    The Curse Of Pachelbel

    Y'all know his Canon in D major, right?

    But watch this:

    Oh Mat, that's a beauty! The line about a kid carrying a cello being like a wounded gazelle on the Serengeti reminded me of my days dragging a violin to school!

    Mat - classic, thanks, made me laugh.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.
    —Albert Einstein.

    I've got another one to add to the dude's list of songs based on Pachelbel's Canon-

    Pet Shop Boys - Go West


    ''Music, I feel, should be emotional first and intellectual second.'' - Maurice Ravel
    ''The greatest education in the world is watching the masters at work.'' - Michael Jackson
