Subject: Gershon Kingsley, synth pioneer, pops his last corn

Written By: ChrisBodilyTM on 12/16/19 at 4:33 am



Gershon Kingsley, the electronic music pioneer who wrote some of the genre’s most enduring songs, has died at the age of 97.

Kingsley’s family tweeted that the composer died December 10th. No cause of death was revealed.

“We are saddened to share that pioneering synthesist and  legendary composer Gershon Kingsley has passed away,” the Moog Foundation tweeted. “Our love, respect and condolences go out to his family and loved ones.He will be deeply missed.”

His most popular song was "Popcorn," which became a hit when covered by Hot Butter, and again years later by Crazy Frog. I first heard the song in a Pampers commercial. He also did "Baroque Hoedown."
