Top Ten Best Pop Ballads


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Everytime - Britney Spears Everytime - 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

22 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel

Without doubt. One of the best songs ever written

23 Sacrifice - Elton John
24 An Angel - The Kelly Family
25 Still Loving You - Scorpions Still Loving You - Scorpions

This one a rock ballad I guess, still one of the greatest ballads of all time

26 Speechless - 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
