“You Keep Me Hangin' On”
Yet another Holland-Dozier-Holland hit single with Motown, "You Keep Me Hangin' On" was The Supremes eighth song to top the pop charts. It was recorded at Motown's Hitsville studio over the course of eight sessions before the label deemed it ready for release. Its opening stuttering guitar figure was actually inspired by Morse code. "'You Keep Me Hanging On' was about a girl complaining about the guys fooling around and we knew all about that because that was what we did," Lamont Dozier said. "We considered ourselves to be playboys."
