Hevay Metal and Rock bands prove themselves the most accomplished and proficient often by virtue of the sometimes fantastic ballads they pen. Who can forget Gary Moore's "Empty rooms", Journey's "Who's crying now?" or even Zep's "Going to California", or GnR's "November rain"?
So which are your favourite rock/metal ballads?

I've never heard any metal or proto-metal balladry better than this . . .


Mountain, "Theme for an Imaginary Western"


Mountain, "Nantucket Sleighride"


Blue Oyster Cult, "I Love the Night"


Led Zeppelin, "Stairway to Heaven" (admit it---anyone who says this one's been beaten to death is just a sourpuss . . . )
