      • I Was A Ye-Ye Girl - Doing Time
        30/09/14
        What can we say about I Was A Ye-Ye Girl by Doing Time, other than yeah, baby! Apparently, Ye-Ye girls were a phenomenon in the 1960s in France where they were the high fashion pop babes of the time. The original cover provides no glimpse of what such a girl might have looked like so it is good th

      • Georgy Girl - The Seekers
        29/09/14
        Still back in the 1960s, as we discover what Georgy Girl looks like. The Seekers provide no real indication of what a Georgy Girl is or does and though the 1960s are a long way back in the past, we at AllBum.Art are proud to have found a picture of a Georgy Girl in the internet archives. It seems

      • Jackie - Scott Walker
        28/09/14
        Always nice to receive a well thought through remix from someone who is clearly a bit mad. Dave Wilson of London, England has sent us this remix of the single Jackie by Scott Walker. Dave takes up the story:Jackie was the name of a pirate radio station in the 1980s in London and used this song as

      • Lessons In Love - Level 42
        27/09/14
        Lessons In Love are what Level 42 sing about. But what does the cover of their single teach us? Why nothing more than the fact that the band were more concerned about posing in black and white than in helping us to understand what lessons in love might be like. That needs to be remedied immediate

      • We Are The Champions - Queen
        26/09/14
        We Are The Champions, or so say British rock legends Queen. But does the cover of their single scream out this fact with gay abandon? No. It doesn't. In fact, it doesn't do anything other than name the band and the title of the song. So much better then that the remix abandons this pa

      • Waterfalls - TLC
        25/09/14
        What would you expect to see on the cover of a single called Waterfalls? Would it be three dudettes dressed in baggy clothes presented in a cartoon stylee? Well the three dudettes on the original cover are meant to be the members of the band TLC whose song it is. But where's the wet? The wa

      • Laughter In The Rain - Neil Sedaka
        24/09/14
        Another in our ongoing 'rain' series... In the song Laughter In The Rain, Neil Sedaka tells us that he is walking hand-in-hand with the one he loves. On the cover, though, he is just sitting around in a very fetching 1970s shirt that has clearly been nowhere near any rain, nor is there an

      • I Wish It Would Rain Down - Phil Collins
        23/09/14
        Continuing in the 'rain' series, here's a remix of I Wish It Would Rain Down by Phil Collins. On the original single cover we see Mr Collins looking like he was hoping to go on a picnic but that the rain stopped him and he's irked. Now the shame of it is that on the remix we ca

      • Love Will Come Through - Travis
        22/09/14
        Here we are again with another dreary song by Travis. And accompanying their melancholy, downbeat performance is the cover of a single that could have been made by a 10 year old with no idea of art. Thankfully the remix shows something more akin to the ethos of the song. A sexy babe in a see thro

      • Why Does It Always Rain On Me - Travis
        21/09/14
        Yes, summer is well and truly over. The sun has gone and the dreary rainy days are settling in. And what better way to not enjoy a dreary rainy day than to listen to a dreary song about rainy days. To the rescue is Scottish band Travis and their dreary song Why Does It Always Rain On Me. Perhaps

      • Sunrise - Ashiva
        20/09/14
        Well it's nearly over. 'What is?', you ask. The summer of course. Yes, today is the last day of summer and we've brought you many a summer sizzler over the season. We conclude the summer with Sunrise by Ashiva. The original cover is just awful, truly awful. Who thought that

      • My Favourite Waste Of Time - Owen Paul
        19/09/14
        Your my Favorite Waste Of Time, sang Owen Paul back in the 1980s when songs didn't need to make sense. From the cover of the single, what can we surmise? It seems like the waste of time that Mr Paul is singing about is going down to the cineplex and watching a movie about two people holding h

      • I See Right Through To You - DJ Encore Featuring Engelina
        18/09/14
        A reader submitted entry from Hemming Feddersen of Denmark. Apparently I See Right Through To You was the theme tune to the Danish version of Big Brother. No doubt DJ Encore Featuring Engelina made some capital from that old chestnut. Hemming tells us:It's all very smart. The song has some

      • Seven Tears - The Goombay Dance Band
        17/09/14
        The Goombay Dance Band, who could possibly forget them? Except everyone, la? This remix is a special request for someone we will just call JQ - he knows who he is. Initially we thought Seven Tears, perhaps we could do a large wedding cake and claim we thought the title was seven tiers? But that

      • Rivers Of Babylon - Boney M
        16/09/14
        By the Rivers Of Babylon is where you will find Boney M. Hey, just hang on a cotton-picking minute, isn't this the same single cover that you remixed yesterday? Well, yes it surely is. But the cover was a double A-side and so today we are remixing the other side of the single, that OK for you

      • Brown Girl In The Ring - Boney M
        15/09/14
        Brown Girl In The Ring, la, la, la, la. Classic lyrics if ever there weren't any. And what about the cover of this single by Boney M? Does it show a brown girl, well arguably yes as several of the band members could qualify for that. Are they in a ring? No. Then we have the remix which sho

      • Mama Said Knock You Out - LL Cool J
        14/09/14
        Whilst we're doing the whole 'older woman' thing, what better song to remix than LL Cool J's 1990 classic Mama Said Knock You Out. Mr Cool J seems to think that this means standing around, fists tight, shirt off, medallions glinting in the darkness. We think it means that Mama

      • Summer Son - Texas
        13/09/14
        Summer Son. Hmm... now what kind of image does the title of this 1999 single from Texas conjure up? The band themselves thing that it is a picture of the lead singer posing and pouting on what appears to be a summer's evening in Houston. But that's 'summer sun' not 'summe

      • Here Comes The Sun - The Beatles
        12/09/14
        Not a single from The Beatles as such, but a track from the multi-selling album Abbey Road, Here Comes The Sun seemed to deserve a remix as much as any other song. The inspiration, well let's just say that in the remix, it's very clear where the sun is coming from, isn't it...? And

      • You Are My Sunshine - Bing Crosby
        11/09/14
        It's not that often that we delve so far back in time for a remix, but as the summer slowly draws to a close, it's time for a few more summer sizzlers before the long nights draw in and the rain starts to fall. You Are My Sunshine was recorded my many artists but none oozed warmth like Bi

      • Fly Me To The Moon (In Other Words) - Frank Sinatra
        10/09/14
        You know, one of the most popular remixes of cover artwork on the AllBum.Art web-site is the remix of Frank Sinatra's Come Fly With Me, so when remixing the erstwhile Mr Sinatra's songs, there's some big boots to fill. Here we present our remix of Fly Me To The Moon (originally known

      • Broken Arrow - Pixie Lott
        10/09/14
        Right back at ya' in the zazzulon press fields is Ms Pixie Lott with her smangasmic single, Broken Arrow. Tworfing around on the original cover is Ms Lott a-leaning and a-deaning to a backways doogh, a-holding her stilettio-folio to a-stop from a-fallin overwise. On the remix, well an arrow b

      • Tears - Ken Dodd
        09/09/14
        Tears. Is that it? Not much of a title to go on is it? But then back in the swinging 60s, perhaps that's all that was needed by way of the title of a song to give it credulity. At least that's what Ken Dodd must have thought. But at least show us some tears on the cover of the single

      • Anyone For Tennis - Cream
        08/09/14
        Anyone For Tennis? A cry that goes out through the ages to those who enjoy that kind of racket (see what we did there). Cream sang about this in 1968. But, and here's the rub, the cover of their single, singularly fails to sing or even hum anything that is connected with the ancient and vagu

      • Night Train - Visage
        07/09/14
        Who would have believed that a band as obscure as Visage would merit a remix of their single covers here at AllBum.Art? But here we are with a remix of the cover artwork for their single Night Train. The original cover shows the lead singer (Steve Strange no less) standing around in black and whit

      • Caught In The Middle - Juliet Roberts
        06/09/14
        Caught In The Middle by Juliet Roberts is one of those songs that has been remixed so many times that it doesn't know whether it's coming our going. So the time seems beyond beyond to remix the cover of the single. The original cover shows Ms Roberts in a fetching fur-lined coat. The qu

      • Everybody's Got Summer - Atlantic Starr
        05/09/14
        Everybody's Got Summer, at least they have according to Atlantic Starr. But the East Coast crooners seem to think that having summer standing around in front of a derelict printer's building is the way to 'got summer'. We don't 'got' that, and prefer to think of

      • The Sun Has Got His Hat On - Ambrose And His Orchestra
        04/09/14
        As if yesterday's remix wasn't going far enough back in time, we delve even deeper into the depths for today's. The Sun Has Got His Hat on was performed by Ambrose And His Orchestra in, wait for it, 1932! The original cover shows a pin-up girl of the era on a beach holding her sun h

      • Lollipop - The Chordettes
        03/09/14
        Lollipop, lollipop, ooh lolly-lolly-lolly... For this song we are going way back in time to the 1950s, but it's a song that makes as much sense now as it did then. The Chordettes sang lollipop, and from the looks of the cover artwork of their single, they did so whilst sitting in the rear of a

      • Things We Lost In The Fire - Bastille
        02/09/14
        Whilst we are talking about hot burning things like fire, Bastille's song Things We Lost In The Fire has a major fault. The cover of the single tells us nothing about what was lost in the fire at all. Is it a wolf on a broken down motor? In a desert? If you had lost that, would it be worth s

      • Bonfire Heart - James Blunt
        01/09/14
        James Blunt regales us with his tales of fiery love in his song Bonfire Heart. But though his song may scream of burning beauty, the cover just shows Mr Blunt and the name of the song. Where, you are asking, is the fire. Where are the hearts? Thankfully the remix of the cover artwork deals with
