“Take a Picture” is the second single from Filter’s album Title of Record. The song became a major hit in early 2000. It was the band’s first departure from the industrial rock that they usually played, instead being soft and melodic.
The song’s lush synthesized wall of sound and its lyrics, revolving around the chorus: “Could you take my picture? / ‘Cause I won’t remember”, lends it a surreal and dreamlike aura. Filter’s frontman, and founding member Richard Patrick has said that the song is about him getting drunk on an airplane, taking off all of his clothes, and fighting with the flight attendants who tried to stop him. This would account for the introductory, and later-repeated, lyrics: “Awake on my airplane, awake on my airplane…my skin is bare, my skin is theirs.”1 Comment
