“La-La (Means I Love You)” is a 1968 song originally performed by The Delfonics. It was written by Thom Bell and William Hart and produced by Bell and Stan Watson.

“La-La” was a # 4 US Billboard pop, #2 R&B in 1968 and #19 UK pop single in 1971. The song is one of the Delfonics’ most enduring recordings and perhaps their best loved, seeing a number of cover versions as well.

The song was featured in Spike Lee’s 1994 film, Crooklyn. In 2004, rapper Ghostface Killah also sampled “La-La” for his song “Holla” from his album The Pretty Toney Album. Nicolas Cage sang this song to Tea Leoni in the 2000 film, The Family Man.

    Love this song but I thought something was off about this version. It is not perfect and there are points at which the singer sounds like Tyson.
