Back to School: Picture Day
by Linda Ryan | September 2, 2014
One of the most nerve-wracking days of the school year is picture day. In a flash (literally), your image is taken, and recorded for posterity (and that could mean decades of torment from classmates). It seems the more stylish you are for school pictures, the more dated you look with the passage of time. Note to self: despite what magazines tell you, trendy clothes and hairstyles aren’t really your BFF.
But it’s a tried and true rite of passage. And since we’re putting the spotlight on going back to school, why not include a playlist about pictures and photographs? From The Kinks’ classic “Picturebook,” to Ed Sheeran’s “Photograph,” songs that honor the reflective spirit of pictures are here at the touch of the play button.
