Song titles (or lyrics) illustrated

Hi everyone;

Okay, this one's a little different. You can be as free and creative (or, silly and ludicrous) as you like. The more imaginative the better. Don't let somebody else using a title or lyric keep you from using the same one, so long as your interpretation of the title or line is different. The more the merrier, I say! So tune your cameras, strum those lenses, warm up them vocal chords, and let's see what happens. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!

I'll start:


Gimme shelter. (Rolling Stones, 1969)





All the lonely people, where do they all come from? (Beatles, Eleanor Rigby, 1966)





There is a crack in everything

That's how the light gets in (Leonard Cohen, Anthem, 1992)

Another Eleanor Rigby (Beatles)

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Eleanor Rigby

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied ...

I always thought this was a great theme. I don't have any images handy to share, but here's a link to an old thread on a similar theme:

Good catch! I hadn't actually checked to see if there was an existing thread. My bad! Looks like it had gone quiet. We'll see how this one goes!

Next song?

If it's all the same to you, I think it would be good to merge this new thread with the previous one. Either way, it's a great topic and I will be keeping my eye out for ways to contribute.

When Walt saw this he posted that it reminded him of the lyric. “Little boxes made of ticky tack”

Strawberry Fields Forever, The Beatles

Strawberry Field, Liverpool

A little bit of history: In 2011, the ornate iron gates of the children's home which inspired John Lennon's psychedelic Beatles anthem Strawberry Fields Forever were removed.
The Salvation Army, which owns the former home, is putting the red Victorian gates into storage. It means Beatles fans who pass the Woolton site on bus tours will now be met with 10ft (3m) high replicas.
The charity said fans would still get an "authentic experience", but one tour guide said they were "aghast". Replicas of the 100-year-old wrought iron gates were made by metal work specialist Jim Bennett, from Aigburth, and given to The Salvation Army.

Excellent! Strawberry Fields Forever has always been one of my favourites. Great that you've posted an image of the song's source inspiration. Great story too! Thank's for sharing; well done!
