Garbage are, apparently, Only Happy When It Rains. We can only imagine that it may have been raining when they produced their original single front cover artwork as, other than the pink coloring, it is not that happy. On the remix are a number of people who seem happy when it rains. One of them is a babe who seems to like going for a walk in the rain, and the others are some old dudes who like watching her go for a walk in the rain. Umbrella!
If ever there should be an obvious piece of cover artwork, it's for Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off by Joe Nichols. Surely the cover should show a babe who has been drinking tequila whose clothes have fallen off? No, the original artwork just shows Mr Nichols lounging around. The remix shows a babe... who has been drinking... whose clothes have fallen off. Could it possibly have been any more simple than that? Margarita!
It's a Watcher's Point Of View (Don't Cha Think)? That is what PM Dawn are asking. To illustrate this, their original single front cover artwork they show us the sea at sunset (or is it sunrise) with the band's name engraved showing outer space. On the remix we see a babe walking down the street and over her left shoulder a guy has the watcher's point of view, with the name of the band suitably engraved over the whole scene. It seems that her dress is very see-through, and although our view shows this, you have to wonder what he is staring at. Pink!
Album Covers, Albums Of The 1980s, Single Covers, Singles Of The 1980s, Outdoors, Public, Safe For WorkTeena Marie tells us that she is Naked To The World. But on the original cover artwork for her album and single of the same name, she is clearly fully clothed, not naked. And where is the world to be found? On the remix is a babe who is naked and what's more, she is standing in front of a large crowd of people who we shall, for the sake of this remix, call the world at large. Unlike the original artist, she is then naked to the world, and sanity has been restored. Pavement!
What is on show, when You Showed Me, what was it that was shown? On the original single front cover artwork by Salt 'N' Pepa, the band members all seem to be looking at something, but what is it that they are being shown? On the remix is a guy giving a thumbs-up, presumably for the busty mature babe next to him whose outfit shows plenty to start with. Maybe she showed him in more detail which is why he is happy and smiling. Truth!
What happens When You're Gone? According to the original single front cover artwork by Bryan Adams Featuring Melanie C, the answer is very blurry, and may or may not involve trailers or trains (it is far to indistinct to be able to tell). On the remix things become clearer as when you're gone, a babe wearing naught more than a long coat and high heels, stands by the roadside pining for your return. That much is definitely not blurry. Away!
Album Covers, Albums Of The 1980s, Single Covers, Singles Of The 1980s, Outdoors, Public, Safe For WorkFisherman's Blues was both an album and a single for The Waterboys back in the late 1980s. The original front cover artwork shows the band members playing their instruments. Maybe they are playing the blues. Maybe they are fishermen. On the remix, a babe wearing a blue bikini stands at a fishing dock. No doubt the fishermen who have to to to sea get the blues that they can't stand around and ogle. Cast off!
Album Covers, Albums Of The 2010s, Single Covers, Singles Of The 2010s, Outdoors, Public, Safe For WorkTo The Sea is both the name of a single and an album by Jack Johnson as we keep the seaside theme going. On the original front cover, someone has made a strange construction which, it is just possible, is some kind of mechanism for getting to the sea. On the remix, no contraptions are necessary as we find ourselves already at the sea, sharing a splash of water with a bikini clad babe. Wave!
Is there any kind of single artwork that is less interesting than a black cover with just the name of the song and artists listed in white. That is what Mary J Blige Featuring Diddy & Lil Wayne managed to achieve on the cover of Someone To Love Me (Naked). On the remix is a babe who is taking flowers to someone she loves, and she is doing so naked. That is far more appropriate than the original black and white effort. Daisy!
It's good that Jaheim has organized things so that if there is a problem he will be there Just In Case. There is is on the original single front cover artwork with his bandana and silver chain. Do you feel comforted by this? Or would you prefer to be with the babes on the remix who are carrying what looks like a case of beer. What is just in the case might be beer, what is just outside the case are two naked babes on a sunny beach. You can choose.
