"Love Is Here and Now You're Gone" is a 1967 number-one hit single recorded by The Supremes for the Motown label. Written and produced by Motown's main production team Holland-Dozier-Holland, "Love Is Here and Now You're Gone" was the number-one song on the Billboard Pop Singles Chart for one week, from March 4 to March 11 1967.

The song, which depicts a relationship in the beginning stages of breakup ("You persuaded me to love you/And I did/But instead of tenderness/I found heartache instead"), features several spoken sections from lead singer Diana Ross, who delivers her dialogue in a dramatic, emotive voice. Matching the song's drama influences is an instrumental track, featuring a prominent harpsichord and strings, which recalls both a Hollywood film score and The Left Banke's recently popularized "Baroque rock."

"Love is Here" was primarily recorded in Los Angeles, California, thousands of miles away from Motown's regular Hitsville USA recording studio, because Holland-Dozier-Holland wanted a different feel for the record than the typical Supremes sound. Lyricist Eddie Holland names "Love is Here" as his favorite Supremes song.

A number-one hit on both the US pop and R&B charts, it was also a #6 hit in the United World Chart. "Love Is Here and Now You're Gone" was the second single from the Supremes' album "The Supremes Sing Holland-Dozier-Holland".
