I Love 1986
Music

Jennifer Rush
VIDEO CLIP:
RealMedia: Power Ballads


Power Ballads

1986 was a great year for epic love songs. In the space of a few months came The Power Of Love by Jennifer Rush, Take My Breath Away by Berlin, The Final Countdown by Europe and Just Died In Your Arms Tonight by Cutting Crew.

If you were inspired to light your Zippo and sway it was bound to be a hit power ballad. The songs had great lyrics and strong melody and were full of emotion!

Take My Breath Away will always be remembered in Top Gun when Tom Cruise finally gets the girl. Power Ballads were always about ill-fated love and were great for wallowing in self pity after being dumped!
