      • When You Walk In The Room - The Searchers
        30/06/16
        What happens When You Walk In The Room? According to The Searchers original single cover artwork, it is that everything turns a shade of cyan. Really? Is that the most likely thing to happen? On the remix we see what happens when a babe walks into the room, the jaw of the guy looking at her drops

      • Maggie's Farm - Bob Dylan
        29/06/16
        Bob, Bob, Bob... If you are going to sing about Maggie's Farm, at least show us on the original artwork, some idea of what Maggie looks like and what she does on her farm. Sadly it seems that Bob Dylan was more concerned with putting his own face on the front cover of his single. On the remix,

      • Everyone's Gone To The Moon - Johnathan King
        28/06/16
        Everyone's Gone To The Moon, is what Johnathan King thought. This is perhaps because they were all terribly bored with his original single cover artwork which, though futuristic for the 1960s, does not provide us with any motivation to go to the Moon. On the remix we find a babe who seems to

      • Making Up Again - Goldie
        27/06/16
        Will you look at that now? Goldie are telling us that they are Making Up Again. Does that mean that they have fallen out with each other? If their sullen faces on the original single cover artwork are anything to go by, that may well be the truth. On the remix we find a babe who is having her ma

      • White Ladder - David Gray
        26/06/16
        Is that a White Ladder showing on the original album cover artwork by David Gray? It looks more like a pink line sloping at an angle that a ladder would not normally make without falling over. It probably is a pink line after all, not a white ladder. So thankfully the remix is more clear on this

      • Bare Stripped Naked - Bettie Serveert
        25/06/16
        Three words that are commonly used here at AllBum.Art, Bare Stripped Naked but this time altogether in a single album title by Bettie Serveert. Whether Ms Serveert is any of the aforementioned adjectives is unclear from orange-tinted cover of her album. On the remix we find a babe who is all of th

      • Sitting At Home - Honeycrack
        24/06/16
        An odd one for us here at AllBum.Art as we remix some original single artwork and make it less off-the-wall. The cover for Sitting At Home by Honeycrack shows the two band members sitting around at home, which scores nearly 100% as it accurately reflects the song and the band. Why they are sittin

      • Wild Wood - Paul Weller
        23/06/16
        Wild Wood is both an album and a single for Paul Weller. Here we focus on the remix of the artwork for his 1999 album. On the original cover we find the silhouette of Mr Weller against a backdrop of some greenery which could, potentially be a wild wood, but it's not definite. On the remix we

      • Ladies Night - Kool And The Gang
        22/06/16
        Nothing says 'party' better than Ladies Night by Kool And The Gang. But what kind of party is it? The original single cover artwork suggests that the party consists of three girls wearing catsuits standing around on some stairs pouting. The remix shows a similar party scene but now four

      • Let Her Go - Passenger
        21/06/16
        Not just a fabled AllBum.Art triple-play, but one of our rare X-Rated remixes. On the original single cover artwork for Let Her Go by Passenger, we can only ponder at who she is and why we need to let her go. Maybe he has tied up some babe to the ferris-wheel in the background. On the first remix

      • Come Undone - Robbie Williams
        20/06/16
        We think, though it's not exactly clear, that what has Come Undone on the original cover artwork of Robbie Williams single is most likely some kind of high powered spring. Though the spring is not visible on the cover, something does seem to have propelled Mr Williams into the ether. It'

      • Fight Dirty - Charlie
        19/06/16
        We can see why the original album cover artwork for Fight Dirty by Charlie would reflect the title, as what we can only presume is Ms Charlie looks as if she is ready to pull a few dirty moves if threatened. On the remix we find two babes already engaged in an epic battle and who are clearly fighti

      • Avenging Angels - Space
        18/06/16
        Now far be it from us to suggest any kind of idiocy on the part of those responsible for developing the original single cover artwork for Avenging Angels by Space, but a metal cheese-grater that has been given metal angel wings, arms and a halo fails in one extremely specific way. The song title ha

      • Silly Games - Lindy Layton Featuring Janet Kaye
        17/06/16
        Does anyone have any idea what Silly Games are being played by Lindy Layton Featuring Janet Kaye? No. And why not? Because the original single cover artwork, whilst providing a fetching picture of Ms Layton, is otherwise so blurry as to obscure any potential opportunity to see what the underlying

      • Miss You - The Rolling Stones
        16/06/16
        We think, although it's not totally clear from the original single cover artwork, that when The Rolling Stones sing Miss You, they may have accidentally been late for some appointment or other, as Mr Jagger, the lead singer, is holding his hand to his head as if he forgot and is now angry with

      • Angel Street - M People
        15/06/16
        What would you expect to see if you wandered down Angel Street? Well, according to M People, it would be the lead singer of the band sitting on a leather sofa, wearing a black velvet coat. On the remixed single cover artwork we find our view of what you would see on Angel Street, which is an angel

      • Looking For Clues - Robert Palmer
        14/06/16
        So Robert Palmer wants us Looking For Clues, does he. Let's take a look at the original single cover artwork and see what we can find. Well, ther's Mr Palmer, standing in the sea, wearing blue jeans and a t-shirt and who seems to be holding something, maybe a book, in his hand. Are we m

      • Leave A Light On - Belinda Carlisle
        13/06/16
        Ah, Belinda, Belinda, Belinda. We do not know what Belinda Carlisle was thinking when she put together the cover for her single Leave A Light On, because there is nothing to show what kind of light it is, or whether it's even on or not. And what is it with the centaur in the bottom left hand

      • Costello Music - The Fratellis
        12/06/16
        We have to admit to being easily confused by what the hell the designers of some album artwork were trying to do. Take, for example, Costello Music by The Fratellis. Not only have we no idea what Costello Music actually is, but the cover tells us only that to listen to it you should ideally be fem

      • Raise Your Glass - Pink
        11/06/16
        OK, we have to admit that we are a little confused. When Pink sings Raise Your Glass, we would expect the original single cover artwork to have some reason to celebrate, or even a picture of a drink. But no: all we find is Ms Pink sitting on a 1960s style olive green chair. On the remix we find a

      • Chocolate - Kylie Minogue
        10/06/16
        Babes and chocolate, is there any better combination (maybe babes and beer?) The thing is that on the original single cover artwork for Chocolate by Kylie Minogue, there is no evidence of any chocolate, which is very appointing. On the remix we find a babe dousing herself with chocolate sauce whic

      • Swing Low Sweet Chariot - Eric Clapton
        09/06/16
        We can vaguely forgive Eric Clapton for putting himself as the mean feature of the original single cover artwork for Swing Low Sweet Chariot, because we don't think that the alternative would have necessarily been acceptable in the 70s. Let us discover why... On the remix we find Chariot (that

      • Back Together - Babybird
        08/06/16
        Yet another Babybird remix sent in by Phil Darnall of England. And without even asking, we can see why this song would need a remix. The original single cover artwork for Back Together is so lacking in any content, it may as well not be there at all. In the remix we find two babes whose backs are

      • Ugly Beautiful - Babybird
        07/06/16
        Another Babybird remix by Phil Darnall of England, today it is the turn of their album Ugly Beautiful. According to Phil, the original single cover artwork shows something that is neither ugly nor beautiful but is just downright repugnant, being what appears to be the foot of someone in a morgue. O

      • You're Gorgeous - Babybird
        06/06/16
        It's always nice to receive user-submitted entries, and this is from Phil Darnall of England. Phil tells us:Lots of girls think that when Babybird are singing You're Gorgeous, it's a touching love melody. If you listen to the words, they are singing about getting a girl to spread he

      • Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space - Spiritualized
        05/06/16
        Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space, is what Spiritualized tell us. But their album artwork says otherwise. The original cover says that we are floating in a world consisting of a number of circles. Maybe that is what space looks like but we think the remix looks more like it as a babe

      • A Spanner In The Works - Rod Stewart
        04/06/16
        Another remix for Rod Stewart, this time it is the original album cover artwork for A Spanner In The Works, that has been given a make-over. On the original cover we find Mr Stewart sitting on a chair. Where's the spanner, you ask? It's on the remix we reply, where we find a babe standi

      • All Thru The Night - POV Featuring Jade
        03/06/16
        So POV Featuring Jade (as we would call it now, instead of all that POV Duet With Jade nonsense) had a song called All Thru The Night, and how wicked they felt having purposefully misspelled through. The original single cover artwork shows the band members and although it could be night, there is no

      • Bad Actress - Terrorvision
        02/06/16
        When we looked it up in a dictionary, it seemed that the definition of actress involves the person concerned being female, yet on the original single cover artwork for Terrorvision's song Bad Actress, all we see are the band members who are all male. Now maybe one of them is actually female an

      • Hourglass - Squeeze
        01/06/16
        The totally confusing thing about the original single artwork for Hourglass by Squeeze is that on the front cover the one thing that is completely absent is any sign of anything that resembles an hourglass. Instead there is a badly drawn (or 'artistic' if you will) drawing of what appears
