The Golden Rock song of the day - 4/5/07

Today's song of the day is a classic. I'm sure many people have heard the organ hook at some point in their lives, and it's an addictive hook. First appeared on the 1967 album (note to self: track may be even better while on drugs), it's the title track to Procol Harum's album "A Whiter Shade of Pale." Name doesn't sound familiar? Just listen to it.

Why? I honestly don't know why I should explain why classic songs are songs of the day. You mean, aside from the nostalgic organ hook and great blend of blues and soul into its melody, I have to further explain why A Whiter Shade of Pale is awesome? If your answer is yes, then you should stop your daily diet of Avril Lavigne and Nickelback shit mix.

Here's one way to cover it.

And here's a way not to cover it.
