Classic Songs Set To Photos

For this week’s Tip Of The Week, I decided it’s time to lighten things up. For years I’ve written about a technique, a new concept, a how-to, something to do with Photoshop or some general photo information. It’s obvious that photography is one of my passions, but you may not know I also enjoy my music. It’s made many a mile driving down the highway or sitting in a plane go by a lot faster and much more enjoyable. While cruising the interstate listening to my iPod set to shuffle, a number of old favorites filled my speakers with sound. Each song made me think about a photo, a photo pun or a visual related to the lyric. As a result, the idea for this week’s tip was born. I Googled classic song lyrics and paired them with a photo that relates to them either literally or figuratively. The following are the words and images I pulled for each. Enjoy the lyrics with their accompanying photo and if you know the tune, sing along as you read!

Imagine John Lennon

Imagine all the people

Livin' life in peace Yoo hoo

You may say I'm a dreamer

But I'm not the only one

I hope someday you'll join us

And the world will be as one

Dock Of The Bay Otis Redding

I'm sitting on the dock of the bay

Watching the tide roll away, ooh

I'm just sitting on the dock of the bay

Wasting time

Good Vibrations Beach Boys

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears

And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair

I hear the sound of a gentle word

On the wind that lifts her perfume through the air

Wish You Were Here Pink Floyd

How I wish

How I wish you were here.

We're just two lost souls,

Swimming in a fish bowl,

Year after year

Running over the same old ground.

What have we found?

The same old fears

Wish you were here

Let It Be The Beatles

And when the night is cloudy

There is still a light that shines on me

Shine on until tomorrow, let it be

Song Is Over Pete Townshend

I sing my heart out to the wide open spaces

I sing my heart out to the infinite sea

I sing my vision to the sky-high mountains

I sing my song to the free.

This Land Is Your Land Peter Paul and Mary

I've roamed and rambled and I followed my footsteps

To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts

And all around me a voice was sounding

This land was made for you and me.

Stairway To Heaven Led Zeppelin

There's a feelin' I get, When I look to the west

And my spirit is crying for leaving

In my thoughts I have seen, Rings of smoke through the trees

And the voices of those who stand looking

Three Little Birds Bob Marley

I woke up this morning,

Smiled at the rising sun,

Three little birds,

Sat on my doorstep,

Singing sweet songs
