A Whiter Shade Of Pale (Cover)
I can’t quite believe that I’m posting this, or that I’ve even recorded it. But I’ve played it like this sat on the sofa in the living room for many years, and I needed something to check out how to record a live “one vocal and one guitar” song. You wouldn’t believe the hastle it was capturing this!!!
It’s the perennial paean to sex under the influence. (Although it’s only as I get older - and have fond memories of being in my 20s and going through this sort of thing - that I’ve learnt to appreciate that this is what the song’s really about).
Anyway, here we go, me, guitar, one take, warts and all: “We skipped the light fan-thing-ummy”
Music and Lyrics: Brooker/Reid (although, since 2009, it appears that Fisher is now officially credited as a co-writer for his organ part - sorry mate, I didn’t use your bit!)
