The song by Percy Sledge...perhaps one of the greatest love songs ever written, and just incredible as sung by Percy Sledge...
Yes, Phyl and I sat through 1 hour of other songs by Percy Sledge (that we'd never heard of), along with 2 cover songs, `Dock Of the Bay' by Otis Redding, who died after recording it, and it became a hit. The other cover was `Midnight Hour' by Wilson Pickett. Both fine covers. And finally, after sitting and patiently waiting, Percy sang `When A Man Loves A Woman', and it brought tears to my eyes. It never did, originally, but after almost 32 years of marriage, I finally got it. Cypress Gardens,2/05/06
