This song is incredible. The lyrics are written so well, it was written by Dianne Warren. Also Steven Tyler's raspy rocker voice singing all heart felt on the track with the orchestra and Aerosmith rocking' it out. Truly a great song.
Excellent so much emotion it a Perfect wedding song good for people with deep voices xoxo

A simple yet powerfull love song
Most awesome song to come from MetallicaMore comments about Nothing Else Matters - Metallica
tears come to me when I hear this song!
Greatest Skid Row Ballad
In Fact Greatest Skid Row Song, if the Full Album was Like This it Would be the Greatest album of the 80s
Great song just hate they way people talk bad about it because the people who say he's doesn't say what he wouldn't do have never listened to the song because they say it plain as day
An absolute epic among epics, and one of the very few "Epic" Power Ballads (Epic as in length). Jim Steinman's writing and composing ability is perfectly matched by Meat Loafs vocals. A true classic for anyone who knows a thing or two about ballads.More comments about I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)
Amazing song! Intense vocals and it just sends a feeling through you that gives such passion amazing
THE CRUE ROCKS!
the first power ballad, the BEST power ballad
This song started the power ballads so this is totally #1More comments about Home Sweet Home - Motley Crue
What's more romantic than I love you faithfully through everything? And Steve Perry can sing the crap out of any ballad. He's the master!
This song got me through the 6 months I had to spend away from the woman who is now my wife.
steve perry's voice gets into my heartMore comments about Faithfully - Journey
In Sweden, this man is the KING of power ballads!

Greatest power ballad of all time!

B E A utiful ;)
The drums kick in... MOTORIN'
This song is a pure masterpiece it should be number 1
Its an amazing song that gets me every time! It touches my heart every time I hear it! Its strange, but it cheers me up when I am dowm in the dumps! :)
Beautiful song. It really makes a person feel special about the true meaning of it. I particularly love to listen it and feel in care of someone I root for.
I'm a rocker through and through, voting on this one cause I'm not voting for a great song just becaust its in my era, this song is the best ballad of all time.
This should definitely be on top.
A must hear and read the lyrics ;)
WOW! I love this song!
i always smile everytime i hear this song..
Very underrated song, guitar solo is sick
Love the father and daughter connection. Does it not make your spine tingle?
one of my all time favorits. This guys voice was pure grit.
what can you say! the song says it all
One of the best songs ever... this song is true for everyone. First time I heard this I almost cried!
Amazing song, one of the most memorable guitar solos during the culmination. As powerful as Still Loving You by Scorpions
The true definition of powerballad. Maybe the best ever made. This one should be in the top 10. At least above skidrow - I remember you. I also love the small and slow guitar solo
Always makes me cry...
its my favorite song of all time
Bach has an amazing voice.
I really think that metallica is a very good metal ballad band until they went to thrash. The band focuses way more on guitar than many other bands and a lot of people don't like that. Many of their guitar ballads are... Justice for all, ride the lightning, fade to black, nithing else matters, unforgiven, and of course one. In the mind of power ballads one and nothing else matters are probably the only ones that are softer and would fit in the catagory.
I don't really think this is a power ballad in my oppinion, but its a great song by metallica.
I'm surprised this got on the list, but a good song nonetheless
One of the best love songs ever
Great song -- always left off the lists
It's so mellow.. it has to be a ballad... I love this song 8]
The lyrics will melt a womens panties right off.
this is good for a more recent one
So much emotion, it's just a great power ballad!
One of the very best... EVER..
another one I can't believe nobody added, this song is very saddening but uplifting at the same time, personally I think this is the best love song
A great song. Simply... a best one.
Turn up the bass, and play it really loud...
One of the best ballads ever written... its fantastic.

The greatest power ballad of all times from an extremely accomplished artist. It can be listened to time and time again without becoming wearing.
Great belts, greatest voice, rich tone, one of the best songs sung by Celine, or anyone for that matter!
My wife is a huge fan of INXS and has told me numerous times this is the song she wants played at her's or my funeral.

The guitar solo by Tony Peluso makes this one of the early power ballads-believe it or not! He just takes off but note the cello-like growl.Listen to sample
