Description : my cover a collab the Legendary Mr Funktastic asked me to sing on this iconic track that defined the 80s Joe has been ill and he reached out to me to help jumpstart his return to music, he told me ive got drive and passion, i was both blown away and honoured by his offer, he is the Godfather of Funk on LM. ive pimped this up added sauce gravy mayo and pickle, ive dimestopped it. remember guys always a small d for brand dimestop, it means a lot to me its not capitalised. Check Joe's intrumental

If you have time take a listen and give dimestop some feedback.

Wow, that was great! I loved the intro with the telephone, nice idea!

thankyou so much this was when i very first started to sing and was really inexperienced, i do a lot of genres but mainly rap, its also really nice to have a new face in featured too, good luck with your army application, my son in law is a soldier and my nephew has just become a red beret so best wishes

Hey Paul, I've been away for a few months trekking around up north. So, I come back to LM for the first time and the first thing I see was THIS! This was not what I was expecting! lol

Of course, kick*ss job my man. As memeified as this song is, it's actually not an easy sing. I discovered that when getting strongarmed into singing it at karaoke one time!

dimestop replied 4th Sep 2022 - 1 year ago
great to see you about Cam, hope you had a good time up north. i'll have a go at anything, i love to play a part in the community. we've built a friendly home for people to come share and learn and most of all to have good fun.
your also very true about it being a difficult sing. i know i'll never be a good singer, but i will always accept challenges. hope your about for a while and we get to here something from you bro
Ludwigbroo 2nd Sep 2022 22:12 - 1 year ago
remove vocals and u might have a hit
dimestop replied 2nd Sep 2022 - 1 year ago
thanks for the feedback Ludwig, the instrumental is on the next page, and to let you in to a little secret, we're not looking for a hit. checked you out to bro, i see your not looking for one either
RitajustRita 2nd Sep 2022 21:49 - 1 year ago
Nope we never gonna give you up.
So you start to sing all genres now.
Hats off for you paul and also for mister Joe Funktastic.
I didd try what you do but oh my i think when i start to upload my singing Lm will take all his members except me and will secretly continue under another name
dimestop replied 2nd Sep 2022 - 1 year ago
thanks Rita, just commented on your new one, had a great laugh with this Joes music was great, i cant believe im not scaring everyone away to other sites, but i just have fun as you know, LM would miss you if you were not about your our lady beatmaker
xstokes 1st Sep 2022 21:50 - 1 year ago
that Joe’s a wise man, i just listened to the instr so i knew you were working with treasure, and look what you done, man! this has my engine purring, and i know this has gotta be healing for mr funk as well. pure gold, Paul.
dimestop replied 1st Sep 2022 - 1 year ago
bro im still purring from your creativity, thanks for a lovely comment and showing Joe love here too, he gave me gold like you said, music is the healing soul that binds our community, it also tugs on the heart when you know a colleague is unwell, and i truly mean that even though were only virtual friends, ive made strong bonds with people here, i dont want that to end, you all contribute to my life and make me feel happy, if im down i listen to you guys not the radio
2Sisters 1st Sep 2022 17:30 - 1 year ago
When I heard the intro I thought it was something by the Surpreams or something. I think it's a well done homage to the souling 80s. A bit specific maybe but well done. Its a pleasure. LG Manuela
dimestop replied 1st Sep 2022 - 1 year ago
thankyou so much Manuela, i had fun with this. its nice to see you around again hopefully something new from you will come. i appreciate your time thanks

Timing is a lil off, but still nice work.
dimestop replied 30th Aug 2022 - 1 year ago
cheers bro i tried to be different thought i done ok with 5 sets of vox to mess with, its a big track to cover, its iconic but worth every minute, i had fun all the way with it
BaoBou 30th Aug 2022 15:24 - 1 year ago
Hello my Brummie friend, that's a super cool collab you have there. Great fun to hear a familiar track in a new way!
dimestop replied 30th Aug 2022 - 1 year ago
haha, im really a smoggie(Middlesbrough)mate, still talk like one too, moved to Brum 36 years ago, when i finished on the holiday camps, ex wifes home city, but i consider myself an honorary Brummie tbf. both my kids are brummies and my grand kids.
this was a big arse cover but i so enjoyed it. how many of us would really admit we love the original :))

CINCOCENT 29th Aug 2022 23:35 - 1 year ago
Cool man you always got that confidence but I'm telling you you got to try some software to make your voice sound better audacity or something if you really into singing you know what I mean
dimestop replied 30th Aug 2022 - 1 year ago
im trying different things my G, and i can change my voice quite a bit, but friends tell me its defeating the object, they said if it dont sound like you whats the with them on that. i do all my vocals in audacity, ive got quite a bit of software, i just put everything together in fruity loops i love having a sing but dont take myself seriously. i think my voice is lousy tbf but i can write good vocals, no one else to sing them but me. maybe someone might sing for me one day, i live in hope though mate
Modnex 29th Aug 2022 16:44 - 1 year ago
Great collab -- thought I got ricked roll while listening to it, but I was all for it this time. You guys did great, I enjoyed the vocals and the instrumental. I'm sorry to hear about Joe, I wish him all the best. I'm happy you're both keeping the music alive! Thanks for sharing!!
dimestop replied 29th Aug 2022 - 1 year ago
thanks mate, i was really happy with how this came together, Rick-Rolling LM. nice comment for Joe. he's not finished with music just has to slow down a little, he's gets tired because of his illness but it wont stop him from bringing more class to us. ive just commented on yours with Danke, well done bro, your vox are great. thanks for the comment and listen we both appreciate it
Zootman 28th Aug 2022 09:53 - 1 year ago
dimestep in the house woohoo. You guys did a fantastic job. Paul your vox are warm and sound really confident. I can hear how much fun you were having! Nailed it in the mix too man.
dimestop replied 28th Aug 2022 - 1 year ago
hey thanks for the great comment Chris, its certainly a massive track to cover, i was blown away by Joe's offer and just went for it, i usually switch the volume down and add fx when i sing :)) this time i switched it up and added a soundgoodizer to get it pumping, such great fun too,

I've been on Looperman since 2012. I never thought in all that time we would all be Rickrolled! HAHA!

This is awesome, man. You guys did a good job. I hope you had fun making it.

Take care, man.
dimestop replied 28th Aug 2022 - 1 year ago
haha V, i was waiting for that one, when Joe asked me to sing on a classic i had no idea what track, he introduced it to me with them very words, how about a bit of Rick-Rolling, i couldn't resist, we pimped it right up, thanks for the comment it left me smiling, it was such fun

pseudoble 27th Aug 2022 13:45 - 1 year ago
Woo Hoo - Nice one mate - I dont think this would be an easy one to sing which makes your effort even more impressive, nicely balanced, clean and crisp production sound - the whole thing is really nice.
dimestop replied 27th Aug 2022 - 1 year ago
haha nice one Ian, i had no idea what track Joe had in mind, he said he had a classic from the 80s all polished and ready to go would i sing on it for his return after being quite ill. when it first came i was like wow this is massive, what the hell ive i let myself in for, i was shit scared, Joe told me to be myself and do as i felt, so went with the cover but still payed homage to an absoulte banger of a track, and yeh i surprised myself, its not half bad, stayed true to the original and brought new hooks and delivery, i really liked the harmony overlay at 3.17- 3.47, no messing with panning etc this time straight up EQ on 5 sets of vox and a pinch of reverb. i had so much fun.
theHumps 27th Aug 2022 06:23 - 1 year ago
Rick Astley? Wow Paul, you are stepping out on this one. Big production number you and Joe put together. Give you both credit for your effort on this one, great song to begin with.

Honestly, i think it was the pickle you added that put it over the top!

Keep up the hard work Paul!

dimestop replied 27th Aug 2022 - 1 year ago
thanks Wayne, yeh such a big track to cover. over a billion views on YouTube for the original. i was honoured Joe approached me and asked me to sing on top of his music. its redhot, i wanted to try do it justice for Joe's sake, and i certainly tried to make it my own, thanks for your listen and feedback mate we both appreciate it
DijamMusic 27th Aug 2022 01:18 - 1 year ago
Wow, my mates together
Joe and Paul Hello.
The intro is a breathtaking English guy speaking it is out of this world guys.
The track and vocals are second to none.
Paul well done on the vax mate this is your best so far.
Joe as usual you're the eighties man, my friend.
Guys really this is a great track I loved it.
dimestop replied 27th Aug 2022 - 1 year ago
mate its always an honoured to get your comments and of course your tracks, this was a great honour for me. Joe is bright as ninepence all the music he produced, the English guy on the answerphone again Joe, and me on vocals The Legend said it had to be English vox he said my vocal is good and choose me he knows what he's doing and what he wants, i was happy he loved what i done, as i sent it him for approval, he gave me Carte Blanche as you do on how i played the vox. if your gonna do a cover, make it your own ::)) thanks for the comment Joe will be chuffed with them as he gets back into the swing again
kingmt77 26th Aug 2022 23:53 - 1 year ago
Paul! Rick Astley........STEP ASIDE! Our funkdaddy Joe Funktastic lit a BLAZE under your vocals. See, I told you The contract boys are on the way.There's a sincere kinda real joy in your voice. IMPRESSIVE! Great work Paul!

dimestop replied 27th Aug 2022 - 1 year ago
Mark thankyou for the great comment and the fav Joe is a magician the music was fantastic so much bounce, be built the bass himself 21 layers on that alone, he offered it to me, i accepted without knowing which track i didnt know what until i received it 2 days ago. you've got to have big balls to have a go at a national treasure, i think i done it justice, i paid homage with the second verse then just went dimestop, i particularly liked the harmonies towards the outro thanks again your comments always encourage me and provide drive
