A Whiter Shade Of Pale – Procol Harum’s Return

As it is, Procol Harum’s “A Whiter Shade Of Pale” is probably the most replayed and used in other media such as movies, than any other song of the 60’s., I became a true lover of the song once I read the lyrics and found how they matched themes of my life. Later, I came upon a wonderful remake of the song performed by the original members and along with an orchestra, I was and am amazed at its EVERYTHING!

Procol Harum‘s Return with their song A Whiter Shade Of Pale

And with no further introduction, I present to you, Procol Harum’s original band members performing with the Danish National Concert Orchestra and choir at Ledreborg Castle, Denmark in August 2006

Elton John – Tiny Dancer

  • as played twice at the Trump rally in JAX

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

Jesus freaks out in the street
Handing tickets out for God
Turning back she just laughs
The boulevard is not that bad

Piano man he makes his stand
In the auditorium
Looking on she sings the songs
The words she knows the tune she hums

But oh how it feels so real
Lying here with no one near
Only you and you can hear me
When I say softly slowly

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man

And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

But oh how it feels so real
Lying here with no one near
Only you and you can hear me
When I say softly slowly

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
You had a busy day today

Bruce - Live In New York City

Bruce Laid Out…Music

Bruce overdosing on the soul of music! Here he’s laid out on his monitor while performing RamRod LIve In New York City, Madison Square Garden, July of 2000 (I believe).

This video isn’t available on YouTube as every time it appears, it’s then taken down due to copyright infringement. The entire concert video can be purchased and is worth every penny; it’s my all-time favorite live music video. Here’s a Bruce’s link to purchase the DVD Video Set:

Bruce – Many More Reasons…

More reasons I put Bruce above all other musicians
(applies to the whole band)

While being In about the most difficult realm to maintain integrity, morals, ethics and values, I’ve never heard anything negative about Bruce Springsteen or The E. Street Band? Did you ever hear about him being a womanizer? Ever hear about him/them trashing hotels? How about any drugs or alcohol abuse? How about ANY of his songs condoning drugs, killing people, hating his mother, using woman, advocating foul behavior? Bruce is direct proof that you don’t need foul language or behavior to be of the top echelon in the Rock/Rock-N-Roll industry and if it isn’t needed in the Rock industry, it isn’t needed anywhere!
.
Forty years burnin’ down the road; in the toughest job to behave, with temptation knocking at every door from every direction, not one word legitimately spoken of derogatory nature! In this day and age of serious decay in our society’s morals, ethics and values, even by our U. S. Presidents, politicians in general, sports stars, etc., how can this exceptional, unbelievable feat be ignored by our press? And, from where do you think Bruce obtained, at least in part, his motivation and realization of the importance of maintaining these characteritics? Of course his mother, but how about his idol, Elvis Presley, who was bigger than life himself until these exact temptations took him over, put him in a trap and carried him to death? Yep, Bruce saw his own idol, Elvis Presley be torn, broken to pieces then laid to rest from most all of these temptations and hence Bruce, with strict vigor, swore not to walk the same path; AMEN, love that you’re here!
.
Then, the friendships; keeping a nine piece band together and as blood-brother level friends! Are you kidding me? Where are the writers today? Beyond this being a needed headline and story, it warrants such in every manner! This is the kind of noble behavior that should be popularized, not all the foul rubbish covering our papers and news today! I challenge every commercial writer to bring YOUR morals to the table, make this excellence the popular headlines, help our society instead of bowing to its ill desires, quit riding the train and start engineering it!
