Shades (music single)

Shades is a piece of instrumental music performed by the United Kingdom Symphony Orchestra, which was used in the UK as the theme to the Dulux Paint commercial in 1985 The song made the UK Singles Chart, where it stayed for four weeks, peaking at number 68.

The United Kingdom Symphony Orchestra was conducted by Donald Gould. The single was produced by David Mindel and François Trichot (the latter of whom also wrote and produced the B-side, titled 'Double Meaning')

The lyrics are :

May the gloss in Ross be a good gloss, May the windowsills of Winchester shine, May the doors of Wales Dry as hard as nails, Ceilings cover well In Motherwell, The walls of Birmingham Wipe clean of pea and ham, And the skirting boards of Fife Have a long life, So brush in hand Decorate this land With the best paint. Dulux — there's no better paint.
