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

Bravo Sylvia, Petra and Kathy! :-)

love Silvy from CH

Great job Sylvia, Kathy, and Petra. Thank you all very much for this wonderful project. I believe Michael will surprise us. Thanks again ladies, and to everyone for making it a success. Much love.


Awesome!! Can't wait to hear Completely in Feb and March...:) :)  This was fun! Thanks ladies!


Crossing fingers for the same song Lynn in March/April!!!!!!!:):)

Thanks for doing ladies.  

Robin in MD catching up!! LOL

Have decided to draw up a correct list following information and corrections Sylvie has very kindly posted on here of the 132 songs chosen and the final Top 10 section so that if anyone wants to copy, for their own information on where to access songs, they can.   I did think about changing original notice but believe it could be rather tricky and time consuming especially in trying to get it to fall in exactly the right position so rather than risking a head ache decided to add this and hope it is acceptable to everyone.  Can I say I have left some previous information about where some songs originated, i.e. from soundtracks etc. because if you want to hear them they are available on YouTube.

A total of 132 songs were voted on.

Only A Woman Like You (12 Contains 13)

One World One Love (11 Contains 12 on each version)

The One Thing (10 Contains 11)

Earliest song voted on: : "You Mean More To Me" : originally on Every Day Of My Life 1976 and can also be found on Michael Bolotin The Early Years 1990.

Additional information:

I should also like to add that Gail has let us know that she has passed on relevant information about our request and our Top 10 and here is hoping Michael will take it into consideration for 2015 so please, to all those attending concerts in 2015, if you hear one of the songs do come in and let us know......please !!!! :)

Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend


Hey Sylvia, thanks for the update. Yes, we'll definitely report on whether Michael has sung any of our choices, after we recover from the shock! :D I do want to keep a positive attitude, so let's just hope for the best. At least, we all had fun taking part. Take care Sylvia. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D

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!  

Thanks so much Gail.  Michael is so sweet.  Crossing fingers to hear Completely at some point.  Thanks for sending the song list to him for us.  This is exciting!!!

Robin in MD :)

Hi Gail, thanks for the update, about the list and what Michael has been up to.  I'm personally going to keep my expectations low, but I hope to be surprised! :D Take care Gail and thanks again very much. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D

There you go Sylvie. Keeping expectations low & be totally surprised. Thank you Gail for updates. I remember when Michael did completely in 94 & A love so beautiful in 96, I do believe. Wow! Love both songs. I want to come out here & wish everyone a Merry & blessed Christmas & those celebrating Chanakah, Have a good one.
