  1. Hard to believe this song is nearly 35 years old. She may have just scored her 50th number 1 on BB Dance Charts, but her ballads are just as amazing. Among her best are: Crazy for you, Live to Tell, The Look of Love, Spanish Eyes, Oh Father, Promise to Try, Sooner or Later, Justify my Love, This used to be my Playground, Rain, I’ll Remember, Take a Bow, Sanctuary, You’ll See, You must love me, Don’t Cry for me Argentina, Drowned World/Substitute for Love, The Power of Good Bye, Time Stood Still, I deserve it, Gone, Nothing Fails, Hey You, Devil Wouldn’t Recognize You, Masterpiece, Ghost Town, Joan of Arc, Devil Pray, Crave, I Rise, Killers who are Partying, Extreme Occident, Looking for Mercy, etc…. i think she should release a box set with her greatest dance numbers, followed by her biggest ballads and another couple discs with Unreleased tracks and B Sides.
