Top 80s Rock Ballads For Valentine's Day

(Gibson) Sure, '80s rock ballads can be hilarious and nonsensical at times. But there's something to be said for a big-sounding, from-the-heart arena ballad with cheesy lyrics and grandiose guitars. In other words, there's nothing quite like a '80s rock ballad to see you through Valentine's Day, whether you're alone or newly in love. Gibson has compiled a list of 10 ballads to check out for Valentine's Day. Here are a three:

Aerosmith, "Angel": Valentine's Day brings out images of cherubs and angels, so Aerosmith's "Angel" seems a good fit. Steven Tyler croons, "Come and save me tonight," the girls come running. Proof lies in the fact that "Angel" was one of the band's highest charting singles of the era. What can we say? People love a good love balled.

Guns N' Roses, "Sweet Child O' Mine": What's not to love about this bad-boy-tuned-good song from Guns N' Roses? Those party-happy rockers show off their romantic side in this classic, and it's about as romantic as Guns N' Roses gets.

Journey, "Open Arms": Journey's "Open Arms" is the perfect tune for someone taking back their ex. The song tells the tale of a love asking for forgiveness after some mistake. So, if you cheated on your girl or guy (which we don't recommend, by the way), this may be the tune to help make things right again. See what other songs made the list here.
