This went to #7 on the American R&B charts in 1966 – low for the Supremes. It did not chart in Britain. It is a Holland-Dozier-Holland song. I noticed that it sounds good even over bad speakers. Maybe that is on purpose since back then it had to sound good over AM radio on cheap transistor radios. Like how “The Twilight Zone” is made to look good on small screen black-and-white televisions.
This song appeared before in this space as a 1989 cover by the Good Girls.

The love bug done bit me
Didn’t mean for him to get me
Woo, get up in the morning
And I’m filled with desire
No, no, I can’t stop the fire
