When A Man Loves A Woman By Percy Sledge


If you want a quick lesson in what soul music is all about; “When A Man Loves A Woman” by Percy Sledge is a place to start.

The song has sparse instrumentation with Sledge pouring out his heart over the top.

It debuted on the Billboard hot 100 April 9. Seven weeks later it was number one for the first of two weeks. It would prove to be double hit as it topped the R&B chart as well.

He would never have another top ten pop hit, but his one huge hit was eternal.
