I need to list 10 ballads from the prog genre to a friend and I can't remember much

All the ones I'm able to think of have a turning point to a thump or begin as a soft ballad before they get into the fast part. If you remember any please mention them here.
Cheers

The most heart-wrenching of all to me is "Tears for a Father" from Seventh Wonder. Simply a beautiful track..... Not necessarily as personal or emotionally connected as the aforementioned "Walk" by Pantera, but certainly a close second. :)
