Ross is one of the most successful female artists of her era, both due to her solo work and her role as lead singer of The Supremes during the 1960s. In 1959, Ross was brought to the attention of Milton Jenkins, the manager of the local doo-wop group The Primes, by Mary Wilson. Primes member Paul Williams convinced Jenkins to enlist Ross in the sister group The Primettes, which included Wilson, Florence Ballard and Betty McGlown.

For openers: What is Jimmy Webb's credits doing on this song????!!!!! This song was written by Cheryl Ernst (Cheryl Ernst Wells /current name) in 1969 and produced by Bones Howe. Jimmy Webb wrote the hokey dokey song "Interim" for Richard Harris on the MacArthur Park album. Listen to both song lyrics...do you hear any similarity? Of course not!!! This came from a misattribution on the Motown album which has since been corrected.

The best feel good song about not finding love yet. Basically, everyone has impatience when it comes to love. You can find a thousand people, and date them and still not love them. And you hear what love is to some people and want that for yourself. So, here he is talking about how it takes patience and you might get your heart broken in the process several times but that doesn't mind that you should stop trying, nor are you alone.
