"You Keep Me Hangin' On" is a 1966 number-one hit song originally recorded by The Supremes for the Motown label.
Written and produced by Motown's main production team Holland–Dozier–Holland (H-D-H), the single is very-much rooted in proto-funk and rhythm and blues, compared to the Supremes' previous single, "You Can't Hurry Love," which utilizes the call and response elements akin to gospel.
