Everybody Hurts isn't one of my favorites but I can deal with it I guess.

Suspicion is beautiful! What about...

To go it alone
And hold it along
Haul it along
And hold it
Blackbirds backwards forwards and fall and hold

How about Electrolite?

One of my favorite REM ballads, and a great way to finish off NAIHF.

In fact I always thought that if REM would have broken up after Bill Berry left the band, Electrolite would have been the last song on the last record, and it would have provided a great and fitting ending to their career.

Maybe not in it's album form, but So. Central Rain, live & acoustic, is sublime.

'Country Feedback' is about five minutes worth of utter perfection.

Followed very closely by 'E-bow the Letter'.

I haven't seen 'I'll Take The Rain' mentioned, so I'll mention it.

Peter Buck probably agrees with you

I'll add my love for Country Feedback. And So. Central Rain.

I just brought green and I adore the untitled last track that has no name I would consider that a ballad

For me, Suspcion, Find the River and Half A World Away. Is Half a World Away a ballad?

I like the Corrs, think they're a better-than-decent pop band. But every once in a while, Andrea's voice just grates on me.

She has this habit of getting nasally and whiny on certain vowel sounds, and it's like nails on a freaking chalkboard.
