There is no way I could pick a top 5 list. But I could start with what I am listening to right now....

Shalamar - this is for the lover in you
Patti La Belle - Love Need and Want You
Atlantic Starr - Am I Dreaming
Confunction - Straight from the heart
Luther Vandross- SuperStar_Until You Come Back To Me (That's What I'm Gonna Do)

Most all of the "old coots" are familiar with this soul ballad by Billy Paul. And of course Cheech & Chongs rendition of the original ballad.

I have tried to find live versions when I can to embellish my reasons.

Yes he is primarily a Reggae artist and it is instantly recognisable but this live version is absolutely magnetic:


A stunning voice backed by a stunning live band. Her voice is sublime.


I do apologise about the silly twat including in the ads at the at the start of the vid. Not strictly a ballad but it has such a sweet, smoky centre that I love and every single musician is ON it:


The finest Soul track ever put down.


I know this has a huge sample but So what? It is magisterial:


Not all strictly ballads but all worthy.

I love James Ingram and Stevie Wonder's songs.
For me, they are timeless!
