Pachelbel’s Canon in D & Can’t Help Falling in Love (Piano Medley)

Almost 350 years later, the simply named “Canon in D” (also known as “Pachelbel’s Canon”) is still the #1 wedding processional song in 2021. Impressive if you think about it. Composed in 1680, Johann Pachelbel really had a hit on his hands!

I’m often asked to modernize the Canon into a “medley” with more contemporary music like Perfect by Ed Sheeran & A Thousand Years by Christina Perri. Here is a recent request to medley-ize it with “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley (another very popular processional song – in the top 10, for sure).
