The heist flick that intro'd Quentin Tarantino gets spiffed up for a two-disc, tenth-anniversary DVD with colors that pop like a whore's lip gloss. It's all here: hoods with color-coded names like Mr. Pink and Mr. White; the gabbing about tipping and Madonna's pussy; the tension generated by showing the before and after but not the heist itself; and more of that infamous sequence in which Michael Madsen's Mr. Blonde cuts off a cop's ear to the tune of "Stuck in the Middle With You." Besides deleted scenes, you get interviews with cast, crew and a few critics (including yours truly). The best bit is a look at the films that competed with Dog at Sundance in 1992. Motormouth Tarantino barks like hell that he didn't win (In the Soup did). Down, boy, you did fine.

    “I Was Made to Love Her”

    Stevie Wonder | 1967

    Stevie Wonder discovered true love while still a teenager, writing this ode to young love when he was only 17. The song, Wonder explained, "kind of speaks of my first love, to a girl named Angie, who was a very beautiful woman. She's married now. Actually, she was my third girlfriend but my first love. I used to call Angie up and we would talk and say, 'I love you, I love you,' and we'd talk and we'd both go to sleep on the phone.” The Beach Boys, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston and Boyz II Men have all recorded versions of "I Was Made to Love Her."
