The Top Ten
When I heard this song for the first time, I was surprised a singer at 22 sounded so sad, as if he had already experienced a lot in life. Maybe David Coverdale was an old soul in a young body... - Metal_Treasure
A pretty heavy ballad-esque song. The live version from California 1974 is very good. - Metal_Treasure
Again, a very sad sounding voice from a 25 yo man. - Metal_Treasure
A great cover song - the original isn't a ballad but Whitesnake made it sound like a ballad: they played it slower and heavier, and Coverdale sang it more emotionally. And they played it rock style. - Metal_Treasure
It was on the Days Of Thunder OST, a Tom Cruise film, 1990 - Metal_Treasure
A power ballad that is almost 8 minutes long - from the 1993 album with Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin. If this song reminds you Led Zeppelin, you are right - music was written by Jimmy Page. - Metal_Treasure
This is an all time favorite by Whitesnake but I put it lower because it might be too heavy to be called a ballad, even a power ballad. But after listening to fast extreme metal, every slower song sounds like a ballad to me, LOL. And this was the reason I hesitated. - Metal_Treasure
The middle of the song has a pretty heavy section though (a song from the album with Jimmy Page) - Metal_Treasure
It's a power ballad. - Metal_Treasure
