    Hi all !

    Apologies for the tardiness but I felt that I simply HAD to add my own personal favourite/favorite to this superb list !

    Desert Moon - Dennis DeYoung

    I searched for many years for this tune on CD and finally got lucky on eBay with a great '84 compilation called 'Class Reunion'

    Before I go, may I also add 'La Isla Bonita' by Madonna to this list ?! Oh...another one just popped into my head, US and other non-Europeans (maybe even non-Irish) may not be familiar with so take my word for it !

    Clannad with Bono - In A Lifetime

    I'm gone !

    Eveyone is posting so many of the great ballads... you're not leaving me any!!

    Well, I don't think I saw "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton on anyone's list...

    And how about Hurricane's "Over the Edge" it's more of a rockin' ballad... but a ballad nonetheless!

    Oh and another one that makes me bawl like a baby...
    "Calm Before the Storm" by Keel... I tried to find it on Napster just now... no way!! They sure are filtering our songs!!!

    Has anyone mentioned "Carrie" by Europe?
    Just another one....

    My god people, nobody mentioned ENDLESS LOVE by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie yet? Yeah, they played it on the radio 'till we were all sick to death of it, but fess up, come on, everybody's got some memories to go along with that one

    Another favorite is Hot Rod Hearts by Robbie Dupree. Pretty much everything else I can think of has been mentioned already. Goodybe to Romance by Ozzy was the first song I ever learned to play on guitar (well, the guitar part was by Randy Rhoads). Ball and Chain by Aldo Nova - it's good to know I'm not the only person in the world ever to hear of that song! And then there was Crimson and Clover by Joan Jett. Was she still with the Blackhearts on that album?

    Tinajo, I actually have "Calm befor the storm" on CD. The entire cd is average 80s hair metal, (my favorite music BTW) but that is definately the best song on it.
