      • 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
