Buttered Popcorn

Album: Meet The Supremes (1961)
  • The second Supremes single, Motown head Berry Gordy wrote this with Barney Ales, a white man who was a key figure in the marketing and distribution of Motown records. The song is about a guy who likes buttered popcorn over all else, which makes the singer feel a bit inadequate.
  • This song featured a four-girl Supreme lineup: Diane Ross, Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson, and Barbara Martin. Barbara contributed to many of the songs on their first album, but left before they hit it big. >>

  • Unlike the majority of their songs, which had Diana Ross singing lead, this song features Florence Ballard on lead vocals. Like the first Supremes single, "I Want A Guy," it failed to chart. It was the last single Ballard sang lead on. >>
