The Supremes First Hit

The Supremes are a legendary "girl group" of the 60's. There have been many lineups of the group, but the most famous, and the one that originally became famous, was Diana Ross, Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson. The Supremes signed with Motown Records in 1961, but did not become overnight sensations. In fact for several years they released flop after flop until they had become a bit of a joke around Motown. That all changed with one song in 1964. Where Did Our Love Go made The Supremes stars and was the first in a string of big hits. The interesting thing is, the song was not originally meant for The Supremes. Written by Brian and Eddie Holland and Lamont Dozier, the song was supposed to be for The Marvellettes who had had a big hit with Please Mr. Postman. That group didn't like the song, and passed on it. The Supremes didn't like it either, but were persuaded to record it anyway. And the rest is history.
