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

Hi ladies, I have a feeling Michael sang LIAWT thanks to our list, first, because he mentioned it in the recent article/interview and wouldn't want to let us down and second, since he stopped singing it sometime between 2006 and 2009. My 2 cents. I guess we'll find out tonight, if he sings another one. Take care ladies. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Did you post what the winning songs were? If so I missed it, could you repost or tell me where to find it?
Many thanks!! :-)
Hi Cattet and if you go back to page 38 all the results are printed on there. They are further back too but I made corrections to them and reposted.

Hi Cattet, good to read you here! I've copied Sylvia's top 10 list, but I've put on the same line the songs that had the same number of votes. Here it is:
Top 10 List
- (24 votes) Completely
*(19 votes) Steel bars
- (18 votes) Missing You Now, When I'm Back On My Feet Again
- (16 votes) Soul Of My Soul
- (15 votes) A Love So Beautiful
- (12 votes) Once In A Lifetime
- ( 9 votes) I Promise You, Love Is A Wonderful Thing
- ( 8 votes) Gotta Keep Dreamin', How Am I Supposed To Live Without You, Lean On Me, Soul Provider
* Although "Steel Bars" came 2nd with 19 votes we are discounting this as Michael already has on his set list, therefore, 2nd place is given to those two songs with 18 votes.
So there you go! So far, we only know that Michael sang "Love is a wonderful thing" in this past week's Florida show, but we hope there's much more to come. The next concerts start up next month, so we'll have to wait a while. Well anyway, glad you dropped by Cattet, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
I have been known as a late blooming MB Fan this will be my 4th show seeing MB and the band . Now after getting dared I am throwing this out there for the 03-15 show at the Palace . Daring the band to do Now That I found You . We shall see if this post is seen and heard . It would also be cool
Hi Phill and what this thread was was one where we all voted on songs we would love to hear Michael singing on stage and when we had closed the voting and drawn up a Top 10 list that, along with the other details of the voting system, were sent to Michael by Gail, moderator of the website, and he acknowledged that he had received and would consider but no promises could be made and this is why at each concert that is coming up now we are wondering if he is adding any new songs to the set list as we are all dying to know if he will take real heed of what was voted on. We know he has sung "Love Is A Wonderful Thing" and also from videos uploaded to YouTube he has sung "Lean On Me" with Amanda Brown at one of the recent shows.
Have to let you know that Michael nor the band officially come on here and read anything so it cannot in anyway be guaranteed that your post would be seen.
