@chronicwhimsy:  THIS IS MY FAVORITE THING EVER.  When it first came out, I cried from laughing.  I’m also a musician though. 😛

LOL love this!!  I hated playing the cello as a kid (I wanted to play violin) for every reason that he lists.

That’s funny!  We did our procession to Canon, and I made my entrance at exactly the part he’s talking about 🙂  But we had 2 violins.  I LOVE the cello.  If I could learn any instrument, that would be it.  But when I think of my favorite cello pieces, it’s Bach and not Pachabel.  His song mash up at the end is quite creative!

I can’t wait to watch this when I get home from work. I’m a musician, and I’m definitely in the “really really sick of pachelbel’s canon” camp. 🙂

Awesome. Whereas I play the violin, so naturally I love the piece!

Hilarious! Thanks for sharing. I have always loved that piece but I can see why a cellist would get sick of it!

I play the bass guitar and clarinet. For a music competition my band director thought it was a great idea to throw me on an upright bass to accompany a flute group playing this song. He’s right it is incredibly boring, but it is possible to play it in a competition after only 3 weeks of learning string bass 😛

That was hilarious! But now each time I hear those other songs, I’ll be thinking of his 8 notes haha
