32 versions of Pachelbel's Canon in D (via J walk)
I listened to the guitar versions, to try to pick the alleged similarities with Streets of London. This was before finding this detailed analysis with midi files
The musical roots of the songs "Seek ye First" and "Streets of London" in Johann Pachelbel's "Canon in D
Streets of London is not among this list of Songs based on Pachelbel's Canon, although it is listed here at Coverinfo where you can in turn discover the covers of Streets of London.
Wikipedia's Pachelbel's canon in Popular Culture
And also List of popular songs based on classical music
Pachelbel's Cannon on Pipes? Anyone ever hear of it?
There's also "The First Noel" (or is it Nowell?) which I've heard sung by a combined children & adult choir, with pipe organ.

ah yes, an arrangement I no well.
Actually, I hadn't heard of it, wen, but it sounds good. Googling brought me to this related page of "Partner Songs"
From that list how could you go past.
"Here We Go around the Mulberry Bush" and "Oh Dear, What Can the Matter Be"
If you threw in a pipe organ to that combo it would be perfect.
(nb got a "questionable content' block for this comment - it didn't like the 2 words after "here we..." in the quote so I made it "around")

The Canon in D on bagpipes is by Colin Clansey and can be heard on a brilliant CD called "Wagner's Rinse Cycle" (an ABC Classic FM disc) which is full of musical jokes and silliness.

I fought fire one summer at a place just outside Igo round Redding in Northern California.
I did, but I'm only saying that because...say, you don't mind my doing all this do you?

Does indeed look good - and I may have to try to acquire this CD. A lovely outcome from a whimsical link.
No, Go for it, G o Roam in the gloamin...
