      • Dr Love - Tina Charles
        31/08/16
        Feeling unwell in the love department? At a loss how to cure a broken heart? You need the services of Dr Love (or at least that is what Tina Charles should have sung). The question is whether Ms Charles appears in one of these predicaments on the cover of her single. Perhaps she does as she is lo

      • Can You Handle It - Sharon Redd
        30/08/16
        Some songs beg a good remix purely for asking questions that are then not fully answered by the cover of the single, and this is one of those. The cover for Can You Handle It by Sharon Redd shows Ms Redd, but fails to address the question of what it is that we have to determine can, or can not, be

      • Love Is A Stranger - Eurythmics
        29/08/16
        We have taken a little poetic license in producing the remix of Love Is A Stranger by the Eurythmics. In replacing the two weird looking singers of the band, we have used an image that would more accurately fit if the title was 'love is stranger', as we find a babe whose boobs appear cons

      • Get Down - Gene Chandler
        28/08/16
        Yeah, baby, Get Down on that funk-jive master-beat. At least that's how radio DJs of the 1970s introduced Gene Chandler's single. The original cover has the heel of a high heel shoe and what might be a pair of glasses, or a bra (it's difficult to tell) silhouetted against a deep red

      • I'll Stand By You - The Pretenders
        27/08/16
        When The Pretenders sang I'll Stand By You, did they stop to think about what to put on the cover of their single? It seems not, as the picture they chose is of the lead singer standing looking glum holding her guitar. Who is she standing by? The remix solves this problem as a guy stands by

      • Planet Love - DJ Quicksilver
        26/08/16
        Where is Planet Love? According to DJ Quicksilver it is a roiling ball of lava deep in space. Most of us would equate the planet of love as being Venus, however, as this is the most widely recognized planet with love-based credentials. So let us take a look at the surface of planet love and see i

      • Sight For Sore Eyes - M People
        25/08/16
        Another triple-play from us here at AllBum.Art from those burly Brits, M People and their surly song Sight For Sore Eyes. (Note: they aren't really burly and the song isn't surly but the alliteration sounded nice!) What it is about the original cover that would make a sight for sore eyes

      • Agadoo - Black Lace
        24/08/16
        Agadoo doo doo, push pineapple, shake the tree. Now come on, Black Lace, what exactly were you on when you put the lyrics for this song together? It certainly wasn't just pineapple juice. For the remix, and as we have absolutely no idea whatsoever what an agadoo is, we have instead focused o

      • Step It Up - Stereo MCs
        23/08/16
        One of those covers where the band like to pose in 'showbiz' poses, or at least that's what the original artwork for Step It Up by the Stereo MCs says to use here at AllBum.Art. Which is why it needs remixing. And on the remix we find a babe who is stepping up some stairs. Far less

      • Daybreaker - Kenny Hayes
        22/08/16
        A trancey-trancey-bang-bang-breakdown-party type song, Daybreaker by Kenny Hayes is the kind of music you hear at a German nightclub, on a pirate radio station, or when you accidentally tune into MTV Dance. The cover does reflect, in an orange and yellow way, a daybreak, but the remix takes this to

      • Drowning In Berlin - Mobiles
        21/08/16
        [One of those 1980's over romantic new glamorous type affairs here for Mobiles and their single Drowning In Berlin. The thing is, on the cover, there isn't so much as a drop of water in which to drown (though there are lots of overly wet people). On the remix there is just the one babe w

      • A Glass Of Champagne - Sailor
        20/08/16
        Not the first remix for Sailor as it turns out, but this time it's for A Glass Of Champagne. On the original cover we find the band looking somewhat like sailors but with no apparent connection to any kind of Champagne. On the remix the band are gone, as are any nautical connotations, but ins

      • Hi-Heel Sneakers - Tommy Tucker
        19/08/16
        Tommy Tucker sings about Hi-Heel Sneakers on his single and album both of the same name. To give credit where it is due, on the original cover artwork, Mr Tucker is dancing with a babe who appears to be wearing some sneakers with a high heel. We are not sure if these were a thing in 1964 or whether

      • Flying - Bryan Adams
        18/08/16
        Just when we thought we couldn't find any more songs about flying, Alberta, our resident expert on all things Canadanian points out Flying by Bryan Adams. On the original cover of the groover from Vancouver's single, we find an airborne electric guitar. On the remix, we find two babes wa

      • Purple Love Balloon - Cud
        17/08/16
        Another flying related remix, this time from Cud and their song Purple Love Balloon (a.k.a. Flotavius Purpolis Passionatum). On the original cover we find an odd interpretation of the song's title, with the purple love balloon in question actually being an egg plant. OK, so it's purple b

      • 99 Red Balloons - Nena
        16/08/16
        We are approaching the end of the runway, or more specifically our rather lengthy season of flying themed remixes. And how do you know this? Well we've been reduced to remixing songs with balloons in their title, such as 99 Red Balloons by Nena. This was a massive hit all over Europe in the 1

      • I'm Mandy Fly Me - 10cc
        15/08/16
        How better to continue our series of remixes to do with flying than with this classic song from 10cc entitled I'm Mandy Fly Me. On the original cover we find the band strumming their instruments and strutting their stuff. On the remix we find a babe, presumably the aforementioned Mandy, who is

      • Back In The High Life - Steve Winwood
        14/08/16
        Back In The High Life by Steve Winwood was both a single and an album and continues our theme of flying. On the original cover we find Mr Winwood smiling at something, though the picture is so blurry, it's not evident what that something might be. The remix may answer the question, as we find

      • Jet Airliner - Steve Miller Band
        13/08/16
        Yes, we're still remixing songs connected with flying, and today it's Jet Airliner by the Steve Miller Band. The original cover shows Mr Miller singing with his guitar. But where is the jet airliner? Obviously it's in the remix! It's a DC9 and wouldn't you know it but th

      • Crash - Primitives
        12/08/16
        Whilst we're still on the subject of flying, here's a cautionary tale. Not all flights end up with a happy landing, and here we find Crash by the Primitives. The original cover doesn't show us anything to indicate what has crashed or where, but the remix solves this problem as we fi

      • Baggage Claim - Miranda Lambert
        11/08/16
        Another in our series of remixes to do with flying. And in this we find that the baggage for miss Miranda Lambert can be claimed at belt 24. That's where the Baggage Claim is, right. But on the original cover we find Ms Lambert standing in front of a sofa with her guitar. Where is the belt

      • Fly By II - Blue
        10/08/16
        What could be more associated with flying than a song called Fly By II (what happened to Fly By I?) by Blue. On the original cover artwork we find the band looking all moody (another of those self-centered, self-serving covers). On the remix we find II babes who are ready for their fly-by, being,

      • Flying High - Commodores
        09/08/16
        Flying High is what the Commodores are doing. Or more accurately, if the cover artwork is to be believed, it is the band's logo that is actually soaring above the ground. The remix is simple yet effective, it shows a hot babe flying high over a city, sitting in a helicopter. She needs to be

      • Jet - Paul McCartney And Wings
        08/08/16
        Is there any more obvious a song to remix the cover artwork for when delving into songs about flying than Jet by Paul McCartney And Wings. Not only is the title of the song all aerospatial, but the name of the band is associated with being in the air too. On the original cover we see the clouds ov

      • Cloud Number 9 - Bryan Adams
        07/08/16
        This song is variously titled 'Cloud #9', 'Cloud Number 9' and 'Cloud Number Nine' so take your pick as Bryan Adams seemed to have done, and thrown it at a pot of blue paint which has covered the model on the original cover artwork. As we continue our series of remixes

      • Riding On The Wings - Motiv8
        06/08/16
        We're Riding On The Wings (riding on the wings, riding on the wings) of an angel, or so sings Jocelyn Brown on this single by Motiv8 as we continue our series of remixes related to flying. After all, if you are riding on the wings of an angel, then unless she is a fallen angel, chances are that

      • Benny And The Jets - Elton John
        05/08/16
        There seems to be a little confusion concerning whether this song is entitled Benny And The Jets, or Bennie And The Jets (the Wikipedia entry for the song has both as being correct). Anyhow, Elton John kicked up another storm with the original cover of this single because where is Benny (or Bennie)

      • You Take Me Up - Thompson Twins
        04/08/16
        Yes, we're still in the midst of a set of remixes concerning flying with this remix of You Take Me Up by the Thompson Twins (all three of them). On the original cover all we can see as a tambourine. It is being held high but does it really take you up. On the remix we find a babe in an eleva

      • Learning To Fly - Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers
        03/08/16
        If it wasn't enough that Pink Floyd have a single called Learning To Fly, but so, as we continue our remixes dedicated to flying, does Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers! On the original cover we find the band standing around (what is it with bands that do this on their covers). On the remix we

      • Learning To Fly - Pink Floyd
        02/08/16
        We continue our summer season of flying-based remixes with Learning To Fly by Pink Floyd. Just what the band were thinking when putting together the cover for their single is unknown, but it seems that wearing carpet slippers made of grass is somehow connected with flying. Not for us. Instead we

      • Flying - Cast
        01/08/16
        August is upon us, and so people begin to disappear on their summer vacations. To celebrate their departure, we begin the month with a series of remixes dedicated to Flying, with a song with exactly that title from band Cast. On the original cover we find the band members standing around looking a
