Popcorn is also what is widely recognized as being the first electronic music pop hit. In 1972, the song "Popcorn" by group Hot Butter made it to number 1. It was in fact written by Gershon Kingsley and then played by studio group Hot Butter. The almighty MiniMoog was the synth used for those crunchy analog bleeps.

The song has been remixed by Jean-Michel Jarre, Aphex Twin and a few more musicians.

The second electronic music pop hit was an edited version of Kraftwerk's Autobahn (in 1975)
