If nothing else, I can't believe you left out "I Love U In Me".

Nothing to add, indeed. Let's make a new list, as I understand ballads to be:

Crazy You
So Blue
When We're Dancing Close And Slow
With You
Do Me, Baby
International Lover
The Beautiful Ones
Under The Cherry Moon
Slow Love
Adore
When 2 R In Love
The Arms of Orion
Scandalous
The Question of U
Insatiable
Damn U
Pink Cashmere
I Love U In Me
How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore
Shhh
The Most Beautiful Girl In The World
Betcha By Golly Wow!
I Can't Make You Love Me
One Kiss At A Time
Soul Sanctuary
Friend, Lover, Sister, Mother/Wife
La, La, La Means I Love U
Extraordinary
The One
Call My Name

White Mansion and Gold are far from ballads..

the Infidel's list is more like it. Though, i'd add God [Instrumental], Venus de Milo, Scandalous Sex Suite, Dreamin' About You, She Loves Me For Me and practically all of the One Night Alone studio album.

I like Dark and I Love U, But I Don't Trust You Anymore, but i'm not sure those're "love" songs...

I like the lists particularily, "Money Don't Matter 2 Night," "One Kiss At A Time" and "Soul Sanctuary." For me I'd add, "Silly Game."

Yeah, I can't believe I forgot about the One Night Alone album. I guess it's because I just got it recently and haven't had a chance to fully absorb it yet. That, and the fact that I was perusing my cd's to make that list, and I only have the ONA album in mp3 form on my player.

I considered the Scandalous Sex Suite as well, but I figured if you're looking for songs to play on a date, why would you want to listen to someone else getting lucky on his date?

It's a really great album. So, of course, it makes perfect sense that he never released it.

Dude...I don't even consider what Sinead O'Buzzcut did to be a "version". Her doing that song was in the same category as Pat Boone doing metal.
