Was just doing a search on Amazon for "Leica" and came up with this:

American folk song about German camera. Hmm... Why not? Only 99 cents, too!

If Janis Joplin can sing "...buy me a Mursaydeez Benz...", why not a Leica song?

Oh Lord won't you buy me an old Leica M,

A two or a three, a four or a six,

But never a five, or a seven or eight,

'Cause I stick with the classics,

That's been my fate

In the iTunes Store, it's by far his most popular song. 'Chicken Liver Blues' comes in 2nd. :eek:

The lyrics are priceless ...

Well I'll take her up to Heaven
because she's been through Hell

This ol' Leica Camera
that Oscar Barnack built so well

Does anybody have a harmonica baseplate they want to sell? Chrome preferred. Black paint rubs off on my teeth.

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Leica M9,
Swap out the chip from this M8 of mine.
Bend physic's laws with full frame this time,
Oh Lord won't you by me a Leica M9?

Oh Lord, won't you create a Leica M9,
My lenses are waiting with bokeh so fine.
Those circles' confusion have muddled my mind,
Oh Lord, won't you create a Leica M9?

Oh Lord, won't you upgrade my Leica M8?
My bank account's empty, but this is my fate.
My shutters are silent when I have to wait,
Oh Lord, won't you upgrade my Leica M8?

Heh heh. With apologies to Janice.

There's also a Leica song, set to a Gilbert and Sullivan tune from "The Pirates of Penzance." :)

That's a good way to sell any song as an MP3..
I have just started a country folk song:

"The ballad of an Hasselblad"

and a Blues for:

"gimme some bacon and a Zeiss Ikon"

who won't put a buck on a song about his prefered camera gear??

I'm sure it will cover for my next lens...:D

Keeping the theme going:

Oh lord, won't you buy me an M3 in black,
One where the finish has brassed out and cracked,
I swear that I'll shoot it, with Tri-x that's a fact,
Oh lord, won't you buy me an M3 in black.

Oh lord, won't you buy me a noctilux lens,
The flash on my camera blinds all my friends,
The future of my work on this glass depends,
Oh lord, won't you buy me a noctilux lens.

Oh lord, won't you buy me an A&A case,
With all this equipment, my bag must keep pace,
A domke or a lowepro would just be a waste,
So lord, won't you buy me an A&A case.
