      • Naked And Sacred - Maria Nayler
        30/11/17
        When you release a song whose title is Naked And Sacred, as Maria Nayler has done, you ought to think more carefully about what should go on the front cover artwork. For example, the picture of the babe wearing a miter but otherwise nude on the remix would be an example of what would reflect the so

      • Cutt Off - Kasabian
        29/11/17
        What would you expect to find on the front artwork for Cutt Off by Kasabian? Maybe it is what might just, if you squinted at it in the right light, appear to be a man's face covered in a cloth, with his forehead all stripey like. That is clearly what the band thought when they put the single

      • What I Got Is What You Need - Unique
        28/11/17
        What I Got Is What You Need is the bold statement made by Unique. And if what it is that you need happens to be a white triangle against a backdrop of a pink and yellow square, then the original single cover artwork does, indeed, have what you need. So in that sense, the addition of a babe who does

      • Strip Me - Natasha Bedingfield
        27/11/17
        When you issue an instruction such as Strip Me, as Natasha Bedingfield has done, you would expect the front cover of the album to allude in some way or other to the act of stripping. On the original artwork we don't find any evidence of this. On the remix, something not at all unexpected has

      • Angel - Eurythmics
        26/11/17
        Another remix for Eurythmics, this time for their single Angel. On the original cover artwork we find the lead singer in monochrome. Is that all it took in the early 1990s to become angelic? We don't know. But we do know that on the remix, the monochrome theme is continued, but that the bab

      • Who's That Girl - Eurythmics
        25/11/17
        The odd thing about the question Who's That Girl, when considering the original single artwork by Eurythmics, is that the only female on the cover is cross-dressing as a boy, beard and all. On the remix we find three babes who seem intent on flashing their asses at us. One of the girls is sti

      • Wrapped Up - Olly Murs Featuring Travie McCoy
        24/11/17
        Apparently, Olly Murs Featuring Travis McCoy are Wrapped Up. We say 'apparently' because there is no evidence of any wrapping going on, unless you count a shirt and a coat, but that's not really much wrapping in the grand scheme of things. On the remix we find a babe who is wrapped

      • Highly Strung - Spandau Ballet
        23/11/17
        Another remix for those new romantics, Spandau Ballet. On the original single cover artwork for Highly Strung, we find a blonde haired woman who appears more to have been roped than strung, but we will let them off this. But there isn't a lot of string, or rope, involved. On the remix, we fi

      • Too Close - Blue
        22/11/17
        What is Too Close for Blue? Maybe it is the photographer, though he seems to have framed the band fairly well on the original front cover artwork. Maybe it is the band who are too close to each other. Either way, on the remix, we find two babes who are also standing close to each other but whethe

      • Cosmic Girl - Jamiroquai
        21/11/17
        What does a Cosmic Girl look like according to Jamiroquai? We have no idea, because on the original single cover artwork, there is nothing except a silhouette of the singer surrounded by what are presumably meant to be cosmic orbit rings. On the remix we find a real cosmic babe, standing in the co

      • Breaking The Law - Judas Priest
        20/11/17
        Judas Priest have been very naughty, they have been Breaking The Law. Oddly, on the original single cover artwork there is no evidence of their law breaking, other, perhaps, than their awful red leather pants which are criminal. On the remix there is also no law breaking going on, but the babe enf

      • You Stole The Sun From My Heart - Manic Street Preachers
        19/11/17
        What happens when You Stole The Sun From My Heart? If the original single front cover artwork by Manic Street Preachers is to be believed, all that happens is that you see a sunset. On the remix we find a babe who has also had the sun stolen from her heart at sunset, but has also had her clothes s

      • Too Shy - Kajagoogoo
        18/11/17
        It seems that Kajagoogoo are Too Shy not only to show themselves on the original front cover artwork of their single, but they are so shy, that there is nothing on the front cover other than the title of the song and the name of the artist. On the remix there is a babe who is quite shy, but perhap

      • Take My Hand - Jurgen Vries Featuring Andrea Britton
        17/11/17
        Oh dear... When Jurgen Vries featuring Andrea Britton produced the original single cover artwork for Take My Hand, they clearly had brain-freeze about what to put on it, because other than the name of the artist and the title of the song, they didn't put anything else at all. On the remix we f

      • Behind Closed Doors - Thunder
        16/11/17
        What happens Behind Closed Doors? Well, according to the original album cover artwork by Thunder, we don't know because, assuming that the weird colored thing is meant to be a door, it is closed. On the remix we go the other side of the closed door, a hotel door no less (we can see the '

      • Walking In Rhythm - The Blackbyrds
        15/11/17
        The Blackbyrds are apparently Walking In Rhythm. We say apparently because on the original single cover artwork the band are not actually walking, but are loafing around in some kind of rundown neighborhood. On the remix we find four babes who are walking, but if you look closely, it seems they ma

      • Falling Down - Oasis
        14/11/17
        Britpop rockers Oasis feature for today's remix of their single Falling Down. On the original cover artwork we find some kind of weird flower, dart board, army, Shakespeare combo. On the remix, we find a babe whose towel is falling down. Why there is a white apple on the window ledge is anoth

      • Falling Apart At The Seams - Marmalade
        13/11/17
        Poor Marmalade, it seems they are Falling Apart At The Seams. At least that is what their single is titled, but on the original front cover artwork the clothes the band are wearing do not seem to be damaged in any way. On the remix we find a babe whose clothes have already nearly been torn in two.

      • Can You Dig It - The Mock Turtles
        12/11/17
        When The Mock Turtles ask a question such as Can You Dig It? We would expect that the original single cover artwork might give an indication of what it is that they are expecting us to dig. On the remix we find out more about the situation. It seems there is a pile of dirt that needs digging, but

      • If I Could Fly - Grace
        11/11/17
        Grace is asking a good question when she questions If I Could Fly. If she could fly, she might look a little different to the image on the original single front cover artwork. She might, in reality, look more like the babe on the remix who has swapped her business-like suit, for some flowing wings

      • Showroom Dummies - Kraftwerk
        10/11/17
        Not content with The Model, Kraftwerk also bring us some Showroom Dummies. To be fair to the band, on the original single cover artwork, they do look rather fake, but probably a little too realistic to be real mannequins. On the remix we find three showroom dummies who are all naked. One is a mann

      • Fire - Kasabian
        09/11/17
        There is surely nothing like a Fire to warm you up on a cold autumn evening, is there? Well if the original single cover artwork that Kasabian produced was to be our guide, that would not be the case. On the remix, though, we find a babe who is obviously being warmed by the fire behind her, to the

      • Hey Ya - Outkast
        08/11/17
        Hey Ya by Outkast is known by many people as 'shake it like a Polaroid', which is why we thought that the original single cover artwork could handle a bit of a remix. On the original cover we find the two band members in a combination of yellow and pale blue outfits. On the remix is a ba

      • Pictures Of Lily - The Who
        07/11/17
        Whilst we are in a Lily kind of vibe, here's a remix of Pictures Of Lily by The Who. The original single cover artwork shows us the band members who may or may not be looking at pictures of lily, or any other kind of water-based flora we can not tell. On the remix is another babe who has ende

      • Lily Was Hear - David A Stewart Featuring Candy Dulfer
        06/11/17
        Who is David A Stewart and why is he featuring Candy Dulfer? And why is it that Lily Was Here? All or none of these questions may or may not be answered by the original single cover artwork, depending on your artistic outlook. For us it's all far too amorphous. So instead we remixed the cov

      • Surfin' Bird - The Trashmen
        05/11/17
        If you never saw it, then before even thinking about reading any further, go and watch the piece from Family Guy concerning 'mass awareness of a certain avian variety', go watch it now. Then come back and think about what a Surfin' Bird is. To us it's simple. It's a cute su

      • Star Girl - McFly
        04/11/17
        If we were to use the original single cover artwork for Star Girl by McFly as a guide to the nature of the song, we would be lost as there are no stars and no girls. In fact, one of the band members looks very confused as he is scratching his head. On the remix we find a babe who we presume is the

      • On My Own - Patti Labelle And Michael McDonald
        03/11/17
        In a way, we know that Patti Labelle And Michael McDonald are prone to telling falsehoods. How do we know this? Simply because their duet is called On My Own. Surely On Our Own would be more accurate. The odd original single cover artwork shows the two artist separated by a pink tear and a monoch

      • Wherever I Lay My Hat - Paul Young
        02/11/17
        Paul Young tells us that Wherever I Lay My Hat (That's My Home). Now in principle that might be a reasonable ethos to live by, but in today's society it would make a bit of a mockery of buying a house. If Mr Young can just walk in and take it over by laying his hat down, then what's

      • Losing My Religion - R.E.M.
        01/11/17
        Maybe it's no surprise that R.E.M. are singing about Losing My Religion so soon after Halloween, which is why the original single cover artwork requires a special triple-play remix. On the original cover we find the lead singer looking sad. Perhaps he is sad at having lost his religion? On th
