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

Well, this is something I always thought we should do, but on a grander scale. Come on Michael, what about, after all these years, a Fan's Tour?
But if I can't have that, then this is my five:

Once in a Lifetime
Stand Up For Love
I Almost Believed You
WhenThere Are No Words
Now That I Found You

Yes, for me it's the power ballads, every time.
Love to everyone
Margaret in Kent

Lovely to see you here Margaret and hope all is well with you !!! :)  Thanks for your votes and they are registered.    You are going back in time with IABY and you nearly caught me because I couldn't remember if that was Bolotin or Bolton...LOL  Thanks again Margaret !!! :)

Hi Sylvia

I know, I don't often post, but I am almost always lurking in the background! Wouldn't it be wonderful if the whole set was songs we had chosen? Like for everyone else, just picking out five was a real challenge, but I chose those that really moved me the very first time I heard them. They've never lost their impact, and continue to resonate through the years.
I once "created" a story for a video for Once in a Lifetime - should we start a new thread where we can let our imaginations run riot, for our favourite song?
Margaret in Kent

Hi Margaret and went and had a look for these links Sylvie had put in another thread and maybe you could let your imagination run riot in one of

Michael Bolton’s most inspirational song

the most splendid song you’ve ever listened to

Songs with special meanings for/ to you

......and sorry folks, for know I'm being right off topic with my post, I apologise !!!!! :)  Let's get back to voting !!!

Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.



Hey Sylvia, speaking of posting links to other threads, look at what I found:

I skimmed through it quickly to check if anything had changed... You be the judge. :D Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D


Oh WOW Sylvie what a great find and super looking through it and notice "Completely" mentioned and it is still out in front with us !!! :)   I didn't and don't go that far back as I joined October/November 2010, can't remember exactly when I got my laptop but around that time but sure would have loved to have been involved in that thread and a pity it wasn't taken further at that time but still, at least, doing something now to take it further...LOL   Don't know quite where Christopher has gone as was friends with him on FB but don't see anything from him now.....will have to check out his page !!!

Thanks again for find Sylvie and hope others enjoy having a look at the "old" thread !!! :)

Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.
