Lights, Camera, Etc.

I am looking for more songs about photography. It turns out, if a rap group has a song with the word “camera” in it, the phrase will most likely be, “Lights, camera, action.” An exception is the EPMD song, “It’s Going Down,” where the line is “No lights, no camera, no action.”

There's a couple of death cab songs with camera references.

What about the Galaxie 500 song "Pictures" or the Mission of Burma one "This is Not a Photograph"?
