      • 5 Colours In Her Hair - McFly
        31/01/16
        She has 5 Colours In Her Hair, at least she does if McFly are to be believed. But other than looking like a load of teenage jerks, the original cover material does not illustrate what this might look like. Is it auburn, blonde, brown, red and grey? Well, not it's not, as we can see in the re

      • That Don't Impress Me Much - Shania Twain
        30/01/16
        That Don't Impress Me Much, Shania Twain, not I am not impressed at all, never mind much. Why? Because the silly leopard-skin coat that you are wearing is in very bad taste and because hitching a ride wearing it is probably not a route for success. I am, however, impressed much more by the b

      • Bang Bang - Kelly Willis
        29/01/16
        You have to be very careful when playing with guns, or at least that's what we think Kelly Willis is trying to get across in her song Bang Bang. It might be better, though, to provide a graphic illustration of just why guns are so dangerous, and the remix of the cover artwork does just this.

      • Wings Of A Dove - Madness
        28/01/16
        We would give Madness only around 5 out of 10 for the cover artwork of their single Wings Of A Dove. Why only 5? Well, for one, the band do not appear (lose 2 points). Second, it's not a real dove (lose 1 point). And thirdly, there's nothing mad about it (lose 2 points). The remix scor

      • Don't Make Me Wait - 911
        27/01/16
        You can tell that 911 have been hanging around for quite a long time on the original cover of their song Don't Make Me Wait, by the fact that they look totally bored and have long faces. Maybe if they put their shoes on and stopped messing about with guitars they might seem less tired. On the

      • Leaning On A Lamppost - George Formby
        26/01/16
        As we have said many a time at AllBum.Art, sometimes a remix is inspired by the name of a song, and sometime by a particular picture that we stumble across. In this case it was the picture that spawned the remix. After all, what other song would a babe leaning naked on a lamppost be suited to than

      • Show Me - Dana Dawson
        25/01/16
        What is it that Dana Dawson is referring to when she tells us to Show Me? She is clearly wishing us to show her something or other, but it's not clear what. Nor is she showing us anything much. On the remix we find a babe who seems very happy to show us, in this case to show us that she is ha

      • Run For Home - Lindisfarne
        24/01/16
        Now why would Lindisfarne Run For Home? The answer is that they wouldn't, it's their fans who do the running after having put up with several hours of their dreary music. On the original cover we can see the fans being bombarded by their terrible songs at a concert. On the remixed cover

      • Your Woman - White Town
        23/01/16
        Could there possibly be a cover for a single more boring and pointless than that for Your Woman by White Town? What do we learn from the original cover? Nothing, other than that someone in the band (or maybe a friend of theirs) thought that putting the title of the song and the name of the band in

      • Don't Stop - Fleetwood Mac
        22/01/16
        Yawn. Why Yawn? The cover of Don't Stop by Fleetwood Mac. A man dressed in strides and a girl all ballerina like. Please stop them immediately as they're dull. Yes, don't... stop! Like in the remix where some guy seems to think it's a good idea to undress a babe who is a bi

      • The Banana Song - G.S.P.
        21/01/16
        When G.S.P. sing The Banana Song, there's plenty of banana mayhem to be had, as the song is a remix of the title of the theme tune of the late 60's children's program the Banana Splits. The fact that Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper and Snork appear on the original cover artwork is not, there

      • Ballerina Girl - Lionel Richie
        20/01/16
        Another remix for the ever popular Lionel Richie as his songs make great subjects for remixing. On the original cover artwork for Ballerina Girl, we find Mr Richie relaxing in a matching periwinkle t-shirt and mauve jacket. Now maybe he is watching a ballerina girl, but she isn't on the cover

      • Glitterball - Simple Minds
        19/01/16
        When Simple Minds sing about a Glitterball, you might expect that there would be some indication of the glitterball on the cover of their single. But no, instead we find the band walking in front of a number of car garages which makes no real sense at all. Thankfully, us here at AllBum.Art have pr

      • Fly Me High - Linda Jo Rizzo
        18/01/16
        The second remix provided to us by Giuseppe from Taranto, for artist Linda Jo Rizzo. This is a remix that can apply both to her 1989 single and her 2015 album which are, apparently, both called Fly Me High. The original cover once again features Ms Rizzo, this time replete with many pearl necklace

      • Heartflash (Tonight) - Linda Jo Rizzo
        17/01/16
        We know nothing about Linda Jo Rizzo, but that is not true of Giuseppe who writes to us from Taranto, Italy with a couple of remixes of Ms Rizzo's songs. The first is for Heartflash (Tonight) in which we find Ms Rizzo looking very 1980s. In the remix, we find a mature looking vixen who is at

      • (Must You Always) Tease Me - Keith Kelly
        16/01/16
        (Must You Always) Tease Me? That is the question posed by Keith Kelly. Now on the cover of Mr Kelly's single, we see a happy yet intrigued looking Mr Kelly and the question is, what or who is doing the teasing (always). The remix turns the camera around 180 degrees so that we can see what or

      • Everything Is Average Nowadays
        15/01/16
        The Kaiser Chiefs are keen to tell us that Everything Is Average Nowadays. Their impression of this, at least so far as the cover of their single goes, is a plastic shopping bag. The remix presents something far more average: an average looking woman, of average age, average height, and average si

      • Get Lucky - Jermaine Stewart
        14/01/16
        Another sexy remix for Jermaine Stewart. Having told us that you don't have to take your clothes off (to have a good time), he is now telling us to Get Lucky. The original cover might be lucky if you're a retailer of studded leather jackets. The remix on the other hand shows a guy who h

      • Honky Cat - Elton John
        13/01/16
        It seems that cats make a good topic for remixes, and this remix of Honky Cat by Elton John is no exception to the rule. It is particularly worthy of a remix as the original cover has no cat on it at all. The remix shows a cat, or at least a babe dressed as a cat who is, as far as it goes, honky.

      • Black Cat - Janet Jackson
        12/01/16
        Another single that in theory scores full marks, as on the cover of Black Cat by Janet Jackson we find Ms Jackson posing with a black feline. So no point remixing this one then? Probably. But, as you might have guessed by now, we like naked babes rather than clothed ones, and so on the remix we h

      • Street Dreams - Nas
        11/01/16
        We think Nas was onto a good idea when he put together the cover for his single Street Dreams, though it's a little back to front. On the cover we find someone waving a dollar bill out of the window of a car to entice a young man. On the remix we find a similar situation, though one that has

      • Happy Together - The Turtles
        10/01/16
        The Turtles are apparently Happy Together and although there are one or two smiling faces on the cover of their single, it is not at all clear that everyone in the picture is happy to be together. The remix shows two babes who seem very happy to be together. Perhaps it is the fact that they are bo

      • (Somebody) Help Me Out - Beggar And Co
        09/01/16
        Now, when we at AllBum.Art are faced with helping someone out, our warped minds immediately think of helping someone out of their clothes. The original cover of (Somebody) Help Me Out by Beggar And Co does not reflect our view of assistance, but the remix does as we find one babe helping another ou

      • Rock The Casbah - The Clash
        08/01/16
        The Casbah, as any geographer will tell you, is the old quarters of a north African or Middle Eastern country. So when The Clash sing Rock The Casbah and compliment this with a single cover that shows two middle eastern gentlemen rocking to the beat, we are all good and full marks are scored for th

      • Cool For Cats - Squeeze
        07/01/16
        It's Cool For Cats, or at least it is according to Squeeze. The original cover of their single may have the two letter 'o's in the word 'cool' in the shape of cats' eyes but why is this so cool? On the remix we find a cool cat, in the form of a babe wearing cats'

      • Off The Wall - Wisdome
        06/01/16
        Chocka-chocka-pfft dumby-dumby-pow. Or something like that, is how Off The Wall by Wisdome sounds to our unattuned ears. The cover of this 2000 single also provides nothing by which to understand why or what is off the wall. The remix, helps, by showing is that what is off the wall is a babe who i

      • (Feels Like) Heaven - Fiction Factory
        05/01/16
        It's difficult to get a feeling from the cover artwork of a single, but it is easy to see what is going on. The original cover of (Feels Like) Heaven by Fiction Factory tells us nothing more than the fact that heaven is a cloudy old place. The remix allows us to sense more of what heaven migh

      • I Should Have Known Better - Jim Diamond
        04/01/16
        What is is that Jim Diamond is trying to tell us on the cover of his single I Should Have Known Better? The dark broody blue coloring maybe suggest he should have thought about buying a better light bulb. Thankfully the remix helps us to answer this question as we find a babe who appears to be loc

      • Be Cool - Paffendorf
        03/01/16
        Now Paffendorf might think that by making the cover of their single Be Cool different shades of blue, that it somehow means that it reflects the notion of coolness. That may be how they see being cool. We see being cool as having a pretty babe in a snow covered forest who is using some of that sno

      • Shiver - George Benson
        02/01/16
        Brrr... it's a cold January day, one of those that makes you Shiver, or so says George Benson. On the cover of his single, though, he looks distinctly warm in his grey suit and blue shirt. On the remix we find someone who is much much colder, and is shivering away on a cold January morning on

      • Queen Of The New Year - Deacon Blue
        01/01/16
        What better way to begin 2016 than with a remix of a song about the New Year. And so we bring you Queen Of The New Year by Deacon Blue. On the original cover we find some kind of gold plated artistic rendering of something or other. On the remix we find a princess who is on her way to a New Year
