What are some popular power ballads and/or artists I can draw inspiration from?

I'm too lazy to find youtube videos:
Guns N' Roses - Patience
Guns N' Roses - November Rain
Kiss - Beth

I'll post one youtube video for the greatest power ballad ever:

I see a bunch of embedded youtube videos.

EDIT: Never mind, YouTube can't be viewed at work.

Now I've got to load up some 80s thrash metal...

Oh man. Meatloaf. You already brought out the big guns. But let me add these:

Audio quality isn't all that great, but I particularly love this rendition because they really put a little drive in it. That show is actually just plain awesome in general.

Meatloaf: 2 out of 3 Ain't Bad

(edit -- replaced with the album track - his voice was thrashed by that point in the concert)

And he's still got it. Meatloaf and Marion Raven: It's All Coming Back to Me

I don't know if this counts as "power", but it's a rocker doing a ballad. KISS: Beth

(this acoustic version is better, musically speaking: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_9DoYjfSjc)

Nazareth: Love Hurts

Def Leppard - Love Bites

Why does this thread feel like a middle-school dance?

Because we listened to most of this stuff at middle-school dances.

Because you're not doing anywhere near as much groping as you wish you could?

My life could use a little more groping.

Reo Speedwagon - Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore

(Can't find the original video on youtube, so this is a newer concert video. Kevin Cronin's voice has not aged well)

The still used by that video makes him look like Scott Bakula with long blond hair.

WTF?!?! No Aerosmith?!?!?!? What is wrong with you people?!?!?!?

Alicia is so hot.

Shoeboxed is the sh*t. It's free too, you only pay if you mail them stuff to scan in for you.

A little late. They did not defend the marks and copyrights against Blizzard...EVER!

And I have railed against this before. But Amazon, Google, Facebook, etc. roll over backwards to these. The discovery requests that they respond to are insane. Their stock response is, take-down, hurt the small artist, and then let the artist foot the bill in a fight. Imagine if your doctor did that with your health records.

Never?

I'm hoping that the EFF or one of the other legal groups steps in. Or Activision/Blizzard, I guess.

Yeah, the comments start to get pretty punny.

My wife and I are looking at a new Wii game to play together. Top candidates right now are New Super Mario Bros, Super Smash Bros, or Mario Kart- in that order.

Which should we get? I have heard of stories about NSMB leading to divorce.

What kind of games do you like, what games have you played together, and what's her experience level?

Boomblox mostly, some Wii Sports. She is pretty casual and occasional.
