Last night I watched, for the 1873rd time, the episode “Our Mrs. Reynolds” from the amazing TV series Firefly. Even though it was late at night and I was very sleepy, as soon as it was over I returned to the beginning, during the inadvertent wedding, with the one and only Christina Hendricks dancing to what turned out to be a reworked and much more melodic version of Pachabel’s Canon. . . so I guess playing it over and over doesn’t help, or maybe I’m not sick of it yet.
This morning I’ve been tirelessly searching for the download, only to find it wasn’t included in the official soundtrack. Did find what amounts to a cover version, and while it sounds great, I think it loses something by playing the melody on the fiddle rather than the flute. On the other hand, I just bought it, so. . .
