Pachelbel's Cannon

This is a fairly questionable one, and may be just a misspelling. It would be more convincing if it were a more violent piece of music.

...then there’s the Taco Bell Canon, which includes everything on every menu ever printed in the company’s history.

Re: Pachelbel's Cannon

I can attest that Woodworking’s variant actually exists in the wild. I worked in a record store in the days before iTunes; as the wedding months of May and June approached, we eagerly anticipated the first customer to ask for Taco Bell’s “Canon.” Kinda like tourists in Capistrano waiting for that first swallow.

Re: Pachelbel's Cannon

...and “Woodworking” is a frequent eggcorn for my actual business name, “Wordworking.”

Re: Pachelbel's Cannon

But the cannon belongs to Tchaikovsky, in the 1812 Oversight. Or to Bachman and Turner, in the 1812 Overdrive.

Oops, sorry Wordworking. Didn’t mean to eggcorn you.

Nice to see there’s another East Bayite on the forum.

Re: Pachelbel's Cannon

There is also Francisco Bell’s Cannon, the one with added tympani.

Fur Elise & Paco Bell Cannon

Minuet, Paco Bell Cannon, Paper Moon, Trumpet Volintary, Ario Sorrento, Tarentella, Joy

That might be “Torna a Surriento”, ripped in Sorrento. I’ll leave Fur Elise alone.
