      • Money On My Mind - Sam Smith
        31/07/14
        Money On My Mind, that's what is apparently going through the head of Sam Smith. But you wouldn't know this by looking at the cover of his single. Instead you would think that some kind of impressionist art was on his mind. Let's help you out Mr Smith, when you have money on your m

      • Groovin' - The Young Rascals
        30/07/14
        The Young Rascals would have us all a-Groovin' and a-moovin' no doubt if they could, in their wacky way. How do we know they groove in a wacky way, well the cover of their single suggests this as the band members sprawl around in a myriad of elevations and angles. The remix shows a bunch

      • You Should Be Dancing - Bee Gees
        29/07/14
        What you doin' in your pants? That's the question that the Bee Gees ask in this 1976 single You Should Be Dancing. Now the question that needs asking of this question is, do they mean what is it that it is that you are doing in your pants, or do they mean why on earth are you wearing pan

      • Slow Hand - Pointer Sisters
        28/07/14
        I need a lover with a Slow Hand. I need a lover with an Easy Touch. Is that so? Well the cover of this Pointer Sisters single doesn't indicate what the slow hand is needed for, or why an easy touch is essential. The remix, on the other hand, does! We can see two girls, or 'sisters

      • Reunited - Peaches And Herb
        27/07/14
        Aah, the soulful tones of Peaches And Herb tell of how they want to be Reunited. But to all intents and purposes, the cover of their single shows a couple that seem as if they were never parted. United, probably. Reunited, maybe questionably. The remix has some of this contretemps (to use a posh

      • Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' - Michael Jackson
        26/07/14
        Our recent theme of requited lust continues with today's remix of Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' by none other than Michael Jackson. The original cover sees the eponymous Mr Jackson standing. What is it he wants to start? Why does he want to start it? Who does he want to start it wit

      • Do You Want It Right Now - Degrees Of Motion
        25/07/14
        Following on from yesterday's theme of relationships that probably shouldn't be, today we have a remix of Do You Want It Right Now by Degrees Of Motion. The original cover gives absolutely no indication of what the song is about. None at all. The remix places us in a mighty difficult si

      • Ever Fallen In Love With Someone (You Shouldn't've) - The Buzzcocks
        24/07/14
        1970s pre-apocolyptic punk group The Buzzcocks are trying to issue a cautionary tale in their single Ever Fallen In Love With Someone (You Shouldn't've). What they are trying to say is be careful. It can be easy to be led astray. Sadly the cover of their single does not help us to pictu

      • Ain't No Sunshine - Bill Withers
        23/07/14
        Ain't No Sunshine according to Bill Withers. But he could have fooled us, as there he sits on the porch of a house and it's not dark. Now of course, there could be floodlights but the quality of light suggests that it is being lit naturally (or so says our lighting guru Ian here at AllBu

      • Frozen - Madonna
        22/07/14
        Tired of all these sunny summer songs, well here's something to cool you right down. Frozen was a hit for Madonna in the late 1990s. On the original cover we see Ms Ciccone but is she looking even slightly cold? No. Does she seem chilly? No. Even a little tepid? Maybe. Thankfully the re

      • Mysterious Girl - Peter Andre Featuring Bubbler Ranx
        21/07/14
        We always like user submitted material here at AllBum.Art, so we were particularly delighted to get this entry from Digger Possum of Australia. Apparently Peter Andre is a big star 'down under' and his single Mysterious Girl is his biggest hit to date. Digger says:Fair dinkum Allbum chuc

      • Soul Limbo - Booker T And The MG's
        20/07/14
        Hmmm... What exactly are Booker T And The MG's up to on the cover of their 1969 single Soul Limbo? They are standing around on a beach, hidden under some pillars staring at a hot ebony babe in a white bikini. Just what are they expecting to happen next. And where's any accoutrements nec

      • At The River - Groove Armada
        19/07/14
        Of course not everyone can get to a beach in the summer. There are those who are so far inland that instead they rely on rivers and lakes to find a bit of outdoor liquid refreshment on a hot sunny day. At The River by Groove Armada is an odd combination in that the title is about rivers, but the s

      • You Are The Sunshine Of My Life - Stevie Wonder
        18/07/14
        You Are The Sunshine Of My Life, or so says Stevie Wonder. On the original cover for the single we see Mr Judkins smiling in his inimitable way, singing along into a microphone. But just who is he singing about, and why does she light up his life so. The remixed cover shows the answer. She is a

      • Summer Paradise - Simple Plan Featuring Sean Paul
        17/07/14
        We are willing to give the artist that prepared the artwork for Summer Paradise by Simple Plan Feat. Sean Paul, a bronze star for their effort. They at least captured the feel of what a summer paradise might look like. They would have got a silver star if they had included a picture of the artists

      • Trippin' On Sunshine - Pizzaman
        16/07/14
        Oddly for such an obscure act, this is our second remix of the artwork for a single by Pizzaman - this time it's for Trippin' On Sunshine. As you can clearly see the original cover for the single is downright appalling. It shows nothing at all. Nix. Nil. Zero. Zilch. Our remix shows

      • Sex On The Beach - T-Spoon
        15/07/14

        If ever there were a song that was written for endless dodgy remixes it must be Sex On The Beach by T-Spoon. But not only have we provided you with one remix, but two! The original cover shows the band in true 1990s style, but (maybe because it was too risque even in the '90s) no indicat

      • Summer Of '69 - Bryan Adams
        14/07/14
        Which song better reflects the glory of summers gone than Summer Of '69 by Bryan Adams? Perhaps none. But the original cover of the single gives no indication of what the summer of that particular year might have looked like. Now there are obvious remixes of covers with the number sixty-nine

      • Sun Is Shining - Bob Marley Vs. Funkstar De Luxe
        13/07/14

        Wowser! Four remixes of the same cover. Whaaat! Yes, it's true, when we came to remix the cover of the single Sun Is Shining by Bob Marley Vs. Funkstar De Luxe, we got completely torn for choice over exactly what the remix should look like. And rather than us decide, we here at AllBum.A

      • Let The Sun Shine Thru - Richard F Featuring Samantha Stocks
        12/07/14
        A song so obscure that it doesn't even have a proper single cover, Let The Sun Shine Thru is an uplifting summer sound that deserves to be better known, even if Richard F Feat. Samantha Stocks remain locked away in the production studio. To help them, we have remixed the cover to let the sun t

      • Stranger On The Shore - Mr Acker Bilk
        11/07/14
        We're very much enjoying our summer vacation and all of the remixes associated with it. As it is, we are lounging on the shore and who should walk past us but some sexy stranger. And of course, that is almost certainly what Mr Acker Bilk had in mind when he penned Stranger On The Shore. Unfo

      • Lovely Day - Bill Withers
        10/07/14
        Waking up in the morning. Sun shining. Water glistening. You just know it's going to be a Lovely Day, and what better song to get you going on such a day as this one by Bill Withers. Oddly, on the original cover we see Mr Withers amongst a menagerie of animals. Thankfully, on the remixed co

      • Shined On Me - Praise Cats Featuring Andrea Love
        09/07/14
        What could be more summery than having the sun shining down on your body. Well although Shined On Me by Praise Cats Feat. Andrea Love sums up this sunny disposition well, the cover does not. It seems that someone is hiding behind a dark curtain. Hardly very shiny. Thank goodness for the remixed c

      • Beach Baby - The First Class
        08/07/14
        Do you remember back in old L.A.? Apparently The First Class do in their 1970s song Beach Baby which very much mimics the style of the Beach Boys. But oddly, the band are from England so how they know about 'all American babes' is not clear. Neither is the cover which looks suspiciously

      • Hot Fun In The Summertime - Sly And The Family Stone
        07/07/14
        We're still in a sunny mood, remixing covers of those 'summer sizzlers' that are made for beaches, pools, lakes and anywhere that a bikini is the right thing to wear. Here we have Sly And The Family Stone with their 1969 song Hot Fun In The Summertime. It's not clear why there

      • Walking On Sunshine - Katrina And The Waves
        06/07/14
        What were Katrina And The Waves thinking when they put together the cover for their summer classic Walking On Sunshine? Of course, what could be more reminiscent of the sunshine than a black and white picture of the band members looking blankly at each other. Oddly, we couldn't decide what to

      • Summertime Blues - Eddie Cochran
        05/07/14
        There ain't no cure for the Summertime Blues, at least according to Eddie Cochran there ain't. But that might be because Mr Cochran chooses to ignore what is going on behind him. As he stares forlornly into the distance, guitar in his hand, it seems he has completely neglected to notice

      • Party In The U.S.A. - Miley Cyrus
        04/07/14
        Hey, it's the 4th of July, so what could be more patriotic than to remix the cover of a single that has USA in the title. Party In The U.S.A. was a 2009 hit for Miley Cyrus, who at the time was just breaking out of her Disney inspired cutesy phase and becoming an irksome teen. Now she is know

      • Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days Of Summer - Nat King Cole
        03/07/14
        We are definitely in a summer groove with songs of yesteryear that invoke sunshine. Yesterday we suggested that summer days were lazy which prompted us to remix this classic by Nat King Cole. On the original cover of Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days Of Summer, we see Mr Cole in a suit. On the remix we

      • Beyond The Sea - Bobby Darin
        02/07/14
        Whilst we are in the mood for summer croonin', here's a remix of another summer classic. Beyond The Sea by Bobby Darin is another of those songs that gets you in the mood for those lazy days of summer. The original cover shows Mr Darin wearing a high neck sweater, not normally the kind o

      • Here Comes Summer - Jerry Keller
        01/07/14
        Though this song was in the charts before any of us here at AllBum.Art were born, it still does a great job of instilling a summery vibe. Here Comes Summer by Jerry Keller is just the kind of song you need on the radio on a sunny day at the beginning of the summer to get you in the mood for the day
