(If you haven't seen Pachelbel's Rant, I can't recommend it enough: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdxkVQy7QLM)
I can't recommend finding a cellist to watch this with enough. It was sent to me by a dear friend who was one. It's fall-on-floor funny!
Hahaha I love that rant:"When you walk to school with a cello you're like a wounded gazelle on the Serengeti"
My sister (a vocalist) assures me that ALL musicians hate Pachelbels Canon, not just the cellists. Anything that is played over and over again eventually acquires a certain punitive effect
Coming from a school with a stronger-than-average traditional music program (we have very large banjo, fiddle, and mandolin classes), it doesn't get as strong hate here simply because when was the last time you ever heard Pachelbel's Canon on the banjo? Though now I kind of want someone to do that...
In that same traditional music program, I've heard several people saying things along the lines of "Someday, I'm going to play Wagon Wheel at my wedding!" which isn't as inappropriate as a lot of the stuff here, but it's still about hitchhiking, losing all your money at poker, and... possibly drugs; I'm not totally sure what the singer is meant to have been doing with the trucker they hitchhiked with.
