      • The Best Christmas Of Them All - Shakin' Stevens
        27/12/17
        Wouldn't you credit it, Shakin' Stevens brings us another attempt at making it The Best Christmas Of Them All, which according to the original single cover front artwork simply requires Mr Stevens to stand singing into a microphone wearing a red suit and black shirt. On the remix we impro

      • Christmas With McGriff - Jimmy McGriff
        26/12/17
        Another seasonal remix, this time for Jimmy McGriff and his holiday album Christmas With McGriff. On the original album front cover artwork we find a babe sitting on a stool dressed in a Santa outfit. Not much has changed on the remix other than that there is noa w different babe wearing a seasonal

      • Christmas Day - Barrington Levy
        25/12/17
        Barrington Levy brings us this year's Christmas Day song, with his song of exactly that name. What could be more apt? On the original cover we find what Mr Levy refers to as a shine eye gal. On the remix we find a similar gal, but who is sitting in front of the tree on Christmas Day with her

      • Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) - Darlene Love
        24/12/17
        It's Christmas Eve and what better song to get us into the festive spirit than Baby (Please Come Home) by Darlene Love? On the original artwork we find Ms Love in a fetching shade of violet but with very little of the season's festivities about her. On the remix we find a babe in a Santa

      • Your Christmas Wish - The Smurfs
        23/12/17
        As Christmas approaches, we bring you another festive remix, this time from The Smurfs and their Christmas Wish. It seems that what the Smurfs wish for at this time of year is to float around underneath a mushroom with a bag of presents. That might be OK, but it's not what we wish for. Inste

      • Naughty Christmas (Goblin In The Office) - Fat Les
        22/12/17
        It's the last working day before Christmas this year, and probably the last day in the office for many. It therefore seems appropriate that today's remixed artwork is for Naughty Christmas (Goblin In The Office) by Fat Les. The original single cover shows a babe holding some mistletoe th

      • Santa's Got A Brand New Bag - Gary Walker
        21/12/17
        Santa's Got A Brand New Bag, at least that is what Gary Walker tells us. On the original single front cover artwork we find Santa going about his festive business. It looks like he could do with a new bag as the one he has seems to have a patch stitched on it. On the remix we find a bunch of

      • Sleighbell Rock - Chuck Blevins
        20/12/17
        On the original single cover artwork for Sleighbell Rock by Chuck Blevins we find some bells, and the silhouette of Santa's sleigh being pulled along by the reindeer - very seasonal! On the remix we find a babe sitting on a sleigh with her bells on show. The sleigh seems a little too small to

      • Chill Out - John Lee Hooker
        19/12/17
        We give full marks to John Lee Hooker for the original album front cover artwork of Chill Out as we find on it a scene in which Mr Hooker is relaxing on a comfortable chair by what appears to be a tropical beach. On the remix we find a babe who seems equally relaxed but who is taking a dip in a fro

      • Winter - Cord
        18/12/17
        When Cord sing about Winter on their single (and album of the same name) we expect more on the cover than a girl holding a bear standing around in front of a newsagent, but that is what is found on the original cover artwork. On the remix we find three babes who are also standing around and one of

      • Winter Song - Chris Rea
        17/12/17
        On the original single cover artwork for Winter Song, we find Chris Rea apparently getting soaked by water pouring over him from a tuba floating above his head. What exactly this has gotten to do with winter remains as mysterious as the Bowler Hat being held by Mr Rea. On the remix we find a babe w

      • Red Hot - Vanessa-Mae
        16/12/17
        You might wonder why we are remixing Red Hot by Vanessa-Mae in December? Let's begin by examining the original single cover artwork where we find Ms Mae posing provocatively in red whilst some flames lick at her body. Not that Decembery you might think. On the remix we find a bane who is als

      • Storm Front - Billy Joel
        15/12/17
        When we first saw the original album cover artwork for Storm Front by Billy Joel, we had to investigate whether it had any connection with storms. It turns out that the red flag with a black square in it is a nautical flag meaning that storms are on the way. So thumbs up for that. On the remix, t

      • Snowflakes - Toni Braxton
        14/12/17
        Toni Braxton brings us an album that she titles Snowflakes. Now it might just be us, but we would have at least expected that on the original album cover artwork, there might actually have been some snowflakes visible that would reflect its name. Thankfully this has been resolved on the remix, as

      • Hazy Shade Of Winter - The Bangles
        13/12/17
        Today's question is what is a Hazy Shade Of Winter? According to The Bangles, it might be black, as that is the color that all of the band members are wearing on the original single cover artwork. On the remix we find a babe standing outside in the snow, so it's almost certainly winter.

      • My Gift To You - Alexander O'Neal
        12/12/17
        Alexander O'Neal sends us My Gift To You, which is very kind of him. On the original album cover artwork we find Mr O'Neal standing outdoors on a snowy street with olde worlde lights shining on the dark, arctic scene. All very good, but where's the gift. It seems that the gift has

      • Wintertime - The Belmonts
        11/12/17
        OK, so it's not yet Wintertime, neither in the northern nor southern hemispheres, but here in the northern part, it's beginning to get quite cold and so this remix of The Belmonts seems appropriate enough. On the original single cover artwork we find the band members looking quite dapper

      • Broken Down Angel - Nazareth
        10/12/17
        Back to the wintery remixes as we consider Broken Down Angel by Nazareth. Not only does the name of the band have biblical connotations, but the title does too, because it mentions angels which is one of our favorite topics. On the original single cover artwork we find nothing more than the band me

      • Fantasy Island - M People
        09/12/17
        We're on a bit of a roll at the moment with remixes of artwork from M People and today we bring you one of our legendary triple-plays. On the original single cover we find the lead singer of the band lying down among some clearly fake grass and plants. Could this be on a Fantasy Island, as th

      • Don't Look Any Further - M People
        08/12/17
        So when M People were singing Don't Look Any Further, what they seemed to have in mind was the notion that you would stop looking for whatever it was you were searching for, when you found a pink sofa. For some people that may be true, but let's make it more compelling and add a babe to th

      • One Night In Heaven - M People
        07/12/17
        Would you like to spend One Night In Heaven with M People? Perhaps you need some information about what it would be like? Well, according to the original single cover artwork, it would be like a distorted version of the German flag, with some badly drawn squiggles on it. Or there is the remix, wh

      • Bizarre Fruit - M People
        06/12/17
        While we are with M People, here's another remix. This time it is of the artwork for their album Bizarre Fruit. On the original cover we find the band members walking around an art gallery, some of whom are inspecting paintings of fruit done in an artistic style. That seems reasonably bizarr

      • Dreaming - M People
        05/12/17
        M People are Dreaming, or at least that is what the title of their single would lead us to believe. Strangely, the cover artwork tells us a different story as all of the band members appear to be awake, so unless they are day dreaming, then none of this makes any sense (nor incidentally does gwackm

      • Take 5 - Northside
        04/12/17
        Exactly where we find artwork to remix is a bit of an unknown, especially when we remix songs like Take 5 by Northside which achieved the dizzy heights of number 40 in the British charts. Why have we remixed this obscure song, simply because we had a great photo of five babes and needed a song with

      • (In The) Cold Light Of Day - Gene Pitney
        03/12/17
        Gene Pitney sings to us in his melodious fashion about what happens (In The) Cold Light Of Day. But all we learn from the original single cover artwork is that Mr Pitney owns a brown suede jacket and green slacks (isn't that what they were called in the 60s?) On the remix we find a babe stand

      • Metal Guru - T-Rex
        02/12/17
        Another remix for 70s glam rockers T-Rex and their single Metal Guru. On the original cover artwork we find a fuzzy haired Mr Bolan, the title of the song and of course the name of the artist. No metal. On the remix we find a babe dressed all in silver, and done in a relatively stylish way, so whe

      • Life Got Cold - Girls Aloud
        01/12/17
        Brr.... It's December and the days are getting shorter, and the nights longer (which isn't always a bad thing). Here we find that Girls Aloud are of a similar mind as they tell us that Life Got Cold. On the original single cover artwork, though, they don't look that cold, even if one
