For a lot of people today, their introduction to my pick for this week’s Great Song came by way of Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown.” It’s The Delfonics’ “Didn’t I (Blow Your Mind This Time).”

Co-written by super producer Thom Bell and Delfonics singer William Hart, “Didn’t I (Blow Your Mind This Time)” features all the signatures of the Philly soul sound: layered horns, lush string arrangements, heartfelt vocals, and a sublime melody.

The production is perfect; even with all that instrumentation going on, it never overpowers the Hart’s lovely falsetto.
