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

Sylvia. Your wee Scottish friend.
Thanks everyone for your thanks and thanks too Sylvie for all your information and have to say as soon as you mentioned "Every Day Of My Life" I thought I've got that in a Collectibles double CD which has also got "Michael Bolotin" on it...but...where is it ?????? LOL The hunt was on because I could even picture the cover....found it down the back of my unit where I keep all Michael's CDs...don't tell him !!!!! LOL No excuse whatsoever for forgetting "All The Way" was on Vintage but on Gems, I've got four different copies and I just forgot completely about German one but thanks again Sylvie for all the added information and the corrections on the couple too...thanks !!! :) Have to say hope everyone is okay with the list remaining as it is...with its mistakes for, news flash, I ain't typing all that out again....LOL
Here is just hoping that Michael might consider putting "Completely" on that set list.....hope so and keeping fingers crossed !!! :)
Sylvia. Your wee Scottish friend.
I am more than comfortable with the list remaining as is :) All your many many hours of work are much appreciated Sylvia AND all the typing!!! Thanks Sylvie for the corrections also. Always room for everyone to improve :) Petra you were superb with all the photos as well and our counting and triple counting!! This little contest was loads of fun and 93 other fans thought so too!!! It was fun to see what songs Michael's fans are wanting to hear live!! And let's hope Michael agrees with us and considers and finds room for Completely in 2015!! WOOHOO!!!!
Kathy and LAFD Bob
Hi Sylvia and Kathy, no problem for the correction and no problem for the list remaining as is. "Completely" would be wonderful to hear, but I'm still holding out for WIBOMFA myself... :D Can't wait to hear Michael's reaction though... Thanks again ladies, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
You are welcome, Tiffany!!!
Great Job Sylvia ,Kathy and Petra. Interesting outcome. Can't wait to see what Michael thinks . It would be fab if he adds some of these top 10 songs to his set list.
3 of mine are there but 4 really as I wanted to put Soul Provider on my list of top 5 anyway. ONCE AGAIN WELL DONE FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK .
Best Wishes from Italy
Only a Woman Like You
He needs to perform this song live.
Hi Richard and WELCOME to the forum and glad to have you here !!! :)
Agree with you that "Only A Woman Like You" is a beautiful song and he should sing it but believe by there having been 132 songs chosen, that people want to hear Michael sing, we should possibly be grateful that we can, at least, listen to them on CD's or through YouTube videos for he certainly would have a hard job choosing which ones to put in his set list to ensure everyone was happy.
Hope you are enjoying looking through all we have on here and as I've said, great to have you join us Richard !!! :)
