For my fifth Seasonal Saturday, I am going to be writing about such a great love song, that is so powerful. I am going to write about Percy Sledge's classic hit song, "When A Man Loves A Woman."
The lyrics describe what happens when you fall in love with someone. The first verse goes, "When A Man Loves A Woman, can't keep his mind on nothin' else. He'll trade the world, for the good thing he's found. If she is bad, he can't see it. She can do no wrong. Turn his back on his best friend, if he put her down." The second verse then says, "When A Man Loves A Woman, spend his very last dime. Trying to hold on to what he needs. He'd give up all his comfort, and sleep out in the rain. If she said that's the way it's ought to be.
Then the bridge comes in with, "Well this Man Loves A Woman, I gave you everything I had. Trying to hold on to your, precious love. Baby, please don't treat me bad." Then the third verse says, "Yes When A Man Loves A Woman, down deep in his soul. She can bring him such misery. If she plays him as a fool, he's the last one to know. Loving eyes can never see." Then the fourth and final verse states, "When A Man Loves A Woman, he can do no wrong. He can never own some other girl. Yes When A Man Loves A Woman, I know exactly how he feels. 'Cause baby, baby, baby, you are my world! When A Man Loves A Woman!"
This song is so beautiful, and one for all of us men out there that can sing, to sing to our loves. I strongly recommend playing this song either today or tomorrow, to the one you love.
Also, are you guys impressed that I am resurrecting the Seasonal Saturday again. I didn't forget about it. I also might make the decision to have it going through Lent, with some holy songs. I don't know right now, lots of options!
So with these two songs this week, they were cute, but for tomorrow's post, I am going to give a long list of great love songs, for Valentine's Day!
Have you heard this song before? Do you think it is a great love song? Would you sing it to your love if you were given the chance?
