Is that the answer and if so how does it work ? 

 

"Women of the house who love our very own Lifey (6,5)"

 

Lifey (lifetime fan) is Col, and a harem is loosely defined as women of the house in a Muslim family. Since they love hm, they are very much pro-Col. So, a harem that is pro-Col becomes Procol Harum.

 

It makes more sense than equating 'Arctic' with 'lost' anyway.
