I Hate Canon in D

I was a music minor in college (I play the trumpet, for those of you who don't know). I became very attached to some music and composers, and at the same time, I came to loathe some "pieces." One such piece (that I vowed would not be played at my wedding) was Pachelbel's Canon in D for no apparent reason, except it's overplayed and overloved. I'm not the only one, though! Most of my musician friends feel the same way, not to mention 'cello players (who play the same 8 notes over and over and over and over and over). But there are others, this guy for example!! Watch this video and be AMUSED!!
