      • Too Cold - Roots Manuva
        28/02/15
        As February draws to a close and the mercury begins to rise, we close the month with a chilly cover remix of Too Cold by Roots Manuva. On the original cover of the single, we see Mr Smith (easy to see why he chose a different stage name) being the subject of a police raid. On the remix, something

      • The Wall - Pink Floyd
        27/02/15
        All in all, you're just another brick in The Wall is the famous refrain from the title song from the album of much the same name by Pink Floyd. Now we can't knock the band for their choice of cover for their album, being, as it is, a wall. But we can improve it. Instead of the plain whi

      • She's So Lovely - Scouting For Girls
        26/02/15
        Half marks to Scouting For Girls on the original cover of their single She's So Lovely. Why only half marks? Because the song is from 2007 but the picture of the lovely girl (girls actually) on the cover could be taken from the 1870s. The remix fixes this temporal anomaly and replaces the gi

      • Stuck On You - Lionel Richie
        25/02/15
        Another remix for soulful songster Lionel Richie. Stuck on you tells the story of how Mr Richie is in some way glued to another person. The original cover suggests none of this, but instead makes out that what Mr Richie is really stuck on is a cowboy hat. The remix sees a babe that has got far to

      • My Camera Never Lies - Bucks Fizz
        25/02/15
        According to Bucks Fizz, whoever they are, My Camera Never Lies. It seems that, to demonstrate this, the band have dressed up in garb from the Victorian era and posed as if they were in front of an old box camera. Which is a lie, in that they are not from the Victorian era, nor was the picture tak

      • Driving In My Car - Madness
        24/02/15
        There is a simple points scheme here at AllBum.Art. If the cover of a single or album contains the band members (or solo artist) and relates to the title of the song, it scores full points. Thus the original cover for Driving In My Car by Madness scores very highly. There is therefore no need to

      • Do That To Me One More Time - Captain & Tennille
        23/02/15
        Another suggestion by Scott of Orlando, FL. This time it's Do That To Me One More Time by Captain & Tennille that comes under the spotlight. It's nice that on the original cover we can see the Captain and the Tennille but what is it that they want to be done to them again? On the re

      • Don't Stop - Status Quo
        22/02/15
        Back in November 2013 we had a whole week of remixes of covers of songs by Status Quo but as such prolific songwriters of twelve-bar blues based material, there's plenty more to have a go at. Don't Stop is both a single and an album by the band. On the remix we find out exactly why not s

      • Stuck In The Middle With You - Stealers Wheel
        21/02/15
        Stuck In The Middle With You... what images does this conjure up? Is it a bunch of 1970s band members such as those of the band Stealer's Wheel standing around looking, for the most part, bored (the guy on the right is even yawning). Or does it throw up images of a sexy cougar stuck between t

      • Dance (Disco Heat) - Sylvester
        20/02/15
        It seems that in the height of the disco era in the 1970s, there were many sexy covers for singles produced. Dance (Disco Heat) by Sylvester does not capture the spirit of this era very well, which is why we, the good folk at AllBum.Art, are here to remix it for you. The remix shows a babe who is

      • Pregnant For The Last Time - Morrissey
        19/02/15
        The second in the two-day series of remixes of Morrissey single covers. Today's remix is for the song Pregnant For The Last Time. Let's skip the original cover and focus on the remix where we see a clearly pregnant babe who is, shall we say, not the best looking babe on the planet. Woul

      • You're The One For Me Fatty - Morrissey
        18/02/15
        A mini two-day series of remixes of the covers of singles by the former lead singer of the Smiths, Morrissey. The cover for his song entitled You're The One For Me Fatty shows Mr Morrissey himself but not why the particular fatty of whom he sings is the right one for him. On the remix we see

      • Down In The Subway - Soft Cell
        17/02/15
        What on this planet (or any other) were Soft Cell thinking with the original cover of their 1984 song Down In The Subway? Down in the highly confused jumble of a two-year old's map of some kind of underground kingdom perhaps. But a subway looking like that is one that we, at AllBum.Art are no

      • Hitchin' A Ride - Sinitta
        16/02/15
        Continuing the theme of hitch hikin' we find songstress Sinitta (rumored to be a lover of X-Factor millionaire Simon Cowell) singing about Hitchin' A Ride. On the original cover we see Ms Malone looking none too happy about being so down and low that she needs to borrow a ride from someon

      • Hitch Hike - Marvin Gaye
        15/02/15
        Now where were we before we were rudely interrupted by Valentine's Day? Ah, yes, just about to launch a short series of remixes of songs about hitch hiking. Today it's turn of soul legend Marvin Gaye to sing about a Hitch Hike. On the original cover we see Mr Gaye looking ebullient (is

      • Secret Lovers - Atlantic Starr
        14/02/15
        It's Valentine's Day so to put you in the mood, here is a romantic song about the kind of naughtiness that goes on at this time of year. Atlantic Starr sing about their Secret Lover, someone who they shouldn't be with. Maybe they sent them a Valentine's Card. Maybe they didn&#

      • Ridin' Thumb - Seals And Crofts
        13/02/15
        Seals And Crofts sang about Ridin' Thumb, also known, to you and me, as hitch-hiking. Sadly on the cover of their single, there is no evidence of any thumb-related activity, nor, it has to be said, is there any evidence of Mr Seals or Mr Crofts - so a total fail as cover artwork goes. This ha

      • Down In The Tube Station At Midnight - The Jam
        12/02/15
        Naked babes in public places seems to be the order of the day and though we're done with streets, there are other places of a public nature where nude babes hang out. Today it's Down In The Tube Station At Midnight, according to The Jam. Apparently 'the tube' is the name for th

      • Walking In Memphis - Marc Cohn
        11/02/15
        We get the feeling that you're enjoying our series of remixed cover artwork that involves babes walking or standing naked on a street and today's remix will not disappoint. On the original cover of Walking In Memphis by Marc Cohn, we see Mr Cohn. But as usual, there's no evidence of

      • International Bright Young Thing - Jesus Jones
        10/02/15
        We are on a roll with our remixes of artwork that involve babes standing on a street. Today's song may not sound like it would deserve such a remix but to us, when Jesus Jones sings about an International Bright Young Thing, we immediately think of a jet-setting babe standing with her suitcase

      • Walking Down Your Street - The Bangles
        09/02/15
        Another song about your street, this time from girl group The Bangles and their hit Walking Down Your Street. The original cover shows the four band members but they are not walking and not on any street, let alone yours. The remix sees just the one babe, but she is walking and she is on the stree

      • Streets Of Your Town - The Go-Betweens
        08/02/15
        On the original cover of Streets Of Your Town by Australian artist The Go-Betweens, we find a man and what looks like his wife and child. He is holding up a bottle of what looks like milk, and his wife is carrying a picnic basket. This might be a typical street scene in Australia but it looks noth

      • Tie A Yellow Ribbon (Round The Ole Oak Tree) - Dawn Featuring Tony Orlando
        07/02/15
        Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Ole Oak Tree.
        It's been 3 long years,
        Do you still want me?
        Is what the words of this famous song by Dawn Featuring Tony Orlando state. If no yellow ribbons are tied around the tree, the guy will stay on the bus and forget about us. So here we find

      • When You're In Love With A Beautiful Woman - Dr Hook
        06/02/15
        When You're In Love With A Beautiful Woman, it gets hard. That's what Dr Hook told us back in 1979. They do not indicate what gets hard, though it does not take much imagination to work out what they might have meant. The original cover sees the band standing around looking at something

      • Lead The Way - T-Ara
        05/02/15
        An odd one this. T-Ara (pronounced like a tiara) are a Japanese J-Pop girl band. On the cover of their song Lead The Way (LA'booN) we see the six band members standing around looking pretty. Not much to beat that. Except the remix which shows five similar looking girls (though not the same gi

      • Grand Piano - Nicki Minaj
        04/02/15
        Not strictly a single, but a track from Nicki Minaj's album The Pink Print, Grand Piano is a laid back track not reminiscent of her usual upbeat stuff. As it's an album track, there is no original cover but we very much liked this one produced by Creat1ve. The remix adds a dash of color

      • Laid - James
        03/02/15
        Another idea for a remix sent in by Scott of Orlando, FL. This time, Scott says, 'I wonder what you'll make of Laid by James'. The original cover shows the members of the band, standing around in some very floral get-ups, verging on the transvestite. So what have we made on the rem

      • You Caught My Eye - Judy Boucher
        02/02/15
        In a way, it's nice that You Caught My Eye, says Judy Boucher. Because if you hadn't then the cover of the single would have forever remained very un-eye-catching. The original cover shows Ms Boucher as she would look drawn by chalk and charcoal by an imbecile. In the remix we see a bab

      • Country Life - Roxy Music
        01/02/15

        Whoa! Something very special to get February off to a happy start. Four remixes of the cover of Country Life by Roxy Music. The original is the one on the top left and shows two babes: one in see-through white lingerie and the other in black panties but no bra, trying to cover their decency w
