Whiter Shade of Pale

This morning, for lack of anything better to do, I watched The Boat That Rocked for the fourth (fifth?) time. During the part where the ship was starting to sink, I realized that the song playing was “Whiter Shade of Pale” by Procol Harum*. Funny how I just noticed it now.

And so it was that later
as a mirror told its tale
that her face at first just ghostly
turned a whiter shade of pale

Didn’t know this song dates all the way back to 1967. *And that Procol Harum is Latin for “far away from these things.” Wow.
