Story behind the song
Inspired by some old time favorites : Romantics & Cheap Trick the featured girl is my old girlfriend Denise Kling or was it Chrissy Borchman or Maureen Kostka, Eileen Barnes. Julie Gulbransen (super Hottie & still 36), LISA STREED, or Chantel,??? or SUSZIE Pauwels aka susie in "PHOTOGENIC" WOW so many gorgeous girls I STILL LOVE U ALL !!! Any how = Mike, Mark and my Cousin Dan & I are jammin in a garage on E. State St. in Rockford, IL - 1980 or so= "THE DIAL-TONES" = Mark says here's a song "She's Photogenic" with a little riff, we all kinda jump on it, MIKE puts a nice bridge/chord change in we come up with more together but nearly 30 years of not lettin it die I finish it my way-but I have to hand it to - Dan's great drum style in my head , Mark's crafty vocals, even some other dude, that originally was Cheap Trick's lead singer Brad Hamlet, I think, he gave us some imput on harmony ideas, but MIKE COULAHAN !!! has and will always will be my favorite songwriting collaborator. MIKE has more drive, talent and musical inspiration than anyone I have ever known. MIKE if you ever were to read this I waNT U 2 know you R the best -- "ROCK ON" MIKE !!!!! johnnyz
Lyrics
1st verse johnny's in love with his 35mm suzie's in love love with with the ekctachrome she just didn't realize she was underdeveloped or maybe she was overexposed chorus she's photogenic, she's so photogenic 2nd verse johnny's in the darkroom w/his color glossy 8x10's suzie's beamin smile hits the shutter again she just didn't realize that the camera was loaded when she popped the back open & exposed the film chorus, instrumental 3rd verse johnny's in love with his rock n roll video suzie's into shots on the beach in L.A. she just didn't realize that the camera was rollin when she botched another take on johnny's set chorus (twice)
