guilty pleasure #9

As a follow up to the recent post that featured Whitesnake's "Here I Go Again", I've been thinking about how much I enjoyed those great power ballads of the 80s and the 90s. There doesn't seem to be the same popularity of power ballads in music today which is too bad.

The songs, epic in their scope, with their raspy vocals and long and loud guitar chords provide great fodder for videos. Women in white dresses running down hallways, mythical creatures, longing looks at the camera, sheer brilliance. And don't forget about the big hair.

The following is one of my favourites. I'm a Nancy Wilson and Heart fan. i think her voice is incredible. Plus it was great seeing women who really just rocked.
