  Whiter Shade of Pale
by Procol Harum

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

  I remember it. Sounds too much like Skynard to me.

  This is one of my favourite songs.
Though most people today know it from a commercial.

Definitely one of the most hauntingly beautiful melodies ever.

It was a slow day in the office and we had the oldies station playing.
This song came on and it kind of took me back. I thought it would be interesting to post it here, at least more interesting than some of the crap on that other inane thread.

That's pretty cool.
