      • Malt And Barley Blues - Mc Guinness Flint
        30/09/15
        We know what you're thinking... Malt And Barley Blues, as sung about by Mc Guinness Flint, is no doubt a song about drinking heavy liquor fermented, as it is, from those two ingredients. The original cover artwork does nothing, though, to encourage this explanation. The remix does away with t

      • Nothing's Shocking - Jane's Addiction
        29/09/15
        According to Jane's Addiction, Nothing's Shocking. And to prove this, their album cover shows us two naked babes, sitting next to each other on what appears to be a rocking bench. To make the scene more shocking, their heads appear to be on fire. The remix shows a different kind of shoc

      • Cherry Oh Baby - UB40
        28/09/15
        The original cover for Cherry Oh Baby by UB40 has more to it than might at first meet the eye. Look closely at the pictographic representation of the babe sprawling on the bed and you might notice that she could be naked, with a cherry covering her decency. The remix shows a babe who has gotten up

      • Cover Model - Sabrina
        27/09/15
        Italian topless model Sabrina makes the perfect subject for remixing of covers, because there are so many sexy pictures of her to replace the original artwork with. On this single, Cover Model, we find Ms Salero looking very modelesque (if that it a word). But we could up the modelness (if that is

      • Calendar Girl - Neil Sedaka
        26/09/15
        What would you imagine, if we asked you to picture a calendar girl? Would it be the unsmiling face of Neil Sedaka, or would it be a 60s style pinup girl? Well Mr Sedaka clearly thinks his unsmiling face, with his jacked slung over his shoulder, is the right answer. We, on the other hand, would pr

      • Touch Me In The Morning - Diana Ross
        25/09/15
        Diana Ross is no stranger to fans of AllBum.Art as there have been several remixes of her artwork before. Touch Me In The Morning was an album from 1973 and on the cover we see Ms Ross looking very inviting in a kind of morning color scheme. On the remix we see two babes. One is touching the othe

      • Off The Wall - Michael Jackson
        24/09/15
        If we had saved up all of the remixes of covers of songs or albums by Michael Jackson that we here at AllBum.Art have produced, we'd have enough for a week-long special or thereabouts. Today it's the turn of his popular 1980s album Off The Wall. The original cover would score very highly

      • I Want To Be Your Property - Blue Mercedes
        23/09/15
        You wouldn't have necessarily believed it possible to have two remixes, on two consecutive days whose theme is Mercedes, but here we are. Today sees us remixing I Want To Be Your Property by Blue Mercedes. The original cover sees what we can only presume to be the band members lolling about o

      • Mercedes Benz - Janis Joplin
        22/09/15
        An odd topic for a song, maybe? Janis Joplin sings to us about her Mercedes Benz. But does the cover of her single show the aforementioned automobile? No. It does show Ms Joplin, of that we can be sure. But Lord, won't you show me a Mercedes Benz? Your wish is our command and on the remix

      • Street Angel - Stevie Nicks
        21/09/15
        Continuing the 'street' theme for a short while, here's a remix of Stevie Nicks' 1994 album Street Angel. On the original album cover we find Ms Nicks wrapped in a beige colored cloth. On the remix we see a babe dressed in what might be called an angel outfit, or then again mig

      • Street Songs - Rick James
        20/09/15
        If there's one thing we particularly enjoy remixing here at AllBum.Art, it's albums or singles with the word 'street' in their title. Why? Because it gives us the opportunity to use a picture from one of our favorite topics, naked babes walking down streets. Don't ask why

      • (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher - Jackie Wilson
        19/09/15
        Jackie Wilson tells us, in this classic 60s song, that Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher And Higher. All well and good there Mr Wilson, but just what aspect of the original cover of your single shows us how high this love is lifting you. Is it the sky in the background, or your hand pointing noncha

      • Catch - Kosheen
        18/09/15
        We like the idea used by the designer of the original cover of the single Catch by Kosheen, that being a wild animal who it could be imagined could be caught by some wild poacher with a big shot gun. The remix is far more subtle, but equally catchy. In the place of the wild animal awaiting to be c

      • Private Dancer - Tina Turner
        17/09/15
        Who could forget the song, Private Dancer, by Tina Turner. It includes the line, "I'm your private dancer, dancer for money, do what you want me to to". In today's parlance, this would inevitably refer to the ladies of the pole, the dancers of the mast, the groovers of the stic

      • Holiday - Madonna
        16/09/15
        The end of the summer is nearly upon us, but what better time to brighten the lengthening days with a holiday song by Madonna. And what holiday song is it? Why none other than Holiday! The original cover shows a couple heading off on their vacation by train, the Golden Arrow steam train no less.

      • Lucretia My Reflection - Sisters Of Mercy
        15/09/15
        Goth time, here at AllBum.Art. And a goth classic from the Sisters Of Mercy, in the form of their dark, melancholy single Lucretia My Reflection. But lo!, where is this Lucretia you mention, and what is special about her reflection? On the original cover, none of these questions are answered as w

      • The Runner - The Three Degrees
        14/09/15
        We seem to be having a bit of a run on disco hits this week. The Runner by The Three Degrees ably trots into this category. On the original cover we see the band members wearing the 1970s equivalent of a jump suit, perfect for running. Unless the weather is really hot, in which case what is bette

      • It Seems To Hang On - Ashford & Simpson
        13/09/15
        Continuing the disco theme, we find the cover and the remix for this somewhat obscure 1970s track from Ashford & Simpson. The original cover of It Seems To Hang On shows what we can only presume to be the band members and unless one of them is in some way hanging from the ceiling, there is not

      • I Can Make You Feel Good - Shalamar
        12/09/15
        It is always worth asking the question of any song, what is it that you can do for me? In this case, Shalamar tell us that I Can Make You Feel Good. And whilst their upbeat 1980s disco sound will certainly make anyone feel groovy, it is not altogether clear what it is they could do that would make

      • Fancy Pants - Kenny
        11/09/15
        This entry comes to us via the auspices of Ken Crescendo of Barnsley, England. Ken tells us that in England, the word 'pants' has a different meaning to in the USA, being the undergarment rather that the overgarment. We get what you're saying Ken, and thanks for this remix of Fancy P

      • Light My Fire - Amii Stewart
        10/09/15
        A disco classic, Amii Stewart is asking us to Light My Fire. And we give a big thumbs up to the original cover which shows Ms Stewart smouldering against a smokey backdrop. We can imagine her catching fire quite easily. The remix, then, is a bit of a let down as Ms Stewart has been replaced by a b

      • When You Walk In The Room - Status Quo
        09/09/15
        It seems that songs by Status Quo are hand made for remixing. The original cover of When You Walk In The Room shows a babe standing outside a room where the band are playing with their instruments. The babe is wearing heels. The remix does nothing other than change the perspective so that instead

      • When The Fingers Point - The Christians
        08/09/15
        When The Fingers Point by The Christians. Let's take a moment to consider how well the original cover of this single scores. Does it contain a picture of the band? Yes. Are they pointing? No. With their fingers? No. So overall, not that well then. Thank goodness that there is a remix to h

      • Marlene On The Wall - Suzanne Vega
        07/09/15
        Suzanne Vega sings of Marlene On The Wall. Sings is what she does, but the cover of her single adds no additional color to the scene she is describing. Where is Marlene and what is this wall that she is on? Thankfully the remix assists with answering some of these questions. Marlene appears to b

      • Sunshine, Lollipops And Rainbows - Lesley Gore
        06/09/15
        Sunshine, Lollipops And Rainbows are things that remind you of what? For us it is time for a remix of this classic song by Lesley Gore. The original cover shows Ms Gore smiling but there are no rainbows, and no lollipops and though the sun may be shining, it is not totally evident. The remix repl

      • Drop Dead Gorgeous - Republica
        05/09/15
        The term Drop Dead Gorgeous, as sung for us here by Republica could mean many things. It could mean that a girl is so good looking that one look at her beauty would make you drop dead, such as the supposed beauty of Helen of Troy. Alternatively it could be a babe who is gorgeous, but has dropped d

      • Video Killed The Radio Star - Buggles
        04/09/15
        Video Killed The Radio Star. Kind of ironic really when you think how the likes of MTV have helped keep pop music alive. But back in 1979, Buggles thought that the days of the disc jockey were doomed. So time then, for the remix, and what would you know it, radio has got its own back and seems to

      • Change - Tears For Fears
        03/09/15
        Another remix for British 80s popsters Tears For Fears. And this time it's their single Change. On the original cover we see the two band members in an odd set of positions: one is sitting on the floor, the other is hanging from the ceiling. Both seem intently focused on something. The remix

      • Every Rose Has Its Thorn - Poison
        02/09/15
        What, specifically, are Poison trying to tell us when they sing Every Rose Has Its Thorn? Is it that for every sweet smelling flower in the world, there is a painful spike waiting to rip open naked flesh? Perhaps, but then again it is just a song. And in that vain, we have remixed the cover to sh

      • Life On Mars - David Bowie
        01/09/15
        Is there Life On Mars? That's the question that David Bowie asks us in this 1970s song. Whilst Mr Bowie's wacky outfit might lead us to believe that it is, in fact, him who is the alien, that does not qualify as proof of existence. Nor, should it be said, does the naked babe sprawled ac
