in the recent classic rock there was a list of the 50 greatest power ballads from which queen were disqualified for being "too theatrical". if they hadnt been bizarrly disqualified which queens power ballad(s) do you believe should be in the top 50

however at the risk of sounding predictable i think that the show must go on is the ultimate queen power ballad. in the classic rock list i dont want to miss athing won which is a shockin decision in my view

Yeah.
We may not forget 'A Winter´s Tale'! It´s a absolutely fantastic song!
But my favourite one is 'Mother Love'!

"love of my life" and "a winter's tale" are very far from being power ballads. They're just ballads.

I think 'Love Of My Life' and 'It´s A Hard Life' are some of the best songs they ever did!
'I´m In Love With My Car' shows how much Rog loves cars!

The Show Must Go On is probably the best Queen power ballad, I'm not sure Who Wants To Live Forever really counts....

Please define 'power ballad'.

Save Me, Sail Away Sweet Sister were two great ones...also Who Wants To Live Forever, Don't Try So Hard, Too Much Love, Mother Love...they had a few....at least the first two aren't very theatrical...
