hughes corp rock the boat remixhughes corp rock the boat 1It seems that it's not only Mr Forrest who has a problem understanding what it takes to Rock The Boat. The original version by the Hues Corporation has an equally uninspiring cover showing the three members of the band. Although this is a good start, it is a poor end and what is really needed is a couple of hot chicks steering the boat. And guess what? That is exactly what the remixed cover shows. Our love is like a ship on the ocean!

Rock The Boat - Forrest

forrest rock the boat remixforrest rock the boat 1In 1982 Forrest told us to Rock The Boat. But the cover of Mr Forrest's single would not rock anyone's boat, that is unless they happened to like beardy guys wearing dinner shirts and a false smile. What would rock the boat would be a couple of hot chicks steering it wearing much less, which is exactly what the remixed cover shows. Don't tip the boat baby!

Don't Turn Around - Aswad

aswad dont turn around 2aswad dont turn around 1Staying with the pictures of babes, in bikinis, on a beach we have remixed this rather obscure hit by reggae outfit Aswad. The cover for Don't Turn Around originally contained a picture of the band but in the remix it is a sexy babe on a beach in a bikini that you can see. What has this got to do with not turning around? Quite simple: she has a nice ass and set against the setting sun even if she did turn around it would probably not improve the vista.

On The Beach - Chris Rea

chris rea on the beach 2chris rea on the beach 1Yes, a return to bikini clad babes and summer songs is necessary. This single (and album of the same name) by Chris Rea does just that taking us On The Beach. But on Mr Rea's beach there is naught but an umbrella. On the remixed cover the beach is still relatively empty but there is now a cute young thing with no bikini top looking rather coy. You can see why - with only a small puff of wind she would be topless.

Smoke On The Water - Deep Purple

smoke on water purple remixsmoke on water purple 1What a fussy lot you are sometimes? Not only does Maark from South Africa complain that summer songs in August are not right if you live south of the Equator, but now Jessie Hendricks from Charleston SC says that where he lives, the defining feature of the summer months is that there's a constant mist. So just for Jessie, here's a remix of the 1973 Deep Purple song Smoke On The Water. Now can we please get back to babes on beaches in bikinis?

I Can't Stand The Rain - Eruption

eruption i cant stand the rain remixeruption i cant stand the rain 1We got an e-mail from Maark Klempe from South Africa who said that although it might be summer in the northern hemisphere, it was the middle of winter where he lived and that we shouldn't be so insensitive by publishing lots of new cover art for summery songs. So here, especially for Maark is a remix of Eruption's 1978 single I Can't Stand The Rain. You'll be wanting us to return to Christmas songs next...

Walking On Sunshine - Rockers Revenge

rockers revenge walking on sunshine remixrockers revenge walking on sunshine 1It's August and what could be more natural than digging out those good old summer songs and playing them loud whilst sitting around a pool drinking a cold beer. So remixing the covers of summer hits seems an equally suitable passtime. Here's a remix of 1982 song Walking On Sunshine by Rockers Revenge. The original cover is dull. The remix is much more summery. Now where's that beer?

Barbados - Typically Tropical

typically tropical barbados remixtypically tropical barbados 1What a refreshing find, that even in the 1970s there were designers around who could put a decent cover for a single together. This summery song from Typically Tropical has several covers but all of them show a babe on a beach in various states of undress. If this is what Barbados is like then book a ticket and get there now. The remix does one thing only, modernize the babe but otherwise it's a gold star and a string bikini to the original designers!

Fantasy Island - Tight Fit

tight fit fantasy island 2tight fit fantasy island 1Another great summer song, this time from little known British act Tight Fit. Why the remix, well easy. Kent in the 'looking for cool pictures department' found the picture of the awesome chick in the bikini and needed a cover to remix it with. Fantasy Island seemed the ideal choice as we all agreed that the chick concerned would definitely be present on any island that we could fantasize.

Summer In The City - The Lovin' Spoonful

lovin spoonful summer 2lovin spoonful summer 1Those summer songs keep on coming. This 1966 classic from The Lovin' Spoonful will be flooding out of radios from the East to the West coast as the sun beats down on the city streets. But the cover shows the band lazing on a sunny afternoon on a detatched stairway to nowhere. The remix shows what summer in the city should really look like: a hot chick in a tight leotard wearing a hat. Cool (literally)!
