I listen to music a lot. And it seems like lately I’ve come across a fair number of songs that have something to do with cameras. Just for fun, here’s a sampling, some classics, some questionable, and some newer ones, too.
- Kodachrome by Paul Simon
- I Turn My Camera On by Spoon
- F-Stop Blues by Jack Johnson
- Photograph by Natalie Merchant
- Photograph by Ringo Starr
- The Harsh Truth of the Camera by Morrissey
- A Photograph of You by Depeche Mode
- Pictures of You by Oingo Boingo
- Photograph by Ella Fitzgerald
- Photograph by Camper Van Beethoven
Some my myTunes library:
Local Boy in the Photograph by TheStereophonics
Photo Jenny by Belle & Sebastian
Camera by REM
Camera Shy by The Lucksmiths
Good Looks To Camera EP by The Bank Holidays
And “Photograph” by Def Leopard!
Kamera by Wilco
I suppose I don’t need to mention that “Photograph” by Camper Van Beethoven is a cover of “Photograph” by Ringo. I’d submit “Picturebook” by the Kinks, and “Photobooth” by Death Cab for Cutie.
