YouTube is highlighting today a video that features a young girl playing Mozart around the world. Hence, the video’s title “Where in Heaven is Mozart?” Now, the idea is nice. But why is Pachelbel’s Canon the soundtrack for the clip? Is Eine kleine Nachtmusik no longer recognizable enough? Kind of suggests that we’ve officially achieved Pachelbel Overkill (if it didn’t happen long, long ago). Perhaps this explains why you can now find comic rants against P’s Canon on YouTube as well.
