Time for another Halloween remix what with it being October 31 and all. Tonight could well be The Night You Murdered Love, and that is what ABC sing about. The original cover artwork shows the band members looking very new romantic but still well and truly alive. The remix shows a babe in a graveyard. It is not clear if she is the murderer, or the murdered but she will catch her death of cold either way. Grave!
We always like to bring you something special for Halloween. This year it is the turn of Whodini and his spooky song, Freaks Come Out At Night. The original single cover artwork is lackluster, with the only indication of anything spooky being the fact that the words Whodini appears to have been written in blood, perhaps. On the remix we find a babe who is very freaky, and who has come out at night, out of her dress that is. Dark!
Bob Geldof deserves some points for the original front cover artwork of his album Sex, Age & Death, as it seems to depict someone potentially in the throes of sex. At it is a person, they must have an age, so two out of three. On the remix we find a babe who is in a graveyard and so fulfills the death part. As a person she also has an age, so that's also two out of three. She is sexy, so maybe that makes two and a half out of three. Match AllBum.Art!
You might not immediately associate Undercover Of The Night by The Rolling Stones to be a Halloween Hit but then if you think about it, being undercover of the night is exactly where ghouls and spooks hang out. On the original single front cover there is not much more than the famed logo of the tongue and lips. On the remix we find two vampire babes using the cover of the night to eat each other while resting in a coffin. Obviously!
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 know that dancing with the devil can lead to boogieing with Beelzebub and you wouldn't want that now would you? Lucifer!
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 along some spookily dark railroad tracks. Behind her are the lights of a train which does appear to be more ghost-like. All aboard!
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 she is pointing a great big gun at someone or something, thankfully not at us. Why it is raining purple raindrops is not clear, perhaps this is on another planet. Alien!
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 members. On the remix we find a babe whose car appears to have broken down. We know this as she is attempting a push start. If we may offer her some advice, it may have been more sensible to do this wearing clothes and more sensible shoes than high heels (especially in the snow). Just sayin' is all.
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 we find a babe who is being tapped on the shoulder by a skeleton and is surely going to be in fear for the rest of the night. Fearsome!
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't creepy enough, on the remix we find a babe creeping down some stairs looking for all the world like a vampire with her blood red lips. We aren't sure if all female vampires wear the same outfit as her but if they do, then maybe getting bitten wouldn't be that bad after all. Canine!
