Michael's Favourites


In 1999 a radio station asked celebrities for their favourite songs. At that time Michael listed the following ten (in no particular order)!

  1. Ricky Martin - Livin' la vida loca
    One of Cathy's favourites then
  2. Tom Jones - Delilah
  3. Bette Midler - Stay with me lonely
    Most amazing live performance
  4. Abba - The winner takes it all
    Chucked by girl-friend, he thought they'd sing it only for him!
  5. Carly Simon - Nobody does it better
    Best Bond-movie - "The spy who loved me"
  6. Les Misérables - One day more
    First big break, includes good and bad memories
  7. John Farnham - You're the voice
    Best Rock vocal performance on a recording!
  8. Dusty Springfield - Son of a Preacher man
    He just loves her voice
  9. Garth Brooks - If tomorrow never comes
    Cathy and Michael's song, whilst he was performing on Broadway in 1990
  10. Barbra Streisand - The way we were
    The first piece of music he ever bought!
