      • All I Want For Christmas Is You - Mariah Carey
        24/12/13
        Not the first Christmas remix for Mariah Carey, but perhaps the most famous. This is for her 1994 single All I Want For Christmas Is You, in which we see Ms Carey in the same outfit and snowfield as her Merry Christmas album. In the remix, we see something equally desirable, and certainly the kind

      • Warm This Winter - Gabriella Cilmi
        23/12/13
        Warm This Winter by Gabriella Cilmi is a cover version of the Connie Francis song. And one good cover deserves another! In the original cover we see Ms Cilmi in what might be a wintery scene, though it's difficult to tell as she's holding an umbrella. In the remix we see a girl who has g

      • Lonely This Christmas - Mud
        22/12/13
        A Holiday hit that's been covered so many times that a remix of the cover seems highly appropriate. This version of Lonely This Christmas is the original one from British glam rock band Mud. The original cover sees the band stood all alone in the middle of the cover. The remix has a girl who

      • I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday - Wizzard
        21/12/13
        Wizzard claim that they Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday. We at AllBum.Art are not sure we do. For one, all the shops are closed so there is no chance to buy anything. Everyone would starve and the economy would grind to a halt. On the other hand, given the number of chicks who seem to be will

      • Hey, Mister Christmas - Showaddywaddy
        20/12/13
        One of those 1970s Christmas songs that you don't hear very often, Hey, Mister Christmas was a not particularly well known hit for glam rock gurus Showaddywaddy. The original cover sees what we can only assume to be Mr Christmas wearing jeans and carrying a guitar. In the remix, a different M

      • Home For Christmas - Maria Mena
        19/12/13
        A lovely lilting lullaby of a song, Home For Christmas is by Norwegian act Maria Mena. On the original cover we see Ms Mena standing in a forest at night with a dress hanging off her shoulders. In the remix, night has become day and in that period it appears the dress has fallen off completely lea

      • I Need You For Christmas - Inna
        18/12/13
        Following yesterday's Romanian revelation, we were idly searching the Internet for Romanian pop stars and came across Inna. Remixing the cover of her 2009 single I Need You For Christmas is easy when there are so many sexy pictures of her all over the web. In the original version we see Inna

      • Have A Cheeky Christmas - The Cheeky Girls
        17/12/13
        According to Simon Dexter of Truro, England, The Cheeky Girls are two Romanian babes who became to fame on a British talent show singing a song about 'touch my bum'. They also released a Christmas song in 2003 called Have A Cheeky Christmas. The original cover shows the girls (who are si

      • Feliz Navidad - José Feliciano
        16/12/13
        It wouldn't be the Holidays in downtown Puerto Rico (or anywhere else in Latin America for that matter) without the strains of Feliz Navidad ringing out. This version by José Feliciano is the standard version against which all other version are measured. The original cover shows Mr Feliciano

      • We Wish You A Merry Chrismtas - Ferrante & Teicher
        15/12/13
        Ferrante & Teicher? Never heard of them? No, us neither but since when has that stopped us remixing the cover of someones single or album. This is their 1996 album (of piano based jingling) called, inventively, We Wish You A Merry Christmas. They have the right idea, with a pretty girl in a S

      • Joy To The World - Michael Bolton
        14/12/13
        Joy To The World was a mini-album (or EP) by incredulous crooner Michael Bolton. The original cover has Mr Bolton looking ludicrous singing earnestly against a backdrop of snow covered trees. But lo! It seems that the cover has been airbrushed - the correct version has one of Mr Bolton's fan

      • Wintersong - Sarah McLachlan
        13/12/13
        Wintersong was a 2006 album by Canadian singer Sarah McLachlan. On the cover we see Ms McLachlan looking very wintery in a snowy scene in a floaty white dress, eh? The remix is equally wintery but the difference is that it seems the lady in the picture has foregone the wearing of the floaty white

      • Keep Warm - Jinny
        12/12/13
        Not exactly a Holiday hit, but one that deserves to come out in the Winter. Those crazy 1990s dance acts - Jinny was apparently Italian. And apparently the way they Keep Warm is to wear over-sized ballet shoes. In terms of warmth, they must be about as cozy as standing around in the snow wearing n

      • The Christmas Album - The Manhattan Transfer
        11/12/13
        Rat-ta-tat-ta-tat is probably the most famous lyric uttered by The Manhattan Transfer but their style of relaxed harmonic chirping is ideally suited to melodic Christmas moaning and on The Christmas Album, that is what they surpass themselves at. The cover is odd in that it is Christmassy but also

      • Please Come Home For Christmas - Bon Jovi
        10/12/13
        Another seasonal remix for Bon Jovi, this time for their 1994 single Please Come Home For Christmas. The original cover is a case of 'what is wrong with this picture'. It shows Mr Jovi kissing a cute babe. But, and here's the issue, if he is kissing her, who exactly is it that he w

      • I Wish Everyday Could Be Like Christmas - Bon Jovi
        09/12/13
        I Wish Everyday Could Be Like Christmas was originally a B-side for Bon Jovi but was later released as a single in its own right. The original cover shows the Bon Jovi broken heart with a vaguely Holiday feel to it. The remix shows what we think Mr Jovi would rather everyday was like at Christmas.

      • In The Bleak Midwinter - Bert Jansch
        08/12/13
        As is so often the case with obscure songs of long ago, the original cover is difficult to find. The 'original' cover for In The Bleak Midwinter by Bert Jansch is therefore a remix in itself, being the cover of his album The River Sessions on which the song can be found. The remix is, we

      • It's Christmas Time - Status Quo
        07/12/13
        Not content with his very own Status Quo week, Mark Hodson of England has supplied us with yet another remix of a cover by his favorite band. The original cover of It's Christmas Time sees the band hanging up their electric guitars on a tree. The remix shows pin-up queen Bettie Page hanging u

      • Sleigh Ride - The Ronettes
        06/12/13
        Ring-a-ling-a-ling... This version of the Holiday hit Sleigh Ride comes to us courtesy of The Ronettes. We have had to use a little poetic license for this remix, as there is no original cover to remix. So we have invented one! The original shows the band in their seasonal skirts, sitting on a wa

      • Step Into Christmas - Elton John
        05/12/13
        Continuing the festive frolics, here's a remix of Elton John's classic Christmas choon entitled Step Into Christmas. There are a number of original covers for this but our remix focuses on one that is, to put it least, a bit lacking in festive cheer. It's just Mr Dwight, and that�

      • Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town - Bruce Springsteen
        04/12/13
        Just how many cover versions of songs is it possible to make cover remixes of? Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town was originally recorded in 1934 but this remix is of the 1978 version by Bruce Springsteen (no stranger to AllBum.Art). Instead of Santa, a reindeer, a hippo and a bird singing in a ba

      • Winter Wonderland - Aretha Franklin
        03/12/13
        Another of those Holiday songs that has been sung by a cast of thousands, Winter Wonderland is a seasonal classic. This version is sung by Aretha Franklin and the cover for the song shows Ms Franklin in a suitably festive outfit. Our remix of the cover is also suitably festive and relays more of th

      • O Tannenbaum - Various Artists
        02/12/13
        The song O Tannenbaum is the German name for O Christmas Tree and has been sung by so many artists that instead of picking on one particular one, we have just remixed a generic cover taken from an ancient album on the Decca record label. Instead of the winter scene on the Rhine, you can see instead

      • Sleigh Ride - Spice Girls
        01/12/13
        Ho, ho, ho, and here we go for the first of the holiday remixes. This song by the Spice Girls is just one of the many recordings of Sleigh Ride. This one was the B-Side of their single 2 Become 1 which was a Christmas hit in 1996. Officially there is no cover but there was a promo released with a
