Eyes and Ears: The Songs of Photography


On any given day, a quick Google search will result in numerous lists and collections of “songs about photography.” I swear, if I see one more list that begins with Nickelback’s “Photograph,” I’m probably going to launch a petition against the Internet. Yes, the entire Internet. For the most part, these lists include any and every mention of words like “camera,” “photograph,” “shutter,” “flash,” or something similar. I took it upon myself to weed through these lists and do my own research on what truly made a song related to photography. Also, I’d like to mention that plenty of great tracks didn’t make it onto the list you’re about to read (notably artists like Ringo Starr and Santana; sorry Lady Gaga), so I’d love for you to leave a comment with some your favorites.
