Still seeking power ballads for my list


Recommended Posts

I'm still building my site which strives to create THE ultimate list of power ballads by AOR, hair metal, 80's rock band and heavy metal acts. If you look over my list and notice i'm missing your favorite or some obscure gem, let me know!

 

Thanks!

Don't wanna search through over a thousand songs in that list but some of my favourite power ballads are:

 

Damn Yankees: Silence is broken, where you going now, high enough

Night ranger: Time of our lives

Thunder: Love walked in

Wig Wam: At the end of the day

H.e.a.t: laughing at tomorrow (if that still counts as a ballad)

Unruly child: to be your everything

Bai Bang: Only the best die young (the best of four version), you should not listen to a live version because that singer is awful

Probably a bunch I could come up with but he's a few that quickly jumped out at me.  I'm not sure if you're looking for only "older" tunes/bands though or if newer bands/songs qualify.  I do see Eclipse on the list though...

Pretty Maids:

Would You Still Kiss Me (If I See You In Heaven) - Undress Your Madness 2019

Bullet For You - Motherland 2013

H..E.A.T:

Eye Of The Storm - Into The Great Unknown 2017

Midnite City:

Everything You Meant To Me - S/T 2017

I know there are plenty more but those are a few that quickly jumped into my head.
