      • A Question Of Lust - Depeche Mode
        12/07/18
        What is A Question Of Lust? Well, it's obviously a single by Depeche Mode, but can the original cover artwork for the single help us to answer the question? Maybe it can, and the answer seems to be about kissing in a sensuous way but without allowing your lips to touch. The remix really does

      • Paradise Lost - The Herd
        11/07/18
        The Herd have not found Paradise Lost, but seem, as far as the original front cover artwork goes, to have lost it. That is unless you consider red and pink clothing, leather jackets and flouncy shirts to count as paradise. On the remix we find a babe who is sitting on a tropical beach (or at least

      • Flat Beat - Mr Oizo
        10/07/18
        Who can forget the iconic video for Flat Beat by Mr Oizo where his compadre Flat Eric (the teddy bear looking thing) taps his hands in time to the music, makes a phone call and does all manner of things that detract from the simple fact that the song is awful. The original front cover artwork shows

      • Welcome To Poppy's - Fun Lovin' Criminals
        09/07/18
        Thank you to Fun Lovin' Criminals for helping work out where exactly things are. It's now clear we must be at Poppy's place as they have clearly said Welcome To Poppy's. Where exactly that is, is less than clear, as the original album front cover artwork shows us not much more

      • Summertime - The Sundays
        08/07/18

        A summery triple-play for The Sundays and their single Summertime. On the original cover is a ladybug. Why this is representative of summer is not that clear. On the first remix, we have a babe standing in the sea in her bikini, which unfortunately seems to have gotten rather wet. It'

      • Take It Off - The Donnas
        07/07/18
        Take It Off, screech The Donnas from inside a television on the original front cover artwork of their single. The question is, who is acting upon their instructions. The answer comes in the form of the remix where a mature babe has done as she has been told and taken off her dress. She appears to b

      • Summer Rain - Belinda Carlisle
        06/07/18
        It may be the summer, but that doesn't mean that every day is full of sunshine. In fact it sometimes rains in the summer, and that is what Belinda Carlisle is explaining in her song Summer Rain. On the original single front cover artwork someone has had a go at placing a picture of Ms Carlisl

      • Everybody Loves The Sunshine - Roy Ayers Ubiquity
        05/07/18
        Not just one or two people, but Everybody Loves The Sunshine, according to Roy Ayers Ubiquity. To demonstrate this, on the original single front cover artwork, we find Mr Ayers in a sunny yellow t-shirt. On the remix we find a babe who is actually outside enjoying the sunshine, dipping her body in

      • Lola Stars And Stripes - The Stills
        04/07/18
        Something special for Independence Day, as we bring you Lola Stars And Stripes by The Stills. On the original single front cover artwork you will find some stars, but no stripes and no sign of Lola. On the remix we find the stars and stripes being held patriotically by a babe wearing nothing more

      • Winter In July - Bomb The Bass
        03/07/18
        Though the northern hemisphere experiences summer in July, in the southern hemisphere, it's Winter In July. Maybe that's what Bomb The Bass were thinking about when they put together the original single front cover artwork. That said, other than the fact that they are wearing warm coats,

      • Summertime - DJ Jazzy Jeff And The Fresh Prince
        02/07/18
        While we're starting to enjoy the summer sunshine, let's take a look and see how DJ Jazzy Jeff And The Fresh Prince paint us a picture of the Summertime. If the original single front cover artwork is to be believed, it's all about skateboarding, skipping, basketball and leaping over

      • In The Summertime - Mungo Jerry
        01/07/18
        A sunny, summery remix for Mungo Jerry. On the original single front cover artwork for In The Summertime, we find the band members lolling about by a rather uninspiring waterfall, maybe that was regarded as summery in the 1970s? On the remix we find a babe doing some lolling of her own but somewhe
