The Supremes - You Keep Me Hangin On
country of origin: Black America:Detroit
Music Genre:Soul Pop/ BPM :Style Motown Sound
"You Keep Me Hangin' On" was the first single taken from the Supremes' 1967 album The Supremes Sing Holland–Dozier–Holland. The song became the group's eighth number 1 single when it topped the R&B Singles chart as well as white america mainstream Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart for two weeks in the United States from November 13, 1966, through November 27, 1966. It peaked at number 8 in the UK Singles Chart.

You Keep Me Hangin' On was originally recorded in 1966 by the Supremes for the Motown label. The single is rooted in proto-funk and rhythm and blues, compared to the Supremes' previous single, "You Can't Hurry Love," which uses the call and response elements akin to gospel. The song's signature guitar part is said to have originated from a Morse code-like radio sound effect, typically used before a news announcement, heard by Lamont Dozier. Dozier collaborated with Brian and Eddie Holland to integrate the idea into a single.
Many elements of the recording, including the guitars, the drums, and Diana Ross's vocals were multitracked. Florence Ballard has a brief solo vocal during the bridge of the song (following Diana Ross' line, "There ain't nothin I can do about it...wo-wo-wo") where she sings the lines "Set me free, why don't cha babe. Get out my life, why don't cha babe."Which became one of the famous lines of the song.
