Dream setlist UNofficial song poll

Post by StratoTimo » Tue Jul 03, 2007 3:13 pm

To next world tour. What songs would you like to hear?
Let's say that in every gig Stratovarius plays about 18 songs so I think that We all can help the band in setlist discussion...
I know that next tour is next year but now we have time for this :wink:
My Setlist would be something like this:

* Rebel
* Cold Winter Nights
* I Walk To My Own Song
* Twilight Symphony
* Phoenix
* Legions
* Abyss Of Your Eyes
* sensitive ballad called jens johansson goes into the womans sauna and has the biggest hairiest balls there
* The Curtains Are Falling
* Deep Unknown
* Higher We Go
* Forever Is Today
* King Of Nothing
* It's a Mystery
* Paradise
* I'm Still Alive
* Hunting High And Low
* S.O.S

So what would you say to this system what I just wrote :roll:

It would be a mess pretty soon, if everyone said their opinions all at once.
There is a poll before the previous world tour too somewhere lost in these pages.

My idea would be...
Since there are about 16 songs;

A. At least 5 songs should be from the new album (If we're talking about promoting the new album :wink: )
B. One or two songs at most from the 3 first albums, for all those retro lovers...
C. That leaves 9-10 songs to choose from the most known era.
One should be ...Black Diamond obviously, together with another song from Visions, there should be 2 Episode songs too, and the rest... a song from each of the albums left. Some will be left outside this way, but we can't have it all...

It's not quite specific, but this idea looks nice to begin with IMO. Anyone else? :)

* Hands of Time
* 4th Reich
* Hold on to your dream
* Distant Skies
* Lord of the wasteland
* Season of Change
* Tomorrow
* Forever Free
* Sensitive ballad called "Jens Johansson goes into the woman's sauna and has the biggest hairiest balls there"
* No turning Back
* 4000 Rainy Nights
* Anthem of the world
* Millenium
* A Million Lightyears Away
* It's a mystery
* Find your own voice
* I walk to my own song
* Dreamweaver

Well...I tried to think about it, but there are too many songs I'd like to hear :?
So if there would be more than half of the songs I wrote, I'd be happy :D :D :D

* Against The Wind
* We Hold The Key
* Hunting High And Low
* I'm Still Alive
* I Walk To My Own Song
* Will The Sun Rise?
* Madness Strikes At Midnight
* Destiny
* Hold On To Your Dream
* Infinity
* Cold Winter Nights
* S.O.S.
* Sensitive ballad called "Jens Johansson goes into the woman's sauna and has the biggest hairiest balls there"
* Coming Home
* 4000 Rainy Nights
* Paradise
* Forever Free
* Will My Soul Ever Rest In Peace?

OK, based on your post, stratobabius, which is a good method of choosing, IMO! :)

*Future Shock
*Lead Us Into the Light
*Hold on to Your Dream
*Tears of Ice
*Against the Wind
*Forever
*Season of Change
*Visions-???
*Black Diamond
*Kiss of Judas
*4000 Rainy Nights
*Destiny-???
*Infinity-???
*Phoenix
*Mother Gaia
*Falling into Fantasy
*Will My Soul Ever Rest in Peace
*Elements
*SOAV
*A&O
*The Land of Ice&Snow
*Plus, about 2-3 from RR

I know I posted in more than I should have, but thats just my biased opinion, I guess. And the ??? means that time limitation means only 1 or 2 Epic long songs are done.
I guess if my picks are done the guys would be very tired&TK would have a bad case of larygnitis. :D

Renewing the setlist at least a bit or even more makes the gig experiences more interesting for sure, so in my opinion your idea is very good, ST.

It´s true everyone has his/her own opinions but I guess ultimately the favourite setlist may contain many same songs. So, let´s try it here again. :)

Agree that about 4-5 songs would be from the forthcoming RR (Rolls Royce :D ) album. Also the most popular hits & good opening and ending songs should stay (HUNTING HIGH AND LOW, BLACK DIAMOND). So, there´s about 9-10 songs left to choose in my list.

I write many alternatives so the coming list could look more longer.

First some retro ones for ppl who would like to hear very old songs from the first albums. No matter if TK could sing those too, though it would be nice to hear TT singing a song or a couple too.
Maybe 2-3 songs from that period:
- HOLD ON TO YOUR DREAM worked well in Tuska so it could be one more obvious choice but some others from Dreamspace could be OK too...
- Songs from Twilight Time like BREAK THE ICE, OUT OF THE SHADOWS or THE HANDS OF TIME

Then the epic one: I would rather hear my favourite INFINITY live yet in one day but as it contains so much orchestration parts it´s more likely they won´t play it anymore. So, then VISIONS, it was awesome in Tuska!
- WE HOLD THE KEY could be a considerable one for the epic one too. It´s a beautiful, touching song and has both slower and faster parts.

For the fast shorter songs a couple ones:

- TOMORROW (some change instead of SoL, also from Episode)
- DISTANT SKIES, S.O.S. or IT´S A MYSTERY or the catchy EAGLEHEART
- Maybe FIGHT!!! too, depending if the band would like to play songs from the s/t album, which I though doubt after reading some interviews... But that song works live very well!

The slower epic or longer one:
Like now TWILIGHT SYMPHONY, but for a change one of my favs ETERNITY would rock a lot! MOTHER GAIA could replace TS well too, as it contains the guitar part in the end too.

Then the other about 4-5 songs:

Certainly A MILLION LIGHT YEARS AWAY and THE ABYSS OF YOUR EYES which have been played this year and last year in some gigs. COLD WINTER NIGHTS, PHOENIX or very rare FALLING INTO FANTASY could fit too...
For the slower one or the ballad the present WILL MY SOUL REST IN PEACE? fits nearly the best, but also 4000 RAINY NIGHTS or the rarer one WHEN THE NIGHT MEETS THE DAY would be optional for my taste being the slower song.

And also, if the band would like to get the audience sing-a-long a ballad, then the familiar and safe FOREVER as another beautiful one CELESTIAL DREAM is the outro. :)

EDIT: OK, one suggestion of those songs mentioned above for the poll Jens made.

* Hunting High and Low
* Hold on to Your Dream
* Out of the Shadows
* Visions
* sensitive ballad called jens johansson goes into the womans sauna and has the biggest hairiest balls there
* Tomorrow
* Distant Skies
* It´s A Mystery
* Twilight Symphony
* Eternity
* A Million Light Years Away
* The Abyss of Your Eyes
* Will My Soul Ever Rest in Peace?
* 4000 Rainy Nights
* We Hold the Key
* Eagleheart
* Black Diamond
* Infinity # as bonus, read the reasons above

I have to say that we could put our favourite setlist here and about January or February I'll make that Setlist at those 16 songs what get "votes" to get in to setlist, then setlist is about that what we all want to hear. :wink:
If you know what I mean :roll:
I hope you does 8)

Back to madness is a song I like too, but I don't think many would want to hear it live...

EDIT: I moved them to my first post...

I didn't add HHAL or BD, since they'll surely be in. :)

It's the same tabulation mechanism as the last song poll. The results are here: http://www.stratovarius.com/forum/songpoll-07.pl

The old thread should get you started on how to format the posts to make them count: http://www.stratovarius.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6214

At the moment none of the posts are formatted that way so if you want them to count in the tabulator you have to edit them. The basic idea is to put your songs on a new line with a * character in front. Like this:

* black diamond
* Sensitive ballad called "Jens Johansson goes into the woman's sauna and has the biggest hairiest balls there"
* 45 minute keybeard solo

NB, the list looks funny until there are some more votes .................. I think that's why anyway

Thank you very much. So you now see that I editet my "Setlist"
But if we want to setlist those upcoming songs, how we write it to here?
What is name for it? It would be nice that everybody use that same "name" for it 8)
I didn't expect that you answer to here. So it's great honour to me that you came here. 8) :) :D

people, the poll results are generated with a machine, so please remember to write a "* " in front of each song of your choice.
Besides, try to write the complete name of the song, and the correct one (for ex, not "comming home" but "coming home"). thanks 8)

The system counts your first post to this topic. So, you need to edit your first post and then add the * fitted setlist.
