      • (Let's Get) Physical - Olivia Newton-John
        30/06/13
        At the time of it's release, Olivia Newton-John's single and video for the song (Let's Get) Physical was seen as pretty edgy. Some radio stations even banned it. Of course today, it is pretty tame. So we've edged it up a little and replaced the picture of the tame Ms Newton-Joh

      • Sweet Hitch-Hiker - Creedence Clearwater Revival
        29/06/13
        Maybe it was the thing to do in the 1970s, put a picture of the hairy faced band on the cover of the single. Clearly for Creedence Clearwater Revival, this is exactly what they had in mind for the cover of their single Sweet Hitch-Hiker. What an opportunity they missed though. So we have revived

      • Can I Kick It - A Tribe Called Quest
        28/06/13
        Who could forget the classic retort to Can I Kick It? Yes, you can! The thing is, if such a thing can be called a thing, that the cover from A Tribe Called Quest's single fails to address even the most basic requirements for a cover. It does not show the band, nor does it cast any light on w

      • Love Is In The Air - Milk And Sugar Versus John Paul Young
        27/06/13
        Love Is In The Air was originally a hit for John Paul Young in the 1970s. This remixed cover is, appropriately, for the remixed version released by dance act Milk And Sugar in 2001. The original cover is very clearly missing something. The three guys are staring into space looking for the love in

      • Captain Of Your Ship - Reparata And The Delrons
        26/06/13
        An entry from Darren Cleethorpe from Hull in England. He says that this song was used as the theme tune to the ferry timetables on his local radio station 'Radio Humberside'. Reparata And The Delrons are apparently a US group but who enjoyed bigger success in good ole' England than

      • On A Rope - Rocket From The Crypt
        25/06/13
        On A Rope, right, that's what this obscure 1996 punk song from Rocket From The Crypt is supposed to be about. If that's the case, then why does the cover of the single show some kind of freaky Indonesian dog puppet silhouette? Know? Us neither. So we remixed it and put, guess what? A h

      • Hey, Soul Sister - Train
        24/06/13
        The cover for Train's 2009 hit Hey, Soul Sister is one of the most dull covers that we at AllBum.Art have ever zzz..... Sorry, dropped off there. Good job the cover has had a remix which both awakens the senses and shows us the soul sister that Train are singing about. Apparently it's on

      • Light My Fire - The Doors
        23/06/13
        Come On Baby, Light My Fire is what The Doors told us to do in 1966. Due to today's health and safety legislation such a call to action would no longer be permitted and the song would have had to have been called Put My Fire Out. The cover needs to reflect these changes in society and so inst

      • Throw Your Set In The Air - Cypress Hill
        22/06/13
        Throw Your Set In The Air is a 1995 single from Cypress Hill. Nothing ground-breaking there. But what does it actually mean? What is a 'set' and why is it being thrown into the air? Who is throwing the 'set'? Nothing on the original cover of the single answers these questions

      • Fallen Angel - Elbow
        21/06/13
        Are we gettin' a bit obscure on you? There's good reason though. Fallen Angel is a song by obscure British band Elbow. It charted at number 844 and rose stratospherically to reach number 841 in the English Hot 100. Yeah! Why is it here, just because the remix couldn't have a bett

      • Sitting Down Here - Lene Marlin
        20/06/13
        I'm Sitting Down Here so hey you can't see me. That's what Lene Marlin tells us is the case in her 1999 single. If that's the case, then no need to wear any clothes because no one is going to see you. But not Lene, no, she is (apparently) Norwegian where wearing no clothes is l

      • The Day We Caught The Train - Ocean Colour Scene
        19/06/13
        What would you expect to see on the cover of a single called The Day We Caught The Train. Well according to the artist Ocean Color Scene, you would expect to see the back of some Italian scooter. WTF! Where's the train that was caught and what was special about that day in particular? The r

      • Picking Up The Pieces - Paloma Faith
        18/06/13
        Did Paloma Faith really sing Picking Up The Pieces. If that's the case then D'Oh as a certain yellow bald-headed cartoon character would say. We here at AllBum.Art could have sworn she said Picking Up The Panties. That's why the remix of this 2012 single has had Ms Faith replaced b

      • What's In The Box (See Whatcha Got) - The Boo Radleys
        17/06/13
        When you find a picture of a totally hot naked babe posing on a box there's only one thing to do... find a single cover that needs a good remix. Why? What were you thinking? The problem is that there aren't too many songs that fit and so this very obscure 1990s single from The Boo Radley

      • Kiss The Bride - Elton John
        09/06/13
        Like we often say, sometimes a photo is just too good to waste. The bride in the remixed cover is soooo hot that there had to be a single cover that needed her. And that cover is this 1983 song by Elton John called Kiss The Bride. That has no f**king bride on it. What is Mr John up to? Oh, hang

      • Car Wash - Rose Royce
        08/06/13
        The original cover of Rose Royce's 1976 disco classic Car Wash is, to put it simply, garbage. It shows what? The word 'car wash' that's been extended into 3D by some fourth grade design student and the words 'Rose Royce'. Time for a remix to show what it's reall

      • Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel - Tavares
        07/06/13
        Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel. Is that so? If it is, then why isn't the cover of this 1970s disco classic from Tavares providing any indication of who, what or where she might be. Thankfully, we have found her and restored the cover of the single to its full glory. And glory, glory, halle

      • I Want To Hold Your Hand - The Beatles
        06/06/13
        And please say to me, you'll let me hold your hand - I Want To Hold Your Hand, this 1963 single from The Beatles proclaims. But the cover leaves many questions unanswered. Who is it that wants to do the hand holding, the whole band or just one of them? And whose hand is it they want to hold?

      • Just Mozian Along - Roger King Mozian And His Orchestra
        05/06/13
        An album so obscure that even the artist Roger King Mozian doesn't have an entry on Wikipedia, Just Mozian Along caught the attention of the AllBum.Art team because of the hapless Mr Mozian sitting on a horse. Why was this of interest? Simply because of the picture of the naked babe on a horse

      • Rip It Up - Bill Hailey
        04/06/13
        Steppin' back in time, jive bunnies, to the rolling, rocking 1950s and this single from Bill Haley and his Comets. The original cover of Rip It Up shows the head of Big Bad Bill, but no evidence of any kind of rippin' going on. The remix remedies this with a hot chic whose clothes have b

      • Itsy Witsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini - Ron Smith
        03/06/13
        Perhaps not the most well-known version of the song Itsy Witsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, but this one from Ron Smith has a cover that desperately needs a remix. And what a remix. The bikini on the babe on the new cover is so itsy bitsy and teenie weenie that all the polka dots have be
