I consider that post-hair era.

Also there are a lot of songs that I did not consider "Power Ballads". An exact science this is not.


As far as Reinheit's list, I'm headed to iTunes now. There's a couple I've never heard of.

If you're bringing Sara into this, I'll counter with "Amanda" from Boston.

Also, "The Flame" belongs on my list somewhere.

Maybe not a "power" ballad, but the best overall ballad is "More Than Words" by Extreme.

With a record of 109-23 and 6 Big 12 titles in 10 seasons, Stoops has reason to be arrogant. But he is not. He is somewhere between humble and unimpressed.

I like "Headed for a Heartbreak", but that was from Winger, not Warrant.
