I'm sure many readers are familiar with the famous piece of Baroque music known as Pachelbel's Canon. For those who aren't, here's a rendition of it in its classical form.
Reader Tom C. e-mailed me the link to this rant by comedian-musician Rob Paravonian about the Canon, and its purportedly sinister influence on much of modern music. When I stopped laughing, I thought you might enjoy it, too.
LANGUAGE ALERT: Not always safe for work or children.
To my surprise, Tom turned out to be unfamiliar with one of the most innovative modern renditions of the Canon, performed in heavy rock mode by Taiwanese guitarist Jerry C. Here it is, for those who haven't heard it. It's long since become a viral favorite on YouTube.
