Procol Harum
A Whiter Shade Of Pale 
Μουσική - Στίχοι: Gary Brooker-Keith Reid-Matthew Fisher 
--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------
We skipped the light fandango
Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
I was feeling kinda seasick
But the crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
As the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
The waiter brought a tray

And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale

She said, 'There is no reason
And the truth is plain to see.'
But I wandered through my playing cards
And would not let her be
One of sixteen vestal virgins
Who were leaving for the coast
And although my eyes were open
They might have just as well've been closed

And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale

And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale

"A Whiter Shade Of Pale" was originally released as a single in May 1967, and then (in September) on Procol Harum's eponymous debut studio album. The album was released following their breakthrough and immensely popular single "A Whiter Shade of Pale". The track doesn't appear on the original album but was included in the US issue of the album.

I thought about uploading something special for my 400th(!!!) video.....finishing one of the Floyd, Genesis or Yes epics that I'm always chipping away at, or one of the more unusual things I've been working on, but in the end I decided to finally do something for "A Whiter Shade Of Pale"....forever one of my Top 10 all-time favorite songs.

The video is nothing too fancy (this song needs minimal visual effects!), just performance clips (taken from two different old tv performances) cleaned up, lit up and colored with a background effect.

I thought about which version of the song I would use for the video; the extended version, because of course more "A Whiter Shade..." = even better! ;-)...the original single (mono? stereo?)...but decided to use my current favorite version for this video (until recently unreleased BBC "Easybeat" session, June 1967...taken from Cherry Red's 2015 Expanded/Remaster). I may do another edit for the more well known single version soon, cause I wanna try and find "her face at first just ghostly"!... but also maybe I'll do the long one with some different photos/effects to make the long version video something interesting?

I hope you enjoy the effort and thanks to my old friends who have supported me for these past years....and new ones who stumble across my stuff and stick around!

"A Whiter Shade of Pale" is the debut single by the English rock band Procol Harum, released 12 May 1967. The record reached number one in the UK Singles Chart on 8 June 1967, and stayed there for six weeks. Without much promotion, it reached No. 5 on the US charts. One of the counterculture anthems of the 1967 Summer of Love, it is one of fewer than 30 singles to have sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

With its Bach-derived instrumental melody, soulful vocals, and unusual lyrics, written by the song's co-authors Gary Brooker, Keith Reid, and organist Matthew Fisher, "A Whiter Shade of Pale" reached No. 1 in several countries when released in 1967. In the years since, it has become an enduring classic. As of 2009, it was the most played song in the last 75 years in public places in the United Kingdom, and the UK performing rights group Phonographic Performance Limited in 2004 recognized it as the most-played record by British broadcasting of the past 70 years.Also in 2004, Rolling Stone placed "A Whiter Shade of Pale" No. 57 on its list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

In 1977, the song was named joint winner (along with Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody") of the Best British Pop Single 1952–1977 at the Brit Awards. In 1998 the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. More than 1000 recorded cover versions by other artists are known. The song has been included in many music compilations over the decades and has also been used in the soundtracks of numerous films, including The Big Chill, Purple Haze, Breaking the Waves, The Boat That Rocked, Oblivion, and in Martin Scorsese's segment of New York Stories. Cover versions of the song have also been featured in many films, for example by King Curtis in Withnail and I and by Annie Lennox in The Net.
The original writing credits were for Brooker and Reid only. On 30 July 2009, Matthew Fisher won co-writing credit for adding the organ parts to the original music in a unanimous ruling from the Law Lords.

BEYOND THESE THINGS Procol Harum A Whiter Shade of Pale #1 hit from 1967 and the #3 KSHE Classic of all-time as voted by the KSHE listeners in 2013. A tribute to one of rock's most underrated bands and a song that transcends time and spans the generation gap. Our musical memories are our milestones and provide the soundtrack to our lives. Procol Harum has been a part of many of those lives, no matter how enigmatic the band has remained all through the years, then and now. They deserve to be in the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame, if they're finally going to let KISS in it would be a crime to keep these guys out. Most casual listeners can't even spell Procol Harum nor tell you what it means and very few could name another song by the group, or one of their records, or even one of the members of the band. Still their songs, like A Whiter Shade of Pale, Simple Sister and Conquistador strike a chord like no other and resonate within the souls of rock 'n' roll fans around the world. They move people and despite their lack of commercial success any true musician can never hope for more than that. They are real rock 'n' roll originals and pioneers of progressive rock. Let em in!. .

She said, 'I'm home on shore leave,'
though in truth we were at sea
so I took her by the looking glass
and forced her to agree
saying, 'You must be the mermaid
who took Neptune for a ride.'
But she smiled at me so sadly
that my anger straightway died

She said, 'There is no reason
and the truth is plain to see.'
But I wandered through my playing cards
and would not let her be
