Imagine sitting in a room trying to come up with the right song for your demo. As you’re playing around with chords and trying to come up with the right words, the air is infused with the aroma of mama’s popcorn cooking upstairs. In a split moment, the light bulb flashes and you suddenly jot down the words:

“Pop, pop, pop, pop….”

It later occurs to you that you may be on to something – this could possibly be a great song. Well this is humorously how Gerald Levert gave birth to Levert’s 1986 hit, (Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop) Goes My Mind on their album, Bloodline with the help of fellow member and friend Marc Gordon.
