Swedish House Mafia's Steve Angello and producer/songwriter Jacques Lu Cont have teamed up to remix "Soothe My Soul" from Depeche Mode's latest effort, Delta Machine. While Depeche Mode's original was a harrowing cut that moved along in a lurching blues vein, the two electronic music whizzes transform its syncopated beat into a commanding four-on-the-floor, building a stadium-sized rager from the track's guttural guitars, sparkling synths and frontman Dave Gahan's repeated proclamation, "There's only one way to soothe my soul."

Angello was thrilled by the experience. "Depeche Mode and Jacques Lu Cont are heroes to me, so when the opportunity came, there was not a single doubt in my mind," he enthuses to Rolling Stone.

“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."
