Hey, I was wondering what everyones first experience was of enjoying Michael's music? the first time you realised you were a fan?
I must admit, my first interaction was when I watched the movie Snow Dogs a couple of years ago and heard Time, Love and Tenderness at the end, I thought it was fantastic and my love has just grown from there!
Sorry if this has already been discussed before, but I'm interested to hear your stories!
Yes I have both the " The essential Michael Bolton” and The Best of Michael Bolton” on DVD. Like you are saying I am still missing a few of Michael's albums and dvd's to complete the collection. I will be hunting for it on Ebay, bidorduy and other sites.

To me Michael's music is healing music, he seems to know what we women think and how we feel! Time, Love & Tenderness is another one of my favs. Oh heck who am I kidding I love all of his Music:)!

Dear Meggy and Mary
That is so true what you say there Michael's music just speaks to a person deep in side. Could be because of his star sign that he is so in touch with imotions that he can write such beautiful song that can make a women (and man) feel so much better . My favourite is "Only a woman like you" because it just tell a person alot about a woman and what she can do (even to a man).

My name is Erika, I was born in Italy but grew up between Boston and Dublin in Ireland.
Michael Bolton I discovered thanks to my Aunt Lynette who has always lived in New Haven, as we all know the birthplace of Michael.
She loves Michael and has always collected his records and CDs.
I was just a kid when I did listen to the voice of Michael Bolotin, who sang with the Blackjack. My first song was "My World is empty without you." I fell in love immediately and then growing up, I followed his career. In 1996 I was with my aunt at Pavarotti and friends where I was excited to hear our Michael singing "Nessun dorma and Vesti la Giubba."
With all the respect that other artists deserve, but Michael was great and best of all.
Thanks for letting me tell my story.
Take care of yourself.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Erika and what a wonderful event to have witnessed, "Pavarotti and Friends" for it is great just looking at the videos from that time but to have actually been there and seen is a pretty wonderful memory to have !!! :)
Thanks again Erika !! :)
Sylvia. Your wee Scottish friend.
Thanks Sylvia, it was fantastic.
You have no idea how much I cried with emotion.
If I think I still cry now.

THANKS AGAIN FOR SHARING AND WELCOME TO THE FORUM!
Hi Gloria, I just wanted to say break a leg on getting to hear HAISTLWY at your next concert! Are you going to one of the upcoming ones on the East Coast? I hope so. My fave song will always be WIBOMFA though I'll never expect to hear it, but I really love "Georgia" and have only heard it twice out of my 7 concerts so I think I know how you feel. As I've said: break a leg! Take care sweetie. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
HI SYLVIE! OK I AM STUMPED WHAT SONG IS WIBOMFA? I AM NOT SURE IF I AM GOING TO ANY OF THE UPCOMING EAST COAST CONCERTS I STILL HAVE FINGERS CROSSED FOR NYC I AM CONSIDERING WESTBURY BUT IT WILL BE DIFFICULT I WILL LET YOU KNOW IT I DO I HAVE BEEN TO 5 CONCERTS AND NEVER HEARD "GEORGIA" EITHER
Hi again Gloria, WIBOMFA is "When I'm back on my feet again" and I wouldn't be a pretty sight if Michael sang it at a concert I attended. Oh I do hope you can make one concert and take advantage while he's in your area. Michael apparently does "Georgia" often as an encore. I suppose it depends on the audience and how he's feeling. Thanks for your response sweetie, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
Hello Gloria, Have you ever heard "Gloria" by Laura Brannigan?
It 'amazing how some of you since you'll be gourmet in the field of music. Do you like our Michael. What could be better?
You are a fan of NY. Unfortunately I can not always follow it but I love baseball.
Thank you. You hug.
Ps: I also translated into Italian.
Ciao Gloria, Hai mai ascoltato "Gloria" di Laura Brannigan?
E' favolosa come di certo sarai tu visto che sei buongustaia in campo di musica. Ti piace il nostro Michael. Cosa c'è di meglio?
Si sono una fans dei NY. Purtroppo non riesco sempre a seguirlo ma amo molto il baseball.
Grazie. Tu abbraccio forte.
