Songs in Haiku -- First Request

"We got one!!" That's one of my favorite lines from Ghostbusters -- when Janine the receptionist (played by Annie Potts) hits the alarm when she answers their first call for assistance with a ghost.

"We got one" on our other blog (Songs in Haiku) on Friday! Each entry on that blog is a 3 line poem in Haiku form (5-7-5 syllables) that summarizes the lyrics of a song. We have quite a few posts up now, so you're sure to see something you recognize. But an early visitor left a comment asking if we took requests. We thought that would be a good idea. Dianne did some research last weekend and set up a request form on the sidebar of Songs in Haiku. It emails us the information on the form to request a song or artist.

Michele sent in a request for "Whiter Shade of Pale" by Procol Harum. A great song with some lyrics open to interpretation. Since Pat, Dianne, and I have different approaches to summarizing lyrics, we though it would be fun to write three haiku and post them together. Go check out the three versions. Also look at our other posts -- we plan to try and have something new there daily.
