    When I think that almost everyone only know Procol Harum with "Whiter shade of pale" ....GRAND HOTEL : one of the 70 's pinnacles

    If ever yer reading a book about punk rock or 70's rock, and ye come across the word "bombastic"...and ye scratched yer head and weren't sure what it meant... Just refer back to this song; they meant like this...

    A most excellent story about this track and Douglas Adams. Makes me love this tune all that much more. Makes me want to dance around a great ballroom with Gary Brooker :)

    "Now they had one very very particular effect on my life. It was a song they did, which I expect some of you here will know, called Grand Hotel. Whenever I'm writing I tend to have music on in the background, and on this particular occasion I had Grand Hotel on the record player. This song always used to interest me because while Keith Reid's lyrics were all about this sort of beautiful hotel - the silver, the chandeliers, all those kind of things, but then suddenly in the middle of the song there was this huge orchestral climax that came out of nowhere and didn't seem to be about anything. I kept wondering what was this huge thing happening in the background? And I eventually thought ... it sounds as if there ought to be some sort of floorshow going on. Something huge and extraordinary, like, well, like the end of the universe. And so that was where the idea for The Restaurant at the End of the Universe came from - from Grand Hotel." ~ Douglas Adams

    I can't believe it! No shouts for this little piece of art? Douglas Adams came up with the idea for "The Restaurant at the End of the Universe" while listening to this.
