A new song from Bob Dylan's forthcoming album Tempest appeared last night on the Cinemax drama Strike Back. "Scarlet Town," a haunted, acoustic-driven number supported by strains of David Hidalgo's violin, came on as the end credits rolled on the show's season premiere. Another track from the record, "Early Roman Kings," had its debut earlier this month on the trailer for Strike Back's second season. 

Dylan's 35th studio album, which he described to Rolling Stone as one where "anything goes and you just gotta believe it will make sense," is due out September 11th on Columbia Records.

“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."
