Pachelbel Rant

Rob Paravonian's amusing whinge about the Pachelbel Canon [and especially about the boring 8 note repetitive cello part] is great fun. However, if you are one of those people who don't swallow everything they're told, if you check out some of the songs he claims are really just Pachelbel Redivivus, you'll find it isn't quite true: Let It Be is a case in point. The chords begin like the canon, but McCartney's 4th chord is not Pachelbel's.
