Bitterness is for the birds. And sweeping generalizations rarely, if ever, hold true. All women are not bitter, and along those lines, all men are not emotionally bankrupt. A call came in just last night from a friend who was ready to give up on men. Nonsense, we said, keep an open mind and continue dating. Plenty of men have plenty of love to pour out for the women they adore. The proof is in the lyric. This eclectic mix-'n'-match list of male-sung ballads reveals that men, even tough guys, have feelings too.

We hear them...and we're swooning.
