31 Amaranth - Nightwish
32 A Voice in the Dark - Blind Guardian
33 Nightfall - Blind Guardian

This is a genre-defining song. It has all the aspect of power metal. Even people who don't like power metal likes this song.

"Even people who don't like power metal like this song" (quote) That is spot on, told my friend to listen to the song yesterday and he genuinely enjoyed it. I am so glad that such music exists in time of trashy pop songs. The song is just magical, played it 15 times yesterday and it'll never get old.

This is a unique song, magical and beautiful.
And who else can write such a line? - "Nightfall quietly crept in and changed us all."
This is poetry of high class, God bless Hansi. - Metal_Treasure

34 Sons of Winter and Stars - Wintersun

This is possibly the best example of musical perfection

Not actually Power Metal, just Symphonic Death Metal. - Penguincamp

35 Gates of Babylon - Rainbow

The birthplace of power metal. This song is a masterpiece - from the power metal masters and inventors of the subgenre (Dio and Ritchie Blackmore).
This is The Power Metal Bible and pretty much the song that defined power metal subgenre back in the 70s, together with another Rainbow song - Stargazer. - Metal_Treasure

Needs to be higher! - somekindofaguy

36 Glory to the Brave - Hammerfall
37 The Bard's Song - In the Forest - Blind Guardian

If you want to know something special about that song, just go to YouTube and search The Bard's Song at Wacken Live. I bet you will be mute after watching it.

Tomorrow will take us away, far from home, no one will ever know our names... But the Bard's songs will remain.

This is the best ballad ever made. Hansi's voice in the many versions of the is simply AMAZING. This goes right above Mirror Mirror and Nightfall for me.

38 Iconoclast - Symphony X
39 The Road Again - Dark Moor
40 Wolf and Raven - Sonata Arctica

A killing intro, a killing solo, a killing vocal! The best ever!
