The Gap Band Awarded Writing Credit On “Uptown Funk"



4/2015

A change has been made to the credits of Mark Ronson's 'Uptown Funk' that sees the writers of The Gap Band's 1979 number 'Oops Up Side Your Head' included as co-writers of the smash hit single.

As reported by Music Week, group members Ronnie Wilson, Charles Wilson and Robert Wilson, as well as record producer Lonnie Simmons and Rudolph Taylor, have been added to the song's listed writers.

They join Ronson, singer Bruno Mars, and producers Jeff Bhasker and Philip Lawrence, as well as Nicholas Williams (aka Trinidad James) and Devon Gallaspy, who both received credits for the use of a sample of James' ''All Gold Everything''.

Now I'm eagerly awaiting this tune to join in the battle, which to me was even more reminiscent because of the words and ending the phrase with "up".

Music, sweet music, I wish I could caress and...kiss, kiss...
