A Whiter Shade Of Pale &
Running Mustang America
A Whiter Shade Of Pale is the 1967
debut song of Procol Harum.
Looking back at this song half a century
later we can see that it was one of the
few famous songs over this period that
had a sense of “Globality”.
What is meant by this Globality is
its potential to show the listener the
grand scope of the whole world, without
limiting itself to a single region or country.
Originating from the west, it is regarded
as a quiet hit that continues to be popular in
South America, Japan, and in other Asian
countries where English is spoken
(though more often the melody rather than
Music and song are the common languages
of the world, but I think that a potential for
Globality such as that of A Whiter Shade of
Pale, will have an extremely large role to play
in the formation of global consensus in future.
Next, this great masterpiece was originated
in the West. So it is a song that the West
should be proud of. And I created a movie
tying with Mustang , one of America’s most
popular sports cars. This movie was
created as a draft for advertisement, but
it was not created by formally signing
a contract with Ford. It is by my own personal
will. I would like to realize “American Dream”
with American people.
