Suggestions for songs to be included in Michael's Set List for 2015

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

Picture was taken on 20th May, 2014 at Cliff's Pavilion, Southend-on-Sea, UK and please feel free to use if you wish to.

As we have now reached past midnight EPT, on behalf of Kathy LAFD, Petra and myself, I am now closing this thread to discussion until we come back on with results which will be announced NO later than 4th December and in the meantime we want to say .......................

For Sylvie and Robin I have included an animated photo of a decorative square notice which has a fairy sitting in top right hand corner and part of her showing in bottom left hand corner and words in message read:  "Thank You For Voting & Commenting".  Square has decorative edging and it is flashing as are words and also tips of fairy's wings.   Background colour in box is green with edging and words being in purple/white and fairy is dressed in purple skirt with green top, with curly brown hair and her wings are white   

Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.


Just to let everyone know we are getting there with results and in fact are all in agreement.   What are doing now is designing how we are going to display those results so if you see this thread being opened and closed and with plenty of deletes please ignore for it is "practice" time that is all.   Will be back soon, promise !!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.


Morning !!! :)

Firstly, there will be 3 sections to this post with first being a list of names of all who voted;  second will contain list of all songs voted on along with, in brackets, album song is from, or details of origin of song, and then number of votes cast.  Obviously many songs are contained in many different albums and if you do not recognize album as being one you associate with song we ask you to please check before you might feel tempted to tell us we have made a mistake but obviously, if we have made a mistake then please, please come in and tell us. Also where we have given a description of where song is from I hope you will appreciate that we have tried to keep information to a minimum so as not to bore everyone but obviously feel free to look up details, to check we are right, or to find more information and obviously if you do find more, or know more, and feel it is relevant then please come in and post your information.   Third will contain final results with YOUR choice of Top 10 along with some other details which we hope you find interesting and a little bit of trivial fun.

Have to say at this point, for Sylvie and Robin, third section has a lot of pictures and what I will do is send you a DM giving description of pictures along with your very own final results notice.

Petra, Kathy and Sylvia signing off !!! :)

Wow! What a list! You sure had everyone talking. What will you do for an encore? 5 least favorite songs on the playlist? No one would vote. Great job!

Dear Sylvia, Kathy and Petra,

thank you very much for the publication of the result. You were very, very busy. It's nice how many participated and I think Michael will be thrilled.

Thanks again and I hope you have a little rest and relaxation.

Best regards from Berlin


Hi Sylvia, I am very impressed with all your hard work, which includes the 3 of you. Thanks very much for the added touch of  what album the songs are from, much appreciated, though I would have done it for my own purposes. :D Now, since you've said you didn't mind corrections, here's what I caught:

“All for love” is on the Japanese "Only a woman like you",

“All the way” is on “Vintage"

“Once in a lifetime” is on “Love songs” 2001

“Reach out” is on “Timeless the classics”

“Vivo per lei” is on the German release “Duets” 2011

“When there are no words” “All that matters” U.K.

“you mean more to me” is on “Every day of my life” and yes, it's a CD, I own it. This is really cool Sylvia and I'll definitely keep this list. Again, thanks very much to you, Kathy R and Petra for the fun topic, for all your hard work and here's to Michael considering the list! Take care. Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D

This is brilliant! Sincere thanks to Sylvia, Kathy and Petra for all your hard work and thanks for publicising it for us. You,ve done a fantastic job!!
Sandra UK

Wow Kathy, Petra, & Sylvia, what an awesome job. What a fan tastic job. Love it. So, we'll see what songs should Michael choosefrom the list hopefully. Now that you mentioned songs & from which albums, wow! You mean more to me reminds me of MS. Helen for some strange reason. a lot of work went into it you girls. :)
