Balladeer Percy Sledge, 74, RIP

In this Oct. 28, 2008, file photo, Percy Sledge kneels as he performs "When a Man Loves a Woman" along with the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section at the Musicians Hall of Fame awards show in Nashville, Tenn. Sledge, who recorded the classic 1966 soul ballad "When a Man Loves a Woman," died today. He was 74. Story here. (AP Photo/Mark Humphrey, File)

Question: Is there any Baby Boomer male out there who hasn't tried to sing at least some of the lyrics to Percy Sledge's "When a Man Loves a Woman"?
