1000 Wonders - The art of Northern Soul Lyrics

All those great northern soul lyrics, together on a beautiful premium A1 matt print. The northern soul gift of a lifetime. 

INTRODUCTION

‘It’s all over like a three leaf clover’.
‘She stands five feet tall and a quarter.’
‘Once I stopped to watch a tree grow’.
To most people, these words don’t mean a thing. To us, the tiny lucky minority, they mean everything. Some are funny. Some are heartbreaking. Some are plain genius. Some… well, some just transport you for no clear reason. They just feel right.
Here they are, thousands of them, all together on a huge premium print

THE STORY

I’ve always been obsessed by (and I’ve always jotted down) all those northern soul lyrical gems, I recently decided to compile them in one place. It turned out to be a pretty big place, because there are just so many great words. Now I’ve put them all together in a huge print. It’s deliberately strange-looking. It looks like a novel’s worth of words on your wall. Nice and… different. 
And I thought it would be good to pick 25 monster sounds to create an artwork for, so people can tailor-make their print according to their fave tune.
(If you can’t find a song you love from Paris, Cecil Washington, Larry Clinton, George Blackwell, Eddie Parker, Magnetics and Norma Jenkins and the other 18 I picked, maybe it’s not for you.) 
They’re all there: from the Salvadors to the Silhouettes to Silky Hargreaves. From Soul Bros Inc to Susan Rewis to Steve Flanagan. From Stacy Henry to Speed Limit. It goes on and on. And these are just some of the S artists! 
The images are made from old green record sleeves and all kinds of scrap.

Brilliant stuff, love the way you've approached this with such inspiration from the lyrics and the music. Chalky's comment about being able to get something fresh from the work each time he wants to take a look epitomises what is so rewarding about great art.

Yes the image is Paris but the lyrics are from many 45s. 
 

They really do look fantastic and a great addition to any record room.
