Buy The Song

“La-La – Means I Love You” is a song of particular significance to William “Poogie” Hart.  Incredibly, it came about after his baby son, who frequently uttered the meaningless phrase “la-la”, prompted him to ponder that the young child may have been actually intending to say “I love you.”  The song became a tremendous national hit within a few weeks.  To this day, William Hart considers this his “biggest and best” song as well as the recording which initially placed The Delfonics on the international map.
