      • Rhinestone Cowboy - Glen Campbell
        28/02/14
        Following on from yesterday's all-American classic, we bring you another in the form of Rhinestone Cowboy by Glen Campbell. The original cover shows Mr Campbell wearing a cowboy outfit bedecked by rhinestones which is a big thumbs-up when it comes to covers reflecting the songs they are coveri

      • Jack & Diane - John Cougar
        27/02/14
        This little ditty about Jack And Diane was brought to us in the early 1980s by John Cougar also known as John Cougar Mellencamp. It was Mr Mellencamp's full name that gave the idea for the remix. So who were Jack and Diane? In the remixed cover we can see thatAll clear? Bounding!

      • It Takes Two - Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock
        26/02/14
        It Takes Two by Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock is one of those songs you either love or hate, there's very little grey area in-between. The original cover shows us Mr Base and Mr Rock in a typical hip-hop pose. In this respect, it is not a bad cover at all, satisfying the main criteria for a good

      • Boston Tea Party - Arthur Fiedler And The Boston Pops Orchestra
        25/02/14
        Don't ever say that we don't not bring you the worst of the best of the worst here at AllBum.Art. This isn't not the remix of the album Boston Tea Party that may (or may not) not have been by Arthur Fiedler And The Boston Pops Orchestra. Or it may just be a lame excuse to show a pict

      • Southern Freeez - Freeez
        24/02/14
        It's always nice to get a submission from a viewer of the AllBum.Art web-site, and this one is no exception. Southern Freeez by Freeez was apparently a British take on the sound of the evolving New York disco scene (or so says Davee Vartisle of Leicester, England). Dave says, "babes were

      • Oh, Pretty Woman - Roy Orbison
        23/02/14
        This song by Roy Orbison is less 'Oh, Pretty Woman' and more 'Ah, Pretty Woman' when the enlightenment of the remixed cover exposes the woman of whom Mr Orbison so idly moans. The original lyrics of this song included the line 'take a peek, on my cheek, that's a sneak,

      • Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes - Paul Simon
        22/02/14
        Every songwriter and performer has their weird period. None moreso that Paul Simon. This song, Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes, is taken from his Graceland album which counterpoints the metaphor juxtaposing the urban realism of the sound of contemporary pop music with the dark yet multicolored

      • Hole In My Shoe - Traffic
        21/02/14
        And all that I knew was a Hole In My Shoe, that was letting in water (repeat to fade). So now you know everything you ever needed to know about this 1960s song by Traffic. No? Let us help, because the original cover doesn't. The song is about a shoe, that someone is wearing. And there'

      • Jailhouse Rock - Elvis Presley
        20/02/14
        Well it's a one for the money, a two for the show, a three to get ready but hey just a cotton picking minute that's not the Elvis Presley song that's being remixed here. No, this is a remix of Jailhouse Rock, the original cover of which sees Mr Presley rocking nothing in particular.

      • Israelites - Desmond Dekker
        19/02/14
        Ooooh, ooooh, me ears are alight. Ain't that what Desmond Dekker was really singing about in his 1969 classic Israelite? Either way, the original cover gives no answers to this conundrum. And rather than try and fathom the mysteries of the deep, the remix just enhances and modernizes the ori

      • Get Lucky - Daft Punk Featuring Pharrell Williams
        18/02/14
        Today's remix comes from French electro-poppers Daft Punk with their recent hit Get Lucky. The original cover shows what must be the band, playing their instruments, silhouetted against a hot setting sun. What's lucky about that? In the remix we see a fat, ugly lorry driver who somehow

      • Hot Stuff - Donna Summer
        17/02/14
        Hot Stuff by Donna Summer continues our dancing divas theme but takes us back to the 1970s to the heyday of disco. All we have done to bring this classic up-to-date is change the picture. Instead of the (sadly now deceased) Ms Summer, we see a chick wearing what can only be described as 'hori

      • Watchin' - Freemasons Featuring Amanda Wilson
        16/02/14
        Watchin' by Freemasons Featuring Amanda Wilson continues our dance-off. The original cover starts to tell the tale of what or who is being watched, featuring, as it does, a keyhole through which it must be assumed that the watchin' is taking place. The problem is that what is being watch

      • Incredible - The Shapeshifters
        15/02/14
        Those dance hits just keep comin' as we burn up the decks with our funky remixes (you're right, we should stick to the cover remixes and leave the DJing to DJs). This is a remix of the 2006 single Incredible by The Shapeshifters. What's incredible about the original cover is it'

      • Up & Down - Scent
        14/02/14
        Following yesterday's remix of the dance track by Eric Prydz, we have been in a bit of a dancing mood at AllBum.Art. Today's remix is an obscure club track from Scent called Up & Down. The original cover is just boring beyond belief. The remix shows a hot chick sitting half-way up (

      • Pjanoo - Eric Prydz
        13/02/14
        The original cover for Eric Prydz 2008 single Pjanoo scores a couple of points on the AllBum.Art scoring system. Why? It features a piano, which is presumably what the title is inferring though it's not 100% clear, what with all that wacky Scandinavian spelling. The remix scores a couple of e

      • Killer Queen - Queen
        12/02/14
        The original cover of Killer Queen by British rock megaband Queen is, to put it mildly, lackluster. It just shows the band with floppy 1970s haircuts looking, if anything, bored. The remix shows exactly what it should, a devilishly dastardly queen whose looks could kill, let along her evil magic.

      • You'll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties - Jona Lewie
        11/02/14
        You'll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties by Jona Lewie is one of those songs that gets played at the kind of parties where it's best to be in the kitchen because the music choice is too sad to dance to. The original cover reflects this musical sadness. The remix, shows someone els

      • Stiletto Heels - Sailor
        10/02/14
        Perfection is hard, if not impossible to achieve. But this remix comes pretty close. The original cover for this 1976 song called Stiletto Heels by Sailor shows the band in a completely fictitious backdrop playing their instruments in front of a false frontage. There's nothing false about th

      • Hand On Your Heart - Kylie Minogue
        09/02/14
        Put your Hand On Your Heart, is the instruction we are given by Kylie Minogue in her 1989 single. But does Kylie demonstrate what this entails? No. She sits in some kind of mid-western barn-yard looking like a reject from a line-dancing party. Sadly, the remix doesn't completely resolve this

      • Stand And Deliver - Adam And The Ants
        08/02/14
        Just answer one simple question and we can be done. Who would you rather be held at gunpoint by and asked to 'Stand And Deliver' - Adam And The Ants or some sexy topless pirate girl? If your answer was a sexy topless pirate girl then you are in the right place, as that's exactly who

      • School's Out - Alice Cooper
        07/02/14
        Another triple-whammy of covers, this time the remix of Alice Cooper's 1972 classic School's Out (For Summer). The original cover shows a typical 1970s classroom desk. The first of our remixes shows a teacher in stockings and high heels for whom it is clearly summer and no school as she

      • Go Wild In The Country - Bow Wow Wow
        06/02/14
        Apparently the original cover for Go Wild In The Country by Bow Wow Wow caused some controversy at the time as the lead singer was too young to be posing naked in front of anyone, let alone on the cover of a single. Our remix does away with this controversial image and instead just shows four babes

      • Misfit - Curiosity Killed The Cat
        05/02/14
        "Why all the remixes of obscure tracks?" is a question we get asked a lot here at AllBum.Art. The answer is too complicated to give in full but in the case of this particular cover, it was purely the fact that one of the team found a photo of a sexy milf whose skirt and t-shirt were too sh

      • In The Midnight Hour - Wilson Pickett
        04/02/14
        A 1960s soul classic remix from Wilson Pickett. The original cover of In The Midnight Hour shows Mr Pickett singing into his microphone but no indication of where he is or how late in the day it it. The remix resolves this anomaly by using a wider view to show that Mr Pickett is standing in a stre

      • A Roller Skating Jam Named 'Saturdays' - De La Soul
        03/02/14
        A Roller Skating Jam Named 'Saturdays' is a rather odd title for a song but then De La Soul were never shy of oddness (or so it says here). The original cover shows artwork of the time (early 199s) with two people (one boy, one girl) holding hands with roller skates on. The remix shows t

      • Saturday Night Fever
        02/02/14
        Not strictly a remix of the cover of a song, but there is an album of the movie soundtrack for which this cover fits perfectly! We just couldn't bare to see Mr Travolta jiving away on the dance-floor with a woman who seems unable to fulfill even the basic feverish requirements. So we have giv

      • Moon River - Andy Williams
        01/02/14
        Following on the theme of songs with moon in the title, and thus an excuse to show 'buttocks exposed for fun', we bring you the classic Moon River as sung in 1961 by Andy Williams, oh yes. The original cover shows, well, shows Mr Williams much as you would expect. The remix is the ultimat
