Right its 3:48am and I have to be up for work in 2hours and 12minutes. But there's a thunderstorm so I am sitting here nursing a completly manic barking cocker spaniel...nice! Anyway I suddenly realised that James Blunts new single "high" has great lyrics for a landscape photographer:

Quote:Beautiful dawn - lights up the shore for me.
There is nothing else in the world,
I'd rather wake up and see....

Can anyone else suggest an sutible photographers song lyrics?

Seems fairly obvious:-

"Kodachrome, it gives us those nice bright colors
Gives us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah!
I got a Nikon camera, I love to take a photograph
So momma, don't take my Kodachrome away..."

-Paul Simon, Kodachrome,

or perhaps

"She said the man in the gabardine suit was a spy
I said 'Be careful his bowtie is really a camera'"

-Paul Simon, America

A bit of a cr4p suggestion but; The Kinks - Picture book:

Picture yourself when youre getting old,
Sat by the fireside a-pondering on.
Picture book, pictures of your mama, taken by your papa a long time ago.
Picture book, of people with each other, to prove they love each other a long ago.

"I've got your picture, I've got your picture,
I want a thousand of you all to myself
I want a doctor to take your picture
So I can look at you from inside as well"

Turning Japanese, The Vapours

Hope that's not lowering the tone too much ;o)

Time it was, and what a time it was, it was
A time of innocence, a time of confidences
Long ago, it must be, I have a photograph
Preserve your memories; They're all that's left you
Bookends Theme
Paul Simon

One of my favorites

I know this is almost completely off topic but when we got back from County Clare Jackie was in Marks and Sparks and picked up a "Memories of Ireland" CD for me as I love Irish music.

Anyway, the very first track is called something like "Dear old Ireland" but it mentioned several of the places in County Clare that we had actually visited!!

Photographs and memories, Christmas cards you sent to me
All that I have are these to remember you
Memories that come at night take me to another time
Back to a happier day when I called you mine

I'm not sure if any will be relevant to lyrics suitable for photographers, but here's a great quiz on 80's lyrics!
