      • Never Never - The Assembly
        31/03/16
        Nothing screams 'never never' better than a half-finished letter A (or is is actually meant to be the Greek capital lambda Λ) in red with some of it in grey. At least that's what we are to believe if the original cover artwork for the single Never Never by The Assembly is to be beli

      • Books - Belle And Sebastian
        30/03/16
        Time for a rare album (as opposed to a single) remix from us here at AllBum.Art. The original cover of Books by Belle And Sebastian fails in so many ways that it really isn't of any value to count them. Instead, let's focus on the remix where we find a room full of books. Oh, and just t

      • Chains Of Love - Erasure
        29/03/16
        Today is the turn of Chains Of Love by Erasure for a remix. A question that immediately springs to mind when viewing the original cover is this... are there any chains depicted on the artwork? The answer is not clear. Is there, for example, a chain of pearls? To help clarify this, the remix pres

      • Going Down Town Tonight - Status Quo
        28/03/16
        Anyone would think we had planned this. First a connection from one song to the next by way of dreaming, and then a connection because it's the same band, Status Quo who are Going Down Town Tonight. But what do they expect to find there, themselves in concert? Because that's what the orig

      • Dreamin' - Status Quo
        27/03/16
        Whilst we are on the subject of dreaming, here's another remix by British rockers Status Quo called Dreamin'. On the original cover we see two of the band members, but they look more puzzled than dreamy. On the remix we find a dreamy girl who would be welcome in our dreams any day. In f

      • Dreamer - Livin Joy
        26/03/16

        A triple-play remix from Livin Joy and their Eurodance track Dreamer. The original cover artwork for their single may be dreamy, if ripples in a pool of blue water are your thing. The first remix is far more dreamy as we find a babe lying on her bed in mid dream. The final remix shows yet an

      • Not Such An Innocent Girl - Victoria Beckham
        25/03/16
        Who would have known that fashion designer Victoria Beckham, wife of erstwhile footballer David Beckham, had a solo pop career. Then again, she was part of the internationally renowned Spice Girls. Either way, the cover of her single Not Such An Innocent Girl tends to suggest that she is a little

      • Nights In White Satin - The Moody Blues
        24/03/16
        Those crazy Moody Blues and their Nights In White Satin. What a set of wacky dudes. So much so, that the cover of their single doesn't show any of them wearing white satin, nor does it show anyone else wearing it. The remix solves this as we find a babe lounging around on what looks like an

      • Mercury - Bloc Party
        23/03/16
        Some bands produce singles which are ripe for the picking when it comes to remixing and Bloc Party fall deeply into that category. Here we find their single Mercury, the original cover of which shows someone running a hand through someone's hair. It is not clear if they are one and the same p

      • Nutbush City Limits - Ike And Tina Turner
        22/03/16
        It can be a real pleasure when a picture and a song come together to make the perfect storm of a remix, and Nutbush City Limits by Ike And Tina Turner, is just such an example. The original cover shows Ms Turner resting on a car which, for some reason, has the registration 'Bolic'. She a

      • Only When I Lose Myself - Depeche Mode
        21/03/16
        You know those times when you buy a six-pack of chocolate and find that there's an extra bar in the bag, well today is one of those times. Why? Because this week-long remix of Depeche Mode covers is 8 days long, giving you a whole remix for free (not that you pay for them anyway). So here is

      • Personal Jesus - Depeche Mode
        20/03/16
        It's the end of our week-long Depeche Mode special and as it's a Sunday, we thought that a vaguely religious tone might be appropriate, and so we present Personal Jesus. The original cover alludes to the religiosity of this song through using bars of color in a cross shape. The remix does

      • Master And Servant - Depeche Mode
        19/03/16
        As if you hadn't guessed already, it's Depeche Mode week, and although we've gotten to the week-end, the remixes just keep on coming. The original cover of Master And Servant has the merest suggestion that in a master/servant relationship, some kind of chains may be necessary. The r

      • In Your Room - Depeche Mode
        18/03/16
        Our Depeche Mode remix week continues with In Your Room. The original cover may, or may not, have been taken in your room, or anyone else's room. The problem is that the lighbulb is obscuring any indication of what is in the room, or why you might be there. On the remix we are being invited

      • Barrel Of A Gun - Depeche Mode
        17/03/16
        Another remix in our week long Depeche Mode special in the name of Barrel Of A Gun. The original cover artwork seems a little confused and it is not clear whether there is a gun, or a barrel anywhere in the picture. In the remix, there is a gun, and it's barrel is pointing right at you. And

      • Walking In My Shoes - Depeche Mode
        16/03/16
        Another in our week of Depeche Mode remixes sees us Walking In My Shoes (not to be recommended unless we share the same shoe size). It may just be us, but the contraption on the original cover, the kind of half human, half parrot thing, doesn't even seem to be wearing any shoes. The remix see

      • Stripped - Depeche Mode
        15/03/16
        The second in our week-long Depeche Mode remix special is a remix for Stripped. The original artwork suggests that the stripping that is going in is removing layers of old wallpaper and paint and thus revealing the many unfashionable colors that lie underneath. The remix tells a different story as

      • See You - Depeche Mode
        14/03/16
        Today marks the start of a whole week of remixes of cover artwork for Depeche Mode. Our first remix of the week is for the single See You. On the original cover we find a smoking Joe leaning on a lamppost, looking longingly towards a girl who is looking back at him through the window of her house.

      • Goodbye - The Coral
        13/03/16
        'Yes', said in the kind of creepy slow way that is commonly used in the Simpsons to represent confusidity in the face of embiggened disunderstanding. What exactly The Coral were on when they produced the cover for their single Goodbye, is anyone's guess, though such guesswork is prob

      • She Blinded Me With Science - Thomas Dolby
        12/03/16
        It's interesting, in an uninteresting kind of way, to wonder how Thomas Dolby managed to write and record this song if, indeed, as he states in the title, She Blinded Me With Science. Surely if he had been blinded, as he states that he was, he would no longer be able to find the right keys on

      • Ain't Too Proud To Beg - The Temptations
        11/03/16
        Another remix for The Temptations. This time it's their 1966 single, Ain't Too Proud To Beg. The original cover is somewhat boring, where the word 'somewhat' should be replaced by the word 'totally', and the word 'boring' should be replaced by the word '

      • Don't Stop (Wiggle Wiggle) - The Outhere Brothers
        10/03/16
        The Outhere Brothers told us not to stop, but instead to gyrate in a somewhat relaxed yet floppy fashion in their song Don't Stop (Wiggle Wiggle). But the cover, other than showing a picture of a floppy face, gives no further instruction on how the wiggling should take place. The remix overcom

      • A Night To Remember - Shalamar
        09/03/16
        Get ready, tonight, we're gonna make this A Night To Remember. But what do Shalamar mean by that? The simple fact is that we don't know, as the cover of the single shows nothing more than the band members smiling. The remix shows why this will definitely be a noteworthy night, as a total

      • Look But Don't Touch - Skin
        08/03/16
        It's clear to see why Skin would suggest that you Look But Don't Touch the babe on the original cover of their single, as she will clearly punch you in the face if you do. It's, perhaps, less clear to see why the babe on the remix is someone you should avoid getting too close to, but

      • Juicy Fruit - Mtume
        07/03/16
        The original cover of Juicy Fruit by Mtume shows the band looking less than fruity, and certainly not particularly juicy. Thank goodness then for the remix in which we find a juicy looking babe bending over towards a bowl of fruit, which are most certainly fruity. Thinking about it, the babe is qu

      • Seventeen - Winger
        06/03/16
        We, here at AllBum.Art, pride ourselves on our ability to count. Malc, over in the 'sounds' department can count to over 30 and Chez in 'design' says he has to be able to count to nearly 400 to deal with the days in a year. But is seems that Winger cannot count to Seventeen, as

      • Autobahn - Kraftwerk
        05/03/16
        We have previously remixed the cover artwork for a Kraftwerk track here at AllBum.Art. But it is nice that we have been sent this user contributed submission of Autobahn from Wolfgang Schmeltz of Germany. He tells us:This babe who is named Vienna, is standing on a bridge over main motorway from Ma

      • Are You Ready To Fly - Rozalla
        04/03/16
        Are You Ready To Fly? Do you have your passport ready? Is your bag packed? Do you have your tickets in your pocket? These are important additional questions that Rozalla fails completely to address in her song. In the remix we find a babe who is explaining some of the finer points of airplane c

      • Walkin' Back To Happiness - Helen Shapiro
        03/03/16
        Helen Shapiro is Walkin' Back To Happiness, and she is doing so by staring out across a yellow-tinged cityscape. Not much walkin' going on, and no real sign of happiness. On the remix we find three babes who are doing some walkin'. They may look a little sad, but remember they are w

      • The Boys Are Back In Town - Thin Lizzy
        02/03/16
        Just occasionally, we feel it is right, that we at AllBum.Art do a remix designed for the fairer sex, or as we call it One For The Ladies. This time it is the turn of Thin Lizzy and their hit The Boys Are Back In Town. On the original cover we find the 'boys' (a.k.a. the band) digging tha

      • Move Your Ass - Scooter
        01/03/16
        Blowing a horn loudly in your ear is a sure-fire method of getting you to jump high in the air and Move Your Ass, which is what Scooter are asking us to do on the cover of their single. A picture of a horn is one thing, but what about a picture of the ass that has been moved, and its resting positi
