Hard Rock and Power Ballads

Do you have a playlist of hard rock and / or power ballads?  What are your favorite hard rock or power ballads? I'm putting together my own playlist, and I don't want to miss any good ones!

 

In 2017, the Scorpions released an album, Born to Touch Your Feelings: Best of Rock Ballads, a collection of their most popular rock ballads, which is amazing. I'll start with one of my favorites from that album - - - 

 

Send Me An Angel  -  Scorpions

I rarely see this ballad mentioned in the power ballad playlists, probably because of this group's more popular hit, Every Rose Has Its Thorn. Usually, it's the "love" power ballads that come to mind. This one is heartbreaking and sad, but very well done. Poison was never one of my favorite bands, but both ballads are on my playlist.
