(1967)"Love Is Here and Now You're Gone" is a
1967number-one hit single recorded by The Supremesfor the Motownlabel. 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 4to 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 harpsichordand strings, which recalls both a Hollywood film scoreand 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 USArecording studio, because Holland-Dozier-Holland wanted a different feel for the record than the typical Supremes sound. Lyricist Eddie Hollandnames "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".
* "Love Is Here and Now You're Gone" was covered by 13-year-old Michael Jackson on his solo debut album, "Got to Be There." On the 45 version, it was the B-side of his number two smash, "Rockin' Robin."
