Photography has a long and well documented relationship with popular music, inspiring songs with camera sounds in them from artists such as Lady Gaga to Kate Bush. The noise of a good shutter sound can be highly pleasing and instantly recognisable, making camera shutter samples an ideal addition to help create atmosphere within a track or as substitute musical instrument.
Following some Friday afternoon office banter regarding the topic we’ve decided to share a round-up of as many songs as we could think of that include camera sounds in them. The songs range from well known pop chart smashes, to relatively forgotten 80s indie music. Why not challenge your friends to name as many of these songs as possible?
