Song-ography - Oct 13




Here's a new fun meme to join! You'll Shoot Your Eye Out rules are:

1.  Would be kinda cool if you would link back to my blog somewhere...ANYWHERE
2.  Would be kinda cool if you "followed" me.  Not to the bathroom or anything creepy...just here in blog-land.
3.  Please link up using your permalink URL.
4.  Photos MAY or MAY NOT be recently taken.  Heck, sometimes you might see a song title and think "I ALREADY have an amaaaaaaazing photograph for that song title!"  No reason you shouldn't use it.  Amazing is amazing regardless of when it's taken, right?
5.  Would be kinda cool if you'd visit some of the other participants and leave a kind word or two.  I'm from Philly, and you KNOW we have a rep for being the kindest and friendliest peeps in the world :)
6.  You may have one photo,  or drop a photo bomb of photos in your link up post.  Just please make sure your photo(s) are an interpretation of the song title for the week. 
7.  Link-up will be available beginning Sunday mornings.
8.  Tell lots, and LOTS of your blogging friends so I don't feel like I'm sitting at the school lunch table all by myself on Sunday morning.  I don't want to be a "Lonesome Loser" and have to post a photo about it.Got it?  Sunday, link up, song titles, photographs that are interpretations, a mash up I'm calling Song-ography, be there...YO.





Bruce Hornsby - Look Out Any Window

It doesn't matter where in the world we live, we want the same simple things, a decent job, a roof over our heads, food on the table and our families safe and sound. Too bad "the big boys" don't care.
These photos were taken in the US, Canada, China.



There's a man workin' in a field
See's the rain and it's burning
He's saying this can't be real
As he sees the color of the fields turning
Far away the men too busy getting rich to care
Close their eyes and let it all out into the air
Hoping nobody else would care

Driving through Pennsylvania 

Look out any window
Look out any open door
Look out any window
See what's going on in the world around you

There's a man working on a boat
Pulling lines from the water
Just trying to stay afloat
Filling the nets is getting harder
Far away they bend the rules so secretly
Close their eyes and let it all out into the sea
Hoping nobody else would see

Nova Scotian fisherman

Look out any window
Look out any open door
Look out any window
See what's going on in the air around you

Springhill Nova Scotia Minere' Memorial

Far away too many leaders let them get their way
Close their eyes and let it all out into the bay
Say they'll clear it up another day


Tiananmen Square China - also called Statue to the People, People's Statue, or Worker's Statue.


Look out any window
Look out any open door
Look out any window
See what's going on in the air around you


Look out, look out for the big boys
Telling you everything they're gonna do
Look out, look out for the fat cat builder man
Turning this into a wasteland
Look out, look out for the back room boys
That say the smoke is gonna blow away
Look out, look out for the men who say it's okay
Sitting in a building far away


More condos being built in downtown Toronto

  2. Great photos from your travels. Such a gift to visit here and have a little window on the world! I'm going to be driving through Pennsylvania in two weeks...so that shot got me excited. The song does talk about struggle - and you've shown that well.

  5. I like your responses to the song. I especially like the FV at the docks and seeing that sculpture. I'm guessing it's amazing to see all the detail in person.
