I love to hear my most favorite singer James Otto sing "Never Say Good Bye", "For You", and "Lets Just Let Go".

God bless you and him always!!!

This one really needs a guitar solo instead of a sax solo.

I'd go for Still Loving You, by The Scorpions.
They've a good track record with power ballads, such as Holiday, Always Somewhere and Wind Of Change.

That's my favourite song of hers, can't believe I didn't mention that in my post. I guess It's all coming back to me now came to mind more quickly at the mention of power ballad, but Think Twice is her best.

Thinking about it, my favourite is probably "Love Walked In" by Thunder.
