The Supremes – Where Did Our Love Go
It was also the first of five Supremes songs in a row to reach number one (respectively, "Baby Love," "Come See About Me," "Stop! In the Name of Love," and "Back in My Arms Again"). The song also reached number-one on the Cash Box R&B singles chart. The Supremes' version is ranked #472 on Rolling Stone 's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
One of the most famous aspects of "Where Did Our Love Go" was its rhythm section, consisting primarily of footstomps. The sound effect was performed by an Italian-American teenager named Mike Valvano, who stomped down upon two wooden boards suspended by strings, to create the aural illusion of a group of foot-stompers. Handclaps were overdubbed for the 45 RPM single mix of the song.
