The Unknown Beauty Of The 80's Vol. 186

Postby Rissan » Wed Nov 10, 2021 1:12 am

This weeks thematic volume has everything to do with photography. Inspired by a weekly television program called "Het beste plaatje" (the best picture), my love for photography, and certainly the love for music made me to go through my collection and pick out all those wonderful tracks about pohtography, that have not been featured in The Unknown Beauty Of The 80's sofar. I came up with a nice collection of songs, from well known to lesser known, that shows the variety in inspiration. Up for one week.

The tracks:

01. John Greaves - Photography (3:52)
02. The Books - Photomaton (3:58)
03. A Flock Of Seagulls - Wishing (if I had a photograph of you) (4:59)
04. Mission Of Burma - This Is Not A Photograph (1:57)
05. Walkie Talkies - Photosynthesis (5:51)
06. Blanket Of Secrecy - Photography (4:40)
07. The Nerves - Passport Photograph (3:04)
08. Saints - Photograph (3:56)
09. Adrenalin - Photograph (time passes on) (4:17)
10. Danceclass - Talking Photos (3:41)
11. Depeche Mode - A Photograph Of You (3:04)
12. Sherrie Actor - Boy On The Photograph (3:51)
13. The Thoughts - Face In Photograph (4:19)
14. Gary Numan - Photograph (2:27)
15. Joy Of Life - Letter And A Photograph (3:23)
16. Basczax - Karleearn Photography (6:19)
17. Kevin Coyne - I've Got The Photographs (2:57)
18. Seiko Matsuda - Photograph Of Yesterdays (3:59)
