Photography Within Music

For my last birthday, i was given a subscription to a very nice photography magazine.  This was a gift from my sister and the magazine comes every couple of months.

If you would like to take a sneak peak at some of the issues, you can go to their website: http://www.photolife.com.

In the April/May edition that i just received, Guy Langevin (I am assuming this is him: http://ca.linkedin.com/in/guylangevin) created a list of 16 songs that all have photographic themes to them, whether in the title of the song or in the lyrics.

I must admit, i have never heard of any of the songs in his list.  But then again, i am no music aficionado.  Anyhow, i thought it was pretty cool (apparently, he has done a similar list for movies) and i wanted to share it with everyone.

All of these songs can be found on iTunes:

1)  Polaroid Girl ……………………………………….. Massive Attack

2)  Photograph ………………………………………….Air

3)  Invasion of the Polaroid People ….Add N to (X)

4)  Get Free ……………………………………………….The Vines

5)  The General ………………………………………..The Rifles

6)  Picture Book ……………………………………….The Kinks

7)  It’s My Fault for Being Famous ……The White Stripes

8)  Photo Jenny ………………………………………..Belle and Sebastien

9)  Flashbulb Eyes ……………………………………Arcade Fire

10)  Photo Booth …………………………………….Death Cab for Cutie

11)  Negative Blues ………………………………..Serge Gainsbourg

12)  Beautiful ……………………………………………Belle and Sebastien

13)  Your Picture …………………………………….Camera Obscura

14)  Camera ………………………………………………The Editors

15)  Taking People ………………………………….Cat Power

16)  White Moon …………………………………….The White Stripes

All that there is to be done now, is to download these songs and listen to them.

Happy shooting and listening!
