I pretty much agree with your assessment of the 1987 songs except I would put Children of the Night with the good songs. Here I Go Again sticks out like a sore thumb for me because of Adrian's crap guitar solo.

Looking for Love and You're Gonna Break My Heart Again were also good songs. Too bad they got left off the original US release.
