Smashing Pumpkins Plot "Gish" Box Set, Tour

June 23, 2008 1:43 PM ET

To celebrate the 17th anniversary of Gish, the Smashing Pumpkins are planning to release a box set of their debut album complete with material preceding Gish's release, according to the Pumpkin's Website. Plans are already underway for the box set, and while the exact contents of the release are currently unknown, the Pumpkins expect to embark on a Gish tour to coincide with the special edition — both of which are scheduled to happen later this year, according to the site. The Gish reissue will likely be the first move in the master plan Corgan has schemed since becoming a record label free agent following the release of Zeitgeist. The band is also rumored to be playing 20th anniversary concerts at some point this year as well.

“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."
