14 Days of Ballads Countdown to Valentine’s Day 2012


Top Rock Ballads

Growing up in the 80′s and more specifically being in High School at the end of the 80′s I consider myself lucky to have the best music for the hopeless romantic in me. The 80′s hair bands gave us such great music to dedicate to that special someone and more importantly, it gave us beautiful music to cope with break-ups. Being a  headbanger made it impossible to show true emotions but because the words were being sung by guys in spandex, high hair and more make-up than your sister; it was OK.

So as February started and the countdown to valentine’s Day 2012 started, I thought what better way to highlight those songs that had all the cool kids lip syncing into a beer bottles on weekend nights throughout their lost teen years. I picked one for each day leading up to February 14. I’m sure my list will differ from others but I’m confident that all would at least make the list 9 out of 10 times. And before anyone mentions it – some of the songs were post 80′s but not by much.
