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

Hey Sylvia, I checked it out and your first post on here was on Dec 8 2010. Funny you mentioned the thread wasn’t taken further, because I have another link for you:
I was going through my list of old links and found it. I haven't skimmed through this one, but remember I did the compiling on it... I wanted to mention it before, but this present thread took off so fast that I forgot about it. Christopher seems like Florin and James: they post scarcely, but when they do, it counts! Glad you’ve enjoyed the last link and hope you enjoy this new/old one. Take care Sylvia. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
HI SYLVIE! THANKS FOR THE LINKS I HAVE SKIMMED THRU BOTH LINKS AND I HAD POSTED IN BOTH OF THEM MY LIST HAS CHANGED SOMEWHAT I HAVE TWO SONGS ON MY CURRENT LISTS THAT WERE POSTED ON MY PREVIOUS LISTS I LOVE READING ALL THE LISTED SONGS THIS IS JUST MY OPINION BUT I THINK STEEL BARS SHOULD NOT BE INCLUDED IN THE FINAL TOTAL OR INCLUDED WITH AN * MICHAEL SINGS THIS SONG IN JUST ABOUT EVERY CONCERT HE DOES HE SANG IT IN ALL THE CONCERTS I BEEN TO AND I HAVE BEEN TO QUITE A FEW
THANKS AGAIN SYLVIE FOR THE LINKS
Hi Gloria, you’re very welcome. :D Glad you enjoyed the links, I just spent a little while doing the same and it was wonderful! I have to say I’m pretty consistent too: my current list has 2 songs I’d listed before and the last 3 hadn’t been recorded when I first posted. As far as “Steel bars” go, I suggested to Sylvia that a separate “keepers” list might be a good idea: I’d vote for “Georgia” myself. Take good care Gloria. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Hi Gloria...you are correct for the 3 of us agree that Steel Bars is a "regularly" performed song so it will have a different placement on the final list :) Fans can vote for that song but it will have a different ranking due to its consistent presence on Michael's setlist.
Kathy and LAFD Bob
Hey Sylvie...as Michael would say...."who wants to go back in time?"....thanks for the links :) Now certainly the 3rd time is the charm and let's hope Michael agrees with ALL of us GREAT fans and he will kindly consider OUR list!! Thank you again fans for ALL of your SUPPORT and voting!!!
Kathy and LAFD Bob
Hey Kathy, in reply to your question: I do I do and for Michael, anytime! :D I think I'll revisit the last thread I posted today. Take care girl. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Count mine like hers because I love those songs too! Thanks!

Once In A Lifetime
Stand Up For Love
I Almost Believed You
When There Are No Words
Now That I Found You

Sylvia. Your wee Scottish friend.
Thank you so much Margaret and Mary Lyn for voting!! Margaret it is fun to see fans get as excited as we are here on MB's forum!! Let's start out small with a fan fav list and then move to a full blown concert!!! All us fans think alike :))))
Kathy and LAFD Bob
This is great! I finished reading everyone's answers, and it's so great to see so many posting here! Hope some of you stay on the site and chime in once and awhile. I am usually on here more, but am busy packing & moving. Will have more time soon! Anyway this is exciting, can't wait to hear the final results. I am working on my list, I have my top 4-they were easy. Now to my 5th song, not so easy. Will post in a day or two. Later................
Thanks for coming in Joy and glad you found thread and know exactly what you mean about trying to choose...I got to three okay and then next two were virtually impossible and ended throwing about twenty in the hat and drawing two out !!! lol
Love the picture and for Sylvie and Robin Joy has put in a pic of a cartoon character sitting at a desk with pieces of paper in front of him and writing on one but his eyeballs are sticking out as well as his tongue and there are a couple of pieces of paper floating at his back which have just been thrown away by him....totally frustrated as I think a lot of us have been over this MAJOR decision !!! LOL
Thanks again Joy and looking forward to seeing your list !!! :)
Sylvia Your wee Scottish friend.
Hi Sylvia and Joy, thanks so much for the description and the icon itself ladies, you made me smile when I needed it, God bless. :D Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
