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.
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.
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.
