"Put Yourself in My Place" is a song written by the Motown team of Holland–Dozier–Holland and recorded by at least four Motown recording acts during the sixties: The Elgins in 1965, The Supremes, Chris Clark and The Isley Brothers in 1966.


While the Elgins and Supremes' versions were issued as b-sides in 1966, the Isleys' version gave the brothers a hit with it in 1969 when Tamla-Motown re-issued the single for the UK music listeners sending the song to No. 13 on the UK singles chart.
