Songs About Photos
Updated: May 13
Like a photograph, music can evoke strong emotions and memories. It is only natural then that there should be songs about photos. The majority of this list draws inspiration either from a romantic relationship or posing for a camera; nostalgia vs. vanity and glamour. Interestingly enough, some of the more dated songs bring back nostalgia about the types of photos or cameras that were used in the past. For example, the sound of a shutter, or click and flash is described or even heard on the track. Our camera phones take great quality shots in this modern day and age, but they are relatively silent when the sound is turned off. What about sending a photo to a distant love? Should we restore some of these romantic gestures just as we also take to restoring old photographs?
