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.

MB used to sing Only A Woman Like You live. I saw him many times, he would dedicated to the ladies in the audience. It was around the time that album it was on was out, of the same name, that was over 10 years ago but he did sing it regularly in rotation then. I loved it!
It's interesting to see who wants what songs. Great job ladies, I had fun reading all the other folks' lists here!!!
Robin in MD :)
Hey Richard, Michael sang it in 2002 and it was wonderful, of course! He actually premiered it at the World Music Awards that year, so see if you can find that somewhere, good luck! Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
... and Germany, please!
Here are my five (if this is still going on):
1. I Wanna Hear You Say It
3. This River
4. Wait On Love
5. The Best

"Reply by Gail on
I wanted to let you know that I got a message from Michael today regarding the songs in the top 10. He apologizes for not responding before now but he has been busy filming the Detroit movie and other events. He said that they are considering some of these songs for sure but no promises right now. He said it was great to have your choices. Thanks to everyone! "

Darn! I wish I would have come here earlier! Oh, well. Perhaps I'll get lucky and at least one of the songs in my list will be performed this year. Fingers crossed! Thanks for the information! Take care!
Hi Joe and welcome to the forum. I do hope you at least get a concert your way this year, since new dates keep popping up. Sylvia left you a link to the 2015 tour review thread on your profile page, so keep an eye on it, because you're sure to find out if Michael adds anything from the list or any songs we don't usually hear. If you need more help finding things or navigating the site, let us know and we'll do our best to direct you. Take care Joe and happy New Year! Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Both Petra and Gail have given us a feast of an interview from Michael and one full of more "new" information than we have had been able to feed on for a while and here is link ..........
Whole interview is wonderful but definitely section that relates to this thread is mention of "fan-requested songs" and how wonderful to read that some may just find their way onto his set list....wonderful !!! :)
Here is that paragraph .........
"What can fans expect at your concert at Hard Rock Live?
I always want to deliver the greatest hits, because that's what the fans ask for, and it's the soundtrack that's kept us together over the years. But each show will have a few surprises as well, with special guests and new songs from recent albums. Recently, we've been receiving some fan-requested songs, which we're now starting to put back into the set list."
Savour and enjoy like a good steak....or....a veggie burger !!! lol
Sylvia. Your wee Scottish friend.
Might have absolutely nothing to do with our Top 10 list but have found out, through a friend of Robin MD's being at show that, Michael sang "Love Is A Wonderful Thing" last night in Florida and it was #7 on list....woohoo !!!! lol
