"Love Hangover" was the fourth number one single for Motown singer Diana Ross. It was released in March 1976, and rose to number one on the Billboard Hot 100, Hot Soul Singles and Hot Dance Club Play charts simultaneously.

Written by Pamela Sawyer and Marilyn McLeod, the song had been originally recorded by the The 5th Dimension as a disco number. The Motown staff believed that it would be perfect for Ross to record. Ross, like her soul contemporaries Aretha Franklin and Marvin Gaye, initially resented the new musical movement but eventually agreed to record the song.
