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

First of all, I want to say THANK YOU to Sylvia-- I REALLY appreciate your emails that let us know when there is something special like this going on!  So, my top 5 "rare" Michael Bolton songs are:






But it's hard to stop at 5, so my "Honorable Mentions" are Next Lifetime, I Surrender, The Girl From Ipanema, and Go The Distance.  I'm not sure if any of my top 5 have been sung regularly at his concerts recently, but I don't think so.  But just in care, if there are any that have, and therefore don't "qualify", then please feel free to replace the non-qualifiers from my "honorable mention" list, starting with Next Lifetime, if that's allowed.

This was heart-warming to do!  Thanks for coming up with such a fun idea!


Hi Mer and thank so much for coming in with your votes and have to say "The Prayer" is one that was definitely on his set list at concerts I attended in May and believe that is one he does sing quite a bit although he did the duet with Kelly Levesque who has now left the band so whether it would still be performed by Amanda Brown or by the girl who has replaced Kelly, don't know but I do hope you don't mind if I take "Next Lifetime" from your "Honorable Mentions" (love that title) and replace "The Prayer" with it.  Know too he does sing "Lean On Me" but that is not an always so will leave that one as is. 

Have to advise your votes have been registered, supplementing "The Prayer" with "Next Lifetime" and thanks once again for popping in and it is lovely to hear from you !!! :)   Take care Mer !!! :)

Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.


Thank You Sylvia!  I'm very happy to have "Next Lifetime" submitted instead of "The Prayer".  It was one I almost left in my original top 5 anyway, so works out well!  I didn't make it to any of his northwest or California concerts last year, so wasn't sure what he was singing lately.

Can't wait to see the final results!


Thanks Mer for your votes and I also like you including you honorable mentions :)

Kathy and LAFD Bob

We get up to and including „Mer" the following:

Hi Lee and yes we know Michael will be in Australia in May but Gail, moderator of the website, can't officially post any of the details yet as all contracts not quite complete and believe Michael's Tour Management want to announce ALL the dates and venues at the one time....shouldn't be long now till Gail gets the okay !! :) Here is link to thread where Gail will place the announcement so start following and you will get notified as soon as something is posted   All dates on Michael's Tour Schedule are also placed in the "Tour" section on the main page. Thanks for mentioning Lee and I do hope you can get to a concert okay !!! :)
