human league mirror man remixhuman league mirror man 1It's not often that we get to use the same joke twice when remixing the cover art of singles and albums but the remix of Mirror Man by The Human League contains the same pun as a similarly named song by a certain Mr Jackson. What pun is that, you ask? Well that concerning the deceptiveness of a view, shattered by the reflection in a mirror. Deep!

housemartins five get over excited remixhousemartins five get over excited 1Another remix provided by AllBum.Art regular Wilf Hooton of Hull, UK. Wilf has provided us with a remix of Five Get Over Excited by The Housemartins. Wilf tells us:
There wasn't even five bods on the original!

But the remix does have five 'bods' and they seem to have gotten so excited that their clothes have fallen off. Thanks Wilf, keep 'em coming. Retro!

Teenage Kicks - The Undertones

the undertones teenage kicks remixthe undertones teenage kicks 1It seems quite likely that when preparing the artwork for their single Teenage Kicks, that The Undertones had run out of money. Has there ever been a less inspiring piece of cover art? At least it contains the name of the band and the title of the song. But where is a picture of the band, or of some image that appertains to teenagers getting their kicks? On the remix, that's where. Boot!

Sunrise - Simply Red

simply red sunrise remixsimply red sunrise 1Summer is finally here so it's surely time for lots of sunny remixes and some more artwork to add to our summer sizzlers category. This one doesn't quite make it into the sizzling section but instead we find Simply Red singing about Sunrise. And on the cover we find the lead singer of the band standing in a scene reminiscent of a sunrise. So full points and no need for a remix, right? Wrong!

Head Over Heels - ABBA

abba head over heels remixabba head over heels 1This is not the first time that the AllBum.Art team have remixed a song called Head Over Heels, after all it makes a good topic for a remix. It is also not the first time we have remixed the cover art for a track by Swedish songsters Abba. On the original cover, the band members are distinctly normal looking. On the remix is a babe who has her head over her heels but not in the way that you might expect. Twister!

Street Player - Chicago

chicago street player remixchicago street player 1Chicago can get very cold in the winter. Why do we say that? Well because it kind of explains the remix of Street Player by Chicago. The original cover sees the band smiling and looking very chic in a 1970s kind of way. The remixed cover shows a babe who is clearly very adept at playing the street and given how cold it is outside, then this must be Chicago in the winter. You see, it all makes some kind of sense now. Doubtful!

On The Wings Of Love - Jeffrey Osborne

jeffrey osborne on the wings of love 2jeffrey osborne on the wings of love 1When Jeffrey Osborne sings On The Wings Of Love, what springs to your mind? It might well be Mr Osborne in soft focus wearing a brown sweater and gold neck chain. It might be. For us, we think of an angel. And not in a sweater and neck chain, but in white lingerie and high heels. And wouldn't you know it, that's just what the remixed cover art shows. What a coincidence. Snap!

Self - Fuzzbox

fuzzbox self remixfuzzbox self 1You know we are fans of the occasional angel, here at AllBum.Art. So when Brian Charlesworth from Birmingham, UK, send us this remix of Self by Fuzzbox, we were only too pleased to receive it. The original cover appears to show the lead singer of the band in an angel costume. The remix shows a similarly self-obsessed babe in a similar angel costume. The wings are still intact but hey, where's the tunic gone. Mystery!

Conga - Miami Sound Machine

miami sound machine conga remixmiami sound machine conga 1Those crazy Latin beats want to make you shake your feet and do the Conga. But what is the Conga? Well the Latin influences are clear on the original cover artwork from the Miami Sound Machine, but there's no guide on how to participate in this crazy Latin dance. The remix shows a group participating in what has to be said to be a rather lackluster and unenthusiastic Conga but there may be a good reason for this. Ancient!

Forever Autumn - Vigrass And Osborne

vigrass osborne forever autumn remixvigrass osborne forever autumn 1Hmmm... So I've heard the title of the song, Forever Autumn, somewhere, but I don't remember Vigrass and Osborne. Yeah, that's what we thought too. Forever Autumn is a song from the musical War Of The Worlds, which is more closely associated with Justin Heyward. But no, the original was sung by obscure duo Paul and Gary. The original cover shows the duo looking melancholy and musical in a 1970s kind of way. The remix shows... well, look closely and work it out for yourself. Autumnal!
