Hold On by Good Charlotte? I’d prefer Say Anything, Mountain, or Changes, much more slower and romantic. Out of that entire thing probably five songs I liked, ha.
But my favorites would have to be “Silver and Cold” by AFI. Hmm and also Ryan Cabrera’s really good. “Swing, Swing” by All American Rejects. “Collide” by Howie Day. And umm “Simple and Clean” by Utadu Hiraku. But yeah, everyone’s different.

Ahh…yes, I do know that this doesn’t limit your tastes, but see…I just don’t like any of the stuff here. And Kittie and Manson are all right. Kittie can rock it when she wants 😛 I just normally like stuff that’s not on the radio. Hehe, I’ll send you an example of like…just a small few of the bands that are normally on my playlist (I have an ipod…HUZZAH!)

Wow! This must have taken forever to organize and write. I’m not a big ballad person myself, but there are some I like…

‘Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad’ by Meatloaf
‘My only LOve’ by ? -It was sung in the english version of Sailor Moon.

and probably a few others I can’t think of right now.

Hahah, different taste… Hey! I’m still into metal/alternative rock and all that (Marilyn Manson, Linkin Park, Kittie, Insane Clown Posse, and a bunch of others!)… Its so weird, but I honestly like everything 🙂 even country, yeah, sad I know… oh, but my list wasn’t really aiming for metal.. like i said, i was making a more vh1 kinda list thingy, if that makes any sense >.<

Wow…me and you have such different tastes in music, you know? I don’t think there was one song on here that I have ever really liked…LOL Hey, that’s awesome for you though.

My version of a long song is “Perfect Fit” by the Dresden Dolls. I love that song.
