Y&T - Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

While listening to this great song, I'm reminded of what's missing in today's music. Everything.

Guitar riffs, guitar solos, guitar fills, intros, outros, big drums, harmony, melody, hooks, etc. Everything!

Yes, the Power Ballads are always associated with Scorpions and they are great indeed.
What about the other German stars of the 80's - Accept.
In their early works, they have such a song too - No Time to Lose (1980)
I don't know if somebody posted this before.

Not much into 'power ballads' or ballads period but if pushed probably RAINBOW and TEARING OUT MY HEART from the STRAIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES album from 1982 and CAN'T LET YOU GO from the BENT OUT OF SHAPE album from 1983 both songs sung by Joe Lynn Turner.
