      • Monster Mash - Bobby (Boris) Pickett And The Crypt Kickers
        31/10/13
        As it's Halloween, we're dishing up a double daily dose of dastardly deeds. In this case, a remix of the 1962 single from Bobby (Boris) Pickett And The Crypt Kickers. This song is forever on the radio at this time of the year, despite being over 50 years old. The Monster Mash is about a

      • Somebody's Watching Me - Rockwell
        31/10/13
        As it's Halloween, time for something appropriate to the date (or inappropriate as the case may be). The cover for the 1984 single Somebody's Watching Me from Rockwell has as couple of eyes peering out of the corner but no indication of what it is that they are watching. Spooky as it may

      • Bullet In The Gun 2000 - Planet Perfecto
        30/10/13
        Another picture that was just screaming out to be used to remix a cover. But there aren't that many songs about guns, and so this one is for the rather obscure trance track Bullet In The Gun from European dance act Planet Perfecto. It makes a nice remix though as the original cover is very du

      • Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car - Billy Ocean
        29/10/13
        Does this song win the award for the longest title? Probably not, but Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car is a pretty long title brought to us by Billy Ocean in 1988. The original cover shows Mr Charles standing in a very rock and roll pose but there's no sign of the car, or any dreams. In

      • Love Of The Common People - Nicky Thomas
        28/10/13
        Love Of The Common People is one of those songs that has had many cover versions, and equally many covers too. This remix is for the 1970 cover by reggae star Nicky Thomas. On the cover we see two babies, one black, one white, kissing. Of course those babies are now grown up and on the remix we s

      • Mickey - Toni Basil
        27/10/13
        Mickey is a cheerleader classic. Why? Not because the song is anything to do with cheerleading, but because the cover of the song has a picture of Toni Basil wearing a cheerleader outfit. Of course today, cheerleaders are know as happy-go-lucky party girls whose shorts are short and whose morals ar

      • Things That Make You Go Hmmm... - C+C Music Factory
        26/10/13
        Back in the 1990s, the C+C Music Factory were explaining the background to various Things That Make You Go Hmmm... The cover of the single though, doesn't really help explain anything at all, other than that the band has an appalling taste in album art. In the remix, two things are made clear.

      • Devil In A New Dress - Kanye West
        25/10/13
        Devil In A New Dress was a 2010 single by rapper Kanye West, word. Some credit is due to Mr West for the original single which features, in the background, some chick wearing stockings and suspenders. Sadly the contrast is reduced to next to nothing so we can't see here that well. Crank up t

      • Short Shorts - The Royal Teens
        24/10/13
        Who wears Short Shorts? That's the question that The Royal Teens were asking back in 1957 (that's officially a long time ago). Although the song is obviously meant to describe the wearing of particularly skimpy shorts, the cover, which features the band, does not help visualize the short

      • The Joker - Steve Miller Band
        23/10/13
        Some people call me the space cowboy... That's what Steve Miller Band told us in their 1970s single The Joker. And from the cover it's quite easy to see why the aforementioned Mr Miller might get accused of being from out of space (especially in the 1970s). But what about the joke relate

      • Spread Your Love - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
        22/10/13
        Time for a remix for San Francisco/L.A. rockers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Their single Spread Your Love is just asking for a special AllBum.Art remix, especially as the original cover is so incredibly dull. The difficulty with finding a picture of a sexy babe to which the phrase Spread Your Love

      • Fly Away - Lenny Kravitz
        21/10/13
        A second cover remix for NYC's very own Lenny Kravitz. The original cover for Fly Away shows Mr Kravitz in a very pouty pose. Now perhaps he is expecting this pose to somehow provide him with some means of becoming airborne, but otherwise there's nothing to indicate exactly how, or why, he

      • Cleanin' Out My Closet - Eminem
        20/10/13
        Interesting that an artist as respected as Eminem should have a cover for his single Cleanin' Out My Closet that misses one very very important element, and that is any evidence of actual cleaning going on. Of course someone as rich as Mr Mathers no doubt employs other people to do his cleanin

      • Goody Two Shoes - Adam Ant
        19/10/13
        Another submission from a fan of the site (if 'fan' and 'this site' aren't inherently contradictory). This comes from Alan Morris from Manchester in the UK. Alan says,Goody Two Shoes is a song that has always held a special meaning for me. I met my first love when this wa

      • Love Song For A Vampire - Annie Lennox
        18/10/13
        Love Song For A Vampire was written by Annie Lennox (better known as the lead singer of electropopsters Eurythmics for the film Dracula. To be fair, the cover does a reasonable job, showing, as it does, Ms Lennox in vampy make-up. We thought we could do better though and have replaced Ms Lennox wi

      • Pulling Mussels (From The Shell) - Squeeze
        17/10/13
        How do we keep up the dismal quality that is the hallmark of this web-site? By finding weird pictures of cute babes and then infusing them with a special kind of blurriness and then adding them, sub-consciously into the cover of a track. That's how this one came about. Pulling Mussels (From T

      • Don't Look Back In Anger - Oasis
        16/10/13
        This 1996 song from British band Oasis has probably one of the worst covers that we at AllBum.Art have seen. Are the band members there? No. Is there anything that relates to the title of the song, like a back, or someone who is angry? No. Damn good job that we go our hands on it then and came up

      • Bus Stop - The Hollies
        15/10/13
        Another cover art remix prompted by a picture rather than by the song. What could be more normal than a woman standing at a Bus Stop with her panties around her ankles? Where on earth did these pinup artists get their ideas. Regardless, it's a good chance for a remix of a golden oldie, in thi

      • Somebody Else's Guy - Jocelyn Brown
        14/10/13
        Despite not being a big hit in the charts, Somebody Else's Guy by Jocelyn Brown is one of those songs you just can't help bobbing along to. The remix of the cover is just simply pulling open the blinds of the original cover to reveal the girl behind. With the blinds open we can see that sh

      • Float On - The Floaters
        13/10/13
        One of those 1970s soul classics, Float On by The semi-eponymous Floaters has a really terrible cover. That's not to say that a picture of the band isn't a credible attempt, but boys, please, the name of the band and the name of the song involve floating, so where's the floatiness?

      • Air Hostess - Busted
        12/10/13
        Whilst we are on a transport theme, what about moving from trains to planes. Hey presto! Here is a remix of the 2004 single from British boy band Busted. The original cover of Air Hostess clearly demonstrates that the boys in the band find the idea of air hostesses sexy. Our remix has just turned

      • Last Train To Trancentral - The KLF
        11/10/13
        Here at AllBum.Art we are rather fond of pictures of naked chicks in and around train tracks (the reasons for which are unknown but might perhaps be to do with how boring rail journeys generally are). Anyhow, what better than to add another remix to the list and this time an obscure 1990s single fr

      • Through The Barricades - Spandau Ballet
        10/10/13
        According to this 1980s new wave single from Spandau Ballet, we made our love on wasteland, and Through The Barricades (that's what the chorus says anyhow). But the cover shows nothing of this at all. Now it does score some points because it has a picture of the band on it, but shows nothing

      • Centerfold - J Geils Band
        09/10/13
        Time for the remix of cover art that is just screaming for one. This 1981 single from the J Geils Band has on its cover a picture which is presumably meant to reflect what represented a centerfold in the 80s, though actually a quick Goggle[sic] search for 80s centerfolds reveals a lot more than the

      • Blue Suede Shoes - Elvis Presley
        08/10/13
        Not the first remix of the cover of a single for Elvis Presley. This time it's the rockabilly classic Blue Suede Shoes which is just begging for modernization. Although a picture of Elvis is what set the world alight in the late 1950s, these days it's hot chicks that do it (and probably

      • Poison Arrow - ABC
        07/10/13
        Another single cover remix that has been initiated by a picture. This time it's 1980s new wave band ABC and their single Poison Arrow that gets the remix. We have replaced the picture of a sexy female archer holding some arrows with a similar picture of a sexy female archer but this time draw

      • We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off - Da Playaz Versus Clea
        06/10/13
        Taking clothes off seems to be a recurring theme here at AllBum.Art, for very good reasons. This time it's a remix of the cover version of We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off by Da Playaz Versus Clea which is doing the honors. Instead of the original band members with their clothes on,

      • Whip It - Devo
        05/10/13
        Whip It by Devo is one of those songs that will probably be played forever more at discos and parties across the nation. Why? Because the idea of 'whipping it good' provides an image that most party-goers would see as being the next steps to a successful night after the party has ended.

      • Light My Fire - Will Young
        04/10/13
        Aah... there's nothing so natural to behold as naked girls frolicking in the woods. So all that's needed is an excuse to use a picture of some. And this version of the classic song Light My Fire by British singer Will Young is just screaming for a remix. Gone is Mr Young's chinny gr

      • You Can Leave Your Hat On - Joe Cocker
        03/10/13
        We seem to be stuck in the 1980s this week with this remix of the cover of Joe Cocker's song You Can Leave Your Hat On. The song is synonymous with movies where people get naked (9.5 Weeks and The Full Monty for example) but the cover does not reflect this for even one hat-pickin' minute.

      • Living In A Box - Living In A Box
        02/10/13
        As we have said many times before at AllBum.Art it is often a picture that spurs on a remix of the cover of a song, rather than the song or its original cover. That's the case with this obscure 1980s track by the eponymous Living In A Box. We found a picture of a cute babe who appeared to be

      • It's My Party - Lesley Gore
        01/10/13
        It's My Party, and I'll cry if I want to. That's what Lesley Gore told us in her 1963 version of this song. The cover though gives no indication of why Ms Goldstein would be crying at the party. The remixed cover gives us an insight into what is happening at the party and now much
