    Can’t hear it (no speakers), but if the vid doesn’t mention it, try simply changing the key signature on the canon into a minor key, and you end up with “Puff the magic dragon”.

    Dave, you’ve anticipated the gist of his routine — that the signature is so similar to other, contemporary, tunes!

    OK, try the start of the Goldberg Variations and you get “Ode to Joy” (slight change in time signature) and the Blackadder theme.

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
