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 in their bow ties, but not very wintery. On the first of our triple-play remix, we find a babe who is wearing highly inappropriate attire for the wintertime scene she finds herself in. On the second remix we find a babe who at least tried to dress warm but who seems to have had her furry coat come unbuttoned. Attempting!

Splish Splash - Bobby Darin

bobby darin splish splash 2bobby darin splish splash 1Splish 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 how he likes to bathe. On the remix we find a babe who seems to be wearing nothing more than a bath full of water and a pair of high heels. Spray!

(Seven Little Girls) Sitting In The Back Seat - The Avons

avons seven little girls remixavons seven little girls 1(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 confusing. Although the remix doesn't solve the seven girls on one seat issue, it does shows us a more close up view of the girls in question. They seem like a cheeky bunch. Fred!

Ginger Bread - Frankie Avalon

frankie avalon ginger bread 2frankie avalon ginger bread 1Whether 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 gingerbread, on account of the color of her hair which is about as gingery as it comes. It is nice of her to show us this but we could have worked that out without her taking all her clothes off. Revealed!

Short Fat Fannie - Larry Williams

larry williams short fat fannie remixlarry williams short fat fannie 1Larry 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 the remix solves this problem and we can see what Fannie looks like. Perhaps not surprisingly, she is short and rather chubby, just like Mr Williams suggested. Coherence!

Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On - Jerry Lee Lewis

jerry lee lewis whole lotta shakin remixjerry lee lewis whole lotta shakin 1We 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 we think invokes more of a view of there being lots of shakin' goin' on, as five babes dance naked on a sandy beach, presumably listening to the song. Is that a large (maybe empty now) bottle of moonshine in the background? It might explain their carefree abandon. Drunk!

Whole Lotta Woman - Marvin Rainwater

martin rainwater whole lotta woman remixmartin rainwater whole lotta woman 1A 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 woman, so much woman in fact that she nearly fills the whole remixed cover. Is this who Mr Rainwater was singing about? She does appear to come from the 1950s. Ancient!

Leaning On A Lamppost - George Formby

george formby leaning on a lamp post remixgeorge formby leaning on a lamp post 1As 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 Leaning On A Lamppost by George Formby. Actually we had never heard of the song either but the whole thing fitted like a hand in a glove. Smooth!

Footprints In The Show - Johnny Duncan And The Blue Grass Boys

johnny duncan footprints in the snow remixjohnny duncan footprints in the snow 1There 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 footprints either. The remix rectifies this second point as we find that there are many footprints in the snow and we can also see the babe who has made them. Chilling!

Suzy Snowflake - Rosemary Clooney

rosemary clooney suzy snowflake remixrosemary clooney suzy snowflake 1You 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. The remix suggests otherwise, and instead proposes that Suzy is a regular girl who just enjoys protecting her modesty with a snowflake. Who is right? Maybe we shall never know, or even care? Tally!
