'The sincerest form of flattery'


A Whiter Shade of Pale

OK, A Whiter Shade of Pale should be God's gift to satirists. So have a look at the progress so far (don't feel obliged to send us your own!) ...

A Brighter Grade of SAIL

A Bloodless Shade of Pale

The Heavy Rock Version of AWSoP

Looking forward to Procol's 40th

Turned out Mary for a Sale

Spam in my E-mail

'We skipped the choir practice'

'The Fifty Shades of Grey'

Political cartoon printed during the AWSoP authorship lawsuit

Not exactly a parody, but a funny adaptation of the song on BBC Radio 4's long-running and hilarious 'antidote to panel-games', the nonsensical I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue ... mp3 here [pianist Colin Sell doesn't seem sure of the chords!]. If anyone can send us the corollary in which the words of My Old Man's a Dustman are sung to the same august melody, we'd be very grateful.

And there's also this snippet ...

"Say so long to the troupe's recent "Democratic Medley," which ignored Edwards but included this (now obsolete) bit, belted out to the tune of the Procol Harum classic: "You can always vote for Gephardt / He's a whiter shade of pale." Read it all here (thanks, Jonas)
