TGIF: Pachelbel for Cello Blows

It’s the holiday season, never one of my favorite times of the year. But Pachelbel’s Canon in D is one of the few pieces of music that gets me even close to the holiday spirit. I was an orchestra geek in high school (I played the flute and actually still do – at least it isn’t bigger than me). Maybe that’s why I found Rob Paravonian’s rant against this particular piece of music way too funny – and also terribly interesting, because he also kinda explains the origins of all pop music. (Also, as a flutist, I do get to play the melody…)

Sing along; these lyrics are GREAT – ‘specially if you’re feelin’ a little frustration at the office 🙂
