  • Baby love, my baby love, I need you oh how I need you
    But all you do is treat me bad
    Break my heart and leave me sad
    Tell me what did I do wrong to make you stay away so long
    'Cause baby love, my baby love, been missing ya, miss kissing ya
    Instead of breaking up
    Let's start some kissing and making up
    Don't throw our love away
    In my arms why don't you stay?

    Need ya, need ya, baby love, my baby love

    Baby love, my baby love, why must we separate my love?
    All of my whole life through
    I never love no one but you
    Why you do me like you do, I guess it's me
    Ooh, need to hold you once again my love, feel your warm embrace my love
    Don't throw our love away, please don't do me this way
    Not happy like I used to be, loneliness has got the best of me my love

    My baby love, I need ya oh how I need ya
    Why you do me like you do
    After I've been true to you
    So deep in love with you
    Baby, baby ooh
    'Til it hurt me, 'til it hurt me
    Ooh baby love
    Don't throw our love away
    Don't throw our love away Writer/s: Brian Holland, Edward Holland, Lamont Dozier

  • Shiggin from CanadaMy grandma told me that 'baby love' is the love that you feel for the first person you love, usually when you're a teen - they can do no wrong so you love them regardless of how they treat you, it's an immature way of loving someone and it isn't really love, it's infatuation, that's what the term "baby love" used to mean..
  • Jennifur Sun from RamonaAs I recall that opening sound effect that sounds like footsteps actually was on of the Funks stepping on a board in the studio.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn November 18th 1964, the Supremes performed "Baby Love" and "Come See About Me" on the ABC-TV program 'Shindig!'*...
    At the time the song was in its 4th and last week at #1 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart...
    And "Come See About Me" was at #31; and twenty-five days later on December 13th, 1965 it would reached #1 {for 2 weeks}...
    * On the night of Nov. 18th, 1964 ABC-TV aired two half-hour episodes of 'Shindig!'; this one at 8:30 PM and then the 2nd episode at 9 PM {the show would expand to sixty minutes per episode in January 1965}.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn September 27th 1964, "Baby Love" by the Supremes entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #51; and on October 25th, 1964 it peaked at #1 {for 4 weeks} and spent 13 weeks on the Top 100...
    Was the 2nd of twelve #1 records by the trio on the Top 100; and was their biggest #1 week wise, none of their other #1s lasted more than 2 weeks in the top spot...
    They just missed having a thirteenth #1 record when "Reflections" peaked at #2 {for 2 weeks} on September 3rd, 1967 {the two weeks it was at #2, the #1 record for both those weeks was "Ode to Billie Joe" by Bobbi Gentry}.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyAs stated above this was their 2nd #1 record; but they didn't stop there, the next three singles they released all peaked at No. 1... {They were "Come See About Me" for two weeks, then "Stop!, In the Name of Love" for two weeks, and finally "Back in My Arms Again" for one week}
  • Kristin from Bessemer, AlThe Supremes performed this song on a syndicated dance show called "Shivaree" back in 1965- they wore blue chiffon dresses while singing/dancing behind a crowd of teens.
  • Kristin from Bessemer, AlThis exact song was used in the opening credits for the 1975 American-International picture "Cooley High", starring Glynn Turman.
  • Alistair from Vancouver, Canadai like men
  • Mark from Lancaster, OhDiana Ross never liked the name 'Supremes,' but Motown insisted on it.

    Her sister Barbara became a physician and, ultimately, a prominent professor of medicine. She was the director of the medical school at Ohio University. She looks a bit like her famous sister.
  • Spencer from Los Angeles, CaWow, I just clicked random song fact because I was bored and it took me here. I was talking about the Supremes at school today.
  • Kamasu from Las Vegas, NeI've heard at least three versions of this Motown classic. One of them was the original, slower and more sad version, which Motown president Berry Gordy had the Supremes and HDH re-record to make it sound more "peppier," because he felt they were blowing a No. 1 Pop hit.
  • Natasha from Chico, CaThis song brings back good memories. My cousin and I sang this for karaoke twice, with hand movements and choreography and all, and everyone loved it!
  • Nicola from London, EnglandThis song is a great song to listen to
