      • Me And You And A Dog Named Boo - Lobo
        26/07/17
        Now think about this... Me (OK, got that) And You (with you so far) And A Dog Named Boo (and your point)? Well the first point is that on the original cover artwork for Me And You And A Dog Named Boo there is no me, and no you. Also isn't it a bit of a coincidence that the dog's name rhy

      • Nothing - A
        25/07/17
        Yes, believe it or not, there is (or was) and band called A who sang a song whose title was Nothing. You can't make this stuff up. On the original single cover artwork we find the letter A, the word nothing and some band members in black and white, which is almost nothing. On the remix we fi

      • Wet Dream - Max Romeo
        24/07/17
        We are not completely sure what Max Romeo was thinking of with the original single cover artwork for his song Wet Dream, but we think we may get the idea. Why, however, he would resort to a picture of some 1800s era titillation consisting of a babe and her bike for his wet dreams we are not sure.

      • Walking Away - Craig David
        23/07/17
        It might just be us, but we fail to see how the original front cover single artwork for Walking Away by Craig David could picture Mr David in a pose where he is in any position to walk. Not least he has his eyes closed which can make walking very hazardous, but he also appears to be leaning back sl

      • Don't Do It Baby - Mac & Katie Kissoon
        22/07/17
        Mac & Katie Kissoon sing us a song titled Don't Do It Baby. That's OK, we like a good song. But the original single front cover artwork does not give us any indication whatsoever as to what it is that the baby shouldn't do. The remix helps with this as we find a babe trying to c

      • The Climb - Miley Cyrus
        21/07/17
        To be completely honest, we don't know why Miley Cyrus didn't already think of the obvious picture to go on the original front cover single artwork for The Climb, given her propensity for taking her clothes off and doing dangerous stuff with wrecking balls and all that. But no, just a pic

      • Show Me You're A Woman - Mud
        20/07/17
        The title of this song by Mud is Show Me You're A Woman, but on the original single front cover artwork there is neither any evidence of this question being asked, nor of anyone trying to answer it as all we find are the band members looking a bit glum (except the guy on the left who seems far

      • Lady Rose - Mungo Jerry
        19/07/17
        What a terrible original single cover from Mungo Jerry an their song entitled Lady Rose. It simply consists of a photo of the band members looking sullen against a red background, with some extraneous colored shapes designed to make it look as if they are sitting in what looks like a urinal. Thank

      • Barefootin' - Robert Parker
        18/07/17
        We get the idea of the original single cover artwork for Barefootin' by Robert Parker, which is that some three footed person has painted their feet a different color then walked across the cover. A nice try for sure, and it must have been difficult to have found someone with three feet. On t

      • Sexy - MFSB
        17/07/17
        So let's see now, MFSB's idea of what to put on the original single front cover artwork for a song called Sexy is some roses floating in the wind above the sea. Maybe that's what classes for sexy in Philadelphia? On the remix we find a sexy looking babe, who is pouting in a sexy way

      • Don't Look Any Further - M People
        16/07/17
        So when M People were singing Don't Look Any Further, what they seemed to have in mind was the notion that you would stop looking for whatever it was you were searching for, when you found a pink sofa. For some people that may be true, but let's make it more compelling and add a babe to th

      • My Friend The Sea - Petula Clark
        15/07/17
        My Friend The Sea is who Petula Clark sings about. Good for her! But on the original single cover artwork, if Ms Clark is standing near the sea, this is not clear as the beach is totally out of the shot. On the remix we find a babe who is definitely good friends with the sea and we know this beca

      • You Got What It Takes - Showaddywaddy
        14/07/17
        Showaddywaddy tell us that You Got What It Takes, but the original single cover artwork tells us only one thing - that whoever designed it didn't have what it takes. Thankfully, we here at AllBum.Art have got what it takes, to remix artwork that is. On the remix we find a babe who has got what

      • I Can Prove It - Phil Fearon
        13/07/17
        So Phil Fearon thinks that he is so good that he sings I Can Prove It. Who does he think he is, Einstein? According to the original front cover artwork for his single, he is having a double take at some babe wearing high heel stiletto court shoes. What does that prove? On the remix he is looking

      • Spotlight - Jennifer Hudson
        12/07/17
        The one thing that seems to be missing from the original single front cover artwork of Spotlight by Jennifer Hudson is much light. Whilst Ms Hudson's face is lit, if that is by a spotlight then it is clearly in need of a new bulb. On the remix we find a babe who is in an equally dark place bu

      • 18 With A Bullet - Pete Wingfield
        11/07/17
        Pete Wingfield sings about someone who is 18 With A Bullet in this single, but on the original cover artwork we just find Mr Wingfield himself reading a magazine in his kitchen (it looks like he might be eating breakfast). So who is this mysterious 18 year old, and what's the story with the bu

      • Love Me Love My Dog - Peter Shelley
        10/07/17
        Whilst we are in a doggy-related mode, here's another canine remix. We give Peter Shelly several bonus points for appearing on the original front cover artwork of his single Love Me Love My Dog, with his mutt. On the first remix we find another babe who loves her dog, so much so in fact that

      • Hounds Of Love - Kate Bush
        09/07/17
        Another remix for Kate Bush, this time for her 1985 album Hounds Of Love. On the original album cover artwork we find Ms Bush lying down with two mutts who she seems to like, so nearly full marks for sticking to the brief and showing off the singer and the title of the album. On the remix we find

      • Pretty Little Angel Eyes - Showaddywaddy
        08/07/17
        We are not sure which member of the band has the Pretty Little Angel Eyes that Showaddywaddy are referring to and singing about in their single. Is it one of the the guys wearing sunglasses maybe as the rest of the band look about as angelic as a bored dachshund eating mold from a toiled bowl. On

      • Horny Horns - Perfect Phase
        07/07/17
        The original single artwork for Horny Horns by Perfect Phase is one of those front covers that suggests that the band weren't really expecting the song to be a hit (which it wasn't really) as no effort has been made to represent anything to do with the band or the song at all. Thank goodn

      • Get Up And Boogie - Silver Convention
        06/07/17
        We give Silver Convention half marks for the original single cover artwork of Get Up And Boogie. Why only half? Well full points for having the band members on there. Half marks as only two of them are wearing silver. And no marks for the fact that none of them appear to be having a boogie, or a

      • Let It Rain - 4 Strings
        05/07/17
        Not necessarily a request that everyone would endorse but 4 Strings want to Let It Rain. There are occasions when such a request might have merit but the original single cover artwork doesn't indicate this, instead we just see the singer and no indication of the level of precipitation. On the

      • American Dream - Jakatta
        04/07/17
        It's the Fourth of July, so we thought we would do something patriotic and remix the cover artwork for a song with an American theme. American Dream by Jakatta seemed like the ideal choice. Not only was the original cover artwork so bad, but the remix is so good. What could be more dreamy fo

      • Superabundance - Young Knives
        03/07/17
        Sometimes we wonder whether, when putting together the artwork for the front cover of their albums and singles, artists really want to put something specific on them but are not allowed to by their record company. We think this might be the case for the Young Knives, whose original cover for Supera

      • Photograph - Nickelback
        02/07/17
        We can't believe it has taken us quite so long to get around to remixing some cover artwork from Nickelback. Today it is the turn of their 2005 single Photograph. ON the original front cover we find some photographs which may contain the band members (though it's difficult to tell as the

      • Behind The Mask - Fleetwood Mac
        01/07/17
        Another remix for Fleetwood Mac. The place that they are telling us to look is Behind The Mask. That being said, on the original front cover artwork for their single, there is no evidence of any kind of mask, unless that is a codeword for a band playing in front of someone's house. On the r
