When a Man Loves a Woman" is a song written by Calvin Lewis and Andrew Wright and first recorded by Percy Sledge in 1966 at Norala Sound Studio in Sheffield, Alabama. It made number one on both the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B singles charts. Singer and actress Bette Midler recorded the song 14 years later and had a Top 40 hit with her version in 1980.
When a man loves a woman, Can't keep his mind on nothin' else, He'd change 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. When a man loves a woman, He'll spend his very last dime Tryin' to hold on to what he needs. He'd give up all his comforts And sleep out in the rain, If she said that's the way It ought to be. Well, this man loves you, woman. I gave you everything I have, Tryin' to hold on to your heartless love. Baby, please don't treat.

As Sledge tells it, one night while performing with The Esquires Combo, he was upset about a woman - a broken relationship - so upset that he couldn't concentrate on the music he was supposed to sing. He was so overcome with emotion as the group started their set in a Sheffield, Alabama club, that he turned to his bass player Calvin Lewis and organ player Andrew Wright and asked them if they could play a slow blues backing - any key, their choice - to which he could sing

Percy Sledge is synonymous with ‘When A Man Loves A Woman,' which hit No. 1 in the US on 28 May 1966. But he made many other gems in a 50-year-plus career. After that encore success for ‘When A Man’ in the 1980s, Sledge recorded a fine 1994 album which we highly recommend, the Grammy-nominated Blue Night, for the Sky Ranch label, via Virgin. It featured such guests as Bobby Womack and former Rolling Stone Mick Taylor. No less a music industry great than Jerry Wexler (who had released Sledge’s Atlantic recordings) wrote on the sleeve of Blue Night : This record is impeccable. Percy’s voice is warmer and rounder than I remembered it and his intonation (‘pitch’ to the civilians) is flawless
