Aw, hell, Billy. Had forgotten about this effete whiner for more than forty years, and you hadda go resurrect him. Thanks, pal.

10 Layla - Derek & the Dominos

A ballad written by Eric Clapton about his unrequited love for Pattie Boyd, wife of his friend George Harrison from The Beatles.
Maybe deserves to be at #1? (considering the degree of complication and greatness of the song... ) - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Ben - Michael Jackson

A love song to a rat, what's unusual about that?

12 Young Girl - Gary Puckett & the Union Gap

Oh yes! Thanks to whoever added this - Billyv

13 Loverman - Metallica

It's a cover song, originally by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, but I love Metallica version better because James Hetfield voice is more dramatic. I think the song is about a married man in love with another woman, or both are married. I definitely love this song - music, lyrics and Metallica's rendition.

"There's a devil waiting outside your door
(How much longer? )

He's shouting your name and he's asking for more

Loverman! Here I stand Forever, Amen
Cause I am what I am, what I am, what I am
Forgive me, baby, my hands are tied
And I got no choice No, I got no choice at all
I'll say it again
L is for LOVE, baby" - Metal_Treasure

14 I Died for You - Iced Earth

One of my favorite metal ballads, with great powerful vocals.

"When I finally saw her
She's happy and in love
In love with my best friend
What makes it hurt so bad
Is that I love them both
And they will never know
For love I sold my soul". - Metal_Treasure

15 Can't Feel My Face - The Weeknd
16 Me and Mrs. Jones - Billy Paul
17 Love the Way You Lie - Eminem
18 Mendocino - Sir Douglas Quintet
19 Cracklin' Rosie - Neil Diamond
20 Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon - Neil Diamond
