Use the search button on top.
#12
This Paul Anka's song is soooo well known. But do you have the French version ? So hard to find ! Well here you can get it !
#14
Idalia Boyd was the little sister of Little Eva (Boyd) who was of course the baby-sitter of Carole Klein (Carole King you all will know....) and Gerry Goffin. Doesn't this song make you happy ?
#15
Ginny Arnell sings about 'the important things' every girl in this world faces.....
#17
I have so much music. I 'know' so much (no actually...!!!) but I can't recall the original English version of this song. Can you help me out ?
#21
Certainly not 'Popcorn' but I just like this one.
#26.
The original by the Fraternity Brothers is a real Popcorn classic. But this one isn't bad at all. Maybe change the speed a little....
#27.
The above picture shows the cute Tracey Dey and her producer Bob Crewe.
#30
I have only six of their songs but in a very low quality. This vinyl is an example.
I would be very glad if someone has a better version for me. Is there a CD mastered from the original recordings ? I would be very glad to get a copy !

Nowadays every CD has a few so-called bonus tracks, so here are mine .....
#31
This is the same song as #04 by Garnett Mimms but with a different title on the label. Just discovered his recently.
#32
Almost an exact copy (but less 'sexy') of the original by Joyce Blair. Sung in French !
Can someone tell me something about Marisa ?
This song was issued on a Canadian label, so I suppose she's Canadian instead of French.
#33
If you like exceptional oldies this is really 'a must have' !!! I have never seen this somewhere else on the internet !
Have a lot of these kind of studio outtakes. Always nice to listen to what the artists were doing 'outside' the official recordings....

Of course you understand to replace twice the '#' in an 'a' !!

Pass : 070804

File is a small 75MB, 'cause the songs are only in 128kbits

Same procedure with the '#' and 'a' ...!!

When you see this in Google cache (or alike) you actually have to go to my BLog and this comment otherwise you cannot copy/paste this ! If you don't wanna come to me of course you can also write it down ...... :-)

Aaaaaa !!! Can't believe that you have Hello Jim in French ! It was on my Grumpy's list (oops...)
 
Halo Dupree,

Bedankt voor een zeer mooie samenstelling.

Groet
