Everyone's heard Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D Major at some point, right?   :)

Here's the most awesome rendition:

It began here, in 2011

That is AWESOME!!!

Some of my best memories are from Concert Band in Winter!

I was raised on Classical. First time I ever heard of Pop music was at age 10 when I was introduced to "The Osmonds" and "Jackson 5" playing on the stereo in the HS band-room one day when we got there for Beginner Band classes.

Come to find out later, my parents liked a lot of the music of the 50's and 60's but they never played it around me b/c they considered a lot of the lyrics to be suggestive & they didn't want me asking any of my direct questions about some things.

Back then, I guess playing anything like Jerry Lee Lewis to a kid would have been on par with playing Lady GaGa to a kid today.  :-\

Oh yeah. Worse than GaGa.
They banned Bobby Darin's "Splish Splash", too  :o

If you get the chance, grab the film "American Hot Wax", the story of Alan Freed.  thumbsup1
Many of the R&R Pioneers are in the film, too (Chuck Berry, Jerry L Lewis...)   

Might like this (nope, NOT Elvis singing!) :




Better sound but cuts off earlier:

Acid Rock, Classical & Big Bands/Sinatra were probably the only genres not played @ our house in the '60s-'70s.  Don't know how I got hooked on the latter so young  Bumpurr1

Big Bands/Sinatra

LOL...the term "Big Bands" always brings Lawrence Welk to mind for some reason--and The Lennon Sisters on it! That show was ALWAYS watched!  funny2

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that Glenn Miller Story clip!

I love old movies, and I especially loved that old one! Anything with James Stewart in it is great!
