Description

"Come See About Me" is a 1964 by Lamont Dozier and brothers Brian Holland and Eddie Holland. The song became third of five consecutively released Supremes songs to top the Billboard pop singles chart in the United States (the others are "Where Did Our Love Go," "Baby Love," "Stop! In the Name of Love," and "Back in My Arms Again"). It topped the chart twice, non-consecutively; toppled by and later replacing The Beatles' "I Feel Fine" in December 1964 and January 1965. It was the number-one song on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for two separate weeks: December 13, 1964 to December 18, 1964, and January 10, 1965 to January 16, 1965, and reached the number three position on the soul chart. The group made their first of 17 appearances live on the popular CBS variety program The Ed Sullivan Show performing this single on Sunday, December 27, 1964.
