You Can't Hurry Love
by The Supremes

I need love, love to ease my mind
I need to find, find someone to call mine
But mama said you can't hurry love
No you just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
It's a game of give and take
You can't hurry love
No, you just have to wait
You gotta trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes
But how many heartaches must I stand
Before I find a love to let me live again
Right now the only thing that keeps me hanging on
When I feel my strength, yeah, it's almost gone
I remember mama said

You can't hurry love
No you just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
It's a game of give and take
How long must I wait how much more can I take
Before loneliness will 'cause my heart, heart to break?
No, I can't bear to live my life alone
I grow impatient for a love to call my own
But when I feel that I, I can't go on
These precious words keeps me hanging on
I remember mama said

Can't hurry love
No you just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
It's a game of give and take

You can't hurry love
No you just have to wait
She said trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes

No love, love don't come easy
But I keep on waiting, anticipating for that
Soft voice to talk to me at night
For some tender arms to hold me tight
I keep waiting; I keep on waiting
But it ain't easy, it ain't easy when mama said

You can't hurry love no
You just have to wait
She said trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes

You can't hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
It's a game of give and take
You can't hurry love
No, you can't

Who's listening to Diana Ross and the Supremes in 2020?

@Matt C As I said, I saw Mary in March before the pandemic hit. No one is performing concerts during this time. No, The TAMI show was a theatrical release in 1965. They had been on other television shows before then. The first time that I saw them was at the Lyric Theatre in Baltimore, Maryland in 1965 followed by The Baltimore Civic Center in 1968.

kurtsupreme - wow, that’s amazing... are you still in touch with Mary? She’s recently released a new book. Still looks amazing for her age. Thanks for the video link, was the tami movie their first television appearance? Also, Where was the first concert you saw the original trio in? Must have been a thrilling experience.

@Matt C Yes, I still have all the original albums, posters, concert programs, and other memorabilia. I have spent time in the dressing rooms and hotels of both Mary and Cindy. I had Cindy's home telephone number in the 1980;s and have been out to dinner with Mary. Actually, I just saw Mary in concert in March. It was probably one of her last performances before the pandemic hit. I saw the original lineup of the trio in 1965, Diana Ross and The Supremes (with Cindy) in 1968, and the New Supremes with Jean in 1970, and with Lynda in 1972. I have probably seen Mary in concert 15 or 20 times. In that first clip that you mentioned where they are singing, "Where Did Our Love Go," it was from a film (T.A.M.I.) that was released in theatres in the mid 1960's. The show also featured Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, James Brown, Lesley Gore, and Jan and Dean. The Supremes sang a medley of four songs (When The Lovelight Starts Shining Through His Eyes, Run Run Run, Where Did Our Love Go, and Baby Love.). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLKwc45IGWY Here is a link to the entire performance of The Supremes from the TAMI movie. The other clip of "Stop!" was from an appearance on "The Hollywood Palace" which was a variety television show in the 1960's.

@Matt C It is fascinating how you fell under the "Supreme spell." When The Supremes would appear on television, they would sing their newest hit and then some production number or standard that appealed more to adults. Their nightclub act was geared to youngish adults (20's and 30's). I would say that the majority of people who bought their records were probably teenagers; but, the adults liked to watch them on television as well. Do you really think that Diane's voice in "Stop!" sounds the same as the "Love Child" voice? After Flo and Holland, Dozier, Holland left, the songs were very different. In an attempt to prepare for Diane's solo career, Mary and Cindy's voices were seldom used on recordings. I always thought that one reason for that was that Berry wanted to disassociate Diane's voice with the GROUP. By mixing up different voices in the background, they could experiment with Diane's solo sound and disassociate her from Mary and Cindy at the same time. Also, during this time, Diane's voice was starting to give out. She had to sing in a different key and in a different style and she had to go to voice lessons to save her voice. Gone forever was the nasal wail that used to cut through Mary and Flo's harmonies. I didn't really like any of the songs that were released between 67 and 69 like I did the earlier ones. The saving grace during this period was their visual appeal. During this period, although the sound suffered, the gowns became more spectacular and the makeup more extreme. They became slick, Hollywood glamour girls that ditched the "girl next door" image of Diane, Mary, and Flo. It was during this time that I really became disenchanted with Diane. As you probably know, Cindy was recruited from Patti Labelle and The Bluebelles to replace Flo. I was friends with The Bluebelles' manager's wife, Mary Montague. We would speak on the phone during this period and after she spoke to Cindy, she would tell me what was going on behind the scenes. This is when I was getting first hand confirmation about Diane's antics that I always suspected. The stuff that I was hearing back in 1968 wouldn't become public until many years later after various books were written about that time period. For me, the music of The Supremes died in 1967 after the departure of Flo and HDH. It isn't that I didn't continue to purchase everything that came out after that period..........it just wasn't the same or as good in my estimation. I did enjoy "Up The Ladder To The Roof" and "Stoned Love;" however, I was never as crazy about Jean Terrell's voice as I had been about Diane's in her "Supreme" heyday.
