I absolutely cannot stand the standard Canon in D (Pachelbel's Canon, etc.), it's so overdone and cliche I don't want it anywhere near my wedding. Unfortunately, my darling fiance LOVES it. Anyone know of any upbeat or campy remakes or covers of this classic? I think I'd be able to tolerate better it if it weren't so stuffy, or classical, (or the version by Transiberian Orchestra, ech!).
Also, when is this usually played? At the beginning when the wedding party comes in before they start "here comes the bride?"
