Then there are those people who say Pachelbel's canon influenced many songs, or even all popular music.. Some connections deserve noting. With others, and I'm not just talking about that video, it's more like the songs share 4/4 timing rather than melody or chord progression. But connections, real or imagined, are always fun. I tried mashing most of Losts themes with Pachelbel's canon in this video. Some had no connection whatever. Others were so similar they scared me.
