Quote from Wikipedia
Pachelbel's Canon also known as Canon in D major, or more formally, Canon and Gigue in D major for three Violins and Basso Continuo (Kanon und Gigue in D-Dur für drei Violinen und Basso Continuo) is the most famous piece of music by Johann Pachelbel. It was written in or around 1680, during the Baroque period, as a piece of chamber music for three violins and basso continuo, but has since been arranged for a wide variety of ensembles. The Canon was originally paired with a gigue in the same key, although this composition is rarely performed or recorded today. It is well known for its chord progression which has become one of the most used in popular music.

Still don't remember about what song we are talking about?

What's amazing about this piece of song (that's incredibly catching) is the number of different versions that has been made for very different instruments. I attach a tecno-like one that I found pretty good.
Want more? Check out this rock version by JerryC (that is, if you haven't listened to it already):

You wouldn't imagine how famous it is. Just take a look at the following video (which is pretty funny):

Know any more versions? Post them!

There doesn't seem to be a good feed online for it, but Taco Bell - Michigan Amazin' Blue on Wasting our Parents money is one of the best renditions of the tune that I've found

Relatively ancient and inactive

Yeah, Pachelbel rocks. One of my favorite pieces. 'Punk rock is just a joke, it's really all Baroque'.. priceless.

Best song ever. Period. That's always been my favorite.

mattrach makes me laff, because his eyes at 0:32.

Oh, but it's in this Canon video by him.

I never get tired of that one. Played it 3 violins a few years back for a performance organized by the music school I went to at the time. I still play it every now and then when I'm alone at home.

I'll totally look into it whenever I buy a guitar (maybe next xmas?) :P

EDIT: Interesting... I was wondering why this topic is not dying... of course I have a link set as my signature...
The weird part is that I created the signature before IP made the store stuff, so I have the signature disabled (haven't bought it yet) lol
