>The Soft, The Creamy, The Velvety Voice! Percy Sledge


>



Percy Sledge possesses one of the creamiest voices, I’ve ever heard. True, it was his unique sweet tenor, that made him famous. But Percy’s tenor has absolutely no sharp edges to it. On the contrary, it is still soft and creamy even when it soars as in When A Man Loves Woman or It Tears Me Up. And that is Percy’s trademark.

I think everyone is familiar with Percy’s When A Man Loves A Woman, therefore I’m going to post two other favorites of mine.

Out Of Left Field 
Warm And Tender Love



Okay — because it is sweet ol’ Percy, I add another track that is very, very close to my heart.

” … you’re gone
But your goodness stays on
And I thank you
For These precious memories …”
(Just substitute the three dots with whomever you are thinking about when you hear these words, and you get your very personal version of the song.)
You’re All Around Me
