When compared to the otherworldly rock anthem “Don’t tell me you love me” it was the perfect juxtaposition in style. It deserves consideration.

I think you’ve miscategorized it. It’s a POWER ballad as opposed to a ROCK ballad. Definitely not the greatest ROCK ballad, but the argument for POWER ballad could be made.

"Sister Christian" is the best power ballad of all-time. Other contenders might be:

"I Remember You" - Skid Row
"Alone Again" - Dokken
"Home Sweet Home" - Motley Crue
"Never Say Goodbye" - Bon Jovi
"Love Bites" - Def Leppard

I will say that "Sister Christian" has one major flaw though.. and that is the missing cymbal crash at 3:38.

There has to be a cymbal crash there. It's almost unforgivable.

I can’t disagree with you, but when the vocals come back in at 3:39 you can’t have the decay of the cymbal crash on top of the vocals AT ALL. How do you remedy that? A couple extra silent beats before the vocals? You can’t choke the cymbal there, it wouldn’t have the same impact.

+1 on Dokken. Even though Don Dokken is a douche bag.

yeah, when the vocals come in right there, it does resolve the melody of the song. I like your idea of a couple of extra beats allowing the crash to dissipate. And, you're right - no cymbal choke there. Gotta be a crash.

me and my buddies debated this endlessly back in the day. Driving around drinking Miller High Life pony bottles. We were wearing jeans, band t-shirts.. mullets. Good times.

So cool. Me and my buddies had a lot of great times when we were kids. Drink beer, chase girls (not sure what we would've done had we caught one), music cranked.. summer workouts getting ready for football seasons. All the important stuff Wink

I'll never forgive them for the absence of a cymbal crash.

Mistakes were made.

We’ve been over this Bob. The vocals simply must come in during silence. The cymbal crash would be appropriate as long as you’re willing to still add the pregnant pause afterwards. It’s not as simple as adding a cymbal crash.
