It is often used in a humorous vein. I had no idea that this beautiful song was about the Titanic, and of all the lyrics, the only one I understood was the "fandango" line, the only one you didn't!
Flag ljbtal on August 13, I'm sorry, but no. Procol Harum sang this live inand the video is available on YouTube. He clearly says "she said there is no reason" and "Vestal. Although I was at first tempted to believe your theory about the Titanic, listening to the song I clearly hear him say "miller", "she", "vestal".
The "she" is the same person Ibiza Swans (Lounge Mix) - Various - Pure White Beirut Two "her", I think.
I have no absolute theory about the meaning of the song but it might actually be about someone sinking, but in some kind of drug trip or alcohol party Flag Kamiku on December 17, DNungester Man I think you know a lot of things about ! What are you? General Comment First off, most Procol Harum lyrics have something to do with the sea.
Thus A Whiter Shade Of Pale - Procol Harum - The Best Of Procol Harum get mermaids and such. And a whole lot of death. Personally, Green Olives - Life Is A Bitch think this song is about the sinking of the Titanic. The whiter shade of pale is what one looks like after drowning. General Comment Alright, here is my take on this song.
The Miller's Tale By Chaucer. It's the story told by a Miller A Whiter Shade Of Pale - Procol Harum - The Best Of Procol Harum fun of carpenters.
Keep in mind he is VERY drunk when he tells his tale. The carpenter has a young wife and has two young students renting a room with him. They both adore his wife. One day one of the students seduces the wife. They have sex.
Longing for more than a quickie the student and the wife who apparently enjoys the company of the student decide to trick the carpenter so that they can have more sex. They create a lie. They tell him that another biblical flood is coming and get him to build tubs on the roof of the building for them to ride out the storm in. The student sneaks down with the wife.
They have sex in the carpenter's bed. Now for the punch line if you will of the story. Thinking the carpenter is away the other student tries to seduce her by singing again. The wife, sticks her ass out the window, which the student kisses.
When he realizes this he gets mad and goes to a blacksmith and grabs a hot piece of metal. He returns, the student decides to be the next one to stick his ass out the window. The second student burns his ass with the hot metal, which causes the student to scream. The carpenter hears this and falls out of the tub off the roof and onto the ground, and breaks his arm.
That's how the story ends. It's all written by Chaucer, so I am not intending to steal his story. SO, back to the song, now that I bored everyone. The song is basically talking about making a fool of yourself in front of someone you want to have sex with or already are which could lead to a break up The beginning part of the song is describing how they are dancing, drinking and having a good time.
The second part is after he has made a fool of him self. And she said " there is no reason, the truth is plain to see" So obviously she was embarrassed by his drunkeness if you say they were together then this causes them to break up, but I personally think they weren't together at the start of the party. Then later when he is alone he's playing with his cards, and hoping that the lady wasn't a nun.
This might be the source of the confusion and embarrassment. IE the guy is drunk and hits on a nun. So there is my take. He should have realized she was a nun, but he was too drunk to realize. Moral of the story. DON'T get drunk and hit on nuns. BTW as an aside Gary Booker heard someone at a party say. General Comment If I had to guess he was playing a bar while tripping. They gave it all they had to give but the crowd called out for more. The room was humming harder. Bud that's describes acid to a T.
And the rest is where your head A Whiter Shade Of Pale - Procol Harum - The Best Of Procol Harum on psychedelics. Seemingly profound stuff that make's infinite sense until the next day. It still sounds pretty so why not leave it. It does sound like acid, and playing a gig on it. I don't agree that it doesn't make sense, though. The first reply up above seems to have presented a fairly cogent interpretation.
Who knows? Yes, yes, acidy indeed. Flag suzycreamchez on July 11, Acid, tripping I don't think plays into it Flag gary on December 11, I knew a few roadies back then who worked with some of the top groups.
