Sentimental ballad

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A sentimental ballad is an emotional style of music that has to do with romantic and intimate relationships and sometimes it is about loneliness, death, war, drug abuse, politics and religion, usually in a poignant but solemn manner.[1]

Sentimental ballads are found in most music genres, such as pop, R&B, soul, country, folk, rock and electronic music.[2]
