52 Songs for 52 Weeks: Whiter Shade of Pale by Procul Harum

Let’s take it way back to the days of 35 cents a gallon gas.

Procul Harum is sort of dismissed as a one hit wonder – but these guys actually had a nice bluesy rock sound and if you see their greatest hits laying around in a bargain bin for $1.99, just buy it.

The sound is dreamy, the words are a bit psychedlic and this song makes us all look back.  It’s one of those tunes that forces us back in time – no matter how old we are.

It’s a great song (except for groovy clothes these guys are wearing in the video).
