A chance for the Dutch Truebies to get a taste of True Blood in Amsterdam. Gary Calamar, True Blood’s Music Supervisor, has been confirmed to speak at the Buma Music In Motion conference that will take place on May 16th at Pakhuis Willem De Zwijger in Amsterdam.
The title for True Blood Season 6, Episode 3 has been changed to “Abducted,” and although we have already speculated on the previous title, here’s our new choice for this episode based on the new title.

Synopysis: Bill looks for a solution to an impending catastrophe; Eric takes a hostage, while Sam tries to recover one. (Written by Mark Hudis; directed by Howard Deutch.) Playdate: June 30
Since the title of the episode is always a song title, below are possibilities for the song to end this episode. Below are some possibilities for this episode.
Episode 3 also has several options. True Blood has used “standards” from time to time as their song for the episode, and therefore we have two versions of the most popular song with this title in the first two spots, Linda Rondstadt’s version and the original by Better Everett. However, we tend to think that True Blood’s song for this episode will be the third song by Major Lazer; much more trendy for today’s music tastes. It will be interesting to see which one they choose.
Since we now know the title for True Blood Season 6, Episode 3 is “Rock Hard Times,” as is our practice, we like to speculate about what song will be chosen by True Blood’s Music Supervisor, Gary Calamar.
The song must be the Eels song, “Rock Hard Times.”

The Naked And Famous – The Sun – taken from the debut album “Passive Me, Agressive You
Sorry Boys – The Sun (official single) which will be released in 2013.
Soap&Skin – the Sun
Maroon 5′s song ‘The Sun’ from their debut album Songs About Jane.

The song just has to be the Beatles song, “Here Comes the Sun.”

Since we now know the title for the Season 6, Episode 1 is ’Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood’ As is our practice, we like to speculate about what song will be chosen by True Blood’s Creator and Executive Producer, Allan Ball and his Music Supervisor, Gary Calamar.
Gary has been getting artists to create new versions of songs recently, so it’s highly likely he may do so with this song. If he doesn’t do that, it has to be either the original done by the Animals back in the 1960′s or the newer version which was featured on the soundtrack of the 2003 film, “Kill Bill Vol.1.”
First, is the original version by the Animals
However, I’m tempted to think that this version from the “Kill Bill” soundtrack might be it. It would be rather ironic since when we last saw Bill Compton, he had sort of “been killed” by turning into something different, namely Billith.
And here’s the Nina Simone version, which I’ve been told is really the original. Thanks. Rina!
