      • Borderline - Michael Gray Featuring Shelly Poole
        30/06/17
        The original single cover artwork for Borderline by Michael Gray Featuring Shelly Poole takes as it's source, the video for the song in which several scantily clad babes wearing black lingerie and white blouses dance around on the roof of a building. The remixed single cover does little more t

      • She's A River - Simple Minds
        29/06/17
        Another remix for those Scottish songsters Simple Minds and today it is the turn of their single She's A River. On the original cover artwork we find two of the band members but no river, and no 'she'. On the remix we find that the reason that she is not in fact a river, but has jus

      • Sittin' On A Fence - Twice As Much
        28/06/17
        As we often say at AllBum.Art, sometimes our remix of original single or album cover artwork is inspired by the name of a track, and sometimes by a picture. This one was inspired by a picture of a bootisome babe Sittin' On A Fence, and luckily there was a single by Twice As Much that did the h

      • British Hustle - Hi-Tension
        27/06/17
        Hi-Tension sang about the British Hustle, which is presumably something like American Hustle but with a Dick Van Dyke accent. The original single cover artwork suggest that this may be the case. The remix tells a different story and we find out exactly how the British like to hustle, which seems t

      • Rocket - Def Leppard
        26/06/17
        We really like the original front cover artwork for the single Rocket by Def Leppard. Not only does it show the name of the band, and the title of the song, but the title of the song has been deftly changed into the shape of a rocket. Clever! The remix adds very little other than a cutesy babe rid

      • Love City Groove - Love City Groove
        25/06/17
        Love City Groove with their self-titled single of the same name are, so we are told by wikipedia, Britain's entry to the 1995 Eurovision Song Contest which is some kind of annual European event where countries compete to win a prize for having the worst song. Anyhow, the original cover artwork

      • Yellow River - Christie
        24/06/17
        On the original single cover artwork to Yellow River by Christie, do we get any indication what the nature of this river is? No, we just find the band members who look as puzzled as we are by the nature of this saffron stream. Well boys, our remix helps understand the nature of this amber flow. I

      • Ride A White Swan - T-Rex
        23/06/17
        In the 1970s when Marc Bolan of T-Rex told women around the world to Ride A White Swan, few, if any, had the slightest idea what he was talking about. Although the original cover artwork suggests that this means mounting a white swan and taking a ride, this was, at least in the 1970s both impractic

      • Just One Look - The Hollies
        22/06/17
        It seems that The Hollies are fond of single cover artwork in which the band members appear in front of a red wall. On Just One Look, the banality of their cover is probably the reason why you wouldn't bother taking a second or third look. On the remix we find a babe who is offering you just

      • Breakthru - Queen
        21/06/17
        Have Queen made a Breakthru as the title of their single suggests? if you define breakthru as having the band members peering through a slit on the original cover artwork then maybe. Have we at AllBum.Art made a breakthru with the remix? Sadly not. But what we have achieved at least is to put a q

      • She's So High - Tal Bachman
        20/06/17
        When Tal Bachman tells us that She's So High, we would kind of expect the single cover artwork to help explain who she is and why she is so high. But no, we just find a picture of Mr Bachman (well he is Canadian after all). On the remix we find that she is a 1940s style pin-up girl, and the r

      • A Different Corner - George Michael
        19/06/17
        Interesting isn't it not? When George Michael sings about A Different Corner, you kind of expect the single cover artwork to have a corner in the shot. Instead it's just Mr Michael walking through a forest. Well if that's how you want to handle it, who are we to disagree and in the

      • The Way You Make Me Feel - Michael Jackson
        18/06/17
        What is The Way You Make Me Feel? According to Michael Jackson it is standing as a silhouette against a slightly steamy blue background. So how's about a remix? We thought you'd never ask. On the remix is roughly the same scene, rotated through 90 degrees, with Mr Jackson replaced by an

      • Turn Me On - Norah Jones
        17/06/17
        When receiving a request such as that from Norah Jones, which is to say that she has given the instruction to Turn Me On, we immediately think of light-bulbs, don't you? It seems, however, that on the original single cover artwork, Ms Jones has only thought of the title of the song, and her si

      • Up-Town Up-Tempo Woman - Randy Edelman
        16/06/17
        What marks an Up-Town Up-Tempo Woman? According to the original single cover artwork, Randy Edelman thinks it is the wearing of yellow stiletto shoes whilst standing on a California license plate. We think differently and on the remix you find a babe who is up-town (or down-town, it's difficu

      • Give Me The Night - Randy Crawford
        15/06/17
        A chilled out remix of the George Benson classic Give Me The Night is the subject of today's remix from Randy Crawford, which is a single from her album Naked And True. So on the artwork you would expect something maybe a little more naked and nightly than a smiling Ms Crawford, not matter how

      • Sweetie - The Headquarters
        14/06/17
        We like The Headquarters take on what constitutes being a Sweetie. On their original cover artwork they have a sweet babe and have cleverly used the text on the cover to conceal her sweetest parts. The remix does little to improve upon this, it just modernizes the single with a more up-to-date swe

      • Up-Tight - Stevie Wonder
        13/06/17
        Another remix for Stevie Wonder, this time for his 1966 hit Up-Tight (Everything's Alright). On the original single cover artwork we find Mr Wonder playing harmonica, drums and piano (and presumably also singing), but what is tight about this? On the remix we find a babe who is very tightly st

      • Sexy Pyjamas - Ze Popes
        12/06/17
        We don't know whether or not we agree with Ze Popes about what constitutes Sexy Pyjamas. On the original cover artwork of their single, their notion of what sexy pyjamas entails consists of a curvy lady bending over in a clingy night dress. On the one hand this is quite sexy, on the other it&

      • Angel Eyes - Wet Wet Wet
        11/06/17
        Another remix for those Scottish heartthrobs Wet Wet Wet. On the original single cover artwork for their single Angel Eyes, the only indication that there have been any eyes is the mask which may have been covering them. Maybe an angel called into a party and didn't want to be recognized so s

      • Star Struck - Cheri
        10/06/17
        Cheri is Star Struck. So much so that on the original cover artwork of her single she has forgotten to provide any information or details of what this might look like. On the remix we find a babe wearing a silver dress and looking star struck against a background of stars, could it be any more str

      • Bra - Cymande
        09/06/17
        Could there be a better song name for a remix of the cover artwork than Bra by Cymande? It's just asking to be re-made, especially as the original cover shows a guy wearing a winter hat with a dove sat on his head. The remix shows what the name of the song says it should show, a bra, and one

      • Rockin' For Myself - Motiv8
        08/06/17
        Motiv8 (clever use of a number to replace the end of a word, but note that it only works in English - Motiv-Huit or Motive-Acht just don't cut it) and their single Rockin' For Myself are the subject of today's remix. But what, who and lots of other questions relating to the rocking a

      • Dancing Shoes - September
        07/06/17
        Would you know it, September has an album with the same name as a single we remixed back in March by Dev, called Dancing Shoes. And once again, the original cover artwork lacks one essential detail. That is that the picture of Ms Marklund (for that is her real name) has been cropped above her ankl

      • Hot Legs - Rod Stewart
        06/06/17
        When Rod Stewart sang about Hot Legs it wasn't clear to us whether he was talking about barbecue chicken, or some babe or other. The original single cover artwork doesn't help unless Mr Stewart is walking his way to either of these two possibilities. On the remix we find a babe with hot l

      • Pick Up The Pieces - Average White Band
        05/06/17
        We like the Average White Band especially because their logo is made up of the curvy reverse silhouette of a long haired maiden. We are a little bit let down that their cover of Pick Up The Pieces, didn't expand on this theme, so we have done it for them in the remix. On the remixed single co

      • Poison - Bell Biv Devoe
        04/06/17
        If you're going to release an album whose name is Poison, at least make the cover artwork slightly toxic. This is a lesson that Bell Biv Devoe seem to have skipped preferring, instead to concentrate on advertising themselves. The remix helps them do their learning, as we find a belle who is a

      • Kiss Me Deadly - Lita Ford
        03/06/17
        Yes, it's only June, but introducing the occasional Halloween Hit in the middle of the year is no real problem as long as it's a good one, and Kiss Me Deadly by Lita Ford qualifies. The original cover finds Ms Ford sitting with her guitar, but she doesn't look particularly deadly, no

      • Sensible Shoes - Dave Lee Roth
        02/06/17
        Get this, if you will... The video for Sensible Shoes by Dave Lee Roth was regarded as too provocative for MTV and got little airplay. Odd then, that the original cover artwork for his single errs on the boring. Other than Mr Lee Roth himself looking as flouncy-haired as normal, the only thing to

      • Oranges And Lemons - XTC
        01/06/17
        An odd thing is happening here. On the original album cover artwork for Oranges And Lemons by XTC there as an almost complete absence of citrus fruit, or indeed fruit of any kind. There are some circular blobs in citrus-based colors but these could easily be paint smudges. On the remix we find lo
