The Top Ten

1 Purple Rain - Prince & The Revolution

Cor blimey.. What a song...

This or man in the mirror should be number 1

Best Ballad ever, not really but I like it anyway


2 Someone Like You - Adele

This song just gives you an insight to Adele's painful past, she sings with such pain and grace. The thing which makes me love it is because she wrote it. AMAZING

It makes me cry every time I hear it I just can't stop hearing it it makes my heart pump so so much I can't believe it's such a beautiful song ever made the song give her a big hug and a big hug and tell him or that that song was beautiful

Such a beautiful famous song that even non-Adele lovers know it. Gorgeous and should DEFINITELY be voted the number one ballad song of all time. Takes your breath away how pretty it is, doesn't it?

Its awesome
