I’ll be sharing one of my favorite Power Ballads, each day on Facebook and on this blog, from now until February 14th. I think of these songs as the Valentine’s Day equivalent of Christmas Carols. I call it A Fortnight From The Heart.
Day 13: “When Doves Cry” by Prince and The Revolution
A lot of folks might question the decision to put Prince’s major hit “When Doves Cry” on a list of Power Ballads. And while it isn’t traditionally considered part of the genre, the song has a lot of Power Ballad qualities. Sick guitar licks, emotional lyrics, shrieking lyrics, the song is performed by a glamorous singer with intense hair… The big difference is this song is around six minutes long, and remains liked by many to this day.
