    OK..so..I feel there are very few people that like the kind of music that I listen to and it kinda freaks me out...Does anyone like soft rock..?..especially those in the 70s and 80s?...So I guess the following will fall under that group

    Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough
    UP WHERE WE BELONG - JOE COCKER AND JENNIFER WARNES
    Foreigner-I Want to Know What Love Is
    Heart - These Dreams (1985)
    Journey - Faithfully
    REO Speedwagon 'Can't Fight This Feeling'
    Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart
    Chicago - Hard To Say I'm Sorry (1982)
    Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart

    I don't know how you define soft rock; I'm guessing simply classic rock, which is pretty 'soft' to today's standards.

    Try listening to

    The Kinks
    The Animals
    Lynyrd Syknyrd
    Pink Floyd

    Edit: Since you were specific with songs, I'll be a little specific with these groups, but don't limit them to just these songs, there are many more too - many metal and hard rock bands offer 'soft rock' songs too, or ballads, only usually one or two, but 95% of the time they are awesome.

    The Kinks - Lola
    The Animals - The House of the Rising Sun
    Lynyrd Skynyrd - Simple Man
    Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb

    yeah i like that sort of stuff - i don't know really the difference between all the different types of rock, i just likes me rock n roll - anything with guitars as long as it isn't metal - just shouting

    I love the Kinks/the Beatles/Lynyrd Skynyrd/Elvis Costello - think that's all soft rock - haha

    mainly into the blues at the moment, love Eric Clapton - i know that's not soft rock though

    Thin Lizzy are a hard rock band but they do have some good softer songs too:

    From Thin Lizzy album: Dublin
    Bad Reputation: Southbound and Dancing in the Moonlight
    Black Rose: Sarah
    Chinatown: Didn't I
    Fighting: Wild One
    Jailbreak: Running Back, Cowboy Song and Fight or Fall
    Nightlife: Still in Love with You


    Sorry but I try to pigeonhole Thin Lizzy into any thread I can.

    'fraid I don't really listen to any of the ones you listed - although I do like a few songs by Journey, and that's about it

    Both are modern bands and used to be or had members in heavy bands but Anathema and Aeon Spoke might interest you.

    I like the sort of music you describe in your first post O.P.

    I seriously recommend the following 'soft rock' records, they're some of the tracks I've really been enjoying recently and I don't think you'll be disappointed;

    Everywhere - Fleetwood Mac;
    Romeo and Juliet - Dire Straits;
    How Deep Is Your Love - Bee Gees;
    Africa - Toto;
    True Colours - Cindi Lauper.

    Try those on for size buddy!
