2 i can think of off the top of my head.
Karma police- Radiohead,
Black hole sun- SoundGarden,
and some Tool are about as soft as i can go.
Actually, there are so many ballads that I like. here are just a few:
Fade To Black - Metallica
Unforgiven - Metallica
Nothing Else Matters- Metallica
Still loving you - Scorpions
Winds of Change - Scorpions
Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynrd
Don't Cry - G-N-F-R
Remember Yesterday - Skid Row

I am a counting crows fan. I really enjoy Adam Duritz' lyrics.
thought of some more :-)
When the Children Cry - White Lion
My Immortal - Evenesence
Pearl Jam - Betterman
Pearl Jam - Jeremy
Silverchair - Petrol & Chlorine
Not really into 80's ballads and stuff, too cheesy.
