What Is The Best Power Ballad Of All Time
 
I think the Scorpions "Still Loving You " is a crushing power ballad.......

I'd have to agree. I can't name any better ones right now.

Blech. I used to love the Scorpions, but now they just sound like dull, sanitized arena rock. They desperately needed a singer with actual personality.

I'm gonna go to the early eighties and throw out Motley Crue's "Starry Eyes". A power ballad that you don't have to feel embarrassed to listen to.

No, Sodom, Blind Guardian, and Can, were the best things to come outta Germany. The Scorpions were just heavy enough to appeal to Iron Maiden fans but just dull enough not to alienate Def Leppard fans. Two bands that are infinitely better than the Scorpions I might add.

Ahh, Blind Guardian. I'll give you that.

Beyond music...how could we forget about the brilliant Uwe Boll. His work is...uhm...sh*t, at best.

That album is chock full of power ballad gems. I'd throw On With the Show and Merry Go Round out there also, great album.

The Scorpions were a great choice for ballads. I think he had one of the better voices in rock n roll in the early 80's era. I probably would have picked Theres No One Like You however. Blackout is an outstanding album.
