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

Picture was taken on 20th May, 2014 at Cliff's Pavilion, Southend-on-Sea, UK and please feel free to use if you wish to.

   my choice to Michael .....but needed I would at least quadruple


Oh that is a good one Marie, really like that......diky !!! :)

The Hunger - probably the best song ever written about passion - passion to create, passion to love.  Still get chills every time I hear it.  Then I go write.

Fool's Game

Steel Bars

I'll just put 3 which have been faves decade after decade, plus one great song I wish he would cover, but don't think he's ever done - Unchained Melody.  An incredibly beautiful song that always feels like Michael should have written it.


Thanks for voting Amie but have to say can't start including songs he hasn't recorded not when we are asking him to consider placing on his set list but do know what you mean about "Unchained Melody" though !! :)   To add, your three votes have been recorded.

Hi all, Interesting how some of the top ones he already sings regularly (Soul Provider, SILYBIL, Steel Bars)and some are ones he's not.  Love all the lists everyone!!!! Fun reading them all..By the time this ends it should be really interesting what the top 10 are. LOL

Have a great day!

Several of us agree Robin. I think some fans got so excited and read over the rules too quickly. I love everyone's passion but if a song does not fit the rules in the directions for choosing songs....I don't believe it can remain on the list to be calculated at the end. I know all the time that went into creating the rules and I think we all agree that songs that fit the rules in the directions will remain in the contest :) All fans please reread the rules and directions before posting your list...thanks :)

Thanks for coming in here Kathy and definitely, even if it proves at end of voting that some of the songs Michael sings regularly, have come out in Top 10 they would have to be highlighted that they couldn't be included in final list for Michael to consider.  Here is hoping by 1st December we have ten virtually unknowns well out in front so that drawing up that list, between us, is no problem.  As you say it is great to see everyone coming in with songs and to everyone who has come in so far, thanks a million for doing so !!! :)

Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend


I agree with you both Kathy R. and Sylvia. It should be songs he's not sung before to make it fun to send a list to him to maybe hear him sing something different next year (crossing fingers). :)  

I enjoy seeing all the lists. Fun stuff!!!!!
