A Song for the Days of Innocence and Wonder

Percy Sledge died yesterday morning.  At shortly after midnight, on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, he died of natural causes.  I was surprised to learn that he was but seventy-four years old.  

His was a voice that I, for one, never tired of hearing.  His signature song, which was his debut single "When A Man Loves A Woman" , also has the distinction of being used in what is for me as great a marriage of television and music as has ever been aired.   

Rest peacefully, Percy.  

Lovin' eyes can never see...
