Just don’t take my word for it! This is a list compiled by my friends and followers in a previous radio DJ incarnation. From a list of nearly 200 hundred songs a list of the 50 greatest Power Ballads of all time was compiled following a (sort of) scientific voting system; basically the video of each song was posted on Facebook with points given based on Loves, Wows, Laughs, Likes and Angry clicks.
