208 Lady Starlight - Scorpions

It's a joke that this was not on the list - christangrant

211 Desperado - Eagles
212 Home Sweet Home - Motley Crue

this song pretty much started the whole ballad thing.
and on top of being the first, it's also definetly one of the best.

Best song ever! It's amazing, and should be in top 10.

This song is a rock classic and the best ballad I never heard... Mötley Crüe still the best.

213 Look At Me - John Lennon
214 Everyday - Slade
215 Love Song - AC/DC
216 Hold On To My Heart - W.A.S.P.
217 I'll Never Let You Go - Steelheart
218 Magic Power - Triumph

Triumph has to be the kings of the power balad. you cannot beat them in that. It's not about anything sad, but the value of music. that is powerful. - qaz9999

219 Take It All Away - Red

this song is very unique. RED is not the most popular band but they do have potential. I heard this song and quite honestly, I hated it, I decided I would not buy it. Eventually when I did end up buying it I fell in love with it. Starting when I heard the last part of the song I knew it was special. I listened to the whole song and finally figured it out. The whole song is a buildup. It gets more intense as it goes on, and at the end it bursts into glorious flames. I urge you to listen to this song and try and understand it too. - clayhakes

220 The Clouding - Iced Earth
