Groove to the Smooth, Sultry Sounds of Manny Pacquaio Singing his Chart-Topping Hit, "Sometimes When We Touch"

Manny Pacquaio is a real 'Jack of all trades', a Renaissance Man. He's a multi-titleholding boxer, politician, burgeoning international businessman, and actor.

Manny Pacquiao can add successful pop artist to his growing list of accomplishments. The Filipino boxer has been recording since 2006, but his latest cut is really making its mark in the pop charts.

Pacquiao remade Dan Hill's love ballad, "Sometimes When We Touch," which was ranked #11 on the Secondary Adult Contemporary charts as of last week.

I had some doubts. My expectations of any famous boxer pursuing a musical career were lowered early on when Roy Jones made a scary foray into the rap industry (I always thought Dave Hollister's "One Woman Man" was a hot track until Roy ruined it). But if you're into slow romantic stuff, Manny's version of this ballad actually isn't all that bad.

Turn this on next time you and your boo get two minutes to spare (it probably won't last much longer). It's not a panty dropper, but it might just get the job done!

Here's the first stanza and chorus to Manny's hit track:

"Sometimes When We Touch" (Ft. Dan Hill)

"You ask me if I love you
And I choke on my reply
I'd rather hurt you honestly
Than mislead you with a lie
And who am I to judge you
On what you say or do?
I'm only just beginning to see the real you

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you til I die
Til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides"
