The Top Ten

Cor blimey.. What a song...

2 Someone Like You - Adele

Such a beautiful famous song that even non-Adele lovers know it. Gorgeous and should DEFINITELY be voted the number one ballad song of all time. Takes your breath away how pretty it is, doesn't it?

This song just gives you an insight to Adele's painful past, she sings with such pain and grace. The thing which makes me love it is because she wrote it. AMAZING

It's a great song, by a great singer-songwriter. It reminds me of a song I wrote for my ex-girlfriend.

My absolute favorite song. So inspirational and heart-felt. Adele is a true music icon.

3 Breath of Heaven - Amy Grant
4 New York State of Mind - Billy Joel

Do yourself a favor and watch the live performance of this song on BBC Old Grey Whistle Test 1978.

5 Lately - Stevie Wonder
6 Angels - Robbie Williams
7 Shape of My Heart - Backstreet Boys

This is such a great song that everybody can enjoy. Even the people that are not fans like it. They have a lot of ballad that are good but this one is really good.

Backstreet Boys rocks... They remind me of when I was 4 or 5... Love all of their songs... Good 2 knw they still rock and of course they will always and forever be number 1 of all the pop bands...

When it came out, everybody was singing it. Such a beautiful, unforgettable song. A classic from the best pop group ever.

Quite simply, this song is a beautiful composition. No matter what people say, BSB is the greatest boyband ever. It's just a fact.

8 Because of You - Kelly Clarkson

One of the best songs ever, no doubt! Kelly's vocals are perfect, lyrics are touching, and instrumentals are superb.

10 You're Still The One - Shania Twain

WOW! There's so many great songs on this list. But this beautiful ballad comes from one of the best female singers of all time. It deserves recognition for being the lead single of one the best selling albums of all time!

Also, Mum walked down the aisle to this song, so it's very special in our family.

Shania for the win!
Where is she now? She needs a comeback! Come on guys!
She never fails to give REAL music!

I love Shania, and I love her voice. When she sings a ballad, it sounds like a lullabye...

Has to be Shania, amazing voice amazing song writer, awesome!

20 Take a Bow - Madonna

God only knows how Listen is infront of this!

Take a bow has been named by many organizations as one of the best ballads ever. It's beautiful

Madonna vocals are warm and strong.

Madonna does the best ballads to me, even though she doesn't have the fifth octave like Mariah who cares?

Crazy for you, Liver to tell, Spanish eyes, Rain, Take a bow, Power of goodbye. The list goes on and on. Madonna is the Queen of pop but also the Queen of pop ballads.

All hail her majesty MADONNA.

This song is beautiful as heaven, Madonna does the best ballad, live to tell, the power of goodbye, ill remember, you'll see, and one of my favourite the look of love.

Madonna with a sweet and mature voice in a lovely song about love
Madonna The Queen of Pop rocks on this sweet ballad! Everybody save The Queen

One of the best ballads of all time. Madonna is such an underrated and underestimated ballad artist.

21 An Angel - The Kelly Family
22 Reflection - Christina Aguilera
23 Eternal Flame - The Bangles
24 Beautiful - Christina Aguilera

A beautifully inspirational song sung by POP legend Christina Aguilera. Message sent "You are beautiful, no matter what other people say or do"

My favourite ballad of all time.

25 Everytime - Britney Spears

Just listen to it and you'll feel something happening to your soul, to your heart... Now, do you understand why Britney is so loved? Because her voice isn't so strong, so powerful, but it has an amazing intensity, the capability to break a heart in two words

Heartbreaking was the only word I found when I first heard it. Fell madly in love with this song of fragility, and I still love it very much. Power coming from the weakened soul singing a song of sorrow.

The Pop Queen's best ballad. It's been what, 10 years ago when this is released, and I'm still listening to this @ 2014. Very Heartbreaking. Both the song and the Music video. And it is a good thing for me.

Love you BRITNEY

Like what, every time makes me cry, it's such a beautiful song.
