    Default Photography in Music (Kodachrome)

    Hi,

    For those who missed Quiz #8, I thought this might be interesting to bring up as a separate thread. The slide film Kodachrome is such a classic that Paul Simon actually wrote a song of the same title.

    The lyrics goes:

    When I think back
    On all the crap I learned in high school
    It's a wonder
    I can think at all
    And though my lack of education
    Hasn't hurt me none
    I can read the writing on the wall

    Kodachrome
    You give us those nice bright colors
    You give 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 Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away

    If you took all the girls I knew
    When I was single
    And brought them all together for one night
    I know they'd never match
    My sweet imagination
    And everything looks worse in black and white

    Kodachrome
    You give us those nice bright colors
    You give 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 Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away

    Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away

    Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away

    Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away

    Mama, don't take my Kodachrome
    Mama, don't take my Kodachrome
    Mama, don't take my Kodachrome (away)

    Mama, don't take my Kodachrome
    Mama, don't take my Kodachrome
    Mama, don't take my Kodachrome (away)

    Mama, don't take my Kodachrome
    (Leave your boy so far from home)
    Mama, don't take my Kodachrome (away)
    Any people know other photo-related songs?

    Regards

    “How much did Kodak pay him”
    Must we be paid when we rejoice in a product
    or service?

    The same espisode can be applied to all those
    who had shared and rejoiced about the places for
    good chicken rice and bak kut teh. How much did
    those hawkers pay you?

    Will any one of us get paid when we write a song
    in celebration of Clubsnap?

    Just feel happy to share what I have found out,
    that Kodachrome has been known among photographers
    as the finest slide film ever made.

    A place to start is Clubsnap
    Where sincere enthusiatic photographers gathers
    Giving off their valuable time for nothing
    Just to make the community grow
    Going more and more vibrant day after day
    The world will soon recognize this small hot chilly
    could be trusted to do photographic services that
    would benefit man and his surroundings.


    ___________________________________
    Can we argue that we could improve life when
    we are able to share and give without reward so
    as to benefit others?

    Anyone here can write a song for Clubsnap?
    But please don't ask for a thousand dollar cheque!
