I was utterly smitten with this track when I heard it in the film Jesus’ Son. It’s a gorgeously sentimental Philly soul-pop number with Ms Mason cooing sheepishly to her lover that she, “doesn’t even know how to kiss [his] lips… in a moment like this”, before a choir from an ancient realm of heaven peer over the scene and ask if she’s ready to learn, and she says yes she is, she’s ready, she’s ready to, “FALL IN LOVE WITH… [him]…”, and how the strings swoop and soar! For good or bad, songs will never sound like this again.
