      • All I Need Is A Miracle - Mike And The Mechanics
        31/03/18
        We are struggling to understand why Mike And The Mechanics would think that All I Need Is A Miracle based on the artwork on the original front cover of their single, which simply shows a gas station mechanic dozing while sitting on a couple of tires and with an opened yet full bottle of Coke next to

      • Hotshot - Shaggy
        30/03/18
        Shaggy has decided that on the original front cover artwork for his album Hotshot, the best thing to show would be his own face in slightly warm colors such as yellow, orange and red. On the remix we find a babe who is shooting heat from, it would appear, a flame-thrower. We think that this qualifi

      • Shake A Tailfeather - Ray Charles
        29/03/18
        Shake A Tailfeather is the name of this song by Ray Charles (though it is often mistakenly called Shake Your Tail Feather). On the original cover we find Mr Charles looking very cheerful and the reason why is revealed on the remix, where we find a happy looking hottie shaking a tail-feather in fron

      • The Boat That I Row - Lulu
        28/03/18
        Lulu sings about The Boat That I Row. There isn't, though, much evidence of what kind of boat this is on the original single front cover artwork, though we do find Ms Lawrie looking somewhat forlorn into the distance - maybe that is where her boat is. On the remix we find a babe who is standi

      • Offshore - Chicane
        27/03/18
        What happens Offshore? According to the original single front cover artwork from Chicane, some aircraft chem-trails, or are they pieces of string holding up some cloth triangles? Not at all clear. On the remix, what happens offshore is that some shapely babe lounges around in a bikini off the sid

      • Apparently Nothin' - Young Disciples
        26/03/18
        Apparently Nothin' seems to be precisely the amount of effort that went in to the original front cover artwork for this single from The Young Disciples, though to give them an ounce of credit, they did make the word 'disc' in a different color. On the remix we find a busty babe who i

      • The Bottle - Paul Weller
        25/03/18
        There are so many routes we could have taken when remixing the single front cover artwork for The Bottle by Paul Weller. Although there is a bottle pictured on the original cover, it's rather subtly hidden among some jumbled up letters. On the remix there is also a subtly placed bottle, thoug

      • Sucker - Charli XCX
        24/03/18
        Charli XCX (which isn't a proper Roman numeral in case you were wondering) indicates that somewhere there should be a Sucker. On the orignal album front cover artwork we find a lollipop, so you can see how that might relate to the title. Now there is, of course, an obvious remix for this but

      • Dance With The Devil - Cozy Powell
        23/03/18
        Dance With The Devil, is what Cozy Powell tells us that we should be doing. On the original single front cover artwork, Mr Powell helps us visualize this by smoking a cigarette in black and white. On the remix we find a devil who is dancing, tempting us to join in. Beware though, because it's

      • Sit And Wait - Sydney Youngblood
        22/03/18
        Sydney Youngblood is asking us to Sit And Wait. In order to help us to understand why, the original single front cover artwork shows Mr Youngblood in what we can only assume to be his most pleading pose. On the remix, we find a babe who has followed his instructions and who is sitting and waiting

      • Red Sun Rising - Lost Witness
        21/03/18
        Today is traditionally the spring solstice, meaning it is the first day of spring, so we thought something springlike would be appropriate. Our remix of the day is for Red Sun Rising by Lost Witness. On the original single front cover artwork there is a red sun rising, so full marks for that. On

      • Up Against The Wall - Tom Robinson Band
        20/03/18
        The Tom Robinson Band (or TRB for short) are Up Against The Wall. From the original single front cover artwork we can surmise that this means they are standing in their school uniforms in front of a graffiti covered brick wall, so lots of detail there to help us visualize the song for once. On the

      • Baby Get Higher - David Sneddon
        19/03/18
        David Sneddon is requesting that his Baby Get Higher. On the original single cover artwork, we see Mr Sneddon but there is no sign of his baby, and it is immensely unclear what kind of higher he wants her to get: pharmaceutically, physically, spiritually. On the remix we find a babe who is in a go

      • If Everybody Looked The Same - Groove Armada
        18/03/18
        Groove Armada raise the notion of what the world might be like If Everybody Looked The Same. However, they reflect this ponderance by showing the tracks of some vehicles across a muddy area on the original single front cover artwork. To help understand what the situation might be more like, the re

      • Drunken Lullabies - Flogging Molly
        17/03/18
        'Tis St Patrick's day once again so here is an Irish flavored remix. The original single (and album) cover artwork for Drunken Lullabies from Flogging Molly seems to show an old guy walking down a narrow alleyway. On the remix we find a babe who may or may not be called Molly, but who se

      • Cover Up - UB40
        16/03/18
        Some bands provide far more opportunities for remixing their single or album cover artwork than others, either as they are prolific, or that the titles of their songs lend themselves to a good remixing. Being one such band, this is the 8th remix of a song by UB40 on the AllBum.Art web-site. It is

      • You're A Superstar - Love Inc
        15/03/18
        Another triple-play from the team at AllBum.Art. The original single front cover artwork for You're A Superstar by Love Inc does, as it happens, contain a number of stars but other than that doesn't help identify why we, or anyone should consider themselves super. On the first remix we f

      • You Keep Me Hangin' On - The Supremes
        14/03/18
        Today's triple-play comes from The Supremes and their single You Keep Me Hangin' On. On the original single cover artwork, we find the three band members pouting at us but no evidence of any hangin' goin' on. On the first remix we find a babe who is adept at dancing on a pole a

      • Bad - Michael Jackson
        13/03/18
        Michael Jackson proclaims himself to be Bad, which is at odds with the views here in the AllBum.Art office, as most of us generally agree that the so-called king of pop was, in reality, quite good. Maybe Mr Jackson is referring to the rather odd jacket he is wearing which has far too many buckles o

      • (Waiting For) The Ghost Train - Madness
        12/03/18
        Madness are (Waiting For) The Ghost Train. The odd thing, then, about the original single front cover artwork is that the train that is on the platform in front of them appears, to all intents and purposes, to be solid and not made of ectoplasm. On the remix we find a solitary babe who is walking a

      • Too Much - Spice Girls
        11/03/18
        There are those who say that there is no such thing as Too Much, but the Spice Girls are not among them. On the original single front cover artwork, though, the girls give us no indication of what they consider to be to much. On the remix we find one possible answer to this in the form of a babe w

      • West End Girls - Pet Shop Boys
        10/03/18
        West End Girls is a classic song by the Pet Shop Boys, but until we received this user-submitted remix by Simon Andrews of London, we didn't know what it meant. Apparently, the West End, is part of London in England where all the rich chicks hang out. On the remix Simon has provided us, we se

      • Shock To The System - Billy Idol
        09/03/18
        Another remix for rock rebel Billy Idol. On the original single front cover artwork for Shock To The System, it seems that Mr Idol has been captured by the Borg, and turned into some kind of cyborg. That must have been a shock to his system. On the remix we find a babe who is wrapped in electric

      • Hold Me In Your Arms - Rick Astley
        08/03/18
        Hold Me In Your Arms was both an album and a single for Rick Astley. On the original cover artwork, we can't even see Mr Astley's arms, just his head and collarbones. On the remix we find a babe who is being held in the arms of what is presumably her boyfriend or husband. He seems to be

      • Good Times - Chic
        07/03/18
        Nothing beats a bit of Chic when it comes to Good Times, but based on the original single front cover artwork, you wouldn't think that the band were actually having much of a good time, as they stand around looking rather unhappy. On the remix we find a bunch of babes who are definitely having

      • Me And Mrs Jones - Billy Paul
        06/03/18
        Me And Mrs (Mrs) Jones, is who Billy Paul sings about. On the original single front cover artwork, we can see Mr Paul, but not Mrs Jones. On the remix we find out more about Mrs Jones, as she appears to be a buxom older lady who is not shy about showing off her assets. We can see why Mr Paul and t

      • Sultans Of Swing - Dire Straits
        05/03/18
        What exactly are Sultans Of Swing, and can Dire Straits help us to answer this question? On the original single cover artwork, we find Mr Knopfler with his guitar (at least we believe that is what is shown). Does the glowing headband represent the fact that he is a sultan? Probably not. On the re

      • The Wanderer - Status Quo
        04/03/18
        Status Quo are one of the most remixed artists here at AllBum.Art. They seem to have a big fan base among our British visitors who send us lots of cover artwork they have worked on. This one comes from Mark Hudson who tells us that the original cover for The Wanderer, though it shows a guitar case

      • The Chinese Way - Level 42
        03/03/18
        Having taken lessons in love from Level 42, let us allow them to instruct us on what The Chinese Way is. On the original single cover artwork, our learning is that the Chinese way is to look vaguely afro-american but wear a red hat and carry a fan with some Chinese characters on it. On the remix,

      • Busting At The Seams - Strawbs
        02/03/18
        Bursting At The Seams, that is what Strawbs sing about. Whilst they are singing they had their picture taken and put on the original front cover artwork of their album. But which seams are bursting? We think the remix answers this question, as we find a babe whose ample bosom is proving a little

      • Walk Away - Joyce Sims
        01/03/18
        Joyce Sims is telling us to Walk Away. But other than a photo of Ms Sims, there is next to nothing on the original single front cover artwork that indicates what we should walk away from, or why. On the remix these problems are fixed. What we should walk away from is a mature granny who is flaunt

      • Raise Your Hands - Big Room Girl Featuring Darryl Pandy
        28/02/18
        What would you expect to see on the original cover artwork of a single titled Raise Your Hands, by a band called Big Room Girl Featuring Darryl Pandy? That's a fair questions to ask. The answer is nothing, other than the title of the song, the name of the band, and the logo of the recording c

      • Come As You Are - Beverley Knight
        27/02/18
        Today's instruction from Beverley Knight is to Come As You Are. This instruction is so important to her, that it is the title of both her album and single. On the original cover artwork we find Ms Knight dressed up ready to go and visit the President taking her own advice and not bothering to

      • Free Me - Cast
        26/02/18
        Free Me, that is what Cast ask to be done. On the original single cover artwork, we find a butterfly in a cage, though if you look closely, it seems that the cage door is open, so there is no real need for the butterfly to be freed as it can just fly away. On the remix we find a babe who has been

      • My Special Angel - Malcolm Vaughan
        25/02/18
        Nothing beats a good angel remix, and My Special Angel by Malcolm Vaughan is no exception. On the original single cover artwork we find Mr Vaughan looking casually over his shoulder at something but no sign of any angels. On the remix we find a special angel. We know she is special as her wings a

      • I Think Of You - The Merseybeats
        24/02/18
        I Think Of You, at least that is what The Merseybeats sang. On the original front cover artwork of their single, we find the band members staring at something, but what can it be that they are thinking of? That much is not clear. On the remix we find a babe of their era who is on the telephone an

      • Bad Ass Strippa - Jentina
        23/02/18
        Hello Jentina. And hello to your single Bad Ass Strippa. The thing is, and we don't want to sound ungrateful in anyway, but we kind of expected that on the original front cover artwork, given the name of your song, that we might expect to see an ass, but we give you seven out of ten for prete

      • Kenny - The Bump
        22/02/18
        We expected a lot more from The Bump by Kenny when it comes to the original front cover artwork for the single. What we expected was at least some indication of what the bump is, instead of which we get an empty speech bubble and a hairy guy wearing a t-shirt with bump written on it. Maybe the rem

      • Luton Airport - Cats UK
        21/02/18
        There aren't many songs about airports, but Luton Airport by Cats UK is one of them. The original single front cover artwork seems to show the band with their luggage, but are they at Luton Airport or some other airport? On the remix we find a babe who also has her luggage but is most certain

      • One Kiss From Heaven - Louise
        20/02/18
        Aaah... One Kiss From Heaven. That is all you need in life. Though, if the original single front cover artwork by Louise is to be believed, the only thing that she is offering is a smouldering look. No kisses, and no heaven. How disappointing. On the remix we find an angel (a popular theme here

      • Hooverville (And They Promised Us The World) - The Christians
        19/02/18
        Apparently the residents of Hooverville promised us the world, or so The Christians would make us believe. Now we are not sure what you would expect a town with a name like Hoovervill to look like, but according the original single front cover, it is a fairly dreary place with derelict buildings an

      • End Of The Line - Honeyz
        18/02/18
        So the Honeyz claim to be at the End Of The Line, do they? On the original single cover artwork there is no indication of what kind of line it is, nor why they are at the end of it, as opposed to the start or somewhere in the middle. On the remix we find a babe who is sitting on what appears to be

      • Send Me The Pillow You Dream On - Johnny Tillotson
        17/02/18
        On the original front cover artwork for Send Me The Pillow You Dream On, Johnny Tillotson is smiling and holding two pillows, one in each hand. So why does he want another pillow? On the remix, the answer may become a little clearer as we find a babe holding a pillow which, if she handed it over t

      • We Ride - Rihanna
        16/02/18
        An unusual thing here, because here is a remix for Rihanna and her song We Ride. Unusual, because we have already remixed this cover back in July 2013 but we just felt it deserved a double dose (either that or we forgot we had already done it...) On the original front cover artwork of the single,

      • Am I On Your Mind - Oxygen Featuring Andrea Britton
        15/02/18
        Today's question is being posed by Oxygen Featuring Andrea Britton, and the question is Am I On Your Mind? To help us decide whether or not they are on our mind, the original front cover artwork for the single shows a front and rear shot of Ms Britton on a city street at night time. On the re

      • Valentine - Delays
        14/02/18
        It's 14 February which is traditionally known as Valentine's Day, so here's a remix of a song called Valentine by the Delays. On the original single cover artwork, we find that nothing says I love you as much as some black and white wires. Nothing. Well maybe not nothing. Maybe the

      • Wishing I Was Lucky - Wet Wet Wet
        13/02/18
        According to Wet Wet Wet, when they were Wishing I Was Lucky, the first thing that sprung to their mind when putting together the original single front cover artwork was a dark city street, with pictures of the band members strewn on a dirty wall in a haphazard fashion. On the remixed artwork, we f

      • Bad Habit - ATFC Presents OnePhatDeeva Featuring Lisa Millet
        12/02/18
        We are not sure what springs to your mind when a song has the title of Bad Habit, but for ATFC Presents OnePhatDeeva Featuring Lisa Millet, it is a bunch of babes dancing in the vicinity of a number of Dukes Of Hazzard era cars. Just some good old boys, never did any wrong. As opposed to the nun on

      • My Perfect Cousin - The Undertones
        11/02/18
        If the original single front cover artwork is to be believed, My Perfect Cousin, according to The Undertones reaches perfection through playing Subbuteo soccer. Maybe that is what counts for perfection where they are from, but at AllBum.Art we seek a little more from our perfection. On the remix w

      • Dancing Girls - Nik Kershaw
        10/02/18
        Bring on the Dancing Girls, sings Nik Kershaw. He may sing that, but on the original single front cover artwork we find nothing but Mr Kershaw. Maybe he is waiting for the dancing girls to arrive? On the remix we find that the girls have arrived and appear to have begun dancing around a gold color

      • Walking In The Rain - Modern Romance
        09/02/18
        You may have noticed that the guys here at AllBum.Art have a number of favorite topics when it comes to remixing single and album artwork, in particular angels, and people caught in the rain. So they jumped at the chance to remix Walking In The Rain by Modern Romance (and not because it had an ange

      • In For The Kill - La Roux
        08/02/18
        It is feasible, we suppose, that when La Roux put together the original single cover artwork for In For The Kill, they thought that some dry ice and an aging sports car would suffice to give the impression of menace. On the remix we find a babe who is far less subtle in her murderous intentions as

      • Eton Rifles - The Jam
        07/02/18
        Another remix for British mod band, The Jam that has been submitted by Mr Confiture of England (not his real name we suspect) who has sent us his versions of Eton Rifles. Mr C tells us that:Eton is a posh place where toffs go to school, so if it has rifles they would be held by posh women drinking

      • Good Enough - Dodgy
        06/02/18
        What is Good Enough for Dodgy? According to their original single cover artwork, a sunflower is good enough for them. Fair enough. On the remix we find a babe who appears to have made an attempt to trim her bush and is showing it to someone in a way that begs the question, is it good enough. The

      • Size Isn't Everything - Bee Gees
        05/02/18
        We are not quite sure what the Bee Gees were thinking with their original cover artwork, unless they were thinking that showing a fish-eye distorted picture of the band members standing around by a palm tree in front of a white building somehow reflected the title of the album. On the remix we find

      • The Morning After - 8 Wonders
        04/02/18
        It seems that a lot of dance music (EDM) acts including 8 Wonders who, for their original single cover artwork, came up with nothing more inventive than showing the title of the song, the name of the band, and the logo of the record company. On the remix, we find a babe who has clearly had a bit of

      • She's Kinda Hot - 5 Seconds Of Summer
        03/02/18
        While we're remixing single artwork from 5 Seconds Of Summer, here's another one for She's Kinda Hot. On the original cover, the only 'she' that is visible is a cheerleading fox with crossed out eyes. All very confusing. On the remix is an older babe who normally wouldn&#

      • She Looks So Perfect - 5 Seconds Of Summer
        02/02/18
        According to 5 Seconds Of Summer, She Looks So Perfect, but we can't see on the single cover artwork, who she is, and why they would think she looks so ideal. On the remix, the missing part of the original picture has been added in and we find that she looks almost perfect, bending over the sp

      • Use Your Imagination - Mud
        01/02/18
        Another triple-play to start the month here at AllBum.Art. We kind of like the original album cover artwork for Use Your Imagination by Mud, as that is clearly the instructions that they gave to their designer. On the first remix, we are to us our imagination to guess what happens next. On the se

      • Wishing (If I Had A Photograph Of You) - A Flock Of Seagulls
        31/01/18
        A Flock Of Seagulls bring us a song called Wishing (If I Had A Photograph Of You), but they also bring us an original single front cover whose artwork shoes an empty photo frame and a vase of roses. What they obviously needed was someone to take a photograph for them, so that they could put it in t

      • Crush - Paul Van Dyk Featuring Second Sun
        30/01/18
        Poor Paul Van Dyk (Featuring Second Sun) has a Crush. We say he is poor because the original single front cover artwork doesn't show anything to have a crush on, so we can only assume that he has a crush on getting his hand wet. On the other hand, the guy in the remix isn't doing much bet

      • Pretty In Pink - Psychadelic Furs
        29/01/18
        The Psychadelic Furs lead us to believe that someone, or something, is Pretty In Pink. But the only thing that is pink on the original single cover artwork is the title of the song. And there isn't anything that would be classed as particularly pretty. On the remix we find a babe who is prett

      • Satellite - Hooters
        28/01/18
        We all know what Hooters refers to these days, but in 1987 they were a rock band, go figure! The original single cover artwork for Satellite has neither any modern day hooters, nor any kind of space hardware. On the remix we find a babe standing amidst a range of satellite dishes and there is evid

      • Sexy Girl - Lillo Thomas
        27/01/18
        Lillo Thomas seems to think that standing in his long overcoat, scarf and hat will somehow lead us to think of a Sexy Girl, as the original single front cover artwork shows. This doesn't work for us, so we remixed it and on the remix we find a sexy girl. No scarf, no hat, just a t-shirt and a

      • Naughty Naughty - John Parr
        26/01/18
        John Parr is apparently not just naughty, but Naughty Naughty (is that double naughty?) Peering at us from over the collar of his leather jacket as he appears on the original single front cover artwork, he looks more cheeky than naughty. On the remix we find one babe who appears to be chastising a

      • Colours Of The Rainbow - Alesha Dixon
        25/01/18
        Come on. If you're going to have a single called Colours Of The Rainbow (note the quaint British spelling), at least have more than one color on the original front cover artwork of your single, Alesha Dixon. The remix is more the kind of thing you needed, with a babe wearing multi-colored soc

      • We Came To Dance - Ultravox
        24/01/18
        Ultravox inform us that We Came To Dance, but is that something you would have understood had you looked at the original single front cover artwork? Or would you think that the song is about mountains? On the remix we find two babes who have got their ballet gear on and are limbering up and as far

      • Sailor - Petula Clark
        23/01/18
        Yesterday the band was called Sailor, today it is the turn of Petula Clark to sing a song with that name. On the original single cover artwork we find nothing more than a picture of Ms Clark but no evidence that she is near a boat, or sailing ship, or anything of that ilk. On the remix we find a b

      • Girls Girls Girls - Sailor
        22/01/18
        Would you not think that when Sailor set about to produce the original single cover artwork for Girls Girls Girls, that they might just have thought about putting some girls on it? Here at AllBum.Art, that's the first idea that crossed our minds which is why, on the remix you find lots of girl

      • The Garden - Zero 7
        21/01/18
        What exactly Zero 7 were trying to indicate on the original front cover artwork for their album The Garden is not clear. It seems to illustrate a patchwork of pieces of paper with random designs on them. On the remix we find a babe happily watering her garden using her cute blue watering can. It

      • Bad Animals - Heart
        20/01/18
        In a way, the original album front cover artwork for Bad Animals by Heart does at least depict some animals, that are quite badly drawn, so kudos to them for that. On the remix we find some other animals (the green one is maybe a lizard, the black and white one a zebra, we are not sure what the pur

      • Angelia - Richard Marx
        19/01/18
        Another remix for Richard Marx, this time for his song Angelia. On the original single cover artwork we see that Mr Marx is standing holding his guitar. This begs the obvious question of who Angelia is, unless, of course, it is in fact the name of his guitar. On the remix we find an angel of a ba

      • Right Here Waiting - Richard Marx
        18/01/18
        Another triple-play for you today, from none other than Richard Marx and his song Right Here Waiting. On the original single front cover artwork we find Mr Marx leaning against a wall, and to be fair to him, it does appear that he is waiting for something or other. On the first of the remixes, we f

      • One Drink Too Many - Sailor
        17/01/18
        We think Sailor may have had One Drink Too Many when putting together the original single front cover artwork for their song as we find the band members standing around with their instruments but with no drink in sight. On the remix we find a babe with a bottle in her hand, glugging down what seems

      • Just Can't Get Enough - Depeche Mode
        16/01/18
        Whilst we are on the subject of Depeche Mode, here's yet another remix, this time for the front cover of their single Just Can't Get Enough. On the original artwork we find some kind of mummy, or failing that, a man badly wrapped in bandages at what must have been some kind of highly rudi

      • Dreaming Of Me - Depeche Mode
        15/01/18
        Back in March 2016, we had a whole week of Depeche Mode remixes, but that doesn't stop us dropping a few new ones in the mix from time to time. Today it is the original single front cover artwork for Dreaming Of Me that hits the news-stands. On the original cover we find a babe with a long po

      • Turn Around - Phats & Small
        14/01/18
        Turn Around (or Hey What's Wrong With You as it is sometimes sub-titled) is by Phats & Small whose original single front cover artwork tells us that they are on Multiply Records, but nothing about who or what is turning around or, even, why. On the remix we find two babes out for a cycle o

      • Doctorin' The House - Coldcut
        13/01/18
        We are Doctorin' The House with Coldcut (Featuring Yazz & The Plastic Population). The original single front cover artwork is a handy blur of orange and aqua blobs that really does not in any way convey any kind of medical message that might be associated with the song. On the remix we fi

      • Free As The Morning Sun - Mr Hermano
        12/01/18
        It may seem odd to be remixing a summer sizzler in January, but it's nice to be cheered by some warm sunshine in these dark, cold times of the year (and it is, of course, summer in the southern hemisphere). The original front cover single artwork for Free As The Morning Sun by Mr Hermano doesn

      • The Winter Wonder - The Florin Street Band
        11/01/18
        Yes, it's still cold outside and so the perfect time for another wintery remix, this time for The Florin Street Band and their single (well E.P. actually) The Winter Wonder. On the original single front cover artwork we find a suitably wintery scene with holly berries and that. On the remix w

      • Keep The Fire Burning - Gwen McCrae
        10/01/18
        We wonder whether today's remix artist Gwen McCrae is in any way related to yesterday's remix artist George, but we are too lazy to put their names into a search engine to find out. Anyway, today's triple-play remix of Keep The Fire Burning shows that the original single front cover

      • Rock Your Baby - George McCrae
        09/01/18
        On the original single front cover artwork for Rock Your Baby, we find George McCrae lounging around against a wooden fence. It seems he is not rocking, though it is a still photo, but there is definitely no baby, babe or other diminutive person around. On the remix we find a babe, or baby, who is

      • Get Out Of Your Lazy Bed - Matt Bianco
        08/01/18
        When a band such as Matt Bianco sings a song entitled Get Out Of Your Lazy Bed, we expect a little more from the original single cover artwork than a moody picture of the band members. What we do expect is a bed, with someone in it, who is clearly lazy and doesn't want to get out (or is is the

      • Your Mirror - Simply Red
        07/01/18
        So Simply Red want to sing to us about Your Mirror do they? This is odd, as on the original single cover artwork, there are no mirrors visible, just the lead singer standing in front of a sunset (or is it a sunrise?) On the remix we find a babe examining her outfit in a mirror. Is it her mirror,

      • Kisses Sweeter Than Wine - Frankie Vaughan
        06/01/18
        Another triple-play from us good folk at AllBum.Art, and this time for Frankie Vaughan and his single Kisses Sweeter Than Wine. On the original single front cover artwork we find Mr Vaughan standing holding what appears to be some fishing rope. Where are the kisses, or the wine, you are no doubt a

      • Starry Eyed Surprise - Oakenfold
        05/01/18
        On the original single cover artwork for Starry Eyed Surprise by Oakenfold we find a female mannequin wearing a black and white face mask and whose body has been covered in silver paint. How do we know it is a mannequin - check out the arms where you can see the join to the hand! On the remix we f

      • Hypnotised - Paul Oakenfold
        04/01/18
        Another remix for Paul Oakenfold and this time it's a triple-play. On the original single cover artwork for Hypnotised, we find the great wall of China which does have a certain hypnotic charm. On the first remix we find a babe sitting on a bed. We are not sure if she has been hypnotized, or

      • Faster Kill Pussycat - Oakenfold Featuring Brittany Murphy
        03/01/18
        Wouldn't you expect that on the original front cover artwork of a single called Faster Kill Pussycat, there would be some kind of feline figure to see? Well, according to Oakenfold Featuring Brittany Murphy, the silhouette of a city skyline is far more the kind of thing. Not so for the remix,

      • This Year's Love - David Gray
        02/01/18
        This Year's Love is what David Gray sings about and being January, we were keen to see how this year's love differed from last year's. However, the original single cover artwork does not help with this as all we find is a picture of Mr Gray looking, well, for want of a better word, g

      • What's Another Year - Johnny Logan
        01/01/18
        What's Another Year? That is what Johnny Logan asks us. How timely is his question as we enter a new year? How odd, then, that on the original single cover artwork we find Mr Logan looking less than happy. For the remix we've gone all HG Wells and we find a babe sitting on a time machin

      • 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

      • 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

        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

        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

        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

        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

        Woooo.... It's Halloween, which means it's time for another remid from our collection of Halloween Hits, and this time it's the turn of Night Of Fear by The Move. On the original single cover artwork we find the band members who, to be fair to them, do look quite scary. On the remix

      • Creep - Radiohead
        30/10/17
        As Halloween approaches, the remixes on AllBum.Art get creepier. And none more so than this remix of Creep by Radiohead. On the original single cover artwork we find what appears to be a poor rendition of JFK smoking a cigarette with a zip for his mouth. If that (and Radiohead's music) isn&#

      • Season Of The Witch - The Vanilla Fudge
        29/10/17
        Odd combination don't you think? A band called Vanilla Fudge which sounds all gooey and sweet, singing a song called Season Of The Witch which sounds anything but gooey and sweet. The original single cover artwork showcases the gooey and sweet faces of the band members. The remix goes in a di

      • No Angel - Dido
        28/10/17
        As we approach halloween, things are beginning to take a turn for the macabre here at AllBum.Art. Here we find Dido singing about being No Angel. The thing is, we can see so little of her through the Dido shaped keyhole on the original single cover artwork that whether she is an angel or not remai

      • To France - Mike Oldfield
        27/10/17
        Another remix for Mike Oldfield. On the original single front cover artwork for To France, we find a very blurry and obscured picture of Mr Oldfield. Why this would in any way represent France, or even a journey to said country, is unknown and unclear. On the remix we find a babe who has complete

      • Stool Pigeon - Kid Creole And The Coconuts
        26/10/17
        Another remix for Kid Creole And The Coconuts. Today it is the turn of their classic song Stool Pigeon. It is fair to say that the coconuts that Mr Creole has with him on the original single front cover artwork are generally rather appealing, there is just no sign of any kid of stool. Hence on th

      • Waterfall - Atlantic Ocean
        25/10/17
        Is that a Waterfall on the original single front cover artwork of this song by Atlantic Ocean? The thing is, it's difficult to tell because of the rather odd shading of red and beige that's been applied to the picture. On the remix we find a babe standing beneath a waterfall and again the

      • Purple Haze - Groove Armada
        24/10/17
        We kind of understand what Groove Armada were trying to get at with the original front cover artwork of their single Purple Haze. Though why exactly the long purple spliff they have illustrated has a lightbulb screw cap on the bottom is less than obvious. On the remix we find a babe dressed in an

      • Ten - Gabriella Cilmi
        23/10/17
        An album called Ten by none other than Gabriella Cilmi, no less. Now the question is what it is that Ms Cilmi is trying to suggest can be categorized as a ten on the original front cover artwork. Is it that she is a size ten? Or that she rates herself as ten out of ten? We don't know. On t

      • Big Girl (You Are Beautiful) - Mika
        22/10/17
        Big Girl (You Are Beautiful) is what Mika tells us. And to give Mika some credit, on the original single cover artwork, there is indeed a big girl who appears to be dancing wearing a corset and boots. Is she beautiful? Difficult to tell. On the remix we find a girl who is clearly big in those ar

      • Bring Me Your Cup - UB40
        21/10/17
        Bring Me Your Cup, is what UB40 tell us to do. The simple fact is that if we use the original single cover artwork to guide us on what we might receive in return for bringing our cup, it seems to be a very mixed bag, consisting of at least two naked women, some blue and white splodges and lots of to

      • Splish Splash - Bobby Darin
        20/10/17
        Splish Splash, I was takin' a bath. That is how Bobby Darin opens this classic 50s rock 'n' roll song. On the original single cover artwork, on the other hand, it seems very unlikely that Mr Darin is taking the aforementioned bath, as he is wearing a thick jumper. Unless that is ho

      • Better Off As Two - Frankmusik
        19/10/17
        We agree with Frankmusik when they tell us that we are Better Off As Two. The original single cover artwork shows two babes holding hands but someone has, for no apparent reason other perhaps than artistic effect, blurred them up a bit. On the remix we find two girls who are holding each other rat

      • Hats Off To Larry - Del Shannon
        18/10/17
        Whilst we're doing hats, here's a cheeky remix of Hats Off To Larry by Del Shannon. On the original single cover artwork we find Mr Shannon in a very tessellated state, smiling at us in a 60s style. On the remix we find a babe who would be in trouble if Mr Shannon found her because she h

      • Hat Full Of Stars - Cyndi Lauper
        17/10/17
        We would probably score the original album cover artwork for Hat Full Of Stars by Cyndi Lauper close to 100% as it features the artist, holding a hat against a starry backdrop and so all the elements are present. The remix would actually score less, as it doesn't feature Ms Lauper but instead

      • Higher Ground - UB40
        16/10/17
        Another remix for reggae rockers UB40. The original single cover artwork for Higher Ground, if you look closely, appears to show a naked girl standing somewhere fiery and who has been splattered with black paint (or maybe it's soot from the fire). On the remix things are vastly simplified as

      • It's So Quiet - Bjork
        15/10/17
        Bjork is well known, especially among those less familiar with her work, as being odd. It may therefore come as no surprise that on the original single cover artwork for It's So Quiet, what we see appear to be some noisy trumpets and a couple of silver coated musical notes. On the remix it is

      • Apply Some Pressure - Maximo Park
        14/10/17
        Whilst we are on the subject of laundry, here's a remix of the original cover artwork for Apply Some Pressure by Maximo Park. On the original we find that possibly the air pressure has increased to such an extent that the man pictured is finding it hard to breathe. On the remix the situation

      • Laundry Service - Shakira
        13/10/17
        What do you expect from your Laundry Service? If it is one provided by Shakira, it will be no more than having Ms Ripoll come and sit looking a bit pouty, at least that is what the original album cover artwork tells us. On the remix we find a far more practical laundry service, as a babe is doing t

      • Take It Off - Ke$ha
        12/10/17
        Take It Off by Ke$ha is regarded in those circles where such things are understood, to be a 'party anthem'. Now it looks, from the original single cover artwork, as if the kind of party concerned involves dressing in leopard skin stockings and painting your face in what can only be descri

      • Give It Back - Polly Paulusma
        11/10/17
        Here is Polly Paulusma telling us to Give It Back. So what is is that Ms Paulusma is requesting to be returned? The original single cover artwork does not make this very clear, unless someone has had a sip of her bourbon. On the remix we find a babe who is trying to get her friend (if it is her f

      • Burn - Ellie Goulding
        10/10/17
        Um... There seems to be a problem with the picture on the original single cover artwork of the single Burn by Ellie Goulding. Although some may believe that the picture of Ms Goulding is hot, there are no signs of flames or any other indication that the temperature in the scene is anything other th

      • Over My Shoulder - Mike And The Mechanics
        09/10/17
        Looking back... Over My Shoulder, is how Mike And The Mechanics begin this song, however the original single cover artwork shows the band members clearly looking forward rather than to their rear. On the remix we find a babe with a very picturesque rear who is looking back over her shoulder at us.

      • Pussyole (Old Skool) - Dizzee Rascal
        08/10/17
        I bet your mind is twenty steps ahead when you saw that we were remixing Pussyole (Old Skool) by Dizzee Rascal. The original cover artwork for the single shows Mr Rascal (if that is indeed his name) pitching for a fight. On the remix, we know what you might have been expecting but alas, no, not th

      • She Wears Red Feathers - Guy Mitchell
        07/10/17
        Whoa - this is going way back in time to 1953 - for the remix of the original cover artwork for She Wears Red Feathers (And A Huly-Huly Skirt) by Guy Mitchell. On the original cover we find Mr Mitchell smiling nonchalantly but no sign of anyone wearing any kind of feathers or huly skirt. On the re

      • Vintage - Michael Bolton
        06/10/17
        When Michael Bolton put together the original cover artwork for his album Vintage, it seems that his one guiding principle was to ensure that his face was front and center, no doubt reflecting his aging years and vintage status. Or perhaps the album was meant to be called Visage, not Vintage. Anyho

      • Sheet Music - 10cc
        05/10/17
        We can see what 10cc were trying to do with the original album cover artwork for Sheet Music, as they have pulled in the border surrounding the picture of the band members into the middle of the cover to make it look as if it is a sheet. Nice try. On the remix we just find a babe resting underneat

      • Love Comes Quickly - Pet Shop Boys
        04/10/17
        Apparently, Love Comes Quickly when you wear a hat with the word 'Boy' on it, at least that is what the original single cover artwork by the Pet Shop Boys tells us. On the remix, not a great deal has changed, except that instead of there being a boy wearing a hat with the word boy on it,

      • Lethal Industry - DJ Tiesto
        03/10/17
        It seems, if the original single cover artwork for Lethal Industry by DJ Tiesto is to be believed, that what proves deadly in an industrial environment is some hand-scrawled words on a page full of red and yellow blobs. On the remix we find an alternative view, and we can immediately see the danger

      • Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey) - De La Soul
        02/10/17
        Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey) is a song by De La Soul (talk about stating the obvious). The original single cover artwork suggests that the ring in question is one on the telephone. The remix suggests that the ring in question is possibly a wedding (or engagement) ring, as we find a bride gazing long

      • October Swimmer - JJ72
        01/10/17
        It's October, so what more would you want to do with your days than become and October Swimmer, at least that is what JJ72 tell us. Sadly whilst they tell us that, they don't show us, as on the original single cover artwork we find just a blur of sludge. On the remix we find a babe who i

    • July
      • Turn Me On - Kevin Lyttle
        31/07/17
        Let us briefly examine the original front cover artwork for Turn Me On my Kevin Lyttle. Is there any sign of anything that is, or could be, a turn on? For example, is there a switch or electrical actuator of any type. Seems not. On the remix this is solved as we find a babe whose profession is a

      • This Summer - Squeeze
        30/07/17
        What shall we do This Summer? Why don't we sit on some deck chairs fully dressed and get a tan only on our faces? That is what Squeeze are suggesting we do, if the original front cover artwork of their single is to be believed. On the remix we find a different view of this summer, which larg

      • Dummy - Portishead
        29/07/17
        Is that a Dummy pictured on the original front cover artwork of this album from Portishead? It looks more like a zombie than a dummy, and the blurry nature of the shot doesn't help clarify the truth. On the remix the truth is much clearer, as we find a naked babe who is real, and another who

      • The Weekend - Michael Gray
        28/07/17
        Another remix for Michael Gray. We are not sure what goes on at The Weekend where Mr Gray lives, but it seems to involve going into the office to watch a sexy secretary dance around the Xerox machine. On the remix we have taken this one step further and gone into the stationery cupboard and instea

      • Rainforest - Paul Hardcastle
        27/07/17
        Dear Paul Hardcastle,

        The next time you release an album and want someone to help with putting the artwork together, please get in touch.

        The original cover for your album Rainforest fails on so many fronts, it isn't worth thinking about. Where is the rain, and where is t

      • Me And You And A Dog Named Boo - Lobo
        26/07/17
        Now think about this... Me (OK, got that) And You (with you so far) And A Dog Named Boo (and your point)? Well the first point is that on the original cover artwork for Me And You And A Dog Named Boo there is no me, and no you. Also isn't it a bit of a coincidence that the dog's name rhy

      • Nothing - A
        25/07/17
        Yes, believe it or not, there is (or was) and band called A who sang a song whose title was Nothing. You can't make this stuff up. On the original single cover artwork we find the letter A, the word nothing and some band members in black and white, which is almost nothing. On the remix we fi

      • Wet Dream - Max Romeo
        24/07/17
        We are not completely sure what Max Romeo was thinking of with the original single cover artwork for his song Wet Dream, but we think we may get the idea. Why, however, he would resort to a picture of some 1800s era titillation consisting of a babe and her bike for his wet dreams we are not sure.

      • Walking Away - Craig David
        23/07/17
        It might just be us, but we fail to see how the original front cover single artwork for Walking Away by Craig David could picture Mr David in a pose where he is in any position to walk. Not least he has his eyes closed which can make walking very hazardous, but he also appears to be leaning back sl

      • Don't Do It Baby - Mac & Katie Kissoon
        22/07/17
        Mac & Katie Kissoon sing us a song titled Don't Do It Baby. That's OK, we like a good song. But the original single front cover artwork does not give us any indication whatsoever as to what it is that the baby shouldn't do. The remix helps with this as we find a babe trying to c

      • The Climb - Miley Cyrus
        21/07/17
        To be completely honest, we don't know why Miley Cyrus didn't already think of the obvious picture to go on the original front cover single artwork for The Climb, given her propensity for taking her clothes off and doing dangerous stuff with wrecking balls and all that. But no, just a pic

      • Show Me You're A Woman - Mud
        20/07/17
        The title of this song by Mud is Show Me You're A Woman, but on the original single front cover artwork there is neither any evidence of this question being asked, nor of anyone trying to answer it as all we find are the band members looking a bit glum (except the guy on the left who seems far

      • Lady Rose - Mungo Jerry
        19/07/17
        What a terrible original single cover from Mungo Jerry an their song entitled Lady Rose. It simply consists of a photo of the band members looking sullen against a red background, with some extraneous colored shapes designed to make it look as if they are sitting in what looks like a urinal. Thank

      • Barefootin' - Robert Parker
        18/07/17
        We get the idea of the original single cover artwork for Barefootin' by Robert Parker, which is that some three footed person has painted their feet a different color then walked across the cover. A nice try for sure, and it must have been difficult to have found someone with three feet. On t

      • Sexy - MFSB
        17/07/17
        So let's see now, MFSB's idea of what to put on the original single front cover artwork for a song called Sexy is some roses floating in the wind above the sea. Maybe that's what classes for sexy in Philadelphia? On the remix we find a sexy looking babe, who is pouting in a sexy way

      • Joyride - Roxette
        16/07/17
        What does a Joyride look like? According to Roxette, it looks like an elephant, some light bulbs and some nondescript theater scenery props. Not for AllBum.Art! For us, it looks like an old fella being ridden by a young girl who is way above his pay grade. Then again, maybe he has paid for this

      • My Friend The Sea - Petula Clark
        15/07/17
        My Friend The Sea is who Petula Clark sings about. Good for her! But on the original single cover artwork, if Ms Clark is standing near the sea, this is not clear as the beach is totally out of the shot. On the remix we find a babe who is definitely good friends with the sea and we know this beca

      • You Got What It Takes - Showaddywaddy
        14/07/17
        Showaddywaddy tell us that You Got What It Takes, but the original single cover artwork tells us only one thing - that whoever designed it didn't have what it takes. Thankfully, we here at AllBum.Art have got what it takes, to remix artwork that is. On the remix we find a babe who has got what

      • I Can Prove It - Phil Fearon
        13/07/17
        So Phil Fearon thinks that he is so good that he sings I Can Prove It. Who does he think he is, Einstein? According to the original front cover artwork for his single, he is having a double take at some babe wearing high heel stiletto court shoes. What does that prove? On the remix he is looking

      • Spotlight - Jennifer Hudson
        12/07/17
        The one thing that seems to be missing from the original single front cover artwork of Spotlight by Jennifer Hudson is much light. Whilst Ms Hudson's face is lit, if that is by a spotlight then it is clearly in need of a new bulb. On the remix we find a babe who is in an equally dark place bu

      • 18 With A Bullet - Pete Wingfield
        11/07/17
        Pete Wingfield sings about someone who is 18 With A Bullet in this single, but on the original cover artwork we just find Mr Wingfield himself reading a magazine in his kitchen (it looks like he might be eating breakfast). So who is this mysterious 18 year old, and what's the story with the bu

      • Love Me Love My Dog - Peter Shelley
        10/07/17
        Whilst we are in a doggy-related mode, here's another canine remix. We give Peter Shelly several bonus points for appearing on the original front cover artwork of his single Love Me Love My Dog, with his mutt. On the first remix we find another babe who loves her dog, so much so in fact that

      • Hounds Of Love - Kate Bush
        09/07/17
        Another remix for Kate Bush, this time for her 1985 album Hounds Of Love. On the original album cover artwork we find Ms Bush lying down with two mutts who she seems to like, so nearly full marks for sticking to the brief and showing off the singer and the title of the album. On the remix we find

      • Pretty Little Angel Eyes - Showaddywaddy
        08/07/17
        We are not sure which member of the band has the Pretty Little Angel Eyes that Showaddywaddy are referring to and singing about in their single. Is it one of the the guys wearing sunglasses maybe as the rest of the band look about as angelic as a bored dachshund eating mold from a toiled bowl. On

      • Horny Horns - Perfect Phase
        07/07/17
        The original single artwork for Horny Horns by Perfect Phase is one of those front covers that suggests that the band weren't really expecting the song to be a hit (which it wasn't really) as no effort has been made to represent anything to do with the band or the song at all. Thank goodn

      • Get Up And Boogie - Silver Convention
        06/07/17
        We give Silver Convention half marks for the original single cover artwork of Get Up And Boogie. Why only half? Well full points for having the band members on there. Half marks as only two of them are wearing silver. And no marks for the fact that none of them appear to be having a boogie, or a

      • Let It Rain - 4 Strings
        05/07/17
        Not necessarily a request that everyone would endorse but 4 Strings want to Let It Rain. There are occasions when such a request might have merit but the original single cover artwork doesn't indicate this, instead we just see the singer and no indication of the level of precipitation. On the

      • American Dream - Jakatta
        04/07/17
        It's the Fourth of July, so we thought we would do something patriotic and remix the cover artwork for a song with an American theme. American Dream by Jakatta seemed like the ideal choice. Not only was the original cover artwork so bad, but the remix is so good. What could be more dreamy fo

      • Superabundance - Young Knives
        03/07/17
        Sometimes we wonder whether, when putting together the artwork for the front cover of their albums and singles, artists really want to put something specific on them but are not allowed to by their record company. We think this might be the case for the Young Knives, whose original cover for Supera

      • Photograph - Nickelback
        02/07/17
        We can't believe it has taken us quite so long to get around to remixing some cover artwork from Nickelback. Today it is the turn of their 2005 single Photograph. ON the original front cover we find some photographs which may contain the band members (though it's difficult to tell as the

      • Behind The Mask - Fleetwood Mac
        01/07/17
        Another remix for Fleetwood Mac. The place that they are telling us to look is Behind The Mask. That being said, on the original front cover artwork for their single, there is no evidence of any kind of mask, unless that is a codeword for a band playing in front of someone's house. On the r

    • July
      • Borderline - Michael Gray Featuring Shelly Poole
        30/06/17
        The original single cover artwork for Borderline by Michael Gray Featuring Shelly Poole takes as it's source, the video for the song in which several scantily clad babes wearing black lingerie and white blouses dance around on the roof of a building. The remixed single cover does little more t

      • She's A River - Simple Minds
        29/06/17
        Another remix for those Scottish songsters Simple Minds and today it is the turn of their single She's A River. On the original cover artwork we find two of the band members but no river, and no 'she'. On the remix we find that the reason that she is not in fact a river, but has jus

      • Sittin' On A Fence - Twice As Much
        28/06/17
        As we often say at AllBum.Art, sometimes our remix of original single or album cover artwork is inspired by the name of a track, and sometimes by a picture. This one was inspired by a picture of a bootisome babe Sittin' On A Fence, and luckily there was a single by Twice As Much that did the h

      • British Hustle - Hi-Tension
        27/06/17
        Hi-Tension sang about the British Hustle, which is presumably something like American Hustle but with a Dick Van Dyke accent. The original single cover artwork suggest that this may be the case. The remix tells a different story and we find out exactly how the British like to hustle, which seems t

      • Rocket - Def Leppard
        26/06/17
        We really like the original front cover artwork for the single Rocket by Def Leppard. Not only does it show the name of the band, and the title of the song, but the title of the song has been deftly changed into the shape of a rocket. Clever! The remix adds very little other than a cutesy babe rid

      • Love City Groove - Love City Groove
        25/06/17
        Love City Groove with their self-titled single of the same name are, so we are told by wikipedia, Britain's entry to the 1995 Eurovision Song Contest which is some kind of annual European event where countries compete to win a prize for having the worst song. Anyhow, the original cover artwork

      • Yellow River - Christie
        24/06/17
        On the original single cover artwork to Yellow River by Christie, do we get any indication what the nature of this river is? No, we just find the band members who look as puzzled as we are by the nature of this saffron stream. Well boys, our remix helps understand the nature of this amber flow. I

      • Ride A White Swan - T-Rex
        23/06/17
        In the 1970s when Marc Bolan of T-Rex told women around the world to Ride A White Swan, few, if any, had the slightest idea what he was talking about. Although the original cover artwork suggests that this means mounting a white swan and taking a ride, this was, at least in the 1970s both impractic

      • Just One Look - The Hollies
        22/06/17
        It seems that The Hollies are fond of single cover artwork in which the band members appear in front of a red wall. On Just One Look, the banality of their cover is probably the reason why you wouldn't bother taking a second or third look. On the remix we find a babe who is offering you just

      • Breakthru - Queen
        21/06/17
        Have Queen made a Breakthru as the title of their single suggests? if you define breakthru as having the band members peering through a slit on the original cover artwork then maybe. Have we at AllBum.Art made a breakthru with the remix? Sadly not. But what we have achieved at least is to put a q

      • She's So High - Tal Bachman
        20/06/17
        When Tal Bachman tells us that She's So High, we would kind of expect the single cover artwork to help explain who she is and why she is so high. But no, we just find a picture of Mr Bachman (well he is Canadian after all). On the remix we find that she is a 1940s style pin-up girl, and the r

      • A Different Corner - George Michael
        19/06/17
        Interesting isn't it not? When George Michael sings about A Different Corner, you kind of expect the single cover artwork to have a corner in the shot. Instead it's just Mr Michael walking through a forest. Well if that's how you want to handle it, who are we to disagree and in the

      • The Way You Make Me Feel - Michael Jackson
        18/06/17
        What is The Way You Make Me Feel? According to Michael Jackson it is standing as a silhouette against a slightly steamy blue background. So how's about a remix? We thought you'd never ask. On the remix is roughly the same scene, rotated through 90 degrees, with Mr Jackson replaced by an

      • Turn Me On - Norah Jones
        17/06/17
        When receiving a request such as that from Norah Jones, which is to say that she has given the instruction to Turn Me On, we immediately think of light-bulbs, don't you? It seems, however, that on the original single cover artwork, Ms Jones has only thought of the title of the song, and her si

      • Up-Town Up-Tempo Woman - Randy Edelman
        16/06/17
        What marks an Up-Town Up-Tempo Woman? According to the original single cover artwork, Randy Edelman thinks it is the wearing of yellow stiletto shoes whilst standing on a California license plate. We think differently and on the remix you find a babe who is up-town (or down-town, it's difficu

      • Give Me The Night - Randy Crawford
        15/06/17
        A chilled out remix of the George Benson classic Give Me The Night is the subject of today's remix from Randy Crawford, which is a single from her album Naked And True. So on the artwork you would expect something maybe a little more naked and nightly than a smiling Ms Crawford, not matter how

      • Sweetie - The Headquarters
        14/06/17
        We like The Headquarters take on what constitutes being a Sweetie. On their original cover artwork they have a sweet babe and have cleverly used the text on the cover to conceal her sweetest parts. The remix does little to improve upon this, it just modernizes the single with a more up-to-date swe

      • Up-Tight - Stevie Wonder
        13/06/17
        Another remix for Stevie Wonder, this time for his 1966 hit Up-Tight (Everything's Alright). On the original single cover artwork we find Mr Wonder playing harmonica, drums and piano (and presumably also singing), but what is tight about this? On the remix we find a babe who is very tightly st

      • Sexy Pyjamas - Ze Popes
        12/06/17
        We don't know whether or not we agree with Ze Popes about what constitutes Sexy Pyjamas. On the original cover artwork of their single, their notion of what sexy pyjamas entails consists of a curvy lady bending over in a clingy night dress. On the one hand this is quite sexy, on the other it&

      • Angel Eyes - Wet Wet Wet
        11/06/17
        Another remix for those Scottish heartthrobs Wet Wet Wet. On the original single cover artwork for their single Angel Eyes, the only indication that there have been any eyes is the mask which may have been covering them. Maybe an angel called into a party and didn't want to be recognized so s

      • Star Struck - Cheri
        10/06/17
        Cheri is Star Struck. So much so that on the original cover artwork of her single she has forgotten to provide any information or details of what this might look like. On the remix we find a babe wearing a silver dress and looking star struck against a background of stars, could it be any more str

      • Bra - Cymande
        09/06/17
        Could there be a better song name for a remix of the cover artwork than Bra by Cymande? It's just asking to be re-made, especially as the original cover shows a guy wearing a winter hat with a dove sat on his head. The remix shows what the name of the song says it should show, a bra, and one

      • Rockin' For Myself - Motiv8
        08/06/17
        Motiv8 (clever use of a number to replace the end of a word, but note that it only works in English - Motiv-Huit or Motive-Acht just don't cut it) and their single Rockin' For Myself are the subject of today's remix. But what, who and lots of other questions relating to the rocking a

      • Dancing Shoes - September
        07/06/17
        Would you know it, September has an album with the same name as a single we remixed back in March by Dev, called Dancing Shoes. And once again, the original cover artwork lacks one essential detail. That is that the picture of Ms Marklund (for that is her real name) has been cropped above her ankl

      • Hot Legs - Rod Stewart
        06/06/17
        When Rod Stewart sang about Hot Legs it wasn't clear to us whether he was talking about barbecue chicken, or some babe or other. The original single cover artwork doesn't help unless Mr Stewart is walking his way to either of these two possibilities. On the remix we find a babe with hot l

      • Pick Up The Pieces - Average White Band
        05/06/17
        We like the Average White Band especially because their logo is made up of the curvy reverse silhouette of a long haired maiden. We are a little bit let down that their cover of Pick Up The Pieces, didn't expand on this theme, so we have done it for them in the remix. On the remixed single co

      • Poison - Bell Biv Devoe
        04/06/17
        If you're going to release an album whose name is Poison, at least make the cover artwork slightly toxic. This is a lesson that Bell Biv Devoe seem to have skipped preferring, instead to concentrate on advertising themselves. The remix helps them do their learning, as we find a belle who is a

      • Kiss Me Deadly - Lita Ford
        03/06/17
        Yes, it's only June, but introducing the occasional Halloween Hit in the middle of the year is no real problem as long as it's a good one, and Kiss Me Deadly by Lita Ford qualifies. The original cover finds Ms Ford sitting with her guitar, but she doesn't look particularly deadly, no

      • Sensible Shoes - Dave Lee Roth
        02/06/17
        Get this, if you will... The video for Sensible Shoes by Dave Lee Roth was regarded as too provocative for MTV and got little airplay. Odd then, that the original cover artwork for his single errs on the boring. Other than Mr Lee Roth himself looking as flouncy-haired as normal, the only thing to

      • Oranges And Lemons - XTC
        01/06/17
        An odd thing is happening here. On the original album cover artwork for Oranges And Lemons by XTC there as an almost complete absence of citrus fruit, or indeed fruit of any kind. There are some circular blobs in citrus-based colors but these could easily be paint smudges. On the remix we find lo

    • May
      • Sand In My Shoes - Dido
        31/05/17
        So Dido says she has Sand In My Shoes does she? Well the original single cover artwork doesn't give us any indication of this. First of all, there's no evidence that she is anywhere near any sand. Secondly, if she had got sand in her shoes, you would think this to be marginally uncomfor

      • Devil In Your Shoes (Walking All Over) - Shed 7
        30/05/17
        There's a Devil In Your Shoes (and she's Walking All Over) or at least there is if Shed 7 are to be believed. And we have to take their word for it because on the original single cover artwork we find nothing to indicate who this devil is, or indeed what shoes she might be wearing. On th

      • How High - The Charlatans
        29/05/17
        Just How High? That is the question that The Charlatans are asking. Now it is feasible that the picture on the original single cover artwork which shows some guy wearing a backpack was taken whilst he was at the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, and thus he could be deemed to be very high, but it is so

      • Feel So High - Desree
        28/05/17
        Desree tells us that she Feels So High. This may be true, she is clearly in a good mood as she is smiling, but how high is 'so' high? We felt the need to find out and so on the remix we got three babes to wear very high heel boots. This wasn't enough though so we asked one of the b

      • Starships - Nicki Minaj
        27/05/17
        Our third remix for Nicki Minaj has us considering her single Starships. On the original single cover artwork we find Ms Minaj looking very pink and purple, but unless she is standing in some sleek starship whose internals are all painted in pure white, we are not convinced that she is in any kind

      • In My Arms - Mylo
        26/05/17
        The original single cover artwork for In My Arms by Mylo shows a boy and a girl kissing and arguably passes the test for actually depicting the nature of the song on the cover as the boy has the girl's arms around his neck. The remix, therefore, doesn't really add anything except that the

      • A Lover's Holiday - Change
        25/05/17
        What does A Lover's Holiday look like? Well, according to the original single artwork from Change, it looks like a series of circles and triangles in black, orange and yellow. Obviously! However we think that the simple addition of a babe who has packed her suitcase and is ready to head on h

      • Automatic - Pointer Sisters
        24/05/17
        Automatic by The Pointer Sisters is the subject of today's AllBum.Art artwork remix. The original cover shows the three band members but what is it about them that could be said to be automatic? The banality of their effort? On the remix we find a babe sitting in a car ready to drive it. Is

      • See Emily Play - Pink Floyd
        23/05/17
        When Pink Floyd invite us to See Emily Play, we expect a little more from their single cover artwork than a mixed-up, messed-up picture of a few of the band members. We expect to see Emily, and we expect to see her playing. Thank goodness, then, that we at AllBum.Art have managed to rectify this s

      • I'll See It Through - Texas
        22/05/17
        For some reason, we had always thought that Texas were a band from Texas, but apparently they are from Scotland. Anyway the original single cover artwork for I'll See It Through we find the lead singer running her hands through her hair. On the remix we find a different babe also running her

      • Look Through Any Window - The Hollies
        21/05/17
        Look Through Any Window and what will you find? According to The Hollies it would be the band standing in front of a red wall, staring back at you. That may be nice but we think there are even nicer things that can be found to stare at through some windows and in the remix we find a babe resting h

      • One Cool Remove - Shawn Colvin With Mary Chaplin Carpenter
        20/05/17
        One Cool Remove is what Shawn Colvin sings about with the help of Mary Chaplin Carpenter, which is nice of them. But what on Earth is a one cool remove? The original single cover artwork gives us no idea whatsoever other than showing a badly squashed photo of the two of them singing. On the remix

      • Do You Love What You Feel - Inner City
        19/05/17
        Inner City look like they are enjoying themselves on the original front cover artwork for their single Do You Love What You Feel. The odd thing is that it is not clear what it is that they are feeling that they are loving. On the remix we find two babes feeling inside some guy's swimming shor

      • Big Fun - Inner City
        18/05/17
        Big Fun is what Inner City claim to be having. But the original front cover artwork for their single doesn't really indicate what kind of fun this is and why it is so big. Instead it just offers us a skyline, possibly of Detroit, MI, their home town. On the remix we find two babes having a l

      • Beauty On A Back Street - Hall & Oates
        17/05/17
        Another remix for that intrepid duo, Hall & Oates. This time it is the turn of their 1977 album Beauty On A Back Street to get remixed. The original album front cover artwork shows Mr Hall and Mr Oates looking somewhat furtive on a dinghy back street somewhere. Certainly there is no beauty in

      • Shape Of My Heart - Backstreet Boys
        16/05/17
        We are very disappointed by the Backstreet Boys. The original single cover artwork is so boring and uninventive that they were either on a cost-cutting mission, or were just very pressed for time when they put it together. We have tried to help them improve this (for free too!) and on the remix we

      • Shame Shame Shame - Shirley And Company
        15/05/17
        It would seem that on the original single front cover artwork for Shame Shame Shame by Shirley And Company, the intention was to shame President Richard Nixon, which it seems that Shirley is pointing to. Indeed, shame on him. On the remix we find three babes who are all looking rather ashamed at h

      • Just The Way You Are - Milky
        14/05/17
        Apparently Milky likes us Just The Way You Are. Which is odd, because on the original single front cover artwork, we find a babe (presumably Milky) standing on a country road with her hands above her head. Is that her way of expressing that she likes us just the way we are? On the remix we find a

      • Wiggle It - 2 In A Room
        13/05/17
        Wiggle It (just a little bit) were the instructions that 2 In A Room gave us in 1991. Unfortunately, the original single front cover artwork doesn't show us how this wiggling should take place, nor who the two people in the room are, or should be. The remix helps a lot with this as we find two

      • Family Man - Mike Oldfield
        12/05/17
        Leave me alone, I'm a Family Man, is what Mike Oldfield in this 1980s song. We give him some credit that on the original single front cover artwork, there is a woman dressed in red trying to tempt the family man with her wily charms. On the remix little has changed except that the woman in re

      • Show Me Love - Robin S
        11/05/17
        It is such a shame that when Robin S was thinking about the original single front cover artwork for Show Me Love, that all she could come up with to advertise her song were a few roses. Now it is fair to say that there are those who associated roses with love, but it doesn't really show the lo

      • How Did You Know - Kurtis Mantronik Presents Chamonix
        10/05/17
        How Did You Know is the question being posed by Kurtis Mantronik Presents Chamonix. The original single cover artwork doesn't really assist in any way with answering this question. On the remix, however, we find a babe standing around in her pajamas but wait a minute, what is that she is look

      • So Amazing - Luther Vandross
        09/05/17
        A second remix in a row for Luther Vandross and this time it is the single artwork for So Amazing that we are examining. On the original artwork we find a drawing of Mr Vandross once again with one of his trademark cheeky smiles on his face. On the remix we find another trademark remix as there is

      • Never Too Much - Luther Vandross
        08/05/17
        Luther Vandross sings to us that it is Never Too Much. Now from the original single cover artwork it would seem that whatever it is that is never too much is making Mr Vandross smile in a rather cheeky fashion. On the remix we find out why, as the thing that there is never too much of is the buxom

      • Change - Lisa Stansfield
        07/05/17
        Nothing illustrates a song with the title of Change more accurately than having the singer, in this case Lisa Stansfield squatting on the roof of a building. Well, when we say nothing, we obviously mean that what would be better would be to have a babe who is changing her clothes which is what you

      • Rescue Me - Skepta
        06/05/17
        If you look closely enough, you will see that on the original single front cover artwork for Rescue Me by Skepta, Mr Adenuga (for that is his name) is wearing a straight-jacket, so it is quite feasible that he needs rescuing, though if someone has decided to tie him up in that way, perhaps no rescue

      • I'm Not Shy - Frank
        05/05/17
        Where do we begin with the original front cover artwork for I'm Not Shy by Frank? For starters, none of the girls pictured appear very shy, so not only is there no sign of shyness, but it is not clear which, if any, of the girls would be making such a bold statement. On the remix we find just

      • Lucky Day - Nicola Roberts
        04/05/17
        Nicola Roberts tells us that it is our Lucky Day on the single and album of the same name. On the original cover artwork we find Mr Roberts slouching on top of some laundry machines. Maybe it is our lucky day because she is doing our washing for us? On the remix we find a business man who has tur

      • Natural Thing - Innocence
        03/05/17
        What is the Natural Thing that adorns the original cover artwork of the single from Innocence? It appears to be some kind of wave overlaid onto the visage of the lead singer. Nice but not that natural a thing. On the remix we find an innocent looking babe who is amidst a natural forest setting.

      • Chantilly Lace - The Big Bopper
        02/05/17
        Another triple-play brought to you by us good folk at AllBum.Art. Today it is the turn of The Big Bopper and his single Chantilly Lace. Though Mr Bopper might think that what makes good front cover artwork for his single, the original cover just shows him on the phone to a babe who may or may not

      • May The Sunshine - Nazareth
        01/05/17
        It's May, so time for a song with the word May in the title. And what better than May The Sunshine by Nazareth? On the original single cover artwork, we find some kind of skull with wings, which fails on so many fronts. Where is the sunshine, for example? The remix fixes this problem as we

    • May
      • Devil's Got Your Gold - Frank
        05/04/17
        According to Frank, the Devil's Got Your Gold. According to the original album cover artwork, a black and white picture of the band members is largely all you have got, no gold, and no devil. On the remix we find that although the devil may have got your gold, what he has done with it is rath

      • A Day At The Races - Queen
        04/04/17
        Let's go for A Day At The Races with Queen. This seems to mean two scantily clad babes holding up the letter Q and a crown supported by one golden lion and one silver one. Oh, and let's not forget the crab and bird in the background. The remix is much more simple as we find a group of b

      • Crush On You - The Jets
        03/04/17
        What would it look like if someone had a Crush On You? Unfortunately the original single front cover artwork by The Jets does not enlighten the situation at all, unless having a crush on you looks like some yellow letters against a pink background. On the remix we find a babe who has a crush on th

      • Release Me - Agnes
        02/04/17
        Release Me is what Agnes asks us. On the original single front cover artwork we find Ms Carlsson looking anything other than trapped and in need of release. On the remix we find a babe who has been tied up in chains and left at the bottom of a metal staircase. She is definitely in need of being r

      • April Moon - Sam Brown
        01/04/17
        Sam Browm sings to us about an April Moon, which is highly appropriate given the date, and no, we are not fooling around. The remix of the original album cover artwork is needed because on the original cover there is a singular lack of any kind of moon. On the remix we find a babe who is mooning u

    • March
      • Summertime - New Kids On The Block
        31/03/17
        Yes, it's the end of March, but does that mean that we can't do a remix of a summer sizzler? The New Kids On The Block, on the cover of their single Summertime suggest only that it might be summer by the fact that some of them are wearing t-shirts with slightly short sleeves. On the remi

      • Working Girl - Cheri
        30/03/17
        We are not completely sure what Cheri were thinking when they put together the original cover artwork for their single Working Girl. As far as we are aware, a working girl could refer to two possibilities: one - a girl performing a job, such as working in an office, or two - a lady of the night. W

      • Heartache No. 9 - Delegation
        29/03/17
        Delegation sing of Heartache No. 9 (Number Nine). But their original cover artwork only tells us that this heartache may have been caused be excess consumption of water, that has been poured out of a wine bottle into a cocktail glass. Odd. On the remix we find 9 babes, any one of which could caus

      • My Boots - Lights
        28/03/17

        Another triple play remix from us good folk at AllBum.Art in the form of My Boots by Lights. On the original cover we find the artist but no sign of any boots (then again, she is Canadian). On the first remix we find a babe proudly showing us her pink boots, but who doesn't necessarily

      • Out Of The Woods - Taylor Swift
        27/03/17
        When Taylor Swift tells us that she is Out Of The Woods, we immediately ask ourselves questions such as why and where. On the original cover artwork some of these questions are answered as we find a girl (presumably Ms Swift) standing at the edge of a misty, spooky looking forest. On the remix we

      • Uninvited - Freemasons
        26/03/17
        The Freemasons Featuring Bailey Tzuke have Uninvited us, but we're not sure what from. Presumably some form of social media where you uninvite instead of unfriend. The original cover provides us with a fine picture of the featured Ms Tzuke, but no indication of who are what is uninvited. The

      • Wishing Well - Free
        25/03/17
        Another of these 1970s single covers where the band have shown nothing more of interest than the band itself. On the original cover artwork for Wishing Well by Free, there is no well, and nothing to wish for. On the remix we find a babe who is sitting by a wishing well. How do we know it is a wis

      • Java Jive - The Manhattan Transfer
        24/03/17
        Whilst we are on the subject of coffee, here is another beany remix. On the original single cover artwork for Java Jive by The Manhattan Transfer, we find the band members looking dapper in their 1930s inspired outfits. But where's the coffee people? It's on the remix where we find a ba

      • Black Coffee - Humble Pie
        23/03/17
        The weird thing is that coffee isn't actually black, it's more of a kind of dark brown color. Even white coffee is still brown. Nevertheless, Humble Pie decided to name their single Black Coffee. The original single cover artwork shows nothing more than the band playing. Maybe they are

      • Little Red Boots - Lindi Ortega
        22/03/17

        Another triple-play from AllBum.Art, this time Little Red Boots from Lindi Ortega. We give Ms Ortega nearly full points for the original album (and single) cover artwork as it shows the singer wearing red boots, thus our remixes are largely redundant (but fun nonetheless). In the first we fin

      • Love It When You Call - The Feeling
        21/03/17
        When we saw the original cover artwork for Love It When You Call by The Feeling, we couldn't help but think what the babe wearing the high heels who was on the phone looked like. A bit of web-searching later and we discovered the answer and so on the remix we bring you an expanded view of the

      • Dancing Shoes - Dev
        20/03/17
        Hey, hey, as a certain cartoon clown says. Dev is here with her Dancing Shoes. But ho, ho, someone has cropped her picture on the original cover artwork of her single above her knees and the one critical thing missing is a look at what her dancing shoes look like. On the remix we find a babe who

      • Love Doesn't Have To Hurt - Atomic Kitten
        19/03/17
        According to Atomic Kitten, Love Doesn't Have To Hurt. That is quite a statement to make, especially if you don't justify it but just use the original single cover artwork to sit on the floor showing off your jeans and boots. On the remix we find that love can hurt, as it obviously is do

      • Hammer To Fall - Queen
        18/03/17
        As we often say at AllBum.Art, sometimes it is the title of a song that inspires a remix, and sometimes it is a piece of artwork. This remix of Hammer To Fall by Queen falls into the latter category. It is not helped by the fact that the original single cover artwork, although showing the band

      • Molly Malone - The Dubliners
        17/03/17

        Another triple-play remix from us good folk at AllBum.Art and as it's St. Patrick's Day we thought we would celebrate by bringing you that famous Irish song Molly Malone as performed by the Dubliners. On the original cover artwork we find the band in a shade of green. Now that'

      • Mile In These Shoes - Jennifer Lopez
        16/03/17
        It seems that Jennifer Lopez has a thing about shoes, given the title of this single Mile In These Shoes, not to mention her single Louboutins. We are not quite sure what the original cover artwork is trying to portray. Is it that walking a mile in silver high heels leaves you very sweaty, or is i

      • The Bride - Bat For Lashes
        15/03/17
        When Bat For Lashes put together the original cover artwork for their album The Bride, they made a valiant attempt to score high points (on the AllBum.Art scale) in that they have a picture of a band member who is wearing vaguely bridal attire. On the remix, the band member has been lost, but in he

      • In These Shoes - Kirsty MacColl
        14/03/17
        So it seems from the original cover artwork of In These Shoes by Kirsty MacColl, that we can see the shoes she is talking about, being, as they are, sparkly and pink. But what is it that she was trying to achieve in those shoes? On the remix we find a babe with similar but gold shoes and as far as

      • Angel In The Night - Basshunter
        13/03/17
        To give credit where it is due, Basshunter have done quite well with the original cover artwork of their single Angel In The Night, as what it shows is a babe (who we could go so far as to admit might be quite an angel) who is sprawled over a car which might be at night, though the lighting doesn�

      • Bubbles - Biffy Clyro
        12/03/17
        It seems very odd to us that on the original cover artwork of their single Bubbles, Biffy Clyro choose to illustrate the song with the footsteps of a girl who is walking along a beach into the see having been replaced by red fish. Then again, we couldn't be bothered to listen to the song to se

      • The Witch - Rattles
        11/03/17

        It seems that all that Rattles believe is necessary on the original single cover artwork for their single The Witch, to make us believe that there is a witch is for one of the band members to hide in a shed and beckon the other band members to join her through the use of a crooked finger and a

      • Check It Out (Everybody) - B.M.R. Featuring Felicia
        10/03/17
        Another song asking us to Check It Out (Everybody), this time from B.M.R. Featuring Felicia. But who is Felicia and what is is that she wants us to check out? The original cover tells us nothing. The remixed single cover artwork, on the other hand, does. It seems Felicia may have had herself a b

      • Checkin' It Out - Lil' Chris
        09/03/17
        Hey, dude, what ya gawkin' at? It seems Lil' Chris is Checkin' It Out for ya, so you don't have to. But what is it that Chris is checkin, other than his own ego by making the two fingered devil salute. On the remix we find a guy who may or may not be lil, and who may also be o

      • (You're The) Devil In Disguise - Elvis Presley
        08/03/17
        Another remix for Elvis Presley and this time for his single (You're The) Devil In Disguise. On the original single cover artwork we find Mr Presley looking rather upbeat in his grey jacket and strumming his guitar. No sign of that disguised devil though. On the remix we find a babe who is cl

      • Take Me Away (Into The Night) - 4 Strings
        07/03/17
        Take Me Away (Into The Night) are the instructions we are given by 4 Strings. For the babe on the original single cover artwork, this appears to be achieved through her standing around in sunglasses when it is dark, and wearing a bikini and a knitted top. On the remix, a similar looking babe, but

      • (The Angels Wanna Wear) Red Shoes - Elvis Costello
        06/03/17
        According to Elvis Costello, (The Angels Wanna Wear) Red Shoes. What is therefore highly disappointing is that the cover of his single doesn't give any indication of why, who, where or any solve any other inquisitive statements. Indeed even Mr Costello is not wearing red shoes. On the remix

      • At Night - Shakedown
        05/03/17
        It all happens At Night. That is what we are generally led to believe, which is that daytime is when not much happens, but at night it all kicks off. On the original cover of this single by Shakedown, we find someone wearing a space suit. Maybe it's night, maybe it isn't - because space

      • Freak Like Me - Adina Howard
        04/03/17
        I wanna be your freak, all through the day, all through the night. That is what Adina Howard tells us in her song Freak Like Me. On the original single cover artwork we find Ms Howard wearing leather and fishnet hose. On the remix we find a babe who, arguably, is significantly more freaky, wearin

      • Kick - Inxs
        03/03/17
        Another remix for Inxs (which is pronounced 'in excess' rather than 'inks' in case you were wondering). The original artwork for their album Kick is a kind of random jumble of images of the band members - none of them in a kicking posture. On the remix we find a babe who is doi

      • White Shoes - Emmylou Harris
        02/03/17
        We give full marks to Emmylou Harris for the cover of her album White Shoes. Why full marks? Because it shows both the artist (Ms Harris) and a pair of white shoes (in this case ones that she is wearing herself). So really our remix is a little pointless, however we had this great picture of some

      • Whistle For The Choir - The Fratellis
        01/03/17
        The Fratellis seem to use pinup artwork on the covers of many of their singles. On the cover of Whistle For The Choir, they show a pinup babe with long legs, and wearing stockings, holding up her panties in the air over her handbag. On the remix we have just replaced the drawing with a real babe d

      • The Devil Made Me Do It - Thunder
        28/02/17
        The Devil Made Me Do It. How often have we used that as an excuse? Plenty, perhaps. Thunder, it seems, have decided that this is the reason for their appallingly bad cover artwork. Blame it on the devil, why don't you. On the remix we find an ecumenical babe who has obviously succumb to the

      • Real Girl - Mutya Buena
        27/02/17
        Mutya Buena is a Real Girl, as far as we can tell. But the problem with the cover artwork of her single and album (of the same name) is that although we can see Ms Buena's face, whether the rest of her body proves that she is a real girl is not known. On the remix we find a babe who is 100% r

      • Ebony And Ivory - Paul McCartney And Stevie Wonder
        26/02/17
        You would think, would you not, that when two megastars such as Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder get together to make a song, they would also find a way to get together to make the single cover artwork. But on the cover of Ebony And Ivory, it is clear that the two were not in the same place when th

      • Silver Machine - Hawkwind
        25/02/17
        As you know, we here at AllBum.Art particularly like single artwork where the artists have made an effort to portray the name of the song on the cover. Hawkwind have singularly failed this task on the cover of their single Silver Machine. Not only is there no machine visible, but neither is there a

      • How Dare You - 10cc
        24/02/17
        Another remix for 10cc, this time for the artwork of their album How Dare You. On the original cover we find a businessman on the telephone to a female, possibly his wife, or mistress, or secretary. On the remix we find only the female who is fiercely proclaiming her dare, which appears to have be

      • Lorraine - Bad Manners
        23/02/17
        Lorraine (Lorraine, Lorraine) Lorraine, Lorraine... Is how the lyrics go in this 80s song from Bad Manners. On the original cover we find that Lorraine is somewhat less than real, and is sitting on a chair. On the remixed single artwork, we find that Lorraine has become much more realistic but sad

      • Good Girls Go Bad - Cobra Starship
        22/02/17
        We kind of half like the original single artwork for Good Girls Go Bad by Cobra Starship. The idea that some babe in green stiletto pumps would draw on the face of a snoozing guy who could, if he woke up, presumably look right up her skirt, is a nice one. Our remix just has a group of girls who ap

      • Final Exit - Fear Factory
        21/02/17
        The Final Exit is where Fear Factory are taking us. Their vision of this seems to be some symmetrical metal scorpion. Our vision of a final exit is rather different. Our exit is one which, after you go through it, there is no return. That must be why the babe who is about to go through it has decid

      • It's The End Of The World As We Know It - R.E.M.
        20/02/17
        Another remix for R.E.M.. According to the band, It's The End Of The World As We Know It, however the original single cover artwork does not help us depict the scene, unless the world ends with a lightning storm. On the remix we find a babe who is defending herself as the end of the world as

      • Nightlife - Kenickie
        19/02/17
        Another remix for Kenickie and this time for their single Nightlife. On the original single cover artwork we find that the band's idea of nightlife is a bed with silk sheets and a playboy pillow with a lava lamp sitting on an untidy bed-side set of drawers. This maybe the aftermath of some ni

      • The Captain - Biffy Clyro
        18/02/17
        It would appear, if the cover artwork for Biffy Clyro's single is to be believed, that the ship that The Captain is captaining, is some kind of airborne wooden affair. On the remix we instead find a picture of the captain herself, as yes, the captain is a babe not a dude, and one who seems to

      • Dreams - Gabrielle
        17/02/17
        Gabrielle tells us that she has Dreams, or so she sings, but the original cover artwork for her single tells us only that she has a rhinestone encrusted eye patch. Perhaps this is her dream. On the remix we find a guy alone in a hotel room with a half naked blonde babe with significant assets who

      • Imagination - Belouis Some
        16/02/17
        Imagination is what you have to use to interpret the single cover artwork by Belouis Some. The original cover shows Mr Some with a pensive look on his face. Does this suggest he is lost in his imagination? Perhaps that depends on what he is imagining. On the remix we find a mature babe who has h

      • All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You - Heart
        15/02/17
        Whilst everyone is still feeling loved-up following Valentine's Day yesterday, we have another hearty remix for you. The original cover of All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You by Heart , shows absolutely nothing at all. One of those 1980s single covers that offers nothing by way of an indicatio

      • Valentine - T'Pau
        14/02/17
        Today is February the 14th, known around the world as Valentine's Day. A day on which everyone gets a bit soppy, and everything is about hearts and flowers. So today's remix is Valentine by T'Pau. On the original cover artwork for the single we find the band members looking a bit s

      • Disco Shock - Various Artists
        13/02/17
        A rare remix of a compilation album by none other than Various Artists. The original cover artwork for Disco Shock has five babes with their backs to us, walking away into the distance. They are wearing a combination of jeans and hot pants and high heels, and one of them (second from the left) app

      • The Sign - Ace Of Base
        12/02/17
        Another remix for Swedish songsters Ace Of Base. The original single artwork for The Sign holds so many possibilities but none of them have been used, instead we just find a patchwork quilt of pieces of a flower and the band's two female singers. On the remix, one of the most obvious possibili

      • Green Door - Shakin' Stevens
        11/02/17
        Good ole Shakin' Stevens and his aimless cover artwork. On the original single cover for Green Door, we find Mr Stevens loafing around in a white jacket and black shirt. No sign of the green door though. On the remix we find a babe who is standing in a green doorway. Sadly we can't see

      • Cover Girl - New Kids On The Block
        10/02/17
        Another remix for New Kids On The Block as they stylize themselves. On the original cover artwork for Cover Girl, we find the band members looking royally bored in a small square. On the remix we find a cover girl who is covering herself (but not making that good of a job of it). But the boys are

      • Still Of The Night - Whitesnake
        09/02/17
        This is one of our favorite remixes for some time. Why? Well although the original single cover artwork for Still Of The Night by Whitesnake does appear to be set at night, with all that lightning, it doesn't appear very still. On the remix the situation is very changed and the scene present

      • Books From Boxes - Maximo Park
        08/02/17
        Another remix for Maximo Park. On the original single cover artwork of Books From Boxes, we find a man and a woman who appear to be whispering to each other. Maybe that is because they are in a library with books, but that is not evident from the grey background. On the remix we find a babe stand

      • A Forest - The Cure
        07/02/17
        We give almost full marks to The Cure for the original single cover artwork for A Forest, as it clearly illustrates a forest. So why, then, would we at AllBum.Art wish to remix it. Simply because we had this really great picture of a naked babe in a forest and we could think of no better single to

      • When The Tigers Broke Free - Pink Floyd
        06/02/17
        Another remix for Pink Floyd and this time it is of the original cover artwork of their single When The Tigers Broke Free. On the original cover we find someone screaming. Perhaps when the tigers broke free they caused such an uproar. On the remix we find a babe sitting on a tiger skin rug. After

      • In Your Car - Kenickie
        05/02/17
        What is In Your Car? More importantly what is in Kenickie's car? Quite obviously, from the original single cover artwork, what is in Kenickie's car is the band members themselves, though in cartoon format. And the car is toony too. On the remix we find what we would like to find in our

      • Nine Million Bicycles - Katie Melua
        04/02/17

        So there are Nine Million Bicycles (in China) according to Katie Melua. However we are meant to infer this by the fact, presumably, that on the original single cover artwork there is a photo of Ms Melua squatting down in an abandoned warehouse. Is the warehouse in China? Maybe. On the first

      • Walk Through The Fire - Peter Gabriel
        03/02/17
        Walk Through The Fire is what Peter Gabriel tells us to do in his single taken from the film Against All Odds. But on the original cover artwork all we can see is Mr Gabriel smiling. What is he smiling at? Maybe what's making him have such a grin on his face is what is shown on the remix, wh

      • Turn Your Car Around - Lee Ryan
        02/02/17
        Does the picture of Lee Ryan on the original front cover single artwork make you think that you need to Turn Your Car Around? Or does it make you think that he could have done a lot better with his cover design? We think the latter, and so the remix provides a proper excuse to reverse the directio

      • There's Nothing I Won't Do - JX
        01/02/17
        When JX sing that There's Nothing I Won't Do, you would be right to expect more from the original single cover artwork than a fuzzy picture of someone with their mouth wide open. You would expect to see a babe who would do just about anything, in fact a babe who would do absolutely anythi

    • January
      • So Pure - Baby D
        31/01/17
        So Pure. Like snow? Like fragrance-free soap? Like distilled water? No. According to the original single cover artwork, Baby D tells us that what is pure, is a lightning storm. Maybe it is pure, but it is also messy and dangerous. On the remix we find a babe who is, in some ways very pure and in

      • Watermelon Man - Rafael Nunez
        30/01/17
        Rafael Nunez has got it half right. On the original cover artwork for his album Watermelon Man, he shows a watermelon, but the person holding it is not a man, but is instead female (at least that is what she appears to be - looks can be deceptive!) On the remix nothing much has changed except that

      • The Widow - The Mars Volta
        29/01/17
        The Mars Volta, the name alone conjures up images of deepest darkest Africa mixed with the fearsome red planet. The Widow conjures up pictures of a lady mourning for her dead husband. The original single cover artwork shows a woman climbing down a tree. The remix brings the picture into slightly

      • If You Were A Sailboat - Katie Melua
        28/01/17
        What Katie Melua seems to be telling us on the original cover artwork of her single If You Were A Sailboat is that it is rather misty down at the docks where she is awaiting the arrival of the incoming ships. On the remix we find a different babe awaiting the arrival of incoming ships down in the b

      • Love Is Like A Violin - Ken Dodd
        27/01/17
        Ken Dodd attempts to tell us that Love Is Like A Violin by, if the original single cover artwork is to be believed, looking a bit gormless and using his fingers as a mock dicky-bow. The remix tells a different story of a babe playing a violin. A babe who has clearly had some love, probably around 6

      • Ride A Wild Horse - Dee Clark
        26/01/17
        Ride A Wild Horse. Not a great idea if you are lacking cowboy training. But Dee Clark advises us to do it. On the original single cover artwork we find a wild horse attempting to be tamed by a lame tamer in a silly hat. On the remix we find a babe who has decided to look like a horse by wearing

      • Let's Clean Up The Ghetto - Philadelphia International All Stars
        25/01/17
        Brushes and mops out, Let's Clean Up The Ghetto. Or at least that is what the Philadelphia International All Stars wanted us to do in 1977. The original cover artwork has no cleaning equipment visible. The remix helps as we find a ghetto babe doing some cleaning. Why she is doing this in wed

      • The Bends - Radiohead
        24/01/17
        Another remix for Radiohead, anyone would have thought that we had planned that! Today it is the turn of their 1995 album The Bends. The original cover artwork for the album is another of their epic fails. Its only saving grace is that it might have been bendy if you took the album out of the slee

      • Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead
        23/01/17
        The original cover artwork for Radiohead's single Fake Plastic Trees is awful. It has no trees of any kind on it, whether real or fake. The remix on the other hand has got some trees on it, but, I hear you say, those are not fake trees. No, they are not. The fake plastic is in the hands of th

      • Parking Lot - Nelly Furtado
        22/01/17
        Nelly Furtado's idea of a Parking Lot appears, if the cover artwork of her single is to be believed, to be an empty parking lot, with a tree growing in it. Our idea of a parking lot involves having a naked babe (well other than for her heels) waiting patiently against the wall of an underground

      • Bend It - Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich
        21/01/17
        Bend It? That is what Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich tell us to do whilst sitting in a Jeep on the original front cover artwork of their single. All very confusing unless the chassis is bent, or maybe an axle? The remix sorts out this confusion with a babe who can, not to put too fine a point

      • May I Have The Next Dream With You - Malcolm Roberts
        20/01/17
        When Malcolm Roberts sang May I Have The Next Dream With You, we think he was being a little too polite. The cover of his single at least suggests that he is asking in a nice way. The question remains who is he asking this question to. On the remix we find a babe who is sitting dreaming. Never mi

      • All Wrapped Up In Cash - Johnny Cash Played By Nashville Fiddles
        19/01/17
        All Wrapped Up In Cash was an album by the Nashville Fiddles in which they played some Johnny Cash numbers. On the original cover they take the correct approach of picturing a babe who is wrapped up in cash but not much else. On the remix the same approach has been taken, the only slight differenc

      • Armed And Extremely Dangerous - First Choice
        18/01/17
        First Choice claim to be Armed And Extremely Dangerous, but on the cover artwork of their single, they don't appear to be armed, and certainly don't look very dangerous, unless platform shoes have hidden weapons in them. On the remix we find four babes who are clearly armed, and they look

      • Does Your Mother Know - ABBA
        17/01/17
        Another remix for those Swedish swingers, ABBA. On the original cover of Does Your Mother Know we find the four members of the band and, for some reason, the guy on the left is holding a light-sabre. On the remix we find some young guys in a park undressing a hapless babe. The question is, whose

      • The Winner Takes It All - ABBA
        16/01/17
        Having finished our week-long Ohio Players special, we return to another band who have so many remixes on AllBum.It that they could have had a week of their own: ABBA! On the original cover of The Winner Takes It All we find the four band members in flowery shirts. Maybe that was a winning look in

      • Pleasure/Pain - Ohio Players
        15/01/17
        A bit of a special end to the Ohio Players special remix week, with two remixes on the same day. The first is for their album Pleasure. On the original cover is a babe with her hands in the air. She doesn't look that happy, but then pleasure is a personal thing and maybe having her hands in

      • Fire - Ohio Players
        14/01/17
        Our week-long Ohio Players special is almost at a climax, as today we remix the cover artwork for their album Fire. On the original cover we find a babe who is trying to extinguish a fire with a water hose. On the remix we find a babe who is doing exactly the opposite and is holding a flame thrower

      • Honey - Ohio Players
        13/01/17
        We have to say, that in producing this week-long Ohio Players special, it is clear that whoever it was that originally designed their album covers had similar ideas to the team at AllBum.Art, which is to say that they liked their hot babes. Here we find a babe drizzling Honey into her mouth. On th

      • Jass-Ay-Lay-Dee - Ohio Players
        12/01/17
        Another in our week-long Ohio Players special. It is clear that the Jass-Ay-Lay-Dee that they have named their album after is fond of dressing provocatively in expensive cars. The remix stays with this ethos, just with a few fewer (can you have a few fewer?) things that may be constituted as clothe

      • Angel - Ohio Players
        11/01/17
        Regular visitors to the AllBum.Art web-site will recognize the fact that we do like a good Angel to remix. So in our continuing week-long Ohio Players special, it seems fitting to remix this heavenly album cover. On the original cover we find a babe who could be described as angelic, but is missing

      • Gold - Ohio Players
        10/01/17
        Continuing our week-long Ohio Players special, we find ourselves with their 'Best Of' album, otherwise known as Gold. On the original album cover artwork we find a babe holding a gold disc. On the remix we find that there had been a second babe in the picture who had been erased and she i

      • Graduation - Ohio Players
        09/01/17
        A new year, a new month - what comes next? A new week, that's what. And this week we have one of our week-long specials which will be remixing the cover artwork of the Ohio Players. Our first remix is for Graduation. On the original album cover we find a babe wearing an outfit that suggests

      • Showing Out (Get Fresh At The Weekend) - Mel And Kim
        08/01/17
        A user submitted entry from the self proclaimed 'Q of Q Green' from London (we have no idea what that means but perhaps any of our English readers could help translate). Q takes up the story:Mel and Kim had a few hits, but were never respectable. The Mel (of Mel and Kim) was a topless an

      • I Fought The Law - The Clash
        07/01/17
        Another remix for rock rebels The Clash, this time it is their hit I Fought The Law. On the original cover we find the band members looking forlorn. Maybe they have fought the law, but the law won. Oh, hang on, that's what they claim. Anyway, on the remixed single cover artwork we find a babe

      • Ghostdancing - Simple Minds
        06/01/17
        We were not sure whether Ghostdancing by Simple Minds should also be in our list of halloween hits but we've added it there anyway. The odd thing is that on the original single cover artwork there are no ghosts, and no dancing going on. On the remix, both these flaws are corrected and we can

      • Wide Eyed And Legless - Andy Fairweather-Low
        05/01/17
        What do you understand by the phrase 'Wide Eyed And Legless'? Well according to Andy Fairweather-Low, it means looking like you have had a bad night out drinking on the set of the A-Team and could do with a few more hours sleep. On the remix we find a babe on the way to getting legless.

      • She Wears My Ring - Solomon King
        04/01/17
        Solomon King says She Wears My Ring, but who is 'she' and what 'ring' is he talking about because the original cover artwork tells us nothing about these things. The remix just adds the 'she' and the 'ring' to solve these things. She is a busty mature lady w

      • (Seven Little Girls) Sitting In The Back Seat - The Avons
        03/01/17
        (Seven Little Girls) Sitting On The Back Seat is what The Avons tell us is happening and to give them credit, the cover artwork for their single does show the scenario, though the girls themselves are not clearly defined. Also, how exactly seven girls can sit in the back seat of a car is also confu

      • Year Of Decision - The Three Degrees
        02/01/17
        As the year screeches to a start, it's time to make a decision, or so Year Of Decision by The Three Degrees would have it. On the original cover, the choice for the year is between the three degrees themselves. On the remix the choice is still between three babes, but they have helpfully lift

      • Pretty Good Year - Tori Amos
        01/01/17
        Will this year be a Pretty Good Year? According to Tori Amos, it could be. How has this been illustrated on the front cover of her single, well with nothing greater than a picture of Ms Amos looking pretty. On the remix we find a New Year's party in full swing with a lot more pretty to choos

      • Just Another New Years Eve - Barry Manilow
        31/12/16
        Is it Just Another New Years Eve? Barry Manilow seems to think so, but what has his hand scrawled picture got to tell us about what New Years Eve holds this year? Thankfully the remix of the cover artwork fixes this problem as we find that the New Years Eve party is being attended by four blonde b

      • Back Door Santa - Clarence Carter
        25/12/16
        Christmas day is finally upon us and our gift to you is a remix that not only falls into our 'Christmas Crackers' category but is also listed in our 'Remi-XXX-es' otherwise known as the adult artwork section. There is no original cover for Back Door Santa by Clarence Carter and

      • So Near To Christmas - Alvin Stardust
        24/12/16
        Twas the night before Christmas and therefore So Near To Christmas, which is what Alvin Stardust sings about in the single of the same name. On the original cover, the odd thing, is that the only reference to the holidays is a piece of holly stuck in the bottom right hand corner. Otherwise it could

        23/12/16
        There can never, ever, in the history of the world, be a better version of The Carol Of The Bells than that performed by the Swedish Chef of the Muppets. But the Marillion version is OK, if you like that kind of thing. The problem is that the cover artwork lacks any kind of bells. On the remix, w

        Twiddly diddly dee, it's Lolly and her friend the Rockin' Robin. Twiddly diddly dee, it seems that to represent this seasonal classic, Lolly has decorated her forehead with snowflakes. Twiddly diddly dee, on the remix we find a babe with a red breast, which must mean she is a robin, thou

And what is it that represents Christmas to the band: standing around in winter clothes whilst being doused in fake snow. The first remix shows an alternative view of what Christmas means, t

      • Have A Boom Boom Christmas - Freddy Cannon
        20/12/16
        Freddy Cannon promises us that we can Have A Boom Boom Christmas, but what does this mean. Our triple-play remix allows you to choose the degree of 'boom boom' you wish your Christmas to enjoy. On the original cover you can have a standard 'freddy' of boom boom. On the first r

      • White Christmas - Darts
        19/12/16
        In a way, cover versions (or versions of a cover) is what AllBum.Art is all about, so it is particularly prescient that today's remix is of a cover version of White Christmas by Darts. Of course we all know it's originally by Bong Crispy which is why, on the original cover of the cover ve

      • Fairytale Of New York - The Pogues Featuring Kirsty MacColl
        18/12/16
        Some rankings have Fairytale Of New York by The Pogues Featuring Kirsty MacColl as the number one Christmas song of all time. The original cover, however, is not seasonal in the least and whilst it does at least let us gaze upon the lead singer of the band, where is Ms MacColl when you need her to

      • Blue Yule - Various Artists
        17/12/16
        Blue Yule is a compilation album containing, it says, "Christmas Blues and R&B Classics". Which makes it odd that the album cover is in red and green. Where are these aforementioned blues? The answer is on the remix where we find a babe in the snow and in the process she has turned

      • Merry Merry Christmas - New Kids On The Block
        16/12/16
        Another remix for the New Kids On The Block and their album Merry Merry Christmas. So what do new kids look like when having a merry (merry) Christmas? It seems they look like a bunch of drunken idiots, which is pretty much what you would expect from boys. From the girls, something more demure as

      • Holiday For Teens - Paul And Paula
        15/12/16
        What did a Holiday For Teens look like in the 1960s? According to Paul And Paula it looked like a girl and a boy who are obviously not teenagers sitting by a Christmas tree slowly opening presents. On the remix we find an alternative scene for the holiday in which a group of babes (some at least w

      • I Know What He Wants For Christmas - Kay Martin
        14/12/16
        So are we now far enough into December to start thinking about Christmas? You betcha! The first of our seasonal sounds for this year is I Know What He Wants For Christmas (But I Don't Know How To Wrap It) by Kay Martin And Her Body Guards. We like Ms Martin's approach to this and can see

      • Daddy Cool - Boney M
        13/12/16
        One of our rare 'one for the ladies' remixes for Boney M and their single Daddy Cool. On the original single we find the girls in the band trying to make the guy in the band look cool and failing badly. On the remix we find a cool daddy. Actually, we don't know if he is a daddy, but

      • Luv Is Cool - System Of Life
        12/12/16
        A triple-play wintery remix for System Of Live and their single Luv Is Cool. The original cover is loveless and not entirely chilly which is why we have two remixes. On the first we find a babe on a freezing railway track. She must luv it there but it's mighty cool. On the second remix we f

      • Long Cold Winter - Cinderella
        11/12/16
        It certainly is becoming a Long Cold Winter with so many remixes about freezing cold singles and albums. On the original cover of this album by Cinderella, we are not certain if it is cold and the whole cover represents a snowy white-out, or whether they just got bored. On the remix we find Cinder

      • Stone Cold - Rainbow
        10/12/16
        There are, as anyone knows, varying degrees of coldness from 'a bit chilly' to 'brass monkeys'. Rainbow have decided to go with Stone Cold which is nearer to the monkey end of the scale than the chilly end. Sadly the cover of their single doesn't portray this which is why

      • Cold World - GZA Featuring Inspectah Deck
        09/12/16
        A Cold World is where GZA Featuring Inspectah Dick is trying to take us. But on the cover of his single, there appears to be a dead man in a diving suit holding a machete. It may be cold but it's not obvious (at least not to us). On the remix is an example of a real cold world. Four babes i

      • Cold Day In Hell - Gary Moore
        08/12/16
        The freeze continues as we find ourselves on a Cold Day In Hell with Gary Moore. On the original cover we see Mr Moore and his electric guitar, but it doesn't look very cold. On the remix we find the wife of Beelzibub dressed in leather and chains, standing in a winter scene. It's rare

      • Cold - Annie Lennox
        07/12/16
        Yes, you can tell it's December because we here at AllBum.Art are remixing a load of wintery tracks. Today it is Cold by Annie Lennox. On the original artwork we see Ms Lennox looking more feathery than wintery. On the remix we find a babe who is distinctly cold. She is bending down in the sn

      • Cold Cold Heart - Wet Wet Wet
        06/12/16
        Another cover artwork remix for the soggy boys of Wet Wet Wet. On the original single for Cold Cold Heart we find the lead singer Mr Pellow looking forlorn, but not especially cold, and not in the region of his heart. On the remix we find a babe who is most definitely chilly in the extreme and it

      • Better In Boots - Tyler Farr
        05/12/16
        Nothing explains a song better on the cover artwork than putting the lyrics on it. Which is no doubt why Tyler Farr thought that it would be a good idea to put some of the lyrics of his song Better In Boots on the cover of his single. We, on the other hand, think that babes look hot in boots and o

      • Digging My Heels In - Tim Daniels
        04/12/16
        What can we say about the cover artwork for Tim Daniels' single Digging My Heels In? Pretty much nothing as that is what is on the cover, nothing. Naught. Nix. Just the title of the song and Mr Daniels' name. Sadly our remix department slightly misheard the title and have produced a remi

      • The Fox In The Snow - Belle And Sebastian
        03/12/16
        A triple-play from us here at AllBum.Art in the form of two remixes of the cover of The Fox In The Snow by Belle And Sebastian. On the original cover we find a fox, in the snow. Full marks for that. On the first remix we also find a fox in the snow, or a tiger, or cougar, depending on your outloo

      • Underdog - Kasabian
        02/12/16
        Ah yes, nothing screams Underdog like the cover of this single from Kasabian. Why is that the case, when the cover has nothing other than the name of the song and the band on it, well it is clear that the designer is an underdog and does not understand the complexities of producing artwork for sing

      • December Song (I Dreamed Of Christmas) - George Michael
        01/12/16
        We begin December with a suitably seasonal triple-play remix from George Michael. The original cover artwork for his song, December Song (I Dreamed Of Christmas) shows an odd stack of televisions, a mouse and some badly drawn people. The first of our remixes shows a cold December angel who appears

    • December
      • Puppet On A String - Sandie Shaw
        30/11/16
        Sandie Shaw sings about a Puppet On A String, but on the cover of her single there is only a picture of Ms Shaw. There is no sign of any puppet and nor is there any indication of the string on which the puppet is strung. On the remix we find a babe tied up with string, or at least tied up with som

      • Rock Bottom - Lynsey De Paul & Mike Moran
        29/11/16
        Let's play word association... 'Rock Bottom'... Did you think of a man and a woman resting their chins on their fists, wearing waistcoat suits and red flowers? No? Well apparently that's what Lynsey De Paul and Mike Moran thought of when they were given the choice to select a p

      • On Point - House Of Pain
        28/11/16
        Pointy, pointy, ooh la, la, pointy pointy. That is how the lyrics of On Point by House Of Pain might have gone if they'd left them to have been written by an idiot. But the lyrics are not what concerns us, it's just the artwork that we feature. The original cover shows the band, well al

      • Stay - Sash Featuring La Trec
        28/11/16
        Don't you just love Sash Featuring La Trec for their apparent lack of any interest in making the original front cover artwork for their single even the slightest bit interesting? No? Well thankfully AllBum.Art is to hand. On the remix we find a babe who is having difficulties with a troubles

      • Louboutins - Jennifer Lopez
        27/11/16
        What could be more iconic than Louboutins when it comes to shoes? And on the original single cover artwork we find that Jennifer Lopez does appear to be wearing said shoes which we know as the heels are painted red. Full marks on the AllBum.Art score card for a cover that shows the artist and the

      • While I Shovel The Snow - The Walkmen
        26/11/16
        While I Shovel The Snow, it seems that The Walkmen are not going to help but are going to stand around under a bridge staring towards the icy river beyond. Thankfully, on the remix, we find a babe who is more than willing to help shovel the snow, and she has all the necessary equipment, including a

      • I Have Nothing - Whitney Houston
        26/11/16
        When Whitney Houston tells is that I Have Nothing, we don't believe this to be strictly true. Not least, the original single cover artwork shows her to have a nice black dress. On the remix we find a babe who really does have nothing. Not only does she not have a dress to wear, but it seems

      • Push In The Bush - Clair Hicks And Love Exchange
        25/11/16

        A triple-play of remixes and ones that fall within our 'X-rated remixes' category. The original cover for Clair Hicks And Love Exchange is nothing more than the title of the song and the name of the band against a marbled backdrop. The two remixxes follow an identical theme, that o

      • Ouch - Ohio Players
        24/11/16
        The original cover for the Ohio Players album Ouch! shows a babe who appears to have gotten something stuck in her ass, and is experiencing a certain amount of pain extracting it, but it is not clear what is stuck there. On the remi-xxx (yes another of our xxx-rated remixes) the situation becomes c

      • This Is Hardcore - Pulp
        23/11/16
        With a title like This Is Hardcore, this album by Pulp was always destined to be 'Remi-XXX-ed' instead of just a regular remix, and just to make matters even more merry, there are two remixes for your enjoyment. The original cover hints at hardcore through the use of a topless babe positi

      • Fools Gold - The Stone Roses
        22/11/16
        Having seen yesterday's remix of a track by The Stone Roses, we received a user submitted remix of Fools Gold from Maark Aardman (not sure why there are so many extra 'a's in his name) from Bolton, England. Maark says:Our lad needs some gold that would make a fool of you, get in!We d

      • Love Spreads - Stone Roses
        21/11/16
        What spreads? Butter? Jelly? Rumours? Wildfire? No, it's love... Love Spreads according to The Stone Roses. The thing is that their original artwork provides no indication whatsoever of how this spreading of love is to take place. On the remix we find a babe whose love is spread about as wide

      • Don't Kill The Whale - Yes
        20/11/16
        A noble cause, 'Save The Whales', and one to which band Yes clearly subscribe given the title of their single Don't Kill The Whale. The original cover artwork for their single highlights the plight of these majestic creatures as we find a whale who is thrashing about in the sea. Lit

      • Ginger Bread - Frankie Avalon
        19/11/16
        Whether you write it Ginger Bread (as 2 words) or Gingerbread (as 1 word) makes little difference to the cover of this single from Frankie Avalon. The original artwork shows Mr Avalon looking rather dashing in his 50s style get-up. On the remix we find a babe whose nickname at school was gingerbre

      • Naked - Cheesa
        18/11/16
        To be fair to Cheesa, we would, under normal circumstances, rate the cover of her single Naked with full points. Not only is the artist on the cover, but she is demonstrating the title of the song by appearing naked. Bravo! What we did on the remix was only to reflect on the name Cheesa, by repla

      • Naked Truth - Jeanette
        17/11/16
        We so enjoy remixing artwork for singles or albums which have 'naked' in the title. On this occasion it is the turn of Jeanette and her album Naked Truth. The original cover shows the singer sitting quietly in a corner but is she naked? No. And that's the truth! On the remix we f

      • The Hardest Button To Button - The White Stripes
        16/11/16
        What is The Hardest Button To Button? According to the original cover of the single by The White Stripes, the answer is a button with the number '3' on it, though it does appear that the person pressing the button has a broken finger, which can't make it any easier. On the remix we

      • The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking - Roger Waters
        15/11/16
        We have to hand it to Roger Waters, the cover of his album The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking ably demonstrates some of the pros. It is, of course, perfectly normal to find a naked babe standing by the side of the street with her thumb out trying to flag down a vehicle to give her a lift. So much so

      • I Hear Music In The Streets - Unlimited Touch
        14/11/16
        What do you hear? I Hear Music In The Streets, and so, it seems, do Unlimited Touch. That may be the case, but the cover of their single has no indication that they are hearing music, nor of where the street is. On the remix we find a babe dancing in the street, so clearly there must be music arou

      • My Toot Toot - Denise Lasalle
        13/11/16
        Don't play with My Toot Toot, is what Denise Lasalle told us not to do. But given the smile she is exuding on the cover of her single, you are left wondering whether someone hasn't already tweaked her toot toot to her satisfaction (which is why she wishes no further interaction with it).

      • Rocket Man - Elton John
        12/11/16
        Another remix for Elton John (or Frisbee Headland as he is known here at AllBum.Art for reasons that are too complex to get into). Continuing the 'outer space' theme, we find Rocket Man (I Think It's Going To Be A Long Long Parenthesis). On the original cover we find Mr Dwight lookin

      • Dancing In Outer Space - Atmosfear
        11/11/16
        Get your space suits ready as we head off Dancing In Outer Space with Atmosfear. And on the original cover that's exactly what we have - someone is a space suit - and they may be dancing though we are reliably informed (Dave's mum said so) that the material of the suits is quite bulky and

      • Explosion - Champagne
        10/11/16
        We like the original cover of Explosion by Champagne, as it promises so much. A babe, in high heels and stockings ready to pop a cork and let the champagne flow. Nice. On the remix we find that the bottle is open, the champagne has flowed and the stockings and heels are nowhere to be seen. Not ju

      • Contrasts - David Carroll
        09/11/16
        A real oldie, this 1959 album from David Carroll called Contrasts. On the original cover we find Mr Carroll in his 1950s swimming costume ready to dive into a bucket of water whilst a bikini
        clad beach babe poses in front of him (and somewhat to his surprise it would seem). On the remix the

      • Best Of - The Fatback Band
        08/11/16
        Another cover which scores quite highly without the remix, the Best Of The Fatback Band shows us a cute babe who is using her hand to do the job that her panties would more commonly undertake. On the remix little has changed other than that the hands of the babe concerned have moved to her hips, th

      • Naive - The Kooks
        07/11/16
        What is Naive about the cover of The Kooks song? It seems that the situation is that some guy is sitting next to some babe who seems to have reasonable legs. Beyond that we can't tell any more about the story. On the remix we find that the guy has had a better chance to examine the goods and

      • Let No Man Put Asunder - First Choice
        06/11/16
        What a cute play on words. When First Choice sing Let No Man Put Asunder, they could equally be singing Let No Man Put Us Under. See what they did there? Well let's see what we did on the remix as we replaced the skin-tight leotard wearing band members with a wedding which doesn't look

      • Fire Brigade - The Move
        05/11/16
        Having seen our recent The Move regular contributor Phil Darnall of England sent us this remix of Fire Brigade. Phil tells us that in England on 5 November there are lots of fires built and burned all over the country to celebrate the fact that the government was not burned down in the sixteenth ce

      • Boogie Down - Blackwell
        04/11/16
        It can be disappointing to stumble across the artwork for an album which really doesn't need remixing, as where's the fun in that. So the cover for Boogie Down by Blackwell, which already features two naked babes, really does not require a remix. That doesn't mean we can't try,

      • New Shoes - Paolo Nutini
        03/11/16
        So, Paolo Nutini wishes to regale us with his song about New Shoes does he? That's as maybe, but taking a look at the cover artwork of his single, we can't even see if he is wearing shoes, let alone how aged they are. On the remix we find a babe wearing very shiny high heel shoes. Are t

      • Wicked Game - Chris Isaak
        02/11/16
        What a Wicked Game you play, that is what Chris Isaak sings. But does the cover artwork for his single explain anything about the nature of this game? It doesn't (other than, perhaps, having made Mr Isaak seem a little glum). The remix shows us more of the game, which appears to involve tapi

      • Bring Me To Live - Evanescence
        01/11/16
        Halloween might be over, so it's time to revive those flagging senses and what reinvigorate the body. In effect you need to Bring Me To Life, which Evanescence can help us with. The thing is, on the original cover, the band member facing us seems more deadly than alive. To be fair, on the re

    • October
      • Halloween - Misfits
        31/10/16
        Halloween is finally upon us, as fiendish ghouls and ghastly fiends take to the streets. The Misfits provide us with today's appropriately titled remix. On the original cover we find the band members looking suitably monochrome and blurred. On the remix we find a Halloween misfit, in the sha

      • Devil Gate Drive - Suzi Quatro
        30/10/16
        As the devilish day approaches, we continue our series of Halloween remixes with Devil Gate Drive by Suzi Quatro. On the original cover we find Ms Quatro standing on top of three folk who seem to be clawing at here. But where is the gate? It's on the remix of course, where a mature babe has

      • Spiderwebs - No Doubt
        29/10/16
        Our short season of Halloween remixes continues with Spiderwebs by No Doubt. On the original cover we find the band members trying to look spooky against the backdrop of a spider's web which has clearly been airbrushed in afterwards. Poor show! On the remix we find a babe who appears to be c

      • Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) - David Bowie
        28/10/16
        Another in this week's series of Halloween remixes by none other than David Bowie. His album Scary Monsters and his single Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) makes ideal material for a remix, not least because the original cover isn't particularly scary or creepy at all. On the remix, tho

      • The Ballad Of Peter Pumpkinhead - XTC
        27/10/16
        Our remix of The Ballad Of Peter Pumpkinhead not only falls into the category of Halloween remixes but also into our XXX-rated remixes. On the original cover we find what is presumably Peter Pumpkinhead (his head does not look particularly pumpkin shaped) being burnt at a stake, no doubt a warlock.

      • Freak On A Leash - Korn
        26/10/16
        Korn with their single Freak On A Leash is another ideal candidate for a Halloween remix, especially as the original cover which shows no signs of any freaks or any leashes, nor the band, has any real connection with the song. On the remix we find a babe who has been tied down by a large chain (tec

      • Scared - Slacker
        25/10/16
        Woooo, be Scared, it's Slacker and their crazy single cover. Crazy their cover may be, but scary it is not. Unless you happen to be frightened by letters printed on a Dymo. That is why we, at AllBum.Art are here. An on the remix we find a babe who looks very scared. Part of the reason she

      • Road To Hell - Chris Rea
        24/10/16
        When Chris Rea sings about the Road To Hell you would expect him to give some kind of direction so that it's clear where to avoid (or where to go) if you wanted to find Hades. On the original single cover artwork, though, all we can see is an odd cube floating in space. Thankfully on the remi

      • Walking Dead - Puressence
        23/10/16
        As Halloween is just a week away, we thought we would bring you a whole week of Halloween remixes. Kicking off the week is Walking Dead by Puressence. The original cover for their single shows the back of a stone warthog (isn't that the one from Hogwarts?). But it's not walking and alth

      • The Bartender And The Thief - Stereophonics
        22/10/16
        Ask yourself... What would the cover of a single called The Bartender And The Thief look like? According to the Stereophonics, it looks like a blurred speeding red lorry. According to us, it looks like a thief in overalls is stealing the clothes from a busty barmaid in yellow high heels. Now, as

      • Change Clothes - Jay-Z
        21/10/16
        Let's Change Clothes, or at least that is what Jay-Z would have us do. To help us with this, he has provided us with a threatening stance which is less encouragement and more coercion. That may explain why the babe on the remix is having so much trouble with his instructions. She has clearly

      • You'll Never Know - Hi-Gloss
        20/10/16
        You'll Never Know anything about the song if the only information from Hi-Gloss that you had to go on was the cover of their single. Well, perhaps you would know that there was a babe painted in hi-gloss paint. The remix, to be fair, doesn't really help. All that we have done is taken a

      • Another Day In Paradise - Phil Collins
        19/10/16
        What does Another Day In Paradise look like? If we are to believe the cover of Phil Collins' single, it looks like a monochrome, sullen experience. No! That's not what another day in paradise looks like. It looks like a sunny beach with a blue sky and golden sand. And to make it parad

      • Oblivious - Aztec Camera
        18/10/16
        So, where do we start with the original cover of Oblivious by Aztec Camera? For starters, the girl may be oblivious to something, but what it is that she is oblivious to? And is she Aztec? Well she may be but then again, she could just be wearing a vaguely south American scarf. Thank goodness, t

      • On My Radio - The Selecter
        17/10/16
        A triple-play from The Selecter as we remix their 70's ska classic, On My Radio. On the original cover we find the band members in their two-tone outfits singing on a stage. Maybe this is being broadcast on the radio, maybe it isn't. On the first remix we find a babe who may be broadcas

      • Rat In Mi Kitchen - UB40
        16/10/16
        Two in a row (that's the whole weekend) for UB40. On the original cover for Rat In Mi Kitchen, we find a red and yellow rat with a black and white tail, sniffing around the name of the band. But where is the kitchen? On the remix we find a babe who is trying to catch a rat that has been let

      • Red Red Wine - UB40
        15/10/16
        Another remix for those reggae rebels UB40. The original cover artwork for Red Red Wine shows the band posing for the camera (that old thing again). But there is no wine anywhere. On the remix we find three babes, each with a glass of red wine in their hand. It seems they may have had a little t

      • 10c A Dance - The Flirts
        14/10/16
        You don't get much for 10c, but if you ask The Flirts, this is the going rate for a dance with the, or at least it is if the title of their album 1c A Dance is to be believed. On the remix we find a much more realistic situation based on inflation and today's paid dancing sector, as a bab

      • All Fall Down - Ultravox
        13/10/16
        Another remix for Scottish songsters Ultravox. This time it is for their 1986 single, All Fall Down. The original cover fails on so many fronts, it's not even worth discussing. The remix is worth discussing, as we find a group of babes who have all fallen down. It is worth discussing becaus

      • The Show Must Go On - Queen
        12/10/16
        Another remix for rock legends Queen. On the original cover artwork for The Show Must Go On, we find little other than the name of the song, the name of the band, and a regal logo. On the remix we find out more about the show which appears to be some kind of naked cabaret, performed by a group of

      • Heartbreak Radio - Roy Orbison
        11/10/16
        Roy Orbison, or the Big O as he was often known, is perhaps most famous for his single Oh, Pretty Woman. So it is therefore a shame that on the cover of his single Heartbreak Radio, there is no pretty woman. Thankfully on the remix this problem has been fixed and there is not a pretty woman who mu

      • Doctorin' The Tardis - The Timelords
        10/10/16
        Continuing the outer space theme from yesterday a bit, here's a remix of Doctorin' The Tardis by The Timelords. The original cover has a car that claims to be a Ford Timelord, and also claims to have made a record. On the remix we find the tardis (a British police box for the uninitiated)

      • Venus And Mars - Jo Breezer
        09/10/16
        Nothing better for a good remix than a space-related song, and hence Venus And Mars by Jo Breezer provides an ideal opportunity to mix our love of remixes and babes, with all things outer-spatial. On the original cover, we find Ms Breezer wandering through a field, on a planet that looks very suspi

      • What's Your Sign - Desree
        08/10/16
        What's Your Sign, asks Des'ree. Is it Scorpio? Actually, it isn't. We prefer a different kind of sign, more specifically a street sign. And we aren't alone in our preferences as on the remixed single cover we find a babe showing us her favorite street sign, the 'turn lef

      • Red Alert - Basement Jaxx
        07/10/16
        If you are going to issue a Red Alert, which is what Basement Jaxx have done, you need to be very clear on the reason. You can't just go around issuing such high level warnings without some purpose. On the original cover artwork for the single, it is definitely not clear what the point of the

      • Gimme Dat Banana - Black Gorilla
        06/10/16
        Gimme dat, gimme dat, Gimme Dat Banana, sings the jungle-worthy Black Gorilla. Actually, we give the band the thumbs up for the original cover which shows a black gorilla swiping a banana from a cheeky monkey. The remix takes a slightly different tack as one babe asks the other to give her a banan

      • Some Girls - Ultimate Kaos
        05/10/16
        Would you believe it, there is another song called Some Girls, this one by self-proclaimed Ultimate Kaos. The cover of their single, however, fails in exactly the same way that yesterday's remix by Racey does - there are no girls on the cover. The remix once again comes to the rescue as we fi

      • Some Girls - Racey
        04/10/16
        Oh dear. Where do we begin with the cover artwork for Some Girls by Racey? It is another of those 'let's showcase the good looking band members' types of cover (we really should coin a term for such covers) and is lacking in two very important respects:The remix solves both these pr

      • Class/Style (I've Got It) - Linda Lewis
        03/10/16
        Linda Lewis tells us that Class/Style (I've Got It). Probably, for the 1980s, her denim jacket and pearl necklace and earrings were the height of style and class, but we aren't so sure. On the remix we find a babe in a hat, lacy panties and high heels which we think looks far more classy

      • End Of The Road - Boyz II Men
        02/10/16
        Another remix for Philly soulsters Boyz II Men. So what do the 'boyz' tell us we will find at the End Of The Road? According to their original cover artwork, it will be themselves. OK, for some that may be enough. On the remix, though, we find a babe wearing lots of fishnet and not in

      • Sunny Afternoon - The Kinks
        01/10/16
        October may be upon us but that doesn't mean grey days and rainy afternoons all the time, there is still room for the odd Sunny Afternoon and so what better time to remix this cover from The Kinks. On the original artwork is one of those 'let's show off the band' types but is it

    • October
      • I (Who Have Nothing) - Shirley Bassey
        30/09/16
        Shirley Bassey sings about someone for who the phrase I (Who Have Nothing) is apparently applicable. On the original cover artwork we find Ms Bassey but she seems to have quite a lot - a dress, some jewelry, an expensive hairdo. On the remix we find a babe who also seems to have an expensive haird

      • The Red The White The Black The Blue - Hope Of The States
        29/09/16
        One thing we can say about the original front cover artwork for the single from Hope Of The States is that it does contain the various colors that the title of their song The Red The White The Black The Blue sings about, but in a confused American/British flag fusion kind of way. On the remix we fi

      • Pull Shapes - The Pipettes
        28/09/16
        The Pipettes want to Pull Shapes, or at least that is what the song is called. On the original single front cover artwork, we find the band holding onto the logo for the band's name and though you could kind of call that pulling shapes in a 'vogue' kind of way, there's not much

      • Higher - The Saturdays Featuring Flo Rida
        27/09/16
        Higher, is where The Saturdays Featuring Flo Rida are telling us to go. The main thing that is higher on the original single cover artwork is the heels on the two babes in the middle and the babe second from right who seems to have jumped into the air. On the remix we find a babe swinging on, now

      • Welcome Home - Peters & Lee
        26/09/16
        This song by Peters & Lee is meant to greet us with a Welcome Home. On the original single front cover artwork the two band members are hugging and although this is quite welcoming, there's no home. On the remix, a woman is standing by the front door of her house waiting to welcome home h

      • Finally Found - Honeyz
        25/09/16
        The Honeyz have Finally Found something or other, but from the original single front cover artwork, the only thing they seem to have found is a tailor who has made suits that are too low cut for them. On the remix we find a dude who has finally found the source of his babe's pleasure. The look

      • Whisky In The Jar - Thin Lizzy
        24/09/16
        Yesterday we remixed a single by Philip Lynott the guitarist and lead singer of Thin Lizzy and today it is the turn of the band themselves and their song Whisky In The Jar (note there is no 'e' in Whisky as they are obviously drinking Scotch, not Irish Whiskey, which is odd given the herit

      • Yellow Pearl - Philip Lynott
        23/09/16
        Famously the lead singer with Thin Lizzy, Yellow Pearl is a solo outing for Philip Lynott. On the original single cover artwork we find Mr Lynott looking all rock and roll with his electric guitar, his cowboy boots and his fuzzy mop of a haircut. On the remix we find a babe who is a pearl of a gir

      • Last One Standing - Girl Thing
        22/09/16
        There is a puzzle to be solved here. Girl Thing claim that there should be a Last One Standing, but on the original cover artwork of their single, two are squatting down and three are jumping in the air. None of them are standing, not even a last one. On the remix we find a lone babe standing on

      • Ain't Your Mama - Jennifer Lopez
        21/09/16
        Not only a triple-play, but another remix that falls into our category of X-rated remixes. On the original single cover artwork, we find Jennifer Lopez holding a hat. How we are supposed to know that this indicated that she is not your mama is unclear, other than the fact that the title of the son

      • Have You Seen Her - Chi-Lites
        20/09/16
        Today The Chi-Lites ask us the question Have You Seen Her? Equally we could as the question, has she seen you? How do we know we could ask this question. Because on the remixed single cover artwork we find a babe who is clearly looking for something or someone and could well be the lost babe that

      • She's So High - Kurt Nilsen
        19/09/16
        Kurt Nilsen seems to think that he is qualified to determine someone babe's altitude and whether or not She's So High. If we are to believe the original single cover artwork, he can do this simply by looking upwards. On the remix we find that the babe who is so high, is sitting on the sea

      • Misery - Indra
        18/09/16
        We like the original single cover artwork for Misery by Indra, largely because of the subtlety of placement of the letters of her name over the chain-mail outfit that she is wearing that would potentially otherwise show of the apparent lack of a bra underneath it. On the remix, the babe posing for

      • Light Of The Moon - The Pierces
        17/09/16
        We are a little confused because on the original front cover artwork for Light Of The Moon by The Pierces, there is no evidence of anything to do with our lunar satellite whatsoever, though there are a few pretty stars around the name of the band. On the remix we find a babe who is on the moon, loo

      • Bad Boys - Alexandra Burke Featuring Flo-Rida
        16/09/16
        One of our very rare and occasional series that we called one for the ladies, courtesy of Alexandra Burke and her song Bad Boys. On the original cover we find Ms Burke but no boys and no indication of bad behavior. On the remix we find five guys who are exhibiting naughty behavior, if not totally

      • Let's Get Excited - Alesha Dixon
        15/09/16
        Let's Get Excited, are the instructions we are given by Alesha Dixon. It is always helpful when issuing such instructions to indicate how it should be brought about, but on the original single cover artwork, all we see is that Ms Dixon is lying down with one arm above her head and her knees be

      • Pissin In The Wind - Badly Drawn Boy
        14/09/16
        Badly Drawn Boy sing about Pissin In The Wind, but their original single cover artwork is neither windy nor pissy. On the X-rated remix, we find a babe who we are sure was drinking beer yesterday with Devlin (the observant will notice she is wearing the same shoes and sunglasses) and as we suspecte

      • Bud, Sweat & Beers - Devlin
        13/09/16
        Oh dear, poor Devlin. Whoever it was that he took on to produce the original artwork for his album Blood, Sweat & Beers, clearly had no idea that it might at least be partially helpful if any of those three topics was somehow reflected on the cover, instead of which we just find a picture of De

      • Winner In You - Patti Labelle
        12/09/16
        We got a bit confused when remixing Winner In You by Patti Labelle as you will see. On the original album cover artwork is what appears to be a Polaroid picture of Ms Labelle, though whether this is a winner or not is down to your tastes. On the remix we find a babe who thinks she has won somethin

      • Army Of Lovers - Lee Ryan
        11/09/16
        An Army Of Lovers, now if that is what Lee Ryan was truly offering then how come on the original single cover artwork there is nothing but a picture of himself? On the remix, this oversight is remedied as we find a whole army of babes who, as far as we can tell, are ready for love being, as it woul

      • Stop This Crazy Thing - Coldcut
        10/09/16
        Our instructions from Coldcut (Featuring Junior Reid & The Ahead Of Our Time Orchestra) is to Stop This Crazy Thing. The original single front cover artwork suggests that the crazy thing that needs stopping is some kind of wooden Godzilla intent on crushing the planet in its teeth. On the remi

      • Warm Wet Circles - Marillion
        09/09/16
        Two of our X-Rated remixes on two consecutive days. It must be the time of year for it. Today is is the turn of Marillion and their song Warm Wet Circles. Now we are not sure what you think of when you consider the notion of warm wet circles, but on the original single cover artwork it seems that

      • Tear Me Apart - Suzi Quatro
        08/09/16
        One in our rare and occasional series of X-rated remixes that we call remi-XXX-es. On the original single cover artwork for Tear Me Apart by Suzi Quatro, we find her screeching into a microphone whilst holding an electric guitar. Why this would tear anyone apart is unclear. On the remix we find a

      • Orange Crush - R.E.M.
        07/09/16
        R.E.M. are regaling us again with their melancholy tones. However, the original single cover artwork for Orange Crush does not provide us with any clue as to what is orange and what is being crushed, whatsoever. On the remix we find a babe dress in orange stockings holding a fierce looking whip.

      • Beachball - Nalin And Kane
        06/09/16
        It may seem a little late in the year to be adding to our summer sizzlers collection but it is still summer (in the Northern hemisphere) and though the days are getting shorter, they are still warm and comforting. So to business... The original single cover artwork for Beachball by Nalin And Kane h

      • Queen Of My Soul - Average White Band
        05/09/16
        Another remix for the Average White Band, this time for their single Queen Of My Soul. On the original single cover artwork, we can see the band members looking at something, but what it is that they are smiling at. On the remix we see the object of their attention, it is, of course, the queen of t

      • Dreaming - Glen Goldsmith
        04/09/16
        It may well be the case that Glen Goldsmith is (or was) in a dreamy mood when he posed for the picture on the original single cover artwork of Dreaming, but it's not that apparent from his gaze. On the remix we find a babe lounging on a chair, eyes closed, feet in the air, and as far as we can

      • Run To You - Whitney Houston
        03/09/16
        When Whitney Houston sings that she should Run To You, you might expect more from the original single cover artwork than a picture of Ms Houston, no matter how melancholy she is looking. What you might expect is a picture of a babe running towards you. So it's handy that on the remix, this is

      • Boys In The Trees - Carly Simon
        02/09/16
        There's nothing particularly wrong about the original album cover artwork for Boys In The Trees by Carly Simon, other than the fact that there are no boys and no trees. Instead we find Ms Simon putting on (or maybe taking off) her stockings. On the remix we have done nothing more than moderni

      • Serious - Pop
        01/09/16
        The thing about the original single cover artwork for Serious by Pop is that the band (all four of them) don't look very serious. Instead they seem to be enjoying standing around on a sunny beach in their swimsuits. On the remix are four babes who look very serious even though they too appear

    • August
      • Dr Love - Tina Charles
        31/08/16
        Feeling unwell in the love department? At a loss how to cure a broken heart? You need the services of Dr Love (or at least that is what Tina Charles should have sung). The question is whether Ms Charles appears in one of these predicaments on the cover of her single. Perhaps she does as she is lo

      • Can You Handle It - Sharon Redd
        30/08/16
        Some songs beg a good remix purely for asking questions that are then not fully answered by the cover of the single, and this is one of those. The cover for Can You Handle It by Sharon Redd shows Ms Redd, but fails to address the question of what it is that we have to determine can, or can not, be

      • Love Is A Stranger - Eurythmics
        29/08/16
        We have taken a little poetic license in producing the remix of Love Is A Stranger by the Eurythmics. In replacing the two weird looking singers of the band, we have used an image that would more accurately fit if the title was 'love is stranger', as we find a babe whose boobs appear cons

      • Get Down - Gene Chandler
        28/08/16
        Yeah, baby, Get Down on that funk-jive master-beat. At least that's how radio DJs of the 1970s introduced Gene Chandler's single. The original cover has the heel of a high heel shoe and what might be a pair of glasses, or a bra (it's difficult to tell) silhouetted against a deep red

      • I'll Stand By You - The Pretenders
        27/08/16
        When The Pretenders sang I'll Stand By You, did they stop to think about what to put on the cover of their single? It seems not, as the picture they chose is of the lead singer standing looking glum holding her guitar. Who is she standing by? The remix solves this problem as a guy stands by

      • Planet Love - DJ Quicksilver
        26/08/16
        Where is Planet Love? According to DJ Quicksilver it is a roiling ball of lava deep in space. Most of us would equate the planet of love as being Venus, however, as this is the most widely recognized planet with love-based credentials. So let us take a look at the surface of planet love and see i

      • Sight For Sore Eyes - M People
        25/08/16
        Another triple-play from us here at AllBum.Art from those burly Brits, M People and their surly song Sight For Sore Eyes. (Note: they aren't really burly and the song isn't surly but the alliteration sounded nice!) What it is about the original cover that would make a sight for sore eyes

      • Agadoo - Black Lace
        24/08/16
        Agadoo doo doo, push pineapple, shake the tree. Now come on, Black Lace, what exactly were you on when you put the lyrics for this song together? It certainly wasn't just pineapple juice. For the remix, and as we have absolutely no idea whatsoever what an agadoo is, we have instead focused o

      • Step It Up - Stereo MCs
        23/08/16
        One of those covers where the band like to pose in 'showbiz' poses, or at least that's what the original artwork for Step It Up by the Stereo MCs says to use here at AllBum.Art. Which is why it needs remixing. And on the remix we find a babe who is stepping up some stairs. Far less

      • Daybreaker - Kenny Hayes
        22/08/16
        A trancey-trancey-bang-bang-breakdown-party type song, Daybreaker by Kenny Hayes is the kind of music you hear at a German nightclub, on a pirate radio station, or when you accidentally tune into MTV Dance. The cover does reflect, in an orange and yellow way, a daybreak, but the remix takes this to

      • Drowning In Berlin - Mobiles
        21/08/16
        [One of those 1980's over romantic new glamorous type affairs here for Mobiles and their single Drowning In Berlin. The thing is, on the cover, there isn't so much as a drop of water in which to drown (though there are lots of overly wet people). On the remix there is just the one babe w

      • A Glass Of Champagne - Sailor
        20/08/16
        Not the first remix for Sailor as it turns out, but this time it's for A Glass Of Champagne. On the original cover we find the band looking somewhat like sailors but with no apparent connection to any kind of Champagne. On the remix the band are gone, as are any nautical connotations, but ins

      • Hi-Heel Sneakers - Tommy Tucker
        19/08/16
        Tommy Tucker sings about Hi-Heel Sneakers on his single and album both of the same name. To give credit where it is due, on the original cover artwork, Mr Tucker is dancing with a babe who appears to be wearing some sneakers with a high heel. We are not sure if these were a thing in 1964 or whether

        18/08/16
        Just when we thought we couldn't find any more songs about flying, Alberta, our resident expert on all things Canadanian points out Flying by Bryan Adams. On the original cover of the groover from Vancouver's single, we find an airborne electric guitar. On the remix, we find two babes wa

      • Purple Love Balloon - Cud
        17/08/16
        Another flying related remix, this time from Cud and their song Purple Love Balloon (a.k.a. Flotavius Purpolis Passionatum). On the original cover we find an odd interpretation of the song's title, with the purple love balloon in question actually being an egg plant. OK, so it's purple b

      • 99 Red Balloons - Nena
        16/08/16
        We are approaching the end of the runway, or more specifically our rather lengthy season of flying themed remixes. And how do you know this? Well we've been reduced to remixing songs with balloons in their title, such as 99 Red Balloons by Nena. This was a massive hit all over Europe in the 1

      • I'm Mandy Fly Me - 10cc
        15/08/16
        How better to continue our series of remixes to do with flying than with this classic song from 10cc entitled I'm Mandy Fly Me. On the original cover we find the band strumming their instruments and strutting their stuff. On the remix we find a babe, presumably the aforementioned Mandy, who is

      • Back In The High Life - Steve Winwood
        14/08/16
        Back In The High Life by Steve Winwood was both a single and an album and continues our theme of flying. On the original cover we find Mr Winwood smiling at something, though the picture is so blurry, it's not evident what that something might be. The remix may answer the question, as we find

      • Jet Airliner - Steve Miller Band
        13/08/16
        Yes, we're still remixing songs connected with flying, and today it's Jet Airliner by the Steve Miller Band. The original cover shows Mr Miller singing with his guitar. But where is the jet airliner? Obviously it's in the remix! It's a DC9 and wouldn't you know it but th

      • Crash - Primitives
        12/08/16
        Whilst we're still on the subject of flying, here's a cautionary tale. Not all flights end up with a happy landing, and here we find Crash by the Primitives. The original cover doesn't show us anything to indicate what has crashed or where, but the remix solves this problem as we fi

      • Baggage Claim - Miranda Lambert
        11/08/16
        Another in our series of remixes to do with flying. And in this we find that the baggage for miss Miranda Lambert can be claimed at belt 24. That's where the Baggage Claim is, right. But on the original cover we find Ms Lambert standing in front of a sofa with her guitar. Where is the belt

      • Fly By II - Blue
        10/08/16
        What could be more associated with flying than a song called Fly By II (what happened to Fly By I?) by Blue. On the original cover artwork we find the band looking all moody (another of those self-centered, self-serving covers). On the remix we find II babes who are ready for their fly-by, being,

      • Flying High - Commodores
        09/08/16
        Flying High is what the Commodores are doing. Or more accurately, if the cover artwork is to be believed, it is the band's logo that is actually soaring above the ground. The remix is simple yet effective, it shows a hot babe flying high over a city, sitting in a helicopter. She needs to be

      • Jet - Paul McCartney And Wings
        08/08/16
        Is there any more obvious a song to remix the cover artwork for when delving into songs about flying than Jet by Paul McCartney And Wings. Not only is the title of the song all aerospatial, but the name of the band is associated with being in the air too. On the original cover we see the clouds ov

      • Cloud Number 9 - Bryan Adams
        07/08/16
        This song is variously titled 'Cloud #9', 'Cloud Number 9' and 'Cloud Number Nine' so take your pick as Bryan Adams seemed to have done, and thrown it at a pot of blue paint which has covered the model on the original cover artwork. As we continue our series of remixes

      • Riding On The Wings - Motiv8
        06/08/16
        We're Riding On The Wings (riding on the wings, riding on the wings) of an angel, or so sings Jocelyn Brown on this single by Motiv8 as we continue our series of remixes related to flying. After all, if you are riding on the wings of an angel, then unless she is a fallen angel, chances are that

      • Benny And The Jets - Elton John
        05/08/16
        There seems to be a little confusion concerning whether this song is entitled Benny And The Jets, or Bennie And The Jets (the Wikipedia entry for the song has both as being correct). Anyhow, Elton John kicked up another storm with the original cover of this single because where is Benny (or Bennie)

      • You Take Me Up - Thompson Twins
        04/08/16
        Yes, we're still in the midst of a set of remixes concerning flying with this remix of You Take Me Up by the Thompson Twins (all three of them). On the original cover all we can see as a tambourine. It is being held high but does it really take you up. On the remix we find a babe in an eleva

      • Learning To Fly - Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers
        03/08/16
        If it wasn't enough that Pink Floyd have a single called Learning To Fly, but so, as we continue our remixes dedicated to flying, does Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers! On the original cover we find the band standing around (what is it with bands that do this on their covers). On the remix we

      • Learning To Fly - Pink Floyd
        02/08/16
        We continue our summer season of flying-based remixes with Learning To Fly by Pink Floyd. Just what the band were thinking when putting together the cover for their single is unknown, but it seems that wearing carpet slippers made of grass is somehow connected with flying. Not for us. Instead we

      • Flying - Cast
        01/08/16
        August is upon us, and so people begin to disappear on their summer vacations. To celebrate their departure, we begin the month with a series of remixes dedicated to Flying, with a song with exactly that title from band Cast. On the original cover we find the band members standing around looking a

    • July
      • Power Of A Woman - Eternal
        31/07/16
        Eternal sing sweetly for us about the Power Of A Woman as the sit sweetly in sepia-toned silence. Now this may be a powerful picture to some people, but we prefer our power more obvious and so on the remix we have replaced the girl band with a woman whose power is so strong, she is connected up to

      • Loving You Has Made Me Bananas - Guy Marks
        30/07/16
        Loving You Has Made Me Bananas, or so sings Guy Marks. As if to demonstrate this, the original cover shows Mr Marks standing impossibly inside the skin of a banana that is being unpeeled by a sexy sixties babe. On the first remix we see a more modern mistress eating a banana. On the second remix.

      • Stop And Stare - One Republic
        29/07/16
        What would make you Stop And Stare? Well, according to One Republic, if the cover of their single is to be believed, it is the chiselled faces of the band themselves. Sadly, that doesn't work for us and so on the remix we find a babe who would certainly make you stop and stare if you bumped i

      • High - Lighthouse Family
        28/07/16
        It would seem that the Lighthouse Family may be vertically challenged. The other remix on the AllBum.Art web-site is 'Lifted' and this one is called High. The original cover may show the band members standing on a very high platform, or they may be on the ground, it is difficult to tell.

      • Pool Hall Richard - The Faces
        27/07/16
        Who is Pool Hall Richard? Sadly, we may never know as The Faces chose to display a silhouette of the band members on the cover of their single instead of aiding us by answering the question. In the remix, the answer is still no clearer, but what we do learn is that there seems to be a hot babe si

      • Blue Jean - David Bowie
        26/07/16
        David Bowie is a regular source of remixes here at AllBum.Art so finding Blue Jean here is no real surprise. What is surprising is that the original cover, though very blue, does not introduce us to Jean, whoever she may be. On the remix we find a babe who may, or may not, be called Jean. But she

      • Afternoon Delight - Starland Vocal Band
        25/07/16
        Looking for a little Afternoon Delight, that is what the Starland Vocal Band were trying to do but sadly the cover of their single fails to do this in any satisfactory way. A yellow lion hardly portrays a time of day, let alone an associated emotion. The remix fixed this with a group of ladies sit

      • The Sun Goes Down (Living It Up) - Level 42
        24/07/16
        As The Sun Goes Down, Level 42 entice us to buy their song by putting a badly drawn, 2-dimensional representation of some steps on the cover of their single. Now if you are going to live it up after sunset, or at least during sunset as the sun goes down, it would be helpful to have a party babe to d

      • Oops Upside Your Head - The Gap Band
        23/07/16
        There is a tradition, in some circles, to dance to Oops Upside Your Head by The Gap Band by sitting down on the floor, one person behind another, and then flailing your arms around in time to the music whilst rocking backwards and forwards (no, trust us, there really is). We could not find a suitab

      • Down That Road - Shara Nelson
        22/07/16
        What road should we be heading down, Shara Nelson? Why, Down That Road of course. But which road is that? It is the road where you hold your hands together in prayer and stare out into great white nothingness. OK, but that's not really very helpful is it, couldn't you point us in the ri

      • Cover My Eyes (Pain And Heaven) - Marillion
        21/07/16
        This remix comes with a warning. When a single such as Cover My Eyes (Pain And Heaven) by Marillion comes along, the remix team go a little cooky. The original cover is immensely dull, but the remix truly reflects heaven and pain and if you click to see the full-size version you may definitely want

      • In The Bush - Musique
        20/07/16
        It's nice, sometimes, to be able to bring you remixes of tracks where even the original artwork is rare. Today it's the turn of Musique and their single In The Bush. It appears there are several meanings of the word 'bush' and on the original cover it seems to mean 'piece

      • Lipstick Powder And Paint - Shakin' Stevens
        19/07/16
        Good 'ole Shakin Stevens, whoever he is, sings about Lipstick Powder And Paint. But he isn't wearing any of those things on the cover artwork of his single. Thankfully there is an easy fix for this and on the remix we see a babe tidying her lipstick up, after having already dealt with he

      • Paint Me Down - Spandau Ballet
        18/07/16
        Just because we had a whole week dedicated to Spandau Ballet remixes, doesn't mean there isn't room not to add yet another one. And hence we give you Paint Me Down. We have no idea what the picture on the original cover is meant to be illustrating, but we do know that on the remix is a w

      • Nice - Fat Larry's Band
        17/07/16
        Another remix for Fat Larry's Band, and this time it's Nice! Nice, according to the original cover artwork, infers a bride wearing white lingerie including fishnet tights and high heels. Nice would be a good word to describe that apparition. In the remix nothing much has changed other t

      • Zoom - Fat Larry's Band
        16/07/16
        So what is going on, on the original cover of Zoom by Fat Larry's Band? It seems that there is a babe holding a hack-saw standing amidst a gang of jailbirds, whilst a large guy (Fat Larry himself no doubt) appears to be trying to keep them at bay. The remix is much more zoom-related and has a

      • Smokin' In The Boy's Room - Brownsville Station
        15/07/16
        Brownsville Station don't tell us anything of value with the picture on the cover of their single Smokin' In The Boy's Room (which, we note from a pedantic perspective, with the apostrophe so positioned refers to a room that belongs to just one boy - had it been a room belonging to mu

      • Another Suitcase In Another Hall - Madonna
        14/07/16
        Another Suitcase In Another Hall by Madonna is a song taken from the musical Evita. The original cover artwork may have even been set on the streets of Argentina where the musical is set. The remix sees something very odd occurring. One stocking-clad babe is sealing another similarly attired babe

      • Painter Man - The Creation
        13/07/16
        Painter Man by The Creations is perhaps better know for the cover version by Boney M. And the reason why may be clear from the cover of the single. On the original artwork we find the members of the band, standing around looking moody (why do so many bands think that this makes for a good cover?)

      • I Missed Again - Phil Collins
        12/07/16
        I Missed Again, or at least that is what Phil Collins tells us. On the original cover artwork, we can see that Mr Collins has indeed missed a little, in that his upper torso is offset from his lower torso. On the remix we find a woman who seems to have been aiming to piss in a pot, but has missed.

      • Humpin' Around - Bobby Brown
        11/07/16
        Another AllBum.Art remix for Bobby Brown, this time for his single Humpin' Around. Now a song with such a suggestive title owes itself a pretty good cover, right? Not so. Though a picture of Mr Brown clicking his fingers in a potentially jovial mood may be some people's dream of humpin&

      • Look Away - Big Country
        10/07/16
        Look Away, go on, avert your eyes. Turn the other cheek. Divert your gaze. That is what Big Country would have us do but then again, the original cover of their single is so uninspiring that looking at something else is definitely a better option. On the remix we find a babe strolling along a har

      • Hello This Is Joanie - Paul Evans
        09/07/16
        Hello This Is Joanie (subtitled The Telephone Answering Machine Song) deserves to get Paul Evans a vote for one of the most tantalizingly dull single covers ever. Instead of showing us who Joanie is, he insists on just showing us the other end of the phone line. We, however, have managed to find a

      • Love Like A Fountain - Ian Brown
        08/07/16
        What does Love Like A Fountain look like? Well (well - get it?), according to Ian Brown, it looks like a very badly scrawled picture of his face. Then again, some may argue that the aesthetics of such a picture are counter-pointed by the underlying juxtaposition of the colors and the brush-strokes

      • Doctor Doctor - Thompson Twins
        07/07/16
        The first ever AllBum.Art four-play, yes not one, not two but three remixes of the cover of Doctor Doctor by the Thompson Twins. On the original cover we see the band members doing in impersonation of what could only be described as a witchdoctor. On the first remix, we find a babe lying down on t

      • Full Moon - Brandy
        06/07/16
        Another in our occasional series of XXX-rated remixes that we like to call 'remi-XXX-es'. Today it is the turn of R&B singer Brandy and her album Full Moon. On the original cover we find a picture of the singer, and of the moon, so a reasonably good score for artistic interpretation.

      • Caught In The Middle - A1
        05/07/16
        A1 are Caught In The Middle, or so they say. But on the cover of their single, it seems that it is some kind of black pole that is caught in the middle of the band, and not the band members that are caught up. On the remix we find a guy who is definitely caught in the middle... of two buxom babes

      • Amorica - Black Crowes
        04/07/16
        What screams 'Fourth of July' better than Amorica by the Black Crowes. Or more specifically, the nice star spangled banner that adorns the front of the cover of the album. Or even more specifically, the promise of sexy celebrations that lies beneath the flag. Our first remix makes the fl

      • Chooza Looza - Maria Willson
        03/07/16
        We have no idea what Maria Willson is singing about in her single Chooza Looza. Is it, on the one hand, shorthand for 'choose a loser' meaning that someone has been given a choice but whichever choice they take, will mean they end up with a loser. Or does it mean 'chooser, loser'

      • Take It To The Top - Kool And The Gang
        02/07/16
        It would seem, from the original cover artwork of Take It To The Top by Kool And The Gang, that what has been taken to the top, is not the band, but the camera that has taken the picture of the band. We know this because of the odd perspective of the photo. In the remix we see a babe who has been

      • Sunshine - Gabrielle
        01/07/16
        What better way to start July than with a song about Sunshine, and so we find ourselves remixing a song with just that name by Gabrielle. We struggled with the original cover, to decide whether the odd lighting conditions were caused by sunshine, or whether they were a symptom of a badly set-up cam

    • July
      • When You Walk In The Room - The Searchers
        30/06/16
        What happens When You Walk In The Room? According to The Searchers original single cover artwork, it is that everything turns a shade of cyan. Really? Is that the most likely thing to happen? On the remix we see what happens when a babe walks into the room, the jaw of the guy looking at her drops

      • Maggie's Farm - Bob Dylan
        29/06/16
        Bob, Bob, Bob... If you are going to sing about Maggie's Farm, at least show us on the original artwork, some idea of what Maggie looks like and what she does on her farm. Sadly it seems that Bob Dylan was more concerned with putting his own face on the front cover of his single. On the remix,

      • Everyone's Gone To The Moon - Johnathan King
        28/06/16
        Everyone's Gone To The Moon, is what Johnathan King thought. This is perhaps because they were all terribly bored with his original single cover artwork which, though futuristic for the 1960s, does not provide us with any motivation to go to the Moon. On the remix we find a babe who seems to

      • Making Up Again - Goldie
        27/06/16
        Will you look at that now? Goldie are telling us that they are Making Up Again. Does that mean that they have fallen out with each other? If their sullen faces on the original single cover artwork are anything to go by, that may well be the truth. On the remix we find a babe who is having her ma

      • White Ladder - David Gray
        26/06/16
        Is that a White Ladder showing on the original album cover artwork by David Gray? It looks more like a pink line sloping at an angle that a ladder would not normally make without falling over. It probably is a pink line after all, not a white ladder. So thankfully the remix is more clear on this

      • Bare Stripped Naked - Bettie Serveert
        25/06/16
        Three words that are commonly used here at AllBum.Art, Bare Stripped Naked but this time altogether in a single album title by Bettie Serveert. Whether Ms Serveert is any of the aforementioned adjectives is unclear from orange-tinted cover of her album. On the remix we find a babe who is all of th

      • Sitting At Home - Honeycrack
        24/06/16
        An odd one for us here at AllBum.Art as we remix some original single artwork and make it less off-the-wall. The cover for Sitting At Home by Honeycrack shows the two band members sitting around at home, which scores nearly 100% as it accurately reflects the song and the band. Why they are sittin

      • Wild Wood - Paul Weller
        23/06/16
        Wild Wood is both an album and a single for Paul Weller. Here we focus on the remix of the artwork for his 1999 album. On the original cover we find the silhouette of Mr Weller against a backdrop of some greenery which could, potentially be a wild wood, but it's not definite. On the remix we

      • Ladies Night - Kool And The Gang
        22/06/16
        Nothing says 'party' better than Ladies Night by Kool And The Gang. But what kind of party is it? The original single cover artwork suggests that the party consists of three girls wearing catsuits standing around on some stairs pouting. The remix shows a similar party scene but now four

      • Let Her Go - Passenger
        21/06/16
        Not just a fabled AllBum.Art triple-play, but one of our rare X-Rated remixes. On the original single cover artwork for Let Her Go by Passenger, we can only ponder at who she is and why we need to let her go. Maybe he has tied up some babe to the ferris-wheel in the background. On the first remix

      • Come Undone - Robbie Williams
        20/06/16
        We think, though it's not exactly clear, that what has Come Undone on the original cover artwork of Robbie Williams single is most likely some kind of high powered spring. Though the spring is not visible on the cover, something does seem to have propelled Mr Williams into the ether. It'

      • Fight Dirty - Charlie
        19/06/16
        We can see why the original album cover artwork for Fight Dirty by Charlie would reflect the title, as what we can only presume is Ms Charlie looks as if she is ready to pull a few dirty moves if threatened. On the remix we find two babes already engaged in an epic battle and who are clearly fighti

      • Avenging Angels - Space
        18/06/16
        Now far be it from us to suggest any kind of idiocy on the part of those responsible for developing the original single cover artwork for Avenging Angels by Space, but a metal cheese-grater that has been given metal angel wings, arms and a halo fails in one extremely specific way. The song title ha

      • Silly Games - Lindy Layton Featuring Janet Kaye
        17/06/16
        Does anyone have any idea what Silly Games are being played by Lindy Layton Featuring Janet Kaye? No. And why not? Because the original single cover artwork, whilst providing a fetching picture of Ms Layton, is otherwise so blurry as to obscure any potential opportunity to see what the underlying

      • Miss You - The Rolling Stones
        16/06/16
        We think, although it's not totally clear from the original single cover artwork, that when The Rolling Stones sing Miss You, they may have accidentally been late for some appointment or other, as Mr Jagger, the lead singer, is holding his hand to his head as if he forgot and is now angry with

      • Angel Street - M People
        15/06/16
        What would you expect to see if you wandered down Angel Street? Well, according to M People, it would be the lead singer of the band sitting on a leather sofa, wearing a black velvet coat. On the remixed single cover artwork we find our view of what you would see on Angel Street, which is an angel

      • Looking For Clues - Robert Palmer
        14/06/16
        So Robert Palmer wants us Looking For Clues, does he. Let's take a look at the original single cover artwork and see what we can find. Well, ther's Mr Palmer, standing in the sea, wearing blue jeans and a t-shirt and who seems to be holding something, maybe a book, in his hand. Are we m

      • Leave A Light On - Belinda Carlisle
        13/06/16
        Ah, Belinda, Belinda, Belinda. We do not know what Belinda Carlisle was thinking when she put together the cover for her single Leave A Light On, because there is nothing to show what kind of light it is, or whether it's even on or not. And what is it with the centaur in the bottom left hand

      • Costello Music - The Fratellis
        12/06/16
        We have to admit to being easily confused by what the hell the designers of some album artwork were trying to do. Take, for example, Costello Music by The Fratellis. Not only have we no idea what Costello Music actually is, but the cover tells us only that to listen to it you should ideally be fem

      • Raise Your Glass - Pink
        11/06/16
        OK, we have to admit that we are a little confused. When Pink sings Raise Your Glass, we would expect the original single cover artwork to have some reason to celebrate, or even a picture of a drink. But no: all we find is Ms Pink sitting on a 1960s style olive green chair. On the remix we find a

      • Chocolate - Kylie Minogue
        10/06/16
        Babes and chocolate, is there any better combination (maybe babes and beer?) The thing is that on the original single cover artwork for Chocolate by Kylie Minogue, there is no evidence of any chocolate, which is very appointing. On the remix we find a babe dousing herself with chocolate sauce whic

      • Swing Low Sweet Chariot - Eric Clapton
        09/06/16
        We can vaguely forgive Eric Clapton for putting himself as the mean feature of the original single cover artwork for Swing Low Sweet Chariot, because we don't think that the alternative would have necessarily been acceptable in the 70s. Let us discover why... On the remix we find Chariot (that

      • Back Together - Babybird
        08/06/16
        Yet another Babybird remix sent in by Phil Darnall of England. And without even asking, we can see why this song would need a remix. The original single cover artwork for Back Together is so lacking in any content, it may as well not be there at all. In the remix we find two babes whose backs are

      • Ugly Beautiful - Babybird
        07/06/16
        Another Babybird remix by Phil Darnall of England, today it is the turn of their album Ugly Beautiful. According to Phil, the original single cover artwork shows something that is neither ugly nor beautiful but is just downright repugnant, being what appears to be the foot of someone in a morgue. O

      • You're Gorgeous - Babybird
        06/06/16
        It's always nice to receive user-submitted entries, and this is from Phil Darnall of England. Phil tells us:Lots of girls think that when Babybird are singing You're Gorgeous, it's a touching love melody. If you listen to the words, they are singing about getting a girl to spread he

      • Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space - Spiritualized
        05/06/16
        Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space, is what Spiritualized tell us. But their album artwork says otherwise. The original cover says that we are floating in a world consisting of a number of circles. Maybe that is what space looks like but we think the remix looks more like it as a babe

      • A Spanner In The Works - Rod Stewart
        04/06/16
        Another remix for Rod Stewart, this time it is the original album cover artwork for A Spanner In The Works, that has been given a make-over. On the original cover we find Mr Stewart sitting on a chair. Where's the spanner, you ask? It's on the remix we reply, where we find a babe standi

      • All Thru The Night - POV Featuring Jade
        03/06/16
        So POV Featuring Jade (as we would call it now, instead of all that POV Duet With Jade nonsense) had a song called All Thru The Night, and how wicked they felt having purposefully misspelled through. The original single cover artwork shows the band members and although it could be night, there is no

      • Bad Actress - Terrorvision
        02/06/16
        When we looked it up in a dictionary, it seemed that the definition of actress involves the person concerned being female, yet on the original single cover artwork for Terrorvision's song Bad Actress, all we see are the band members who are all male. Now maybe one of them is actually female an

      • Hourglass - Squeeze
        01/06/16
        The totally confusing thing about the original single artwork for Hourglass by Squeeze is that on the front cover the one thing that is completely absent is any sign of anything that resembles an hourglass. Instead there is a badly drawn (or 'artistic' if you will) drawing of what appears

    • May
      • Ridin' Solo - Jason Derulo
        31/05/16
        We give Jason Derulo one bonus point for remembering to put an apostrophe to replace the missing letter in the title of his single Ridin' Solo. However, we will take that point away as the original front cover artwork of his single gives us no indication of what it is that he is ridin'.

      • Love Eviction - Quartz Lock Featuring Lonnie Gordon
        30/05/16
        It may be possible to determine, from the original front cover of the single Love Eviction by Quartz Lock Featuring Lonnie Gordon why there was some kind of expulsion of love going on. After all, Ms Gordon's t-shirt is revealing more than perhaps is necessary and that could have caused some ki

      • You Can Get It If You Really Want - Jimmy Cliff
        29/05/16
        That old reggae classic, You Can Get It If You Really Want, is the subject of today's AllBum.Art remix. On the original single cover artwork we tried our hardest to understand what you could get if you really wanted. Presumably something that you might not want, but only if you really want.

      • Raise Your Hands - Reel 2 Reel Featuring The Mad Stuntman
        28/05/16
        Raise Your Hands is what Reel 2 Real Featuring The Mad Stuntman ask us, or indeed tell us, to do. But oddly on the original single cover artwork, the two guys pictured are not raising their hands at all. Nor are either of them performing any mad stunts. On the remix we find a babe who is performi

      • Stand By Your Man - Tammy Wynette
        27/05/16
        Although the original single cover artwork for Stand By Your Man shows Tammy Wynette in what is presumably a standing position, it shows no signs of the man of whom she sings as being next to her when she is standing. On the remix we find a babe standing close to her man. Not strictly by him in th

      • Ace Of Spades - Motorhead
        26/05/16
        The Ace Of Spades - is this simply a playing card, or is it someone who is expert at digging? If we use the original album (and single of the same name) cover artwork to try and answer this question we find no more information, other than that the band members could probably use someone to help wit

      • Any Way You Want It - Journey
        25/05/16
        Journey suggest that you can have it Any Way You Want It if, that is, you want a rainbow colored scarab flying towards a blue-black planet with a slightly twisted ring system. Obviously this is what the band wanted at the time, suggesting they may have been on some kind of hallucinogenic drugs. On

      • Ch-Check It Out - The Beastie Boys
        24/05/16
        Let's Ch-Check It Out with the Beastie Boys. And what do we find when we do this, well none other than a rat singing into a microphone. So let's remix this cl-classic and on the re-remix we find two babes and a guy. The guy is looking at the second of the babes. The first of the babes

      • Reflections - Carly Simon
        23/05/16
        Reflections is Carly Simon's greatest hits album. On the original cover artwork we find Ms Simon grinning inanely at us. On the remix we find a couple of differences. Firstly the babe in the picture has a very clear reflection in the mirror behind her. Secondly, we thing she has some of the

      • Don't Push It Don't Force It - Leon Haywood
        22/05/16
        Leon Haywood is not wrong when he says Don't Push It Don't Force It, because doing something like that could do serious damage. In his case the damage is to the original single cover artwork where the only thing that is being forced is Mr Haywood's face upon us. On the remix (and th

      • Moonlight Shadow - Mike Oldfield
        21/05/16
        Moonlight Shadow is what Mike Oldfield (occasionally shown as featuring Maggie Reilly) tells us about in his single. On the original cover, it is not clear whether the sea is being lit up by the moonlight or not. But on the remix, it is very clear that it is, indeed, the moon that is causing shado

      • Surprise - Bizarre Inc
        20/05/16
        Another in our very exclusive series of 'triple-X-rated' remixes, or Remi-XXX-es as we like to call them. This time it is the turn of Bizarre Inc, and their single Surprise. On the original cover we find what can only really be described as a hat. If there is anything surprising about it

      • Sky - Sonique
        19/05/16
        Ah, yes, Sky, by Sonique. But oh, the sky that is supposedly in the background of the original cover artwork for the single is not real. How can we tell, well the horizontal striping is a bit of a dead giveaway, unless there were some very odd cloud formations on the day the picture was taken. Th

      • Point Of View - db Boulevard
        18/05/16
        What is the Point Of View of db Boulevard? An interesting question whose answer seems to be to do with cardboard cut-outs, including one of a giant billboard with the band's name on it. The remix, on the other hand, shows a far more picturesque point of view with rolling mountains and lush co

      • Mr President - Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich
        17/05/16
        Some might say that the remix of Mr President by Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich (DBM&T) is a little too subtle, other than, of course, showing a teen babe flashing her ass at us. Why might they think this? Largely because you have to look quite closely to see that the picture has been take

      • Point Of View - Matumbi
        16/05/16
        What is Matumbi's Point Of View? A red jacket, yellow tie and black shirt on a hanger in front of a green curtain, that's what. Yes, some very obscure metaphorical analogies going on here because we assume that they have taken the point of view of someone who has no idea about how to pro

      • Lucky Stars - Dean Friedman
        15/05/16
        Dean Friedman (pronounced 'freed-man' and not 'fried-man' as it would otherwise appear) sings to us about Lucky Stars. But on the cover of his single he looks anything other than lucky, in fact he seems gaunt and dreary, which kind of reflects his music. Anyhow, we thought the

      • Ass Like That - Eminem
        14/05/16
        Eminem, or 'Pinky McToosh' as he is known here at AllBum.Art for reasons that are far too complex and involved to explain here, has become, it seems, a character from Sesame Street on the cover of his single Ass Like That. Of course, what is really needed is an ass, and preferably one tha

      • So You Wanna Go The Whole Way - Roxette
        13/05/16
        So You Wanna Go The Whole Way? That is the question that Swedish songsters Roxette are succinctly asking. The answer, according to the cover of their single is, 'take a look at my cool sunglasses', which for us does not seem to answer the question at all. Maybe that's how they work

      • Short Fat Fannie - Larry Williams
        12/05/16
        Larry Williams sings of a Short Fat Fannie. But on the cover of his original recording, there is only Mr Williams to view with no help constructing a mental picture of what Fannie might look like. If it weren't for the title we wouldn't even know how tall or plump she was. Thankfully th

      • Star To Fall - Cabin Crew
        11/05/16
        Cabin Crew are very definitely waiting for a Star To Fall, the original cover artwork of their single makes this very clear with its vert repetitive text which repeats the same text again and again and again in a very repetitive fashion that repeats itself a lot. But where are the cabin crew? On th

      • Bedsitter - Soft Cell
        10/05/16
        Ah, yes. Soft Cell and Bedsitter. What could possibly say 'bedsitter' more than standing in front of a blue wall covered in knives, spoons and various other kitchen accoutrements. Obviously nothing, if you're the band members. But for us, two alternatives spring to mind. Firstly, a b

      • Everytime In Rains - Ace Of Base
        09/05/16
        So it seems that on the original cover artwork for Everytime It Rains by Ace Of Base, we find the four band members of which at least three are wearing some kind of waterproof clothing (it's not clear if the tunic being worn by the dark-haired babe would provide much protection against precipit

      • Wash In The Rain - The Bees (UK)
        08/05/16
        Now it may just be that on the original cover of Wash In The Rain by The Bees (UK), that there is, in fact, someone or something that is being washed in the rain, but the picture has been so badly cropped that other than possibly indicating that it is raining, there is little extra to go on. In the

      • Rain Down On Me - Kain
        07/05/16
        Continuing on the theme of rain, we have for you, a remix of Rain Down On Me by Kane. The original cover artwork shows a stylized dragon of some kind or other which seems to have been superimposed on a background that might just represent raindrops falling on rain-sodden land. We need things a lit

      • Rain - The Cult
        06/05/16
        We like a good rain-based remix here at AllBum.Art as a sexy babe soaking wet is always a sight to behold. Today it is the turn of The Cult and their single Rain to hit the remix table. The original cover shows a cloud, which may, or may not, be a rain cloud. The remix shows a babe who has gotten

      • We Are Family - Sister Sledge
        05/05/16
        Whilst we are in a family mood, here's another sibling related remix. We Are Family was a hit for Sister Sledge in the 70s and again in the 80s and 90s as a remix, so it is only fitting that the cover of their single (and album of the same name) receives the AllBum.Art treatment. On the origin

      • Daughter - Pearl Jam
        04/05/16
        Just what were Pearl Jam on when they were thinking about what to put on the cover for their single Daughter? In fact what exactly is it that is on the cover? It looks like the inside of a cheese grater lit up in red light. Anyhow, thank goodness for AllBum.Art as we can help sort out the mess fo

      • On My Knees - The 411 Featuring Ghostface Killah
        03/05/16
        411 is a band comprising four cute looking girls, so what is the '11' bit - perhaps this relates to bingo where legs are eleven, or maybe we made that bit up. Either way, the original cover artwork for their single On My Knees Featuring Ghostface Killah (who is so ghostly they don't

      • Played-A-Live (The Bongo Song) - Safri Duo
        02/05/16
        The original single for Safri Duo's Played-A-Live (The Bongo Song) fails in so many ways, it's not even worth counting them. So instead let's just count the bongos on the remixed version and find that there are two of them. A duo of bongos, no less. And the played-a-live bit? Well

      • First Of May - Bee Gees
        01/05/16
        What is the day? It's the first of May. Which can only mean one thing - it's time for a remix. And what better to remix than a song called the First Of May by none other than the Bee Gees. On the original cover we find the band looking like a sixties throwback in black and red. Now of cou

      • Gym And Tonic - Spacedust
        11/04/16
        Did Spacedust know when they released their single Gym And Tonic that their refrain of 'back two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight' would become so memorable? Maybe they did as they chose to decorate the front cover artwork of their single with a picture of a fit babe on a rowing mach

      • California Girls - The Beach Boys
        10/04/16
        Summer may not be here yet, but that doesn't mean we can't not remix this summertime classic by The Beach Boys. Who doesn't know California Girls? It seems that the original designer of the front cover may not have, as instead of the obvious choice of some girls, he chose instead to

      • Deepest Blue - Deepest Blue
        09/04/16
        Not the most inventive of song titles that Deepest Blue have come up with. The song is also called Deepest Blue. It seems that their single cover designer was equally uninventive as the cover just has the name of the band, title of the song and some blue blobs. On the remix the deep blue of the t

      • Downtown - Petula Clark
        08/04/16
        A triple play from us good folk at AllBum.Art of Petula Clark and her song Downtown. On the original single cover artwork is nothing more than Ms Clark with a fetching blue bow in her hair. On the first remix is a babe sitting downtown about to light her cigarette and as she leans over to do this,

      • Baby Jump - Mungo Jerry
        07/04/16
        Mungo Jerry sing a song with the title of Baby Jump. This said, on the original front cover we can't see the baby and can only suppose that she is jumping to the music being played by the band, who are the only people we can see. On the remix artwork is a real babe who is jumping. She does n

      • Up Around The Bend - Creedence Clearwater Revival
        06/04/16
        It would be true to say that the subject of this remix bares an uncanny resemblance to that for Bend And Break by Keane. The main difference is that for Up Around The Bend by Creedence Clearwater Revival the girl shown in the remix (who is in a remarkably similar pose) is on the corner of the stree

      • Dancing With The Captain - Paul Nicholas
        05/04/16
        Today we are Dancing With The Captain, and with Paul Nicholas. On the original single front cover artwork there is just Mr Nicholas and no sign any captain, or even any dancing. On the remix is a salty old sea-dog of a captain and with him is a sexy young sea-kitten who could be going to a party f

      • Messin' - Ladies First
        04/04/16
        Messin' by Ladies First is the subject of today's single front cover artwork remix. On the original we find the band members standing around, but not messin' around. On the remix we find some different babes who are definitely messin' around, though quite why that involves them

      • In My Chair - Status Quo
        03/04/16
        Another remix for those British hard rockers, Status Quo. On the original single cover artwork for their song In My Chair we find nothing more than the band playing their instruments. Where is the chair and who is in it? The remix answers these questions as we find a babe posing in a chair and gi

      • Big Love - Fleetwood Mac
        02/04/16
        So Fleetwood Mac are singing about Big Love, or so we are led to believe from the title of their track. But on the original single cover artwork, all we find is some kind of jungle scene. Now the jungle might be big, and the band might love it, but that is not clear. On the remix we find a big bi

      • First Of Tha Month - Bone Thugs N Harmony
        01/04/16
        Hooray, it's the first of the month, or the First Of Tha Month, as Bone Thugs N Harmony would have it. And what do we do on the first of tha month? Why, it's time to get down and party. Tha original cover doesn't show who is at the party, or what they're doing there but thankfu

      • Never Never - The Assembly
        31/03/16
        Nothing screams 'never never' better than a half-finished letter A (or is is actually meant to be the Greek capital lambda Λ) in red with some of it in grey. At least that's what we are to believe if the original cover artwork for the single Never Never by The Assembly is to be beli

      • Books - Belle And Sebastian
        30/03/16
        Time for a rare album (as opposed to a single) remix from us here at AllBum.Art. The original cover of Books by Belle And Sebastian fails in so many ways that it really isn't of any value to count them. Instead, let's focus on the remix where we find a room full of books. Oh, and just t

      • Chains Of Love - Erasure
        29/03/16
        Today is the turn of Chains Of Love by Erasure for a remix. A question that immediately springs to mind when viewing the original cover is this... are there any chains depicted on the artwork? The answer is not clear. Is there, for example, a chain of pearls? To help clarify this, the remix pres

      • Going Down Town Tonight - Status Quo
        28/03/16
        Anyone would think we had planned this. First a connection from one song to the next by way of dreaming, and then a connection because it's the same band, Status Quo who are Going Down Town Tonight. But what do they expect to find there, themselves in concert? Because that's what the orig

      • Dreamin' - Status Quo
        27/03/16
        Whilst we are on the subject of dreaming, here's another remix by British rockers Status Quo called Dreamin'. On the original cover we see two of the band members, but they look more puzzled than dreamy. On the remix we find a dreamy girl who would be welcome in our dreams any day. In f

      • Dreamer - Livin Joy
        26/03/16

        A triple-play remix from Livin Joy and their Eurodance track Dreamer. The original cover artwork for their single may be dreamy, if ripples in a pool of blue water are your thing. The first remix is far more dreamy as we find a babe lying on her bed in mid dream. The final remix shows yet an

      • Not Such An Innocent Girl - Victoria Beckham
        25/03/16
        Who would have known that fashion designer Victoria Beckham, wife of erstwhile footballer David Beckham, had a solo pop career. Then again, she was part of the internationally renowned Spice Girls. Either way, the cover of her single Not Such An Innocent Girl tends to suggest that she is a little

      • Nights In White Satin - The Moody Blues
        24/03/16
        Those crazy Moody Blues and their Nights In White Satin. What a set of wacky dudes. So much so, that the cover of their single doesn't show any of them wearing white satin, nor does it show anyone else wearing it. The remix solves this as we find a babe lounging around on what looks like an

      • Mercury - Bloc Party
        23/03/16
        Some bands produce singles which are ripe for the picking when it comes to remixing and Bloc Party fall deeply into that category. Here we find their single Mercury, the original cover of which shows someone running a hand through someone's hair. It is not clear if they are one and the same p

      • Nutbush City Limits - Ike And Tina Turner
        22/03/16
        It can be a real pleasure when a picture and a song come together to make the perfect storm of a remix, and Nutbush City Limits by Ike And Tina Turner, is just such an example. The original cover shows Ms Turner resting on a car which, for some reason, has the registration 'Bolic'. She a

      • Only When I Lose Myself - Depeche Mode
        21/03/16
        You know those times when you buy a six-pack of chocolate and find that there's an extra bar in the bag, well today is one of those times. Why? Because this week-long remix of Depeche Mode covers is 8 days long, giving you a whole remix for free (not that you pay for them anyway). So here is

      • Personal Jesus - Depeche Mode
        20/03/16
        It's the end of our week-long Depeche Mode special and as it's a Sunday, we thought that a vaguely religious tone might be appropriate, and so we present Personal Jesus. The original cover alludes to the religiosity of this song through using bars of color in a cross shape. The remix does

      • Master And Servant - Depeche Mode
        19/03/16
        As if you hadn't guessed already, it's Depeche Mode week, and although we've gotten to the week-end, the remixes just keep on coming. The original cover of Master And Servant has the merest suggestion that in a master/servant relationship, some kind of chains may be necessary. The r

      • In Your Room - Depeche Mode
        18/03/16
        Our Depeche Mode remix week continues with In Your Room. The original cover may, or may not, have been taken in your room, or anyone else's room. The problem is that the lighbulb is obscuring any indication of what is in the room, or why you might be there. On the remix we are being invited

      • Barrel Of A Gun - Depeche Mode
        17/03/16
        Another remix in our week long Depeche Mode special in the name of Barrel Of A Gun. The original cover artwork seems a little confused and it is not clear whether there is a gun, or a barrel anywhere in the picture. In the remix, there is a gun, and it's barrel is pointing right at you. And

      • Walking In My Shoes - Depeche Mode
        16/03/16
        Another in our week of Depeche Mode remixes sees us Walking In My Shoes (not to be recommended unless we share the same shoe size). It may just be us, but the contraption on the original cover, the kind of half human, half parrot thing, doesn't even seem to be wearing any shoes. The remix see

      • Stripped - Depeche Mode
        15/03/16
        The second in our week-long Depeche Mode remix special is a remix for Stripped. The original artwork suggests that the stripping that is going in is removing layers of old wallpaper and paint and thus revealing the many unfashionable colors that lie underneath. The remix tells a different story as

      • See You - Depeche Mode
        14/03/16
        Today marks the start of a whole week of remixes of cover artwork for Depeche Mode. Our first remix of the week is for the single See You. On the original cover we find a smoking Joe leaning on a lamppost, looking longingly towards a girl who is looking back at him through the window of her house.

      • Goodbye - The Coral
        13/03/16
        'Yes', said in the kind of creepy slow way that is commonly used in the Simpsons to represent confusidity in the face of embiggened disunderstanding. What exactly The Coral were on when they produced the cover for their single Goodbye, is anyone's guess, though such guesswork is prob

      • She Blinded Me With Science - Thomas Dolby
        12/03/16
        It's interesting, in an uninteresting kind of way, to wonder how Thomas Dolby managed to write and record this song if, indeed, as he states in the title, She Blinded Me With Science. Surely if he had been blinded, as he states that he was, he would no longer be able to find the right keys on

      • Ain't Too Proud To Beg - The Temptations
        11/03/16
        Another remix for The Temptations. This time it's their 1966 single, Ain't Too Proud To Beg. The original cover is somewhat boring, where the word 'somewhat' should be replaced by the word 'totally', and the word 'boring' should be replaced by the word '

      • Don't Stop (Wiggle Wiggle) - The Outhere Brothers
        10/03/16
        The Outhere Brothers told us not to stop, but instead to gyrate in a somewhat relaxed yet floppy fashion in their song Don't Stop (Wiggle Wiggle). But the cover, other than showing a picture of a floppy face, gives no further instruction on how the wiggling should take place. The remix overcom

      • A Night To Remember - Shalamar
        09/03/16
        Get ready, tonight, we're gonna make this A Night To Remember. But what do Shalamar mean by that? The simple fact is that we don't know, as the cover of the single shows nothing more than the band members smiling. The remix shows why this will definitely be a noteworthy night, as a total

      • Look But Don't Touch - Skin
        08/03/16
        It's clear to see why Skin would suggest that you Look But Don't Touch the babe on the original cover of their single, as she will clearly punch you in the face if you do. It's, perhaps, less clear to see why the babe on the remix is someone you should avoid getting too close to, but

      • Juicy Fruit - Mtume
        07/03/16
        The original cover of Juicy Fruit by Mtume shows the band looking less than fruity, and certainly not particularly juicy. Thank goodness then for the remix in which we find a juicy looking babe bending over towards a bowl of fruit, which are most certainly fruity. Thinking about it, the babe is qu

        06/03/16
        We, here at AllBum.Art, pride ourselves on our ability to count. Malc, over in the 'sounds' department can count to over 30 and Chez in 'design' says he has to be able to count to nearly 400 to deal with the days in a year. But is seems that Winger cannot count to Seventeen, as

        We have previously remixed the cover artwork for a Kraftwerk track here at AllBum.Art.

He tells us:This babe who is named Vienna, is standing on a bridge over main motorway from Ma

        04/03/16
        Are You Ready To Fly? Do you have your passport ready? Is your bag packed? Do you have your tickets in your pocket? These are important additional questions that Rozalla fails completely to address in her song. In the remix we find a babe who is explaining some of the finer points of airplane c

      • Walkin' Back To Happiness - Helen Shapiro
        03/03/16
        Helen Shapiro is Walkin' Back To Happiness, and she is doing so by staring out across a yellow-tinged cityscape. Not much walkin' going on, and no real sign of happiness. On the remix we find three babes who are doing some walkin'. They may look a little sad, but remember they are w

      • The Boys Are Back In Town - Thin Lizzy
        02/03/16
        Just occasionally, we feel it is right, that we at AllBum.Art do a remix designed for the fairer sex, or as we call it One For The Ladies. This time it is the turn of Thin Lizzy and their hit The Boys Are Back In Town. On the original cover we find the 'boys' (a.k.a. the band) digging tha

        01/03/16
        Blowing a horn loudly in your ear is a sure-fire method of getting you to jump high in the air and Move Your Ass, which is what Scooter are asking us to do on the cover of their single. A picture of a horn is one thing, but what about a picture of the ass that has been moved, and its resting positi

        29/02/16
        It's a leap year and on February 29th it is traditional for the tables to be turned and for women to ask men to marry them so we thought this might be an appropriate day for one of our 'One For The Ladies' remixes. The original single cover artwork for Statuesque by Sleeper shows one

      • Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On - Jerry Lee Lewis
        28/02/16
        We know that a picture of Jerry Lee Lewis playing the piano is probably about all that those in charge of producing the original single front cover artwork for his song entitled Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On could imagine back in 1957. Te remix, however, presents the kind of picture that w

      • Up On The Roof - The Drifters
        27/02/16
        When The Drifters sang Up On The Roof, did you visualize the band members standing around with their arms open wide? Because whoever visualized the original single cover artwork did just that. We visualized something a bit different which, as you might guess, involves a babe up on the roof of a bu

      • Whole Lotta Woman - Marvin Rainwater
        26/02/16
        A rare remix in that it is of a song that was released before 1960. Marvin Rainwater sings about a Whole Lotta Woman, but on the original single cover artwork all we find is Mr Rainwater looking as if he is about to play tennis with a bunch of Apache Indians. On the remix we find a whole lotta woma

      • Little Devil - Neil Sedaka
        25/02/16
        A satanic triple-play from us good folk at AllBum.Art from none other than Neil Sedaka. On the original single cover artwork for Little Devil we find Mr Sedaka looking at something. He may be a little frightened, but with that sweater on, he might just be a bit hot. On the first remix we find a b

        24/02/16
        Let's all go and join Definition Of Sound at Moira Jane's Cafe. After all, if the original single cover artwork is to be believed, we would enjoy sitting around on some chairs which don't seem very comfortable, and drinking from a very small pot of tea. Or you could go to the remixe

      • Come Clean - Puddle Of Mudd
        23/02/16
        We really have absolutely no idea what Puddle Of Mudd were trying to depict on the original album cover artwork for Come Clean. A little boy peeing against a bush says nothing to us. On the remix, though, one thing is obvious - the babe is clean, having just gotten out of her bath. Why she wore p

      • Big Ones - Aerosmith
        22/02/16
        Ermm... Is it just us, or does the fact that Aerosmith have an album called Big Ones, mean that a remix is so inevitable, to not do it would be worse than letting your ice cream melt on a sunny day without even licking it? Let's put this plainly... On the original album cover artwork we find n

      • It's Too Late - Quartz Introducing Dina Carroll
        21/02/16
        We think the picture on the original single cover artwork for It's Too Late by Quartz Introducing Dina Carroll is quite inventive showing, as it does, Ms Carroll superimposed on the face of a clock. But we can't tell if it's too late as the hands of the clock do not indicate what time

      • Serious - Donna Allen
        20/02/16
        Does Donna Allen look Serious on the front cover artwork of her single? To be fair she does look very focused on something or other so maybe she should be taken seriously. On the remix we find a different babe who has a very serious look on her face. We are not sure why she is looking so earnest.

      • Spread A Little Happiness - Sting
        19/02/16
        An other remix for Sting. On the original single cover artwork for Spread A Little Happiness, we find a stylized drawing of Mr Sumner clasping his hands together in front of his face. On the remi-xxx (yes, another of our X-Rated remixes) we find a mature babe who has spread her happiness very wide

      • Thru The Glass - Thirteen Senses
        18/02/16
        What is missing from the original front cover artwork of Thru The Glass by Thirteen Senses is any clear indication of what is, in fact, thru the glass. The dirty grey rectangle on the cover may be meant to represent glass but it is actually clearer around the outside of it. On the remix we find th

      • Through The Rain - Mariah Carey
        17/02/16
        When Mariah Carey sings Through The Rain, you can almost sense the raindrops on your back. But when you look at the original single cover artwork you only see Ms Carey, her name, the title of the song and a butterfly. On the remix we find a pert babe who is definitely enjoying herself through the

        17/02/16
        Yet another remix for those Swedish songsters ABBA - in fact we have done so many remixes of their cover artwork that we could have dedicated a whole week to them. On the original front cover of When I Kissed The Teacher we find the band members sitting at a dining table enjoying a class of wine wi

        16/02/16
        Another triple-play from your good friends here at AllBum.Art. Today Shakira takes to the stage with her single Underneath Your Clothes. The biggest problem with the original single cover artwork is that although Ms Ripoll is wearing clothes, we can not see what is underneath them. On the first r

      • The Bitch - Olympic Runners
        15/02/16
        We can fully understand why the Olympic Runners chose to picture Joan Collins on the original front cover of their single The Bitch, it was because Ms Collins was the star of the movie of the same name for which this song was the theme tune. All very sensible. All we have done for the remix is mod

      • Hand Held In Black And White - Dollar
        14/02/16
        Another triple-play from us occasionally helpful folk at AllBum.Art. Today Dollar sing about Hand Held In Black And White. But alas, on the original front cover artwork of their single, both band members are wearing white. That is why we are here to provide you with remixes. On the first remix w

        13/02/16
        Today's remix is for the original cover artwork from the front of Randy Edelman's song Pretty Girls. We will give whoever designed the cover half a point for attempting to show some pretty girls on the original cover. But they are so artistically faded that it's not clear whether th

      • Make You Feel My Love - Adele
        12/02/16
        When Adele sings Make You Feel My Love, we would expect a little more from the original single cover artwork than a picture of the singer looking over her shoulder. What we would expect is someone who had gone to some length to make someone else feel their love, and that appears to be what is happe

      • I Touch Myself - Divinyls
        11/02/16
        The original single cover artwork for I Touch Myself by Divinyls leaves many questions unanswered. Chief among these is whether the babe wearing the fishnet body-suit on the front cover is actually touching anything, let alone herself, as her hands are not visible. On the remix we find a babe who i

      • Radio Africa - Latin Quarter
        10/02/16
        We're hearing only sad songs on Radio Africa, at least that is what Latin Quarter tell us. To be fair, we have never listened to Radio Africa as reception at the AllBum.Art offices is generally very poor. The original single cover artwork is also rather poor but the remix improves the recepti

      • Baby Twist - Bob Azzam E La Sua Orchestra
        09/02/16
        In the 1960s when Bob Azzam E La Sua Orchestra put together the original cover artwork for their single Baby Twist, it must have been quite daring to have had a bikini-clad babe dancing by the sea. All that we have done for the remix is to modernize the outfit being worn by the babe. She is still

      • Too Big - Suzi Quatro
        08/02/16
        It seems that Suzi Quatro appears quite frequently in our infrequent list of triple-X rated remixes. The original cover artwork for her single Too Big shows Ms Quatro singing. Maybe she is very tall - this is not clear. On the remix we find a babe in magenta high heel boots that are clearly too big

      • Living In Danger - Ace Of Base
        07/02/16
        We all live in danger to some extent, so when Ace Of Base sing about Living In Danger, you might expect a higher level of danger than the background peril that we all put up with. But on their cover there is no indication of any danger that they might be experiencing, other than the danger of borin

      • Peek-A-Boo - The New Vaudeville Band
        06/02/16
        Going back in time to the 1960s for this remix of Peek-A-Boo by The New Vaudeville Band. The original cover sees the band members sitting in, or standing next to, a car that has come even further back in time (though not using any kind of flux capacitor). Now Peek-A-Boo is a game often played with

      • Hurt So Good - Susan Cadogan
        05/02/16
        A triple-play remix for Susan Cadogan and her single (and album of the same name) Hurt So Good. On the original cover we find Ms Cadogan looking glum. Is she hurt? It's difficult to say. Was the hurt good? Well given that we don't really know if she is hurt, that is a question too far.

      • Analogue - A-Ha
        04/02/16
        This marks the last in our short, XXX-rated remix run of artwork around the topic of anal. Today it is the turn of A-Ha and their album Analogue. The original cover shows the band members looking very coy at the back of an odd painted backdrop. In the remix we find a babe who is taking a log in he

      • Assassin - The Orb
        03/02/16
        Our short series of remi-XXX-es continues with another anal themed remixes. Actually with a title such as Assassin, we could have used the same picture as yesterday's Marillion remix but instead we have this alternative take on pretty much the same topic by The Orb. The original cover shows s

      • Assassing - Marillion
        02/02/16
        When we began providing the occasional 'Remi-XXX' (otherwise known as X-rated remixes) it caused a split in opinion among the staff here at AllBum.Art. Some thought it was a step too far; others just live by the ethos of rules are meant to be broken. So when someone suggested that there

      • January February - Barbara Dickson
        01/02/16
        At exactly midnight at the end of the day on 31 January, is it January, or is it February? This is a question that it seems Barbara Dickson has puzzled about. So much so that she wrote a song about it, a song called January February. On the original cover we see Ms Dickson looking very confused,

    • January
      • 5 Colours In Her Hair - McFly
        31/01/16
        She has 5 Colours In Her Hair, at least she does if McFly are to be believed. But other than looking like a load of teenage jerks, the original cover material does not illustrate what this might look like. Is it auburn, blonde, brown, red and grey? Well, not it's not, as we can see in the re

      • That Don't Impress Me Much - Shania Twain
        30/01/16
        That Don't Impress Me Much, Shania Twain, not I am not impressed at all, never mind much. Why? Because the silly leopard-skin coat that you are wearing is in very bad taste and because hitching a ride wearing it is probably not a route for success. I am, however, impressed much more by the b

      • Bang Bang - Kelly Willis
        29/01/16
        You have to be very careful when playing with guns, or at least that's what we think Kelly Willis is trying to get across in her song Bang Bang. It might be better, though, to provide a graphic illustration of just why guns are so dangerous, and the remix of the cover artwork does just this.

      • Wings Of A Dove - Madness
        28/01/16
        We would give Madness only around 5 out of 10 for the cover artwork of their single Wings Of A Dove. Why only 5? Well, for one, the band do not appear (lose 2 points). Second, it's not a real dove (lose 1 point). And thirdly, there's nothing mad about it (lose 2 points). The remix scor

      • Don't Make Me Wait - 911
        27/01/16
        You can tell that 911 have been hanging around for quite a long time on the original cover of their song Don't Make Me Wait, by the fact that they look totally bored and have long faces. Maybe if they put their shoes on and stopped messing about with guitars they might seem less tired. On the

      • Leaning On A Lamppost - George Formby
        26/01/16
        As we have said many a time at AllBum.Art, sometimes a remix is inspired by the name of a song, and sometime by a particular picture that we stumble across. In this case it was the picture that spawned the remix. After all, what other song would a babe leaning naked on a lamppost be suited to than

      • Show Me - Dana Dawson
        25/01/16
        What is it that Dana Dawson is referring to when she tells us to Show Me? She is clearly wishing us to show her something or other, but it's not clear what. Nor is she showing us anything much. On the remix we find a babe who seems very happy to show us, in this case to show us that she is ha

      • Run For Home - Lindisfarne
        24/01/16
        Now why would Lindisfarne Run For Home? The answer is that they wouldn't, it's their fans who do the running after having put up with several hours of their dreary music. On the original cover we can see the fans being bombarded by their terrible songs at a concert. On the remixed cover

      • Your Woman - White Town
        23/01/16
        Could there possibly be a cover for a single more boring and pointless than that for Your Woman by White Town? What do we learn from the original cover? Nothing, other than that someone in the band (or maybe a friend of theirs) thought that putting the title of the song and the name of the band in

      • Don't Stop - Fleetwood Mac
        22/01/16
        Yawn. Why Yawn? The cover of Don't Stop by Fleetwood Mac. A man dressed in strides and a girl all ballerina like. Please stop them immediately as they're dull. Yes, don't... stop! Like in the remix where some guy seems to think it's a good idea to undress a babe who is a bi

      • The Banana Song - G.S.P.
        21/01/16
        When G.S.P. sing The Banana Song, there's plenty of banana mayhem to be had, as the song is a remix of the title of the theme tune of the late 60's children's program the Banana Splits. The fact that Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper and Snork appear on the original cover artwork is not, there

      • Ballerina Girl - Lionel Richie
        20/01/16
        Another remix for the ever popular Lionel Richie as his songs make great subjects for remixing. On the original cover artwork for Ballerina Girl, we find Mr Richie relaxing in a matching periwinkle t-shirt and mauve jacket. Now maybe he is watching a ballerina girl, but she isn't on the cover

      • Glitterball - Simple Minds
        19/01/16
        When Simple Minds sing about a Glitterball, you might expect that there would be some indication of the glitterball on the cover of their single. But no, instead we find the band walking in front of a number of car garages which makes no real sense at all. Thankfully, us here at AllBum.Art have pr

      • Fly Me High - Linda Jo Rizzo
        18/01/16
        The second remix provided to us by Giuseppe from Taranto, for artist Linda Jo Rizzo. This is a remix that can apply both to her 1989 single and her 2015 album which are, apparently, both called Fly Me High. The original cover once again features Ms Rizzo, this time replete with many pearl necklace

      • Heartflash (Tonight) - Linda Jo Rizzo
        17/01/16
        We know nothing about Linda Jo Rizzo, but that is not true of Giuseppe who writes to us from Taranto, Italy with a couple of remixes of Ms Rizzo's songs. The first is for Heartflash (Tonight) in which we find Ms Rizzo looking very 1980s. In the remix, we find a mature looking vixen who is at

      • (Must You Always) Tease Me - Keith Kelly
        16/01/16
        (Must You Always) Tease Me? That is the question posed by Keith Kelly. Now on the cover of Mr Kelly's single, we see a happy yet intrigued looking Mr Kelly and the question is, what or who is doing the teasing (always). The remix turns the camera around 180 degrees so that we can see what or

      • Everything Is Average Nowadays
        15/01/16
        The Kaiser Chiefs are keen to tell us that Everything Is Average Nowadays. Their impression of this, at least so far as the cover of their single goes, is a plastic shopping bag. The remix presents something far more average: an average looking woman, of average age, average height, and average si

      • Get Lucky - Jermaine Stewart
        14/01/16
        Another sexy remix for Jermaine Stewart. Having told us that you don't have to take your clothes off (to have a good time), he is now telling us to Get Lucky. The original cover might be lucky if you're a retailer of studded leather jackets. The remix on the other hand shows a guy who h

      • Honky Cat - Elton John
        13/01/16
        It seems that cats make a good topic for remixes, and this remix of Honky Cat by Elton John is no exception to the rule. It is particularly worthy of a remix as the original cover has no cat on it at all. The remix shows a cat, or at least a babe dressed as a cat who is, as far as it goes, honky.

      • Black Cat - Janet Jackson
        12/01/16
        Another single that in theory scores full marks, as on the cover of Black Cat by Janet Jackson we find Ms Jackson posing with a black feline. So no point remixing this one then? Probably. But, as you might have guessed by now, we like naked babes rather than clothed ones, and so on the remix we h

      • Street Dreams - Nas
        11/01/16
        We think Nas was onto a good idea when he put together the cover for his single Street Dreams, though it's a little back to front. On the cover we find someone waving a dollar bill out of the window of a car to entice a young man. On the remix we find a similar situation, though one that has

      • Happy Together - The Turtles
        10/01/16
        The Turtles are apparently Happy Together and although there are one or two smiling faces on the cover of their single, it is not at all clear that everyone in the picture is happy to be together. The remix shows two babes who seem very happy to be together. Perhaps it is the fact that they are bo

      • (Somebody) Help Me Out - Beggar And Co
        09/01/16
        Now, when we at AllBum.Art are faced with helping someone out, our warped minds immediately think of helping someone out of their clothes. The original cover of (Somebody) Help Me Out by Beggar And Co does not reflect our view of assistance, but the remix does as we find one babe helping another ou

      • Rock The Casbah - The Clash
        08/01/16
        The Casbah, as any geographer will tell you, is the old quarters of a north African or Middle Eastern country. So when The Clash sing Rock The Casbah and compliment this with a single cover that shows two middle eastern gentlemen rocking to the beat, we are all good and full marks are scored for th

      • Cool For Cats - Squeeze
        07/01/16
        It's Cool For Cats, or at least it is according to Squeeze. The original cover of their single may have the two letter 'o's in the word 'cool' in the shape of cats' eyes but why is this so cool? On the remix we find a cool cat, in the form of a babe wearing cats'

      • Off The Wall - Wisdome
        06/01/16
        Chocka-chocka-pfft dumby-dumby-pow. Or something like that, is how Off The Wall by Wisdome sounds to our unattuned ears. The cover of this 2000 single also provides nothing by which to understand why or what is off the wall. The remix, helps, by showing is that what is off the wall is a babe who i

      • (Feels Like) Heaven - Fiction Factory
        05/01/16
        It's difficult to get a feeling from the cover artwork of a single, but it is easy to see what is going on. The original cover of (Feels Like) Heaven by Fiction Factory tells us nothing more than the fact that heaven is a cloudy old place. The remix allows us to sense more of what heaven migh

      • I Should Have Known Better - Jim Diamond
        04/01/16
        What is is that Jim Diamond is trying to tell us on the cover of his single I Should Have Known Better? The dark broody blue coloring maybe suggest he should have thought about buying a better light bulb. Thankfully the remix helps us to answer this question as we find a babe who appears to be loc

      • Be Cool - Paffendorf
        03/01/16
        Now Paffendorf might think that by making the cover of their single Be Cool different shades of blue, that it somehow means that it reflects the notion of coolness. That may be how they see being cool. We see being cool as having a pretty babe in a snow covered forest who is using some of that sno

      • Shiver - George Benson
        02/01/16
        Brrr... it's a cold January day, one of those that makes you Shiver, or so says George Benson. On the cover of his single, though, he looks distinctly warm in his grey suit and blue shirt. On the remix we find someone who is much much colder, and is shivering away on a cold January morning on

      • Queen Of The New Year - Deacon Blue
        01/01/16
        What better way to begin 2016 than with a remix of a song about the New Year. And so we bring you Queen Of The New Year by Deacon Blue. On the original cover we find some kind of gold plated artistic rendering of something or other. On the remix we find a princess who is on her way to a New Year

        There are two things basically wrong with the original cover artwork for Footprints In The Snow by Johnny Duncan And The Blue Grass Boys. Firstly there is no sign of the Blue Grass Boys, only Mr Duncan is visible. Secondly, and most importantly, there is no snow and related to that, there are no f

        25/12/15
        For Christmas Day, what better than to remix an old seasonal classic as our gift to you. Here is Greg Lake with I Believe In Father Christmas. The original cover is festive in its own way, but leaves many questions unanswered, the main one being who is it that believes in old Santa Claus. The rem

        Christmas is almost upon us, and so we send you a Christmas Card. That being said, the card has been prepared by The Temptations and their version of the card had a drawing of them singing. Our card to you has remixed this and has a group of babes bursting out of your and their Christmas stockings

        Happy Holiday is just one of the many classic seasonal songs on the Christmas Collection by Andy Williams.

        It is sometimes easy to forget that there are many places around the world where Christmas is not presented with scenes of snow and ice, but instead of hot weather, bikinis and beaches. We speak, of course, of the southern hemisphere, where Christmas falls at the start of summer instead of the begi

      • Cold As Christmas (In The Middle Of The Year) - Elton John

        A minor holiday hit from British musical maestro Elton John, Cold As Christmas (In The Middle Of The Year) sees the aforementioned Mr Dwight playing his piano infront of a windy looking desert backdrop, the lid of his piano reflecting what looks like a swimming pool. Cold and christmassy it's

        20/12/15
        What exactly is a Hard Candy Christmas, as sung to us by Dolly Parton? If the original cover of this festive track tells us anything related to this question, it is that Ms Parton thinks that wearing a Santa outfit and standing in snow-filled scenery is meant to answer it. The remix shows what a r

        We, here at AllBum.Art kind of like the original cover of Tinsel And Lights by Tracey Thorn, largely because it has on it both lights, and tinsel. But that doesn't mean there isn't room for a remix, and in the remix we still find the tinsel that was present in the original artwork, there

        Winter is just around the corner so it seems appropriate to remix Shiver by Natalie Imbruglia. It seems, though, that Ms Imbruglia was a little lost for ideas on her original cover artwork as all that it depicts is herself, in black and white. The remix shows a woman for whom shiver is something t

        The Eagles were one of our featured week artists in 2015, so it seems appropriate to have another remix of their cover artwork in the holiday season. The original cover for Please Come Home For Christmas sees the band lazing around in the sun by a swimming pool. Though for some (for example fans o

        13/12/15
        A soft, fuzzy, warm feeling. That's what you get when you listen to Winterlove by Parachute. The original cover of their single adds to the fuzzy feeling for sure, as it shows a city scene through a steamed up window. On the remix we see softness and warmth as two babes give each other a hug

Well the answer is a simple one, as lead singer of the Pogues, Mr MacGowan is the voice behind that holiday hit Fairytale Of New York. And whilst w

        What do a white horse (with no tail), white rubber boots and a silver PVC jacket have in common? They are, apparently, what in the wonderful world of Tori Amos represent Winter, or at least that is what we are led to believe if we take the cover of her single at face value. For us, winter is far m

        It gets very chilly in December (or at least it does here at AllBum.Art HQ). And so we find ourselves remixing a double-dose of chilliness, with a band called Coldplay and a song called Shiver. The original cover shows some trees, with, for no real reason, various bits colored in. The remix shows

        Whilst we are on the subject of snow flakes, here is a remix of Snow Flake by seasonal swooner Jim Reeves. On the original cover artwork we find Mr Reeves looking anything but snowy, though perhaps if he hasn't used anti-dandruff shampoo he might be a bit flaky. The remix shows a babe dressed

        You always know you are onto a winner with the original artwork for a song comes with a sticker that says 'Rudolf Recommends'! And so it is with Suzy Snowflake by Rosemary Clooney. The original cover suggests that Ms Snowflake is perhaps a star-shaped snowflake with a woman's head.

        We can see why Lloyd would sing She's All I Want For Christmas judging by the cover artwork for his single. After all, the babe on the cover has a nice smile and a nice choice in clothing (or lack thereof). We occasionally get charged, here at AllBum.Art with the accusation that the material

        05/12/15
        It is a little known fact, but in the Netherlands, Christmas begins on December 5th, as Santa rides through the streets with his politically incorrect slave helper Black Pete, handing out sweets to the kids. The upshot of this is that the time is now right to start a few re-mix-mas-es and we begin

So many opportunities for pictures of snow scenes or similarly chilly vistas. Thank goodness then for AllBum.Art for correcting this anomaly and

        03/12/15
        Another remix for those British electro-pop duo, Eurythmics. On the cover of their single You Have Placed A Chill In My Heart, we find the band's lead singer looking very forlorn, but not that chilly, though the bleakness of the landscape in the background gives no clues as to the air temperat

      • She's So Cold - The Rolling Stones
        02/12/15
        A minor hit from the early 80s for the Rolling Stones and their song Ring Of Ice. On the original cover for the single, we find the red lipped logo of the band, spewing forth something that is then apparently freezing. But this tells us not, who 'she' is, and why she is 'cold'.

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 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

        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

    • October
      • Ghostbusters - Ray Parker Junior
        31/10/15
        We think this is a first for us at AllBum.Art, three separate remixes of the same cover artwork. The simple fact is that it is Halloween and we wanted to mark the occasion with something special. Also, we found so many great spooky pictures that it seemed a shame to waste them, or to wait for anoth

      • Keeper Of The Castle - Four Tops
        30/10/15
        How does that old kiddies rhyme go, "I'm the king of the castle, and you're the dirty rascal"? And to some extent the original and remixed versions of the cover art for Keeper Of The Castle by the Four Tops follow a similar logic. On the original we see the band members standin

      • This Ole House - Shakin' Stevens
        29/10/15
        This Ole House has no doubt seen better days as it appears to be crumblin' around the edges, though with the position of Shakin' Stevens within the abode, the state of the decor is not apparent. In the remix we take a wider angle lens to the property and it is now clear that the state of

      • Ride On A Meteorite - Antares
        28/10/15
        A Ride On A Meteorite is what Antares are offering us in this terrible 1990s electropop nonsense. Their cover, however, offers something vaguely more appealing. The remix goes one step further as we find a babe who is definitely riding on a meteorite. Interestingly, although the meteorite in ques

      • Locked Out Of Heaven - Bruno Mars
        27/10/15
        Another remix for the eponymous Bruno Mars whose singles and albums seem to make excellent fodder for remixing. The idea of being Locked Out Of Heaven conjures up pictures of being stuck with no way to access the beauty of what lies behind. In that respect the original cover is just about OK, but

      • Shake Ya Tailfeather - Nelly, P. Diddy & Murphy Lee
        26/10/15
        Wiggle it, just a little bit. That's what you should be saying to someone who you are requesting to Shake Ya Tailfeather. But the big headed rappers collective of Nelly, P. Diddy and Murphy Lee only wish to show us their big heads on the cover of their single. On the remix we see a single ba

      • Odd 1 Out - Guvna B
        25/10/15
        Odd 1 Out, yeah, right, like that's not an original title for an album. Well anyway, rant over, it seems that Guvna B did reasonably well with his album cover putting himself as the odd one out in-between two grey zeros. The remix adds a little color to this monochromatic scene but retains the

      • Coffee - Supersister
        24/10/15
        Pip pap pop, or at least that's the kind of pippy pappy poppy music that seems to represent the single Coffee by Supersister. We actually like the original cover of the single, mainly because the babes in the band seem quite hot. But where's their coffee? The remix has some equally hot

      • Fans - Kings Of Leon
        23/10/15
        Not the first remix of single by the Kings Of Leon here at AllBum.Art, but, in fact, the second. Today it's the turn of their song Fans, and on the original cover we can see what looks like seats in a theater, where no doubt their fans will assemble to watch the show. On the remix we see two

      • Drop The Pilot - Joan Armatrading
        22/10/15
        How quintessentially 1980s is the cover of Drop The Pilot by Joan Armatrading. In addition to Ms Armatrading wearing a red jump-suit, the hastily squiggled prime color graffiti adds that totally period effect. But for today, much needs changing and on the remix it has. Gone is that 80s kitsch, re

      • Você Me Apareceu - Kaliedoscópio
        21/10/15
        October. An odd time of year to be remixing sizzling summer hits. But then again, what could be better when the days are starting to shorten and the nights getting colder than to be thinking of hot babes on warm beaches? And hot babes on Brazilian beaches is what Kaliedoscópio bring in their sizzl

      • Big Gun - AC/DC
        20/10/15
        Staying on the whole gun-related theme, here's a remix of the single Big Gun by hard rockers AC/DC. On the original cover there is a big gun, which is largely what you might expect to be there. On the remix is an equally big gun, but this time being held aloft by a blonde babe. Holding such

      • Bang Bang Bullet - Streak
        19/10/15
        What a combination for remixing here at AllBum.Art... Bang Bang Bullet by Streak. We could have replaced the original art work with someone streaking. Or we could have replaced the art work with someone banging. But in the end it was the bullet idea that won us over and the remix sees a babe holdi

      • Kid Stuff - Nancy Sinatra
        18/10/15
        We complete our week-long Nancy Sinatra special with a remix of her 2008 album Kid Stuff. On the original cover we see Ms Sinatra messing about on a wooden bench, that we can only presume is the closest they could get to doing some stuff that kids do. But what about the remix? What does this very

      • Shot You Down - Audio Bullys Featuring Nancy Sinatra
        17/10/15
        The weekend beckons but we're still remixing covers of singles by Nancy Sinatra. Today it's an AllBum.Art first - a remix of a remix! Yes, we're remixing the remix of yesterday's song, Bang Bang, this time it's called Shot You Down and it's by the Audio Bullys Featuri

      • Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) - Nancy Sinatra
        16/10/15
        Friday already, how the week just flies by. And here we are with another remix from this week's special guest, Nancy Sinatra, none other than Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down). On the original cover of the song, we find Ms Sinatra sitting down on the floor. Could it be that she has already be

      • The Highway Song - Nancy Sinatra
        15/10/15
        Yet another remix in our week long Nancy Sinatra special. The original cover of The Highway Song shows Ms Sinatra looking very demure and even a little sophisticated, lying down in soft focus. But where is the highway? The remix shows what is going on on the highway in question, which is to say v

      • You Go Go Girl - Nancy Sinatra
        14/10/15
        Another day, another remix from this week's featured artist, Nancy Sinatra. This time it is for a more up-to-date album. Released in 1999, You Go Go Girl sees Ms Sinatra wearing much more clothing than on her usual covers, dressed, as she is, in a 60s style go go dancing outfit. The remix ha

      • Sugar - Nancy Sinatra
        13/10/15
        Another album cover by this week's featured artist, Nancy Sinatra. This time it is her 1966 album Sugar that gets the AllBum.Art make-over. On the original we see an already raunchy Ms Sinatra wearing a pink bikini that, for the 1960s, was no doubt regarded as skimpy. On the remix we see ano

      • How Does That Grab You - Nancy Sinatra
        12/10/15
        We begin another week-long special this week, this time with a week's worth of remixes of the covers of work by Nancy Sinatra. Nancy makes a very good subject for remixes as she has, herself, posed in what was once known as 'the altogether' but is these days known as 'in the nude

      • Shake Ya Ass - Mystikal
        11/10/15
        We are disappointed with Mystikal because on the original cover of his single Shake Ya Ass, the one thing that ought to have been shown, is not shown. And that thing, the thing that should have been shown is a babe with an ass that could do with shakin'. Thank AllBum.Art then for ensuring tha

      • Strip - Pink Grease
        10/10/15
        We often say, here at AllBum.Art that some songs write their own remixes. Strip by Pink Grease is just such a song as with a title of strip, the subject matter for the remixed cover artwork is beyond obvious. On the original cover we see the band members riding a bus, for no reason that is immedia

      • Sweetest Smile - Black
        09/10/15
        Another triple-play from us good folk at AllBum.Art. Finding a sexy picture of a babe smiling sweetly (and preferably wearing black) for the remix of Sweetest Smile by Black is not that easy but we managed it. On the original cover we find the singer looking anything other than smiley. On the fir

      • Get On The Bus - Destiny's Child Featuring Timbaland
        08/10/15
        What do you think of for a song whose title is Get On The Bus, especially when that song is by sassy, sexy quartet Destiny's Child (featuring Timbaland, but we can effectively ignore that bit)? Is it the members of the band posing in front of a white sun and grey sky? Or is it a hot babe, sit

      • The Boxer - Simon And Garfunkel
        07/10/15
        Such a simple remix this one. The original cover of The Boxer by Simon And Garfunkel shows the two singers, the title of the song, and the singers' names, and that's it. No sign of a boxer, which is odd, given that the title of the song is The Boxer. This is very easily remedied, and in

      • Help Me Mama - Lemonescent
        06/10/15
        No, we had never heard of Lemonescent either, but when we found a picture of a mama helping out her daughter with what looks like an internet type activity, both of them hardly what you would call clothed, then we knew we had to find a suitable cover artwork for a remix. The song Help Me Mama is th

      • Garage Girls - Lonyo
        05/10/15
        A short series of remixes based around pictures of girls in garages, or car-ports as they are oft monikered. On the original cover of Garage Girls by Lonyo, we find Mr Lonyo standing around in what might be a garage, or might not be. There isn't enough of the background to the picture to know

      • Up The Ladder To The Roof - The Supremes
        04/10/15
        What can we glean, from the cover of Up The Ladder To The Roof by The Supremes, other, perhaps, than the slightly quirky way they have stretched out the words in the title of the song to form a kind of set of steps, or stairs if you will, up which it might be possible to climb. On the remix we see

      • Runaway Train - Elton John And Eric Clapton
        03/10/15
        When two megastars such as Elton John and Eric Clapton come together to make a song, expectations for the cover of the single are rightly high. But whilst the original cover features Mr Clapton and Mr Dwight (for that is his real name), there is no evidence of any train. On the remix we see a babe

      • Behind Closed Doors - Peter Andre
        02/10/15
        What do you know, it's our old friend Peter Andre back for a second remix. On the original cover of his song Behind Closed Doors, we see Mr Andre looking doleful. But there are no doors. Shame on him. On the remix we see a babe in a building where there ought to be lots of doors, but they a

      • All I Have To Give - Backstreet Boys
        01/10/15
        We are not sure what the Backstreet Boys are singing about when they sing All I Have To Give. Why are we so uncertain? Well the cover of their single provides no information about their offering at all. Instead we see the boys standing around with their floppy haircuts on a sunny veranda. The remi

      • Malt And Barley Blues - Mc Guinness Flint
        30/09/15
        We know what you're thinking... Malt And Barley Blues, as sung about by Mc Guinness Flint, is no doubt a song about drinking heavy liquor fermented, as it is, from those two ingredients. The original cover artwork does nothing, though, to encourage this explanation. The remix does away with t

      • Nothing's Shocking - Jane's Addiction
        29/09/15
        According to Jane's Addiction, Nothing's Shocking. And to prove this, their album cover shows us two naked babes, sitting next to each other on what appears to be a rocking bench. To make the scene more shocking, their heads appear to be on fire. The remix shows a different kind of shoc

      • Cherry Oh Baby - UB40
        28/09/15
        The original cover for Cherry Oh Baby by UB40 has more to it than might at first meet the eye. Look closely at the pictographic representation of the babe sprawling on the bed and you might notice that she could be naked, with a cherry covering her decency. The remix shows a babe who has gotten up

      • Cover Model - Sabrina
        27/09/15
        Italian topless model Sabrina makes the perfect subject for remixing of covers, because there are so many sexy pictures of her to replace the original artwork with. On this single, Cover Model, we find Ms Salero looking very modelesque (if that it a word). But we could up the modelness (if that is

      • Calendar Girl - Neil Sedaka
        26/09/15
        What would you imagine, if we asked you to picture a calendar girl? Would it be the unsmiling face of Neil Sedaka, or would it be a 60s style pinup girl? Well Mr Sedaka clearly thinks his unsmiling face, with his jacked slung over his shoulder, is the right answer. We, on the other hand, would pr

      • Touch Me In The Morning - Diana Ross
        25/09/15
        Diana Ross is no stranger to fans of AllBum.Art as there have been several remixes of her artwork before. Touch Me In The Morning was an album from 1973 and on the cover we see Ms Ross looking very inviting in a kind of morning color scheme. On the remix we see two babes. One is touching the othe

      • Off The Wall - Michael Jackson
        24/09/15
        If we had saved up all of the remixes of covers of songs or albums by Michael Jackson that we here at AllBum.Art have produced, we'd have enough for a week-long special or thereabouts. Today it's the turn of his popular 1980s album Off The Wall. The original cover would score very highly

      • I Want To Be Your Property - Blue Mercedes
        23/09/15
        You wouldn't have necessarily believed it possible to have two remixes, on two consecutive days whose theme is Mercedes, but here we are. Today sees us remixing I Want To Be Your Property by Blue Mercedes. The original cover sees what we can only presume to be the band members lolling about o

      • Mercedes Benz - Janis Joplin
        22/09/15
        An odd topic for a song, maybe? Janis Joplin sings to us about her Mercedes Benz. But does the cover of her single show the aforementioned automobile? No. It does show Ms Joplin, of that we can be sure. But Lord, won't you show me a Mercedes Benz? Your wish is our command and on the remix

      • Street Angel - Stevie Nicks
        21/09/15
        Continuing the 'street' theme for a short while, here's a remix of Stevie Nicks' 1994 album Street Angel. On the original album cover we find Ms Nicks wrapped in a beige colored cloth. On the remix we see a babe dressed in what might be called an angel outfit, or then again mig

      • Street Songs - Rick James
        20/09/15
        If there's one thing we particularly enjoy remixing here at AllBum.Art, it's albums or singles with the word 'street' in their title. Why? Because it gives us the opportunity to use a picture from one of our favorite topics, naked babes walking down streets. Don't ask why

      • (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher - Jackie Wilson
        19/09/15
        Jackie Wilson tells us, in this classic 60s song, that Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher And Higher. All well and good there Mr Wilson, but just what aspect of the original cover of your single shows us how high this love is lifting you. Is it the sky in the background, or your hand pointing noncha

      • Catch - Kosheen
        18/09/15
        We like the idea used by the designer of the original cover of the single Catch by Kosheen, that being a wild animal who it could be imagined could be caught by some wild poacher with a big shot gun. The remix is far more subtle, but equally catchy. In the place of the wild animal awaiting to be c

      • Private Dancer - Tina Turner
        17/09/15
        Who could forget the song, Private Dancer, by Tina Turner. It includes the line, "I'm your private dancer, dancer for money, do what you want me to to". In today's parlance, this would inevitably refer to the ladies of the pole, the dancers of the mast, the groovers of the stic

      • Holiday - Madonna
        16/09/15
        The end of the summer is nearly upon us, but what better time to brighten the lengthening days with a holiday song by Madonna. And what holiday song is it? Why none other than Holiday! The original cover shows a couple heading off on their vacation by train, the Golden Arrow steam train no less.

      • Lucretia My Reflection - Sisters Of Mercy
        15/09/15
        Goth time, here at AllBum.Art. And a goth classic from the Sisters Of Mercy, in the form of their dark, melancholy single Lucretia My Reflection. But lo!, where is this Lucretia you mention, and what is special about her reflection? On the original cover, none of these questions are answered as w

        14/09/15
        We seem to be having a bit of a run on disco hits this week. The Runner by The Three Degrees ably trots into this category. On the original cover we see the band members wearing the 1970s equivalent of a jump suit, perfect for running. Unless the weather is really hot, in which case what is bette

      • It Seems To Hang On - Ashford & Simpson
        13/09/15
        Continuing the disco theme, we find the cover and the remix for this somewhat obscure 1970s track from Ashford & Simpson. The original cover of It Seems To Hang On shows what we can only presume to be the band members and unless one of them is in some way hanging from the ceiling, there is not

      • I Can Make You Feel Good - Shalamar
        12/09/15
        It is always worth asking the question of any song, what is it that you can do for me? In this case, Shalamar tell us that I Can Make You Feel Good. And whilst their upbeat 1980s disco sound will certainly make anyone feel groovy, it is not altogether clear what it is they could do that would make

      • Fancy Pants - Kenny
        11/09/15
        This entry comes to us via the auspices of Ken Crescendo of Barnsley, England. Ken tells us that in England, the word 'pants' has a different meaning to in the USA, being the undergarment rather that the overgarment. We get what you're saying Ken, and thanks for this remix of Fancy P

      • Light My Fire - Amii Stewart
        10/09/15
        A disco classic, Amii Stewart is asking us to Light My Fire. And we give a big thumbs up to the original cover which shows Ms Stewart smouldering against a smokey backdrop. We can imagine her catching fire quite easily. The remix, then, is a bit of a let down as Ms Stewart has been replaced by a b

      • When You Walk In The Room - Status Quo
        09/09/15
        It seems that songs by Status Quo are hand made for remixing. The original cover of When You Walk In The Room shows a babe standing outside a room where the band are playing with their instruments. The babe is wearing heels. The remix does nothing other than change the perspective so that instead

      • When The Fingers Point - The Christians
        08/09/15
        When The Fingers Point by The Christians. Let's take a moment to consider how well the original cover of this single scores. Does it contain a picture of the band? Yes. Are they pointing? No. With their fingers? No. So overall, not that well then. Thank goodness that there is a remix to h

      • Marlene On The Wall - Suzanne Vega
        07/09/15
        Suzanne Vega sings of Marlene On The Wall. Sings is what she does, but the cover of her single adds no additional color to the scene she is describing. Where is Marlene and what is this wall that she is on? Thankfully the remix assists with answering some of these questions. Marlene appears to b

      • Sunshine, Lollipops And Rainbows - Lesley Gore
        06/09/15
        Sunshine, Lollipops And Rainbows are things that remind you of what? For us it is time for a remix of this classic song by Lesley Gore. The original cover shows Ms Gore smiling but there are no rainbows, and no lollipops and though the sun may be shining, it is not totally evident. The remix repl

      • Drop Dead Gorgeous - Republica
        05/09/15
        The term Drop Dead Gorgeous, as sung for us here by Republica could mean many things. It could mean that a girl is so good looking that one look at her beauty would make you drop dead, such as the supposed beauty of Helen of Troy. Alternatively it could be a babe who is gorgeous, but has dropped d

      • Video Killed The Radio Star - Buggles
        04/09/15
        Video Killed The Radio Star. Kind of ironic really when you think how the likes of MTV have helped keep pop music alive. But back in 1979, Buggles thought that the days of the disc jockey were doomed. So time then, for the remix, and what would you know it, radio has got its own back and seems to

      • Change - Tears For Fears
        03/09/15
        Another remix for British 80s popsters Tears For Fears. And this time it's their single Change. On the original cover we see the two band members in an odd set of positions: one is sitting on the floor, the other is hanging from the ceiling. Both seem intently focused on something. The remix

      • Every Rose Has Its Thorn - Poison
        02/09/15
        What, specifically, are Poison trying to tell us when they sing Every Rose Has Its Thorn? Is it that for every sweet smelling flower in the world, there is a painful spike waiting to rip open naked flesh? Perhaps, but then again it is just a song. And in that vain, we have remixed the cover to sh

      • Life On Mars - David Bowie
        01/09/15
        Is there Life On Mars? That's the question that David Bowie asks us in this 1970s song. Whilst Mr Bowie's wacky outfit might lead us to believe that it is, in fact, him who is the alien, that does not qualify as proof of existence. Nor, should it be said, does the naked babe sprawled ac

    • August
      • Heaven And Hell - Vangelis
        31/08/15
        It is probably understandable that back in the 1970s when synth-pop pioneers like Vangelis were perfecting their art, that they spent less time on the covers of their albums and singles than the music contained therein. But as time as moved on, help is at hand and in the remix of Heaven And Hell we

      • Reflections - Diana Ross And The Supremes
        30/08/15
        Reflections of, the way life used to be. That's what Diana Ross And The Supremes sing of in this 1960s Motown classic. The original cover shows Mr Ross and the Supremes but there's no mirror image, no upturned picture, no flipped-over photograph. The remix sadly does away with the origi

      • Born Naked - Ru Paul
        29/08/15
        Born Naked. Of course that's true of anyone, even Ru Paul. But we don't think that Mr Paul (or is it Mrs Paul, we never know) was specifically meaning that. Or at least even if (s)he was, there's scope for a sexy remix. And on the sexy remix are two babes. One has already been bo

      • Starships Over Alice - Arctic Moon
        28/08/15
        Let us not, in any way, focus on how crapulent the original cover of Starships Over Alice by Arctic Moon is, but instead focus on how the cromulent the remix has become. And why is the remix so improved? The simple addition of Alice, at least that is what we believe her name to be, who is fighting

      • Wind Of Change - Scorpions
        27/08/15
        For such an obscure band, the Scorpions fare well here at AllBum.Art for remixes. This time it is one of their biggest and best known songs that gets the remix treatment, Wind Of Change. On the original cover the wind of change is blowing nowhere in particular as the band stand around looking moro

      • Queen Of Rain - Roxette
        26/08/15
        Though our short run of automotive related remixes is now over, we have at least managed to connect today's remix to yesterday's through the medium of having the same band, in this case Nordic nightingales Roxette. Today it is their single Queen Of Rain that has hit the AllBum.Art remixin

      • Sleeping In My Car - Roxette
        25/08/15
        Continuing this temporary car fixation that we're having, here is a remix of Sleeping In My Car by Swedish songstrels Roxette. On the original cover we find the band members - um - that's it. Just the band members. On the remix we see a babe who may or may not be asleep, and though she

      • Cars - Gary Numan
        24/08/15
        What better song to continue our theme of cars than a song called Cars, by Gary Numan. But poor Mr Numan as it appears that, on the original cover, the car that he is meant to have been driving has been stolen, leaving him looking very silly holding an invisible steering wheel. The remix has lots a

      • In Your Car - The Cool Notes
        23/08/15
        A bit of a run on songs about, connected with, or mentioning cars is afoot here at AllBum.Art. Today it is the turn of The Cool Notes and their song In Your Car. Though we would give the band a few points for putting a picture of themselves on the cover, where is the car and who is in it? The rem

      • Fast Car - Tracy Chapman
        22/08/15
        Ah yes, what a great combination, a Fast Car and a pretty woman. However, and with all due respect to Tracy Chapman, there are prettier women that could be pictures alongside a fast car. And furthermore, the original cover of Ms Chapman's song does not feature a car which is a big omission in

      • Naked - Scarlet
        21/08/15
        Sometimes we stumble across an album or single whose remix needs no thought at all. Naked by Scarlet is one of those pieces of artwork. The original cover shows the two members of the band but are they scarlet? No. Are they naked? No. The remix solves both these problems as we find a scarlet-ha

      • Shocked - Kylie Minogue
        20/08/15
        We have, in general, steered away from using 'celebrity fakes' to provide remixes for album or single artwork here at AllBum.Art but for some reason, we couldn't resist this one. Kylie Minogue is Shocked, according to the cover of her single, but she looks less shocked and more elect

      • Nothin' My Love Can't Fix - Joey Lawrence
        19/08/15
        A reasonable effort by Joey Lawrence on the cover of his single Nothin' My Love Can't Fix. Reasonable in the sense that Mr Lawrence is wearing an outfit that you might expect some kind of up themselves car mechanic to wear, though being clearly so vain about his appearance, it might be ex

      • She Drive's Me Crazy - Fine Young Cannibals
        18/08/15
        According to the Fine Young Cannibals, otherwise penned as FYC apparently, She Drives Me Crazy. What would drive anyone crazy is the cover of a single that shows neither the band, nor who she is, nor what she is driving of why her style of driving would make anyone crazy. The remixed cover of the

      • Key To My Life - Boyzone
        17/08/15
        What is the Key To My Life? It is Boyzone? Sadly it is not. The key to my life is probably the 'enter' key on my keyboard. So on to the remix then, and on the original cover we see the boyz of the band looking all moody and 1990s. On the remix we see a babe with her enter key poised o

      • Silver Dream Machine - David Essex
        16/08/15
        In many ways, this remix of Silver Dream Machine by David Essex needs virtually no explanation at all. The original shows Mr Essex sitting astride his own version of a silver dream machine, a.k.a. a motorbike. The remix shows a similar silver motorbike but instead of Mr Essex sitting astride it, i

      • Hot For Teacher - Van Halen
        15/08/15
        Hot For Teacher is what Van Halen was in this 1984 single and from the original cover it is fairly clear to see why. Teacher, in her short dress, high heels and pantyhose is clearly pretty hot. So in essence, there is little for the team here at AllBum.Art to do. Yawn. But there's always ro

      • Jeans On - David Dundas
        14/08/15
        When I wake up, in the morning light, I pull on my jeans and I feel all right... chh chh. That is how David Dundas opens this song called Jeans On, chh chh. The original cover shows Lord Dundas (for that is his official title) but it is not clear whether he is wearing jeans or not as all we can see

      • Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now - Starship
        13/08/15
        The first drum beats at the start of Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now by Starship signal the beginning of something incredibly familiar. The cover is just as familiar to the millions who bought the single in the 1980s. The remix keeps a lot of this familiarity but also adds an answer to the questio

      • Music For Hangovers - Various Artists
        12/08/15
        Any record on the 'High In-Fidelity' record label must be a good start and Music For Hangovers by Various Artists is no exception. We like the original cover which shows four babes sitting at a bar, drinking. Hair of the dog, no doubt. The remix then probably doesn't add a lot other

      • Strip Along With Us - Various Artists
        11/08/15
        The first of two days where we have remixed albums with great titles, and, to be fair, covers which are not bad either. The first by 'Various Artists...!' is Strip Along With Us. We rate the original cover quite highly as it has a good looking babe who we would love to strip along with,

      • Long Haired Lover From Liverpool - Little Jimmy Osmond
        10/08/15
        Another triple-play from us here at AllBum.Art. Little Jimmy Osmond sings to us about his Long Haired Lover From Liverpool but, sadly, does not show us what she looks like. We have no idea either, but we have provided you with two options. Option 1 is a long haired babe who is clearly in the mood

      • Tied To The 90's - Travis
        09/08/15
        Not the first remix for Scottish songsters Travis. This time it is the turn of their song Tied To The 90's. According to the band, the 90's consists of a 1980's ghetto-blaster painted in garish colors. Why would we want to be tied to that? Instead, on the remixed cover artwork, we

      • Tie Your Mother Down - Queen
        08/08/15
        Another remix for rock legends Queen. Tie Your Mother Down was one of their more obscure 1970s hits and the original cover may have something to do with this. Though it displays the band's fancy logo, and shows a picture of the band, where is mother and who, what or where is she being tied do

      • Get Lifted - John Legend
        07/08/15
        Get Lifted! That is what John Legend is telling us to do on the cover artwork of his album. But is he? There is no indication that his mouth is moving to give us this instruction. Nor is there any particular sign of what it is that is to be lifted. All very mysterious. Or at least it is until y

      • Stairway Of Love - Michael Holliday
        06/08/15
        A Stairway Of Love, that is what Michael Holliday sings about in this 1950s crooner style song. And who could not forgive Mr Holliday for putting his croony face on the cover of his single? But surely something better can be done? Of course it can. That is why we here at AllBum.Art exist, to serv

      • Big In Japan - Alphaville
        05/08/15
        Alphaville tell us that they are Big In Japan. They may indeed have been the case in the 1980s. We don't know if it's true and can't even be bothered to look it up to find out. What we do know is that volleyball is big in Japan. Also that young naked women are also quite a big dea

      • Pull Up To The Bumper - Grace Jones
        04/08/15
        Ah yes. Grace Jones. No mystery to odd pictures and weird remixes. The original cover shows Ms Jones in a typical pose. Boxing wear including a t-shirt that is too small (or maybe not, depending on your point of view). But no sign of any transport that might require a bumper to be pulled up to.

      • Food For Thought - UB40
        03/08/15
        The original cover of Food For Thought by British reggae band UB40 is extremely poor indeed (as those British say). But this was the band's first single so perhaps they were poor at the time and therefore unable to afford a proper cover. We, at AllBum.Art have therefore done them the honor of

      • Four Little Heels - Brian Hyland
        02/08/15
        A user submitted entry by Colin Hesketh of England. We will let Colin tell you the story.The original of Four Little Heels by Brian Hyland doesn't have any heels on it at all. My remix has two women, both wearing heels, which maked 4 heels in total.
        Quite right Colin. We note that they

      • You Lift Me Up - Rebekah Ryan
        01/08/15
        Rebekah Ryan sings You Lift Me Up. But the odd thing is that on the cover of her single, there is no evidence of any lifting going on. That being said, her feet are off the bottom of the picture and it is therefore quite possible that there is someone or something doing some lifting that is out of

    • July
      • Lifting Me Higher - Gems For Jem
        31/07/15
        One of those single covers where no effort whatsoever has been paid. Does it instruct us who Jem is? No. Does it show us the gems that are for Jem? No. Does it show us what is being lifted? No. Does it explain why it is being lifted higher and not lower? No. The remix answers many, though not

      • Ladyflash - The Go Team
        30/07/15
        We would call the original cover of Ladyflash by The Go Team a complete failure. It does not show the band members at all, it doesn't have a lady on the cover, and there is no flash. The remix solves at least two of these problems, as we see what is definitely a lady, and in a pose where she

      • Flash - B.B.E.
        29/07/15
        Not a bad effort from B.B.E. on the cover of their single Flash as they have used the idea of a lightning strike to illustrate a flash. Presumably the flash of light that it produces, or maybe the fact that it would zap anything it touches in a flash. Our remix therefore doesn't add that much

      • Joe Le Taxi - Vanessa Paradis
        28/07/15
        We might be wrong, but we think that this is the first remix here at AllBum.Art of the cover of a single that is not in English. Joe Le Taxi is by French singer and model Vanessa Paradis. Apparently it means 'Joe the cab driver' which is presumably why, on the original cover, Ms Paradis

      • Flashback - Imagination
        27/07/15
        Use your Imagination and what would you come up with to remix the cover artwork of a song called Flashback? We used our imagination and came up with the idea of a babe, flashing her back at us. Such a simple idea, but the trick is to carry if off with finesse, and so we were particularly pleased w

      • Hotel California - Eagles
        26/07/15
        A week of remixes of superband Eagles would not be complete without a remix of their all time classic, Hotel California. Let's ignore the original cover which has an eagle, but little else to distinguish it, and instead focus on the remix. What would a hotel in California look like? Well, fo

      • Desperado - Eagles
        25/07/15
        OK. We give the Eagles almost full marks for the original cover of their album Desperado. Why? Well firstly it contains a picture of the band. And secondly, the band are dressed and are posing like a set of wild-west desperados. So the cover artwork reflects the band and the title, giving it an

      • Life In The Fast Lane - Eagles
        24/07/15
        Life In The Fast Lane... hot babes, fast cars, dangerous driving? No. Apparently not. According to this week's featured band Eagles, it's about sitting around looking somewhat bored with life. How dreary. The remix however, has hot babes and fast cars. How's about the dangerous

      • Take It To The Limit- Eagles
        23/07/15
        The fourth in this week's remixes of Eagles remixes. And would you know it, the band have almost completely and utterly replicated the cover of Lyin' Eyes to a tee, with a picture of the band, and the same font and layout, albeit in a different color scheme. And so we have replicated the

      • The Long Run - Eagles
        22/07/15
        How totally uninventive of the Eagles for the cover of their album The Long Run. It features what... nothing, that is what. Not the band. No-one running. Nothing long. Thank goodness for the remixed cover which shows some babes running. How do we know it is a long run and not a short one? Eas

      • Lyin' Eyes - Eagles
        21/07/15
        The second in our week-long set of remixes of cover artwork by the Eagles. Today it is that classic song Lyin' Eyes. Now it's OK that a band put a picture of themselves on the cover of their singles, indeed that is commended. But it would help if they did something also related to the so

      • Hell Freezes Over - Eagles
        20/07/15
        A new week, and the start of a week-long series of remixes of cover artwork by classic rock legends, Eagles. For no particular reason, we begin with their 1994 album, Hell Freezes Over. The original cover shows a few flames flickering around the title of the album. Hardly hellish. The remix shows

      • Take Me To Church - Hozier
        19/07/15
        It is Sunday. Amen. So where should we go? Well according to Hozier we should Take Me To Church. What is the attraction with church (other than, of course, eternal salvation from our naughty sins)? It seems to be a weird parrot-human-newspaper-pipework hybrid. No, that won't do. The remix

      • Black Stockings - John Barry
        18/07/15
        It is clear, or at least translucent, why John Barry is smiling so brightly on the original cover of his hit Black Stockings. And why is that? It's because his head is in a position where he is underneath the petticoat of a lady and whose stockings he can clearly see. But times, they are a-c

      • Outstanding - The Gap Band
        17/07/15
        When the Gap Band sing that a babe is Outstanding, and that 'girl you knock me out', there is only one thought that goes through the mind of the team here at AllBum.Art. What is that thought? Well see for yourself. What kind of babe is outstanding enough that she could knock you out? W

      • Naked And Warm - Bill Withers
        16/07/15
        It's always a lovely day when the time comes to provide a remix of some cover artwork by Bill Withers, and today is no exception. The original cover of Mr Withers' album Naked And Warm shows Mr Withers looking warm (or at least the sun hat would suggests he is somewhere warm) but is he na

      • New Flame - Chris Brown Featuring Usher & Rick Ross
        15/07/15
        Another blazing hot remix, this time for New Flame by Chris Brown who is incapable of making a song in his own right and therefore needs to feature Usher and Rick Ross. We like the original cover of the single, with the seemingly naked babe silhouetted in fire and as such, our remix really doesn�

      • Fire - Julie Bergan
        14/07/15
        Yes, there's a definite theme in the air here at AllBum.Art. A theme that sets remixes ablaze, a theme of fire and flame. Today is is the turn of Julie Bergan and her single Fire for the treatment. The original cover shows a smiling Ms Bergan but where is the flame, where is the fire? The r

      • Chariots Of Fire - Vangelis
        13/07/15
        What do you think of, when confronted with the phrase Chariots Of Fire. Well, according to Vangelis it is nothing more than a Roman torch of flame. But here at AllBum.Art our minds don't work that way. When we think of chariots of fire, we think of blazing hot maidens, harnessed in leather,

      • Music - John Miles
        12/07/15
        Music was my first love, or at least that is what John Miles tells us in the 1970s classic anthem. But what is it that Mr Miles is holding on the cover of the original single? Is it a musical instrument or a shotgun? It is not clear at all. The remix takes us back to our first love, music, playe

      • I Am Not A Robot - Marina & The Diamonds
        11/07/15
        Marina & The Diamonds sing a song to tell us that I Am Not A Robot. But how can we tell? The original cover supplies us with no evidence as to whether the cover girl is a robot or not. On the remix we have asked her to take some clothes of so that we can see if she is a robot or not, and what

      • Girl On Fire - Alicia Keys
        10/07/15
        We're having a bit of a run on songs about flames and fire and to add to that collection, here comes a remix of Girl On Fire by Alicia Keys. On the original cover artwork we see Ms Cook (her real name) who is arguably pretty hot, but on fire? The remix solves this as we ass a girl, who is lit

      • Eternal Flame - The Bangles
        09/07/15
        Another remix for the all girl band, The Bangles. Today it is the turn of their single Eternal Flame to get the remix treatment. The original cover is very nice, and all, having a picture of the babes in the band on it, but where's the flame, and why is it eternal? None of these questions ar

      • A New Flame - Simply Red
        08/07/15
        Not the first remix for Simply Red (and not the last either). This is a remix of the cover artwork for their single A New Flame. On the original cover we see the band's lead singer Mr Hucknall, whose flame red hair may be the inspiration for the artwork. On the remix we see a babe who is fla

      • Mama's Pearl - The Jackson 5
        08/07/15
        Some bands make so little effort with the covers of their songs and the original cover of Mama's Pearl by The Jackson 5 is one of these. Why the band had so little imagination other than to use a plain red cover is anyone's guess. Well it was, until we carefully removed the red covering

      • Wonderwall - Oasis
        07/07/15
        Another remix for British band Oasis, this time for their 1995 single Wonderwall. The original cover shows a girl standing in a park whilst someone holds up the frame of a picture in front of her. One can only wonder what this has to do with a wall. The remix shows a similar picture, but instead

      • Parklife - Blur
        06/07/15
        Yesterday we took a walk in the park, today we are studying the Parklife, as defined by Blur. It seems that the band's view of the kind of life that is found in a park is greyhound racing. We are not sure what constitutes a park in Britain where the band are from, but surely even in England p

      • A Walk In The Park - Nick Straker Band
        05/07/15
        Another song that has a title so demanding of a remix that it would be a travesty not to do so: A Walk In The Park by the Nick Straker Band. Why does this so demand a remix? Well the title, for one. Why not show a babe going for a walk in a part, now that would be sensible. And 'straker

      • Miss America - Big Dish
        04/07/15
        Ahoy there, it's July 4 so time for a homeland themed remix. Here is Miss America by Big Dish. On the original single front cover there is a Miss, who may or may not be American, it's difficult to tell. On the remix is a babe who also may or may not be American, but either way she is cel

      • Dancing On The Beach - Sandman
        03/07/15
        As the summer heats up, we begin adding to the AllBum.Art collection of summer sizzlers. Today is is the turn of Sandman and his 1997 single Dancing On The Beach. If there has every been a more obvious need for a remix it is this poor effort. All that was needed to add some sizzle was to replace

      • Throwing It All Away - Genesis
        02/07/15
        Perhaps a truism by Genesis on the cover of their single Throwing It All Away. And what might that be? The fact that they have thrown away the chance to have a sexy cover for their song, and instead insisted on appearing on the single themselves. Megalomaniacs. We have solved their megalomania f

      • Hold My Body Tight - East 17
        01/07/15
        What were the boys of boy band East 17 thinking when they prepared the cover for their single Hold My Body Tight. Presumably they were thinking that if they put pictures of their own half-clad bodies on the artwork their fans would want to hold their bodies tightly. They were probably right, back

      • Angel - Simply Red
        30/06/15
        A regular sight on the AllBum.Art site, Simply Red grace the screen once again with their single Angel. Yes, we know that we have some kind of angel fixation and that we're always finding excuses to show pictures of sexy angelic babes but can you really blame us, when the original cover of the

      • Linger - Cranberries
        29/06/15
        It's not often that we do something like this here at AllBum.Art, but for the remix of the cover artwork of Linger by the Cranberries, we have tinkered with the title of the song. On the original cover of the single we see a young girl sat playing a church organ. On the remix it could be the s

      • Automatic Lover - Dee D Jackson
        28/06/15
        This is a particularly nice remix and it was sent to us by someone who identified themselves only as 'the Quiller'. The original cover of Automatic Lover by Dee D Jackson sees Ms Jackson attempting to look like some kind of futuristic space age babe by wearing a shiny aqua colored lycra b

      • Bend And Break - Keane
        27/06/15
        Another remix for melancholy musicians Keane, this time for their 2005 single Bend And Break. On the original cover we see what exactly? Exactly! It's not really very clear what is being depicted. On the remix, it is clear what is being shown. It's a babe who is bent so far she might

      • What You're Proposing - Status Quo
        26/06/15
        Some time ago we had a whole week of remixes of the covers of songs by Status Quo but obviously we missed out What You're Proposing. So here is a remix for it. The original artwork contains an image that makes little to no sense whatsoever. It's someone diving into the ocean alongside a

      • Mirror Man - The Human League
        25/06/15
        It's not often that we get to use the same joke twice when remixing the cover art of singles and albums but the remix of Mirror Man by The Human League contains the same pun as a similarly named song by a certain Mr Jackson. What pun is that, you ask? Well that concerning the deceptiveness of

      • Five Get Over Excited - The Housemartins
        24/06/15
        Another remix provided by AllBum.Art regular Wilf Hooton of Hull, UK. Wilf has provided us with a remix of Five Get Over Excited by The Housemartins. Wilf tells us:There wasn't even five bods on the original!
        But the remix does have five 'bods' and they seem to have gotten so e

      • Teenage Kicks - The Undertones
        23/06/15
        It seems quite likely that when preparing the artwork for their single Teenage Kicks, that The Undertones had run out of money. Has there ever been a less inspiring piece of cover art? At least it contains the name of the band and the title of the song. But where is a picture of the band, or of s

      • Sunrise - Simply Red
        22/06/15
        Summer is finally here so it's surely time for lots of sunny remixes and some more artwork to add to our summer sizzlers category. This one doesn't quite make it into the sizzling section but instead we find Simply Red singing about Sunrise. And on the cover we find the lead singer of th

      • Head Over Heels - ABBA
        21/06/15
        This is not the first time that the AllBum.Art team have remixed a song called Head Over Heels, after all it makes a good topic for a remix. It is also not the first time we have remixed the cover art for a track by Swedish songsters Abba. On the original cover, the band members are distinctly nor

      • Street Player - Chicago
        20/06/15
        Chicago can get very cold in the winter. Why do we say that? Well because it kind of explains the remix of Street Player by Chicago. The original cover sees the band smiling and looking very chic in a 1970s kind of way. The remixed cover shows a babe who is clearly very adept at playing the stre

      • On The Wings Of Love - Jeffrey Osborne
        19/06/15
        When Jeffrey Osborne sings On The Wings Of Love, what springs to your mind? It might well be Mr Osborne in soft focus wearing a brown sweater and gold neck chain. It might be. For us, we think of an angel. And not in a sweater and neck chain, but in white lingerie and high heels. And wouldn

      • Self - Fuzzbox
        18/06/15
        You know we are fans of the occasional angel, here at AllBum.Art. So when Brian Charlesworth from Birmingham, UK, send us this remix of Self by Fuzzbox, we were only too pleased to receive it. The original cover appears to show the lead singer of the band in an angel costume. The remix shows a si

      • Conga - Miami Sound Machine
        17/06/15
        Those crazy Latin beats want to make you shake your feet and do the Conga. But what is the Conga? Well the Latin influences are clear on the original cover artwork from the Miami Sound Machine, but there's no guide on how to participate in this crazy Latin dance. The remix shows a group part

      • Forever Autumn - Vigrass And Osborne
        16/06/15
        Hmmm... So I've heard the title of the song, Forever Autumn, somewhere, but I don't remember Vigrass and Osborne. Yeah, that's what we thought too. Forever Autumn is a song from the musical War Of The Worlds, which is more closely associated with Justin Heyward. But no, the origina

      • C'Mon And Get My Love - D-Mob Introducing Cathy Dennis
        15/06/15
        Maybe you've sensed a slight theme over the past couple of days? Songs that shout come and get it! Today it is C'Mon And Get My Love by D-Mob Introducing Cathy Dennis that is getting the treatment. On the original cover we find Ms Dennis doing her best to entice us to go and get her lov

      • Come And Get My Love - Reea
        14/06/15
        With a song with a title of Come And Get My Love, what we, at AllBum.Art would expect to find on the cover is an alluring babe, enticing us to go get it. What we have on the original cover artwork is a picture of Reea, looking sultry. On the whole, this does the required job, but we felt a little

      • Come And Get It - Selina Gomez
        13/06/15
        Another triple-play for you from AllBum.Art. On the original cover of Come And Get It by Selena Gomez, we see Ms Gomez trying to encourage us to come and get what exactly? Her dental plan? No, that won't do. On the first remix we see a housewife who is making it patently clear what it is th

      • My Favorite Mistake - Sheryl Crow
        12/06/15
        It is such a shame. If only Sheryl Crow had put a little more thought into the original cover of her single My Favorite Mistake, she might have scored top marks on the AllBum.It scoring scheme. But she didn't, and instead of trying to illustrate what her favorite mistake was, she just vainly

      • See Through - Pentatonix
        11/06/15
        You can probably see where we are going here without even getting as far as looking at the pictures. With a song named See Through, there is only one direction that a remix of the cover of this Pentatonix single can go. So let's just go there and get it done with. The original cover sees noth

      • No Limit - 2 Unlimited
        10/06/15
        A triple-play remix for 2 Unlimited and their song No Limit. The original cover shows not much except a space ship. No space cadets though. The first remix shows a space cadet babe for whom contortion is clearly not a limit as she is bent into the most unlimited position. The second shows a babe

      • Spring Rain - Silvetti
        09/06/15
        Spring Rain (or Lluvia De Primavera as it was originally known) was a 1977 hit for Bebu Silvetti (or Silvetti for short). We tell you this as this is one of those tracks that is so obscure that you might think we had made it up otherwise just so that we could remix it. The original cover shows a b

      • Walking On The Moon - The Police
        08/06/15
        The third AllBum.Art remix for The Police. According to the band, giant steps are what you talk, Walking On The Moon. But we learn nothing of this on the original cover of the single, only that grey, yellow and cyan make for a jarring color scheme. On the remix, we see exactly what we would expec

      • Pretty Flamingo - Manfred Mann
        07/06/15
        Overall, we give a thumbs up to the original cover of Pretty Flamingo by Manfred Mann. Why? Well it contains a hot babe wearing clothes that resemble the color scheme of flamingos and carrying some feathers. No sign of the band themselves, but that can be overlooked. The remix, then, doesn'

      • Something Happened On The Way To Heaven - Phil Collins
        06/06/15
        Another angelic remix from AllBum.Art as we find out that Something Happened On The Way To Heaven. According to the original cover artwork, what seems to have happened is that some old codger got grumpy. Perhaps that could happen on the way to heaven, but in the remix, a more plausible story is to

      • Lay Your Hands On Me - Bon Jovi
        05/06/15
        Not the first remix of a piece of cover artwork for Bon Jovi. This time it is his 1989 single Lay Your Hands On Me. Quite how the picture of Mr Jovi on the original cover of the single is meant either to represent the laying on of hands, or enticing you in to wanting to lay your hands on him is unc

      • In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida - Iron Butterfly
        04/06/15
        In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida is, as every Iron Butterfly fan knows, just a corruption of the phrase, 'in the garden of Eden'. The original cover of the album (and single) do nothing to portray the biblical scene that you would normally associate with the garden of Eden. Thankfully, this has been c

      • Skinny Dippin' - Vengaboys
        03/06/15
        A user submitted entry from Pim Weermuizje from the Netherlands. Pim has sent us his remix of Skinny Dippin' by Vengaboys. Pim tells us that this was actually a B-side, but was very popular nonetheless. The original cover sees the Vengaboys (of which at least 2 appear to be girls) posing by a

      • Girl From Mars - Ash
        02/06/15
        What does a Girl From Mars look like? According to Ash, on the cover of their single, she is green with red lipstick. Other than that, she seems quite normal. That is, if you count green as normal. On the remixed artwork not that much has been changed. The girl is still green, and normal, but wi

      • Joanie Sommers - June Is Bustin' Out All Over
        01/06/15
        June Is Bustin' Out All Over - yes - it's finally June and there's a hint of summer in the air. Joanie Sommers sang this heliocentric song from the musical Carousel but the single never had a cover, so the original artwork here is just the cover of the actual 7" vinyl label, modi

    • May
      • My White Bicycle - Tomorrow
        31/05/15
        We will give Tomorrow some credit for the cover of their single My White Bicycle. Why would we do this? Well for the simple reason that it has a picture of a bicycle on it, and although the cover is in black and white, thereby obscuring the actual color of the aforementioned bike, it could well be

      • Jesus Use Me - The Faith Tones
        30/05/15
        We were alerted to the cover of the album Jesus Use Me by The Faith Tones, by Colin Fetting of Montgomery, AL. Apparently, it is regarded as one of the worst album covers of all time and so Colin thought we ought to have a go a remixing it. The original cover is, well, just awful. The remix shows

      • A Question Of Lust - Depeche Mode
        29/05/15
        What is A Question Of Lust? Well, it's obviously a single by Depeche Mode, but can the original cover artwork for the single help us to answer the question? Maybe it can, and the answer seems to be about kissing in a sensuous way but without allowing your lips to touch. The remix really does

      • Road To Nowhere - Talking Heads
        28/05/15
        We're on a Road To Nowhere, or at least we were according to New York songstrels Talking Heads. The difficult is, that, according to the original cover, the road, buildings and anything else in the neighborhood have been ripped up by some kind of tornado and thrown randomly into the air. The r

      • Sunlight - DJ Sammy
        27/05/15
        It might just be our warped minds, but on the original cover of Sunlight by DJ Sammy, it appears the Mr Sammy himself is squatting down and holding his head as if he has a headache. Is the sun too bright for his eyes? Whatever the reason, replacing him with something more sunny is definitely in or

      • Angel - Giuseppe Ottaviani Featuring Faith
        26/05/15
        Regular visitors to AllBum.Art will be aware that we have a particular fetish for angels. This, the chance to remix the cover of Angel by Giuseppe Ottaviani Featuring Faith was too much of an opportunity to turn down. On the original cover artwork - no angel. On the remixed cover artwork - one an

      • Jeepster - T-Rex
        25/05/15
        This is where we at AllBum.Art have to make an apology. We found this great picture of a naked babe posing in front of a Hummer and used it to remix the cover of Jeepster by T-Rex. We know that Jeepster and Hummer are not the same thing, but they are very similar. We are hoping you will forgive u

      • Hello - Lionel Richie
        24/05/15
        Another AllBum.Art remix for Mr Lionel Richie. This time it's a user submitted entry from Dale Ancona of Rexburg, ID. Dale tells us:It seems to me that Mr Richie needs his ears checked with his incessant caterwauling of 'hello'. So I thought he should be on the phone to a nurse who

      • Knockin' On Heaven's Door - Bob Dylan
        23/05/15
        Bob Dylan has us Knockin' On Heaven's Door in this remix of the cover of his 1973 single. Now far be it for us to in any way denigrate the efforts of such an iconic singer, but we want to know what we will find, should we go a-knocking on the door to Eden. The remix offers a glimpse to w

      • Big Mistake - Natalie Imbruglia
        22/05/15
        Another remix for Australian Natalie Imbruglia, whose song titles seem to lend themselves to remixing. This time it's the turn of her 1998 single Big Mistake. On the original cover we see Ms Imbruglia, though it is not clear what the mistake is. Perhaps it is the rather unfetching jacket tha

      • Puss 'n' Boots - Adam Ant
        21/05/15
        As we say many times at AllBum.Art, sometimes the title of a song is just screaming for a remix and Puss 'n' Boots by Adam Ant is one of those songs. The original artwork shows Mr Goddard in of his retro pirate/highwayman poses. The remix shows a babe wearing boots, and a hat styled in a

      • Angel - Saint Etienne
        20/05/15
        A triple-play of angelic madness for Saint Etienne, as we remix the cover of their single Angel. You can choose what degree of angelicity you desire. On the original there are no angels. On the first remix there is one angel. And on the second remix there are two angels (or to be precise there is

      • Gonna Catch You - Lonnie Gordon
        19/05/15
        Who do you want to catch you if you fall? Is it Lonnie Gordon, because if it is, you are in luck. Ms Gordon is Gonna Catch You, or at least that is what she says she is going to do, but the original cover of her single doesn't offer much indication of how she will do this. The remixed artwor

      • You Can Get It If You Really Want - Desmond Dekker
        18/05/15
        You Can Get It If You Really Want, is what Desmond Dekker so aptly told us in 1970. But the original cover artwork of the single, whilst allowing us to see Mr Dekker, doesn't indicate what it is that we might want to get if it were on offer. The remix solves this as we see that what appears t

      • See Thru - Smalltown DJs Featuring Lisa Lobsinger
        17/05/15
        When the title of a track is See Thru, there is always plenty of scope for a remix of the cover artwork, and this track by Smalltown DJs Featuring Lisa Lobsinger is no exception to the rule. On the original cover we see nothing at all, just the name of the artist and the title of the song. On the

      • Desert Rose - Sting Featuring Cheb Mami
        16/05/15
        Another triple-play from AllBum.Art, this time from Sting Featuring Cheb Mami. The song is called Desert Rose and on the original cover we see Mr Sumner staring out across the desert. But what is he looking at? Is there a desert rose in front of him? It appears there could be as in the remixes w

      • Candles - Alex Reece
        15/05/15
        Alex Reece brought us the single Candles in 1996. But the cover of the single had been passed through the highest possible 'blur' setting on whatever photo editing tool that had been used, telling us nothing about why the cover has any connection to candles. Thankfully, AllBum.Art has fo

      • Poison - Alice Cooper
        14/05/15
        It's easy to wonder what Alice Cooper was thinking when they prepared the cover for their single Poison. Were they thinking that by having a dark, foreboding background, it might hint at industrial waste? Were they thinking that writing the word 'poison' in red was somehow reminisce

      • Honest Mistake - The Bravery
        13/05/15
        What do you make of the original cover artwork for the single Honest Mistake from The Bravery? It appears to show two babes wearing little more than high heels, but whose features have been so badly blurred that whether they are clothed or not is totally unclear. Thankfully, AllBum.Art can exclusi

      • Love And Kisses - Love And Kisses
        12/05/15
        Whilst we are dealing with those 70's songsters Love And Kisses, here is a remix for their eponymously titled first album (in case that means nothing to you, it means the album is named after the band and is also called Love And Kisses). The original cover shows a babe whose clothes are being

      • How Much, How Much I Love You - Love And Kisses
        11/05/15
        The 1970s seem to be the heyday for album covers that were already high on the risqué register. The original cover of How Much, How Much I Love You by Love And Kisses shows a naked babe riding a horse but in an erotic pose, not a lady Godiva pose where her extremities are covered by her long hair.

      • Perfect 10 - The Beautiful South
        10/05/15
        The second in this short series of user-submitted remixes from The Beautiful South by Wilf Hooton of Hull, UK. This time Wilf has provided us with a triple-play of remixes for the song Perfect 10. Wilf says, "I couldn't decide which babe on the remix was more appropriate, the perfect spe

      • Rotterdam (Or Anywhere) - The Beautiful South
        09/05/15
        Two in a row remixes that have been submitted by a self-proclaimed fan of AllBum.Art, both of them remixes for songs by The Beautiful South. The first is for their single Rotterdam (Or Anywhere). As even the densest geography student knows, Rotterdam is in Holland where, even the densest sociology

      • 5.7.0.5. - City Boy
        08/05/15
        City Boy's song, 5.7.0.5., is obviously about making a telephone call. But the cover of their single doesn't even have a phone on it and although the band screech on about '5705 but there's no reply, I keep calling...' they don't provide us with any idea of why they wo

      • Upside Down - DJ K Gee
        07/05/15
        A remix of a remix, or 'remix squared'. Upside Down by DJ K Gee is a remix of Diana Ross's original version of Upside Down. Exactly what the original cover tells us is very unclear, it's just a 70s inspired jumble of bright colors. The remix is far more topsy turvy and shows a

      • Upside Down - A*Teens
        06/05/15
        The original cover and title of Upside Down by the A*Teens is odd in two ways:The remix at least fixes most of these problems as we find 'a teen' who is 'upside down'. There are also several other teens around, thereby dealing with the plurality problem. uʍop ǝpᴉsdn!

      • What About Me? - Moving Pictures
        05/05/15
        This user submitted entry comes from Dale of Woolloomooloo, Australia. Dale doesn't give us his family name but if it is as long as unpronounceable as the name of the town he lives in, perhaps that's for the better. Dale has sent us a remix of the cover of What About Me, by Moving Pictur

      • You Win Again - Bee Gees
        04/05/15
        According to the Bee Gees, You Win Again. Or someone wins again. The thing is, the original cover gives no indication of the competition that must be taking place in order that someone can win (again), and someone can lose (maybe for the first time, maybe not - the band are not specific on that po

      • Naked - Reef
        03/05/15
        What is the old maxim... "An opportunity lost will never roll a stone over the cook's broth", or something like that. Either way, Reef missed an enormous opportunity here with their single Naked, in two particular ways. Firstly, the title of the song, naked, which is just asking for

      • The Riverboat Song - Ocean Colour Scene
        02/05/15
        Another nautical remix, this time from Ocean Colour Scene who are sailing along in The Riverboat Song. The original cover shows us the band and maybe, just possibly, they used a fish-eye lens to give their slightly squinted perspective. But far better might be a babe on a boat, on a river. And be

      • Sailing On The Seven Seas - OMD
        01/05/15
        Sailing On The Seven Seas, right? That is the title of the song by Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (or OMD for short)? So how come the original cover artwork seems to show an oil slick? Is that what OMD believe constitutes good design? At AllBum.Art we thought the whole thing would look better

    • May
      • Crumblin' Down - John Cougar Mellencamp
        30/04/15
        Yet another suggestion for a remix by our good buddy Scott of Orlando, FL. We liked his recommendation to remix Crumblin' Down by John Cougar Mellencamp, especially because the original cover of the single is just so damned awful. On it we see Mr Mellencamp trying to stop his jeans falling do

      • Hey Man, Nice Shot - Filter
        29/04/15
        Completing our very short two day run of remixed artwork around the topic of tennis, we have the 1995 single by Filter, entitled Hey Man, Nice Shot. But does the original cover provide any indication of how the game is going? No, but the remix does. The only problem is that the title suggests it

      • First Serve - De La Soul
        28/04/15
        Another remix for Long Island hip-hop gangstas De La Soul, and the first of two in a series of remixes which, for no particular reason, focus on tennis. The original cover of First Serve shows the band sitting around doing what hip-hop gangstas do - playing with money and looking threatening. The

      • It Keeps Rainin' (Tears From My Eyes) - Bitty Mclean
        27/04/15
        A reggae song about rain. On the one hand, it does rain a lot in the Caribbean, being tropical and all. On the other, keeping raining does not make a good tourist advertisement for the region. So kudos to Bitty Mclean for his song It Keeps Rainin' (Tears From My Eyes) for balancing out these

      • Sail Away - David Gray
        26/04/15
        David Gray tells us to Sail Away. But David, why? According to the original cover of his single, it is because David looks so uninspired by his own song that we would want to get away from it as quickly as possible. To rectify this problem, in the remix we have replaced Mr Gray by a naughty naval

      • Midnight In Chelsea - Jon Bon Jovi
        25/04/15
        The first remix here at AllBum.Art for the solo Jon Bon Jovi and we find him standing around at Midnight In Chelsea. Unfortunately for us, the picture of Mr Jovi tells us nothing of the goings-on so late at night. Fortunately for us, the remix tells a different story and we can more clearly see wh

      • Horny - Mousse T Versus Hot 'N' Juicy
        24/04/15
        One of those songs that evokes summer vacations of yore, drinking all night, kissing strangers and worse, Horny by Mousse T Versus Hot 'N' Juicy is the archetypical spring break anthem. So why does the cover show a lounge lizard lothario and two bored looking babes? No doubt they are the

      • I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked - Ida Maria
        23/04/15
        In general, we would agree with the sentiment in I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked by Ida Maria, but that sentiment is not reflected on the original cover of the single which just shows Ms Maria in what looks like a Mickey Mouse Club t-shirt. The remix offers up two pictures of the sa

      • Candy - Aggro Santos Featuring Kimberly Wyatt
        22/04/15
        Candy, right? That is what Aggro Santos Featuring Kimberly Wyatt are singing about isn't it? Yes? Well why then, does the cover just feature Mr Santos and Ms Wyatt who appear to be cold, given that they are so well wrapped up? Where's the candy? Thankfully the remix of the cover artwor

      • We Are All Prostitutes - The Pop Group
        21/04/15
        This doozy of a single was brought to our attention by Matt Tresh of Batley, England. Matt didn't offer to remix the cover of We Are All Prostitutes by The Pop Group, he just said it would surely make a good subject. We agree with you Matt and have taken the original cover and replaced the wo

      • Trampolene - Julian Cope
        20/04/15
        Now the question is this... Did Julian Cope purposefully mis-spell the word trampoline on the cover of his single Trampolene, or is he just dyslexic? The answer to this perplexing and rather pointless question is simple... who cares! Instead let's care about the content of the artwork itself

      • Rhythmic Feet - AKB
        19/04/15
        A rather obscure disco album from the 1970s? Yes! Why? Because the original cover of Rhythmic Feet by AKB shows a babe in red high heels, wearing a red dress sitting on a piano. And? And, the remix shows the same. So? So the babe has aged a little since the 70s but seems to have remained in p

      • Sexy Girl - Big Zero
        18/04/15
        We couldn't decide whether Big Zero scored anything at all, or just a big fat zero, with the cover of their single Sexy Girl. OK, it shows a girl, but not everyone's idea of sexy is to have that girl painted as a leopard. Maybe we're wrong but we thought that a better sexy girl for

      • Fairies Wear Boots - Black Sabbath
        17/04/15
        According to heavy metal gurus Black Sabbath, Fairies Wear Boots. But according to the cover of their single, what actually happens is that the band members stand around at dusk (or is it dawn) in a forest. Perhaps they are waiting to see if they can find any fairies. The remix helps them along a

      • Hi Ho Silver Lining - Jeff Beck
        16/04/15
        Jeff Beck obviously believes that the most important thing to put on the cover of his single Hi Ho Silver Lining is... himself! OK Mr Beck, we can see how you could think that, and that does at least give you some points for effort, but there are so many better things that could be on the cover. L

      • Moon - Virus
        15/04/15
        It's always a genuine pleasure to receive a submission from someone who visits the site. This time, Barry Coopland of England has provided us with a remix of Moon by Virus. Barry tells us:This was a banger back in the day but the cover was shit. I put a topless babe on a beach on it instead.<

      • Saddle Up - David Christie
        14/04/15
        Saddle Up and ride your pony, is what David Christie tells us to do. But the original cover of his single only pays homage to Mr Christie himself and provides no indication of how, what, or who should be saddled. So AllBum.Art brings you another triple-play of remixes (well two remixes actually, an

      • Chain Reaction - Diana Ross
        13/04/15
        Now, what should be done with a song title like Chain Reaction by Diana Ross? Well obviously some kind of picture depicting a babe tied up in chains, having a reaction. Not an allergic reaction but something more sensual. The problem is that there are so many 'chained-up' pictures to ch

      • X - Ed Sheeran
        12/04/15
        Now you might think that the title of Ed Sheeran's album X reflects some kind of adult theme. In reality it is just an abbreviation for multiply. But that doesn't stop us here at AllBum.Art from ignoring this fact and providing a remix that has an adult theme. In this case the X-rated c

      • You Can't Hurry Love - The Supremes
        11/04/15
        You Can't Hurry Love, or so say The Supremes in their 1966 single. But why is this the case, because the original single cover doesn't really explain it, unless it is because the band are about to fall off the stage and thus slow motion is needed. In the remix, we find that love really d

      • Ain't Gonna Bump No More (With No Big Fat Woman) - Joe Tex
        10/04/15
        It was OK in the 70s to have titles of songs such as Ain't Gonna Bump No More (With No Big Fat Woman), but today, Joe Tex would no doubt find himself with a lawsuit on his hands for causing offense to the consumptionally challenged. So to help him overcome his dislike of larger ladies, the rem

      • Boops (Here To Go) - Sly And Robbie
        09/04/15
        Another song whose title is clearly misspelled. Boops (Here To Go).. what is boops when it is at home? We think Sly And Robbie were having a bit of fun and really wanted to sing about boobs but were unable to do so because it would have been inappropriate in the 80s. Today, however, such things a

      • Babooshka - Kate Bush
        08/04/15
        Another artwork remix for weird British songstress Kate Bush, whose name alone almost screams for a remix. But in this case, it is the title of the song that is doing the screaming. We don't quite know what Babooshka is, but it is an anagram of "boobs a.k.a. 'h'" (OK, so t

      • Get Ready - The Temptations
        07/04/15
        We're goin' back in time, to nineteen sixty-nine, where groovin' was sublime and... you get the idea. Get Ready is a soul classic from The Temptations, and in true sixties style, the original cover shows the band ready to groove. The remix, on the other hand, shows two babes who are

      • All About That Bass - Meghan Trainor
        06/04/15
        Now we all know what Meghan Trainor is singing about in her single All About That Bass. She is singing about the lower register of the female body, the bottom end of the frequency range. Hell, let's just say it, she's talking about ass, pure and simple. So why does the original cover art

      • Ooh La La - Britney Spears
        05/04/15
        One of those remixes prompted by finding a weird picture rather than by the song itself. Mind you, Ooh La La is the kind of title that is ideal for a remix anyway, given it's Parisian connotations. Anyway, the original single shows a blue smurf, who vaguely resembles Ms Spears which is perhaps

      • Send Me An Angel - Scorpions
        04/04/15
        Returning to another topic we enjoy remixing, angels, this remix of Send Me And Angel by the Scorpions is a particular favorite of ours. The original cover artwork does a reasonable job having, as it does, a picture of an angel on it. In this sense, the remix makes no improvements, the only change

      • Man In The Mirror - Michael Jackson
        03/04/15
        Once we knew that we were having a week of mirror based remixes of cover artwork, Adam who normally sits quietly in the corner of the AllBum.Art office burst into fits of giggles. After we had managed to calm him down he explained his idea for a remix of Man In The Mirror by Michael Jackson, at whi

      • Mirror In The Bathroom - The Beat
        02/04/15
        Yes, you guessed right, another mirror based remix and oddly from another British band, The Beat (known as The English Beat in the US of A) and their song Mirror In The Bathroom. The original cover has all of that 80s, ska stylee, but no mirror and no bathroom. The remix rectifies this and we see

      • Mirror Mirror - Pinkerton's Assorted Colours
        01/04/15
        Another mirror based remix. Today it's Mirror Mirror from British band Pinkerton's Assorted Colours. How do we know they're British? They spell color all funny! The original cover shows the band - how original. In the remix we see, what else, a cute babe getting changed in front of

    • March
      • Mirrors - Justin Timberlake
        31/03/15
        A return to the AllBum.Art hall of shame for Justin Timberlake and in our week of remixes of songs based on the use of a mirror, we find the cover of a single devoid of any reflective surfaces. Thankfully that has all been remedied in the remix, though to be fair, there is only one mirror and not t

      • Your Mirror - Simply Red
        30/03/15
        This week, we, here at AllBum.Art are beginning a series of remixes focused around mirrors. To kick us off, here is a remix of Your Mirror by Simply Red. In the original cover we see no sign of a mirror at all, but having reflected on it, we felt it needed one and so the remix shows a cut babe adm

      • Hot Shot - Karen Young
        29/03/15
        A disco diva remix today, from Karen Young. On the original cover of her 1978 single Hot Shot we see Ms Young givin' it some into a microphone. Whether she is hot or not, she doesn't seem to be shot. So in the remix Ms Young has been replaced by a different babe who is definitely hot, a

      • Livin' La Vida Loca - Ricky Martin
        28/03/15
        She's into superstition, black cats and voodoo dolls. Or at least that is how Ricky Martin describes the subject of his song Livin' La Vida Loca. She'll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain. Hmm, so why does the original cover artwork give us no indication of wh

      • Cha Cha Heels - Eartha Kitt And Bronski Beat
        27/03/15
        Can you see what is wrong with the original cover of Cha Cha Heels by Eartha Kitt And Bronski Beat? Well it has a picture of Ms Kitt, so it's not that. It has a picture of Bronksi Beat, so it's not that. But where are the heels that Ms Kitt sings about? The designer has cropped the photo

      • The Size Of A Cow - The Wonder Stuff
        26/03/15
        What is The Size Of A Cow? According to The Wonder Stuff, the answer to this question is to be found in an old television set that's been colorized yellow and blue. That might be OK for them, but for us here at AllBum.Art, we like something more obvious. For example, a cow is found in a field

      • Daydream In Blue - I Monster
        25/03/15
        What's your idea of a Daydream In Blue? Is it a lot of badly drawn blue flowers? If it is, then you're on the same level as I Monster on the original cover of their 2001 single. When we close our eyes and daydream about blue things, we see something that looks more like the picture on th

      • Is There Something I Should Know - Duran Duran
        24/03/15
        Please, please tell me now, Is There Something I Should Know? That's exactly the kind of question that would spoil all the fun but then again maybe Duran Duran are spoil sports. The cover of their single doesn't provide much enjoyment so thank goodness for the remix which shows a babe ch

      • Do Your Time On The Planet - Lime
        23/03/15
        Completing our week (well just over a week) of futuristic and space-age remixes, we find Lime instructing us to Do Your Time On The Planet. Another triple-play from us here at AllBum.Art. The original cover artwork shows what could the the captain of a space vessel enjoying a dark green cocktail.

      • Method Of Modern Love - Hall & Oates
        22/03/15
        Another remix on a futuristic, space age theme. This time it's Daryl Hall & John Oates who are describing the Method Of Modern Love. Apparently, if the original cover artwork is to be believed, this particular method involves permed hair, mustaches and sideburns. Oh, and leather jackets.

      • Space Oddity - David Bowie
        21/03/15
        Another futuristic remix for David Bowie, this time for his hit Space Oddity. The original cover shows Mr Bowie and although his hair style is a bit of an oddity, the rest of the picture shows nothing that might be from space. The remix shows three neon space creatures who apparently are from the

      • Modern Love - David Bowie
        20/03/15
        If you're sensing a theme this week at AllBum.Art then you wouldn't be far wrong. Our theme this week is space-age and futuristic remixes. And what better source of such material than David Bowie. Today's remix is for Modern Love and on the original cover we see the aforementioned

      • Future Love Paradise - Seal
        19/03/15
        Continuing the vaguely space-age theme, here is a remix for Future Love Paradise by Seal. The original cover shows Mr Samuel (see what he did there - Seal is an anagram of Samuel dropping the mu-sic!) being vaguely futuristic with his curly hair and muscular arm on show. Yeah, right! In the remix

      • She's So Modern - The Boomtown Rats
        18/03/15
        Infamous for not liking Mondays, the cover of The Boomtown Rats single She's So Modern indicates that the band also have odd ideas about what constitutes a modern woman. For them she's got the right clothes to wear, she knows the right things to say, and that is what makes her modern. Fo

      • Humanoid - Stakker
        17/03/15
        Following yesterday's outer-space based remix, we thought another space-aged cover could do with the AllBum.Art treatment. This time it is Humanoid by Stakker that is under the telescope. The original cover has all of that late 1980s post-apocalyptic neo-transigent nonsense going on. The rem

      • Viva Planet M - Montepulciano
        16/03/15
        There is many a time, here at AllBum.Art that our cover artwork remixes select obscure or unheard of songs just because the title owes itself to such a remix. Viva Planet M by Montepulciano is one of those songs. We found the rather cute picture of the babe holding a ray-gun in the remix and neede

      • Mrs. Robinson - Lemonheads
        15/03/15
        Here's to you Mrs. Robinson! Originally a hit in 1968 for Simon And Garfunkel, here we deal with the cover of the cover version by Lemonheads. The original version of the cover could have been drawn by a 5 year old, dubious. The remix shows the version of Mrs Robinson that those familiar with

      • In Trance - Scorpions
        14/03/15
        Occasionally, here at AllBum.Art, we find the cover of an album that remixes itself, simply through modernization. On the original cover of the Scorpions album, we see a sexy babe with an electric guitar. On the remix, the identical concept, just a more modern and less clothed version. Bizarrely,

      • Out Of Space - The Prodigy
        13/03/15
        Out Of Space, by The Prodigy is the focus of today's remix. On the original cover, the band are still searching to find what it is that is in space, by using a series of satellite dishes to explore the weirdly colored night sky. On the remix, the thing that is in space has been found and woul

      • The Sea - Morcheeba
        12/03/15
        Flocking to The Sea, crowds of people wait for me. The opening lines to the mellow, moreish sounds of Morcheeba's song. The song is all about the relaxing time that can be had by the sea - but mind the wasp! The cover has a shark on it? Eh? The remixed cover takes us much more closely to th

      • Below The Belt - Boxer
        11/03/15
        The original cover of the Boxer album Below The Belt apparently shows a model called Stephanie Marrian spreadeagled and naked with just a boxing glove covering her decency. Boxer's logo has a belt around it so in essence, the whole of Ms Marrian is below the belt. Full marks for effort there

      • War - Former Vandal
        10/03/15
        War by Former Vandal is apparently a song inspired by the TV show Teen Wolf. On the original cover we see a face daubed with neon paint standing in a room replete with ultra violet light. On the remix we see a babe who is not just a former vandal, but is clearly still keen on tearing places apart,

      • Smoke - Natalie Imbruglia
        09/03/15
        Ribbons of wispy and pungent vapor distort out view of Natalie Imbruglia on the cover of her single Smoke. Under normal circumstances that would score full points on the AllBum.Art leader board containing, as it does, a picture of the artist and a connection to the title of the song. So in a way,

      • Nice Legs, Shame About Her Face - The Monks
        08/03/15
        Any band that describes themselves as neo-punk revivalists deserve to have the cover of their song remixed. Oddly, The Monks do not make this claim, but we decided to remix the cover of their song Nice Legs Shame About Her Legs anyway. On the original - legs. On the remix, a wicked pair of legs b

      • Motor Bikin' - Chris Spedding
        07/03/15

        Another triple-play for you, this time for Chris Spedding's 1975 hit, Motor Bikin'. Now to be fair to Mr Spedding, the original cover does show a motorbike, so in that respect it does reflect the title of the song. We just prefer to see sexy babes on the bike rather than leather be

      • Russians - Sting
        06/03/15
        Whilst we are talking about all things Russian, here is a remix for Russians by Sting. The original cover sees Mr Sumner seemingly deeply concerned about something, probably whether he was about to be assassinated for saying something vaguely negative about the leadership and residents of the USSR.

      • The Freeze - Spandau Ballet
        05/03/15
        Whilst the nights are still longer than average and the days colder than average (at least in the northern hemisphere), we bring you the remix of The Freeze by Spandau Ballet. The original cover is, well, just plain dull. What a roman carriage has got to do with anything is anyone's guess and

      • Let Me Show You - K-Klass
        04/03/15
        What were the band K-Klass thinking when they developed the cover of the single Let Me Show You? What does a whale diving into the ocean have to do with either the band, or the title of the song? The only, possible, tenuous link is that the whale is showing off. We prefer the remix by far in whic

      • Spending My Time - Roxette
        03/03/15
        Another band who have appeared before on AllBum.Art, Roxette once again grace the site. The original cover of their single Spending My Time shows the two band members and a clock, so pretty much full marks for covering the artist and the name of the song. No real need for a remix, but we liked the

      • Graffiti - Maximo Park
        02/03/15
        Another remix for Maximo Park. This time it is for their one of their earliest singles, Graffiti. On the original cover we see a slim, cute babe swaying her long hair (presumably in time with the music). On the remix we see a similar babe with shorter hair beginning to spray graffiti on a wall.

      • Catch Me If You Can
        01/03/15
        A rarity to start March here at AllBum.Art - a remix of the cover of a Blu-Ray and not a song. Catch Me If You Can is the 2002 film in which Tom Hanks chases around the country after Leonardo Di Caprio (a.k.a. Frank Abagnale). On the original cover we see the two aforementioned gentlemen standing

    • March
      • Too Cold - Roots Manuva
        28/02/15
        As February draws to a close and the mercury begins to rise, we close the month with a chilly cover remix of Too Cold by Roots Manuva. On the original cover of the single, we see Mr Smith (easy to see why he chose a different stage name) being the subject of a police raid. On the remix, something

      • The Wall - Pink Floyd
        27/02/15
        All in all, you're just another brick in The Wall is the famous refrain from the title song from the album of much the same name by Pink Floyd. Now we can't knock the band for their choice of cover for their album, being, as it is, a wall. But we can improve it. Instead of the plain whi

      • She's So Lovely - Scouting For Girls
        26/02/15
        Half marks to Scouting For Girls on the original cover of their single She's So Lovely. Why only half marks? Because the song is from 2007 but the picture of the lovely girl (girls actually) on the cover could be taken from the 1870s. The remix fixes this temporal anomaly and replaces the gi

      • Stuck On You - Lionel Richie
        25/02/15
        Another remix for soulful songster Lionel Richie. Stuck on you tells the story of how Mr Richie is in some way glued to another person. The original cover suggests none of this, but instead makes out that what Mr Richie is really stuck on is a cowboy hat. The remix sees a babe that has got far to

      • My Camera Never Lies - Bucks Fizz
        25/02/15
        According to Bucks Fizz, whoever they are, My Camera Never Lies. It seems that, to demonstrate this, the band have dressed up in garb from the Victorian era and posed as if they were in front of an old box camera. Which is a lie, in that they are not from the Victorian era, nor was the picture tak

      • Driving In My Car - Madness
        24/02/15
        There is a simple points scheme here at AllBum.Art. If the cover of a single or album contains the band members (or solo artist) and relates to the title of the song, it scores full points. Thus the original cover for Driving In My Car by Madness scores very highly. There is therefore no need to

      • Do That To Me One More Time - Captain & Tennille
        23/02/15
        Another suggestion by Scott of Orlando, FL. This time it's Do That To Me One More Time by Captain & Tennille that comes under the spotlight. It's nice that on the original cover we can see the Captain and the Tennille but what is it that they want to be done to them again? On the re

      • Don't Stop - Status Quo
        22/02/15
        Back in November 2013 we had a whole week of remixes of covers of songs by Status Quo but as such prolific songwriters of twelve-bar blues based material, there's plenty more to have a go at. Don't Stop is both a single and an album by the band. On the remix we find out exactly why not s

      • Stuck In The Middle With You - Stealers Wheel
        21/02/15
        Stuck In The Middle With You... what images does this conjure up? Is it a bunch of 1970s band members such as those of the band Stealer's Wheel standing around looking, for the most part, bored (the guy on the right is even yawning). Or does it throw up images of a sexy cougar stuck between t

      • Dance (Disco Heat) - Sylvester
        20/02/15
        It seems that in the height of the disco era in the 1970s, there were many sexy covers for singles produced. Dance (Disco Heat) by Sylvester does not capture the spirit of this era very well, which is why we, the good folk at AllBum.Art, are here to remix it for you. The remix shows a babe who is

      • Pregnant For The Last Time - Morrissey
        19/02/15
        The second in the two-day series of remixes of Morrissey single covers. Today's remix is for the song Pregnant For The Last Time. Let's skip the original cover and focus on the remix where we see a clearly pregnant babe who is, shall we say, not the best looking babe on the planet. Woul

      • You're The One For Me Fatty - Morrissey
        18/02/15
        A mini two-day series of remixes of the covers of singles by the former lead singer of the Smiths, Morrissey. The cover for his song entitled You're The One For Me Fatty shows Mr Morrissey himself but not why the particular fatty of whom he sings is the right one for him. On the remix we see

      • Down In The Subway - Soft Cell
        17/02/15
        What on this planet (or any other) were Soft Cell thinking with the original cover of their 1984 song Down In The Subway? Down in the highly confused jumble of a two-year old's map of some kind of underground kingdom perhaps. But a subway looking like that is one that we, at AllBum.Art are no

      • Hitchin' A Ride - Sinitta
        16/02/15
        Continuing the theme of hitch hikin' we find songstress Sinitta (rumored to be a lover of X-Factor millionaire Simon Cowell) singing about Hitchin' A Ride. On the original cover we see Ms Malone looking none too happy about being so down and low that she needs to borrow a ride from someon

      • Hitch Hike - Marvin Gaye
        15/02/15
        Now where were we before we were rudely interrupted by Valentine's Day? Ah, yes, just about to launch a short series of remixes of songs about hitch hiking. Today it's turn of soul legend Marvin Gaye to sing about a Hitch Hike. On the original cover we see Mr Gaye looking ebullient (is

      • Secret Lovers - Atlantic Starr
        14/02/15
        It's Valentine's Day so to put you in the mood, here is a romantic song about the kind of naughtiness that goes on at this time of year. Atlantic Starr sing about their Secret Lover, someone who they shouldn't be with. Maybe they sent them a Valentine's Card. Maybe they didn&#

      • Ridin' Thumb - Seals And Crofts
        13/02/15
        Seals And Crofts sang about Ridin' Thumb, also known, to you and me, as hitch-hiking. Sadly on the cover of their single, there is no evidence of any thumb-related activity, nor, it has to be said, is there any evidence of Mr Seals or Mr Crofts - so a total fail as cover artwork goes. This ha

      • Down In The Tube Station At Midnight - The Jam
        12/02/15
        Naked babes in public places seems to be the order of the day and though we're done with streets, there are other places of a public nature where nude babes hang out. Today it's Down In The Tube Station At Midnight, according to The Jam. Apparently 'the tube' is the name for th

      • Walking In Memphis - Marc Cohn
        11/02/15
        We get the feeling that you're enjoying our series of remixed cover artwork that involves babes walking or standing naked on a street and today's remix will not disappoint. On the original cover of Walking In Memphis by Marc Cohn, we see Mr Cohn. But as usual, there's no evidence of

      • International Bright Young Thing - Jesus Jones
        10/02/15
        We are on a roll with our remixes of artwork that involve babes standing on a street. Today's song may not sound like it would deserve such a remix but to us, when Jesus Jones sings about an International Bright Young Thing, we immediately think of a jet-setting babe standing with her suitcase

      • Walking Down Your Street - The Bangles
        09/02/15
        Another song about your street, this time from girl group The Bangles and their hit Walking Down Your Street. The original cover shows the four band members but they are not walking and not on any street, let alone yours. The remix sees just the one babe, but she is walking and she is on the stree

      • Streets Of Your Town - The Go-Betweens
        08/02/15
        On the original cover of Streets Of Your Town by Australian artist The Go-Betweens, we find a man and what looks like his wife and child. He is holding up a bottle of what looks like milk, and his wife is carrying a picnic basket. This might be a typical street scene in Australia but it looks noth

      • Tie A Yellow Ribbon (Round The Ole Oak Tree) - Dawn Featuring Tony Orlando
        07/02/15
        Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Ole Oak Tree.
        It's been 3 long years,
        Do you still want me?
        Is what the words of this famous song by Dawn Featuring Tony Orlando state. If no yellow ribbons are tied around the tree, the guy will stay on the bus and forget about us. So here we find

      • When You're In Love With A Beautiful Woman - Dr Hook
        06/02/15
        When You're In Love With A Beautiful Woman, it gets hard. That's what Dr Hook told us back in 1979. They do not indicate what gets hard, though it does not take much imagination to work out what they might have meant. The original cover sees the band standing around looking at something

      • Lead The Way - T-Ara
        05/02/15
        An odd one this. T-Ara (pronounced like a tiara) are a Japanese J-Pop girl band. On the cover of their song Lead The Way (LA'booN) we see the six band members standing around looking pretty. Not much to beat that. Except the remix which shows five similar looking girls (though not the same gi

      • Grand Piano - Nicki Minaj
        04/02/15
        Not strictly a single, but a track from Nicki Minaj's album The Pink Print, Grand Piano is a laid back track not reminiscent of her usual upbeat stuff. As it's an album track, there is no original cover but we very much liked this one produced by Creat1ve. The remix adds a dash of color

      • Laid - James
        03/02/15
        Another idea for a remix sent in by Scott of Orlando, FL. This time, Scott says, 'I wonder what you'll make of Laid by James'. The original cover shows the members of the band, standing around in some very floral get-ups, verging on the transvestite. So what have we made on the rem

      • You Caught My Eye - Judy Boucher
        02/02/15
        In a way, it's nice that You Caught My Eye, says Judy Boucher. Because if you hadn't then the cover of the single would have forever remained very un-eye-catching. The original cover shows Ms Boucher as she would look drawn by chalk and charcoal by an imbecile. In the remix we see a bab

      • Country Life - Roxy Music
        01/02/15

        Whoa! Something very special to get February off to a happy start. Four remixes of the cover of Country Life by Roxy Music. The original is the one on the top left and shows two babes: one in see-through white lingerie and the other in black panties but no bra, trying to cover their decency w

    • January
      • You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) - Dead Or Alive
        31/01/15
        You Spin Me Round (Like A Record), says Dead Or Alive. But on the cover of their single the only thing that might cause a spin is the amount of make up that the lead singer is wearing. It was the 1980s mind, when such ostentatious looks were all the rage. Anyhow, the remix shows an 80s babe with

      • Whiteout - Boss Hog
        30/01/15
        A nice try by Boss Hog on the cover of their 2000 comeback album Whiteout. A skinny babe (the lead songstress) standing in skimpy white lackluster underwear with her hand on her hip, posing but looking bored doing it. 6 out of 10 for effort. In the remix a somewhat curvier babe is standing holdin

      • Satisfaction - Benny Benassi Presents The Biz
        29/01/15
        The video to Satisfaction by Benny Benassi Presents The Biz consists of a multitude of hot babes with electrical power tools almost in the form of an infomercial. The cover of the single alludes to this with one of the babes standing in the deep dark grey background holding up what appears to be a

      • Cha Cha Slide - DJ Casper
        28/01/15
        Casper was a friendly ghost, right? Well it seems that DJ Casper is not so friendly. Instead he bosses everyone around, telling them how to stand, when to jump and where to step in his party favorite Cha Cha Slide. The remix tries to help with the sliding element by putting a babe who is nicely g

      • Tears On My Pillow - Kylie Minogue
        27/01/15
        A bit of a fail for Kylie Minogue on the original cover of her single Tears On My Pillow. Although there is a picture of the diminutive Australian songstress, she is not crying and there are no pillows. To be fair to Ms Minogue, the remix also has no tears - yet - but if those two babes keep hitti

      • Stay Sick - The Cramps
        26/01/15
        Always nice to receive a user-submitted entry. Today we have the cover of the album Stay Sick! The original cover of The Cramps album shows a topless babe in fishnet tights bending down and holding up a tiger-skin covered wall. Odd, indeed. The AllBum.Art remix shows the exact same scene, just up

      • It Will Rain - Bruno Mars
        25/01/15
        For reasons that are not adequately explored, the AllBum.Art remix team are particularly fond of remixes involving rain. Today's remix is It Will Rain by no stranger to our remixes, Bruno Mars. On the original cover we see a silhouette of someone sitting on a chair holding an umbrella and wha

      • Hit Me With Your Best Shot - Pat Benetar
        24/01/15
        Close your eyes and imagine what the cover of Hit Me With Your Best Shot by Pat Benetar might look like. Done that? Right, you can open them again. Did you imagine Ms Benetar in a sparkly spaghetti string top? Or did you imagine a naked babe wearing boxing gloves? Now isn't that a coincide

      • Teen Angel - Mark Dinning
        23/01/15
        Oh dear. Mark Dinning, you should be ashamed of yourself (if you hadn't died in 1986). What an opportunity is presented by the cover of a single called Teen Angel, and you waste it by sitting there with a guitar looking for all the world like neither a teen, nor an angel. Damn good job that

      • Walls Come Tumbling Down - The Style Council
        22/01/15
        What do you know, another remix for The Style Council. On the original cover of their single Walls Come Tumbling Down, we see the band members looking very, well, kind of like they are in a band posing for the cover of a single. In the remix we see a babe valiantly trying to keep the building stan

      • Surfer Rosa - Pixies
        21/01/15
        We did laugh when the original cover of the Pixies' album Surfer Rosa was brought to our attention. It seems they were trying to pre-empt any remix by having a Spanish looking flamenco dancer stand topless amidst some religious symbolism. Nice try, but when we translated Surfer Rosa from Spani

      • Do You Really Want To Hurt Me - Culture Club
        20/01/15
        What have we here? On the original cover of Do You Really Want To Hurt Me by Culture Club we see some dude in heavy make-up and with dreadlocks. Most likely that would put him in the 'about to be hurt' category in many cities late at night. In the remix we see a babe who is all but cruc

      • I Made It Through The Rain - Barry Manilow
        19/01/15
        There was a time when it was totally unfashionable to listen to Barry Manilow. That time is still with us, but things can be improved with a decent remix. Or an indecent remix. Either way, this remix of I Made It Through The Rain replaces a rather grey and grainy picture of Mr Manilow with a babe

      • Sex On The Streets - Pizzaman
        18/01/15
        For such an obscure artist, it's odd that this is not the first remix for a track by Pizzaman. This time we find the mozzarella and tomato covered circular man singing about Sex On The Streets. The cover of the single may allude obtusely to the circular and tomato covering that Pizzaman might

      • Crushed By The Wheels Of Industry - Heaven 17
        17/01/15
        New romantics Heaven 17 tell us that they are being Crushed By The Wheels Of Industry. It would seem that, on the original cover of the single, this meant taking a man in a flat cap and spraying him with orange and dark green paint. Perhaps that's what classes for being crushed. Not here tho

      • To Know Him Is To Love Him - The Teddy Bears
        16/01/15
        To Know Him Is To Love Him. Matt here in the AllBum.Art design department seems to think that this song is written about him. But as Matt was not even born when The Teddy Bears wrote this song in 1958, we think he has ideas above his station. What can we say about the remix of the cover artwork t

      • In Public - Kelis
        15/01/15
        A rare triple-play, though Kelis is no stranger to the AllBum.Art web-site. This time we find Ms Rogers extolling the virtues of doing things in public. But on the original cover there is no sign of her exhibitionist tendencies. On the first remix we see a babe who appears to be undressing in pub

      • Grease - Frankie Valli
        14/01/15
        Grease, apparently, is the word. Or so says Frankie Valli. His smiling, fuzzy-haired face grinning out at us from the original cover of the single makes you wonder why grease is a special word at all, not just 'a' word, but 'the' word. The remix helps a little as we see that h

      • Tennis Court - Lorde
        13/01/15
        The original cover of Tennis Court by Lorde scores very highly on the AllBum.Art table as it features both the artist, and the title of the song as we see Lorde standing on a tennis court - full marks! A remix is therefore unnecessary but at the same time entertaining as in the remix we see a babe

      • Khe Sanh - Cold Chisel
        12/01/15
        Mike Toohey wrote to us from Sydney, Australia with a suggestion for a remix. Mike tells us that Khe Sanh by Cold Chisel is about, 'rooting asian babes' and contains the line 'their legs were often open but their minds were always closed'. Mike challenged us to find a way to rem

      • Fake - Alexander O'Neal
        11/01/15
        Another obvious title for a remix of a song, this time Fake by Alexander O'Neal. The original cover shows Mr O'Neal but is it a fake picture of him, it looks quite realistic? The obviousness of the remix is obvious in itself. Instead of Mr O'Neal, we see a babe in a similar pose to

      • Tongue - R.E.M.
        10/01/15
        As we often say, here at AllBum.Art, sometimes a remix for the cover of a record is inspired by the record title, and sometimes by a picture. This remix was inspired by a picture. The original cover of Tongue by R.E.M. shows some blurry photo of what might be a girl. No sign of a tongue of any kin

      • Sharing The Night Together - Dr Hook
        09/01/15
        A week's worth of icy songs is quite enough, so let's get back to the more regular remixes. It's always nice to receive email and better still with suggestions for remixes. We received a suggestion from Scott of Orlando, FL to remix Spending The Night Together by Dr Hook. The origi

      • Ice Hockey Hair - Super Furry Animals
        08/01/15
        There is so much scope for invention when the name of a band is Super Furry Animals and the title of the song is Ice Hockey Hair. What there isn't scope for is having a single cover that shows a drawing of what must be some kind of hockey jockey wearing badly drawn goggles and a microphone. T

      • Sugar Coated Iceberg - The Lightning Seeds
        07/01/15
        When you think about it, to sugar-coat an iceberg would require an awful lot of sugar. But that is what The Lightning Seeds sing about in their song Sugar Coated Iceberg. The cover of their single looks more like a load of failed origami models and whilst there is a passing resemblance to an icebe

      • Frozen - Susana And Josh Gabriel
        06/01/15
        Some dance acts are notoriously lax when it comes to thinking about the design for the covers of their songs. Frozen by Susana And Josh Gabriel is no exception. The original cover shows us nothing at all. Not only are the artists themselves not visible, but other than the very tenuous connection

      • So Cold The Night - The Communards
        05/01/15
        Can you sense the cold, wintery theme that is pervading AllBum.Art this January? Well you should! We continue this theme with a remix of So Cold The Night by The Communards. The original cover of the single shows what can only be assumed to be a cold night sky, though given the pink tinge to the

      • Freeze-Frame - J Geils Band
        04/01/15
        Continuing the chilly January theme, we bring you Freeze-Frame by the J Geils Band. It must have been very cold when the band's artist assembled the original cover artwork for their single as it is apparent that whoever designed it must have had a frozen brain to come up with such a weird repr

      • Cold Hard Bitch - Jet
        03/01/15
        The problem with international music acts such as Australian band Jet, is that their sense of culture doesn't necessarily translate well between continents. This is obvious on the cover of their single Cold Hard Bitch. The original cover shows a montage of random people and the odd car or two

      • Cold Hands - Boss Hog
        02/01/15
        Brrrr... It's January and rather cold outside. Time, then, for a few chilling remixes. We start with the debut album of punk folk songsters Boss Hog. The original cover of their 1990 album Cold Hands shows a babe who is likely to be a bit on the cold side but as for cold, and her hands, the

      • New Year - Sugababes
        01/01/15
        Welcome to 2015 and a Happy New Year from those sultry, sexy Sugababes. The original cover artwork for New Year shows the three members of the band looking sultry and sexy. The remix shows three other babes of a sugary kind looking equally sultry and sexy but this time drinking wine which looks mu

        31/12/14
        What Are You Doing New Year's Eve? That is the question we are being asked by The Orioles. This is another single that is so ancient, it does not have any original cover art. The only artwork is for the original 7" single label which we have lovingly re-created in it's original dark

      • Christmas Disco - The Mistletoe Disco Band
        26/12/14
        The Mistletoe Disco Band only had one album. In fact, they probably didn't even have one, because the album is actually just a bunch of session musicians. Christmas Disco is popular though, and it has been re-mastered. So we thought we would re-master the cover and bring it up to date too.

      • (I'd Like To) Give U One 4 Christmas - Hot Pantz
        25/12/14
        Firstly let all of us here at AllBum.Art wish you a very Merry Christmas. Our gift to you on Christmas Day is a remix of an obscure but very fun Holiday hit called (I'd Like To) Give U One 4 Christmas by Hot Pantz. On the original cover we see the members of the band, one dressed in a box as

      • Christmas Tree - Lady Gaga Featuring Space Cowboy
        24/12/14
        Here we find Lady Gaga Featuring Space Cowboy singing about a Christmas Tree. On the cover we see the aforementioned Ms Germanotta wearing a Santa hat and draped in Christmas Lights. Though she does look a little christmassy, she also looks more than a little uncomfortable. So she will no doubt b

      • Disco Santa - Village People
        23/12/14
        Disco Santa (Claus) was a terrible attempt by the Village People to score a holiday hit. The idea of Santa partying away at Studio 54 is not a bad one, but the cover is very badly executed. In the remix we see a group of holiday hits in their own right. Though they may have been dancing along wit

      • Silver Bells - Jim Reeves
        22/12/14
        Sometimes it's necessary to use a little poetic license when remixing the covers of old songs. This very old song by Jim Reeves is called Silver Bells and on the original cover we see Gentleman Jim (as he was apparently known) in a Holiday setting. In the remix we see a babe also in a Holiday

      • Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer - Various Artists
        21/12/14
        No remix as such here as Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer has been covered by so many artists, but none of them have produced a cover for their version. This cover is therefore a generic version that can be used on any of the versions you might have in your music library. In it we see someone who has

      • Perfect Christmas - S Club 7
        20/12/14
        There's always controversy concerning what constitutes perfection here at the AllBum.Art offices. So when it came time to remix Perfect Christmas by S Club 7, there was endless discussion about what the remixmas of the cover should look like. In the end we plumped for the festive feast you se

      • Santa's Funk And Soul Party - Various Artists
        19/12/14
        A compilation of funky and soulful holiday hits, Santa's Funk And Soul Party is just another holiday hopeful hijacking the season to sell some stock. Sorry, alliteration attack. Anyhow, the original cover shows what even Santa would regard as a rather slim party. Just two people, and still w

      • Christmas In Our Hearts - Jose Mari Chan
        18/12/14
        Nothing says Christmas better than a Philippine singer producing an album of songs and having a cover for his album that shows a Christmas tree made of post-it notes. So it's good to know that that is exactly what Jose Mari Chan has done on his holiday album Christmas In Our Hearts. We though

      • Christmas Songs - Diana Krall
        17/12/14
        The original cover for this 2005 album from jazz songstress Diana Krall shows us Ms Krall lounging on a chair in a flowing green dress. Whilst her dress may have a vague resemblance to a Christmas tree, there is nothing overtly seasonal about the cover at all. On the remix we see a different babe

        16/12/14
        One of those albums that contains lots of different tracks by different artists remixed by different people, brought together under a single cover. Verve Remixed Christmas is a holiday take on some old classics, giving them an up to date feel. Which is what we have done with the cover. Whilst the

        15/12/14
        Would you credit it? Two days in a row and two pieces of cover artwork whose title is Feels Like Christmas. Today's comes from soul legend Al Green. The original cover of this compilation of Mr Green singing holiday songs shows none other than Mr Green himself but despite the (pink) snowflak

      • Feels Like Christmas - The Feeling
        14/12/14
        The original cover artwork for Feels Like Christmas by The Feeling, does have a bit of a Christmas feel to it, largely because of the various Christmas-related items such as a tree and some presents, and even a rather spooky looking carved wooden reindeer/bat effigy. In the remix we find one hot ba

      • Presents For Christmas - Solomon Burke
        13/12/14
        This song is so old, it doesn't have proper original cover art. Presents For Christmas by Solomon Burke dates back to a time when printing was expensive and so the only cover was the middle of the 7 inch single itself. We've extrapolated this to form a more modern cover. Then we've

      • Skiing In The Snow - The Invitations
        12/12/14
        This is not the first remix of Skiing In The Snow, as this original by The Invitations was covered in the 1970s by another band. The original cover of the original song sees the band standing around looking very warm, despite the monochrome picture. They aren't skiing and they aren't in

        11/12/14
        An album cover for a change. This is a remix for Christmas Through Your Eyes by Gloria Estafan. The original cover shows Ms Estafan lounging seductively which for many may be what Christmas would look like through their eyes. The remix shows a babe who is conducting an experiment in bauble-induce

        10/12/14
        A Christmassy song but not one with a Christmassy title, nor, in our case, a particularly Christmassy remix but hey, ho. On the original cover of A Spaceman Came Travelling by Chris De Burgh we see what might have classed as a futuristic drawing in the 1920s but what now just looks like the art-dec

        09/12/14
        As someone once said, 'It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas'. It wasn't Chris Rea though, but when you hear Driving Home For Christmas on the radio, you know that the festive season is in full swing. On the original cover we see a pretty little winter scene in many shade

      • Christmas Lights - Coldplay
        08/12/14
        A triple-whammy Christmas remix for Coldplay's single Christmas Lights. The original cover shows some kind of child's painting of a dark winter sky and some weird blobs of light - presumably that kind of thing is classed as 'charming' in England where Coldplay are based. Here, t

      • I'm Gonna Lasso Santa Claus - Little Brenda Lee
        07/12/14
        I don't think folk across the nation would be happy with Little Brenda Lee if she were to carry out the threat inherent in the title of her song I'm Gonna Lasso Santa Claus. The very thought of having St Nick tied up and unable to attend to his duties is abhorrent to children the world ov

      • Christmas Present Blues - Jimmy Reed
        06/12/14
        Melancholy Jimmy Reed has got the Christmas Present Blues. Not much that can be done about that. But we can cheer up the cover of his single. Now let's think, what might cheer up Mr Reed? Perhaps a picture with some Christmas presents in it? Yes, that would be a good start. And what if the

        05/12/14
        As we move further into December, the artwork remixes get more wintery and cold. And Winter Came is an album full of Celtic karma from Irish artist Enya. Enya is famed for her recordings in which she sings all of the pieces of a 900 piece choir to give an etherial sound to her music. Probably the

      • Run Rudolph Run - Chuck Berry
        04/12/14
        Chuck Berry issues a wise mantra to the most famous reindeer in his song Run Rudolph Run, but the cover of this 1958 song does nothing to explain why it is that the one with the shiny red nose should travel so quickly. Is it to deliver presents on time? No! As we can clearly see in the remix, it

        There are many, many versions of Frosty The Snowman by a myriad of artists including Gene Autry, Perry Como, The Ronettes and Johnny Mathis. But as so many of these versions were after-thoughts, or cynical attempts to sell records at Christmas, and not released as singles in their own right, many d

        02/12/14
        Two consecutive days of remixes where the title of the song is just Snow! Today's is by the Cocteau Twins. The original cover shows all manner of christmassy dealies including Santa, xmas trees and even some deely-boppers. This is all set against a white background that is presumably meant to

        People all over the world, join the Love Train, or so instructed the O'Jays back in 1973. The original cover of their song did nothing to encourage such an activity though, unless your idea of a love train, is one where the O'Jays sing non-stop for the whole journey. Ours is a little dif

      • This Is How We Do It - Montell Jordan
        23/11/14
        This Is How We Do It, says Montell Jordan. But what is how you do it? The only advice given by the original cover is on how to look a bit pouty in black and white. The remix offers more salient advice. In it we see a pregnant babe who is showing us how she got into that state, or at least offeri

      • Jump (For My Love) - Pointer Sisters
        22/11/14
        Another classic '80s song, and an equally classic '80s cover artwork. The cover of Jump (For My Love) by the Pointer Sisters is very colorful, but does not show the sisters. Nor is any jumping evident though stretching the imagination a little, it could be suggested that the uppy-downy na

      • Walk This Way - Aerosmith
        21/11/14
        Who knew that Aerosmith were making records in the 1970s? Well, for one, they did, obviously. This is the remix for the cover of the single Walk This Way, which is perhaps more famous for the remix done with Run DMC. On the original cover of the original single, we see the band on stage in some s

      • Radioactive - Imagine Dragons
        20/11/14
        It is possible, though it seems unlikely, that the scene depicted on the original cover of Radioactive by the Imagine Dragons is in someway connected to nuclear fall-out. But other than the colors being slightly washed-out, there is no real evidence of radiation. In the remix this problem is cured

      • Tease Me - Chaka Demus And Pliers
        19/11/14
        As if Chaka Demus And Pliers isn't an odd enough name for a group, the cover of their single Tease Me is even odder. Other than some badly colored snaps of what can only be presumed to be the band members peering out at the side of a rusted corrugated iron panel, the red blobs at the bottom ma

        Pink, orange, yellow and blue stripes. Is that what The Drifters think that life is like Under The Boardwalk. Well sorry to disappoint them, but it is not. It is a hostile environment where the sea lashes against the exposed metalwork whilst naked babes have to stand around holding up stanchions

        We are particularly proud of the remix of the cover artwork for Two Can Play That Game by Bobby Brown that we have produced. Instead of showing two beret style hats (for no particular reason that is apparent), we show a game that can be played by two, in this case table football. Yes, two can play

        We are very sorry about this. Reggie who does some of the web-design for us said that there must be a song with the word 'tit' in it that could be remixed with a picture of a babe with her tit on show. We should never have let him loose with Gimp! Anyhow, for Prince fans, here is a remi

      • Torn - Natalie Imbruglia
        15/11/14
        An unusual original cover for the single Torn by Natalie Imbruglia, in that the lyrics of the song are included. Is this because Ms Imbruglia's Australian accent makes understanding her singing difficult to comprehend? Or is it the lyricist showing off. Either way, the remix doesn't lose

      • Caught In The Act - Earlene Bentley
        14/11/14
        If ever there weren't a song title destined for a remix, it isn't not Caught In The Act by 1980s hi-energy starlet Earlene Bentley. To be fair to Ms Bentley, the original cover suggest some illicit activity that, if caught, may cause ruptions. The remix though, shows a girl that has alre

      • One Night In Bangkok - Murray Head
        13/11/14
        Bangkok, oriental city, but the city don't know what the city is gettin'. Or so proclaims Murray Head at the start of his single One Night In Bangkok. He then goes on to explain that there will be a chess tournament going on. How dull is that? For most people one night in Bangkok looks

      • You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet - Bachman Turner Overdrive
        12/11/14
        It's nice to be able to help out our Canadian brethren by remixing their nicey-nicey cover artwork. Here we see Bachman Turner Overdrive standing around looking Canadian in their fur coats and lumberjackets. The remix of the cover, though, points to a different story as three cute babes flash

      • Don't Leave Me This Way - The Communards Featuring Sarah Jane Morris
        11/11/14
        Oddly, or maybe not, this is not the first remix for a cover of Don't Leave Me This Way that we have presented. The first was for Thelma Houston but this one is for The Communards Featuring Sarah Jane Morris. The original cover for this single is beyond boring. Zzzzz.... The remix shows a b

      • Two Hearts - Phil Collins
        10/11/14
        The original cover of Two Hearts by Phil Collins shows Mr Collins in various poses taken from the film Buster. That's understandable, but where are the two hearts of which he sings. We, here at AllBum.Art have tracked down the answer. It seems the two hearts to which Mr Collins is referring

      • I Got You Babe - UB40 Featuring Chrissie Hynde
        09/11/14
        Another two-in-a-row but this time not two from the same band, but two songs with the same title. More than that, it's the same song! This version of I Got You Babe is by UB40 Featuring Chrissie Hynde and as for the original cover of the single, what is there to be said. It does not show the

      • I Got You Babe - Sonny & Cher
        08/11/14
        When Sonny & Cher sang I Got You Babe, who could have guessed that their apparently strong connection would be broken. The original cover already suggests that the two of them were not that close, both of them looking as if they are very disinterested in each other. In the remix we see a matur

      • Push The Button - Sugababes
        07/11/14
        Two in a row from the Sugababes. Why two? After yesterday's rather ugly episode, we felt it was necessary to spruce things up a bit. On the original cover of Push The Button we see the babes that are sugary looking, if anything, bored. On the remix we see to different sweet babes and one is

      • Ugly - Sugababes
        06/11/14
        Whatever your view of British babe band Sugababes, Ugly is probably not a word that immediately springs to mind. Which is what makes the cover of their single so ironically misfitting, as the title is ugly but the picture is not. Leap forward some alternative babes to grace the cover who bring the

      • Firestarter - The Prodigy
        05/11/14
        Over in little ol' England, November 5th is a day where they celebrate a failed attempt by Guy Fawkes to burn down the English parliament in 1605. Boy, do those guys bear grudges for a long time. But as a show of brotherly love, we bring you a remix of Firestarter by British band The Prodigy

      • Hot Right Now - DJ Fresh Featuring Rita Ora
        04/11/14
        Hot Right Now? You will be when you see the remix to the cover artwork of this single by DJ Fresh Featuring Rita Ora. Let's, for once, just completely ignore and instead focus only on the remix. A babe (possibly Asian) who could well be naked but whose body is obscured by the towel she is ho

      • Seven - Talla 2XLC
        03/11/14
        We, here at AllBum.Art have no idea what a Talla is or why a Talla should be in size 2XLC (2 Xtra Large Cloth?). And the song is called Seven. And the cover has some weird Japanese characters that seem to spell 'JEJSUO' and the number 120 on it. Why? No idea whatsoever. The remix stay

      • Woman In Chains - Tears For Fears
        02/11/14
        Continuing the chains theme, we bring you the remix of the single Woman In Chains by Tears For Fears. To be fair to the band, the original cover scores a lot of points because it features a woman, in chains. All we have done for the remix is to replace the woman with a more modern model, increase

      • Chains - Tina Arena
        01/11/14
        What better way to begin November and end the Halloween series than with something to do with chains. And Chains by Tina Arena has a lot to do with chains because chains is the title of the song. The original cover sees Ms Arena but there are no signs of any chains. In the remixed artwork we see

      • Better The Devil You Know - Sonia
        31/10/14
        And so to Halloween itself, October 31. And what have we chosen to remix today? An obscure song called Better The Devil You Know by British babe Sonia. The song is about as cheery and bubblegum as it gets, which is what makes it such a good target for a remix. In the original cover we see Sonia s

      • I'm Not Scared - Eighth Wonder Featuring Patsy Kensit
        30/10/14
        Only one more day until Halloween but Eighth Wonder Featuring Patsy Kensit are not the least bit concerned. At least Ms Kensit isn't as she sings I'm Not Scared. She does look a little scared on the cover of the single though so in the remix she has been replaced by a woman who is evident

      • Witch's Promise - Jethro Tull
        29/10/14
        What is it that the Witch's Promised Jethro Tull? To look really stupid wearing cowboy outfits in a field? They obviously upset her somehow. In the remix we see the witches convening a coven to decide what to do next. If only they had allowed Jethro to use a picture of their coven it might

      • Devil Woman - Cliff Richard
        28/10/14
        Another remix for Cliff Richard but this time with a Halloween theme. Mr Richard sings about a Devil Woman, but the cover of his single shows only Mr Richard singing about a devil woman. There's no indication of who the woman might be or what about her it is that makes her so devilish. In th

      • Evil Woman - Electric Light Orchestra
        27/10/14
        Ooh, an Evil Woman. That's what the Electric Light Orchestra are singing about. Sadly, the cover of their single shows a load of hirsute 1970s style men. Oh, you mean that's the band themselves - should have guessed. The remix shows a very evil woman. So evil in fact that she only needs

      • Witchcraft - Frank Sinatra
        26/10/14
        Frank Sinatra's songs regularly make excellent sources for remixing covers here at AllBum.Art. His 1958 song Witchcraft is no exception. On the original cover artwork we see Mr Sinatra. That's it. Just Mr Sinatra. What isn't obvious is that even in the 1950s there were ways to era

      • Devil - Stereophonics
        25/10/14
        Now we kind of like the original cover for the song Devil by Stereophonics. They have tried to reflect the somewhat naughty nature of a devil by introducing what appears to be walls covered in multicolored slime and a babe whose provenance is questionable. As for the lipstick, that bit is not clea

      • Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic - The Police
        24/10/14
        In the run-up to Halloween, we thought we at AllBum.Art should provide a few remixes of the cover artwork of some Halloween Hits. We're beginning gently with this remix of a song by The Police of their song Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic. The original cover is a little mystical, perhaps.

      • My Generation - The Who
        23/10/14
        Another viewer submitted entry, this time from Rosemary Kittle of Palm Bay, FL. Of her remix of My Generation by The Who she writes:People think that us silver-surfers are just interested in vacations and pensions but many of us still enjoy a good time in the bedroom. My remix of the song shows ho

      • Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5 Featuring Christina Aguilera
        22/10/14
        A first remix of a song by Maroon 5 here at AllBum.Art but not the first for Christina Aguilera. Moves Like Jagger tells the story of how the band's singer can perform like the old Rolling Stones frontman. But the cover does not demonstrate his skills in this regard. The remix shows a couple

      • Work - Kelly Rowland
        21/10/14
        Now let's see what's going on here. In the original cover for the single Work by Kelly Rowland, we see Ms Rowland standing around in the nude, well except for some kind of silver decoration on her back. But no evidence of her doing any work. In the remix we see a babe who is clearly har

      • Moving On Up - M People
        20/10/14
        Here we are with a remix of the cover art for Moving On Up my M People. On the original cover we see the frizzy haired lead singer of the band looking, if anything, very glum. Thankfully that can be resolved as we have done in the remix. On the remixed cover we see a similar looking babe with equ

      • Sunday Girl - Blondie
        19/10/14
        Sometimes, here at AllBum.Art we like to have a little fun. Well, when we say 'sometimes' we mean 'most of the time'. In that vain, when we saw the picture that we have used on the remixed cover of Sunday Girl by Blondie, Chas who deals with all the web-stuff said 'Hey, th

      • It's My Party - Jessie J
        18/10/14
        Another remix for Jessie J, this time for her single It's My Party. On the original cover we see Ms J in five different poses but where's the party? There's no cake and no balloons. The remix corrects this fatal error and we find a babe who is having a great time at a party. How do

      • Girls Who Play Guitars - Maximo Park
        04/10/14
        When Maximo Park sang about Girls Who Play Guitars, it would appear, if the cover of their single is to be believed, that what was actually on their mind was two relatively ordinary people in grey clothes looking into the deep yellow beyond. What we think about when we see the title girls who play

      • Trick Me - Kelis
        03/10/14
        We fail to see why sucking on a lollipop would constitute being tricked in any way, unless it had hot chilli powder in it. But this is what Kelis thinks would make a good representation of that particular scenario. We think that Trick Me would be better represented by the picture in the remixed co

      • Glamour Pussy - Hipkiss
        02/10/14
        Before you go getting carried away - yes - there are an enormous range of ways in which the cover to a song called Glamour Pussy could be remixed. But trying to stay in the glamorous style that the band Hipkiss adopted, we have shied away from the more obvious photos and instead replaced the cute b

      • Fuck Me Pumps - Amy Winehouse
        01/10/14
        One should never speak ill of the dead, or so they say, but with the month of October beckoning, perhaps pointing out the glaring mistake in the cover of their single is permissible. The cover of Fuck Me Pumps by the now deceased Amy Winehouse shows Ms Winehouse lounging around but, and here's

      • I Was A Ye-Ye Girl - Doing Time
        30/09/14
        What can we say about I Was A Ye-Ye Girl by Doing Time, other than yeah, baby! Apparently, Ye-Ye girls were a phenomenon in the 1960s in France where they were the high fashion pop babes of the time. The original cover provides no glimpse of what such a girl might have looked like so it is good th

      • Georgy Girl - The Seekers
        29/09/14
        Still back in the 1960s, as we discover what Georgy Girl looks like. The Seekers provide no real indication of what a Georgy Girl is or does and though the 1960s are a long way back in the past, we at AllBum.Art are proud to have found a picture of a Georgy Girl in the internet archives. It seems

      • Jackie - Scott Walker
        28/09/14
        Always nice to receive a well thought through remix from someone who is clearly a bit mad. Dave Wilson of London, England has sent us this remix of the single Jackie by Scott Walker. Dave takes up the story:Jackie was the name of a pirate radio station in the 1980s in London and used this song as

      • Lessons In Love - Level 42
        27/09/14
        Lessons In Love are what Level 42 sing about. But what does the cover of their single teach us? Why nothing more than the fact that the band were more concerned about posing in black and white than in helping us to understand what lessons in love might be like. That needs to be remedied immediate

      • We Are The Champions - Queen
        26/09/14
        We Are The Champions, or so say British rock legends Queen. But does the cover of their single scream out this fact with gay abandon? No. It doesn't. In fact, it doesn't do anything other than name the band and the title of the song. So much better then that the remix abandons this pa

      • Waterfalls - TLC
        25/09/14
        What would you expect to see on the cover of a single called Waterfalls? Would it be three dudettes dressed in baggy clothes presented in a cartoon stylee? Well the three dudettes on the original cover are meant to be the members of the band TLC whose song it is. But where's the wet? The wa

      • Laughter In The Rain - Neil Sedaka
        24/09/14
        Another in our ongoing 'rain' series... In the song Laughter In The Rain, Neil Sedaka tells us that he is walking hand-in-hand with the one he loves. On the cover, though, he is just sitting around in a very fetching 1970s shirt that has clearly been nowhere near any rain, nor is there an

      • I Wish It Would Rain Down - Phil Collins
        23/09/14
        Continuing in the 'rain' series, here's a remix of I Wish It Would Rain Down by Phil Collins. On the original single cover we see Mr Collins looking like he was hoping to go on a picnic but that the rain stopped him and he's irked. Now the shame of it is that on the remix we ca

      • Love Will Come Through - Travis
        22/09/14
        Here we are again with another dreary song by Travis. And accompanying their melancholy, downbeat performance is the cover of a single that could have been made by a 10 year old with no idea of art. Thankfully the remix shows something more akin to the ethos of the song. A sexy babe in a see thro

      • Why Does It Always Rain On Me - Travis
        21/09/14
        Yes, summer is well and truly over. The sun has gone and the dreary rainy days are settling in. And what better way to not enjoy a dreary rainy day than to listen to a dreary song about rainy days. To the rescue is Scottish band Travis and their dreary song Why Does It Always Rain On Me. Perhaps

      • Sunrise - Ashiva
        20/09/14
        Well it's nearly over. 'What is?', you ask. The summer of course. Yes, today is the last day of summer and we've brought you many a summer sizzler over the season. We conclude the summer with Sunrise by Ashiva. The original cover is just awful, truly awful. Who thought that

      • My Favourite Waste Of Time - Owen Paul
        19/09/14
        Your my Favorite Waste Of Time, sang Owen Paul back in the 1980s when songs didn't need to make sense. From the cover of the single, what can we surmise? It seems like the waste of time that Mr Paul is singing about is going down to the cineplex and watching a movie about two people holding h

        18/09/14
        A reader submitted entry from Hemming Feddersen of Denmark. Apparently I See Right Through To You was the theme tune to the Danish version of Big Brother. No doubt DJ Encore Featuring Engelina made some capital from that old chestnut. Hemming tells us:It's all very smart. The song has some

        17/09/14
        The Goombay Dance Band, who could possibly forget them? Except everyone, la? This remix is a special request for someone we will just call JQ - he knows who he is. Initially we thought Seven Tears, perhaps we could do a large wedding cake and claim we thought the title was seven tiers? But that

        16/09/14
        By the Rivers Of Babylon is where you will find Boney M. Hey, just hang on a cotton-picking minute, isn't this the same single cover that you remixed yesterday? Well, yes it surely is. But the cover was a double A-side and so today we are remixing the other side of the single, that OK for you

      • Brown Girl In The Ring - Boney M
        15/09/14
        Brown Girl In The Ring, la, la, la, la. Classic lyrics if ever there weren't any. And what about the cover of this single by Boney M? Does it show a brown girl, well arguably yes as several of the band members could qualify for that. Are they in a ring? No. Then we have the remix which sho

        Whilst we're doing the whole 'older woman' thing, what better song to remix than LL Cool J's 1990 classic Mama Said Knock You Out. Mr Cool J seems to think that this means standing around, fists tight, shirt off, medallions glinting in the darkness. We think it means that Mama

      • Summer Son - Texas
        13/09/14
        Summer Son. Hmm... now what kind of image does the title of this 1999 single from Texas conjure up? The band themselves thing that it is a picture of the lead singer posing and pouting on what appears to be a summer's evening in Houston. But that's 'summer sun' not 'summe

      • Here Comes The Sun - The Beatles
        12/09/14
        Not a single from The Beatles as such, but a track from the multi-selling album Abbey Road, Here Comes The Sun seemed to deserve a remix as much as any other song. The inspiration, well let's just say that in the remix, it's very clear where the sun is coming from, isn't it...? And

        11/09/14
        It's not that often that we delve so far back in time for a remix, but as the summer slowly draws to a close, it's time for a few more summer sizzlers before the long nights draw in and the rain starts to fall. You Are My Sunshine was recorded my many artists but none oozed warmth like Bi

Tworfing around on the original cover is Ms Lott a-leaning and a-deaning to a backways doogh, a-holding her stilettio-folio to a-stop from a-fallin overwise. On the remix, well an arrow b

      • Tears - Ken Dodd
        09/09/14
        Tears. Is that it? Not much of a title to go on is it? But then back in the swinging 60s, perhaps that's all that was needed by way of the title of a song to give it credulity. At least that's what Ken Dodd must have thought. But at least show us some tears on the cover of the single

        08/09/14
        Anyone For Tennis? A cry that goes out through the ages to those who enjoy that kind of racket (see what we did there). Cream sang about this in 1968. But, and here's the rub, the cover of their single, singularly fails to sing or even hum anything that is connected with the ancient and vagu

        07/09/14
        Who would have believed that a band as obscure as Visage would merit a remix of their single covers here at AllBum.Art? But here we are with a remix of the cover artwork for their single Night Train. The original cover shows the lead singer (Steve Strange no less) standing around in black and whit

        06/09/14
        Caught In The Middle by Juliet Roberts is one of those songs that has been remixed so many times that it doesn't know whether it's coming our going. So the time seems beyond beyond to remix the cover of the single. The original cover shows Ms Roberts in a fetching fur-lined coat. The qu

      • Everybody's Got Summer - Atlantic Starr
        05/09/14
        Everybody's Got Summer, at least they have according to Atlantic Starr. But the East Coast crooners seem to think that having summer standing around in front of a derelict printer's building is the way to 'got summer'. We don't 'got' that, and prefer to think of

      • The Sun Has Got His Hat On - Ambrose And His Orchestra
        04/09/14
        As if yesterday's remix wasn't going far enough back in time, we delve even deeper into the depths for today's. The Sun Has Got His Hat on was performed by Ambrose And His Orchestra in, wait for it, 1932! The original cover shows a pin-up girl of the era on a beach holding her sun h

      • Lollipop - The Chordettes
        03/09/14
        Lollipop, lollipop, ooh lolly-lolly-lolly... For this song we are going way back in time to the 1950s, but it's a song that makes as much sense now as it did then. The Chordettes sang lollipop, and from the looks of the cover artwork of their single, they did so whilst sitting in the rear of a

      • Things We Lost In The Fire - Bastille
        02/09/14
        Whilst we are talking about hot burning things like fire, Bastille's song Things We Lost In The Fire has a major fault. The cover of the single tells us nothing about what was lost in the fire at all. Is it a wolf on a broken down motor? In a desert? If you had lost that, would it be worth s

      • Bonfire Heart - James Blunt
        01/09/14
        James Blunt regales us with his tales of fiery love in his song Bonfire Heart. But though his song may scream of burning beauty, the cover just shows Mr Blunt and the name of the song. Where, you are asking, is the fire. Where are the hearts? Thankfully the remix of the cover artwork deals with

        Although August may almost be over, the summer sun is still shining. And when the summer sun is shining, what better to do than shuffle, at the sea side. That is, as it goes, what Terry Dactyl And The Dinosaurs sang about back in the 1970s, when the sun was known to also shine. Sea Side Shuffle i

        30/08/14
        Whilst we're talking about being Lifted as we so definitely were, here's another song with the same name. This time though, the song is by Naughty Boy Starring Emeli Sandé and comes hot on the hooves of the hot 100. You're right, we should stop trying to be DJs and focus on the fac

        Lifted, we should be lifted, we could be lifted, they could be lifted, we all should be lifted... and so this somewhat repetitive song by the Lighthouse Family goes on. And on. And did we mention that it is repepitititive, and goes on about being lifted? And does the cover reflect this? Not origi

      • Sowing The Seeds Of Love - Tears For Fears
        28/08/14
        Sowing The Seeds Of Love was a 1989 hit for British be-moaners Tears For Fears. The lilting melancholy dirge is about planting seeds and growing a hippiesque sunflower, the whole thing being reminiscent of a 1960s pot party. The cover alludes to all this hippy-infused nonsense with its girl and its

      • Show Me Love (America) - The Wanted
        27/08/14
        Show Me Love America. How do we do that? According to The Wanted, we do it by standing around in black and white. That doesn't sound either very loving or very American as far as we can see. What does sound like someone showing America some love would be a hot babe with an American flag. A

        26/08/14
        Where roses are concerned, red is a good color (not the blue, green and yellow kind that Ms Anderson prefers. The Mac Band Featuring The McCampbell Brothers seemed very aware of this fact in their 1988 one hit wonder song Roses Are Red. Sadly what they weren't aware of is that to sell songs,

        24/08/14
        Ever So Lonely is what Monsoon were in 1982. Maybe they weren't trying hard enough to encourage other people to join them. Maybe their performances were so bad that they were left on-stage all alone as the audience walked off. What they needed was some gimmick to get people to join them, the

        23/08/14
        Another remix for those British boys The Beatles. This time for their 1963 song I Saw Her Standing There. On the original cover we see the fab four but where is her, the her that should be standing there? Thankfully the remix of the cover identifies her. Her is standing there, and her is, it wou

      • What Would You Do - City High
        22/08/14
        What Would You Do? That is the question being posed by City High. But in order to be able to answer that question, it is necessary that we understand the situation we find ourselves in. The original cover gives nothing with which to work. The remix paints a very different picture. We find oursel

      • Dancing Queen - ABBA
        21/08/14
        Another remix for those Swedish songsters ABBA. This time it's the turn of that cheesy party classic, Dancing Queen. See that girl, watch that scene. But the only scene on the original cover of the single is one of the band members. Now whilst this might qualify for a silver star, only gold

      • Take Me Home (A Girl Like Me) - Sophie Ellis-Bextor
        20/08/14
        Whilst we in a vehicular mood, here's a remix for Take Me Home (A Girl Like Me) by Sophie Ellis-Bextor. The original cover has a nice picture of Ms Ellis-Bextor, but gives no indication of why we might want to take her home. The remix shows a girl who definitely should be taken home. Either

      • Leaving On A Jet Plane - Peter, Paul And Mary
        19/08/14
        This is turning into a bit of a transport-related week of single cover remixes here at AllBum.Art. We have now found Amarillo and are going to get there by Leaving On A Jet Plane. And we are being joined by Peter, Paul & Mary. But who is going to serve us a few tequilas? We need an air-hoste

      • Do You Know The Way To San Jose - Dionne Warwick
        18/08/14
        It seems that Tony Christie isn't the only one who is having problems trying to find their way around the country. Dionne Warwick seems equally lost as she asks Do You Know The Way To San Jose? Actually, we don't know either but we figured that a naked hitch-hiker (other than her rucksac

      • (Is This The Way To) Amarillo - Tony Christie
        17/08/14
        Is This The Way To Amarillo? Is that the way to Amarillo? What is the way to Amarillo? Tony Christie doesn't seem to know and although the original cover of the single shows Mr Christie doing his best to shout the question at the top of his voice, he clearly isn't getting an answer, or

      • Look Right Through - Storm Queen
        16/08/14
        Look Right Through by Storm Queen has a cover for its single that you could easily miss, look right through it if you will. A cover that is so lackluster that it might as well not be there. The remix is more striking, showing, as it does, a queen (well a princess anyhow) who is amidst a storm, as it

      • Bitter Sweet Symphony - The Verve
        15/08/14
        Who could forget? Who could remember? Who could remember to forget? Who could forget to remember? It has to be said. It does, you know. The original cover for Bitter Sweet Symphony by The Verve is boring beyond belief. Thank goodness for AllBum.Art and our superb remix of this classic song.

      • Bang Bang - will.i.am
        14/08/14
        Hmm... Bang, Bang. Hmm... will.i.am. Now what would you expect to see on the cover of a song with bang in the title? A gun maybe? Well OK, there is a silhouette of a gun on the original cover. But an R&B track requires more than just that, it requires a hot babe. So enter the remix, replete

      • Cars And Girls - Prefab Sprout
        13/08/14
        Presumably with a band called Prefab Sprout, the cover of any of their songs does not need to make any sense either. But the cover of Cars And Girls shows a matchstick playing a guitar. No sense at all. What would make sense would be something to do with cars, and perhaps something to do with gir

      • One Step Further - Bardo
        12/08/14
        One Step Further was apparently the 1982 United Kingdom entry for the Eurovision Song Contest. This remix of the Bardo song cover was sent in by Andy Hill of Weston-Super-Mare, England. He says:I always had a thing at school for the singer, Sally Ann Triplett but she is getting on now so I figured

      • Mama Told Me Not To Come - Tom Jones And Stereophonics
        11/08/14
        Mama Told Me Not To Come. That is what Tom Jones And Stereophonics tell us. But why is it that Mama was so vehemently against us going along? The remix of the cover of the single tells the story. It's Mama herself. She is clearly planning something that she didn't want you to see. Ex

      • So You Win Again - Hot Chocolate
        10/08/14
        So You Win Again, eh? That is what Hot Chocolate tell us. But they give no indication of who has won, why they have won, what it is that they have won, or, especially, why they should be so successful to win more than once. Thankfully the remix of the cover artwork makes this perfectly clear. It

      • Modern Girl - Sheena Easton
        09/08/14
        Modern Girl by Sheena Easton is one of those songs that misses the point completely. Whilst the picture of Ms Easton that graces the original cover may have been futuristic to those who prepared the artwork way back in 1980, it certainly isn't futuristic today. So instead of the heavily made-

      • In The Year 2525 - Zager And Evans
        08/08/14
        What do you expect the world to look like In The Year 2525? Well according to Zager And Evans, it looks like a swirly lava-lamp which is what the makers of Star Trek often used to think the future would look like as well. Maybe in 1969 lava-lamps were seen as the future. But in the 2010s, the fut

      • Sadnecessary - Milky Chance
        07/08/14
        Sadnecessary - surely there is a space missing. And the cover of this Milky Chance album is also missing something. Any sign of any milk; anything sad; or anything necessary. Good job that we here at AllBum.Art are here to provide you with our poor quality, low-brow remixes. In the remix we see

      • Happy - Pharrell Williams
        06/08/14
        If you're Happy and you know it then clap along with Pharrell Williams to this uber-annoying song with little or no artistic fladulation. On the original cover we see Mr Williams though he is not looking particularly happy as he appears to be either doing an impression of an aeroplane, or balan

      • Keep On Running - The Spencer Davis Group
        05/08/14
        You know what? The original cover to Keep On Running by The Spencer Davis Group scores full marks on the AllBum.Art score sheet. It features the band and illustrates the title of the song, as they are running. So from that point of view there's almost no reason to provide a remix. Except t

      • On The Ropes - The Wonder Stuff
        04/08/14
        On The Ropes was a single by The Wonder Stuff. That much is obvious. But what would you expect to see on the cover of their single? Maybe a picture of the band? Wrong, try again. What about someone in a boxing ring? We see where you're going there but no, wrong? The answer is simple, a y

      • Street Life - The Crusaders
        03/08/14
        Never heard of The Crusaders? Nor had we so we did some research and found out that they were christian soldiers who roamed Europe in the middle ages. Odd then, that they should have a hit in 1979 with Street Life. Oh, we just realized there is a second entry on Wikipedia for The Crusaders and th

      • Empty Rooms - Gary Moore
        02/08/14
        Here we are again with another remix for Mr Gary Moore. This time it's his solo single, which is less rock and less roll, but more drone and more drole - Empty Rooms. But wouldn't you believe it, the room is not empty. How do we know this? Because a second photo, taken just after the o

      • Out In The Fields - Gary Moore And Phil Lynott
        01/08/14
        Time for a bit of heavy metal as August is here. What's the connection - why none at all, we just fancied a bit of hard rock. Here we see Gary Moore And Phil Lynott posing on the front of their single Out In The Fields. But where are the fields, and who is out there? From their outfits, 18t

      • Money On My Mind - Sam Smith
        31/07/14
        Money On My Mind, that's what is apparently going through the head of Sam Smith. But you wouldn't know this by looking at the cover of his single. Instead you would think that some kind of impressionist art was on his mind. Let's help you out Mr Smith, when you have money on your m

      • Groovin' - The Young Rascals
        30/07/14
        The Young Rascals would have us all a-Groovin' and a-moovin' no doubt if they could, in their wacky way. How do we know they groove in a wacky way, well the cover of their single suggests this as the band members sprawl around in a myriad of elevations and angles. The remix shows a bunch

      • You Should Be Dancing - Bee Gees
        29/07/14
        What you doin' in your pants? That's the question that the Bee Gees ask in this 1976 single You Should Be Dancing. Now the question that needs asking of this question is, do they mean what is it that it is that you are doing in your pants, or do they mean why on earth are you wearing pan

      • Slow Hand - Pointer Sisters
        28/07/14
        I need a lover with a Slow Hand. I need a lover with an Easy Touch. Is that so? Well the cover of this Pointer Sisters single doesn't indicate what the slow hand is needed for, or why an easy touch is essential. The remix, on the other hand, does! We can see two girls, or 'sisters

      • Reunited - Peaches And Herb
        27/07/14
        Aah, the soulful tones of Peaches And Herb tell of how they want to be Reunited. But to all intents and purposes, the cover of their single shows a couple that seem as if they were never parted. United, probably. Reunited, maybe questionably. The remix has some of this contretemps (to use a posh

      • Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' - Michael Jackson
        26/07/14
        Our recent theme of requited lust continues with today's remix of Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' by none other than Michael Jackson. The original cover sees the eponymous Mr Jackson standing. What is it he wants to start? Why does he want to start it? Who does he want to start it wit

      • Do You Want It Right Now - Degrees Of Motion
        25/07/14
        Following on from yesterday's theme of relationships that probably shouldn't be, today we have a remix of Do You Want It Right Now by Degrees Of Motion. The original cover gives absolutely no indication of what the song is about. None at all. The remix places us in a mighty difficult si

      • Ever Fallen In Love With Someone (You Shouldn't've) - The Buzzcocks
        24/07/14
        1970s pre-apocolyptic punk group The Buzzcocks are trying to issue a cautionary tale in their single Ever Fallen In Love With Someone (You Shouldn't've). What they are trying to say is be careful. It can be easy to be led astray. Sadly the cover of their single does not help us to pictu

      • Ain't No Sunshine - Bill Withers
        23/07/14
        Ain't No Sunshine according to Bill Withers. But he could have fooled us, as there he sits on the porch of a house and it's not dark. Now of course, there could be floodlights but the quality of light suggests that it is being lit naturally (or so says our lighting guru Ian here at AllBu

      • Frozen - Madonna
        22/07/14
        Tired of all these sunny summer songs, well here's something to cool you right down. Frozen was a hit for Madonna in the late 1990s. On the original cover we see Ms Ciccone but is she looking even slightly cold? No. Does she seem chilly? No. Even a little tepid? Maybe. Thankfully the re

      • Mysterious Girl - Peter Andre Featuring Bubbler Ranx
        21/07/14
        We always like user submitted material here at AllBum.Art, so we were particularly delighted to get this entry from Digger Possum of Australia. Apparently Peter Andre is a big star 'down under' and his single Mysterious Girl is his biggest hit to date. Digger says:Fair dinkum Allbum chuc

      • Soul Limbo - Booker T And The MG's
        20/07/14
        Hmmm... What exactly are Booker T And The MG's up to on the cover of their 1969 single Soul Limbo? They are standing around on a beach, hidden under some pillars staring at a hot ebony babe in a white bikini. Just what are they expecting to happen next. And where's any accoutrements nec

      • At The River - Groove Armada
        19/07/14
        Of course not everyone can get to a beach in the summer. There are those who are so far inland that instead they rely on rivers and lakes to find a bit of outdoor liquid refreshment on a hot sunny day. At The River by Groove Armada is an odd combination in that the title is about rivers, but the s

      • You Are The Sunshine Of My Life - Stevie Wonder
        18/07/14
        You Are The Sunshine Of My Life, or so says Stevie Wonder. On the original cover for the single we see Mr Judkins smiling in his inimitable way, singing along into a microphone. But just who is he singing about, and why does she light up his life so. The remixed cover shows the answer. She is a

      • Summer Paradise - Simple Plan Featuring Sean Paul
        17/07/14
        We are willing to give the artist that prepared the artwork for Summer Paradise by Simple Plan Feat. Sean Paul, a bronze star for their effort. They at least captured the feel of what a summer paradise might look like. They would have got a silver star if they had included a picture of the artists

      • Trippin' On Sunshine - Pizzaman
        16/07/14
        Oddly for such an obscure act, this is our second remix of the artwork for a single by Pizzaman - this time it's for Trippin' On Sunshine. As you can clearly see the original cover for the single is downright appalling. It shows nothing at all. Nix. Nil. Zero. Zilch. Our remix shows

      • Sex On The Beach - T-Spoon
        15/07/14

        If ever there were a song that was written for endless dodgy remixes it must be Sex On The Beach by T-Spoon. But not only have we provided you with one remix, but two! The original cover shows the band in true 1990s style, but (maybe because it was too risque even in the '90s) no indicat

      • Summer Of '69 - Bryan Adams
        14/07/14
        Which song better reflects the glory of summers gone than Summer Of '69 by Bryan Adams? Perhaps none. But the original cover of the single gives no indication of what the summer of that particular year might have looked like. Now there are obvious remixes of covers with the number sixty-nine

        13/07/14

        Wowser! Four remixes of the same cover. Whaaat! Yes, it's true, when we came to remix the cover of the single Sun Is Shining by Bob Marley Vs. Funkstar De Luxe, we got completely torn for choice over exactly what the remix should look like. And rather than us decide, we here at AllBum.A

      • Let The Sun Shine Thru - Richard F Featuring Samantha Stocks
        12/07/14
        A song so obscure that it doesn't even have a proper single cover, Let The Sun Shine Thru is an uplifting summer sound that deserves to be better known, even if Richard F Feat. Samantha Stocks remain locked away in the production studio. To help them, we have remixed the cover to let the sun t

        11/07/14
        We're very much enjoying our summer vacation and all of the remixes associated with it. As it is, we are lounging on the shore and who should walk past us but some sexy stranger. And of course, that is almost certainly what Mr Acker Bilk had in mind when he penned Stranger On The Shore. Unfo

        10/07/14
        Waking up in the morning. Sun shining. Water glistening. You just know it's going to be a Lovely Day, and what better song to get you going on such a day as this one by Bill Withers. Oddly, on the original cover we see Mr Withers amongst a menagerie of animals. Thankfully, on the remixed co

      • Shined On Me - Praise Cats Featuring Andrea Love
        09/07/14
        What could be more summery than having the sun shining down on your body. Well although Shined On Me by Praise Cats Feat. Andrea Love sums up this sunny disposition well, the cover does not. It seems that someone is hiding behind a dark curtain. Hardly very shiny. Thank goodness for the remixed c

      • Beach Baby - The First Class
        08/07/14
        Do you remember back in old L.A.? Apparently The First Class do in their 1970s song Beach Baby which very much mimics the style of the Beach Boys. But oddly, the band are from England so how they know about 'all American babes' is not clear. Neither is the cover which looks suspiciously

      • Hot Fun In The Summertime - Sly And The Family Stone
        07/07/14
        We're still in a sunny mood, remixing covers of those 'summer sizzlers' that are made for beaches, pools, lakes and anywhere that a bikini is the right thing to wear. Here we have Sly And The Family Stone with their 1969 song Hot Fun In The Summertime. It's not clear why there

      • Walking On Sunshine - Katrina And The Waves
        06/07/14
        What were Katrina And The Waves thinking when they put together the cover for their summer classic Walking On Sunshine? Of course, what could be more reminiscent of the sunshine than a black and white picture of the band members looking blankly at each other. Oddly, we couldn't decide what to

      • Summertime Blues - Eddie Cochran
        05/07/14
        There ain't no cure for the Summertime Blues, at least according to Eddie Cochran there ain't. But that might be because Mr Cochran chooses to ignore what is going on behind him. As he stares forlornly into the distance, guitar in his hand, it seems he has completely neglected to notice

        04/07/14
        Hey, it's the 4th of July, so what could be more patriotic than to remix the cover of a single that has USA in the title. Party In The U.S.A. was a 2009 hit for Miley Cyrus, who at the time was just breaking out of her Disney inspired cutesy phase and becoming an irksome teen. Now she is know

        03/07/14
        We are definitely in a summer groove with songs of yesteryear that invoke sunshine. Yesterday we suggested that summer days were lazy which prompted us to remix this classic by Nat King Cole. On the original cover of Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days Of Summer, we see Mr Cole in a suit. On the remix we

        02/07/14
        Whilst we are in the mood for summer croonin', here's a remix of another summer classic. Beyond The Sea by Bobby Darin is another of those songs that gets you in the mood for those lazy days of summer. The original cover shows Mr Darin wearing a high neck sweater, not normally the kind o

        01/07/14
        Though this song was in the charts before any of us here at AllBum.Art were born, it still does a great job of instilling a summery vibe. Here Comes Summer by Jerry Keller is just the kind of song you need on the radio on a sunny day at the beginning of the summer to get you in the mood for the day

        30/06/14
        Yet another remix of artwork for a Madonna single. As we're in a summer mood, we are remixing La Isla Bonita. In the original cover we see Ms Ciccone in a hat. Presumably the hat is meant to signify the latin nature of the song. But La Isla Bonita means the beautiful island and to us, that

        29/06/14
        It's great to be here on holiday but what is the weather forecast? According to local weather forecaster Michael Bublé It's A Beautiful Day. That sentiment is not reflected in the cover for the single though, as all we can see is the aforementioned Mr Bublé in a shirt, tie and leather

        28/06/14
        Leaving the beach temporarily, we find ourselves back at the hotel, and wouldn't you know it, there are folk Twisting By The Pool listening to Dire Straits. Sadly, when they made the cover for the single, the band forgot the cardinal rule, which is to at least put something on the cover that i

        With all those boys down on the beach, it is any wonder that we find the babes lining up to join them? Here we find Sabrina singing about Boys (Summertime Love) and on the original cover, a raunchy picture of Ms Salerno. In the remix we see the self-same Ms Salerno but this time in an even more ra

        26/06/14
        So who else is down on the beach? None other than the Boys Of Summer, at least that is the case according to Don Henley. On the original cover of the summer classic single we see Mr Henley looking rather sad. In the remix, the boys of summer are out on the beach and would you know it, all their c

        25/06/14
        We made it, summer is here and we're On The Beach with Cliff Richard, the English Elvis, as English people apparently dubbed him. On the original cover we see Mr Richard whose head seems oddly dispositioned dancing on the beach with a babe of the era. In the remix we focus more on the beach b

        So here we are, on our way to the beach flying on a Groovejet when the pilot comes on the tannoy to announce the weather at the destination. Is it warm and sunny? No. Is it hot and sticky?

        Yes, summer is now officially here and let's hope it's a Long Hot Summer which is what The Style Council hoped it would be. The original single cover shows them sitting around on a wall in Paris on a sticky summer day. The remix shows a feisty French babe wearing nothing but high heels a

        20/06/14
        Not satisfied with telling Annie that he couldn't possibly be her father because she was too ugly, Kid Creole And The Coconuts are now discussing The Sex Of It. In the original cover we see nothing to indicate what 'it' is and what its sex might be. In the remix we see a topless bab

        16/06/14
        Ah yes, the song made infamous by the misguided miming of a million drag artists, One Day I'll Fly Away was probably one of the biggest hits of Randy Crawford. The original cover shows a happy, smiling Ms Crawford which in one way is good (it shows the artist) but in another doesn't reall

        Wishing On A Star is both a 1978 single by Rose Royce and a 1993 album of their greatest hits (which not surprisingly includes the eponymous single). The original cover shows a star which is what we are wishing on, but it lacks a certain certainty about whether it is certain that the wish will succ

        When Champaign sang How 'Bout Us, they forgot on important thing... when you make the cover for the single, don't use a picture of a pair of shoes. What on earth does that say about us? Maybe they had drunk too much champaign[sic]. Thankfully the remix really does ask the question how &

        Fans of Satan's Cheerleaders will already be aware that their songs are not normally about cheerleaders.

        S Club 7 sang Never Had A Dream Come True back in 2000. And it's easy to see why. On the cover of the single, the band seem to be lounging around doing very little rather than getting up of their butts and going to find the dream they so desperately seek. We have made it easier for you by in

      • Everybody's Changing - Keane
        11/06/14
        It seems that when putting the original artwork for the cover of their single Everybody's Changing together, British band Keane thought that the best way to symbolize people changing was to show a telegraph post at a jaunty angle. No, no, no! The best way to symbolize changing is to show two

      • I Don't Feel Like Dancin' - Scissor Sisters
        10/06/14
        Though we whole-heartedly endorse the idea that the Scissor Sisters should use, as their logo, a pair of scissors wearing high heels, it does leave the cover of I Don't Feel Like Dancin' with many unanswered questions, such as what it is about the use of scissors that is inhibiting the dan

      • It Started With A Kiss - Hot Chocolate Featuring Errol Brown
        09/06/14
        We at AllBum.Art try to respond to comment and criticism and do get the occasional message saying that we focus far too much on producing remixes of artwork that use hot young babes and that we should use pictures of older women and not be so ageist. The past couple of days remixes have responded t

      • Sit Down - James
        08/06/14
        Following on from yesterday's decision as to whether you Shoulda Woulda Coulda hit it off with an older lady, today you find yourself in the unfortunate position of discovering that she is a cuckoo short of a Swiss wall clock and rather than getting away with some older woman action, you find s

      • Shoulda Woulda Coulda - Beverley Knight
        07/06/14
        So there you are, minding your own business, when an older woman approaches you and makes it very clear that she is interested in more than just chatting with you. How she makes this clear is by revealing that, with the drop of a floral dressing gown she would be naked. What do you do? Do you go

      • I'm In Heaven - Jason Nevins Presents U.K.N.Y. Featuring Holly James
        06/06/14
        Isn't it great when artists co-operate on a single. Maybe. But then again when the name of the artist becomes Jason Nevins Presents U.K.N.Y. Feat. Holly James, perhaps that's a bit too much co-operation. The original cover of I'm In Heaven shows Holly James in a purple hue. Nice.

      • Doop - Doop
        05/06/14
        This remix of Doop by Doop is just a thinly veiled excuse to use a picture of a thinly veiled pin-up babe. Beyond that there's not much to add except to say, 'doop doop deeby dabby doo-doo-doop' ad nauseum until such time as the song is so deeply engraved in your brain that the only

      • My Girl - Otis Redding
        04/06/14
        Today we're talkin' 'bout My Girl, by Otis Redding. Red, they say, is the color of passion, which is probably why Mr Redding is pictured against a red background. Either that, or whoever designed the cover of the single recognized the connection between red and Mr Redding's nam

      • Take Your Shoes Off - The Cheeky Girls
        03/06/14
        Two consecutive days of remixes of The Cheeky Girls' covers! Think yourself lucky that we are not having a whole week of them. This is the remix for Take Your Shoes Off. In the original cover we see the girls themselves standing by a jukebox. Why and what this has to do with the song is lost

      • Cheeky Song (Touch My Bum) - The Cheeky Girls
        02/06/14
        Not the first remix of a song by The Cheeky Girls, nor will it be the last as we have another one tomorrow (don't ask why). The good thing about these crazy Romanian girls is that they provide the material for the remix of their own songs. In the original cover of Cheeky Song (Touch My Bum) w

      • The Love I Lost - Harold Melvin And The Blue Notes
        01/06/14
        Another fanmade entry, this time from Jackson Penge of North Carolina. Jackson says that although the picture on the original cover of The Love I Lost by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes shows the band singing, it isn't blue and it is not evident who the lost lover is. He says of his remix

    • May
      • Shopping - Pet Shop Boys
        31/05/14
        Nice to get an entry submitted by one of our readers. We will let Tallie Hough of Sunderland, England take up the story:Though this song by the Pet Shop Boys was never released as a single in its own right, I felt it was deserving of a remix of its own. So the original cover for Shopping is not ac

      • Happiness - Pizzaman
        30/05/14
        Happiness is what Pizzaman brings. Well there's no lie there. Most deliveries of pizza by a pizzaman will bring happiness, cheese covered, tomato sauce laden, thick crust happiness. The original cover artwork though shows none of this high-calorie happiness, but instead focuses on some abstr

      • Blue Hat For A Blue Day - Nick Heyward
        29/05/14
        A Blue Hat For A Blue Day, is apparently what singer Nick Heyward recommends. How odd, then, that the original cover of Mr Heyward's single, though showing the singer himself, does not provide us with any purview of how blue the day is, what shade of blue the hat is, or who, indeed, is wearing

      • Run Till U Shine - Andrew Bennett Featuring Sir Adrian
        28/05/14
        Run Till U Shine. What does that mean exactly? Unfortunately, the original single cover of this track by Andrew Bennett Feat. Sir Adrian does not help at all. A cartoon angel, sitting on a cartoon cloud, wearing cartoon headphones and clicking his/her fingers to the music. Great. But where'

      • Strings Of Life (Stronger On My Own) - Soul Central Featuring Kathy Brown
        27/05/14
        The original single cover artwork for Strings Of Life (Stronger On My Own) by Soul Central Feat. Kathy Brown shows what exactly? The nose and lips of who? Maybe it's Kathy Brown but this is not clear. It is also not clear how the strings are to make things stronger. Thankfully, we at AllBum

      • Who Dat Girl - Flo Rida Featuring Akon
        26/05/14
        Yo, yo, yo! Flo Rida to the A to the K to the O to the N. OK, so we should steer away from the whole rap thing. But not remixing covers. The original cover of Who Dat Girl shows Flo Rida sitting on a chair but no sign of Akon. Odd that. Also, there's no indication of 'who dat girl

      • Leap Up And Down (Wave Your Knickers In The Air) - St. Cecelia
        25/05/14
        News arrives at the AllBum.Art headquarters from Alan Preston of Macclesfield, England of a revival of an old 1970s song. Leap Up And Down by St Cecelia was apparently banned from radio in England when it was first released but is having a new lease of life as a summer party song. We can see why a

      • Dish Of The Day - Fool's Garden
        24/05/14
        What must Fool's Garden have been thinking when they sat down to work out what images to put on the front cover of their album Dish Of The Day? One thing that is for certain, is that they were not thinking very literally. A hand-drawn fish is not dishy, just fishy! The remix is dishy, and sh

      • Just One Look - The Hollies
        23/05/14
        The original cover for Just One Look by The Hollies scores on only one of the criteria that make for a great piece of album artwork. That is - it features a picture of the band. But what is it that they are looking at? And why is one look all that is needed? The remix does away with the band but

      • Sledgehammer - Peter Gabriel
        22/05/14
        Who could forget Peter Gabriel's iconic video for Sledgehammer. One of the first plasticine based cartoons of our era. So it is odd that the original single artwork does not reflect this icon-o-plastic theme. To be fair, neither does the remix. Instead we see one chick about to hit another

      • Family Affair - Sly And The Family Stone
        21/05/14
        A Family Affair - dangerous thing - brothers and sisters, mothers and sons, all very incestuous and nepotistic. None of these issues is truly reflected on the original cover of the single. In the remix we see two sisters who are clearly interested in each other in a way that extends to wanting to s

      • Sailing - Rod Stewart
        20/05/14
        Sailing. Conjures up images of long lazy days in the sun with hot babes dancing around the decks, doesn't it. Well apparently in 1975 for Rod Stewart it did not. Instead it conjured up images of Mr Stewart leaning against a brown paper bag. Good job for remixes so that we can correct the ima

      • Sunshine On A Rainy Day - Zoë
        19/05/14
        Sunshine On A Rainy Day. What would that look like. In most likelihood, there would be a rainbow involved, but that's not how we roll at AllBum.Art. Instead we prefer to be cheered up on a rainy day not by a picture of Zoe, or of a rainbow, but of a hot naked chick getting soaked to the skin

      • Everybody Everybody - Black Box
        18/05/14
        Wasn't it some children's TV program that began with the poem, 'Everybody, Verybody, Erybody, Rybody, Ybody, Body, Ody, Dy, Y'? Whoever wrote that poem might have been listening to Everybody Everybody by Black Box. But what they wouldn't have done is learned who everybody

      • Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain - Willie Nelson
        17/05/14
        What would you expect to see on the cover of a single if its title is Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain. For one, blue eyes, and Willie Nelson does not disappoint in this respect. What about some rain? No, none of that. And crying? That neither. But moving from Tennessee to Tokyo can fix all that,

      • Rain On Me - Ashanti
        16/05/14
        The original cover of Ashanti's 2003 single Rain On Me is what we at AllBum.Art would refer to as a 'denizen of deleted dealies', meaning, in particular, that it misses one totally critical dealy, that being any suggestion of rain. Thankfully such omissions are easily dealt with and

      • Summer Night City - ABBA
        15/05/14
        Not the first remix for Swedish songsters ABBA, Summer Night City follows the story of four 1970s pop stars who smile a lot and have problems closing their lips when they have their pictures taken, have too much facial hair, long hairstyles and some of whom wear red hoods in the daytime. What? Tha

      • The Lady In Red - Chris De Burgh
        14/05/14
        It's been a while since we brought you a triple-whammy remix, but this overplayed 1980s song by Chris De Burgh both deserved, and badly needed it. The premise for our remixes of the cover artwork for The Lady In Red is simple. Replace the badly drawn splodge of a picture on the original cover

      • Price Tag - Jessie J Featuring B.o.B.
        13/05/14
        It's amazing what money can buy. Here we were thinking that the Price Tag referred to by Jessie J Featuring B.o.B. in their 2011 single was to do with ordinary household items like washing machines and stoves, but it turns out, if the remix of the cover of the single is to be believed, that pr

      • Stop! In The Name Of Love - The Supremes
        12/05/14
        Stop! In The Name Of Love... That is what we were instructed to do by The Supremes. But would you believe it, the boy in the remixed cover has never heard the song. He is playing away from home and is in the process of getting drunk and undressing a much older lady. Back home, his sexy young girl

      • Sweet Soul Music - Arthur Conley
        11/05/14
        Tho' we're certain that such things do not happen to everyone, here at AllBum.Art we sometimes find a picture that is both worthy of inclusion in a remix, yet fits no obvious song title. The picture used on the remix of Arthur Conley's soul classic Sweet Soul Music fits this bill pre

      • Piano In The Dark - Brenda Russell
        10/05/14
        Piano In The Dark, by Brenda Russell. Where do we begin? Let's start with the aforementioned piano - there isn't one. And what about the general lighting on the water-color styled picture on the front of the original single cover - it's certainly not dark. Thank goodness that we he

      • Nightswimming - R.E.M.
        09/05/14
        There is so little to say about Nightswimming by R.E.M. that instead of describe the flaws of the original cover and the oh, so, obvious replacement that is on the remix, we are just going to hum along with the song whilst it plays in the background. Mmmmm mmmm mmmmmm mm mm mmmmm mmm mmmmm mmm mmmm

      • Party For Two - Shania Twain With Mark McGrath
        08/05/14
        Party For Two was a 2004 hit for Shania Twain With Marc McGrath. But what a sorry story the cover of the single tells. It's just a picture of Ms Twain. No Party. And no Two. The remix tells a different story as there is definitely a party going on, and for three. Or is the party just for

      • Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves - Eurythmics And Aretha Franklin
        07/05/14
        Now here's a thorny issue. What exactly is 'It' that Sisters Are Doin' For Themselves? According to Eurythmics And Aretha Franklin it could be a variety of things, but the cover of the original single doesn't help much, unless the answer to the question is typing. But tha

      • Summertime - Ella Fitzgerald And Louis Armstrong
        06/05/14
        What would summer be without Summertime appearing on the radio at some point or other? Depending on whether you listen to Hot [insert number] or Easy [insert different number] will determine which version you hear but this classic from 1957 by Ella Fitzgerald And Louis Armstrong transcends radio fo

      • Red Dress - Alvin Stardust
        05/05/14
        We had never heard of Alvin Stardust either until we received this submission from Tony Peterson of Birmingham, England. Tony tells us that he was inspired by our remix of Red Dress by another British band, the Sugababes. This is a remix of Mr Stardust's 1974 single of the same name of which

      • Should I Stay Or Should I Go - The Clash
        04/05/14
        Should I Stay Or Should I Go now? was the question asked by British punk rockers The Clash in this single from 1982. They go on to add, 'if I stay there will be trouble, if I go it will be double'. The original cover gives no indication of what is causing the band such a dilemma. The re

      • Music To Watch Girls By - Andy Williams
        03/05/14
        Andy Williams has many songs whose titles entitle them to a remix under the hands of AllBum.Art but for now we will content ourselves with Music To Watch Girls By. The remix is based on a very simple premise... when this song plays on your iPod* you need to be able to see some girls to watch going

      • Lonely Boy - Andrew Gold
        02/05/14
        The second remix in as many weeks for Andrew Gold. But what do we have here? In the original cover, we see Mr Gold sitting looking lonely in a lonely-looking room. But lo! see what is actually behind him. If he would only stop being so melancholy and turn around, he would see that he is not alon

      • Hooray, Hooray, It's A Holi-Holiday - Boney M
        01/05/14
        Two remixes in a row for seventies songsters Boney M. This time it's their 1979 hit, Hooray, Hooray, It's A Holi-Holiday. The original cover sees the band members walking down an otherwise deserted beach enjoying their holi-holiday. The remix shows the kind of thing that we would like t

      • Sunny - Boney M
        30/04/14
        Sunny by Boney M. What images does this conjure up for you? Is it:
        (a) The band standing around in a photo studio against a red backdrop. Or
        (b) A hot chick on a sunny beach wearing naught but a scarf and high heels?
        For Boney M, it's clearly the former as that is what is sho

      • This Old Heart Of Mine (Is Weak For You) - The Isley Brothers
        29/04/14
        What picture did The Isley Brothers choose to feature on the original cover of their single This Old Heart Of Mine? Oddly, a couple on a beach sitting around holding a beach ball. In the remix all we have done is wound on the story an hour or so to the point where all their clothes have fallen off

      • Paper Roses - Marie Osmond
        28/04/14
        Ah, how sweet the picture of Marie Osmond on the cover of her 1973 single Paper Roses sandwiched, as she is, between her name and the title of the song, and some rather scrappy looking pink paper roses. Actually, as far as the AllBum.Art scoring system goes, this cover gets full marks as it include

      • Feeling Good - Michael Bublé
        27/04/14
        There is always a perfect time to remix the cover of any Michael Bublé single and when that single is called Feeling Good, the time can never be soon enough. Our Canadian friend's apparent desire to be called Boob-lay instead of the more or less accurate Bubb-le opens him up for many boob bas

      • #SELFIE - The Chainsmokers
        26/04/14
        Of the many obvious and oblivious pictures that could have been chosen to remix the totally dull original cover of The Chainsmokers single #SELFIE, the one that now graces the remixed cover artwork has to be the best. It's a hot babe, wearing headphones, in a bikini, taking a picture of hersel

      • Push Up On Me - Rihanna
        25/04/14
        Yet another remix for Rihanna (or Ms Fenty as we like to call her), Push Up On Me comes from her 2008 album Good Girl Gone Bad which deserves a remix of its own one day. Push Up On Me is missing one important thing in its original format, and that is something to push up. This either has to be an e

      • A Juicy Red Apple - Skin Up
        24/04/14
        Another AllBum.Art remix inspired by a picture rather than a song. After all, what would you do with a picture of a cute babe holding a juicy red apple in her hand other than find a song with a suitable title and remix the cover! And here is A Juicy Red Apple by Skin Up, the original cover for whi

      • Caught Out There - Kelis
        23/04/14
        Caught Out There by Kelis was one of Ms Rogers' first singles and the cover seems equally rough around the edges, even if the music wasn't. In the original we see Ms Rogers doing nothing in particular, with no indication of what or who was caught and where 'there' is or was. Th

      • Never Let Her Slip Away - Andrew Gold
        22/04/14
        The title of Andrew Gold's 1978 single Never Let Her Slip Away has a double meaning (or at least it does to us). On the one hand, it could suggest that one should not let 'her' get away from you. On the other hand, it could mean that you should ensure that she always wears her '

      • Bad Case of Loving You (Doctor, Doctor) - Robert Palmer
        21/04/14
        Doctor, doctor, gimme the news, I got a Bad Case Of Loving You is what Robert Palmer tells us in this classic rock track of 1979. The cover of the single indicates the medical connection with its picture of a stethoscope (yes, we spelled that correctly without a dictionary, boo-ya!) The remix focus

      • Touch Me - 49ers
        20/04/14
        What have we here? A remix of an early house music track of the late 1980s. The original cover of Touch Me by 49ers reveals what we can only presume is the singer of the band, stretching out invitingly but with no indication of what, where or when we should commence the touching. The remix moves

      • Don't Marry Her - The Beautiful South
        19/04/14
        When looking for a picture for the Bruno Mars song Marry You, we came across a lot of pretty brides that deserved a place on the cover of a single. And hence this remix of Don't Marry Her by The Beautiful South was conceived. The remix shows exactly the kind of girl you shouldn't marry -

        18/04/14
        It's always good to receive a user submitted 'fanmade' entry. This one by The Matchroom Mob With Chas & Dave comes from Steve Virgo of Liverpool, England who says:Snooker Loopy nuts are we is how the song goes, but who or what is nuts? On the remix I have put a sexy babe on the

      • Marry You - Bruno Mars
        17/04/14
        Bringing it right back up-to-date (well almost), comes this remix of the Bruno Mars song Marry You. The original cover has the obligatory diamond rings but no sign of Mr Hernandez or any indication of who the 'you' is that he is crooning about. In the remix we see that the girl he is int

      • The Blitzkreig Bop - Ramones
        16/04/14
        Hey ho, let's go, with a remix from NYC punk rockers the Ramones. The Blitzkreig Bop was their first single and the cover shows a lack of depth that comes with such immaturity. That said, we at AllBum.Art have our immature moments too and when we found pictures of a babe flashing her busty bo

      • Mellow Yellow - Donovan
        15/04/14
        They call me Mellow Yellow, or at least that is what Donovan famously told us in this classic hit of the 1960s. And to give Mr Leitch his credit, the cover gives us a good idea of the lady, called Saffron, about who he is singing. All we have done is update the cover to show a modern-day Saffron a

      • Tied Up Too Tight - Hard-Fi
        14/04/14
        You have to sigh a little when a band (in this case Hard-Fi) release a single called Tied Up Too Tight and on the cover have nothing other than a dirty van on it. What a missed opportunity for mayhem, an opportunity that we at AllBum.Art are not going to turn down. Open up the doors to that van an

      • International Rescue - Fuzzbox
        13/04/14
        A song about the Thunderbirds, that wasn't in any way connected with the original series or the later movie might seem an odd theme for a song. International Rescue by Fuzzbox is such a song and the cover scores very highly in that it features a member of the band in an outfit that would befit

      • Hey, Good Lookin' - Hank Williams
        12/04/14
        Hey, Good Lookin' may be a single released by Hank Williams in 1951 but can still be heard on many a mid-west radio station and in karaoke bars across the nation to this day. This is because the title produces images of a good lookin' woman, and such images are timeless. Sadly the origin

      • The Phantom Of The Opera - Various Artists
        11/04/14
        We had an email from Timothy Blenkinsop-Smithe of Olde England who said:Your web-site is replete with alternative artwork for very low-brow songs that should be in the gutter. You need to add some high-brow content to your site through classical music and opera.

      • Bikini Girls With Machine Guns - The Cramps
        10/04/14
        When we said that yesterday's remix of the Gym Class Heroes song Clothes Off had cover art that was gagging for a remix, we hadn't spotted the song Bikini Girls With Machine Guns by The Cramps. This song goes on the 'needs a remix' list too. That said, the original cover does v

      • Bathtime - Tindersticks
        09/04/14
        An obscure song by an obscure band, the remix of Bathtime by Tindersticks was sent in by Ian Fleetwood of Nottingham, England. There's nothing wrong with remixing the cover artwork for obscure songs, especially if the title lends itself to it. In the original cover we see what exactly? In th

      • Clothes Off - Gym Class Heroes
        08/04/14
        If ever there was a song whose title screamed for a remix of the cover it is Clothes Off!!! by Gym Class Heroes. The original cover shows the band eating popcorn (and in one case eating the box that the popcorn is in). What this has to do with the song's title is not explained. What is expla

      • Messing About On The River - Josh Macrae
        07/04/14
        An entry from the semi-eponymous Josh Macintosh of Scotland. Messing About On The River apparently tells the tale of heady summer days spent down by the banks of a river. The original cover of the Josh Macrae single shows a tranquil scene of 'punting' (apparently) but Josh reckons that t

      • Perfect Day - Duran Duran
        06/04/14
        Another submission from an apparently disgruntled Duran Duran fan (who wishes to remain anonymous) who was disgusted by the week of remixed covers that appeared previously on AllBum.Art. This one is, apparently, much classier. The original cover of Perfect Day shows an ice-cream sundae. The remix

      • Cool - Gwen Stefani
        05/04/14
        What do we learn from the original cover of Cool by Gwen Stefani? Very little. The picture of Ms Stefani is taken from the video for the song. And the title of the song is Cool. And it is in stereo with some kind of fidelity, whatever that means in an age of digitally delivered audio clarity. Th

      • Can You Feel It - The Jacksons
        04/04/14
        You may have noticed a theme over the past few days here at AllBum.Art - the theme being 'songs with the word Feel in the title'. Today's remix comes from The Jacksons and is the 1970s classic Can You Feel It. On the original cover we see The Jacksons but they look bored, and what i

      • Feel So Good - Mase
        03/04/14
        Following yesterday's track entitled 'Feel So Real', today's remix comes from rapper Mase (or should that be Ma$e) and is called Feel So Good. The theme of the remix is similar but in this case instead of feeling real but being false, it appears that what is being felt is probab

      • Feel So Real - Steve Arrington
        02/04/14
        Hmm... Now what is it that Steve Arrington could be singing about in his song Feel So Real? It cannot possibly be something that is actually real, because if it was, there would not be a need to declare that it feels real. By deduction, therefore, it must be something (or somethings) that is (are)

      • Fire Burning (The Dancefloor) - Sean Kingston
        01/04/14
        The original cover for Fire Burning (The Dancefloor) by Sean Kingston shows the silhouetted figures of several people boogying on down against a backdrop of a mirror ball and flames licking around their feet. Of course the big question here is what do those people in the silhouettes look like? The

      • Dancing In The Street - Martha Reeves & The Vandellas
        31/03/14
        Dancing In The Street. What could have been more outrageous in the 1960s than the suggestion from Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, that dancing anywhere other than in a dance hall was acceptable. Of course today anything can happen in the street, including dancing - but dancing with no clothes o

      • Walk On The Wild Side - Lou Reed
        30/03/14
        And all the colored girls go, 'doop-de-doop-de-doop'... Why they do this is not certain and even listening to the whole of this early 1970s song by Lou Reed adds very little certainty to that aspect. What it does add is some color around what a Walk On The Wild Side actually means. The r

      • Three Little Birds - Bob Marley And The Wailers
        29/03/14
        Bob Marley was famously quoted as saying, 'no woman, no crime'. In this song, Three Little Birds, he sings about how the arrival of three birds on his doorstep cheers him up. But the original cover has no woman. According to the urban dictionary, the term 'Bird' refers to a yo

      • Cover Me - Bruce Springsteen
        28/03/14
        An early hit for none other than Mr Bruce Springsteen, Cover Me was a hit before he became the rock legend that he is today. The earliness of the song is very much reflected in the cover of the single. This poor effort shows Mr Springsteen sitting on a car, which although it could be argued is in

      • On Bended Knee - Boyz II Men
        27/03/14
        Did they ever make it? Boyz II Men that is? Did they ever grow up enough to stop being called boyz and instead become men? If the cover of their 1994 single On Bended Knee is anything to go by, then who knows? More importantly, who cares? And so let's do away with the so-called boyz and fo

      • Hands Up (Give Me Your Heart) - Ottawan
        26/03/14
        Hands Up, baby hands up gimme your heart gimme gimme. That's how the chorus of this late charting disco track of 1981 by Ottawan goes. Oddly, despite their Canadian sounding name, the band are from France. Ooh la la! The cover shows the main singers a-boppin' to the tune. The remix sh

      • Run To You - Bryan Adams
        25/03/14
        Run To You was one of Canadian groover Bryan Adams' first singles. The original cover sees a moody Mr Adams staring out of the page. But there is no evidence of any running taking place. The truth is revealed in the remix as we see that whilst Mr Adams stands still, a hot babe is running tow

      • Union Of The Snake - Duran Duran
        24/03/14
        Following our featured artist week of Duran Duran remixes, this cover for the single Union Of The Snake was submitted by Kinki Westin (surely not a real name!) of England, who says:Your last Duran Duran remixes were rather vulgar and crude. Mine is classy, like the frame of a picture dabbed gregari

      • Purple Rain - Prince And The Revolution
        23/03/14
        As we draw to the end of our week of featured artist remixes, we drift away into a haze of evening mist, gently lit by the waning lunar disc and moistened by the most appalling thunder storm. Yes, that's what we think of when we hear Purple Rain by Prince And The Revolution. So just to make s

      • Raspberry Beret - Prince And The Revolution
        22/03/14
        We're almost at the end of our Prince featured artist week, and to ring in the weekend we give you a repeat prescription of hat related remixing. The original cover for Raspberry Beret shows a girl holding an apple wearing, guess what, a maroon colored hat. Both the remixes also have a girl we

      • Little Red Corvette - Prince
        21/03/14
        We continue our Prince featured artist week with this rexmix of Little Red Corvette. On the original cover we see Mr Nelson with his usual over-quiffy hairdo wearing a magenta latex jacket, but there's no sign of any Corvette of any nature. On the remix we see the Corvette in question. Thoug

      • U Got The Look - Prince
        20/03/14
        We continue our featured artist week with this remix of U Got The Look by our featured artist, Prince. In remixing this cover, we attempted to try and define what 'the look' is, so that the remix can ensure that 'the look' is still got. It seems that 'the look' is to

      • Let's Go Crazy - Prince And The Revolution
        19/03/14
        Another remix for this week's featured artist Prince, this time with The Revolution. Let's Go Crazy is a fun song that's great for getting you in the mood for a party. But in the original version we see a relatively sombre Mr Nelson on his motorcycle. Nothing particularly crazy is g

      • Kiss - Prince And The Revolution
        18/03/14
        The second of this week's featured artist remixes comes from Prince And The Revolution. The original cover of (ne-me-ne-me-ne-me-ne-me-ne) Kiss has a black and white Mr Nelson posing in a kind of male Bolero top looking about as masculine as Homer Simpson in a tutu. The remix shows a sexy bab

      • Prince And The New Power Generation - Cream
        17/03/14
        The start of another of AllBum.Art's featured artist week begins with this remix of Cream by Prince And The New Power Generation. Unquestionably one of the most obvious remixes that has ever been attempted. Instead of a photo of Mr Nelson standing in a highly sexualized position over a babe l

      • Feelin' Inside - Bobby Brown
        16/03/14
        Joyce Delmartin of Atlanta, GA claims to be 'a long time listener, first time caller' to AllBum.Art and has sent us his remix for Bobby Brown's 1997 single Feelin' Inside. The original cover shows a downbeat Mr Brown lolling around. The remix shows a babe in a pair of jeans who

      • Three Of A Perfect Pair - King Crimson
        15/03/14
        There is an obvious remix for any cover artwork for an album called Three Of A Perfect Pair, focusing, as would be expected, on the perfect pair analogy. But for this remix of the 1980s album by King Crimson, we have chosen a less beaten path and simply replaced the odd symbol with three babes, all

      • Mirror Mirror - Dollar
        14/03/14
        Mirror Mirror might be a line from the the De La Soul song Me, Myself and I, but this remix is for the obscure but equally reflective song by Dollar. The original cover scores very well in that it not only features the band themselves, but they are reflected in a mirror. The remix does away with t

      • Blue Moon - The Marcels
        13/03/14
        Blue Moon by The Marcels was a 1961 single for doo-woppers, The Marcels. It has been covered many times but no times as handsomely as in the remix of the single provided for you. On the original cover we see the band. How exciting. On the remix we see a group of sexy girl who have been entranced

      • Perfect - Fairground Attraction
        12/03/14
        Perfection is a difficult thing to achieve. Especially given that old saying, 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder'. In this case, the remix of Perfect by Fairground Attraction comes as close as we think is possible to perfection. Why? Well look at the remix. A beautiful babe in a stu

      • Titties and Beer - Frank Zappa
        11/03/14
        What song more deserves a decent cover than Frank Zappa's 1970s classic Titties and Beer. It hardly needs us to tell you what should be on the cover of this song, now does it. We won't even bother to describe the remix as it speaks for itself. All that we will say is that this is defini

      • Who Let The Dogs Out - Baha Men
        10/03/14
        A song sung by rowdy revelers at many a party, Who Let The Dogs Out by the Baha Men is a staple of sad sorority and fraternity discos the nation over. The original artwork shows the men from the Bahamas that gave the band its name. The remix shows a naked babe hugging a big dog. Presumably he has

      • Timber - Pitbull Featuring Ke$ha
        09/03/14
        'I'ts going down, I'm yelling Timber' might lead you to believe that this song is a remix of Monty Python's infamous Lumberjack song. But it isn't. Pitbull Featuring Ke$ha bring us this line-dancing inspired ditty that's brought up to date by babes dancing in tig

      • You Give Me Something - James Morrison
        08/03/14
        The original cover of British crooner James Morrison's single You Give Me Something speaks no volumes at all. Although Mr Morrison is present, there is no indication of who is giving him something, and what the thing is that is being given. In the remix this issue has been solved. The person

      • Black Widow - Lalo Schifrin
        07/03/14
        According to Wikipedia, Black Widow could mean many things, but the one we are interested in here is the 1970s album by Argentinian Lalo Schifrin. The cover remix here though refers exactly to that self same album. On the original cover we see a widow, in black, silhouetted against a shiny red back

      • I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - U2
        06/03/14
        I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For was a hit in 1987 for U2. Now although there is every chance that the guy on the front of the original cover has not found what it was that he was looking for, there is little to suggest that he has even bothered to take a look. On the remixed co

      • Touch The Sky - 29 Palms
        05/03/14
        A user submitted entry from Jert van Ricknick of Holland. Apparently Touch The Sky by 29 Palms was a big underground club hit in Holland. Jert takes up the story:De covver of de'riginal song has nice sea-sky color but no sign of many peepl's hands reach for de up-sky
        Or at least tha

      • Don't Stand So Close To Me - The Police
        04/03/14
        Don't Stand So Close to me by The Police is a song about a teacher getting too close to a pupil and all of the cultural taboos that risk getting broken. Not for us any of that nonsense. Instead we figured that if there was someone of a police based background that you would not want to stand t

      • Oral Fixation (Volume 2) - Shakira
        03/03/14
        Oh, dear. An album called Oral Fixation presents many options for remixing that would completely contravene the AllBum.Art submission guidelines! Having said that, Shakira points us in a direction that happily can involve a remix without guideline contravention. On the original cover we see Mr Ri

      • Relight My Fire - Dan Hartman
        02/03/14
        When Dan Hartman brought us Relight My Fire, he at least tried a bit with the cover of his single, which has fire on it and shows Mr Hartman. Now whilst Mr Hartman might have lit the fire of many a 70s babe, his visage doesn't really cut it in the 21st century. And so we have replaced Mr Hart

      • Runaway - Bon Jovi
        01/03/14
        There is a story here to Bon Jovi's single Runaway. In the original cover we see Mr Bongiovi standing on a darkened city street with very frizzy hair. Standing behind him is what must be the runaway mentioned in the song, who also has frizzy hair but seems to be wearing little more than high

    • March
      • Rhinestone Cowboy - Glen Campbell
        28/02/14
        Following on from yesterday's all-American classic, we bring you another in the form of Rhinestone Cowboy by Glen Campbell. The original cover shows Mr Campbell wearing a cowboy outfit bedecked by rhinestones which is a big thumbs-up when it comes to covers reflecting the songs they are coveri

      • Jack & Diane - John Cougar
        27/02/14
        This little ditty about Jack And Diane was brought to us in the early 1980s by John Cougar also known as John Cougar Mellencamp. It was Mr Mellencamp's full name that gave the idea for the remix. So who were Jack and Diane? In the remixed cover we can see thatAll clear? Bounding!

      • It Takes Two - Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock
        26/02/14
        It Takes Two by Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock is one of those songs you either love or hate, there's very little grey area in-between. The original cover shows us Mr Base and Mr Rock in a typical hip-hop pose. In this respect, it is not a bad cover at all, satisfying the main criteria for a good

      • Boston Tea Party - Arthur Fiedler And The Boston Pops Orchestra
        25/02/14
        Don't ever say that we don't not bring you the worst of the best of the worst here at AllBum.Art. This isn't not the remix of the album Boston Tea Party that may (or may not) not have been by Arthur Fiedler And The Boston Pops Orchestra. Or it may just be a lame excuse to show a pict

      • Southern Freeez - Freeez
        24/02/14
        It's always nice to get a submission from a viewer of the AllBum.Art web-site, and this one is no exception. Southern Freeez by Freeez was apparently a British take on the sound of the evolving New York disco scene (or so says Davee Vartisle of Leicester, England). Dave says, "babes were

      • Oh, Pretty Woman - Roy Orbison
        23/02/14
        This song by Roy Orbison is less 'Oh, Pretty Woman' and more 'Ah, Pretty Woman' when the enlightenment of the remixed cover exposes the woman of whom Mr Orbison so idly moans. The original lyrics of this song included the line 'take a peek, on my cheek, that's a sneak,

      • Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes - Paul Simon
        22/02/14
        Every songwriter and performer has their weird period. None moreso that Paul Simon. This song, Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes, is taken from his Graceland album which counterpoints the metaphor juxtaposing the urban realism of the sound of contemporary pop music with the dark yet multicolored

      • Hole In My Shoe - Traffic
        21/02/14
        And all that I knew was a Hole In My Shoe, that was letting in water (repeat to fade). So now you know everything you ever needed to know about this 1960s song by Traffic. No? Let us help, because the original cover doesn't. The song is about a shoe, that someone is wearing. And there'

      • Jailhouse Rock - Elvis Presley
        20/02/14
        Well it's a one for the money, a two for the show, a three to get ready but hey just a cotton picking minute that's not the Elvis Presley song that's being remixed here. No, this is a remix of Jailhouse Rock, the original cover of which sees Mr Presley rocking nothing in particular.

      • Israelites - Desmond Dekker
        19/02/14
        Ooooh, ooooh, me ears are alight. Ain't that what Desmond Dekker was really singing about in his 1969 classic Israelite? Either way, the original cover gives no answers to this conundrum. And rather than try and fathom the mysteries of the deep, the remix just enhances and modernizes the ori

      • Get Lucky - Daft Punk Featuring Pharrell Williams
        18/02/14
        Today's remix comes from French electro-poppers Daft Punk with their recent hit Get Lucky. The original cover shows what must be the band, playing their instruments, silhouetted against a hot setting sun. What's lucky about that? In the remix we see a fat, ugly lorry driver who somehow

      • Hot Stuff - Donna Summer
        17/02/14
        Hot Stuff by Donna Summer continues our dancing divas theme but takes us back to the 1970s to the heyday of disco. All we have done to bring this classic up-to-date is change the picture. Instead of the (sadly now deceased) Ms Summer, we see a chick wearing what can only be described as 'hori

      • Watchin' - Freemasons Featuring Amanda Wilson
        16/02/14
        Watchin' by Freemasons Featuring Amanda Wilson continues our dance-off. The original cover starts to tell the tale of what or who is being watched, featuring, as it does, a keyhole through which it must be assumed that the watchin' is taking place. The problem is that what is being watch

      • Incredible - The Shapeshifters
        15/02/14
        Those dance hits just keep comin' as we burn up the decks with our funky remixes (you're right, we should stick to the cover remixes and leave the DJing to DJs). This is a remix of the 2006 single Incredible by The Shapeshifters. What's incredible about the original cover is it'

      • Up & Down - Scent
        14/02/14
        Following yesterday's remix of the dance track by Eric Prydz, we have been in a bit of a dancing mood at AllBum.Art. Today's remix is an obscure club track from Scent called Up & Down. The original cover is just boring beyond belief. The remix shows a hot chick sitting half-way up (

      • Pjanoo - Eric Prydz
        13/02/14
        The original cover for Eric Prydz 2008 single Pjanoo scores a couple of points on the AllBum.Art scoring system. Why? It features a piano, which is presumably what the title is inferring though it's not 100% clear, what with all that wacky Scandinavian spelling. The remix scores a couple of e

      • Killer Queen - Queen
        12/02/14
        The original cover of Killer Queen by British rock megaband Queen is, to put it mildly, lackluster. It just shows the band with floppy 1970s haircuts looking, if anything, bored. The remix shows exactly what it should, a devilishly dastardly queen whose looks could kill, let along her evil magic.

      • You'll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties - Jona Lewie
        11/02/14
        You'll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties by Jona Lewie is one of those songs that gets played at the kind of parties where it's best to be in the kitchen because the music choice is too sad to dance to. The original cover reflects this musical sadness. The remix, shows someone els

      • Stiletto Heels - Sailor
        10/02/14
        Perfection is hard, if not impossible to achieve. But this remix comes pretty close. The original cover for this 1976 song called Stiletto Heels by Sailor shows the band in a completely fictitious backdrop playing their instruments in front of a false frontage. There's nothing false about th

      • Hand On Your Heart - Kylie Minogue
        09/02/14
        Put your Hand On Your Heart, is the instruction we are given by Kylie Minogue in her 1989 single. But does Kylie demonstrate what this entails? No. She sits in some kind of mid-western barn-yard looking like a reject from a line-dancing party. Sadly, the remix doesn't completely resolve this

      • Stand And Deliver - Adam And The Ants
        08/02/14
        Just answer one simple question and we can be done. Who would you rather be held at gunpoint by and asked to 'Stand And Deliver' - Adam And The Ants or some sexy topless pirate girl? If your answer was a sexy topless pirate girl then you are in the right place, as that's exactly who

      • School's Out - Alice Cooper
        07/02/14
        Another triple-whammy of covers, this time the remix of Alice Cooper's 1972 classic School's Out (For Summer). The original cover shows a typical 1970s classroom desk. The first of our remixes shows a teacher in stockings and high heels for whom it is clearly summer and no school as she

      • Go Wild In The Country - Bow Wow Wow
        06/02/14
        Apparently the original cover for Go Wild In The Country by Bow Wow Wow caused some controversy at the time as the lead singer was too young to be posing naked in front of anyone, let alone on the cover of a single. Our remix does away with this controversial image and instead just shows four babes

      • Misfit - Curiosity Killed The Cat
        05/02/14
        "Why all the remixes of obscure tracks?" is a question we get asked a lot here at AllBum.Art. The answer is too complicated to give in full but in the case of this particular cover, it was purely the fact that one of the team found a photo of a sexy milf whose skirt and t-shirt were too sh

      • In The Midnight Hour - Wilson Pickett
        04/02/14
        A 1960s soul classic remix from Wilson Pickett. The original cover of In The Midnight Hour shows Mr Pickett singing into his microphone but no indication of where he is or how late in the day it it. The remix resolves this anomaly by using a wider view to show that Mr Pickett is standing in a stre

      • A Roller Skating Jam Named 'Saturdays' - De La Soul
        03/02/14
        A Roller Skating Jam Named 'Saturdays' is a rather odd title for a song but then De La Soul were never shy of oddness (or so it says here). The original cover shows artwork of the time (early 199s) with two people (one boy, one girl) holding hands with roller skates on. The remix shows t

      • Saturday Night Fever
        02/02/14
        Not strictly a remix of the cover of a song, but there is an album of the movie soundtrack for which this cover fits perfectly! We just couldn't bare to see Mr Travolta jiving away on the dance-floor with a woman who seems unable to fulfill even the basic feverish requirements. So we have giv

      • Moon River - Andy Williams
        01/02/14
        Following on the theme of songs with moon in the title, and thus an excuse to show 'buttocks exposed for fun', we bring you the classic Moon River as sung in 1961 by Andy Williams, oh yes. The original cover shows, well, shows Mr Williams much as you would expect. The remix is the ultimat

    • January
      • Summer (The First Time) - Bobby Goldsboro
        31/01/14
        Amazing! It seems that even in the 1970s, people were using picture editors to rework photos. The cover of Summer (The First Time) by Bobby Goldsboro shows Mr Goldsboro standing alone on an empty beach. But the truth is shown in the second picture. Standing behind him is a sexy babe flashing her

      • Telephone - Lady Gaga Featuring Beyoncé
        30/01/14
        Telephone by Lady Gaga Featuring Beyoncé is one of those annoying songs that's about being annoyed by a noisy telephone when you are trying to enjoy yourself. Odd that Ms Germanotta should be so perturbed by her phone when she lost it in her hit Just Dance. The remix does away with Ms Germano

      • Moondance - Van Morrison
        29/01/14
        It's always great to receive remixes of album artwork submitted to us by our visitors. It seems we were not the only ones who were inspired by the definition of 'moon' relating to revealing buttocks - an activity we greatly support here at AllBum.Art. This one is provided by Dirk Fa

      • Blue Moon - Elvis Presley
        28/01/14
        Following the theme of songs with 'moon' in their title is the 1956 classic Blue Moon by none other than Elvis Presley. The original cover shows a handsome Mr Presley but no indication of what the song has got to do with the moon, though the style of the record could be said to be based o

      • The Whole Of The Moon - The Waterboys
        27/01/14
        The Whole Of The Moon was a hit in 1985 (and again when re-released in 1991) for The Waterboys. The original single cover actually consisted of a record cover with the title on it, with the central picture of the moon being printed on the enclosed single. Nice idea! The cover lacked one important

      • New Moon On Monday - Duran Duran
        26/01/14
        The last of this week's Duran Duran remixes provided to us by Tony Key of England is for the single New Moon On Monday. For this remix, Mr Key came up with an idea which we at AllBum.Art like very much and which has inspired us to greater things to follow. The word 'moon' has several

      • A View To A Kill - Duran Duran
        25/01/14
        A View To A Kill was a hit in 1985 for Duran Duran as the theme tune to the James Bond movie of the same name. This remix is sent in by Tony Key of England who has provided us with a whole week of Duran Duran remixes. The original cover is Bond themed, as we look down the barrel of a gun at Mr Bon

      • Come Undone - Duran Duran
        24/01/14
        Come Undone was a single taken from the The Wedding Album by Duran Duran, which we have previously remixed here at AllBum.Art. This remix was submitted by Tony Key of England who says,The original cover gives no indication of what it is that has come undone other than perhaps the strap of a shoe (wh

      • Skin Trade - Duran Duran
        23/01/14
        Skin Trade was a relatively minor hit for Duran Duran, but one of the more deserving of a remix.
        Or so says Tony Key who has provided this week's remixes. The original cover shows the curved and oiled skin of a naked model. The remix indicates a different kind of skin trade altogether.

      • Rio - Duran Duran
        22/01/14
        The next in this week's Duran Duran remixes provided by Tony Key of England is for the single Rio. In the video to the song, Rio appears to be a hot babe in a bikini who is enjoying the sunshine on a sailing boat. On the original cover of the single she seems to be an oddly made-up semi-geish

      • Planet Earth - Duran Duran
        21/01/14
        The second of this week's series of Duran Duran remixes provided by Tony Key of England. This one bears a striking resemblance to yesterday's remix of Girls On Film - no doubt the band had a theme going at the time. The original cover of Planet Earth shows different vistas from the plane

      • Girls On Film - Duran Duran
        20/01/14
        This week we are grateful to Tony Key of England who has provided a whole week's worth of remixes of Duran Duran single covers. We start the week with a remix of Girls On Film. The original cover shows the boys in the band in artistic poses and in various different colors. The remix shows som

      • Stairway To Heaven - Led Zeppelin
        19/01/14
        The second single cover remix for rock legends Led Zeppelin, Stairway To Heaven is probably one of their best known tracks and one which constantly ranks highly on any 'Top 100 All Time...' list. The cover indicates that the heaven that awaits at the top of the stairway is lit by a spooky

      • I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me) - Whitney Houston
        18/01/14
        I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me) was probably one of Whitney Houston's biggest hits. The upbeat mega pop song had an upbeat and cheesy 1980s style video and had a cover that offered a tempting view of Ms Houston who appears to be indicating that if you dance with her she will take he

      • My Sharona - The Knack
        17/01/14
        One of those songs whose guitar riffs lead most men of a certain age into bouts of air guitar playing. Had they seen the original cover of My Sharona, it might lead to other riffs. The cover (as you can see) shows Sharona who appears to be a hot 1970s babe in a tight fitting t-shirt and no bra (th

      • Cars That Go Boom - L'Trimm
        16/01/14
        This 1988 hip-hop classic has a title that is revving up the remixing engine here at AllBum.Art. Cars That Go Boom was probably the biggest hit of Miami duo L'Trimm. In true 1990s stylee, the cover shows the band on a psychedelic graffiti tag background. The remix shows exactly what you would

      • Don't Leave Me This Way - Thelma Houston
        15/01/14
        Don't Leave Me This Way was a 1977 disco hit for Thelma Houston (who ironically is from Mississippi and not Texas!) The cover of the single shows Ms Houston sitting huddled tightly in a white dress. It is evident that she does not want to be left that way. In the remix not much has changed e

      • The Model - Kraftwerk
        14/01/14
        According to this 1981 single from German electronic popsters Kraftwerk, "She's a model and she's looking good". At least that is how the opening line of their single The Model goes. But just who is this model, and why is she looking so good? The original cover offers no insig

      • Fattie Bum-Bum - Carl Malcolm
        13/01/14
        Some songs, like this rock-steady reggae song from the 1970s are just begging for a remix. Fattie Bum-Bum was apparently Britain's biggest reggae hit - that's probably not saying much. What is also not saying much is the cover of the single, not until we at AllBum.Art remixed it to show

      • Going Underground - The Jam
        11/01/14
        Whilst we are on the subject of remixes of British rock legends, here's a counterpoint from the 'Mod' generation band The Jam. Going Underground was one of their biggest hits but the cover of the single doesn't indicate who or what it is that is going underground. It turns out

      • Pinball Wizard - The Who
        10/01/14
        "Ever since I was a young boy, I played the silver ball" is the opening line of this 1969 song from rock legends The Who. Now we are led to believe that this is because the person concerned is a Pinball Wizard, but the remix of the single cover artwork offers an alternative suggestion: th

      • Loco-Motion - Little Eva
        09/01/14
        Everybody's doing a brand new dance now. Well it might have been brand new in the 1960s but today it's as common as a dime. The Loco-Motion is a dance originally brought to us by Little Eva and involves all kinds of twists and turns. The original cover shows Ms Boyd but tells us nothing

      • Walk This Way - Run DMC
        08/01/14
        Walk This Way was a hit for Run DMC (and not mentioning those Aerosmith dudes) in the 1980s. The cover of the single shows the band members in an interesting pose. One of them has obviously seen something he wants and is pushing the other two back so that he can get at it first. The question is,

      • Three Steps To Heaven - Eddie Cochran
        07/01/14
        Just follow the Three Steps To Heaven, is what Eddie Cochran instructed us to do way back in 1960. But what will we find if we go there? If the original cover art is to be believed, we will find the aforementioned Mr Cochran playing his guitar. In the remixed version we find that heaven is much m

      • 7 Ways To Love - Cola Boy
        06/01/14
        Yesterday we stated that some cover art remixes are inspired by a song's title, and some by a picture. This remix is inspired by both! 7 Ways To Love is an obscure dance single from the 1990s by one-time band Cola Boy. But the title fits the picture perfectly. 7 versions of the same girl, i

      • Delights Of The Garden - The Last Poets
        05/01/14
        As has been said many times at AllBum.Art, sometimes a remix of a cover is inspired by the cover of a song or its title, and sometimes by a picture that is just too good to miss the chance to use. This is one of those latter instances where a picture (in this case of a lot of mature ladies in welli

      • Pony - Ginuwine
        04/01/14
        Pony was the first single for Washington D.C. rapper Ginuwine. The original cover shows the face of a pony - which is a reasonable thing to show on a single of that name. We feel that Mr Lumpkin would be better served by a different kind of pony though and in the remix we see a naked babe with a po

      • Fields Of Gold - Sting
        03/01/14
        Sting (real name Gordon Sumner) released the single Fields Of Gold in 1993. The original cover shows Mr Sumner standing beneath an umbrella with the picture having been colored in a gold hue to signify the goldness of the song. The remix shows what? A naked girl in a real field of gold. No additi

      • Reet Petite - Jackie Wilson
        02/01/14
        Reet Petite is a 1957 song (re-released in the mid 1980s) by Jackie Wilson, known the world over for the rolling-R's of Mr Wilson's p-r-r-r-onunciation. The original cover shows Mr Wilson in various different dancing positions but shows no sign of the petite person of whom he sings. The

        Happy New Year to you from all of us at AllBum.Art. To celebrate the new year, we bring you a remix of New Years Day by Irish band U2. The original cover is a bit weird with a half naked boy hiding behind a pole. The remix shows the aftermath of a particularly tiring new years party. Everyone is

        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

        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

        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.

In the remix, night has become day and in that period it appears the dress has fallen off completely lea

        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

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

        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

        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

        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.

        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

Instead of Santa, a reindeer, a hippo and a bird singing in a ba

        Another of those Holiday songs that has been sung by a cast of thousands, Winter Wonderland is a seasonal classic.

        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.

      • Short Shorts - The Royal Teens
        24/10/13
        Who wears Short Shorts? That's the question that The Royal Teens were asking back in 1957 (that's officially a long time ago). Although the song is obviously meant to describe the wearing of particularly skimpy shorts, the cover, which features the band, does not help visualize the short

      • The Joker - Steve Miller Band
        23/10/13
        Some people call me the space cowboy... That's what Steve Miller Band told us in their 1970s single The Joker. And from the cover it's quite easy to see why the aforementioned Mr Miller might get accused of being from out of space (especially in the 1970s). But what about the joke relate

      • Spread Your Love - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
        22/10/13
        Time for a remix for San Francisco/L.A. rockers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Their single Spread Your Love is just asking for a special AllBum.Art remix, especially as the original cover is so incredibly dull. The difficulty with finding a picture of a sexy babe to which the phrase Spread Your Love

      • Fly Away - Lenny Kravitz
        21/10/13
        A second cover remix for NYC's very own Lenny Kravitz. The original cover for Fly Away shows Mr Kravitz in a very pouty pose. Now perhaps he is expecting this pose to somehow provide him with some means of becoming airborne, but otherwise there's nothing to indicate exactly how, or why, he

      • Cleanin' Out My Closet - Eminem
        20/10/13
        Interesting that an artist as respected as Eminem should have a cover for his single Cleanin' Out My Closet that misses one very very important element, and that is any evidence of actual cleaning going on. Of course someone as rich as Mr Mathers no doubt employs other people to do his cleanin

      • Goody Two Shoes - Adam Ant
        19/10/13
        Another submission from a fan of the site (if 'fan' and 'this site' aren't inherently contradictory). This comes from Alan Morris from Manchester in the UK. Alan says,Goody Two Shoes is a song that has always held a special meaning for me. I met my first love when this wa

      • Love Song For A Vampire - Annie Lennox
        18/10/13
        Love Song For A Vampire was written by Annie Lennox (better known as the lead singer of electropopsters Eurythmics for the film Dracula. To be fair, the cover does a reasonable job, showing, as it does, Ms Lennox in vampy make-up. We thought we could do better though and have replaced Ms Lennox wi

      • Pulling Mussels (From The Shell) - Squeeze
        17/10/13
        How do we keep up the dismal quality that is the hallmark of this web-site? By finding weird pictures of cute babes and then infusing them with a special kind of blurriness and then adding them, sub-consciously into the cover of a track. That's how this one came about. Pulling Mussels (From T

      • Don't Look Back In Anger - Oasis
        16/10/13
        This 1996 song from British band Oasis has probably one of the worst covers that we at AllBum.Art have seen. Are the band members there? No. Is there anything that relates to the title of the song, like a back, or someone who is angry? No. Damn good job that we go our hands on it then and came up

      • Bus Stop - The Hollies
        15/10/13
        Another cover art remix prompted by a picture rather than by the song. What could be more normal than a woman standing at a Bus Stop with her panties around her ankles? Where on earth did these pinup artists get their ideas. Regardless, it's a good chance for a remix of a golden oldie, in thi

      • Somebody Else's Guy - Jocelyn Brown
        14/10/13
        Despite not being a big hit in the charts, Somebody Else's Guy by Jocelyn Brown is one of those songs you just can't help bobbing along to. The remix of the cover is just simply pulling open the blinds of the original cover to reveal the girl behind. With the blinds open we can see that sh

      • Float On - The Floaters
        13/10/13
        One of those 1970s soul classics, Float On by The semi-eponymous Floaters has a really terrible cover. That's not to say that a picture of the band isn't a credible attempt, but boys, please, the name of the band and the name of the song involve floating, so where's the floatiness?

      • Air Hostess - Busted
        12/10/13
        Whilst we are on a transport theme, what about moving from trains to planes. Hey presto! Here is a remix of the 2004 single from British boy band Busted. The original cover of Air Hostess clearly demonstrates that the boys in the band find the idea of air hostesses sexy. Our remix has just turned

      • Last Train To Trancentral - The KLF
        11/10/13
        Here at AllBum.Art we are rather fond of pictures of naked chicks in and around train tracks (the reasons for which are unknown but might perhaps be to do with how boring rail journeys generally are). Anyhow, what better than to add another remix to the list and this time an obscure 1990s single fr

      • Through The Barricades - Spandau Ballet
        10/10/13
        According to this 1980s new wave single from Spandau Ballet, we made our love on wasteland, and Through The Barricades (that's what the chorus says anyhow). But the cover shows nothing of this at all. Now it does score some points because it has a picture of the band on it, but shows nothing

      • Centerfold - J Geils Band
        09/10/13
        Time for the remix of cover art that is just screaming for one. This 1981 single from the J Geils Band has on its cover a picture which is presumably meant to reflect what represented a centerfold in the 80s, though actually a quick Goggle[sic] search for 80s centerfolds reveals a lot more than the

      • Blue Suede Shoes - Elvis Presley
        08/10/13
        Not the first remix of the cover of a single for Elvis Presley. This time it's the rockabilly classic Blue Suede Shoes which is just begging for modernization. Although a picture of Elvis is what set the world alight in the late 1950s, these days it's hot chicks that do it (and probably

      • Poison Arrow - ABC
        07/10/13
        Another single cover remix that has been initiated by a picture. This time it's 1980s new wave band ABC and their single Poison Arrow that gets the remix. We have replaced the picture of a sexy female archer holding some arrows with a similar picture of a sexy female archer but this time draw

      • We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off - Da Playaz Versus Clea
        06/10/13
        Taking clothes off seems to be a recurring theme here at AllBum.Art, for very good reasons. This time it's a remix of the cover version of We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off by Da Playaz Versus Clea which is doing the honors. Instead of the original band members with their clothes on,

      • Whip It - Devo
        05/10/13
        Whip It by Devo is one of those songs that will probably be played forever more at discos and parties across the nation. Why? Because the idea of 'whipping it good' provides an image that most party-goers would see as being the next steps to a successful night after the party has ended.

      • Light My Fire - Will Young
        04/10/13
        Aah... there's nothing so natural to behold as naked girls frolicking in the woods. So all that's needed is an excuse to use a picture of some. And this version of the classic song Light My Fire by British singer Will Young is just screaming for a remix. Gone is Mr Young's chinny gr

      • You Can Leave Your Hat On - Joe Cocker
        03/10/13
        We seem to be stuck in the 1980s this week with this remix of the cover of Joe Cocker's song You Can Leave Your Hat On. The song is synonymous with movies where people get naked (9.5 Weeks and The Full Monty for example) but the cover does not reflect this for even one hat-pickin' minute.

      • Living In A Box - Living In A Box
        02/10/13
        As we have said many times before at AllBum.Art it is often a picture that spurs on a remix of the cover of a song, rather than the song or its original cover. That's the case with this obscure 1980s track by the eponymous Living In A Box. We found a picture of a cute babe who appeared to be

      • It's My Party - Lesley Gore
        01/10/13
        It's My Party, and I'll cry if I want to. That's what Lesley Gore told us in her 1963 version of this song. The cover though gives no indication of why Ms Goldstein would be crying at the party. The remixed cover gives us an insight into what is happening at the party and now much

    • October
      • Gold - Spandau Ballet
        30/09/13
        The cover of this 1983 song from Spandau Ballet fails in so many ways, it's difficult to know where to begin. For starters, the title of the song is Gold but the cover has no gold on it. None at all. Neither does it show any of the band members. And so it does nothing to connect the viewer

      • Waterfalls - Stooshe
        29/09/13
        Like many a time here at AllBum.Art a remix of the cover art of a song has been spurred on, not by the original artwork, but by a single picture that just deserved to grace the front of a cover. This is the case with this remix of the 2012 cover of TLC's Waterfalls by British band Stooshe. Or

      • Where The Streets Have No Name - U2
        28/09/13
        Where, indeed, do the streets have no name, that is the question we should be asking. But this question is not answered by the cover of U2's 1987 single Where The Streets Have No Name. We could only think of one place where the streets have no name, and that would be where no-one cares what t

      • Macarena - Los Del Rio
        27/09/13
        The Macarena was a world-wide dance craze in the mid 1990s, brought to us by the power of three old Spanish crooners called Los Del Rio. The dance involved folding your arms every which way (but loose) and then, after some arm flailing, a couple of jumps to take you through 90 degrees to point in a

      • Walk Like An Egyptian - The Bangles
        26/09/13
        Walk Like An Egyptian is the well known single from LA band The Bangles. The cover of their 1986 single leaves a lot to be desired, though. Not only does it not contain a picture of the sexy band members themselves (which would surely have been sufficient for the cover not to require a remix), but

      • I'll Be Waiting - Lenny Kravitz
        25/09/13
        Onkel Joz writes to us to suggest his remix of the cover for Lenny Kravitz 2008 song I'll Be Waiting. As you can see, Joz's remix is rather subtle and just adds in the words 'wait even longer mix' and corrects the jaunty angle that was an abhorrent slur on the original cover. W

      • Blue Eyes - Elton John
        20/09/13
        The second remix for 70s popster Elton John. This time for his song Blue Eyes, the original cover for which features Mr Dwight leaning on what appears to be a pole (as used in the eponymous dance act). Did they have those in 1982? Anyhow, the remix just shows a babe with blue eyes, who, for some r

      • Legs - ZZ Top
        19/09/13
        Just a simple update of this classic 1980s rock track from ZZ Top. The original cover does a pretty good job of identifying the kind of legs that the Top boys are singing about. But that was nearly 30 years ago. Today, skirts are shorter and heels are higher and the remixed cover does a good job

      • Just The Way You Are - Bruno Mars
        18/09/13
        Another remix for Mr Bruno Mars. This time it's his 2010 single Just The Way You Are. What is all that craziness going on on the cover? A mosaic of a face of a woman... is that how Mr Hernandez likes his women. And is that how Mr Hernandez wants his women to remain? Us, we prefer a naked chi

      • Here Is The News - Electric Light Orchestra
        17/09/13
        The remix for this 1982 single from the Electric Light Orchestra was prompted by the closure of the local newspaper. Apparently no one reads newspapers any more, they get their news on TV or online. The original cover of Here Is The News shows the band standing on (or in front of) what appears to

      • I Talk To The Trees - Clint Eastwood
        16/09/13
        Did you even know that Clint Eastwood was a singer? Yes, he had a single in 1969 with a song taken from the movie Paint Your Wagon. The cover of the single I Talk To The Trees shows Mr Eastwood together with Mr Marvin sitting by a camp fire so where are the trees and why are they on speaking terms

      • Head Over Heels - Allure Featuring Nas
        05/09/13
        We're in a bit of a Head Over Heels vibe, having been looking for pictures for yesterday's Tears For Fears track. This track of the same name from New York R&B babes Allure has a sexy video but a boring cover. So we remixed it with another 'heels over head' babe. This one

      • Head Over Heels - Tears For Fears
        04/09/13
        Three covers? Why not! The original cover for this 1985 single from Tears For Fears shows the two band members looking moody - oh, great - just what you need. No! What you really need is some kind of Head Over Heels remix and that's just what we have delivered for you. The first remix is just

      • I Can't Wait - Nu Shooz
        03/09/13
        Whilst we were in 1984 (see yesterday's Van Halen remix), this song from Nu Shooz came to mind. The original cover art for I Can't Wait shows what exactly? A pedestrian crossing guy and some colored blobs (maybe meant to be traffic signals). What do we see in the remix? A hot chick in

      • Jump - Van Halen
        02/09/13
        Many an air guitar has been played at discos across the nation when Van Halen's 1984 hit Jump blerted out of the loudspeakers. But the cover is taken from their album 1984 and does not demonstrate in any way, how to actually jump. So the remixed cover does this for you. What you obviously need

      • Bounce - Calvin Harris Featuring Kelis
        01/09/13
        If ever a song title was rife for a-remixing, it has to be Calvin Harris with his song Bounce (featuring Kelis). The original cover shows Mr Harris wearing some rather odd looking sunglasses that would appear to pretty much cut out all the light. The remix shows us why he needed them as he's

    • August
      • Lipstick On Your Collar - Connie Francis
        26/08/13
        For some reason it is those classic old songs that are best suited to a remix of the covers. This is a 1959 song from Connie Francis but is still known today as Lipstick On Your Collar is as common today as it was then. Of course the outlook changes from a simple cover with some lipstick on it, to

      • Pony Time - Chubby Checker
        20/08/13
        In the 1960s there were lots of crazy new dances such as the Mash Potato and the Stomp. This was one of Chubby Checker's attempts to launch one, in this case Pony Time. The original cover shows Mr Checker demonstrating the various moves of the Pony Time. The remix shows a naked chick in high

      • You Sexy Thing - Hot Chocolate
        14/08/13
        To the ladies, the picture of Errol Brown, the lead singer of Hot Chocolate might represent a sexy thing with his bald head and melancholy smile. For the boys, though, the idea of a Hot Chocolate Sexy Thing is probably more like the picture on the remixed cover of the single, a hot, chocolate, sexy

      • Professional Widow - Tori Amos
        13/08/13
        Honey bring it close... bring it close to my lips, yeah! At least that is what Tori Amos told us in her 1996 dance-floor filler Professional Widow. But what does a professional widow look like? She would have to wear black and appear very meek but clearly look as if she could tear up any wills th

      • Disco Inferno - The Trammps
        12/08/13
        We were having a bit of a 70s flashback in the office and enjoying The Trammps song Disco Inferno when it was suggested that the cover needed a thorough remixing. The cover shows a platform wedge heel shoe. Well that's probably very representative of 70s discos but in the 2010s things have ch

      • Rock The Boat - Hues Corporation
        11/08/13
        It seems that it's not only Mr Forrest who has a problem understanding what it takes to Rock The Boat. The original version by the Hues Corporation has an equally uninspiring cover showing the three members of the band. Although this is a good start, it is a poor end and what is really needed

      • Rock The Boat - Forrest
        11/08/13
        In 1982 Forrest told us to Rock The Boat. But the cover of Mr Forrest's single would not rock anyone's boat, that is unless they happened to like beardy guys wearing dinner shirts and a false smile. What would rock the boat would be a couple of hot chicks steering it wearing much less, w

      • Don't Turn Around - Aswad
        10/08/13
        Staying with the pictures of babes, in bikinis, on a beach we have remixed this rather obscure hit by reggae outfit Aswad. The cover for Don't Turn Around originally contained a picture of the band but in the remix it is a sexy babe on a beach in a bikini that you can see. What has this got t

      • On The Beach - Chris Rea
        09/08/13
        Yes, a return to bikini clad babes and summer songs is necessary. This single (and album of the same name) by Chris Rea does just that taking us On The Beach. But on Mr Rea's beach there is naught but an umbrella. On the remixed cover the beach is still relatively empty but there is now a cu

        08/08/13
        What a fussy lot you are sometimes? Not only does Maark from South Africa complain that summer songs in August are not right if you live south of the Equator, but now Jessie Hendricks from Charleston SC says that where he lives, the defining feature of the summer months is that there's a const

      • I Can't Stand The Rain - Eruption
        07/08/13
        We got an e-mail from Maark Klempe from South Africa who said that although it might be summer in the northern hemisphere, it was the middle of winter where he lived and that we shouldn't be so insensitive by publishing lots of new cover art for summery songs. So here, especially for Maark is

      • Walking On Sunshine - Rockers Revenge
        06/08/13
        It's August and what could be more natural than digging out those good old summer songs and playing them loud whilst sitting around a pool drinking a cold beer. So remixing the covers of summer hits seems an equally suitable passtime. Here's a remix of 1982 song Walking On Sunshine by Ro

      • Barbados - Typically Tropical
        05/08/13
        What a refreshing find, that even in the 1970s there were designers around who could put a decent cover for a single together. This summery song from Typically Tropical has several covers but all of them show a babe on a beach in various states of undress. If this is what Barbados is like then boo

        04/08/13
        Another great summer song, this time from little known British act Tight Fit. Why the remix, well easy. Kent in the 'looking for cool pictures department' found the picture of the awesome chick in the bikini and needed a cover to remix it with. Fantasy Island seemed the ideal choice as we

        03/08/13
        Those summer songs keep on coming. This 1966 classic from The Lovin' Spoonful will be flooding out of radios from the East to the West coast as the sun beats down on the city streets. But the cover shows the band lazing on a sunny afternoon on a detatched stairway to nowhere. The remix shows

        02/08/13
        Continuing the summer holiday theme, here's a remix of the cover for New York disco groovers Blondie's 1980 single The Tide Is High. Even though a picture of Ms Harry reclining over a balcony is probably a reasonable picture for the cover, in the remix, it is clear that the high tide has w

        'A song for the summer holiday for party peoples in the world' (according to Jan VanDoelen of Rotterdam who sent us this entry). Apparently 4 Strings are a Dutch trance group and Jan thinks that the cover for their single Diving lacks an essential ingredient, that being, 'some nice g

        As much of a self publicist as David Hasselhoff is, we can't help but think that he would be cool with the remix of the cover of his 2006 single Jump In My Car. Yes, he is famous for jumping into a car (the camp Kitt) but is probably equally famous for his lethariosity (is that a word?) So ha

        There aren't that many singles which are officially labelled as a duet, but this one from the late, great Michael Jackson And Akon falls into that category. Called Hold My Hand, it shows two people holding hands - see what they did there? All that the remix has done is to zoom out a little to

      • Girls Fall Like Dominoes - Nicki Minaj
        17/07/13
        Two things are true to say. Firstly, most of the covers from Nicki Minaj's singles require no remixing, being about as out-there as anyone else. Secondly, the only reason that the cover of Girls Fall Like Dominoes has been remixed is because in the AllBum.Art office, we stumbled across a pict

        16/07/13
        The third piece of remixed album artwork for Rihanna, We Ride was released in 2006 but was a bit of a flop for Ms Fenty. A lot of the blame for this can probably be laid at the feet of the cover itself. Yes, it is nice to see a picture of Ms Fenty where the only skin on show is that which would ev

      • Beautiful Monster - Ne-Yo
        15/07/13
        The only thing that can be deduced from the cover of Ne-Yo's 2010 single Beautiful Monster is that Mr Smith (a.k.a. Ne-Yo) believes that it is more important to see his pouting face on the cover of the single than a close up of the monster about which he is singing. Thankfully, we have managed

      • Grenade - Bruno Mars
        14/07/13
        Does the hand-drawn blob on the cover of Bruno Mars's single Grenade look like a grenade to you, or more like a Robin wearing an ear-ring? A very poor attempt at a cover. It's a good job that AllBum.Art is here to remix the cover to bring back some sanity. In it, the ear-ring wearing bir

        In 2003 when 50 Cent released In Da Club, his first single, Mr Jackson (for that is his real name) was not that well known.

      • Bermuda Triangle - Barry Manilow
        10/07/13
        Mythologically speaking, in the Bermuda Triangle, things disappear. That's the general thrust of this 1980s song by Barry Manilow. On the cover, though, the only thing that has clearly disappeared is Mr Manilow's fashion sense. What would be more convincing would be to see a familiar Be

      • It's Raining Again - Supertramp
        09/07/13
        With summer here, what better time than to focus on songs about rain! This 1982 song from Supertramp declares that It's Raining Again. The cover of the single, however, has to rate as a 'fail'. Not only is the band not visible, but the only thing to suggest any kind of rain is a pic

      • Here Comes The Rain Again - Eurythmics
        08/07/13
        There is no particular reason for having a bit of a run on Eurythmics songs other than they make good subjects for remixes. Here Comes The Rain Again is another melancholy performance from the band with a cover which is equally lugubrious, showing the band members sitting looking at a brown wall.

        07/07/13
        There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart) was a top chart pop hit for British band Eurythmics in the mid 1980s. In those halcyon days, the art of producing appropriate (or inappropriate) single covers had not been perfected and we therefore see on the cover, an angel flying through the sky pus

        06/07/13
        This version of Can't Take My Eyes Off You is a 1980s remake of the classic Frankie Valli song of the 1960s by 'Cisco disco dudes Boys Town Gang. But, yuk, what a single cover. The gang seem to be car mechanics and it is completely unclear why anyone would be unable to take their eyes of

        Bend Me, Shape Me, anyway you want me. That's what Amen Corner believed constituted appropriate lyrics in 1966. Not until Aqua's Barbie Girl in the late 1990s did such submissive lyrics re-appear. The cover shows a doll ready to be bent and shaped, but only a wooden one. How much nicer i

        Wrap Me Up is the 1995 single from Italian dance troupe Alex Party. It's another obscure track but is here because of the delightful remix of the cover. The original cover says nothing. The remixed cover says "Wrap Me Up then Unwrap Me". Pull on the ribbon and see what's under

      • Dancing Tight - Galaxy Featuring Phil Fearon
        01/07/13
        Dancing Tight. What does the title of this 1983 single by Galaxy Featuring Phil Fearon bring to mind? Well, a babe in a tight fitting outfit dancing perhaps. No, that's not what Mr Fearon had in mind, instead a picture of him star jumping in a silly 1980s outfit. So we replaced Mr Fearon wi

      • (Let's Get) Physical - Olivia Newton-John
        30/06/13
        At the time of it's release, Olivia Newton-John's single and video for the song (Let's Get) Physical was seen as pretty edgy. Some radio stations even banned it. Of course today, it is pretty tame. So we've edged it up a little and replaced the picture of the tame Ms Newton-Joh

      • Sweet Hitch-Hiker - Creedence Clearwater Revival
        29/06/13
        Maybe it was the thing to do in the 1970s, put a picture of the hairy faced band on the cover of the single. Clearly for Creedence Clearwater Revival, this is exactly what they had in mind for the cover of their single Sweet Hitch-Hiker. What an opportunity they missed though. So we have revived

      • Can I Kick It - A Tribe Called Quest
        28/06/13
        Who could forget the classic retort to Can I Kick It? Yes, you can! The thing is, if such a thing can be called a thing, that the cover from A Tribe Called Quest's single fails to address even the most basic requirements for a cover. It does not show the band, nor does it cast any light on w

      • Love Is In The Air - Milk And Sugar Versus John Paul Young
        27/06/13
        Love Is In The Air was originally a hit for John Paul Young in the 1970s. This remixed cover is, appropriately, for the remixed version released by dance act Milk And Sugar in 2001. The original cover is very clearly missing something. The three guys are staring into space looking for the love in

      • Captain Of Your Ship - Reparata And The Delrons
        26/06/13
        An entry from Darren Cleethorpe from Hull in England. He says that this song was used as the theme tune to the ferry timetables on his local radio station 'Radio Humberside'. Reparata And The Delrons are apparently a US group but who enjoyed bigger success in good ole' England than

      • On A Rope - Rocket From The Crypt
        25/06/13
        On A Rope, right, that's what this obscure 1996 punk song from Rocket From The Crypt is supposed to be about. If that's the case, then why does the cover of the single show some kind of freaky Indonesian dog puppet silhouette? Know? Us neither. So we remixed it and put, guess what? A h

      • Hey, Soul Sister - Train
        24/06/13
        The cover for Train's 2009 hit Hey, Soul Sister is one of the most dull covers that we at AllBum.Art have ever zzz..... Sorry, dropped off there. Good job the cover has had a remix which both awakens the senses and shows us the soul sister that Train are singing about. Apparently it's on

      • Light My Fire - The Doors
        23/06/13
        Come On Baby, Light My Fire is what The Doors told us to do in 1966. Due to today's health and safety legislation such a call to action would no longer be permitted and the song would have had to have been called Put My Fire Out. The cover needs to reflect these changes in society and so inst

      • Throw Your Set In The Air - Cypress Hill
        22/06/13
        Throw Your Set In The Air is a 1995 single from Cypress Hill. Nothing ground-breaking there. But what does it actually mean? What is a 'set' and why is it being thrown into the air? Who is throwing the 'set'? Nothing on the original cover of the single answers these questions

      • Fallen Angel - Elbow
        21/06/13
        Are we gettin' a bit obscure on you? There's good reason though. Fallen Angel is a song by obscure British band Elbow. It charted at number 844 and rose stratospherically to reach number 841 in the English Hot 100. Yeah! Why is it here, just because the remix couldn't have a bett

      • Sitting Down Here - Lene Marlin
        20/06/13
        I'm Sitting Down Here so hey you can't see me. That's what Lene Marlin tells us is the case in her 1999 single. If that's the case, then no need to wear any clothes because no one is going to see you. But not Lene, no, she is (apparently) Norwegian where wearing no clothes is l

      • The Day We Caught The Train - Ocean Colour Scene
        19/06/13
        What would you expect to see on the cover of a single called The Day We Caught The Train. Well according to the artist Ocean Color Scene, you would expect to see the back of some Italian scooter. WTF! Where's the train that was caught and what was special about that day in particular? The r

      • Picking Up The Pieces - Paloma Faith
        18/06/13
        Did Paloma Faith really sing Picking Up The Pieces. If that's the case then D'Oh as a certain yellow bald-headed cartoon character would say. We here at AllBum.Art could have sworn she said Picking Up The Panties. That's why the remix of this 2012 single has had Ms Faith replaced b

      • What's In The Box (See Whatcha Got) - The Boo Radleys
        17/06/13
        When you find a picture of a totally hot naked babe posing on a box there's only one thing to do... find a single cover that needs a good remix. Why? What were you thinking? The problem is that there aren't too many songs that fit and so this very obscure 1990s single from The Boo Radley

      • Kiss The Bride - Elton John
        09/06/13
        Like we often say, sometimes a photo is just too good to waste. The bride in the remixed cover is soooo hot that there had to be a single cover that needed her. And that cover is this 1983 song by Elton John called Kiss The Bride. That has no f**king bride on it. What is Mr John up to? Oh, hang

      • Car Wash - Rose Royce
        08/06/13
        The original cover of Rose Royce's 1976 disco classic Car Wash is, to put it simply, garbage. It shows what? The word 'car wash' that's been extended into 3D by some fourth grade design student and the words 'Rose Royce'. Time for a remix to show what it's reall

      • Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel - Tavares
        07/06/13
        Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel. Is that so? If it is, then why isn't the cover of this 1970s disco classic from Tavares providing any indication of who, what or where she might be. Thankfully, we have found her and restored the cover of the single to its full glory. And glory, glory, halle

      • I Want To Hold Your Hand - The Beatles
        06/06/13
        And please say to me, you'll let me hold your hand - I Want To Hold Your Hand, this 1963 single from The Beatles proclaims. But the cover leaves many questions unanswered. Who is it that wants to do the hand holding, the whole band or just one of them? And whose hand is it they want to hold?

      • Just Mozian Along - Roger King Mozian And His Orchestra
        05/06/13
        An album so obscure that even the artist Roger King Mozian doesn't have an entry on Wikipedia, Just Mozian Along caught the attention of the AllBum.Art team because of the hapless Mr Mozian sitting on a horse. Why was this of interest? Simply because of the picture of the naked babe on a horse

      • Rip It Up - Bill Hailey
        04/06/13
        Steppin' back in time, jive bunnies, to the rolling, rocking 1950s and this single from Bill Haley and his Comets. The original cover of Rip It Up shows the head of Big Bad Bill, but no evidence of any kind of rippin' going on. The remix remedies this with a hot chic whose clothes have b

      • Itsy Witsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini - Ron Smith
        03/06/13
        Perhaps not the most well-known version of the song Itsy Witsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, but this one from Ron Smith has a cover that desperately needs a remix. And what a remix. The bikini on the babe on the new cover is so itsy bitsy and teenie weenie that all the polka dots have be

      • Virgin Killer - The Scorpions
        29/05/13
        One more from the Wikipedia list of controversial album art. This one is probably top of the list, as the cover features what appears to be a very young girl, in the nude, whose modesty is being protected only by a crack in the glass. The remixed version is, if anything, less extreme showing the g

      • Lemonade And Brownies - Sugar Ray
        28/05/13
        Yet another album cover remix taken from the list of controversial album art. The chick on the cover of Lemonade And Brownies by Sugar Ray is Nicole Eggert who is probably best known for... appearing naked on the cover of this album. Naked, with her boobs on the floor and her ass in the air. Nice

      • Tinkerbells Fairydust - Tinkerbells Fairydust
        27/05/13
        Another in the series of controversial album art. This cover is taken from the 1960s eponymous album by Tinkerbells Fairydust. The cover shows a cheeky Tinkerbell with her back to us, showing her pert ass. But what if Tinkerbell were not quite so cutesy, and had a darker side. With black wings a

      • Lovehunter - Whitesnake
        23/05/13
        Lovehunter by Whitesnake is yet another album cover inspired by the list of controversial album art. In it we see a naked woman with her back to us riding a great big snake (though oddly, given the name of the band, not a white one). In the remix, the one woman has been replaced by three and the s

      • Candy-O - The Cars
        22/05/13


        Not just one, but two remixes of the cover of this 1979 album from Boston rockers The Cars. This is another taken from Wikipedia's list of controversial album art. The original cover shows a 50s babe in a seethrough black bodystocking reclining. The remixes do more of the same, b

        21/05/13
        Trent Bridges of Alabama contacted us to ask if we had seen the page on Wikipedia that discussed controversial album art as he said it would be the kind of thing we would like. It seems that there is some album art around that doesn't necessarily need a make-over or remix by AllBum.Art. But t

      • That Ole Devil Called Love - Alison Moyet
        20/05/13
        Another submission from England where Alison Moyet is pop chart gold, at least so Gusty Tillson (you couldn't make these British names up - what were their parents thinking) tells us. The cover shows Ms Moyet 'carping on' about That Ole Devil Called Love. The remix shows the devil u

      • Ice Ice Baby - Vanilla Ice
        19/05/13
        Vanilla Ice, Ice Ice Ice Baby Ice and all that trash. Not only is the song annoying but the cover of this 1990 single from Mr Ice is just a jar of unnecessarily vivid colors and does nothing to conceptualize what an ice ice baby might be. Cue a remix. It seems the ice ice baby, is a naked babe wh

      • Dancing In The City - Marshall Hain
        17/05/13
        Neer heard of Marshall Hain? Neither had we until this entry was submitted by Mike Rotch of England. Apparently they were 'all the rage in 1978'. Mike says that the original cover is 'crap, because there's no dancing and no city'. So Mike has remixed it for us all and sa

      • The Magic Number - De La Soul
        16/05/13
        Three, apparently, is The Magic Number according to this 1990 single from New York hip-hop trio De La Soul. Does this refer to the three of them, or some other triple-play? Whichever, the cover of their single provides no enlightenment. The remix provides much more clarity. Three, it would seem,

      • Kung Fu Fighting - Carl Douglas
        15/05/13
        According to Carl Douglas, everybody was Kung Fu Fighting. If that is the case, then why, in this 1972 cover from Mr Douglas's single, is there only himself who is doing the fighting. A nice remix is necessary. And what better than to add some other people, doing some kung fu? And even bett

      • You Wear It Well - Rod Stewart
        14/05/13
        What? What is it? What do you mean 'I can see where this is going'. Of course you can. Rod Stewart is singing about someone else Wearing It Well, yet his cover shows him - egotist! Who was wearing what well, that is the question? Well maybe it was this chick who is wearing her outfit v

        13/05/13
        Anyone of a certain age remembers the video for Thriller by Michael Jackson. If you don't, think Glee with Zombies. But the cover of his 1982 album shows no signs of the dancing Zombie nature of the video, or the cackles of Vincent Price on the soundtrack. And so, Mr Jackson's cover has

        12/05/13
        Enjoying the disco vibes from yesterday's cover remix from Odyssey, another of their songs raised its head as needing a remix. Use It Up And Wear It Out's original cover sees the band standing around hugging each other. So what is worn out about that? Well right behind them was the girl

      • Going Back To My Roots - Odyssey
        11/05/13
        A song such as Going Back To My Roots by Odyssey deserves a right rampant remix. The first line of the song (and the chorus) is Zippin' Up My Boots. Well it is if you ignore the 'Adji Moar Ay' stuff at the very beginning. What that's about is anyone's guess. So boot zippi

      • We Built this City - Starship

        As with yesterday's remixed cover art, today's effort from Starship was also inspired by the picture on the remix. We Built This City is one of those songs that is probably being played by some radio station or other, somewhere across the country, at all times. In fact it might be a cove

      • Motorcycle Emptiness - Manic Street Preachers
        09/05/13
        It is fair to say that Motorcycle Emptiness by the unheard of Manic Street Preachers is only here for one reason. That reason is because the title of their 1992 song has the word 'motorcycle' in it, and something just had to be done with this picture of a hot chick leaning naked on a hot

        Three Times A Lady, right? Not if you're the designer of this cover from the Commodores' 1978 single. No, no ladies at all. Just a rather poor picture of the band - done six ways. Not three, but six. Time for a remix then, and what do we see in the remix? Once. Twice. Three times a

        07/05/13
        The 1970s were funny days. Hilarious in fact. The cover from (Don't Fear) The Reaper by the Blue Öyster Cult demonstrates this perfectly. What the hell is going on there then? Don't even begin to try and analyze it. Instead, use the remixed version in which we see two helpless girls w

        06/05/13
        Black And Gold. The title alone inspired the idea for a remix for Sam Sparro's 2008 single. Black, as in a pretty lady of african-american descent. Gold as in a pretty lady of caucasian descent who has got a nice sun tan. Could such a picture be found? Of course it could! And so in the rem

        05/05/13
        Billy Idol has featured a number of times on AllBum.Art as, for some reason, his songs and covers are perfectly designed for a good old remix. Mr Idol's 1983 album Rebel Yell needs a bit more of a revolutionary feel to it. Short of adding a picture of Fidel Castro, the alternative that has be

      • Firework - Katy Perry
        04/05/13
        The cover of this 2010 song from Katy Perry is lacking in some very important areas, and by far the greatest is the complete lack of any kind of Firework. How can you have a song called Firework and then not have sight nor sound of a Firework on the cover itself. That needed to be fixed, and fixed

        03/05/13
        What did success look like in Sweden in the 1980s? Contrary to popular myth, and if Roxette are to be believed through the medium of the cover of their 1989 single Dressed For Success, it looked like a lot of leather. Well in 2013 it looks very different. Gone is the leather, and in are high heel

        02/05/13
        Australian heavy metal band AC/DC scored an internationally acclaimed hit with their 1981 album For Those About To Rock We Salute You. Cleverly, the cover of the album shows a canon, as used for military salutes. It would be more obvious though, if the military salute were given by a real person a

        01/05/13
        Homer Simpson said that 'everyone knows that rock peaked in 1974'. Well D'Oh! For prog rock bands like Traffic that might be true. If the cover of their album The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys is anything to go by, it's easy to see why. If you're going to have a title wi

        23/04/13
        Another submission from Scotland: Big Country's Fields Of Fire (400 Miles) was apparently one of their biggest hits (though it only got to number 52 in the Billboard Hot 100) in 1983. This remix from Angus MacCoatup shows us exactly what fields of fire look like. That is if you can see beyond

        22/04/13
        If ever a song were cut out to have its cover remixed, it's this 2006 song from country chicken Kellie Pickler. What a chance she missed to have a classic cover when she released Red High Heels. Small Town Girl she might be, but that doesn't mean that the cover has to have a small town f

        20/04/13
        Name someone who doesn't know that These Boots Are Made For Walkin'. Because that's just what they'll do. One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you. Nancy Sinatra's 1966 classic has a cover which ain't too shabby. But with the addition of a little mo

        25/03/13
        This cover art remix comes all the way from Russia! The cover of Blondie's 1979 single Atomic shows Ms Harry standing in front of a mushroom cloud in a blue dress (surely made of some complex metal compound to save her from the radiation). The remix shows a topless Russian blonde girl in front

      • 9 To 5 - Dolly Parton
        24/03/13
        In 1980 when this single was released, the idea of a woman working 9 To 5 was almost unheard of. The cover shows Dolly Parton together with her tools and in a workman's clothes. This iconic song from the movie of the same name has been brought up to date. Ms Parton has been replaced by a dif

      • Trapped - Colonel Abrams
        23/03/13
        Trapped by Colonel Abrams is one of those songs that is trapped on the playlist of many radio stations across the nation despite approaching its 30th birthday. The time is right for a remix of the cover art. On the original cover we see Col Abrams trapped in some kind of florescent tubing. On the

        22/03/13
        Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) was a 1990 hit for Clivillés and Cole (shortened to C+C Music Factory). In the cover of the single we see one of the aformentioned gentlemen standing in front of someone who is dancing now. But she is not sweating, or at least if she is sweating, we cann

      • Everything About You - Ugly Kid Joe
        21/03/13
        In 1992, Ugly Kid Joe told us that they hated Everything About You ('you' referring to some girl or other). But the cover of their single doesn't show us the girl in question so we can't make up our mind whether we hate her or not. What is it about the particular girl that makes

        20/03/13
        And I say, "Whaaay hey hey hey hey, whaay hey hey. I say whaaay, what's goin' on". Such deep and meaningful lyrics from this 1993 song by 4 Non Blondes. They pose the question "What's Up?" Isn't it clear what's up? The single cover is boring, that

        14/03/13
        This submission from Troy Shakespeare of Australia shows just how far AllBum.Art has reached. The cover of Devil Inside by Aussie rockers INXS is meritorious in itself in that it reflects the name of the song in the picture. We like Troy's remixed cover better though, as it adds to the origin

        12/03/13
        Every good mid-West girl sings along with Born To Run by Bruce Springsteen. Don't ask why, they just do. This is the remix of the album cover of the same name. Mr Springsteen's picture has been replaced by one of those very mid-West girls who sings along who is very clearly born to run

        11/03/13
        Come Fly With Me by Frank Sinatra is one of those old-time classics that you don't mess with. Unless you're AllBum.Art that is! Mr Sinatra has been replaced by a girl posing as an aeroplane standing on what looks like a disused runway (you can tell because there are planes in the backgro

        10/03/13
        An album for a change. This time the rather longly titled Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars by Fatboy Slim. On the original cover we see a tantalizing glimpse of what might be a naked chick but is too 'extreme close-up' to tell. Let's back that camera right up and see what w

        06/03/13
        What would Sex On Fire look like, that's the question? Well certainly nothing like this 2008 cover that the Kings Of Leon put together. WTF is that anyway? Some kind of artistic shot of a rooster's red wobbly bit (the 'comb' for the more anatomically aware)? The remix has a hot

        The cover from REO Speedwagon (what the hell is one of those?) from their 1980s power ballad Can't Fight This Feeling (Any More) is enough to make you give up. What's worth fighting over, some red, green and a few splodges. Now the revised cover is worth fighting for, but it looks like y

        After the success that was Spacer also by Sheila & B. Devotion comes this cover remix of their 1978 single Singing In The Rain, whose origins are fairly obvious.

        Even today the phrase, "Get your motor running" is well known. Few realize that this 1968 song from rock band Steppenwolf is where it comes from. That's probably because the cover is awful. The more important question is, does the girl on the remixed cover look like she was Born To

      • Red Dress - Sugababes
        01/03/13
        Another cover from those British 'birds' the Sugababes with their 2005 single Red Dress. In the remixed version we see the Sugababes replaced by a girl in a red dress. Now isn't that a surprise? The fact that the dress is very skimpy and she also has stripper heels (also in red) ju

The format is therefore gonna change to just show the original artwork alongside the remix with a few (a very few) words. Here's Wheatus 2000 single Teenage Dirtbag remixed so t

        27/02/13
        Never heard of Mica Paris, or the album Whisper A Prayer? That's probably because you're not English. One of our submitters from England sent this. Apparently Ms Paris is some kind of fashion guru babe on TV who used to be a singer. Apparently we have to say, "Does my bum look big

        26/02/13
        This (and tomorrow's remixed album art) were submitted by Harold Binthwaite of England. Apparently, this was a 1960s song by two stars of the Avengers (the British version of Charlie's Angels), Patrick MacNee (Charlie) and Honor Blackman (insert random name of an angel here). Kinky Boots

      • There It Is - Shalamar
        25/02/13
        There It Is, opine Shalamar. But what is it, that it is, that is there? Is it the members of the band? The remix gives a different answer to what was lost and has now been found. There it is, says the girl on the left. Of course, says the girl on the right, I knew it was there all the time, I ha

      • Cha Cha Cha - Pedro Garcia And His Del Prado Orchestra
        24/02/13
        An old album from the 1950s but deserving of a remix. The original artwork for Cha Cha Cha by Pedro Garcia And His Del Prado Orchestra features a babe bending over wearing high heels and fishnet stockings. The remix does one thing, and one thing only. It changes the perspective of the viewer on the

      • Cheekah Bow Wow (That Computer Song) - Vengaboys
        23/02/13
        Those crazy Dutchmen (and women) the Vengaboys grace the pages of AllBum.Art with their song Cheekah Bow Wow (That Computer Song). The original cover shows what we can only assume to be the aforementioned Cheekah being some kind of robotic vacuum cleaner of some kind or other. The remix shows a ba

      • Back To The Shit - Millie Jackson
        22/02/13
        To be completely fair to Millie Jackson, we would score the cover of her album Back To The Shit full marks. On it we see Ms Jackson sitting astride the john, heels in hand, getting back to her defecating. So in that respect, we see the artist who is depicting the title, and hence the top score. Th

        21/02/13
        Er? What on this Earth or another does the original cover of The Banner Man by Blue Mink have to do with the title of the song, or the band? As far as we can see, nothing at all. However, they gain one bonus point for having what appears to be a naked babe in a hat on the cover. The remix changes

      • Upside Down - Jack Johnson
        20/02/13
        Being Upside Down is a good theme for a remix and the original cover of Jack Johnson's song of that name is an even better theme for a remix as it is so uniquely awful. It's not just the odd yellow background, but the rather cheesy picture of Mr Johnson playing his guitar in bare feet. O

      • Happenin' All Over Again - Lonnie Gordon
        19/02/13
        What can we say about the cover of the Lonnie Gordon disco dance classic Happenin' All Over Again? Well, it's red. And it features Ms Gordon bending down with her legs apart. Now that's dangerous territory for a remix and indeed the remix pushes many of the boundaries that we, here

      • Hunting For Witches - Bloc Party
        18/02/13
        Most people think that Hunting For Witches is only something that can be undertaken in October, around the time of Halloween, but that's just not true. Witches can be found at any time of year and are in fact easier to spot on sunny days rather than dark, dreary nights. Bloc Party therefore ha

        Until Alexandra Stan came on the scene, few people had even heard of Romania, believing it to be one of the old former Soviet states that had now been subsumed back into it's old master. But no. It seems that Romania is nothing like that. Instead it's a land where sexy girls (lots of th

        Relax, don't do it
        When you want to cum.

        Of course! How could anyone be so stupid! Except us perhaps. What the fuck has a picture of Katy Perry talking to a piece of fruit got to do with Hot N Cold? And by piece of fruit, it's not just the banana that's pictured in this version of the cover. Oh, no! There's other version

      • Are You Ready For Love - Patsy Gallant
        14/02/13
        Here's something of an anomaly, a singer from Canada that isn't either Mr Adams or Mr Buble. In fact it's not a Mr at all, but the shapely 70s figure of Patsy Gallant. The cover of her single (and album) Are You Ready For Love is even more unusual for a Canadian piece of artwork as

      • Bullet With Butterfly Wings - The Smashing Pumpkins
        13/02/13
        What a relief to return to the land of the free to do some work on this 1995 single from The Smashing Pumpkins. Bullet With Butterfly Wings was widely acclaimed for its musicianship. But what about that cover? Where to begin? Where, for one, is any connection to the band itself? Second, there

      • Angels - Robbie Williams
        12/02/13
        No. Sorry. Don't understand a word of it. The e-mail that arrived with this remixed cover comes from, apparently, someone calling themself Tabbo of Manchester in England. Tabbo says he knows about this site and then says:Youze aarn't fekk'n doddlin' it reet.

        11/02/13
        Ah, 1988, what a year. It was the year that came before 1989 and the year that came after 1987. And even more interestingly, it was the year that U2 released the single Angel Of Harlem. What many people do not recognize is that if you take all of the letters in Angel Of Harlem, and add them toge

        Kick It! No, that is not a reference to the bucket which Beastie Boy Adam Yauch sadly kicked in 2012, but is the now infamous opening line from the Beastie Boys classic 1986 single (You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party!) The very 1980s cover (in the sense that it's a very over everything,

      • I Kissed A Girl - Katy Perry
        09/02/13
        What a can of worms is opened up by Katy Perry in her 2008 song I Kissed A Girl. Not since the blatant lesbianism in the video for All The Things She Said by Russian teen group t.A.T.u. has the subject of girl on girl love made it to the Hot 100. Ms Perry's take on the issue is simply that th

        08/02/13
        Very little dating back to the 1960s retains any feel of modernness in today's fast changing society. That being the case, it is refreshing to find a female lead singer whose attire and style still looks as funky and sexy as it did nearly 50 years ago. The lead singer of Shocking Blue who are

      • I'm So Excited - The Pointer Sisters
        07/02/13
        I'm So Excited is the 1982 single from The Pointer Sisters. Although it dates to 1982, it's style has a lot in common with the 1970s disco sounds, the covers of which have formed a bit of a theme over the past few days here at AllBum.Art. But Oh, what a dull, dull, dull (did someone say

      • AWB - Average White Band
        06/02/13
        Another of those funky disco bands from the 1970s, the Average White Band really hit the pits when all they could come up with for the name of an album was AWB. And the cover of the album is even less inventive. It just comprises the name of the band, together with their logo. One thing of merit,

      • Yes Sir, I Can Boogie - Baccara
        05/02/13
        Those halcyon disco days of the 1970s provide an almost inexhaustible supply of single covers that verge on the sexy but don't quite make it. This cover from Baccara's 1976 single Yes Sir, I Can Boogie shows the two singers from the band standing next to each other. In true doesn't-

      • Erotica - Madonna
        04/02/13
        Another cover taken from the time when Ms Ciccone was publicly into getting naughty. This is the cover from Madonna's 1992 album Erotica which was published alongside a book called Sex. The book contained many photos of Ms Ciccone in many states of dress and undress. The album cover on the o

      • Chapel Of Love - The Dixie Cups
        03/02/13
        We're goin' to the chapel and we're, gonna get ma-a-a-ried. Is that so? Well in 1964 that's what The Dixie Cups were singing in their song Chapel Of Love. Here at AllBum.Art it's true to say that there have been quite a few songs about weddings that have featured as cover a

      • My Boy Lollipop - Millie
        02/02/13
        One of those 1960s songs that seems to have stood the test of time, My Boy Lollipop sees the sickly sweet voice of Millie singing lots of lyrics that revolve around glucose based confectionary. The cover of the single, on the other hand, does not offer us any insight into this world of candy-coated

      • Love Is A Battlefield - Pat Benetar
        01/02/13
        An American classic from Pat Benetar, Love Is A Battlefield is one of those songs that's timeless. Or at least if you use airplay to define what's timeless, then this is on the list as it's still played on the radio like there's no tomorrow. Anyhow, the cover of the single show

      • Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin
        31/01/13
        Na nah na nah nah, doo-doo, doo-doot. Na nah na nah nah, doo-doo, doo-doot. Yes, it's a Whole Lotta Love according to this 1970 single from Led Zeppelin. But oh, what a dismal cover for the single they have. And what on Earth is all this No.1 Super Group nonsense? Talk about talking yourself

      • Black Or White - Michael Jackson
        30/01/13
        Is he or isn't he? He certainly was originally. Later, perhaps he wasn't. The question of whether Michael Jackson was Black Or White was a regular discussion in many bars across the nation, at least it was when anyone could give a damn. In this song, Mr Jackson says that it doesn't

      • Only Girl (In The World) - Rihanna
        29/01/13
        Rihanna is another one who is asking for it. No, not that. But to have her covers remixed. That said, this single from 2010 marked a strong departure from her earlier tracks in that it is less dark and sexualized. Only Girl (In The World) has Ms Fenty singing about how she wants to be made to fee

      • Born In The USA - Bruce Springsteen
        28/01/13
        An all American classic like Apple Pie and July the 4th, Born In The USA is an 80's classic of its own by Bruce Springsteen. The cover for the single is relatively minimalist but almost has the essentials. Firstly, Mr Springsteen is pictured, in full rock-star electric guitar playing style.

      • Superstition - Stevie Wonder
        27/01/13
        As the classic 1970s guitar kicks in you prepare yourself for some proper 70's funk. That marks the introduction to this classic from Stevie Wonder from 1972. Superstition is one of those songs that gets people a-twistin' and a-groovin' on dancefloors even today. The cover, on the

        26/01/13
        What do we have here? An attractive blonde, squatting down, in a pretty dress in some kind of ragged yet picturesque blue-washed area. How this relates to the title of the album or the cover is totally unknown. The blonde in question does not even appear to be the singer for Fragma's 2002 al

        Another fanmade cover for us to showcase. This time from Tim Marshall of Nottingham, England... We're all going on a summer holiday, or at least that's what Cliff Richard has us repeating everytime the sun comes out. This cover from the 1963 single (and film of the same name) has Mr Rich

      • War - Edwin Starr
        24/01/13
        As with the remixed cover of I Shot The Sheriff, here is yet another cover remix inspired by a picture rather than by the song or the original cover artwork. One look at the remixed version will, without question have you going 'War, huh... what is it good for?' But first to the original

      • I Shot The Sheriff - Eric Clapton
        23/01/13
        Sometimes the name of an album or single inspires a remixed cover. Sometimes it is the original cover itself which demands a revised version to be produced. Sometimes, as is the case here, it is a random picture found whilst innocently trawling the Internet which forms the inspiration itself. Let

        22/01/13
        An album title waiting to be remixed if ever there was one. In fact a quick Internet search will reveal many remixed and fanmade covers for this 1986 album from Bon Jovi that immediately recognise the idea that there are many things that are Slippery When Wet but few more commonplace, or aesthetica

        21/01/13
        More mid-winter mayhem from those British boys Coldplay. This time their single Paradise is the focus of a remixed cover. This is one of those single covers that deserves to be remixed. It shows what exactly? Well, the words 'Coldplay' and 'Paradise' of course, but the rest o

        20/01/13
        Our Canadian friend Micheal Boob-lay presents lots of opportunities to play around with the artwork covering his singles and albums. It seems our British friends Coldplay offer a similarly wide range of opportunities. The twist here is in 'cold play', as in playing outside in the cold.

      • U Girls (Look So Sexy) - Nush
        19/01/13
        There aren't many songs with the words 'sexy' and 'girls' in the title and so it was a joy to find this 1994 single which, to be fair, is very obscure but does at least offer the chance for a really good remix of the cover artwork. The original cover has a girl in a t-shirt

        Another entry submitted to us from a keen user of our remixed album art. This one comes from Dennie Macnamara from Belfast, Ireland. He says that the song Girls by the Sugababes is very popular in his country for a number of good reasons. Firstly, it's one of those anthems that girls like to

      • Cold As Ice - Foreigner
        17/01/13
        The cover of this 1977 single from soft rock legendeña¹ Foreigner looks like something that a college student has hand-drawn during their lunchbreak. It does appear to show the band members, but in almost cartoon form. Why they are wearing long raincoats and are stood amongst some old-style leat

        16/01/13
        Buxom British babe Adele's 2011 song Set Fire To The Rain is something of an enigma. The cover for the single shows Adele but gives no indicate of how the act of setting fire to rain is to be carried out. When it comes to setting fire to rain, then this is a bit of a thorny problem. On Earth a

        15/01/13
        The Madonna song Rain was released in 1993 and was taken from her album Erotica. The album was published together with a book called Sex which showed Ms Ciccone in many shades of undress but this is not reflected in the cover for this single. The cover for Rain has a picture from Ms Ciccone singin

        Rihanna's 2007 hit Umbrella was arguably the biggest selling song of 2007 in most countries around the world. The chorus's refrain of 'you can stand under by umber ella, ella, ella, hey, hey, hey, under my umber ella, ella, ella, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey' marks what must be the p

        As titles for songs go, the 1990 hit from Blue Pearl called Naked In The Rain is like a red rag to a bull when it comes to possible twists on the cover art for the single. The original cover shows a blue pearl, which is one of the rarest colours of pearl. The pearl is sat amidst some material whic

        Tink Delorio writes to us from New York (birthplace of Mariah Carey). He says:

      • Chiquitita - ABBA
        10/01/13
        The cover from this 1978 single by Swedish songsters ABBA has their pictures on it. That ticks a great big box. But there remains one enormous problem with the cover and with the single itself. The cover does not explain what the fück a Chiquitita actually is. The lyrics are veiled in mystery wi

        09/01/13
        Three flashes in a row, anyone might start believing that there was some logic in the apparently random songs picked to appear. Anyone would be largely wrong. The cover for this 1983 song by Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel fails on the same front that many other covers do. Firstly, the band membe

        07/01/13
        Whilst we are in the realm of the Britannic majesty of Queen, there is one more song that is just gagging to have a cover that reflects it's double-entendre if not triple or quadruple-entendre title and that is Flash. Recently re-popularized by the film Ted, the song is the theme tune to the 1

In this case A most exquisitely stands for ass and even British pop legends Queen picked up on the irony of their choice of songs for this double A side and pl

        It's always nice to receive a submission from someone new. This one comes courtesy of Reg Splineby of Grimsby, England. Reg tells us that Samantha Fox was a 'page 3' model in England in the 1980s. Apparently this means that she posed topless for one of the national newspapers. Aft

        02/01/13
        "Strike A Pose". Those were the instructions that Madonna gave us in her 1990 single Vogue. On the cover we see Ms Ciccone striking some kind of pose, though one which most visibly suggest that she is suffering from some kind of back pain. The video for Vogue is much more true to the co

        This must be one of the oldest songs we've remixed here at AllBum.Art. Three At A Table For Two was sung by forces darling Doris Day in 1940. The original cover sees Ms Day smiling sweetly, but where is the table, and who is the interloper making the company a crowd? The remix, quite vividly

        Ooooh, what a feelin'! When your Dancing On The Ceiling. Too right. A feeling that any second you will fall off and you will hit your head on the floor. But that doesn't seem to deter Mr Richie from encouraging us to join in this rather pointless pass-time. The cover of this 1986 single (

      • In The Navy - Village People
        16/12/12
        "They want you, they want you, they want you as a new ree-kroot!" Who could forget the strains of this 1979 song from the Village People. In The Navy you can sail the seven seas. You can put your mind at ease. You can do all this in costumes ranging from a builder to a cowboy to an Apa

      • Christmas Rappin' - Kurtis Blow
        15/12/12
        Can you believe that Kurtis Blow released this single in 1979. It is said by some people to be the first rap song ever released on a major record label. Whatever the true story, Christmas Rappin' is one of those songs that is always on the radio through the Holiday season. The cover for Mr Bl

      • Christmas Wrapping - The Waitresses
        14/12/12
        'Tis the season to be jolly, being December, so time to return to the Holiday theme with this 1981 classic from The Waitresses. In the song, Christmas Wrapping, the waitresses appear to have forgotten something and call around at the shop to get it (cranberry sauce or some such necessity). Wh

      • The Wedding Album - Duran Duran
        13/12/12
        This album art from the 1993 album by British rocksters Duran Duran very much plays to the title of the album which is 'The Wedding Album'. The photos on the cover are most definitely taken at a wedding of some kind, though they appear to be much older than the album itself, looking as if

      • My Old Piano - Diana Ross
        12/12/12
        Ah, the old piano of Ms Diana Ross. Probably worth a fortune. But alas, it does not appear on the cover of this 1980 single by the erstwhile Ms Ross. What can have happened to it? Perhaps the piano in question is in the photograph that has been used for the cover of the single, but that the artwor

      • Hanging On The Telephone - Blondie
        11/12/12
        What is it with Ms Debbie Harry and her band Blondie that they feel the need to sing songs that are so often connected with telephony apparatus. In this 1978 song, we find Ms Harry 'Hanging On The Telephone'. And once again, the person responsible for putting together the artwork for the

      • Call Me - Spagna
        10/12/12
        What would you know? Blondie were not the only band to have a hit with a song called Call Me in the 1980s. Italian pop princess (or weirdo by the look of her) Spagna (short for Spaghetti with Lasagna apparently) had a song of the very same name. It seems rather possible that the people responsibl

      • Call Me - Blondie
        09/12/12
        Despite it still being December, the Christmas theme has been temporarily paused to deal with lots of songs to do with telephones. This 1980 song from New York new wave popsters Blondie is called Call Me. Not 'maybe' but definitely. The cover sees Debbie Harry (later called Deborah Harol

      • Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepson
        08/12/12
        Was this the best (selling) song of 2012? Was this the most popular song of 2012? Who knows? Someone does! Carly Rae Jepson's epic pop song Call Me Maybe was certainly heard on every radio station across the country, even those who only play country, such was it's popularity. The cove

      • Last Christmas - Wham!
        07/12/12
        As it's December, the Holiday theme is continuing right on with another of those songs that only comes out at this time of year. Last Christmas by British group Wham! sees George Michael and his buddy rueing the fact that last year they gave their hearts to someone or other, but the next day t

      • Merry Christmas - Mariah Carey
        06/12/12
        Mariah Carey's 1994 album 'Merry Christmas' contains, amongst other songs, probably the most famous (and some would argue the most annoying) Holiday hit, 'All I Want For Christmas Is You'. The opening strains of 'Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding, Ding Ding Ding

      • White Christmas - Bing Crosby
        05/12/12
        Apparently, White Christmas as sung by Mr Bing Crosby is the best selling single of all time. There could be many reasons for this, for example:One thing that is clear though, is that unless you happen to like smiling crooners of the 1940s wearing holly for a bow tie, the cover of the single did no

      • The Christmas Song - Nat King Cole
        04/12/12
        As the Holiday season is fast approaching, it seems right to focus on seasonal songs, especially those that have stood the test of time. The Christmas Song, first recorded by Mr Nat King Cole in 1946 is one of those Christmas classics. Everyone knows the lyrics which revolve around Mr King Cole ro

      • Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree - Brenda Lee
        03/12/12
        Continuin' with the Christmas theme, this time it is the turn of that Holiday classic, Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree. Though many versions of the song have been recorded over the years, this particular artwork is taken from the 1957 version sung by Brenda Lee, which many consider to b

      • Let It Snow! - Michael Bublé
        02/12/12
        As Christmas approaches, attention is increasingly being turned to those old festive crackers. The cover for Canadian crooner Michael Bublé's 2003 EP 'Let It Snow!' has to be one of the least inventive pieces of album art for a Christmas song that has ever been produced. Remember t

      • (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear - Elvis Presley
        01/12/12
        (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear was a hit for Mr Elvis Presley in 1957 where it remained in the number 1 chart position for 7 weeks. The cover for the single features a happy and smiling Mr Presley holding up a teddy bear, with the clear intimation that Mr Presley himself is to be cuddled in the same f

      • Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) - Eurythmics
        30/11/12
        To be brutal, Annie Lennox the lead singer of the Eurythmics, has always had a face that would cause nightmares more than it would 'Sweet Dreams'; her scary, androgynous looks being more akin to salt and vinegar chips than smooth silky chocolate. There are, of course, those who like salt

      • Midas Touch - Midnight Star
        29/11/12
        It is great to receive submissions from people who are getting the hang of what AllBum.Art is all about. This one is from two ladies who call themselves 'Ms Holly Da Yin' and 'Ms Mary Ott'. They were rather bored by the cover for the 1986 cover of the single 'Midas Touch&#

      • White Wedding - Billy Idol
        28/11/12
        It is time to return once again to Mr Billy Idol, this time to his 1982 song 'White Wedding' again courtesy of Brent Gdzinski of Charleston, SC. There is some controversy over the meaning of the song but general agreement that being 'a nice day for a White Wedding' is less to do

      • Bad Girls - Donna Summer
        27/11/12
        Donna Summer's 1979 disco classic 'Bad Girls' was supposedly inspired after one of Donna's assistants was stopped by a police officer who thought she was a prostitute. How such a mistake could have been made is unknown, however the cover of the single shows Donna leaning against

      • Divinyls - Divinyls
        26/11/12
        Australian band Divinyls released their self-titled album in 1991. They are probably most famous for their song 'I Touch Myself' which reached number 1 in their home country and number 4 in the US Billboard Top 100. Both the cover of the single 'I Touch Myself' and of their alb

      • Hot In The City - Billy Idol
        25/11/12
        Originally released in 1982 but a bigger hit when re-released in 1987, Billy Idol's 'Hot In The City' was also used in the feature film 'Big'. It seems reasonable to presume, from the cover, that Mr Idol was indeed rather warm as he is not wearing any shirt. The picture of

      • On The 6 - Jennifer Lopez
        24/11/12
        The cover of Jennifer Lopez's (J-Lo to her fans) 1999 album 'On The 6' features none other than Ms Lopez herself kneeling on a cream colored sofa in a tight fitting t-shirt and skimpy gold shorts. One can't help wondering whether Ms Lopez got the idea for the gold shorts from Ms

      • Feels Like I'm In Love - Kelly Marie
        23/11/12
        Although this cover has been filed under '1980s singles', the actual album art that has been modernized is from the 2006 'Best of' album which also happens to have the same name as Kelly Marie's most famous single, 'Feels Like I'm In Love'.

      • Chic - Chic
        22/11/12
        The cover for Chic's imaginatively titled 1977 debut album 'Chic' has on its cover two sultry looking ladies blowing referee's whistles. The ladies concerned are typical of the disco divas of the time being in their twenties and having long hair. What they are wearing is unknow

      • Power - Ice-T
        21/11/12
        The cover for Ice-T's album 'Power' is already one of the sexier covers around and caused a stir at the time. According to WikiPedia:
        The album cover, photographed by Glen E. Friedman, was the subject of controversy upon its original release, due to the provocative pose of Darle

      • Spacer - Sheila & B. Devotion
        20/11/12
        French band, Sheila & B. Devotion (sometimes mistakenly called 'Sheila B Devotion') hit the charts in 1979 with the disco classic 'Spacer'. The song has since been sampled extensively by, for example, Alcazar in their hit 'Crying at the Discotheque'. The original

        19/11/12
        Nothing too rude to get us kicked off on the in the whole festive vibe, but in time for Christmas, here is an alternative remix of cover artwork for the single, Frosty The Snowman. The picture of the lady sitting on Frosty's knee used here was taken from the front cover of a magazine called �
