Song List

Often I will base the concepts of my wallpapers off of song lyrics, which I then include as text in the graphic. Below is a comprehensive list of the songs that I have used in the wallpapers on this site. (I am aware that some of the lyrics were not necessarily written by the performers of the songs. I’m still trying to sort out these credits.) An asterisk (*) denotes an author and book title rather than an artist and song title. In some movie/TV wallpapers, I used quotes from the scene as text or created my own. Those instances are not noted here.
