bert jansch bleak midwinter remixbert jansch bleak midwinter 1As 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, well, a lot bleaker and a lot more wintery. Who the girl is we do not know but the winter is looking very bleak for her, standing around in the snow in nothing but silver high heel boots. Poor girl.

It's Christmas Time - Status Quo

status quo xmas time remixstatus quo xmas time 1Not content with his very own Status Quo week, Mark Hodson of England has supplied us with yet another remix of a cover by his favorite band. The original cover of It's Christmas Time sees the band hanging up their electric guitars on a tree. The remix shows pin-up queen Bettie Page hanging up something else on the tree. And wouldn't you know it, she's gone and forgotten to get dressed (other than for a furry Xmas hat!)

ronettes sleigh ride remixronettes sleigh ride 1Ring-a-ling-a-ling... This version of the Holiday hit Sleigh Ride comes to us courtesy of The Ronettes. We have had to use a little poetic license for this remix, as there is no original cover to remix. So we have invented one! The original shows the band in their seasonal skirts, sitting on a wall in the snow. The remix shows an altogether different scene with a girl in the altogether sitting on a sleigh ready to ride. Any offers to pull her? Giddy up!

Step Into Christmas - Elton John

elton john step into xmas remixelton john step into xmas 1Continuing the festive frolics, here's a remix of Elton John's classic Christmas choon entitled Step Into Christmas. There are a number of original covers for this but our remix focuses on one that is, to put it least, a bit lacking in festive cheer. It's just Mr Dwight, and that's about it. Our remix shows a babe who has not only stepped into Christmas but has obviously had too much Christmas cheer as she has slipped and fallen down on her ass. And for some reason, she is naked except for a Christmas hat and a pair of high heel boots!

Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town - Bruce Springsteen

bruce springsteen santa claus remixbruce springsteen santa claus 1Just how many cover versions of songs is it possible to make cover remixes of? Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town was originally recorded in 1934 but this remix is of the 1978 version by Bruce Springsteen (no stranger to AllBum.Art). Instead of Santa, a reindeer, a hippo and a bird singing in a bath (yes, that's what the original is), the remix shows Santa checking out if a young lady had been naughty or nice. By the looks of it she is both, which must leave Mr Claus in quite a quandary as to what to do with her. Any suggestions?

Winter Wonderland - Aretha Franklin

aretha winter wonderland remixaretha winter wonderland 1Another of those Holiday songs that has been sung by a cast of thousands, Winter Wonderland is a seasonal classic. This version is sung by Aretha Franklin and the cover for the song shows Ms Franklin in a suitably festive outfit. Our remix of the cover is also suitably festive and relays more of the fun of being in a winter wonderland. Playing in the snow, getting cold. Well you would wearing no sweater now wouldn't you?

O Tannenbaum - Various Artists

o tannenbaum remixo tannenbaum 1The 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. Instead of the winter scene on the Rhine, you can see instead a naked Christmas tree - naked that is except for a single bauble. Any offers to help decorate it?

sleigh ride spice girls remixsleigh ride spice girls 1Ho, ho, ho, and here we go for the first of the holiday remixes. This song by the Spice Girls is just one of the many recordings of Sleigh Ride. This one was the B-Side of their single 2 Become 1 which was a Christmas hit in 1996. Officially there is no cover but there was a promo released with a separate cover for this single. We've removed that cover and left just one of the girls with her sleigh. Now go ride it!

The Red Shoes - Kate Bush

What is it with people that they aren't happy to have sexy AllBum.Art to brighten up their music collection? Following a complaint that a lot of the stuff we remix is not necessarily current chart hits, we then got a letter from Joe McGonagall of Alberta, Canada. Joe says:
You guys are always using very young women and girls in your remixes. How about some more mature ladies for us more mature music fans, eh?

That's not actually a bad idea Joe, even for a Canadian. This remix of the album Red Shoes by Kate Bush has two versions. One using a younger model, and one using a more mature lady. Let us know which you prefer. And we will try not to just use cute young babes in future remixes, though it's fair to say that even older gentlemen (and even Canadians) are as happy to reminisce on what could have been rather than focussing on what might be? Eh?

Drive - The Cars

cars drive 1cars drive remixcars drive extra remix
Drive by The Cars is one of those songs that every truck driver should have available to play at a second's notice on the cassette player in their cab. And cab drivers should have available to play at a second's notice on the crappy old CD player in their dashboard. The original cover, nice as it is, shows The Cars. Our remixes show two alternative views. Firstly a chick who is obviously waiting for her passenger to show up and is enjoying some sun until they do. The second has a chick who is ready to go - in more ways than two!
