Johann Pachelbel's Pachelbel's Canon


Pachelbel’s Canon is an accompanied canon by the German Baroque composer Johann Pachelbel in his Canon and Gigue for 3 violins and basso continuo (German: Kanon und Gigue für 3 Violinen mit Generalbaß) (PWC 37, T. 337, PC 358). It is sometimes called Canon and Gigue in D or Canon in D. Several months after the Paillard recording was released, two groups released successful singles with a backing track based on Pachelbel’s Canon: Greek band Aphrodite’s Child with “Rain and Tears” and Spanish group Pop-Tops with “Oh Lord, Why Lord”. In 2002, pop music producer Pete Waterman described Canon in D as “almost the godfather of pop music because we’ve all used that in our own ways for the past 30 years”. He also said that Kylie Minogue’s 1988 UK number one hit single “I Should Be So Lucky”, which Waterman co-wrote and co-produced, was inspired by Canon in D.
