Song Lyrics 2 - Photography Contest [25 entries]


Winning entry, with a score of:
Contest goal:

We all have a song that speaks to us; that perks us up when we're down or consoles us when we're sad. Maybe we just like rocking out to it or getting jiggy in the club. In any event, take your favorite song and illustrate it through photography.

Any song is acceptable, but try to keep it somewhat mainstream ("Random Indy Band X" may not be recognizable to everyone and, therefore, decrease the impact your photo has on the viewer). Finally, be sure to include the song name, artist's name, and lyrics in the description (you only need the stanza/line that you are depicting in the photograph). Best of luck!

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

Howdie stranger!

My daughter asked me to take this photo of her and her best friend last weekend as her bestie is moving away at the end of the school year. This song seemed to fit too well.

Ooh you're the best friend that I ever had
I've been with you such a long time
You're my sunshine and I want you to know
That my feelings are true
I really love you
Oh you're my best friend (5 years and 1165 days ago)

I'm leaning on the lamp
Maybe you think I look a tramp
Or maybe you think I'm round to steal a car
But no, I'm not a crook
And if you think that's what I look
I'll tell you why and what my motives are.

I'm leaning on the lamp post at the corner of the street
In case a certain little lady comes by
Oh me, oh my
In case a certain little lady comes by.....

Grandpa Was A Carpenter
By: John Prine
Grandpa was a carpenter
He built houses stores and banks
Chain smoked Camel cigarettes
And hammered nails in planks
He was level on the level
And shaved even every door
And voted for Eisenhower
'Cause Lincoln won the war.

There's a grief that can't be spoken.
There's a pain goes on and on.
Empty chairs at empty tables
Now my friends are dead and gone. (5 years and 1167 days ago)
