      • The Red Shoes - Kate Bush
        30/11/13
        What is it with people that they aren't happy to have sexy AllBum.Art to brighten up their music collection? Following a complaint that a lot of the stuff we remix is not necessarily current chart hits, we then got a letter from Joe McGonagall of Alberta, Canada. Joe says:You guys are always

      • Drive - The Cars
        29/11/13
        Drive by The Cars is one of those songs that every truck driver should have available to play at a second's notice on the cassette player in their cab. And cab drivers should have available to play at a second's notice on the crappy old CD player in their dashboard. The original cover, ni

      • Forever In Blue Jeans - Neil Diamond
        28/11/13
        Forever In Blue Jeans by Neil Diamond. Do we need to add more? A classic song that lives on in the hearts and minds of Mr Diamond's fans to this very day (those of his fans who still have hearts and who are living and breathing that is). The original cover shows Mr Diamond. That's it.

      • Vienna - Ultravox
        27/11/13
        The song Vienna by Ultravox was, apparently, the breakthrough song of the 1980s new romantic synth-pop era. This remix of the album cover of the same name comes from Simon Lampeter of Britain who says:The new romantic era was all about romance and newness. The original album cover has neither. My

      • Tied Together With A Smile - Taylor Swift
        26/11/13
        Which category should this Taylor Swift cover remix go under? Tied Together With A Smile was never a single and it wasn't an album either. It was just a song on an album and as such would not normally have its own cover. But it does! And the remix helps explain the soug (which is about bulim

      • Hanky Panky - Madonna
        25/11/13
        Not the first remix for Madonna (in fact the third so far). Ms Ciccone's 1990 single Hanky Panky is perfectly poised for a remix what with it very explicitly mentioning a little 'spanky'. And so Ms Ciccone's visage has been explicitly replaced by a perfectly poised maid, ready

      • Suit & Tie - Justin Timberlake Featuring Jay Z
        24/11/13
        The cover for Suit & Tie by Justin Timberlake Featuring Jay Z actually scores nearly 100% on the AllBum.Art scale as it features the aforementioned Mr Timberlake in a Suit and Tie, therefore reflecting the artist and the name of the song. For many, this is probably where the line should be draw

      • Just The Two Of Us - Grover Washington Jr And Bill Withers
        23/11/13
        Just The Two Of Us is an 1980s song by saxophonist Grover Washington Jr with vocals by Bill 'Lovely Daaaaaaaaaaaay' Withers. The cover, is not so lovely. A glass of wine? Well perhaps this is Mr Washington Jr's take on what a night in for two people is like. We do not concur with

      • The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?) - Ylvis
        22/11/13
        What do you imagine when you think of Norway? Is it snow covered pine forests? Reindeer? Whale fishing? Well think again. Think 'ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringading' and you're getting warmer (global warming no doubt). Norwegian comedy due Ylvis have brought the sound of The Fox (W

      • Upside Down - Diana Ross
        21/11/13
        Would you know it? The cover for Upside Down by Diana Ross is wrong in one extremely enormous way ... Ms Ross is the right way up! Thankfully this has been corrected in our first remix which shows Ms Ross the correct way around for this song. In our second remix, Ms Ross has been replaced by some

      • Short Skirt/Long Jacket - Cake
        14/11/13
        If ever a cover did nothing to reflect the name of a single, this has to be up there with the worst. The original cover of Short Skirt/Long Jacket by California alternative rock band Cake depicts a girl playing an accordion. The accordion is so large that it is impossible to see how long her skirt

      • Eye Of The Tiger - Survivor
        13/11/13
        When looking for pictures for yesterday's remix of Roar by Katy Perry, we came across lots of pictures of tiger related babes and felt the need to do a remix of the all-time tiger classic, Eye Of The Tiger. The original cover of this Survivor song, has a tiger in it, whose eyes (note the plural

      • Roar - Katy Perry
        12/11/13
        The fourth AllBum.Art for Katy Perry is partly in response to an e-mail we received from Kaydn of Jacksonville, FL. In her e-mail, Kaydn (no surname given) said:y is u always remixing old shit like disco and that - do some chartz LOL
        Although Kaydn's use of the language is a bit shit itse

      • There But For The Grace Of God Go I - Machine
        11/11/13
        Another triple track whammy for you by the AllBum.Art. In order to get all that rock music out of our heads following last week's Status Quo week, we've been listening to some 70s disco. This track by Machine did a great job of washing all those nasty distorted guitars from our speakers

      • In The Army Now - Status Quo
        10/11/13
        Concluding our week of Status Quo cover remixes sent in by Mark Hodson of England is this for their 1980s album (and single of the same name) In The Army Now. The original cover shows, what presumably is meant to be the members of the band, in their ol' rag blues (denim jeans to you and me) ra

      • Don't Drive My Car - Status Quo
        09/11/13
        In case you're wondering why we have had so many cover remixes of the English rock band Status Quo, it's because we received an e-mail from Mark Hodson who supplied us with enough album artwork to have a whole week of covers by the band. The original cover for Don't Drive My Car show

      • Ol' Rag Blues - Status Quo
        08/11/13
        Our Status Quo week, brought to you courtesy of Mark Hodson of England moves into the 1980s with this remix of their song Ol' Rag Blues. Mr Hodson says that although it has always been fashionable to wear ripped denim, he feels that the original cover is now too 80s and that a modern version w

      • Rain - Status Quo
        07/11/13
        And another in this week's remixes of Status Quo songs sent in by Mark Hodson of England. In this one, Rain, Mr Hodson says:In the song, the Quo sing that they can't live without the rain. Now we all know plants need rain, but for a rock band, there must be a different reason why rain is

      • Down Down - Status Quo
        06/11/13
        Yet another in this week's series of remixes of single covers by Status Quo sent in by Mark Hodson of England. Apparently Down Down was one of their biggest hits but Mr Hodson feels that what they are singing about is the lowering of knickers and that the cover does not reflect this. So he ha

      • Living On An Island - Status Quo
        05/11/13
        Another in the series of remixes of Status Quo covers sent to us by Mark Hodson of England. Mark says:I don't know which island the Quo were thinking of, but the kind of island I would like to live on is one where there are loads of fit birds with their kit off.
        We're not exactly sur

      • Paper Plane - Status Quo
        04/11/13
        We got a long letter from Mark Hodson of England who said he had been 'inspired' by the AllBum.Art web-site to remix a number of covers for one of his favourite British bands, Status Quo. Attached to Mr Hodson's e-mail were no fewer than 6 sets of remixed covers for songs by the band

      • Skiing In The Snow - Wigan's Ovation
        03/11/13
        What were we on? Planet snowski? The fact is that faced with a cool picture of a chick in a ski scene who is about to get very cold due to her less then skimpy ski suit then a remix of a cover was essential. Sadly the only song we could find that covered both snow and skiing was a completely obscur

      • God Is A DJ - Faithless
        02/11/13
        If God Is A DJ, as British band Faithless would have us believe, what would the cover of a single proclaiming this look like? Would it have a picture of a bald-headed black guy with his arms by his side and his arms closed? Maybe it would, after all: God moves in mysterious ways. However we prefe

      • Stupid Girl - Garbage
        01/11/13
        The original cover for the 1990s single Stupid Girl by Garbage deserves to go where the band's name suggests, in the trash can. Has there ever been a less interesting cover for a single whose title holds out so much promise? Probably not. So the AllBum.Art team has remixed it to show what th
