The Special Song Request Thread (and why)

Postby Green Man III » Sun Jan 10, 2021 7:03 am

Don't know if anybody at Bloodstock or the bands read these threads but here's hoping.

Mr. Devin Townsend, it would mean so much to me if you would play Juular. The first time I saw the video for this song, was shortly after my father had his stoke sending him into a mental decline to this day. The video and the lyrics hit home super hard. Maybe I'm completely wrong about what it's about but for me, hearing this song at the next Bloodstock would be, for me, a tribute to my father.

Is Devin still doing the requests set? There was a vote for the setlist what feels like forever ago. Don't know if that's still the plan or not but if so I'd expect Juular to make the grade.

No idea if the requests set is going ahead, though Devin did do a special lockdown show that was specifically the Bloodstock setlist. It was:

Velvet Kevorkian (Strapping Young Lad song)
All Hail the New Flesh (Strapping Young Lad song)
By Your Command
Almost Again (Strapping Young Lad song)
Juular (Devin Townsend Project song)
March of the Poozers
Supercrush! (Devin Townsend Project song)
Hyperdrive
Stormbending (Devin Townsend Project song)
Deadhead (The Devin Townsend Band song)
Aftermath (Strapping Young Lad song)
Love? (Strapping Young Lad song)
Spirits Will Collide
Kingdom
Detox (Strapping Young Lad song)

I didn't mean this to be a Devin Townsend thread. LOL.


Dear Mr Mercyful Fate,

While I fully expect you to do loads of material off Melissa and Don't Break The Oath (front to back each of them would be great). But for one song, I ask that you do Time. This song will take me back to the early days of my relationship with my lovely wife. We were young and falling deeply in love, and all the while time was ticking away, and here we are more than twenty years later, and minutes and seconds are ticking away.



(and yes, yes, I know Mercyful Fate is King Diamond, Hank Shermann, and Michal Denner and some others, I'm just trying to be clever with my letter writing format).
