Austin Texas photo booth Trailer Booth Photography is now booking holiday parties! Book yours now!
We all know it: It's just not a party without great music! That's why Austin, Texas, photo booth Trailer Booth Photography makes it possible to hook up your party playlist in their gorgeous Shasta Airflyte trailer. To that end, here's a collection of great songs all titled “Photograph” to get your party-goers in the mood!
Photograph by Def Leppard
You just can't help but rock out to this great '80s jam. As the lead single from Def Leppard's third album, it reached the top spot on the Billboard chart. The song tells a typical story about a guy who wishes he could be with a certain girl, but now she's gone and all he has is her photograph. The music video features a Marilyn Monroe impersonator, leading some people to speculate that she is actually the subject of the song, but lead singer Joe Elliott has long insisted that's not the case. Regardless, Def Leppard's “Photograph” straddles the line between heavy metal and '80s pop, and it's an excellent, upbeat choice for your photo booth playlist!
Photograph by Ringo Starr
Ringo Starr is probably best known as The Beatles' drummer, but he went on to have a solo career, and his “Photograph” was one of his first big solo hits. He worked on it with fellow Beatle George Harrison, and it's the only song for which they officially share a writing credit. In the lyrics, Starr laments over a lost love and his lack of hope they will ever get back together; all he has now is a photograph of her. But though the words are somewhat sorrowful, the song is in a warm major key. On his collaborations with Harrison, Starr once said, “I only know three chords and he'd stick four more in, and they'd all think I was a genius.” The number of chords aside, we think this is a pretty genius song, and the lovely tune will help generate lots of smiles!
Photograph by Weezer
This tune is a single from the cult-favorite, alt-rock band's first album after a five-year hiatus, and while it's not hard-hitting in either the music or lyrics departments, it's just a lot of fun. It's really a song about the universality of the human condition, and it only makes this list because of its chorus, which goes “It's in the photograph / It's in the photograph / It's in the photograph of love.” This single wasn't as popular as the other two from the same album, so Weezer decided to pass on a big-budget music video for it and instead have their friend and webmaster Karl Koch shoot and edit on-stage and behind-the-scenes footage from one of the band's tours. The great thing about the music video is how it shows little clips – snapshots, if you will – of good times in regular life – which is what photo booths are all about!
Fotografía by Juanes featuring Nelly Furtado
A beautiful ballad by Colombian superstar Juanes and Portuguese-Canadian singer Nelly Furtado, this song's title means “Photograph” in Spanish. It's a great addition to your playlist, especially if you're going to have some Spanish-speaking guests, and even if you're not, English-speakers will pick up on the word foto, which is pronounced almost identically to “photo.” The song's lyrics talk about taking comfort in pictures of a sorely missed loved one, which is something nearly all of us can relate to. While most of your party playlist will probably be upbeat songs, it's important to include periodic slow songs to give the fast ones extra oomph!
Photograph by Ed Sheeran
Our final “Photograph” song is a popular one by British crooner/rapper Ed Sheeran, which he wrote in collaboration with Johnny McDaid of Snow Patrol, while Sheeran and Snow Patrol were on tour together in May 2012. It was at least partially inspired by Sheeran's homesickness and longing for his then-girlfriend, singer Nina Nesbitt, while he was touring. This tender ballad muses on how love can hurt us, but it can also heal us. The pre-chorus goes “We keep this love in a photograph / We make these memories for ourselves / Where our eyes are never closing / Hearts are never broken / Time's forever frozen still.” In other words, photographs are fixed records of beautiful, happy moments, which is exactly what we at Trailer Booth Photography Photo booth Austin Texas hope you take away from our trailer!
