This thread has been started because of an idea a few of us had and which some of us, such as myself, Kathy LAFD and Petra decided to go a stage further with and come on here and ask you to post FIVE songs that Michael has not sung on stage, rarely sings on stage or, has not sung for a number of years, which you would love to hear him singing at a concert. We know and understand, everyone has their own favourites and some are probably those that Michael has in his set list at present, like Steel Bars, When A Man Loves A Woman, but we ask you to think carefully about your FIVE songs and to try and pick those that he seldom sings but which YOU love.
What we hope to achieve is a list, of the TOP 10 songs that YOU will have chosen, which we can present to Michael and ask him to give consideration to possibly including, at least, one of the songs on his set list during 2015 as it being a song voted on by his fans. We have asked Gail, moderator of the forum, for permission to do this and also if she would be willing to pass our list to Michael and she believes a good idea and has agreed to pass to Michael on our behalf. Have to make it very clear, whilst list will be passed to Michael, it gives no guarantee you will hear one of your songs at a concert you go to, nor does it guarantee, Michael will feel it relevant, to include any of the songs voted on, in his 2015 set list.
We hope it lets Michael see how much we care about his music and how much we love it all. Also how much we appreciate the way Michael involves his audience, US, so much in all of his shows and how much we all thank him for doing so. Have also to say hope it lets him see how much fun we all have coming together on this forum which is a part of Michael's website and for those that do not know, this was something Michael himself asked be included when this website was set up. The facility of a forum is available on these sites but the great majority of celebrities do not give this to their fans i.e they don't pay for it, as Michael does, for us.
We are asking that you have your FIVE songs posted on this thread by 1st December so, before the Christmas rush starts, we are able to draw up the TOP 10 list. It will also give Gail the opportunity to send to Michael before 2015 arrives. Only one post, containing five songs, is allowed per person.
In advance, we want to thank everyone who comes onto this thread, for your support is more than appreciated and we also hope you have FUN in thinking up your FIVE songs. We also hope, during 2015, Michael sings all your favourites and each and everyone of you has a concert, as near your doorstep as can be, so that you get to a show next year

Almost an impossible job to choose 5 songs, but 5 i have' nt heard Michael sing for a while are :- from Kay
1........Once in a lifetime.
2........Soul of my soul.
4........I promise You. (I walked down the aisle to this 2 yrs ago :) )
5........Only a woman like you. ( Michael sang this live on tv on bbc songs of praise from Birmingham and i was on my own seated in 2nd row i stood up and sang the whole song with him ..omg i watched the recording when back home ...He must have thought who is that stupid woman !
Hi Kay, aww, thanks for sharing why Michael's songs mean so much to you... I doubt that Michael thought you were stupid, a little nutty maybe, but not stupid! lol But seriously, I'm sure Michael was touched that the song was so special to you that you'd have the guts to do that, good for you Kay! Take care and thanks again. Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Ive loved Michael a long time, followed him all over, got all sorts of souveniers,and done lots of nutty things that non Michael fans dont understand loved taking part in this top 5 list xxxxxxxxxxx
