Wedding Song Upgrade of the Day: The Piano Guys take on “Pachebel’s Canon in D.” Here’s their explainer:

It’s the same 8 notes over and over and over again. The good news is, it’s easy to memorize. The bad news is you don’t know when to stop. There’s a rumor floating around that says Pachelbel either died while writing it, never finishing the cello part, or that he dated a cellist and it did NOT go well. This arrangement is dedicated to all the cellists that have fallen asleep while playing this song…or at least wanted to fall asleep.

Ahem…all the bitter cello-malice aside, Pachelbel’s Canon in D (written in the 1600′s) has stood the test of time — celebrated as the most recognizable piece of classical music. We like to call it the “one-hit wonder of the 1600′s.”

things i am a fan of in general: non-traditional use of cellos; cellos; pretty much anything anyone has ever done with a cello; THIS

if you’re a musician and you have played this, you know EXACTLY where these guys are coming from. bless.

NON-CELLISTS HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH OF A FUCKING LIFE-RUINER PACHELBEL’S CANON IS. IT’S LIKE. THE WORST. THING. EVER. If you make people perform this live at your wedding then I will make certain to vomit into at least one of your flower-arrangements.
