We are discussing ballads this week in class and we have noticed that a lot of ballads share the same tune. I found this to be similar with Pachelbel’s Canon. It seems to show up in a lot of contemporary songs. Green Day’s Basket Case is based off of Pachelbel’s Canon and also the 90s hit by Vitamin C called Graduation. Many songs are inspired by or share the tune of Pachelbel’s Canon. I found this interesting, it seems this has not changed in music over all these years.
