For me, these are two of my favorite '80s ballads. I know, there are a lot of great ones, maybe my favorite, "I Remember You" by Skid Row. But these two seem like they defined the mid to early '80s ballads.

If I had to pick a favorite 80s ballad it would be "Still Loving You" by the Scorpions.

I prefer Love Song, but I always felt it was somewhat apart from the 80's hair metal power ballads. I really felt like all their stuff was a bit different in that way. More substance, less fluff.

What about "Waiting For Love" by Alias?

"Dont Know What You Got" by CInderella?

"Life Loves A Tragedy" - Poison?

"I'll Never Let You Go" - Steelheart


Edit: the Poison song was on their 1990 album Flesh & Blood, but since the song had '89 potential, I'm going with it.

Skid Row, "I Remember You" is my all time fave hair ballad. "Wasted Time" is also an amazing rock vocal performance by Bas. That is an AMAZING performance for that type of tune. SR was my fave popular/radio rock band of that era and, listening back to them, they were WAY heavier/dirtier/punkier than most of their peers who actually had mass success.

ballad of jane
As far as the radio goes, I hear ballad of jane ONCE for every 1000 times I hear the beginning of "love song" and turn the channel

tesla has so many great tunes, love song isnt even in the top 10 for me (signs either for that matter...but la guns is a one hit wonder imo...ballad of jane is it

I voted Tesla always loved that one but as far as defining early 80's power ballad I would go with Motley Crue's Home Sweet Home.
