Happy Music Monday! Scott’s rested after his vacation and he’s ready to take the long, hard trip back to the 1980s, where he can collect some ballads. Join him, won’t you?
The 1980s were a great time for the bombastic power ballad. Be it the first dance at the prom or a gloomy dream-sequence beside a Christmas tree, the ballad was there! And Heart was super-good at using the ballad to create the perfect atmosphere for all situations. Singing alone in the car? Works! Dreaming about a lost love? Works! Trying to win over someone at karaoke? Works!
The ‘80s ballads are only gettin’ better. See you after the jump!
