The Classics Strike Again


Was on YouTube yesterday watching Hitler rants and I ran across a comedian with a guitar doing a rant about Pachibel's Canon in D.  It was hilarious!  He was playing Pachibel's Canon in D on the guitar and said that he hadn't always been a cool dude with a guitar, but rather, a geek kid playing the cello, and that he'd loved all the classical music he'd played except Pachibel because the cello only got to play 8 lousy notes D,A,Bm,F#,G,D,G,A) over and over ---54 times-- (he'd counted it) and so he hated it, but couldn't escape it.  They'd played it at a step-nephew-in-law's graduation  with Vitamin C singing their version of it , turned on classic rock station and Arrowsmith is singing it as "Crazy", folk station had another version, Blues Traveler is doing it and calling it "Run Around", Plain White T-Shirts are doing it as "Hey There Delilah", Green Day calls it "Hope You're Had the Time of You Life", the Beatles did it as "Let it Be", U-2 "I'll Wait For You"----- so there's no escaping it.  I laughed till I cried.
And by the way, if you haven't seen any of the Hitler Rants you're missing a good laugh, particularly the one about Brett Favre and old fart quarterbacks.
