"Blow Your Mind" is the third overall single to be released from British funk/acid jazz band Jamiroquai's debut studio album, Emergency on Planet Earth. The single was released on 24 May 1993 on Sony Soho Square in the United Kingdom and 1 July 1993 on Epic Records in Japan, peaking at #12 on the UK Singles Chart.

Background[edit]

The single was later featured on the group's Greatest Hits compilation, High Times: The Singles 1992-2006, however, in a very edited form. Like both of the group's previous singles, two versions of the song exist: a heavily edited radio edit, running at 3:51, and the full-length album version, running at 8:35. The latter version has only ever been included on the group's debut album release. All other releases which include the track include the radio version. The b-Side of the single is an instrumental version of the popular Emergency on Planet Earth track "Hooked Up". The music video for the song shows a group of people dancing in a 1970's club, where Jamiroquai are performing the song to the paying crowd.
