A Whiter Shade of Pale
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this music video.
Lennox has perhaps made the worst cover of a fine 60s song that I have ever heard. What's more, the video actually has the audacity to be even worse than her pathetic mumble of a cover song. If there is one song and/or video you miss in your life, and I mean your entire life, let it be this one. Don't even bother with the preview, it'll basically just kill thirty seconds of your life, if not more because of her dreadful "music." Avoid this like the plague.
Exquisite Re-imagining of a Classic
By turns edgy and contemplative, Annie Lennox's version of A Whiter Shade of Pale backs away from the histrionics of the original but doesn't lose one bit of its dreamy contemplation.
If you aren't a fan of Annie Lennox, or the sort of laconic interpretation favored by groups like the Cowboy Junkies you may not appreciate this gem.
