Is he telling the truth when Johan Jones says to the world the I Dig Chicks? If we examine the original single front cover artwork then perhaps we might agree with him, as it shows four chicks of Mr Jones's era being hoisted into the air by a digger. On the remix, little has really changed other than that the babes have been updated and the digger has been replaced by a monster truck. The babes are all wearing cowboy boots which is odd attire for a jazz record, but who are we to argue. Hard hat!
Don't even get us started on the name of the band when it's called Andy + The Lamboy Versus Dreamgate. What is a lamboy? And why are they versing anyone? The original single front cover artwork for Now We Are Free (Theme From Gladiator) shows a colosseum at sunset (or is it sunrise?) The remix reflects more on the notion of a gladiator rather than the venue where they might perform, and shows a babe standing in a gladiatorial outfit with a big sword. Don't get too close or she'll cut you to pieces. Roman!
She's a Killer. That, at least, is what Adamski claims. The claim is made against a backdrop of a dog, angled at 45 degrees to the vertical (and to the horizontal as it goes) and some squashed text naming the artist and the title of the track. That is the original single front cover artwork. On the remix is a babe who is a killer for real. She is lethal with her gun, and a killer looker too. Don't get distracted, as if you do, you're gonna die at her hands. Painful!
She's So Unusual, Cyndi Lauper, that is. Of that there could be little doubt. As if to illustrate her unusualness, on the original album cover artwork we can see Ms Lauper kicking off her heels and dancing in one of her crazy dresses. On the remix is a babe who is, potentially, more unusual than that. She is wearing blue scales, is carrying a ray gun and has two antennae on her head. From this angle, we can only hope that she is a she, but we know that she is so unusual. Cadet!
Another remix for The Wedding Present, and to day it is the turn of their single Silver Shorts. On the original front cover artwork is the number 4 and what looks like the background to some bad pixelated 1980s video game but nothing silver, and no shorts. What is it that they were thinking about when they put that one together? On the remix is a babe wearing, guess what... silver shorts. Could it have been any easier to remix this cover? No!
Easy Tiger! That is what this album by Ryan Adams is entitled. This love of endangered animals is illustrated by Mr Adams sitting on a bench, smoking a cigarette. Everything is in black and white, except for his digital watch face which for some mysterious reason is green. On the remix we find a babe painted to look like a tiger who is crawling up (or is it down) some stairs. She had better be careful not to rub that paint off on the woodwork. Easy now!
Here are Peabo Bryson And Roberta Flack and Tonight I (or they) Celebrate My (or their) Love for you (or maybe for each other?) At least on the original single front cover artwork, they do seem to be enjoying each other's company. On the remix we find a bride, dressed in white, who seems to be ready to celebrate her love in the age honored fashion of singing this old 80s song while holding a bunch of flowers. Rose!
We have to give credit where it's due to Altered Images. The original album front cover artwork for Pinky Blue, other than the small picture of the band in the bottom right hand corner (having pink and blue confetti dropped on them), is very pink, and blue. This color scheme has been carried over to the remix where we see a babe wearing a mask with ears, who is nothing if not very pink and very blue, with a little purple here and there for good measure. She may also have her bra on back to front. Crimson!
Where The Hood At? That is the question which DMX is asking. The original single front cover artwork shows Mr Simmons (for that is his name) leaning out of a window, looking for hood. The remix is maybe what he was looking for, as it's none other than Red Riding Hood, who is better known to her friends as hood. And what is it that she is wearing? Why, a hood of course, but very little else. It must have been a hot day in the forest. What big eyes you have...
Does the hand-drawn blob on the cover of Bruno Mars Bar'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 bird is replaced by a different kind of bird, this time one carrying a grenade launcher. Now that's more like it (whatever 'it' is in this context). Bang!
