Michael Bolton – “When a Man Loves a Woman” – (1991)

Maybe the decade confusion caused by this song is because it’s a 1991 cover a song originally done in 1966 by Percy Sledge. I don’t want to say the original is better because I’m currently listening to the Bolton version (which won a Grammy and was a #1 hit). It’s confusing me. Michael Bolton has a very unique voice that has the ability to make just about anything sound catch. This version has a very late-80s early-90s bluesy feeling and I definitely recall hearing it a crap-ton on the radio during the early 90s.
