1. When a Man Loves a Woman
Calvin Lewis and Andrew Wright were members of Percy Sledge’s group The Esquires. During a practice session, Wright created the famous keyboard riff that will become the centrepiece of the song and asked Lewis to write matching lyrics. They presented it to Percy Sledge who liked it and, after some few changes, the song was recorded and released in April 1966. The song was an immediate hit in the US and UK. It even reached the 53rd position of the Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It got covered several times, including by Bette Midler and Michael Bolton.

However, the version we all know was released a few months later by the English singer Joe Cocker who did a slower version, in a different tonality that made it sound much more intimate. It was a relative success when it got released, but it earned its place in popular culture after it got used in countless movies and TV series, from The Simpsons to the Walking Dead. It also got covered dozens of times, including by Zucchero and Al Green.
