Many great ballads has been listed so far, but my favorite post 2000 will always be “She’s A Mystery”. Idk why, maybe the memories connected to that song is what makes it so unique, but it also makes it so that I can barely listen to it. It has to be a special occasion of some sort.
I know it was written before 2000s etc. but I’ll count it anyway ��

I like that this song is getting some love. It's a much maligned song but I don't know why. It's beautiful.

It has its incomparable vibe and charm, maybe not suited for everyone. Very underrated and in my opinion; under appreciated. Oh well

There are ballads and love songs.

If we are talking about traditional ballads, TAALS, which is mirrored after I'll Be There for You, might be it...

Right Side Of Wrong is questionable and Save The World, which is mirrored after Always, could also be debated as well.

Luv Can

There's something about that song that just pulls me in on every listen, the lyrical content, the melody and production it's a excellent track. It's too bad the song fell victim to being on the band's pandemic record.

Luv Can honestly deserves to be released/reissued as a standalone EP along with Shine too or with the band's upcoming record (when there is one)

I had never heard of this song and went to YouTube. I now know why I've never heard it as it was listed as a bonus for 2020. I can't listen to 2020 and I couldn't get through Luv Can either!

Hello again, it's you and me
Kinda always like it used to be
Sippin' wine, killing time
Trying to solve life's mysteries
How's your life, it's been a while?
God it's good to see you smile
I see you reaching for your keys
Looking for a reason not to leave
If you don't know if you should stay
If you don't say what's on your mind
Baby just breathe
There's nowhere else tonight we should be
You wanna make a memory
I dug up this old photograph
Look at all that hair we had
It's bitter sweet to hear you laugh
Your phone is ringin' I don't wanna ask
If you go now I'll understand
If you stay, hey, I've gotta plan
You wanna make a memory?
You wanna steal a piece of time?
You can sing the melody to me
And I can write a couple lines
You wanna make a memory
If you don't know if you should stay
And you don't say what's on your mind
Baby just breathe
There's nowhere else tonight we should be (We should be)
(We should be)
You wanna make a memory?
You wanna steal a piece of time?
You can sing the melody to me
And I can write a couple lines
You wanna make a memory
You wanna make a memory

Jon's voice was great on this song.

This song is as close to perfection as it can be. I also like Luv Can and other titles you all mentioned in this thread but MAM must be the one that's best for me.

As much as I enjoy Luv Can, I actually much prefer Shine. I love when that first chorus hits. Both songs should have been on 2020. They're my most played tracks on the album. Waaaaaaaaaayyyyy better than Unbroken which is such a shit song. Such a shame that American Reckoning and Do What You Can made way for these two great tracks. Should have been the other way around.
