Charted: 23
  • He gave me the eye
    But I just passed him by
    I treated him unkind
    But he didn't seem to mind

    I told him be on his way
    But not a word did he say
    He just stood there kind of bold
    While I acted cold

    But when the lovelight starts shining through his eyes
    Made me realize I should apologize
    And when he placed a kiss upon my face
    Then I knew, oh then I knew
    That he won my heart

    So I quickly apologized
    Hoping he hadn't changed his mind
    But not a word did he say
    So I turned to walk away

    But when the lovelight starts shining through his eyes
    Made me realize how he felt inside
    And when he placed a kiss upon my face
    Then I knew, oh then I knew
    That he won my heart

    When he asked could he walk my way
    I hoped sweet things he'd say
    Instead he smiled kind of nice
    As he held my hand kind of tight

    But when the lovelight starts shining through his eyes
    Made me realize how he felt inside
    And when he placed a kiss upon my face
    Then I knew, oh then I knew
    That he won my heart

    But when the lovelight starts shining through his eyes
    Made me realize how he felt inside
    And when he placed a kiss upon my faceWriter/s: JR., BRIAN HOLLAND, EDWARD HOLLAND, EDWARD, JR. HOLLAND, LAMONT DOZIER, LAMONT HERBERT DOZIER

  • Jennifur Sun from RamonaLoved that sax part and the drums.
  • Jennifur Sun from RamonaProbably my fav Supremes tune when Diana was there - Up The Ladder To The Roof was my fav without her.
  • Elmer H from Westville, OkIn 1963 when this record was released, I was impressed by the production sounding similar to Phil Spector's Wall of Sound. Diana Ross's voice was like no other female artist of the time. Too bad the song didn't reach the Top Ten, but it did well enough & introduced us to The Supremes and H-D-H. Then next year----1964-----music history in many ways!
  • John from Cincinnati, OhDoesn't the chorus sound like it was stolen from the chorus to "Blowin' In The Wind" (a hit about a year earlier)?
  • John from Nashville, TnThis record and the Supremes next one ("Run Run Run") copied the Phil Spector Wall-of-Sound production technique. After the failure of "Run Run Run" (#93 pop), Holland/Dozier/Holland changed course and came up with "Where Did Our Love Go".
  • Kristin from Bessemer, Althe "ARRRRRGH" sound on this single heard right before the instrumental break was rumored to have been the Four Tops. Instead, it was one of the Holland brothers and Lamont Dozier.
