List Rules Songs with pictures in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about photographs as a subject.

Througout the years there have been some very famous songs about photographs, including "Take a Picture" by Filter and "Pictures of You" by The Cure. There is a fascination with cameras and pictures in music, as they capture a bittersweet memory that is forever etched in the past. Some of these songs have the words "pictures" or "photographs" in the title or lyrics, while others are only about pictures as a subject or theme. If photography is your passion, then these songs will definitely resonate with you. 

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the photographs songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more. This list features items like “Strange Fruit”, “Local Boy in the Photograph”, and many more.
