You should give me a chance
This can’t be the end
I’m still loving you
from “Still Loving You” by Scorpions
While I love Bon Jovi and their ballads, as well as many others out there, Still Loving You ranks as my number one metal ballad. Klaus Meine’s got a great voice and he pours all his angst into his pleading vocals, professing his undying love.
The video is from the Acoustica performance in Portugal. I enjoy the sound of this version, but it doesn’t have quite the same impact without the soaring vocals Klaus has in the original version.
We have a love that’s strong and true
It’s true in every way
I want to be with you
Each and every day
from “Happy” by Surface
Oh yeah! This was the jam back in the day. Surface made quite a living on their love songs.

Do you see what I see
A rainbow shining over us
In the middle of a hopeless storm
from “I’m Free” by Jon Secada
Jon Secada has a great voice and this is a great song. Such a powerful message. When things look bleak, look for the positives, the signs that things will get better.
Got fire in your veins, burning hot
but you don’t feel the pain
Your desire is insane, you can’t stop
until you do it again
from “Urgent” by Foreigner
Great energy in this song. It conveys the need, the hunger, the…urgency.
