Cool I think a great ballad in music is a beautiful thing.  Music really is an emotional thing with me and a great ballad can move me more than any other medium (TV/movie/play/whatever).

I also think that for every good ballad there are 10 to 15 awful ones.  In fact, I would imagine that if I chose an all time awful song list; ballads would be all that's on it.

Anyway, I'm not sure my definition of a ballad will match yours but here it is anyway.

Some really great ballads (in no particular order)

Sinead O'Connor - Troy (supreme emotion set to music)

OMD - The Romance Of The Telescope (OMD did great ballads, this is my favorite)

Echo & The Bunnymen - Rust (this is newer E&TB, 1999 I think)

Killing Joke - You'll Never Get To Me (one of the hardest ballads ever)

Tom Petty - Free Falling (love the guitar)

The Cars - All Mixed Up (I usually don't like Cars ballads, but this one is great)

Mazzy Star - Fade Into You (only Mazzy Star song I know)

Interpol - Lief Erikson (best album closer ever)

Chris Isaac - Wicked Game (very sexy ballad)

Jesus And Mary Chain - Just Like Honey (superb, JAMC song)

That's just a few, I'm sure I forgot many, but this was fun to think about.

What do you think?
