Every time I listen to a song by the Supremes I think “this is the best song by the Supremes.” And then I listen to a different one and think the same thing. They were fantastic. This Motown #1 was written by, who else, the trio of Holland-Dozier-Holland. Astonishingly, it lost the 1965 Grammy for Best R&B Recording to a song I’ve never heard of. Seems like theft!

This is one of Motown’s most famous songs. Written by Holland-Dozier-Holland and performed by the greatest girl group of all time, this #1 hit is probably the most recognizable song by the Supremes – at least in title.

Famously (and successfully) covered by Phil Collins, this #1 hit from the Supremes is among their best (and most upbeat) songs. Written by the legendary Holland-Dozier-Holland, Collins would also make it a #1 hit. Fun fact: the Supremes also recorded an Italian version.
