Top Ten Best Pop Ballads


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Reflection - Christina Aguilera
22The Power of Love - Jennifer Rush
23Everytime - Britney Spears

Heartbreaking was the only word I found when I first heard it. Fell madly in love with this song of fragility, and I still love it very much. Power coming from the weakened soul singing a song of sorrow.

A beautifully heart-wrenching song. Absolutely amazing and incredible. A TRUE ballad.

The Pop Queen's best ballad. It's been what, 10 years ago when this is released, and I'm still listening to this @ 2014. Very Heartbreaking. Both the song and the Music video. And it is a good thing for me.

Love you BRITNEY

24Sacrifice - Elton John
25An Angel - The Kelly Family
26Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkel

Without doubt. One of the best songs ever written

27Speechless - Lady GaGa

YES. So glad this is on the list. An absolute gem of a ballad. So not the attention seeking modern techno-sounding hogwash that Gaga is famous for. This is straight up instruments live and harks back to a time when musicians were musically inclined, not naked and sexy.

This is a great ballad, when Lady Gaga was doing great songs and was famous. That horrible electronic album ARTPOP fade up had whole career
