Default The Most Underrated Ballads

Hello everyone! As you know, Bon Jovi has a lot of great ballads that have been underrated. In my opinion, I'll start with "Without Love," "Love Lies," "The Price of Love," "I Am," and "Hearts Breaking Even." Which ones do you think should be included and why?

Here's a hot take, and I'll add the caveats that A) I definitely don't think it's one of their best ballads, and B) I don't even think it's a particularly good song, at least how it is. But I was listening through the Circle for the first time and a while, and I was struck by how much potential 'Live Before You Die' had. With just a little extra thought I think that really could have shined (yes, there's a ton of songs the past two decades that hypothetical could be applied to). But even as is I was surprised that I enjoyed it. Not amazing, but definitely not bad either. I feel like we've had to move the psychological goalposts so much with this band to stick with them the past ten years, that if a song like this was on the most recent album we'd probably have people claiming it was one of the best things they've done in the past 20 years, etc.

I don't really feel that The Price of Love is a ballad at all. I Am is borderline. Both very good songs though.

Bells Of Freedom for me. Always liked that song.

I've also always liked Learn To Love, which seems to be a pretty hated song on here.

My Guitar Lies Bleeding In My Arms - for me one of the best Bon Jovi songs ever.

Learn To Love is top 3 from the Circle for me (along with Brokenpromiseland and Happy Now)
