I decided to take a departure from the songs of my adolescence, and go for one from before that. As I’ve mentioned before, my younger years were laced with mostly Civil War songs and soft rock. And a lot of classical music from the Baroque era. And that is where I get this week’s nostalgia. I remember being about 8 years old and having driven down to Florida with my family to the baroque soundtrack of my dad’s liking, and having Pachelbel’s “Canon in D” stuck in my head and just falling in love with it. I can’t tell you why, but it gives me the chills every time I hear it.
I know there are pieces that are way less overplayed and just as gorgeous, but there is a reason why this one is so popular. It just brings me to another place.
