I’m a little late for this because I was traveling over the weekend.
William Hart of the Delfonics died on Friday in Philadelphia. He was the lead singer and writer for the group. His songs are classics played on every oldies station now and forever. Hart was 77 years old.
Hart’s biggest hits were “La La Means I Love You,” “Didn’t I Blow Your Mind This Time,” and “Ready or Not Here I Come,” among others. His falsetto soars through all of those hits, co-written with Philly legend Thom Bell. They are magnificent records.
These songs are sampled constantly by everyone in music today. Hart had a lasting impact on the soundtrack of our lives. Celebrate his.
