My Mistake (Was to Love You)

"My Mistake (Was to Love You)" is a song recorded as a duet by Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye. It was the second single released from their duet album, Diana & Marvin, in early 1974. One of the original songs to come out of the album, and written by Gloria Jones and Pam Sawyer (the latter the co-writer of Ross' 1976 number-one single, "Love Hangover"), the song talked about how two lovers' relationship fell apart because the man, according to the woman, felt as if "a girl loves you, you only call them weak", while the man admits that he let his girl go "smoothly like rain to sand". The song peaked at #15 on the Billboard R&B singles chart and #19 on the Billboard Pop singles chart.
