Produced by Smokey Robinson in 1966, "Get Ready" was an answer to the latest dance craze, "The Duck". Eddie Kendricks sings lead on the song, with rhythm provided by Motown drummer Benny Benjamin. Melvin Franklin sings the pre-chorus "Fe, fi, fo, fum... Look out baby 'cause here I come..." The song made it to number one on the U.S. R&B singles chart, while peaking at number twenty-nine on the pop charts.
