The U.K. folkies flip Vampire Weekend's hyperactive, bachata-flavored rocker, starting it as a slow ballad, then shifting into a beery polka. Bonus points for the claw-hammer-banjo breakdown and the Peter Gabriel-via-Dave Matthews vocal impression.
“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."
