      • Atomic - Blondie
        25/03/13
        This cover art remix comes all the way from Russia! The cover of Blondie's 1979 single Atomic shows Ms Harry standing in front of a mushroom cloud in a blue dress (surely made of some complex metal compound to save her from the radiation). The remix shows a topless Russian blonde girl in front

      • 9 To 5 - Dolly Parton
        24/03/13
        In 1980 when this single was released, the idea of a woman working 9 To 5 was almost unheard of. The cover shows Dolly Parton together with her tools and in a workman's clothes. This iconic song from the movie of the same name has been brought up to date. Ms Parton has been replaced by a dif

      • Trapped - Colonel Abrams
        23/03/13
        Trapped by Colonel Abrams is one of those songs that is trapped on the playlist of many radio stations across the nation despite approaching its 30th birthday. The time is right for a remix of the cover art. On the original cover we see Col Abrams trapped in some kind of florescent tubing. On the

      • Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) - C+C Music Factory
        22/03/13
        Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) was a 1990 hit for Clivill├ęs and Cole (shortened to C+C Music Factory). In the cover of the single we see one of the aformentioned gentlemen standing in front of someone who is dancing now. But she is not sweating, or at least if she is sweating, we cann

      • Everything About You - Ugly Kid Joe
        21/03/13
        In 1992, Ugly Kid Joe told us that they hated Everything About You ('you' referring to some girl or other). But the cover of their single doesn't show us the girl in question so we can't make up our mind whether we hate her or not. What is it about the particular girl that makes

      • What's Up? - 4 Non Blondes
        20/03/13
        And I say, "Whaaay hey hey hey hey, whaay hey hey. I say whaaay, what's goin' on". Such deep and meaningful lyrics from this 1993 song by 4 Non Blondes. They pose the question "What's Up?" Isn't it clear what's up? The single cover is boring, that

      • Devil Inside - INXS
        14/03/13
        This submission from Troy Shakespeare of Australia shows just how far AllBum.Art has reached. The cover of Devil Inside by Aussie rockers INXS is meritorious in itself in that it reflects the name of the song in the picture. We like Troy's remixed cover better though, as it adds to the origin

      • Long Train Runnin' - The Doobie Brothers
        13/03/13
        What flashes through your mind when you hear the strains of this 1970 song from The Doobie Brothers? Is it a load of hairy rockers leaning around on some trees? If it is - you're in luck because that's what the original cover of Long Train Runnin' shows. If, on the other hand, you

      • Born To Run - Bruce Springsteen
        12/03/13
        Every good mid-West girl sings along with Born To Run by Bruce Springsteen. Don't ask why, they just do. This is the remix of the album cover of the same name. Mr Springsteen's picture has been replaced by one of those very mid-West girls who sings along who is very clearly born to run

      • Come Fly With Me - Frank Sinatra
        11/03/13
        Come Fly With Me by Frank Sinatra is one of those old-time classics that you don't mess with. Unless you're AllBum.Art that is! Mr Sinatra has been replaced by a girl posing as an aeroplane standing on what looks like a disused runway (you can tell because there are planes in the backgro

      • Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars - Fatboy Slim
        10/03/13
        An album for a change. This time the rather longly titled Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars by Fatboy Slim. On the original cover we see a tantalizing glimpse of what might be a naked chick but is too 'extreme close-up' to tell. Let's back that camera right up and see what w

      • Winter - DT8 Project Featuring Amanda Britton
        09/03/13
        A person only calling themselves 'TranceHed 3' sent this in. Apparently Winter was a chart topping trance track in 2004 from DT8 Featuring Amanda Britton. It's a good job that TranceHed 3 sent us a link to the video on YouTube (click 'related link' below) otherwise it look

      • I See You Baby - Groove Armada (Featuring Gram'ma Funk)
        08/03/13
        What's the one thing you don't see on this 1999 Groove Armada cover? A penguin? Nice try, and in a sense that's correct as there isn't a penguin on the cover. But think about the song. It says, "I see you baby, shakin' that ass". And where's the ass? In t

      • We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off - Jermaine Stewart
        07/03/13
        According to this 1986 single from Jermaine Stewart, We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off, to have a good time, on no. We hear you brother! Don't take them all off, leave a good helping of sexy lingerie, bra, panties, high heels on. The rest can go in the trash can for all we care. As

      • Sex On Fire - Kings Of Leon
        06/03/13
        What would Sex On Fire look like, that's the question? Well certainly nothing like this 2008 cover that the Kings Of Leon put together. WTF is that anyway? Some kind of artistic shot of a rooster's red wobbly bit (the 'comb' for the more anatomically aware)? The remix has a hot

      • Can't Fight This Feeling - REO Speedwagon
        05/03/13
        The cover from REO Speedwagon (what the hell is one of those?) from their 1980s power ballad Can't Fight This Feeling (Any More) is enough to make you give up. What's worth fighting over, some red, green and a few splodges. Now the revised cover is worth fighting for, but it looks like y

      • Singing In The Rain - Sheila & B. Devotion
        04/03/13
        After the success that was Spacer also by Sheila & B. Devotion comes this cover remix of their 1978 single Singing In The Rain, whose origins are fairly obvious. The original cover shows a 70s style girl with an umbrella against the backdrop of a Paris street scene. So does the remixed one, on

      • Addicted To Love - Robert Palmer
        03/03/13
        Might as well face it, you're addicted to love. Well you were if you saw the original 1980s video for Robert Palmers song Addicted To Love. It had lots of hot babes in the same outfits, rockin' away in the background. The cover shows one of them. And the remix is a 'before and afte

      • Born To Be Wild - Steppenwolf
        02/03/13
        Even today the phrase, "Get your motor running" is well known. Few realize that this 1968 song from rock band Steppenwolf is where it comes from. That's probably because the cover is awful. The more important question is, does the girl on the remixed cover look like she was Born To

      • Red Dress - Sugababes
        01/03/13
        Another cover from those British 'birds' the Sugababes with their 2005 single Red Dress. In the remixed version we see the Sugababes replaced by a girl in a red dress. Now isn't that a surprise? The fact that the dress is very skimpy and she also has stripper heels (also in red) ju
