      • Lipstick On Your Collar - Connie Francis
        26/08/13
        For some reason it is those classic old songs that are best suited to a remix of the covers. This is a 1959 song from Connie Francis but is still known today as Lipstick On Your Collar is as common today as it was then. Of course the outlook changes from a simple cover with some lipstick on it, to

      • Pony Time - Chubby Checker
        20/08/13
        In the 1960s there were lots of crazy new dances such as the Mash Potato and the Stomp. This was one of Chubby Checker's attempts to launch one, in this case Pony Time. The original cover shows Mr Checker demonstrating the various moves of the Pony Time. The remix shows a naked chick in high

      • You Sexy Thing - Hot Chocolate
        14/08/13
        To the ladies, the picture of Errol Brown, the lead singer of Hot Chocolate might represent a sexy thing with his bald head and melancholy smile. For the boys, though, the idea of a Hot Chocolate Sexy Thing is probably more like the picture on the remixed cover of the single, a hot, chocolate, sexy

      • Professional Widow - Tori Amos
        13/08/13
        Honey bring it close... bring it close to my lips, yeah! At least that is what Tori Amos told us in her 1996 dance-floor filler Professional Widow. But what does a professional widow look like? She would have to wear black and appear very meek but clearly look as if she could tear up any wills th

      • Disco Inferno - The Trammps
        12/08/13
        We were having a bit of a 70s flashback in the office and enjoying The Trammps song Disco Inferno when it was suggested that the cover needed a thorough remixing. The cover shows a platform wedge heel shoe. Well that's probably very representative of 70s discos but in the 2010s things have ch

      • Rock The Boat - Hues Corporation
        11/08/13
        It seems that it's not only Mr Forrest who has a problem understanding what it takes to Rock The Boat. The original version by the Hues Corporation has an equally uninspiring cover showing the three members of the band. Although this is a good start, it is a poor end and what is really needed

      • Rock The Boat - Forrest
        11/08/13
        In 1982 Forrest told us to Rock The Boat. But the cover of Mr Forrest's single would not rock anyone's boat, that is unless they happened to like beardy guys wearing dinner shirts and a false smile. What would rock the boat would be a couple of hot chicks steering it wearing much less, w

      • Don't Turn Around - Aswad
        10/08/13
        Staying with the pictures of babes, in bikinis, on a beach we have remixed this rather obscure hit by reggae outfit Aswad. The cover for Don't Turn Around originally contained a picture of the band but in the remix it is a sexy babe on a beach in a bikini that you can see. What has this got t

      • On The Beach - Chris Rea
        09/08/13
        Yes, a return to bikini clad babes and summer songs is necessary. This single (and album of the same name) by Chris Rea does just that taking us On The Beach. But on Mr Rea's beach there is naught but an umbrella. On the remixed cover the beach is still relatively empty but there is now a cu

      • Smoke On The Water - Deep Purple
        08/08/13
        What a fussy lot you are sometimes? Not only does Maark from South Africa complain that summer songs in August are not right if you live south of the Equator, but now Jessie Hendricks from Charleston SC says that where he lives, the defining feature of the summer months is that there's a const

      • I Can't Stand The Rain - Eruption
        07/08/13
        We got an e-mail from Maark Klempe from South Africa who said that although it might be summer in the northern hemisphere, it was the middle of winter where he lived and that we shouldn't be so insensitive by publishing lots of new cover art for summery songs. So here, especially for Maark is

      • Walking On Sunshine - Rockers Revenge
        06/08/13
        It's August and what could be more natural than digging out those good old summer songs and playing them loud whilst sitting around a pool drinking a cold beer. So remixing the covers of summer hits seems an equally suitable passtime. Here's a remix of 1982 song Walking On Sunshine by Ro

      • Barbados - Typically Tropical
        05/08/13
        What a refreshing find, that even in the 1970s there were designers around who could put a decent cover for a single together. This summery song from Typically Tropical has several covers but all of them show a babe on a beach in various states of undress. If this is what Barbados is like then boo

      • Fantasy Island - Tight Fit
        04/08/13
        Another great summer song, this time from little known British act Tight Fit. Why the remix, well easy. Kent in the 'looking for cool pictures department' found the picture of the awesome chick in the bikini and needed a cover to remix it with. Fantasy Island seemed the ideal choice as we

      • Summer In The City - The Lovin' Spoonful
        03/08/13
        Those summer songs keep on coming. This 1966 classic from The Lovin' Spoonful will be flooding out of radios from the East to the West coast as the sun beats down on the city streets. But the cover shows the band lazing on a sunny afternoon on a detatched stairway to nowhere. The remix shows

      • The Tide Is High - Blondie
        02/08/13
        Continuing the summer holiday theme, here's a remix of the cover for New York disco groovers Blondie's 1980 single The Tide Is High. Even though a picture of Ms Harry reclining over a balcony is probably a reasonable picture for the cover, in the remix, it is clear that the high tide has w

      • Diving - 4 Strings
        01/08/13
        'A song for the summer holiday for party peoples in the world' (according to Jan VanDoelen of Rotterdam who sent us this entry). Apparently 4 Strings are a Dutch trance group and Jan thinks that the cover for their single Diving lacks an essential ingredient, that being, 'some nice g
