A whiter Shade of pale.
Keith Reid Gary Brooker Matthew Fisher
Keith Reid, Gary Brooker.
A Whiter Shade Of Pale
The late Gary Brooker
Actually, now that I think about it, A Whiter Shade of Pale is based on a Bach concerto I believe.
1. Whiter Shade of Pale, written by Gary Brooker and Matthew Fisher
2. Conquistador, wriotten by Gary Brooker and Keith Reid
A Whiter Shade of Pale and Conquistador by Procol Harum. I amazed myself in knowing the lyrics but I’d have to look up the writer(s) so I’ll stick with what I actually knew. Happy New Year to all.
