This is probably the darkest of the Supremes' many hits: It's sad and brooding and completely uncharacteristic of their bouncy pop hits. But it's still a stellar record: It features one of the best basslines in the Motown catalog.
Great vocals from Diana, too. I think this is easily one of the more underrated singles in their catalog. It even flopped in the UK.
This was the second single from their 1965 album I Hear A Symphony. I know that "I Hear A Symphony" was the bigger hit, but I think this is the better song.
