What is the song whiter shade of pale about?

2 Answers

“A Whiter Shade Of Pale” is a snapshot of a drunken sexual escapade gone awry. Yet the song defies a specific interpretation, instead conjuring various shades of melancholy which are embellished by the mournful music and Brooker’s pained delivery.

According to Keith Reid, Procol Harem's chief lyricist, "Whiter Shade of Pale" is a girl-leaves-boy story that he meant to create a certain mood, which is a melancholy one.
