Original Cover Artwork of Eric Clapton I Shot The Sheriff Sometimes the name of an album or single inspires a remixed cover. Sometimes it is the original cover itself which demands a revised version to be produced. Sometimes, as is the case here, it is a random picture found whilst innocently trawling the Internet which forms the inspiration itself. Let's first look at the original cover which shows Eric Clapton standing with a guitar, and a beard. In good 1970s cover fashion the name of the song, I Shot The Sheriff, and of course Mr Clapton's name appear on the cover too. That's pretty much all there is to it and in itself the cover, or title of the song or artists would be insufficient to inspire any kind of album art remake.

Original Cover Artwork of Eric Clapton I Shot The Sheriff Remix The inspiration in this case came from the picture that replaces that of Mr Clapton. In his place is a young lady, in a flimsy dress and high heels, carrying a whopping great gun. There are of course other songs which this picture could have been used to remix the cover of, but the question that shot immediately to mind was, 'who is it that she is looking to shoot?' The answer which immediately came to mind was, 'the sheriff, of course'. There are lots of other possibilities, and it is possible, of course, that she is just a model posing with the gun for publicity purposes (a bad move following recent events) and wasn't intending to shoot anyone. But artistic license permits all kinds of extrapolation and thus this particular remade cover was born. Following her shooting of the sheriff, she escaped by hiding the gun and her clothes (which had gunpowder residue on them) in a garbage can and running naked to her hideout several miles away. Sadly, no pictures of this part of her story are available.

Singin' In The Rain - Gene Kelly

Original Cover Artwork of Singin In The Rain Do de do doo, doo de do de do doody... Few people on the planet Earth are unfamiliar with this classic song, especially the version sung by Gene Kelly. Singin' In The Rain is the song that has come to represent the state of being happy-go-lucky whilst walking around outside and being drenched by pouring precipitation. The song was written in 1929 but became famous in 1952 when it was the title track to the film of the same name. There wasn't really a cover for the single as such, but there has been a cover produced for the DVD of the film that has been adapted to act as a cover for the song. In it we see three characters from the film, in raincoats and with umbrellas who are happily splashing their way through the rain.

Cover Artwork Remix of Singin In The Rain The original cover is now over 60 years old (or at least the film is) and so it is rife for modernization. The modernized cover has done away with the three characters from the film, who have been replaced by a single lady (single in this sense meaning that there is just one of her, as it is likely that a lady with her assets and gregariousness must have a boyfriend). The lady is also wearing a raincoat and has an umbrella but unlike Mr Kelly and his ilk, she is also wearing a pair of kinky high heeled yellow boots, a yellow PVC thong, and, it would appear, little else. What seems clear is that she is happy in this outfit and that should it begin to rain, she would remain upbeat though no doubt would get a little cold if the temperature dropped too low.

Dancing On The Ceiling - Lionel Richie

Original Cover Artwork of Lionel Richie Dancing On The Ceiling Ooooh, what a feelin'! When your Dancing On The Ceiling. Too right. A feeling that any second you will fall off and you will hit your head on the floor. But that doesn't seem to deter Mr Richie from encouraging us to join in this rather pointless pass-time. The cover of this 1986 single (and album of the same name) sees Mr Richie in a white suit with his trademark black mustache looking a little as if he has already fallen and hurt his head. Or perhaps he is not smiling as the party is now over and he is having to sit on the floor. Or maybe his frizzy hair got damaged in all the falling off. Either or other way, he could have tried to smile a bit.

Cover Artwork Remix of Lionel Richie Dancing On The Ceiling The lady on the revised album (and single of the same name) cover, unlike Mr Richie, does appear to be dancing on the ceiling, with her legs very definitely up in the air. Sensibly she seems to be propping herself up on the floor to avoid falling and hurting her head. Mind you, in those heels, she would be prone to falling over even if she was dancing on the floor and not the ceiling.

Oh, hang on a cotton picking minute, someone has just turned the picture sideways haven't they? It's just a picture of a girl sat on some stairs that has been rotated. Still, she is pretty, in a sideways sort of a way and unlike Mr Richie, at least she is smiling.

The Wedding Album - Duran Duran

Original Cover Artwork of Duran Duran Wedding Album This album art from the 1993 album by British rocksters Duran Duran very much plays to the title of the album which is 'The Wedding Album'. The photos on the cover are most definitely taken at a wedding of some kind, though they appear to be much older than the album itself, looking as if they are from the 1950s rather than the 1990s. Then again, perhaps people in Britain still cling to some outdated traditions (such as 'chips and fish') as with their Canadian brethren. In fact, it could very much be that the pictures are from 1990s Canada, as they look as if they could be from another age gone by and lost in the mists of some lakes or something of that nature.

Cover Artwork Remix of Duran Duran Wedding Album It is well known that in their heyday Duran Duran attracted many an attractive lady or two to their concerts and later back stage. It is fitting that the revised version of the cover for their Wedding Album contains pictures of those kind of ladies (whatever 'those kind' are) dressed variously, or undressed variously, in wedding outfits of various kinds. Whether or not lead singer Simon Le Bon would be attracted to ladies of this kind back then, back stage or anywhere else is unknown, however it seems unlikely that Mr Le Bon, being an English gentleman (though with a strange French name) would deny any of these ladies some chips and fish if they asked for it (which they seem to be doing).

(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear - Elvis Presley

Original Cover Artwork of Teddy Bear Elvis Presley (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear was a hit for Mr Elvis Presley in 1957 where it remained in the number 1 chart position for 7 weeks. The cover for the single features a happy and smiling Mr Presley holding up a teddy bear, with the clear intimation that Mr Presley himself is to be cuddled in the same fashion. Or perhaps it is meant to insinuate that Mr Presley is small and furry. Or that when he gets older he will become big and angry and attack tourists in the forests of Canada. As to the latter, we shall never know as sadly Mr Presley sadly passed away before he had a chance to move to Canada to live in the forest.

Cover Artwork Remix of Teddy Bear Elvis Presley Mr Presley would surely approve of the revised version. Be honest now, how many hot blooded males who live in Memphis, would not like to be this particular girl's teddy bear? Although, having said that, the way she seems to be dragging it along behind her perhaps indicates a little disrespect for her furry friend. Or perhaps she is is just very tired, and is on her way to bed and hasn't got the strength to carry him properly. It is clear that she is heading to the bedroom, as her outfit (or lack of it) would clearly be unsuitable for any other room of the house, or outdoors for that matter.

Bad Girls - Donna Summer

Original Cover Artwork of Donna Summer Bad Girls Donna Summer's 1979 disco classic 'Bad Girls' was supposedly inspired after one of Donna's assistants was stopped by a police officer who thought she was a prostitute. How such a mistake could have been made is unknown, however the cover of the single shows Donna leaning against a lamp-post in typical 1970s disco garb. Presumably the police officer in question had never been to a discotheque of the time and was unfamiliar with the idea that just because a woman is wearing stockings, high heels and a skirt that is split up to the thigh does not imply that she is a prostitute but just a regular 'girl about town'.

Cover Artwork Remix of Donna Summer Bad Girls Of course the title of Ms Summer's song is 'Bad Girls'. Note the emphasis on the plural. Yet, on the cover there is only the one girl - Ms Summer herself - in the picture. As previously stated, the fact that the clothes she is wearing are typical of the time does not really do the title justice. In this updated version, the police officer has gone and in his place are two very bad girls, in fact they are so naughty that they are standing by Ms Summer's lamp-post but, it would seem, naked other than some high heels and a hat. It is now pretty certain that if the police officer were to see them, his supposition that they were prostitutes would be much more accurate and in any case, being naked in a public place would surely call for their arrest regardless.

Power - Ice-T

Original Cover Artwork of Ice T Power The cover for Ice-T's album 'Power' is already one of the sexier covers around and caused a stir at the time. According to WikiPedia:
The album cover, photographed by Glen E. Friedman, was the subject of controversy upon its original release, due to the provocative pose of Darlene Ortiz, Ice-T's girlfriend at the time.

Ms Ortiz was obviously the one with the 'Power' given that she is stood holding a whip and although she hasn't gone for the full dominatrix outfit (the white slingshot bikini not being normal mistress clothing), you get the impression that she has the upper hand over the two hapless rappers.

Cover Artwork Remix of Ice T Power Time has moved on and Ms Ortiz is no longer Ice-T's girlfriend so the time is surely right for Ice to take back the power. Ms Ortiz has therefore been replaced by two similarly attired black beauties whose poses suggest that it is Ice-T that has the power now. With one flick of his wrists he would be nicely positioned between two topless busty babes.

Mind you, surrounded by those two, even Ice-T might find their powers of persuasion difficult to turn down!
