By the way, "canon" the musical term has nothing to do with "{{canon}}" the literary term for a creator's definitive body of work. Also, don't confuse it with pieces of music that use ''cannons,'' which you'll find under OrchestralBombing.

OrchestralBombing. Funnily enough, most versions nowadays [[NonIndicativeName aren't actually canons]].

* Is one of the [[PublicDomainSoundtrack tracks]] composed for the "VideoGame/PumpItUp" series, with a regular and full track version (a first for the game's original tunes). The song is highly popular with PumpitUp fans, not only for the song's Classical rock- style melody, but because of the [[Animesque anime-style] video that accompanies it, for both having [VisualEffectsofAwesome animation that's considered to be higher quality than most other BGAs in the franchise and for its narrative that provides doses of [TearJerker] and [CrowningMomentofHeartwarming]. The video is even the Trope page for the game! A later remix called Canon X.1 was later released, only it's not a follow up to the first story (despite the video officially being titled Canon-D Part of the Memories #1), and instead tells a separate story that's [[ShoutOut inspired by]] "Anime/NeonGenesisEvangeleon."

A very well-known piece of ClassicalMusic. Written by Johann Pachelbel, it is the first movement of "Canon and Gigue in D", the less-famous second movement being more lively and dance-like. The canon involves a two-bar-long [[PachelbelsCanonProgression ostinato]] (repeating bass progression), over which three instrumental parts each play the same melodic material but starting at different times, each one displaced from the one before by a distance of two bars (one rotation of the ostinato) throughout the canon; this material is written in such a way that the three parts harmonize. The piece is usually performed with a string orchestra, but arrangements of it exist for almost every standard ensemble you can think of. Though Pachelbel was largely forgotten after his death (noted primarily for being a family friend/music tutor of the Bachs and thus indirectly influencing the works of [[Music/JohannSebastianBach J. S.]]), this piece's rediscovery in 1919 skyrocketed him to fame, albeit of the OneHitWonder variety.

By the way, "canon" the musical term has nothing to do with {{canon}} the literary term for a creator's definitive body of work. Also, don't confuse it with the pieces of music that use ''cannons,'' which you'll find under OrchestralBombing.

It's commonly featured in collections of "light" or "soothing" music, and is often played at weddings. It is also a popular selection for use in {{Public Domain Soundtrack}}s. It's the ''[[Music/LynyrdSkynyrd Free Bird]]'' of classical music, exacerbated by its own repetitiveness: [[PachelbelsCanonProgression cellists in particular detest it because it involves playing the same 8-note progression 27 times without variation]].
