She said there is no reason, but the truth is plain to see.

I had great music when I was a very young kid. I think I was singing this in the car as a kindergarten age kid.

I’ve been thinking this for over a week. I’m relieved there are others warped as I.

When I was learning the keyboard, I used to try to play the organ part.

The bass line is inspired by a piece by Johann Sebastian Bach...with the rather naughty title of “Air on a G-String”.

But I think it’s a bout a violin! LOL!

There are a few songs from that era that simply stand as unique jewels. This one of them.

The single was released on 12 May 1967

If my math is correct it will be 47 years old in 4 days

Also this song is RACIST!!!!!

face at first just ghostly.
turned a whiter shade of pale.

Another good one. I used to try to play that one on the guitar. I never was any good myself, but I aspired to be. :-) Back then I could play them on the radio, and now I play them on VLC.

I love the opening when they are running towards us in their belly bottom pants. They all look so slender and handsome in that romantic way of that time.

An honest mistake by Hilary. She thought they wanted to ban Procol Harum.

For those who may like solo acoustic guitar. . .I think this version is worthy of a listen.
