      • I (Who Have Nothing) - Shirley Bassey
        30/09/16
        Shirley Bassey sings about someone for who the phrase I (Who Have Nothing) is apparently applicable. On the original cover artwork we find Ms Bassey but she seems to have quite a lot - a dress, some jewelry, an expensive hairdo. On the remix we find a babe who also seems to have an expensive haird

      • The Red The White The Black The Blue - Hope Of The States
        29/09/16
        One thing we can say about the original front cover artwork for the single from Hope Of The States is that it does contain the various colors that the title of their song The Red The White The Black The Blue sings about, but in a confused American/British flag fusion kind of way. On the remix we fi

      • Pull Shapes - The Pipettes
        28/09/16
        The Pipettes want to Pull Shapes, or at least that is what the song is called. On the original single front cover artwork, we find the band holding onto the logo for the band's name and though you could kind of call that pulling shapes in a 'vogue' kind of way, there's not much

      • Higher - The Saturdays Featuring Flo Rida
        27/09/16
        Higher, is where The Saturdays Featuring Flo Rida are telling us to go. The main thing that is higher on the original single cover artwork is the heels on the two babes in the middle and the babe second from right who seems to have jumped into the air. On the remix we find a babe swinging on, now

      • Welcome Home - Peters & Lee
        26/09/16
        This song by Peters & Lee is meant to greet us with a Welcome Home. On the original single front cover artwork the two band members are hugging and although this is quite welcoming, there's no home. On the remix, a woman is standing by the front door of her house waiting to welcome home h

      • Finally Found - Honeyz
        25/09/16
        The Honeyz have Finally Found something or other, but from the original single front cover artwork, the only thing they seem to have found is a tailor who has made suits that are too low cut for them. On the remix we find a dude who has finally found the source of his babe's pleasure. The look

      • Whisky In The Jar - Thin Lizzy
        24/09/16
        Yesterday we remixed a single by Philip Lynott the guitarist and lead singer of Thin Lizzy and today it is the turn of the band themselves and their song Whisky In The Jar (note there is no 'e' in Whisky as they are obviously drinking Scotch, not Irish Whiskey, which is odd given the herit

      • Yellow Pearl - Philip Lynott
        23/09/16
        Famously the lead singer with Thin Lizzy, Yellow Pearl is a solo outing for Philip Lynott. On the original single cover artwork we find Mr Lynott looking all rock and roll with his electric guitar, his cowboy boots and his fuzzy mop of a haircut. On the remix we find a babe who is a pearl of a gir

      • Last One Standing - Girl Thing
        22/09/16
        There is a puzzle to be solved here. Girl Thing claim that there should be a Last One Standing, but on the original cover artwork of their single, two are squatting down and three are jumping in the air. None of them are standing, not even a last one. On the remix we find a lone babe standing on

      • Ain't Your Mama - Jennifer Lopez
        21/09/16
        Not only a triple-play, but another remix that falls into our category of X-rated remixes. On the original single cover artwork, we find Jennifer Lopez holding a hat. How we are supposed to know that this indicated that she is not your mama is unclear, other than the fact that the title of the son

      • Have You Seen Her - Chi-Lites
        20/09/16
        Today The Chi-Lites ask us the question Have You Seen Her? Equally we could as the question, has she seen you? How do we know we could ask this question. Because on the remixed single cover artwork we find a babe who is clearly looking for something or someone and could well be the lost babe that

      • She's So High - Kurt Nilsen
        19/09/16
        Kurt Nilsen seems to think that he is qualified to determine someone babe's altitude and whether or not She's So High. If we are to believe the original single cover artwork, he can do this simply by looking upwards. On the remix we find that the babe who is so high, is sitting on the sea

      • Misery - Indra
        18/09/16
        We like the original single cover artwork for Misery by Indra, largely because of the subtlety of placement of the letters of her name over the chain-mail outfit that she is wearing that would potentially otherwise show of the apparent lack of a bra underneath it. On the remix, the babe posing for

      • Light Of The Moon - The Pierces
        17/09/16
        We are a little confused because on the original front cover artwork for Light Of The Moon by The Pierces, there is no evidence of anything to do with our lunar satellite whatsoever, though there are a few pretty stars around the name of the band. On the remix we find a babe who is on the moon, loo

      • Bad Boys - Alexandra Burke Featuring Flo-Rida
        16/09/16
        One of our very rare and occasional series that we called one for the ladies, courtesy of Alexandra Burke and her song Bad Boys. On the original cover we find Ms Burke but no boys and no indication of bad behavior. On the remix we find five guys who are exhibiting naughty behavior, if not totally

      • Let's Get Excited - Alesha Dixon
        15/09/16
        Let's Get Excited, are the instructions we are given by Alesha Dixon. It is always helpful when issuing such instructions to indicate how it should be brought about, but on the original single cover artwork, all we see is that Ms Dixon is lying down with one arm above her head and her knees be

      • Pissin In The Wind - Badly Drawn Boy
        14/09/16
        Badly Drawn Boy sing about Pissin In The Wind, but their original single cover artwork is neither windy nor pissy. On the X-rated remix, we find a babe who we are sure was drinking beer yesterday with Devlin (the observant will notice she is wearing the same shoes and sunglasses) and as we suspecte

      • Bud, Sweat & Beers - Devlin
        13/09/16
        Oh dear, poor Devlin. Whoever it was that he took on to produce the original artwork for his album Blood, Sweat & Beers, clearly had no idea that it might at least be partially helpful if any of those three topics was somehow reflected on the cover, instead of which we just find a picture of De

      • Winner In You - Patti Labelle
        12/09/16
        We got a bit confused when remixing Winner In You by Patti Labelle as you will see. On the original album cover artwork is what appears to be a Polaroid picture of Ms Labelle, though whether this is a winner or not is down to your tastes. On the remix we find a babe who thinks she has won somethin

      • Army Of Lovers - Lee Ryan
        11/09/16
        An Army Of Lovers, now if that is what Lee Ryan was truly offering then how come on the original single cover artwork there is nothing but a picture of himself? On the remix, this oversight is remedied as we find a whole army of babes who, as far as we can tell, are ready for love being, as it woul

      • Stop This Crazy Thing - Coldcut
        10/09/16
        Our instructions from Coldcut (Featuring Junior Reid & The Ahead Of Our Time Orchestra) is to Stop This Crazy Thing. The original single front cover artwork suggests that the crazy thing that needs stopping is some kind of wooden Godzilla intent on crushing the planet in its teeth. On the remi

      • Warm Wet Circles - Marillion
        09/09/16
        Two of our X-Rated remixes on two consecutive days. It must be the time of year for it. Today is is the turn of Marillion and their song Warm Wet Circles. Now we are not sure what you think of when you consider the notion of warm wet circles, but on the original single cover artwork it seems that

      • Tear Me Apart - Suzi Quatro
        08/09/16
        One in our rare and occasional series of X-rated remixes that we call remi-XXX-es. On the original single cover artwork for Tear Me Apart by Suzi Quatro, we find her screeching into a microphone whilst holding an electric guitar. Why this would tear anyone apart is unclear. On the remix we find a

      • Orange Crush - R.E.M.
        07/09/16
        R.E.M. are regaling us again with their melancholy tones. However, the original single cover artwork for Orange Crush does not provide us with any clue as to what is orange and what is being crushed, whatsoever. On the remix we find a babe dress in orange stockings holding a fierce looking whip.

      • Beachball - Nalin And Kane
        06/09/16
        It may seem a little late in the year to be adding to our summer sizzlers collection but it is still summer (in the Northern hemisphere) and though the days are getting shorter, they are still warm and comforting. So to business... The original single cover artwork for Beachball by Nalin And Kane h

      • Queen Of My Soul - Average White Band
        05/09/16
        Another remix for the Average White Band, this time for their single Queen Of My Soul. On the original single cover artwork, we can see the band members looking at something, but what it is that they are smiling at. On the remix we see the object of their attention, it is, of course, the queen of t

      • Dreaming - Glen Goldsmith
        04/09/16
        It may well be the case that Glen Goldsmith is (or was) in a dreamy mood when he posed for the picture on the original single cover artwork of Dreaming, but it's not that apparent from his gaze. On the remix we find a babe lounging on a chair, eyes closed, feet in the air, and as far as we can

      • Run To You - Whitney Houston
        03/09/16
        When Whitney Houston sings that she should Run To You, you might expect more from the original single cover artwork than a picture of Ms Houston, no matter how melancholy she is looking. What you might expect is a picture of a babe running towards you. So it's handy that on the remix, this is

      • Boys In The Trees - Carly Simon
        02/09/16
        There's nothing particularly wrong about the original album cover artwork for Boys In The Trees by Carly Simon, other than the fact that there are no boys and no trees. Instead we find Ms Simon putting on (or maybe taking off) her stockings. On the remix we have done nothing more than moderni

      • Serious - Pop
        01/09/16
        The thing about the original single cover artwork for Serious by Pop is that the band (all four of them) don't look very serious. Instead they seem to be enjoying standing around on a sunny beach in their swimsuits. On the remix are four babes who look very serious even though they too appear
