Do I even need to explain this one? OK, fine, I will for the people in the back. Lo perfectly exemplifies how to lay down the law in this epic bop.
It perfectly captures a love for both Fridays and being in love on a Friday—an intoxicating combo. Need I say more? Okay, fine. It covers every aspect of the fairy-tale love story, from knowing they were right for you from the start to them having your back through thick and thin. Cute, right? If you were a fan of the MTV masterpiece that was Newlyweds , I would highly recommend listening to this song and imagining an alternate universe in which Nick and Jess really made it for the long haul and he serenaded her with this every day.
And the song was actually v cute and really good. Girl, you thought. Yes, it first came out over two decades ago. This song is basically like a way more romantic version of that. I love this song, because it can be related to more than one love of your life. In other words, you can relate it to the love you feel about your BF and the love you feel for your BFF.
This is more than just a romantic song. This is a quintessential sex song and probably the most bang-able song on this list. Let this song remind you of the sort of love you deserve.

I told Calvin to go home and write some words. He liked the song but suggested that some of the words be changed to give a more positive message. Wright said, "We kept some of the phrases, worked on it for several weeks, and spent quite a bit of time in the studio.
Although the writing of the song is credited to Lewis and Wright, Sledge later said that he should have received a co-writing credit. In one story, Sledge said that one night he was upset over a broken relationship and asked Lewis and Wright to play a slow blues over which he improvised lyrics describing his emotions; Quin Ivy was at the show and asked the band to refine the lyrics so that it could be recorded.
Sledge said that he allowed Lewis and Wright to take the writing credits because they gave him the opportunity "to sing his heart out". I just reversed it. Quin told me that if I was to write some lyrics around that melody and the expression I'd put into "Why Did You Leave Me Baby", he believed it would've been a hit record. He was one of the top disc jockeys at that time.
Sure enough, he asked me if I had any lyrics for that. He said, "That's it! Write a story around that title! What a song that would be with that feeling you had! It wasn't just what I had done; it was the musicians, the producer, the background singers, the right time.
