It took eight years, but this Sin City-born emo-glam squad finally made its Vegas Album. Brendon Urie sings about endless bed-hopping (faux-rap "Miss Jackson"), troubled love (disco dirge "Girl That You Love") and joyless smoking ("Nicotine") to catchy synth-rock nuggets adorned with drah-mah-tic flourishes. The title is via Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, but that bonus exclamation point is all Panic's.

    “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."
