      • Lifting Me Higher - Gems For Jem
        31/07/15
        One of those single covers where no effort whatsoever has been paid. Does it instruct us who Jem is? No. Does it show us the gems that are for Jem? No. Does it show us what is being lifted? No. Does it explain why it is being lifted higher and not lower? No. The remix answers many, though not

      • Ladyflash - The Go Team
        30/07/15
        We would call the original cover of Ladyflash by The Go Team a complete failure. It does not show the band members at all, it doesn't have a lady on the cover, and there is no flash. The remix solves at least two of these problems, as we see what is definitely a lady, and in a pose where she

      • Flash - B.B.E.
        29/07/15
        Not a bad effort from B.B.E. on the cover of their single Flash as they have used the idea of a lightning strike to illustrate a flash. Presumably the flash of light that it produces, or maybe the fact that it would zap anything it touches in a flash. Our remix therefore doesn't add that much

      • Joe Le Taxi - Vanessa Paradis
        28/07/15
        We might be wrong, but we think that this is the first remix here at AllBum.Art of the cover of a single that is not in English. Joe Le Taxi is by French singer and model Vanessa Paradis. Apparently it means 'Joe the cab driver' which is presumably why, on the original cover, Ms Paradis

      • Flashback - Imagination
        27/07/15
        Use your Imagination and what would you come up with to remix the cover artwork of a song called Flashback? We used our imagination and came up with the idea of a babe, flashing her back at us. Such a simple idea, but the trick is to carry if off with finesse, and so we were particularly pleased w

      • Hotel California - Eagles
        26/07/15
        A week of remixes of superband Eagles would not be complete without a remix of their all time classic, Hotel California. Let's ignore the original cover which has an eagle, but little else to distinguish it, and instead focus on the remix. What would a hotel in California look like? Well, fo

      • Desperado - Eagles
        25/07/15
        OK. We give the Eagles almost full marks for the original cover of their album Desperado. Why? Well firstly it contains a picture of the band. And secondly, the band are dressed and are posing like a set of wild-west desperados. So the cover artwork reflects the band and the title, giving it an

      • Life In The Fast Lane - Eagles
        24/07/15
        Life In The Fast Lane... hot babes, fast cars, dangerous driving? No. Apparently not. According to this week's featured band Eagles, it's about sitting around looking somewhat bored with life. How dreary. The remix however, has hot babes and fast cars. How's about the dangerous

      • Take It To The Limit- Eagles
        23/07/15
        The fourth in this week's remixes of Eagles remixes. And would you know it, the band have almost completely and utterly replicated the cover of Lyin' Eyes to a tee, with a picture of the band, and the same font and layout, albeit in a different color scheme. And so we have replicated the

      • The Long Run - Eagles
        22/07/15
        How totally uninventive of the Eagles for the cover of their album The Long Run. It features what... nothing, that is what. Not the band. No-one running. Nothing long. Thank goodness for the remixed cover which shows some babes running. How do we know it is a long run and not a short one? Eas

      • Lyin' Eyes - Eagles
        21/07/15
        The second in our week-long set of remixes of cover artwork by the Eagles. Today it is that classic song Lyin' Eyes. Now it's OK that a band put a picture of themselves on the cover of their singles, indeed that is commended. But it would help if they did something also related to the so

      • Hell Freezes Over - Eagles
        20/07/15
        A new week, and the start of a week-long series of remixes of cover artwork by classic rock legends, Eagles. For no particular reason, we begin with their 1994 album, Hell Freezes Over. The original cover shows a few flames flickering around the title of the album. Hardly hellish. The remix shows

      • Take Me To Church - Hozier
        19/07/15
        It is Sunday. Amen. So where should we go? Well according to Hozier we should Take Me To Church. What is the attraction with church (other than, of course, eternal salvation from our naughty sins)? It seems to be a weird parrot-human-newspaper-pipework hybrid. No, that won't do. The remix

      • Black Stockings - John Barry
        18/07/15
        It is clear, or at least translucent, why John Barry is smiling so brightly on the original cover of his hit Black Stockings. And why is that? It's because his head is in a position where he is underneath the petticoat of a lady and whose stockings he can clearly see. But times, they are a-c

      • Outstanding - The Gap Band
        17/07/15
        When the Gap Band sing that a babe is Outstanding, and that 'girl you knock me out', there is only one thought that goes through the mind of the team here at AllBum.Art. What is that thought? Well see for yourself. What kind of babe is outstanding enough that she could knock you out? W

      • Naked And Warm - Bill Withers
        16/07/15
        It's always a lovely day when the time comes to provide a remix of some cover artwork by Bill Withers, and today is no exception. The original cover of Mr Withers' album Naked And Warm shows Mr Withers looking warm (or at least the sun hat would suggests he is somewhere warm) but is he na

      • New Flame - Chris Brown Featuring Usher & Rick Ross
        15/07/15
        Another blazing hot remix, this time for New Flame by Chris Brown who is incapable of making a song in his own right and therefore needs to feature Usher and Rick Ross. We like the original cover of the single, with the seemingly naked babe silhouetted in fire and as such, our remix really doesn�

      • Fire - Julie Bergan
        14/07/15
        Yes, there's a definite theme in the air here at AllBum.Art. A theme that sets remixes ablaze, a theme of fire and flame. Today is is the turn of Julie Bergan and her single Fire for the treatment. The original cover shows a smiling Ms Bergan but where is the flame, where is the fire? The r

      • Chariots Of Fire - Vangelis
        13/07/15
        What do you think of, when confronted with the phrase Chariots Of Fire. Well, according to Vangelis it is nothing more than a Roman torch of flame. But here at AllBum.Art our minds don't work that way. When we think of chariots of fire, we think of blazing hot maidens, harnessed in leather,

      • Music - John Miles
        12/07/15
        Music was my first love, or at least that is what John Miles tells us in the 1970s classic anthem. But what is it that Mr Miles is holding on the cover of the original single? Is it a musical instrument or a shotgun? It is not clear at all. The remix takes us back to our first love, music, playe

      • I Am Not A Robot - Marina & The Diamonds
        11/07/15
        Marina & The Diamonds sing a song to tell us that I Am Not A Robot. But how can we tell? The original cover supplies us with no evidence as to whether the cover girl is a robot or not. On the remix we have asked her to take some clothes of so that we can see if she is a robot or not, and what

      • Girl On Fire - Alicia Keys
        10/07/15
        We're having a bit of a run on songs about flames and fire and to add to that collection, here comes a remix of Girl On Fire by Alicia Keys. On the original cover artwork we see Ms Cook (her real name) who is arguably pretty hot, but on fire? The remix solves this as we ass a girl, who is lit

      • Eternal Flame - The Bangles
        09/07/15
        Another remix for the all girl band, The Bangles. Today it is the turn of their single Eternal Flame to get the remix treatment. The original cover is very nice, and all, having a picture of the babes in the band on it, but where's the flame, and why is it eternal? None of these questions ar

      • A New Flame - Simply Red
        08/07/15
        Not the first remix for Simply Red (and not the last either). This is a remix of the cover artwork for their single A New Flame. On the original cover we see the band's lead singer Mr Hucknall, whose flame red hair may be the inspiration for the artwork. On the remix we see a babe who is fla

      • Mama's Pearl - The Jackson 5
        08/07/15
        Some bands make so little effort with the covers of their songs and the original cover of Mama's Pearl by The Jackson 5 is one of these. Why the band had so little imagination other than to use a plain red cover is anyone's guess. Well it was, until we carefully removed the red covering

      • Wonderwall - Oasis
        07/07/15
        Another remix for British band Oasis, this time for their 1995 single Wonderwall. The original cover shows a girl standing in a park whilst someone holds up the frame of a picture in front of her. One can only wonder what this has to do with a wall. The remix shows a similar picture, but instead

      • Parklife - Blur
        06/07/15
        Yesterday we took a walk in the park, today we are studying the Parklife, as defined by Blur. It seems that the band's view of the kind of life that is found in a park is greyhound racing. We are not sure what constitutes a park in Britain where the band are from, but surely even in England p

      • A Walk In The Park - Nick Straker Band
        05/07/15
        Another song that has a title so demanding of a remix that it would be a travesty not to do so: A Walk In The Park by the Nick Straker Band. Why does this so demand a remix? Well the title, for one. Why not show a babe going for a walk in a part, now that would be sensible. And 'straker

      • Up Around The Bend - Creedence Clearwater Revival
        04/07/15
        It would be true to say that the subject of this remix bares an uncanny resemblance to that for Bend And Break by Keane. The main difference is that for Up Around The Bend by Creedence Clearwater Revival the girl shown in the remix (who is in a remarkably similar pose) is on the corner of the stree

      • Dancing On The Beach - Sandman
        03/07/15
        As the summer heats up, we begin adding to the AllBum.Art collection of summer sizzlers. Today is is the turn of Sandman and his 1997 single Dancing On The Beach. If there has every been a more obvious need for a remix it is this poor effort. All that was needed to add some sizzle was to replace

      • Throwing It All Away - Genesis
        02/07/15
        Perhaps a truism by Genesis on the cover of their single Throwing It All Away. And what might that be? The fact that they have thrown away the chance to have a sexy cover for their song, and instead insisted on appearing on the single themselves. Megalomaniacs. We have solved their megalomania f

      • Hold My Body Tight - East 17
        01/07/15
        What were the boys of boy band East 17 thinking when they prepared the cover for their single Hold My Body Tight. Presumably they were thinking that if they put pictures of their own half-clad bodies on the artwork their fans would want to hold their bodies tightly. They were probably right, back
