Procol Harum - "A whiter shade of pale"

There is SO much to say about this song (examples : it's the first Procol Harum song ever but it wasn't originally included on their first album ; the song was influenced by Bach's Suite Number 3 in D Major Air On The G String, as played by Jacques Loussier on a TV advertisement ; the idea for the title came when one of the band members overheard a girl at a party being described as having turned into "a whiter shade of pale" ; before the song was officially released, it was arranged to be played on the pirate Radio London because band members wanted to hear what it sounded like on the radio ; etc...) that I'll give a link to a very complete page : http://www.procolharum.com/awsop.htm
