      • Jump In My Car - David Hasselhoff
        19/07/13
        As much of a self publicist as David Hasselhoff is, we can't help but think that he would be cool with the remix of the cover of his 2006 single Jump In My Car. Yes, he is famous for jumping into a car (the camp Kitt) but is probably equally famous for his lethariosity (is that a word?) So ha

      • Hold My Hand - Michael Jackson And Akon
        18/07/13
        There aren't that many singles which are officially labelled as a duet, but this one from the late, great Michael Jackson And Akon falls into that category. Called Hold My Hand, it shows two people holding hands - see what they did there? All that the remix has done is to zoom out a little to

      • Girls Fall Like Dominoes - Nicki Minaj
        17/07/13
        Two things are true to say. Firstly, most of the covers from Nicki Minaj's singles require no remixing, being about as out-there as anyone else. Secondly, the only reason that the cover of Girls Fall Like Dominoes has been remixed is because in the AllBum.Art office, we stumbled across a pict

      • We Ride - Rihanna
        16/07/13
        The third piece of remixed album artwork for Rihanna, We Ride was released in 2006 but was a bit of a flop for Ms Fenty. A lot of the blame for this can probably be laid at the feet of the cover itself. Yes, it is nice to see a picture of Ms Fenty where the only skin on show is that which would ev

      • Beautiful Monster - Ne-Yo
        15/07/13
        The only thing that can be deduced from the cover of Ne-Yo's 2010 single Beautiful Monster is that Mr Smith (a.k.a. Ne-Yo) believes that it is more important to see his pouting face on the cover of the single than a close up of the monster about which he is singing. Thankfully, we have managed

      • Grenade - Bruno Mars
        14/07/13
        Does the hand-drawn blob on the cover of Bruno Mars's single Grenade look like a grenade to you, or more like a Robin wearing an ear-ring? A very poor attempt at a cover. It's a good job that AllBum.Art is here to remix the cover to bring back some sanity. In it, the ear-ring wearing bir

      • In Da Club - 50 Cent
        13/07/13
        In 2003 when 50 Cent released In Da Club, his first single, Mr Jackson (for that is his real name) was not that well known. Now we know him well for his hard hittin' hip-rap-hop blend of musings (for that is how we describe it). The thing is, the cover of the single for In Da Club (for that is

      • Bermuda Triangle - Barry Manilow
        10/07/13
        Mythologically speaking, in the Bermuda Triangle, things disappear. That's the general thrust of this 1980s song by Barry Manilow. On the cover, though, the only thing that has clearly disappeared is Mr Manilow's fashion sense. What would be more convincing would be to see a familiar Be

      • It's Raining Again - Supertramp
        09/07/13
        With summer here, what better time than to focus on songs about rain! This 1982 song from Supertramp declares that It's Raining Again. The cover of the single, however, has to rate as a 'fail'. Not only is the band not visible, but the only thing to suggest any kind of rain is a pic

      • Here Comes The Rain Again - Eurythmics
        08/07/13
        There is no particular reason for having a bit of a run on Eurythmics songs other than they make good subjects for remixes. Here Comes The Rain Again is another melancholy performance from the band with a cover which is equally lugubrious, showing the band members sitting looking at a brown wall.

      • There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart) - Eurythmics
        07/07/13
        There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart) was a top chart pop hit for British band Eurythmics in the mid 1980s. In those halcyon days, the art of producing appropriate (or inappropriate) single covers had not been perfected and we therefore see on the cover, an angel flying through the sky pus

      • Can't Take My Eyes Off You - Boys Town Gang
        06/07/13
        This version of Can't Take My Eyes Off You is a 1980s remake of the classic Frankie Valli song of the 1960s by 'Cisco disco dudes Boys Town Gang. But, yuk, what a single cover. The gang seem to be car mechanics and it is completely unclear why anyone would be unable to take their eyes of

      • Genie In A Bottle - Christina Agulera
        05/07/13
        I'm a Genie In A Bottle, you've got to rub me the right way. Those were the instructions given to us in 1999 by Christina Aguilera. Under normal circumstances, being told what to do in that way would result in immediate backlash, but we will give Ms Aguilera the benefit of the doubt. One

      • Surfin' USA - The Beach Boys
        04/07/13
        A triple play from The Beach Boys, and their American classic Surfin' USA especially for the 4th of July. On the original cover the boys are carrying their surfboard on the beach, so thumbs up for a cover that reflects the song. On the first remix is a blonde babe carrying her own surfboard -

      • Bend Me, Shape Me - Amen Corner
        03/07/13
        Bend Me, Shape Me, anyway you want me. That's what Amen Corner believed constituted appropriate lyrics in 1966. Not until Aqua's Barbie Girl in the late 1990s did such submissive lyrics re-appear. The cover shows a doll ready to be bent and shaped, but only a wooden one. How much nicer i

      • Wrap Me Up - Alex Party
        02/07/13
        Wrap Me Up is the 1995 single from Italian dance troupe Alex Party. It's another obscure track but is here because of the delightful remix of the cover. The original cover says nothing. The remixed cover says "Wrap Me Up then Unwrap Me". Pull on the ribbon and see what's under

      • Dancing Tight - Galaxy Featuring Phil Fearon
        01/07/13
        Dancing Tight. What does the title of this 1983 single by Galaxy Featuring Phil Fearon bring to mind? Well, a babe in a tight fitting outfit dancing perhaps. No, that's not what Mr Fearon had in mind, instead a picture of him star jumping in a silly 1980s outfit. So we replaced Mr Fearon wi
