Song of the Day: The Delfonics, “La-La Means I Love You”

"La-La Means I Love You" was released at the end of January 1968. Written by Thom Bell and William Hart, it was produced by Bell and Stan Watson. It reached #3 on the Hot 100, #2 on the R&B chart, and #19 in the UK. It’s probably their best-known (and loved) songs, and has been covered by a few acts, including Todd Rundgren, The Jackson 5, Booker T. & The MG’s, and Swing Out Sister. It finished 1968 at #23 on the year-end Hot 100.

    1. I was getting ready for Song Lyric Sunday, and thought of this because the prompt is “la,” but I heard it and said, “no, this one’s a song of the day.” It’s a beauty, isn’t it?
