Song of the Day: Stevie Wonder, “I Was Made To Love Her”

Lula Mae Hardaway, mother of Stevie Wonder and co-writer on many of his early hits, was born on this day in 1930. She co-wrote “I Was Made To Love Her” with her son Stevie, Sylvia Moy, and producer Henry Cosby and was the title track on his 1967 album. It reached #1 on the R&B chart, #2 on the Hot 100, and #5 in Canada and the UK, and finished the year at #14.

  1. Of all Stevie Wonder songs this is the one I like the best. I heard it for the first time in the 80s on an oldies channel. I had to call the station to get the name of the song…I knew it was Wonder but didn’t know the name. The chorus doesn’t dwell on that phrase….it’s a great song.
