A video a day was hard work; one a week is fun.
Like pretty much everyone, I love Pachelbel’s Canon in D. I can listen to it over and over again – I even have a playlist of nothing but the Canon in D in different interpretations and on different instruments. It is entrancing. I once wrote a short story about a housewife, lonely and unappreciated, who finds comfort in the piece. Too much comfort. She fantasizes about Pachelbel and there is not a happy ending!
Rob Paravonian, on the other hand, is less of a fan. He uploaded this clip from a live performance at Penn State to YouTube on the 21st of November, 2006 and so far it has had 10,495,253 hits. I’d say he struck a nerve, wouldn’t you?
