Mary Wells is known for her collaborations with Smokey Robinson, but not all of her hits were penned by the Miracles' crooner. The Motown songwriting trio Holland-Dozier-Holland (Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier
and Edward Holland Jr.) wrote "You Lost the Sweetest Boy" in 1963. It was one of their first hits on the label; the following year they launched The Supremes to stardom with "Where Did Our Love Go
," helping Diana Ross supplant Wells as the "first lady of Motown."
