So, what would you say the greatest stadium rock/power ballads are?
Those songs that stop a croud in their bounce and urge them to pull out a lighter and wave it above their head to the music as it stirs their heart strings.

Don't Stop being crazy by Helloween is pretty good. But man, power metal is lame and then there is power ballads which is a whole new level of lame... and I love it.

Well, because they're pretty damn hard rockers. ;) Power ballads are set over slow beats and generally rely on chords more than riffs. Often have pianos thrown in too.

Hmm...I've always had a personal preference to Sleeping In the Fire. But.....damn I love The Idol though...

I agree though; a shame the song was cut :(

The Sprite carries on... haha! Have you heard Petrucci's vocal rendition? ridiculous.

I personally think Another Day by DT is better. Lost WIthout You is an instrumental by John Petrucci. WOuld that count?
