Weekly Soundtrack 2/17

Category : Blog Archive Feb 17th, 2009

Apologies for the soundtrack being late this week. I’m madly trying to finish my master’s thesis.

Since I’ve spent the week listening to classic power ballads–for research purposes, of course–so will you. I believe that the power ballad has two flavors: that of the heavy metal rocker and that of the soul diva. A little of both varieties represented here.

Poison: Every Rose Has Its Thorn
Foreigner: I Want to Know What Love Is
Mötley Crüe: Home Sweet Home
Aerosmith: Dream On
Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart
Celine Dion: All By Myself
Cyndi Lauper: Time After Time
Whitney Houston: I Will Always Love You
