      • Gold - Spandau Ballet
        30/09/13
        The cover of this 1983 song from Spandau Ballet fails in so many ways, it's difficult to know where to begin. For starters, the title of the song is Gold but the cover has no gold on it. None at all. Neither does it show any of the band members. And so it does nothing to connect the viewer

      • Waterfalls - Stooshe
        29/09/13
        Like many a time here at AllBum.Art a remix of the cover art of a song has been spurred on, not by the original artwork, but by a single picture that just deserved to grace the front of a cover. This is the case with this remix of the 2012 cover of TLC's Waterfalls by British band Stooshe. Or

      • Where The Streets Have No Name - U2
        28/09/13
        Where, indeed, do the streets have no name, that is the question we should be asking. But this question is not answered by the cover of U2's 1987 single Where The Streets Have No Name. We could only think of one place where the streets have no name, and that would be where no-one cares what t

      • Macarena - Los Del Rio
        27/09/13
        The Macarena was a world-wide dance craze in the mid 1990s, brought to us by the power of three old Spanish crooners called Los Del Rio. The dance involved folding your arms every which way (but loose) and then, after some arm flailing, a couple of jumps to take you through 90 degrees to point in a

      • Walk Like An Egyptian - The Bangles
        26/09/13
        Walk Like An Egyptian is the well known single from LA band The Bangles. The cover of their 1986 single leaves a lot to be desired, though. Not only does it not contain a picture of the sexy band members themselves (which would surely have been sufficient for the cover not to require a remix), but

      • I'll Be Waiting - Lenny Kravitz
        25/09/13
        Onkel Joz writes to us to suggest his remix of the cover for Lenny Kravitz 2008 song I'll Be Waiting. As you can see, Joz's remix is rather subtle and just adds in the words 'wait even longer mix' and corrects the jaunty angle that was an abhorrent slur on the original cover. W

      • Blue Eyes - Elton John
        20/09/13
        The second remix for 70s popster Elton John. This time for his song Blue Eyes, the original cover for which features Mr Dwight leaning on what appears to be a pole (as used in the eponymous dance act). Did they have those in 1982? Anyhow, the remix just shows a babe with blue eyes, who, for some r

      • Legs - ZZ Top
        19/09/13
        Just a simple update of this classic 1980s rock track from ZZ Top. The original cover does a pretty good job of identifying the kind of legs that the Top boys are singing about. But that was nearly 30 years ago. Today, skirts are shorter and heels are higher and the remixed cover does a good job

      • Just The Way You Are - Bruno Mars
        18/09/13
        Another remix for Mr Bruno Mars. This time it's his 2010 single Just The Way You Are. What is all that craziness going on on the cover? A mosaic of a face of a woman... is that how Mr Hernandez likes his women. And is that how Mr Hernandez wants his women to remain? Us, we prefer a naked chi

      • Here Is The News - Electric Light Orchestra
        17/09/13
        The remix for this 1982 single from the Electric Light Orchestra was prompted by the closure of the local newspaper. Apparently no one reads newspapers any more, they get their news on TV or online. The original cover of Here Is The News shows the band standing on (or in front of) what appears to

      • I Talk To The Trees - Clint Eastwood
        16/09/13
        Did you even know that Clint Eastwood was a singer? Yes, he had a single in 1969 with a song taken from the movie Paint Your Wagon. The cover of the single I Talk To The Trees shows Mr Eastwood together with Mr Marvin sitting by a camp fire so where are the trees and why are they on speaking terms

      • Head Over Heels - Allure Featuring Nas
        05/09/13
        We're in a bit of a Head Over Heels vibe, having been looking for pictures for yesterday's Tears For Fears track. This track of the same name from New York R&B babes Allure has a sexy video but a boring cover. So we remixed it with another 'heels over head' babe. This one

      • Head Over Heels - Tears For Fears
        04/09/13
        Three covers? Why not! The original cover for this 1985 single from Tears For Fears shows the two band members looking moody - oh, great - just what you need. No! What you really need is some kind of Head Over Heels remix and that's just what we have delivered for you. The first remix is just

      • I Can't Wait - Nu Shooz
        03/09/13
        Whilst we were in 1984 (see yesterday's Van Halen remix), this song from Nu Shooz came to mind. The original cover art for I Can't Wait shows what exactly? A pedestrian crossing guy and some colored blobs (maybe meant to be traffic signals). What do we see in the remix? A hot chick in

      • Jump - Van Halen
        02/09/13
        Many an air guitar has been played at discos across the nation when Van Halen's 1984 hit Jump blerted out of the loudspeakers. But the cover is taken from their album 1984 and does not demonstrate in any way, how to actually jump. So the remixed cover does this for you. What you obviously need

      • Bounce - Calvin Harris Featuring Kelis
        01/09/13
        If ever a song title was rife for a-remixing, it has to be Calvin Harris with his song Bounce (featuring Kelis). The original cover shows Mr Harris wearing some rather odd looking sunglasses that would appear to pretty much cut out all the light. The remix shows us why he needed them as he's
