"Lowdown Popcorn" is a funk instrumental recorded by James Brown. It was the third hit single Brown recorded in 1969 that was inspired by the popular dance the Popcorn, preceded by the instrumental "The Popcorn" and the song "Mother Popcorn". It charted #16 R&B and #41 Pop.[1]

The original studio recording of "Lowdown Popcorn" was included on Brown's 1970 album Sex Machine with added reverb and overdubbed crowd noise to simulate a live performance.[2]
