Favourite Ballads

488 posts in this topic

We have a hardcore thread so I though there might be room for a ballads thread. So here it is, ballads and love songs and any choons that tug at yer heart strings :crybaby:

And to start it off we have the King of Rock and/ or roll himself, Elvis with In the Ghetto.

And second up for me has to be "The killing of Georgie" always sends a wee shiver down me spine. Rod Stewart at his absolute best

Virtually every song by this man makes me wanna cry. He is the late, great John Martyn. God I miss him, saw him live and was one of my best gigs ever.

John Martyn - Couldn't love you more :crybaby:

Spencer the rover :)

Had a break from gaming the other night and played music for 8 hours solid, and Mr Martyn was a fair bit of that.

for my own choice, I wont link because it might disrupt the thread, but could I have Prodigy Slap My Bitch Up

Cheers OG, fixed it now with the album version another vid. Shame, it was a great live version.

I see what you mean, they are both great songs though :)

I'm having trouble keeping up, slow down lol lol

Never heard of the other vids, OG. Just listening to 'em now

Goldie, me young mucker. I aint that old lmfao

Luckily I had older brothers who introduced me to great sounds at a very young age. At 11 yrs old my favourite album was Pink Floyd-The Wall lol
