"Loop di Love" is a schlager pop song written by German musicians Dieter Dierks and Michael Schepior, based on the traditional Greek song Darla dirladada.

It was first recorded in 1971 by J. Bastós, whose version became a hit in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. J. Bastós is a pseudonym used by Rolf Steitz (born in Köln, Germany, 7 January 1952). Bastós also had a hit in Europe with "Holy Goly Girl", and later worked as a songwriter and as a member of the band Santiago and the duo Bogart.[1]

"Loop di Love" was then recorded by English musician and entrepreneur Jonathan King, who released it in August 1972 on his UK record label under the pseudonym Shag. King's vocals were treated electronically for the record, and it was arranged by Johnny Arthey.[2] The version by Shag reached no.4 on the UK singles chart.[3] The record was also released in the US, Australia, and in Europe.[2]

In 2001, Austrian artist DJ Ötzi recorded a German language version of the song entitled "Loop Die Love", which can be found on his album entitled "Love, Peace & Vollgas" [4].
