      • Breaking The Law - Judas Priest
        20/11/17
        Judas Priest have been very naughty, they have been Breaking The Law. Oddly, on the original single cover artwork there is no evidence of their law breaking, other, perhaps, than their awful red leather pants which are criminal. On the remix there is also no law breaking going on, but the babe enf

      • You Stole The Sun From My Heart - Manic Street Preachers
        19/11/17
        What happens when You Stole The Sun From My Heart? If the original single front cover artwork by Manic Street Preachers is to be believed, all that happens is that you see a sunset. On the remix we find a babe who has also had the sun stolen from her heart at sunset, but has also had her clothes s

      • Too Shy - Kajagoogoo
        18/11/17
        It seems that Kajagoogoo are Too Shy not only to show themselves on the original front cover artwork of their single, but they are so shy, that there is nothing on the front cover other than the title of the song and the name of the artist. On the remix there is a babe who is quite shy, but perhap

      • Take My Hand - Jurgen Vries Featuring Andrea Britton
        17/11/17
        Oh dear... When Jurgen Vries featuring Andrea Britton produced the original single cover artwork for Take My Hand, they clearly had brain-freeze about what to put on it, because other than the name of the artist and the title of the song, they didn't put anything else at all. On the remix we f

      • Behind Closed Doors - Thunder
        16/11/17
        What happens Behind Closed Doors? Well, according to the original album cover artwork by Thunder, we don't know because, assuming that the weird colored thing is meant to be a door, it is closed. On the remix we go the other side of the closed door, a hotel door no less (we can see the '

      • Walking In Rhythm - The Blackbyrds
        15/11/17
        The Blackbyrds are apparently Walking In Rhythm. We say apparently because on the original single cover artwork the band are not actually walking, but are loafing around in some kind of rundown neighborhood. On the remix we find four babes who are walking, but if you look closely, it seems they ma

      • Falling Down - Oasis
        14/11/17
        Britpop rockers Oasis feature for today's remix of their single Falling Down. On the original cover artwork we find some kind of weird flower, dart board, army, Shakespeare combo. On the remix, we find a babe whose towel is falling down. Why there is a white apple on the window ledge is anoth

      • Falling Apart At The Seams - Marmalade
        13/11/17
        Poor Marmalade, it seems they are Falling Apart At The Seams. At least that is what their single is titled, but on the original front cover artwork the clothes the band are wearing do not seem to be damaged in any way. On the remix we find a babe whose clothes have already nearly been torn in two.

      • Can You Dig It - The Mock Turtles
        12/11/17
        When The Mock Turtles ask a question such as Can You Dig It? We would expect that the original single cover artwork might give an indication of what it is that they are expecting us to dig. On the remix we find out more about the situation. It seems there is a pile of dirt that needs digging, but

      • If I Could Fly - Grace
        11/11/17
        Grace is asking a good question when she questions If I Could Fly. If she could fly, she might look a little different to the image on the original single front cover artwork. She might, in reality, look more like the babe on the remix who has swapped her business-like suit, for some flowing wings

      • Showroom Dummies - Kraftwerk
        10/11/17
        Not content with The Model, Kraftwerk also bring us some Showroom Dummies. To be fair to the band, on the original single cover artwork, they do look rather fake, but probably a little too realistic to be real mannequins. On the remix we find three showroom dummies who are all naked. One is a mann

      • Fire - Kasabian
        09/11/17
        There is surely nothing like a Fire to warm you up on a cold autumn evening, is there? Well if the original single cover artwork that Kasabian produced was to be our guide, that would not be the case. On the remix, though, we find a babe who is obviously being warmed by the fire behind her, to the

      • Hey Ya - Outkast
        08/11/17
        Hey Ya by Outkast is known by many people as 'shake it like a Polaroid', which is why we thought that the original single cover artwork could handle a bit of a remix. On the original cover we find the two band members in a combination of yellow and pale blue outfits. On the remix is a ba

      • Pictures Of Lily - The Who
        07/11/17
        Whilst we are in a Lily kind of vibe, here's a remix of Pictures Of Lily by The Who. The original single cover artwork shows us the band members who may or may not be looking at pictures of lily, or any other kind of water-based flora we can not tell. On the remix is another babe who has ende

      • Lily Was Hear - David A Stewart Featuring Candy Dulfer
        06/11/17
        Who is David A Stewart and why is he featuring Candy Dulfer? And why is it that Lily Was Here? All or none of these questions may or may not be answered by the original single cover artwork, depending on your artistic outlook. For us it's all far too amorphous. So instead we remixed the cov

      • Fire Brigade - The Move
        05/11/17
        Having seen our recent The Move regular contributor Phil Darnall of England sent us this remix of Fire Brigade. Phil tells us that in England on 5 November there are lots of fires built and burned all over the country to celebrate the fact that the government was not burned down in the sixteenth ce

      • Star Girl - McFly
        04/11/17
        If we were to use the original single cover artwork for Star Girl by McFly as a guide to the nature of the song, we would be lost as there are no stars and no girls. In fact, one of the band members looks very confused as he is scratching his head. On the remix we find a babe who we presume is the

      • On My Own - Patti Labelle And Michael McDonald
        03/11/17
        In a way, we know that Patti Labelle And Michael McDonald are prone to telling falsehoods. How do we know this? Simply because their duet is called On My Own. Surely On Our Own would be more accurate. The odd original single cover artwork shows the two artist separated by a pink tear and a monoch

      • Wherever I Lay My Hat - Paul Young
        02/11/17
        Paul Young tells us that Wherever I Lay My Hat (That's My Home). Now in principle that might be a reasonable ethos to live by, but in today's society it would make a bit of a mockery of buying a house. If Mr Young can just walk in and take it over by laying his hat down, then what's

      • Losing My Religion - R.E.M.
        01/11/17
        Maybe it's no surprise that R.E.M. are singing about Losing My Religion so soon after Halloween, which is why the original single cover artwork requires a special triple-play remix. On the original cover we find the lead singer looking sad. Perhaps he is sad at having lost his religion? On th
