      • The Devil Made Me Do It - Thunder
        28/02/17
        The Devil Made Me Do It. How often have we used that as an excuse? Plenty, perhaps. Thunder, it seems, have decided that this is the reason for their appallingly bad cover artwork. Blame it on the devil, why don't you. On the remix we find an ecumenical babe who has obviously succumb to the

      • Real Girl - Mutya Buena
        27/02/17
        Mutya Buena is a Real Girl, as far as we can tell. But the problem with the cover artwork of her single and album (of the same name) is that although we can see Ms Buena's face, whether the rest of her body proves that she is a real girl is not known. On the remix we find a babe who is 100% r

      • Ebony And Ivory - Paul McCartney And Stevie Wonder
        26/02/17
        You would think, would you not, that when two megastars such as Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder get together to make a song, they would also find a way to get together to make the single cover artwork. But on the cover of Ebony And Ivory, it is clear that the two were not in the same place when th

      • Silver Machine - Hawkwind
        25/02/17
        As you know, we here at AllBum.Art particularly like single artwork where the artists have made an effort to portray the name of the song on the cover. Hawkwind have singularly failed this task on the cover of their single Silver Machine. Not only is there no machine visible, but neither is there a

      • How Dare You - 10cc
        24/02/17
        Another remix for 10cc, this time for the artwork of their album How Dare You. On the original cover we find a businessman on the telephone to a female, possibly his wife, or mistress, or secretary. On the remix we find only the female who is fiercely proclaiming her dare, which appears to have be

      • Lorraine - Bad Manners
        23/02/17
        Lorraine (Lorraine, Lorraine) Lorraine, Lorraine... Is how the lyrics go in this 80s song from Bad Manners. On the original cover we find that Lorraine is somewhat less than real, and is sitting on a chair. On the remixed single artwork, we find that Lorraine has become much more realistic but sad

      • Good Girls Go Bad - Cobra Starship
        22/02/17
        We kind of half like the original single artwork for Good Girls Go Bad by Cobra Starship. The idea that some babe in green stiletto pumps would draw on the face of a snoozing guy who could, if he woke up, presumably look right up her skirt, is a nice one. Our remix just has a group of girls who ap

      • Final Exit - Fear Factory
        21/02/17
        The Final Exit is where Fear Factory are taking us. Their vision of this seems to be some symmetrical metal scorpion. Our vision of a final exit is rather different. Our exit is one which, after you go through it, there is no return. That must be why the babe who is about to go through it has decid

      • It's The End Of The World As We Know It - R.E.M.
        20/02/17
        Another remix for R.E.M.. According to the band, It's The End Of The World As We Know It, however the original single cover artwork does not help us depict the scene, unless the world ends with a lightning storm. On the remix we find a babe who is defending herself as the end of the world as

      • Nightlife - Kenickie
        19/02/17
        Another remix for Kenickie and this time for their single Nightlife. On the original single cover artwork we find that the band's idea of nightlife is a bed with silk sheets and a playboy pillow with a lava lamp sitting on an untidy bed-side set of drawers. This maybe the aftermath of some ni

      • The Captain - Biffy Clyro
        18/02/17
        It would appear, if the cover artwork for Biffy Clyro's single is to be believed, that the ship that The Captain is captaining, is some kind of airborne wooden affair. On the remix we instead find a picture of the captain herself, as yes, the captain is a babe not a dude, and one who seems to

      • Dreams - Gabrielle
        17/02/17
        Gabrielle tells us that she has Dreams, or so she sings, but the original cover artwork for her single tells us only that she has a rhinestone encrusted eye patch. Perhaps this is her dream. On the remix we find a guy alone in a hotel room with a half naked blonde babe with significant assets who

      • Imagination - Belouis Some
        16/02/17
        Imagination is what you have to use to interpret the single cover artwork by Belouis Some. The original cover shows Mr Some with a pensive look on his face. Does this suggest he is lost in his imagination? Perhaps that depends on what he is imagining. On the remix we find a mature babe who has h

      • All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You - Heart
        15/02/17
        Whilst everyone is still feeling loved-up following Valentine's Day yesterday, we have another hearty remix for you. The original cover of All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You by Heart , shows absolutely nothing at all. One of those 1980s single covers that offers nothing by way of an indicatio

      • Valentine - T'Pau
        14/02/17
        Today is February the 14th, known around the world as Valentine's Day. A day on which everyone gets a bit soppy, and everything is about hearts and flowers. So today's remix is Valentine by T'Pau. On the original cover artwork for the single we find the band members looking a bit s

      • Disco Shock - Various Artists
        13/02/17
        A rare remix of a compilation album by none other than Various Artists. The original cover artwork for Disco Shock has five babes with their backs to us, walking away into the distance. They are wearing a combination of jeans and hot pants and high heels, and one of them (second from the left) app

      • The Sign - Ace Of Base
        12/02/17
        Another remix for Swedish songsters Ace Of Base. The original single artwork for The Sign holds so many possibilities but none of them have been used, instead we just find a patchwork quilt of pieces of a flower and the band's two female singers. On the remix, one of the most obvious possibili

      • Green Door - Shakin' Stevens
        11/02/17
        Good ole Shakin' Stevens and his aimless cover artwork. On the original single cover for Green Door, we find Mr Stevens loafing around in a white jacket and black shirt. No sign of the green door though. On the remix we find a babe who is standing in a green doorway. Sadly we can't see

      • Cover Girl - New Kids On The Block
        10/02/17
        Another remix for New Kids On The Block as they stylize themselves. On the original cover artwork for Cover Girl, we find the band members looking royally bored in a small square. On the remix we find a cover girl who is covering herself (but not making that good of a job of it). But the boys are

      • Still Of The Night - Whitesnake
        09/02/17
        This is one of our favorite remixes for some time. Why? Well although the original single cover artwork for Still Of The Night by Whitesnake does appear to be set at night, with all that lightning, it doesn't appear very still. On the remix the situation is very changed and the scene present

      • Books From Boxes - Maximo Park
        08/02/17
        Another remix for Maximo Park. On the original single cover artwork of Books From Boxes, we find a man and a woman who appear to be whispering to each other. Maybe that is because they are in a library with books, but that is not evident from the grey background. On the remix we find a babe stand

      • A Forest - The Cure
        07/02/17
        We give almost full marks to The Cure for the original single cover artwork for A Forest, as it clearly illustrates a forest. So why, then, would we at AllBum.Art wish to remix it. Simply because we had this really great picture of a naked babe in a forest and we could think of no better single to

      • When The Tigers Broke Free - Pink Floyd
        06/02/17
        Another remix for Pink Floyd and this time it is of the original cover artwork of their single When The Tigers Broke Free. On the original cover we find someone screaming. Perhaps when the tigers broke free they caused such an uproar. On the remix we find a babe sitting on a tiger skin rug. After

      • In Your Car - Kenickie
        05/02/17
        What is In Your Car? More importantly what is in Kenickie's car? Quite obviously, from the original single cover artwork, what is in Kenickie's car is the band members themselves, though in cartoon format. And the car is toony too. On the remix we find what we would like to find in our

      • Nine Million Bicycles - Katie Melua
        04/02/17

        So there are Nine Million Bicycles (in China) according to Katie Melua. However we are meant to infer this by the fact, presumably, that on the original single cover artwork there is a photo of Ms Melua squatting down in an abandoned warehouse. Is the warehouse in China? Maybe. On the first

      • Walk Through The Fire - Peter Gabriel
        03/02/17
        Walk Through The Fire is what Peter Gabriel tells us to do in his single taken from the film Against All Odds. But on the original cover artwork all we can see is Mr Gabriel smiling. What is he smiling at? Maybe what's making him have such a grin on his face is what is shown on the remix, wh

      • Turn Your Car Around - Lee Ryan
        02/02/17
        Does the picture of Lee Ryan on the original front cover single artwork make you think that you need to Turn Your Car Around? Or does it make you think that he could have done a lot better with his cover design? We think the latter, and so the remix provides a proper excuse to reverse the directio

      • There's Nothing I Won't Do - JX
        01/02/17
        When JX sing that There's Nothing I Won't Do, you would be right to expect more from the original single cover artwork than a fuzzy picture of someone with their mouth wide open. You would expect to see a babe who would do just about anything, in fact a babe who would do absolutely anythi
