I Want To Know What Love Is by Foreigner wins my vote for greatest power ballad of all time


I listen to it in the morning while combing my hair in the mirror

"I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)" by Meatloaf or "Total Eclipe of the Heart" by Bonnie Tyler.

Probably not a coincidence they were both written by Jim Steinman. "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" is another one by him that I love.

One by Metallica.

Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please God, wake me

Always gets the ladies in the mood.

Maybe I'm Amazed by Paul McCartney. One of the earliest and still the best.

😴 sappy, tedious and like most Beatles songs is so overplayed I would be happy never hearing it again. You want a good Beatles song check out George Harrison’s “What is Life.”

reply

Sappy? Unlike I want to know what love is? OK...

reply

Yes sappy, and boring. I want to know what love is is corny not sappy. Big difference.

reply

I'd say I want to know... is both. But I find your favorite kind of boring. I'll take McCartney's lyrics and vocals and that soaring piano and guitar on Maybe over that anytime. That's personal taste though.

What you're saying is like hating on the The Silence of the Lambs for for being too gory when your favorite horror movie is Friday the 13th part 5.
