      • Halloween - Misfits
        31/10/16
        Halloween is finally upon us, as fiendish ghouls and ghastly fiends take to the streets. The Misfits provide us with today's appropriately titled remix. On the original cover we find the band members looking suitably monochrome and blurred. On the remix we find a Halloween misfit, in the sha

      • Devil Gate Drive - Suzi Quatro
        30/10/16
        As the devilish day approaches, we continue our series of Halloween remixes with Devil Gate Drive by Suzi Quatro. On the original cover we find Ms Quatro standing on top of three folk who seem to be clawing at here. But where is the gate? It's on the remix of course, where a mature babe has

      • Spiderwebs - No Doubt
        29/10/16
        Our short season of Halloween remixes continues with Spiderwebs by No Doubt. On the original cover we find the band members trying to look spooky against the backdrop of a spider's web which has clearly been airbrushed in afterwards. Poor show! On the remix we find a babe who appears to be c

      • Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) - David Bowie
        28/10/16
        Another in this week's series of Halloween remixes by none other than David Bowie. His album Scary Monsters and his single Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) makes ideal material for a remix, not least because the original cover isn't particularly scary or creepy at all. On the remix, tho

      • The Ballad Of Peter Pumpkinhead - XTC
        27/10/16
        Our remix of The Ballad Of Peter Pumpkinhead not only falls into the category of Halloween remixes but also into our XXX-rated remixes. On the original cover we find what is presumably Peter Pumpkinhead (his head does not look particularly pumpkin shaped) being burnt at a stake, no doubt a warlock.

      • Freak On A Leash - Korn
        26/10/16
        Korn with their single Freak On A Leash is another ideal candidate for a Halloween remix, especially as the original cover which shows no signs of any freaks or any leashes, nor the band, has any real connection with the song. On the remix we find a babe who has been tied down by a large chain (tec

      • Scared - Slacker
        25/10/16
        Woooo, be Scared, it's Slacker and their crazy single cover. Crazy their cover may be, but scary it is not. Unless you happen to be frightened by letters printed on a Dymo. That is why we, at AllBum.Art are here. An on the remix we find a babe who looks very scared. Part of the reason she

      • Road To Hell - Chris Rea
        24/10/16
        When Chris Rea sings about the Road To Hell you would expect him to give some kind of direction so that it's clear where to avoid (or where to go) if you wanted to find Hades. On the original single cover artwork, though, all we can see is an odd cube floating in space. Thankfully on the remi

      • Walking Dead - Puressence
        23/10/16
        As Halloween is just a week away, we thought we would bring you a whole week of Halloween remixes. Kicking off the week is Walking Dead by Puressence. The original cover for their single shows the back of a stone warthog (isn't that the one from Hogwarts?). But it's not walking and alth

      • The Bartender And The Thief - Stereophonics
        22/10/16
        Ask yourself... What would the cover of a single called The Bartender And The Thief look like? According to the Stereophonics, it looks like a blurred speeding red lorry. According to us, it looks like a thief in overalls is stealing the clothes from a busty barmaid in yellow high heels. Now, as

      • Change Clothes - Jay-Z
        21/10/16
        Let's Change Clothes, or at least that is what Jay-Z would have us do. To help us with this, he has provided us with a threatening stance which is less encouragement and more coercion. That may explain why the babe on the remix is having so much trouble with his instructions. She has clearly

      • You'll Never Know - Hi-Gloss
        20/10/16
        You'll Never Know anything about the song if the only information from Hi-Gloss that you had to go on was the cover of their single. Well, perhaps you would know that there was a babe painted in hi-gloss paint. The remix, to be fair, doesn't really help. All that we have done is taken a

      • Another Day In Paradise - Phil Collins
        19/10/16
        What does Another Day In Paradise look like? If we are to believe the cover of Phil Collins' single, it looks like a monochrome, sullen experience. No! That's not what another day in paradise looks like. It looks like a sunny beach with a blue sky and golden sand. And to make it parad

      • Oblivious - Aztec Camera
        18/10/16
        So, where do we start with the original cover of Oblivious by Aztec Camera? For starters, the girl may be oblivious to something, but what it is that she is oblivious to? And is she Aztec? Well she may be but then again, she could just be wearing a vaguely south American scarf. Thank goodness, t

      • On My Radio - The Selecter
        17/10/16
        A triple-play from The Selecter as we remix their 70's ska classic, On My Radio. On the original cover we find the band members in their two-tone outfits singing on a stage. Maybe this is being broadcast on the radio, maybe it isn't. On the first remix we find a babe who may be broadcas

      • Rat In Mi Kitchen - UB40
        16/10/16
        Two in a row (that's the whole weekend) for UB40. On the original cover for Rat In Mi Kitchen, we find a red and yellow rat with a black and white tail, sniffing around the name of the band. But where is the kitchen? On the remix we find a babe who is trying to catch a rat that has been let

      • Red Red Wine - UB40
        15/10/16
        Another remix for those reggae rebels UB40. The original cover artwork for Red Red Wine shows the band posing for the camera (that old thing again). But there is no wine anywhere. On the remix we find three babes, each with a glass of red wine in their hand. It seems they may have had a little t

      • 10c A Dance - The Flirts
        14/10/16
        You don't get much for 10c, but if you ask The Flirts, this is the going rate for a dance with the, or at least it is if the title of their album 1c A Dance is to be believed. On the remix we find a much more realistic situation based on inflation and today's paid dancing sector, as a bab

      • All Fall Down - Ultravox
        13/10/16
        Another remix for Scottish songsters Ultravox. This time it is for their 1986 single, All Fall Down. The original cover fails on so many fronts, it's not even worth discussing. The remix is worth discussing, as we find a group of babes who have all fallen down. It is worth discussing becaus

      • The Show Must Go On - Queen
        12/10/16
        Another remix for rock legends Queen. On the original cover artwork for The Show Must Go On, we find little other than the name of the song, the name of the band, and a regal logo. On the remix we find out more about the show which appears to be some kind of naked cabaret, performed by a group of

      • Heartbreak Radio - Roy Orbison
        11/10/16
        Roy Orbison, or the Big O as he was often known, is perhaps most famous for his single Oh, Pretty Woman. So it is therefore a shame that on the cover of his single Heartbreak Radio, there is no pretty woman. Thankfully on the remix this problem has been fixed and there is not a pretty woman who mu

      • Doctorin' The Tardis - The Timelords
        10/10/16
        Continuing the outer space theme from yesterday a bit, here's a remix of Doctorin' The Tardis by The Timelords. The original cover has a car that claims to be a Ford Timelord, and also claims to have made a record. On the remix we find the tardis (a British police box for the uninitiated)

      • Venus And Mars - Jo Breezer
        09/10/16
        Nothing better for a good remix than a space-related song, and hence Venus And Mars by Jo Breezer provides an ideal opportunity to mix our love of remixes and babes, with all things outer-spatial. On the original cover, we find Ms Breezer wandering through a field, on a planet that looks very suspi

      • What's Your Sign - Desree
        08/10/16
        What's Your Sign, asks Des'ree. Is it Scorpio? Actually, it isn't. We prefer a different kind of sign, more specifically a street sign. And we aren't alone in our preferences as on the remixed single cover we find a babe showing us her favorite street sign, the 'turn lef

      • Red Alert - Basement Jaxx
        07/10/16
        If you are going to issue a Red Alert, which is what Basement Jaxx have done, you need to be very clear on the reason. You can't just go around issuing such high level warnings without some purpose. On the original cover artwork for the single, it is definitely not clear what the point of the

      • Gimme Dat Banana - Black Gorilla
        06/10/16
        Gimme dat, gimme dat, Gimme Dat Banana, sings the jungle-worthy Black Gorilla. Actually, we give the band the thumbs up for the original cover which shows a black gorilla swiping a banana from a cheeky monkey. The remix takes a slightly different tack as one babe asks the other to give her a banan

      • Some Girls - Ultimate Kaos
        05/10/16
        Would you believe it, there is another song called Some Girls, this one by self-proclaimed Ultimate Kaos. The cover of their single, however, fails in exactly the same way that yesterday's remix by Racey does - there are no girls on the cover. The remix once again comes to the rescue as we fi

      • Some Girls - Racey
        04/10/16
        Oh dear. Where do we begin with the cover artwork for Some Girls by Racey? It is another of those 'let's showcase the good looking band members' types of cover (we really should coin a term for such covers) and is lacking in two very important respects:The remix solves both these pr

      • Class/Style (I've Got It) - Linda Lewis
        03/10/16
        Linda Lewis tells us that Class/Style (I've Got It). Probably, for the 1980s, her denim jacket and pearl necklace and earrings were the height of style and class, but we aren't so sure. On the remix we find a babe in a hat, lacy panties and high heels which we think looks far more classy

      • End Of The Road - Boyz II Men
        02/10/16
        Another remix for Philly soulsters Boyz II Men. So what do the 'boyz' tell us we will find at the End Of The Road? According to their original cover artwork, it will be themselves. OK, for some that may be enough. On the remix, though, we find a babe wearing lots of fishnet and not in

      • Sunny Afternoon - The Kinks
        01/10/16
        October may be upon us but that doesn't mean grey days and rainy afternoons all the time, there is still room for the odd Sunny Afternoon and so what better time to remix this cover from The Kinks. On the original artwork is one of those 'let's show off the band' types but is it
