I'm getting close to the end of the list of favorite "man and woman" songs, and wrapping up all the gender nouns songs. Thanks to @teamfreak16 , who started this with "girl" songs, I've done girls, boys, women, men, and men & women. Here's the penultimate song on the list. #2: When a Man Loves a Woman - Percy Sledge Okay, who didn't see this one coming? Mercy, it's Percy!! And this isn't even my favorite Percy Sledge song. Not by a long shot. But holy cow, what a song. This was Percy Sledge's only #1 pop hit (he had five top 40 pop hits, in addition to all of his R&B chart hits). It's the song that he's best remembered for. And for good reason. There's a reason it's called "soul" music: Percy poured out his soul into every syllable of this unforgettable classic. Mercy, it's Percy. When a Man Loves a Woman Written by Calvin Lewis & Andrew Wright Recorded by Percy Sledge From When a Man Loves a Woman, 1966 Hold on tight:
