The Contenders: Page 6XW

101Forever - Kiss

Under rated because of the gimmick and the slight detour in the 1980's, but one hell of a rock band

102I'm With You - Avril Lavigne

Best song about loneliness so far...

105When the Smoke Is Going Down - Scorpions

Come on people... This song can put you in a different world all together... When the guitar starts playing... You can't stop but find yourself lost in the smoke of the SCORPIONS...

This song should be number 1. Search this song on YouTube right now! An amazing and beautiful ballad.

106Shallow Sleep - Hyde

hyde's beautiful, tender voice, the memorable melody, and these lyrics...

In a shallow sleep I dreamt I was seeing you
Just how I remembered
Brimming with tenderness
And somewhere in the calm
A feeling that nothing had ever changed
Your presence close beside me till I wake

- excerpt from Shallow Sleep, lyrics and music by HYDE

107Everlong - The Foo FightersV1 Comment
108I Won't See You Tonight, Pt. 1 - Avenged Sevenfold

Good song but totally overrated, so sorry, maybe after some evolution of the bands chemie

109The Long and Winding Road - The Beatles
110Ride On - AC/DC

nothing but the best from the legendary Bon Scot and Angus Young

The true number 1! The pretty voice of the legendary Bon Scott and the clean guitar sound of the guitar god Angus Young... Just awesome!

Should be a top ten all time rock ballad song. The orchestra score for this song is so moving. Unexpected from this band. One of their best songs ever!

The first rock ballad I ever heard. Simple but poignant, missing the girl.

Great single from peter Criss the Kiss Drummer
