Song 7:  Song That Reminds You of a Certain Event

Artist: Jerry C.

Song:  “Canon Rock”

Album:  n/a

When Sarah and I got married, one of the first things we had to work on coming to a compromise over was, “What song are we walking down the aisle to?” and “What song are we walking back up the aisle together to?” (Tough choices, right?)

Sarah wanted to walk down the aisle to Pachbel’s “Canon in D.” Ultimately the wedding is her show, so that wasn’t too hard to agree on together. But the walk back up the aisle was another. Whatever we were going to do, I wanted to do something epic. After watching an episode of Scrubs (scene embedded below), I really wanted the groomsmen to do an air band with me doing “lead vocals.”

Sarah nixed that idea. So then I had her listen to Jerry C.’s arrangement of “Canon in D” called “Canon Rock.” While Sarah still did not approve of an air band -even an instrumental one- she did approve of the song choice as our song to walk back up the aisle after the wedding ceremony.

When the time came for us to walk back up the aisle after the ceremony’s conclusion, everything to that point had gone smoothly. As we turned and started to walk down the steps, however, the train of Sarah’s wedding dress took out a small decoration to the side of the platform, thereby cementing the ceremony and “Canon Rock” together as an inseparable pair.
