      • Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) - Eurythmics
        30/11/12
        To be brutal, Annie Lennox the lead singer of the Eurythmics, has always had a face that would cause nightmares more than it would 'Sweet Dreams'; her scary, androgynous looks being more akin to salt and vinegar chips than smooth silky chocolate. There are, of course, those who like salt

      • Midas Touch - Midnight Star
        29/11/12
        It is great to receive submissions from people who are getting the hang of what AllBum.Art is all about. This one is from two ladies who call themselves 'Ms Holly Da Yin' and 'Ms Mary Ott'. They were rather bored by the cover for the 1986 cover of the single 'Midas Touch&#

      • White Wedding - Billy Idol
        28/11/12
        It is time to return once again to Mr Billy Idol, this time to his 1982 song 'White Wedding' again courtesy of Brent Gdzinski of Charleston, SC. There is some controversy over the meaning of the song but general agreement that being 'a nice day for a White Wedding' is less to do

      • Bad Girls - Donna Summer
        27/11/12
        Donna Summer's 1979 disco classic 'Bad Girls' was supposedly inspired after one of Donna's assistants was stopped by a police officer who thought she was a prostitute. How such a mistake could have been made is unknown, however the cover of the single shows Donna leaning against

      • Divinyls - Divinyls
        26/11/12
        Australian band Divinyls released their self-titled album in 1991. They are probably most famous for their song 'I Touch Myself' which reached number 1 in their home country and number 4 in the US Billboard Top 100. Both the cover of the single 'I Touch Myself' and of their alb

      • Hot In The City - Billy Idol
        25/11/12
        Originally released in 1982 but a bigger hit when re-released in 1987, Billy Idol's 'Hot In The City' was also used in the feature film 'Big'. It seems reasonable to presume, from the cover, that Mr Idol was indeed rather warm as he is not wearing any shirt. The picture of

      • On The 6 - Jennifer Lopez
        24/11/12
        The cover of Jennifer Lopez's (J-Lo to her fans) 1999 album 'On The 6' features none other than Ms Lopez herself kneeling on a cream colored sofa in a tight fitting t-shirt and skimpy gold shorts. One can't help wondering whether Ms Lopez got the idea for the gold shorts from Ms

      • Feels Like I'm In Love - Kelly Marie
        23/11/12
        Although this cover has been filed under '1980s singles', the actual album art that has been modernized is from the 2006 'Best of' album which also happens to have the same name as Kelly Marie's most famous single, 'Feels Like I'm In Love'.

      • Chic - Chic
        22/11/12
        The cover for Chic's imaginatively titled 1977 debut album 'Chic' has on its cover two sultry looking ladies blowing referee's whistles. The ladies concerned are typical of the disco divas of the time being in their twenties and having long hair. What they are wearing is unknow

      • Power - Ice-T
        21/11/12
        The cover for Ice-T's album 'Power' is already one of the sexier covers around and caused a stir at the time. According to WikiPedia:
        The album cover, photographed by Glen E. Friedman, was the subject of controversy upon its original release, due to the provocative pose of Darle

      • Spacer - Sheila & B. Devotion
        20/11/12
        French band, Sheila & B. Devotion (sometimes mistakenly called 'Sheila B Devotion') hit the charts in 1979 with the disco classic 'Spacer'. The song has since been sampled extensively by, for example, Alcazar in their hit 'Crying at the Discotheque'. The original

      • Frosty The Snowman - Various Artists
        19/11/12
        Nothing too rude to get us kicked off on the in the whole festive vibe, but in time for Christmas, here is an alternative remix of cover artwork for the single, Frosty The Snowman. The picture of the lady sitting on Frosty's knee used here was taken from the front cover of a magazine called �
