      • Sand In My Shoes - Dido
        31/05/17
        So Dido says she has Sand In My Shoes does she? Well the original single cover artwork doesn't give us any indication of this. First of all, there's no evidence that she is anywhere near any sand. Secondly, if she had got sand in her shoes, you would think this to be marginally uncomfor

      • Devil In Your Shoes (Walking All Over) - Shed 7
        30/05/17
        There's a Devil In Your Shoes (and she's Walking All Over) or at least there is if Shed 7 are to be believed. And we have to take their word for it because on the original single cover artwork we find nothing to indicate who this devil is, or indeed what shoes she might be wearing. On th

      • How High - The Charlatans
        29/05/17
        Just How High? That is the question that The Charlatans are asking. Now it is feasible that the picture on the original single cover artwork which shows some guy wearing a backpack was taken whilst he was at the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, and thus he could be deemed to be very high, but it is so

      • Feel So High - Desree
        28/05/17
        Desree tells us that she Feels So High. This may be true, she is clearly in a good mood as she is smiling, but how high is 'so' high? We felt the need to find out and so on the remix we got three babes to wear very high heel boots. This wasn't enough though so we asked one of the b

      • Starships - Nicki Minaj
        27/05/17
        Our third remix for Nicki Minaj has us considering her single Starships. On the original single cover artwork we find Ms Minaj looking very pink and purple, but unless she is standing in some sleek starship whose internals are all painted in pure white, we are not convinced that she is in any kind

      • In My Arms - Mylo
        26/05/17
        The original single cover artwork for In My Arms by Mylo shows a boy and a girl kissing and arguably passes the test for actually depicting the nature of the song on the cover as the boy has the girl's arms around his neck. The remix, therefore, doesn't really add anything except that the

      • A Lover's Holiday - Change
        25/05/17
        What does A Lover's Holiday look like? Well, according to the original single artwork from Change, it looks like a series of circles and triangles in black, orange and yellow. Obviously! However we think that the simple addition of a babe who has packed her suitcase and is ready to head on h

      • Automatic - Pointer Sisters
        24/05/17
        Automatic by The Pointer Sisters is the subject of today's AllBum.Art artwork remix. The original cover shows the three band members but what is it about them that could be said to be automatic? The banality of their effort? On the remix we find a babe sitting in a car ready to drive it. Is

      • See Emily Play - Pink Floyd
        23/05/17
        When Pink Floyd invite us to See Emily Play, we expect a little more from their single cover artwork than a mixed-up, messed-up picture of a few of the band members. We expect to see Emily, and we expect to see her playing. Thank goodness, then, that we at AllBum.Art have managed to rectify this s

      • I'll See It Through - Texas
        22/05/17
        For some reason, we had always thought that Texas were a band from Texas, but apparently they are from Scotland. Anyway the original single cover artwork for I'll See It Through we find the lead singer running her hands through her hair. On the remix we find a different babe also running her

      • Look Through Any Window - The Hollies
        21/05/17
        Look Through Any Window and what will you find? According to The Hollies it would be the band standing in front of a red wall, staring back at you. That may be nice but we think there are even nicer things that can be found to stare at through some windows and in the remix we find a babe resting h

      • One Cool Remove - Shawn Colvin With Mary Chaplin Carpenter
        20/05/17
        One Cool Remove is what Shawn Colvin sings about with the help of Mary Chaplin Carpenter, which is nice of them. But what on Earth is a one cool remove? The original single cover artwork gives us no idea whatsoever other than showing a badly squashed photo of the two of them singing. On the remix

      • Do You Love What You Feel - Inner City
        19/05/17
        Inner City look like they are enjoying themselves on the original front cover artwork for their single Do You Love What You Feel. The odd thing is that it is not clear what it is that they are feeling that they are loving. On the remix we find two babes feeling inside some guy's swimming shor

      • Big Fun - Inner City
        18/05/17
        Big Fun is what Inner City claim to be having. But the original front cover artwork for their single doesn't really indicate what kind of fun this is and why it is so big. Instead it just offers us a skyline, possibly of Detroit, MI, their home town. On the remix we find two babes having a l

      • Beauty On A Back Street - Hall & Oates
        17/05/17
        Another remix for that intrepid duo, Hall & Oates. This time it is the turn of their 1977 album Beauty On A Back Street to get remixed. The original album front cover artwork shows Mr Hall and Mr Oates looking somewhat furtive on a dinghy back street somewhere. Certainly there is no beauty in

      • Shape Of My Heart - Backstreet Boys
        16/05/17
        We are very disappointed by the Backstreet Boys. The original single cover artwork is so boring and uninventive that they were either on a cost-cutting mission, or were just very pressed for time when they put it together. We have tried to help them improve this (for free too!) and on the remix we

      • Shame Shame Shame - Shirley And Company
        15/05/17
        It would seem that on the original single front cover artwork for Shame Shame Shame by Shirley And Company, the intention was to shame President Richard Nixon, which it seems that Shirley is pointing to. Indeed, shame on him. On the remix we find three babes who are all looking rather ashamed at h

      • Just The Way You Are - Milky
        14/05/17
        Apparently Milky likes us Just The Way You Are. Which is odd, because on the original single front cover artwork, we find a babe (presumably Milky) standing on a country road with her hands above her head. Is that her way of expressing that she likes us just the way we are? On the remix we find a

      • Wiggle It - 2 In A Room
        13/05/17
        Wiggle It (just a little bit) were the instructions that 2 In A Room gave us in 1991. Unfortunately, the original single front cover artwork doesn't show us how this wiggling should take place, nor who the two people in the room are, or should be. The remix helps a lot with this as we find two

      • Family Man - Mike Oldfield
        12/05/17
        Leave me alone, I'm a Family Man, is what Mike Oldfield in this 1980s song. We give him some credit that on the original single front cover artwork, there is a woman dressed in red trying to tempt the family man with her wily charms. On the remix little has changed except that the woman in re

      • Show Me Love - Robin S
        11/05/17
        It is such a shame that when Robin S was thinking about the original single front cover artwork for Show Me Love, that all she could come up with to advertise her song were a few roses. Now it is fair to say that there are those who associated roses with love, but it doesn't really show the lo

      • How Did You Know - Kurtis Mantronik Presents Chamonix
        10/05/17
        How Did You Know is the question being posed by Kurtis Mantronik Presents Chamonix. The original single cover artwork doesn't really assist in any way with answering this question. On the remix, however, we find a babe standing around in her pajamas but wait a minute, what is that she is look

      • So Amazing - Luther Vandross
        09/05/17
        A second remix in a row for Luther Vandross and this time it is the single artwork for So Amazing that we are examining. On the original artwork we find a drawing of Mr Vandross once again with one of his trademark cheeky smiles on his face. On the remix we find another trademark remix as there is

      • Never Too Much - Luther Vandross
        08/05/17
        Luther Vandross sings to us that it is Never Too Much. Now from the original single cover artwork it would seem that whatever it is that is never too much is making Mr Vandross smile in a rather cheeky fashion. On the remix we find out why, as the thing that there is never too much of is the buxom

      • Change - Lisa Stansfield
        07/05/17
        Nothing illustrates a song with the title of Change more accurately than having the singer, in this case Lisa Stansfield squatting on the roof of a building. Well, when we say nothing, we obviously mean that what would be better would be to have a babe who is changing her clothes which is what you

      • Rescue Me - Skepta
        06/05/17
        If you look closely enough, you will see that on the original single front cover artwork for Rescue Me by Skepta, Mr Adenuga (for that is his name) is wearing a straight-jacket, so it is quite feasible that he needs rescuing, though if someone has decided to tie him up in that way, perhaps no rescue

      • I'm Not Shy - Frank
        05/05/17
        Where do we begin with the original front cover artwork for I'm Not Shy by Frank? For starters, none of the girls pictured appear very shy, so not only is there no sign of shyness, but it is not clear which, if any, of the girls would be making such a bold statement. On the remix we find just

      • Lucky Day - Nicola Roberts
        04/05/17
        Nicola Roberts tells us that it is our Lucky Day on the single and album of the same name. On the original cover artwork we find Mr Roberts slouching on top of some laundry machines. Maybe it is our lucky day because she is doing our washing for us? On the remix we find a business man who has tur

      • Natural Thing - Innocence
        03/05/17
        What is the Natural Thing that adorns the original cover artwork of the single from Innocence? It appears to be some kind of wave overlaid onto the visage of the lead singer. Nice but not that natural a thing. On the remix we find an innocent looking babe who is amidst a natural forest setting.

      • Chantilly Lace - The Big Bopper
        02/05/17
        Another triple-play brought to you by us good folk at AllBum.Art. Today it is the turn of The Big Bopper and his single Chantilly Lace. Though Mr Bopper might think that what makes good front cover artwork for his single, the original cover just shows him on the phone to a babe who may or may not

      • May The Sunshine - Nazareth
        01/05/17
        It's May, so time for a song with the word May in the title. And what better than May The Sunshine by Nazareth? On the original single cover artwork, we find some kind of skull with wings, which fails on so many fronts. Where is the sunshine, for example? The remix fixes this problem as we
