      • Yummy Yummy Yummy - Ohio Express
        27/11/15
        Yummy, Yummy, Yummy, I've got love in my tummy. Do rhymes come any more farcical than that? Not if you're Ohio Express. How do they choose to illustrate this yumminess on the original single front cover artwork? The simple answer is that they don't. They just have the name of the

      • Rust - Echo And The Bunnymen
        26/11/15
        Echo And The Bunnymen are singing about oxidized metal on their single Rust, but the cover of the single shows no evidence of any metal, let alone any which is rotting away. Instead we find the lead singer in a sad pose. On the much more happy remix, we find a smiling babe who is squatting on some

      • It Takes Two - Rod Stewart And Tina Turner
        25/11/15
        So, what have we here? Tina Turner and Rod Stewart no less. And what is it that Ms Turner and Mr Stewart are telling us? Why, It Takes Two, no less, no more. It is nice of them to give us this advice but the bigger question is what it is that it is that takes two. The remix offers us one possib

      • Kiss The Rain - Billie Myers
        24/11/15
        Aha, so when Billie Myers tells us to Kiss The Rain, what she means it that we should stand against a wall with a dim blue-grey light casting darkening shadows. Great, if that's your thing. For us, however, we would be much more inclined to kiss the aforementioned rain if there was something

      • Dove (I'll Be Loving You) - Moony
        23/11/15
        The original cover artwork for Dove (I'll Be Loving You) by Moony leaves so many questions unanswered that it may as well be blank, except for the title of the song and the artist. Oh, wait a cotton-picking minute, it is blank other than the title of the song and the artist (and a few of the r

      • Open Up Your Love - The Whispers
        22/11/15
        The rexponse to the firxt of our 'Remi-XXX-es' has been mixxxed. Some liked the more risqué approach, others thought that it was a step too far. Let's try a second one and let us know whether you think these should continue or cease. It's the turn of The Whispers and their alb

      • Ordinary Angels - Frente
        21/11/15
        Have you ever heard of Frente? No, nor had we, but we're always keen to find songs where we can remix the cover artwork to show babes dressed as an angel, so Ordinary Angels by Frente meets our exacting criteria. To be fair to the band, the original cover does show a very ordinary angel and a

      • Oral Tradition - Greo
        20/11/15
        Here at AllBum.Art we try and abide by the submission guidelines that we have set for other. But occasionally, a piece of work comes along that is so desperate to be remixed that it would almost be a crime to do so, even if it breaks the rules. Oral Tradition, the 2015 album by Greo, is just such a

      • Hot And Wet (Believe It) - Tzant
        19/11/15
        We kind of like the original cover of Hot And Wet (Believe It) by Tzant as it hints at the notion of naughtiness by having a dominatrix clad babe hiding behind a do not disturb motel door sign. Like it, but not love it. The remix shows a babe who is hot and wet. Hot because she is a babe. Wet be

      • I'll Fly For You - Spandau Ballet
        18/11/15
        Another day, another remix about flying. The original cover of I'll Fly For You by Spandau Ballet shows a hairy-chested coal mine worker pretending to fly by holding out his arms in the shape of ineffectual wings. The remix shows an air hostess who is inviting us on board her aircraft. Would y

      • Return Of The Los Palmas 7 - Madness
        17/11/15
        Another remix from those nutty London boys, Madness. Return Of The Los Palmas 7 sees the boys being badly drawn as cartoons on the front cover of the artwork for their single. Los Palmas, if you weren't aware, is apparently the British equivalent of Palm Springs, and we have thus remixed the

      • Embarrassment - Madness
        16/11/15
        How can you show your face when you're a disgrace to the human race? That's what Madness sing in their single Embarassm.. nope, we mean Embarrasm... no that's not right either. Is it one 'r' and two 's's or what? Oh, right, it's two 'r's and two &#

      • All Around My Hat - Steeleye Span
        15/11/15
        Have we remixed a folk song before? We honestly can't remember, but All Around My Hat by Steeleye Span is unashamedly folky. The original cover looks like the band have been on some kind of mind melting medications. The remix is much more folky and far more straightforward and instead of the

      • Autumn Dreams - Sky Motion
        14/11/15
        Another autumn (or fall for those who speak the president's English and not the queen's) themed remix. When Sky Motion sing of Autumn Dreams, a glacial forest lake is not the first thing that springs to mind (get it, spring - it's another season). What is summoned (OK, not quite sum

      • Forever Autumn - Justin Hayward
        13/11/15
        Two remixes of the same song, no less. Yes, we have already remixed an earlier version of Forever Autumn, but today it is the turn of Justin Hayward to face the remix treatment. Mr Hayward's version comes from the epic musical, War Of The Worlds. On the original cover we find a scene from th

      • Welcome To The Dance - Des Mitchell
        12/11/15
        Welcome To The Dance... inside the dance you will find a blurry beach and... err... well, a blurry beach. What more could you want from the dance? Well, Des Mitchell, when we are welcomed to the dance, we expect much more than a blurry beach. We expect some kind of dancing display of some kind, p

      • Blue (Da Ba Dee) - Eiffel 65
        11/11/15
        When you are casually surfing the internet and you find a picture of a topless girl painted blue (as you do), what is your first thought? Here at AllBum.Art, it is, 'ooh - there ought to be a good use for this photo to remix the cover artwork of a song'. And the song we have remixed usin

      • Nude - Radiohead
        10/11/15
        Some tracks lend themselves to remixes much more than others, and when we find a track whose name is Nude, we know a remix must be born. On the original cover of this track by Radiohead, we find what appears to be a drawing of a dark path through an overgrown forest. On the remix we see a similar

      • Absolute Beginners - David Bowie
        09/11/15
        Another remix for glam singer David Bowie. On the original cover of his single Absolute Beginners, we find Mr Bowie standing around by the banks of a river in black and white. For what it's worth, we don't believe that Mr Bowie is a beginner in that kind of stance. On the remix we find

      • Electric - Lisa Scott-Lee
        08/11/15
        Electric is the name of both a single and an album by Lisa Scott-Lee (whoever she is). We just chose it because we had a great picture of a kind of robotic cyborg type babe standing around against what look like some kind of electric cables. When hunting for some artwork to remix, we found this si

      • Garage Days Part II - Metallica
        07/11/15
        Today's AllBum.Art remix is for Metallica's album Garage Days Part II (or Garage Days Re-Revisited Part II to give it its full mane). The original cover shows... well not much at all, just the Metallica logo, a stylized skull and cross-bones, and the title of the album. The remix shows a

      • Lucky Man - Verve
        06/11/15
        A Lucky Man is the subject of this song by the Verve. And maybe the guy on the original front cover of the single is lucky, though you need to use your imagination a little to understand why. Why? Because all that can be seen from the cover is that there is a guy, walking down a deserted street.

      • Magic Mandrake - Sarr Band
        05/11/15
        In the days of vinyl, record sleeve designers had two options: 1. Cover up the hole in the middle. 2. Let the hole in the middle be used as part of the cover. In this case they chose option 2 and on the cover of Magic Mandrake by Sarr Band, we find a babe in red high heels, pulling her gold pantie

      • Crashed The Wedding - Busted
        04/11/15
        What would you expect to see if you Crashed The Wedding? Well, according to Busted, it would be a photo-frame of the band themselves doing donkey-rides against a shoddy back-drop of some icebergs. What that has got to do with weddings is anyone's idea. Well, clearly it's someone's

      • Achilles Heel - Toploader
        03/11/15
        You remember the story of Achilles Heel? It was the weak-spot that led to the downfall of a mighty warrior. So when Toploader sing about it, you would expect the cover of their single to somehow reflect the story, instead of just containing a picture of the band members loafing around in a flowery

      • Waiting - Green Day
        02/11/15
        What were Green Day waiting for? That is the question we need to answer today. From the cover of their single, the only thing that is clear, is that nothing is clear at all. Perhaps they are waiting for someone to turn on a light, to illuminate the source of their loitering. Whatever the case, t

      • What's New Pussycat - Tom Jones
        01/11/15
        Does the potential for remixing a song cover artwork come on any bigger plate than a song called What's New Pussycat. So thank you to Tom Jones for offering up this large dinner plate of a remix. On the original we see Mr Jones looking very, well, very ordinary. On the remix we see a babe dr
