    I'm not even going to bother putting any up since all mine are up! Nothing like a good rock ballad though.

    Exclamation

    I forgot-

    -"If I Could Turn Back Time", "Just Like Jesse James" and "After All"-Cher (That last song was a duet with Peter Cetera)
    -"Will You Still Love Me?"-Chicago
    -"Fallen"-Lauren Wood (From the "Pretty Woman" soundtrack)
    -"Suddenly"-Billy Ocean
    -"Eyes Without A Face"-Billy Idol

    What would happen if we made a boxed set of all the songs mentioned in this thread?

    Hey, I suddenly remembered A great Norwegian band:Return! They had at least two great ballads: "Bye,bye Johnny" and "Sing me a song"
    Don't know whether they played overseas, but they were quite big here in Europe! If you like rock-ballads, check them out!

    While watching VH1 Behind teh Music this weekend, I forgot just how cool all the Journey Ballads were. Open Arms, Faithfully, The Girl Cant Help it, Loving touching squeezin', and all those bad ass songs. Damn Steve Perry has a great voice.
    Somebody Mentioned Jon Waite singing MISSING YOU. I didnt know that Jonathan Cain had tried to get him to sing Open Arms while they were both in the Babies. Imagine how big he could have been if he would have just sang that one song? But then again, he had WHEN I SEE YOU SMILE with Bad English.

    My favorite Chicago song was LOOK AWAY. It sorta went along with the reason that I HATE Cheap Trick's THE FLAME (all is forgiven Dawn).

    What about these, I am not sure they were put in before or not:

    IN YOUR EYES by Peter Gabriel
    ONE MORE NIGHT by Phil Collins
    DRIFT AWAY By Dobie Grey (a 70s song, but cool)
    BALLAD OF JAYNE by LA Guns

    Those were a few I had thought about this weekend.

    Cool

    Methinks that "Reapthewildwind" doth quote the band A Perfect Circle "3 Libras" which while an excellant tune from an exceptional cd- Mer De Noms. A cd that came out fairly recently and not from the retro years. Oh well, thought I'd point that out.

    A couple obscure yet fully cool ballads:
    TNT- I'd Be Lost Without Your Love (Knights of the New Thunder)
    TNT- Tonight I'm Fallin (Intuition)
    *Tony Harnell- one of the best vocalists ever.
    Danger Danger- I Still Think About You (Screw It)

    And YES on that UB40 Can't Help Fallin In Love!! I played it on my Flashback Lunch today.(:
