500 Greatest Songs of All Time

Rolling Stone's definitive list of the 500 greatest songs of all time.

The Supremes, 'Where Did Our Love Go'

475. The Supremes, 'Where Did Our Love Go'

Writers: Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, Eddie Holland
Producers: Brian Holland, Dozier
Released: June '64, Motown
14 weeks; No. 1

After eight flop singles, the trio were known as the "No-Hit Supremes." The Marvelettes — Motown's top girl group at that point — passed on this song, and the Supremes didn't like their own recording. Until it hit Number One, that is. That foot-stomping beat is actually two boards banged together.

Appears on: The Ultimate Collection (Motown)
