pixies surfer rosa remixpixies surfer rosa 1We did laugh when the original cover of the Pixies' album Surfer Rosa was brought to our attention. It seems they were trying to pre-empt any remix by having a Spanish looking flamenco dancer stand topless amidst some religious symbolism. Nice try, but when we translated Surfer Rosa from Spanish into Japanese, and then from Japanese to Russian, then to Italian, back to Spanish, then to German, and eventually English, we found that it actually meant 'woman red clothes naked pose mountain'. So that's what the remix is. Spike!

Do You Really Want To Hurt Me - Culture Club

culture club do you want to hurt me remixculture club do you want to hurt me 1What have we here? On the original cover of Do You Really Want To Hurt Me by Culture Club we see some dude in heavy make-up and with dreadlocks. Most likely that would put him in the 'about to be hurt' category in many cities late at night. In the remix we see a babe who is all but crucified. Though she too is about to be hurt, she has a cheeky look that asks the question of whether you really want to do that to her. Answer!

I Made It Through The Rain - Barry Manilow

barry manilow i made it through the rain 2barry manilow i made it through the rain 1There was a time when it was totally unfashionable to listen to Barry Manilow. That time is still with us, but things can be improved with a decent remix. Or an indecent remix. Either way, this remix of I Made It Through The Rain replaces a rather grey and grainy picture of Mr Manilow with a babe who may have made it through the rain, but has accidentally sat under a bucket of water with holes in it. Splosh!

Sex On The Streets - Pizzaman

pizzaman sex on streets remixpizzaman sex on streets 1For such an obscure artist, it's odd that this is not the first remix for a track by Pizzaman. This time we find the mozzarella and tomato covered circular man singing about Sex On The Streets. The cover of the single may allude obtusely to the circular and tomato covering that Pizzaman might have, but where's the street and the sex? The remix sorts this out with far less need for culinary accompaniments. Oregano!

Crushed By The Wheels Of Industry - Heaven 17

heaven 17 crushed remixheaven 17 crushed 1New romantics Heaven 17 tell us that they are being Crushed By The Wheels Of Industry. It would seem that, on the original cover of the single, this meant taking a man in a flat cap and spraying him with orange and dark green paint. Perhaps that's what classes for being crushed. Not here though. In the remix, we see a man who is being badly crushed. By the wheels of industry? It's hard to tell because there's some fat woman sitting on him. Squashed!

To Know Him Is To Love Him - The Teddy Bears

teddy bears to know him is to love him remixteddy bears to know him is to love him 1To Know Him Is To Love Him. Matt here in the AllBum.Art design department seems to think that this song is written about him. But as Matt was not even born when The Teddy Bears wrote this song in 1958, we think he has ideas above his station. What can we say about the remix of the cover artwork that doesn't speak for itself? Well there's a teddy bear, and a girl getting to know him. If her name were Teddy, she'd be a Teddy bare, so then there would be two of them. Double!

In Public - Kelis

kelis in public 1 kelis in public 2 kelis in public remix
A rare triple-play, though Kelis is no stranger to the AllBum.Art web-site. This time we find Ms Rogers extolling the virtues of doing things in public. But on the original cover there is no sign of her exhibitionist tendencies. On the first remix we see a babe who appears to be undressing in public, though she hasn't got very far with it. In the second we see a babe in what looks like a theater, being very public about her exhibition. Golden!

Grease - Frankie Valli

frankie valli grease remixfrankie valli grease 1Grease, apparently, is the word. Or so says Frankie Valli. His smiling, fuzzy-haired face grinning out at us from the original cover of the single makes you wonder why grease is a special word at all, not just 'a' word, but 'the' word. The remix helps a little as we see that he is referring to the grease that seems to have come off the hand of someone helping a lost maiden to repair her car. Perhaps next time some overalls would come in handy. Plap!

Tennis Court - Lorde

lorde tennis court remixlorde tennis court 1The original cover of Tennis Court by Lorde scores very highly on the AllBum.Art table as it features both the artist, and the title of the song as we see Lorde standing on a tennis court - full marks! A remix is therefore unnecessary but at the same time entertaining as in the remix we see a babe who has been playing the age old game of 'strip tennis' where you have to take of an item of clothing each time you lose a set. It looks like she lost lots of sets. Love!

Khe Sanh - Cold Chisel

cold chisel khe sanh remixcold chisel khe sanh 1Mike Toohey wrote to us from Sydney, Australia with a suggestion for a remix. Mike tells us that Khe Sanh by Cold Chisel is about, 'rooting asian babes' and contains the line 'their legs were often open but their minds were always closed'. Mike challenged us to find a way to remix the original cover of the single which already alludes to the somewhat prostitutional nature of the situation in Vietnam in those days. In the remix we see an asian babe in an army uniform. Whether her mind is closed is not know but the other part of the lyric is true. That OK for you Mike? Undergrowth!
