Come on people... This song can put you in a different world all together... When the guitar starts playing... You can't stop but find yourself lost in the smoke of the SCORPIONS...

This song should be number 1. Search this song on YouTube right now! An amazing and beautiful ballad.

104 Shallow Sleep - Hyde

hyde's beautiful, tender voice, the memorable melody, and these lyrics...

In a shallow sleep I dreamt I was seeing you
Just how I remembered
Brimming with tenderness
And somewhere in the calm
A feeling that nothing had ever changed
Your presence close beside me till I wake

- excerpt from Shallow Sleep, lyrics and music by HYDE

105 The Long and Winding Road - The Beatles
106 Everlong - The Foo Fighters

The true number 1! The pretty voice of the legendary Bon Scott and the clean guitar sound of the guitar god Angus Young... Just awesome!

The first rock ballad I ever heard. Simple but poignant, missing the girl.

118 Don't Close Your Eyes - Kix

This song is a great power balad

119 Yellow - Coldplay
120 The Sound Of Silence - Disturbed

Utterly amazing performance, cover versions usually leave me cold but this is astounding. Hairs on The back of my neck stand to attention. So so good it rivals nothing else matters which is the biggest compliment I can give.

One of the best covers ever made
