When the 101 number one song of the day was released people wondered could this group possibly do what no one else ever had?  The answer was a resounding yes! 

The group had just scored three straight number ones and no one in the history of Billboard’s Top 100 had ever recorded 4 straight chart toppers.  So this one was one for the record books.  Lamont Dozier who co-wrote the song with Brian and Eddie Holland remembers that it all started with a fight he was having with his girlfriend.  He was always looking for lyrics and often would stop a conversation when something struck him and run to the piano to start writing a song.  That’s exactly what happened when he uttered a phrase which struck them both as funny and consequently ended the argument.  That phrase became the title of a song which was number one on March 28, 1965 for the Supremes and the phrase was: Stop in the Name of Love!
