The best Power Ballad, ever ??
I had totally forgotten about
, which I honestly think is the one from them that's actually a Power Ballad. The more I think about it, the less placing
makes sense to me. They are more like
Stairway to Heaven
to me. Those songs are written on another format.
To me, a power ballad is usually romantic as far as lyrical content, has bombastic choruses, loud power chords after a slower, sometimes acoustic section and is radio friendly. When I think of a power ballad, I picture stuff like
from Great White,
Home Sweet Home
l from Aerosmith or the radio hits from Foreigner. Stuff like
Before the Dawn, Dust in the Wind
More than Words
aren't power ballads, IMHO. Those are just ballads to me.
Beyond the Realms of Death
from Priest isn't one either. That falls more unto the description I went unto my first paragraph.
