Best Glam/Hair Metal Power Ballads

1 Every Rose Has It's Thorn - Poison

This is the best ballad.

This song is US #1 hit for 3 Weeks.This song is so much beautiful,Best Ballad Ever

2 Home Sweet Home - Mötley Crüe

"I'm on my way..." - Jonerman

3 Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone) - Cinderella
4 Heaven - Warrant

Love the rhythm and lyrics. jani is one of the best musician and song writer. I love the songs from this list until I listened to this song.

Anyone who says cherry pie is best warrant song is just dumb. this one is just so melodic a great song

5 I Remember You - Skid Row

Great lyrics did it...

6 I Wanna Be With You - Pretty Boy Floyd
7 You're All I Need - Mötley Crüe

This one is more romantic than home sweet home it's just a lovely song with sad verse, sad chorus and sad guitar solo. Vince wrote it for his girlfriend which were couples a long time ago since he was in prison when they broke up and made the news again. Also they married and they had a daughter who died by a symptom that the doctors can help that little girl to feel better even the medicines helped at all and she died. Vince Neil was so sad that he left Motley crue for years in the 90s and he returned back in 1997 according to the book they have written back in 2008 when they record the last album saints in Los Angeles. I realise that any ich motley crue album has a ballad to show that they can play calm music to represent the glam metal era and like that they become one of the most notorious rock band in the world. And so that's why song is on the top of this list so they're all I need to listen to.

9 Wild Angels - Pretty Boy Floyd
10 Feels Like Love - Danger Danger

12 The Price - Twisted Sister
13 When the Children Cry - White Lion


14 Hold On To My Heart - W.A.S.P
15 Beth - Kiss
16 Without You - Motley Crue

This is one of the best ballads by Motley crue ever it managed to reach the top ten billboard charts 200 #8. The music is epic, it has very sad intro and even the bass which plays on the verse by Nikki sixx, so emotional. Also the lyrics are beautiful too with an amazing slide guitar solo by mick Mars and Vince Neil vocals. Very romantic ballad
Nothing like Motley crue can write such an incredible song, it's the saddest ballad ever which can make you cry so much than the other ballads in glam metal era.

19 Keep Holding On - W.A.S.P

Truly underrated, this may be at the bottom of the list but id honestly have to say that out of all the songs on here that one is has the saddest meaning behind it without a doubt.
