What is is that Jim Diamond is trying to tell us on the cover of his single I Should Have Known Better? The dark broody blue coloring maybe suggest he should have thought about buying a better light bulb. Thankfully the remix helps us to answer this question as we find a babe who appears to be locked out of her car, no doubt calling a locksmith to help her get back in. And what should she have known better, well for one to keep her keys with her at all times, and for two, not to lock her car whilst she is only wearing stockings and heels. Indigo.
Now Paffendorf might think that by making the cover of their single Be Cool different shades of blue, that it somehow means that it reflects the notion of coolness. That may be how they see being cool. We see being cool as having a pretty babe in a snow covered forest who is using some of that snow to keep her body temperature low, though we think she should reconsider where she is applying it as the area of her body where she is daubing the snow is particularly sensitive, or so we are led to believe. Icy!
Brrr... it's a cold January day, one of those that makes you Shiver, or so says George Benson. On the cover of his single, though, he looks distinctly warm in his grey suit and blue shirt. On the remix we find someone who is much much colder, and is shivering away on a cold January morning on a footpath in the middle of a forest. The fact that she is wearing naught but her high heels is probably not helping her keep warm any. Silly girl!
What better way to begin 2016 than with a remix of a song about the New Year. And so we bring you Queen Of The New Year by Deacon Blue. On the original cover we find some kind of gold plated artistic rendering of something or other. On the remix we find a princess who is on her way to a New Year party where she will no doubt put on the crystal slipper and become someone's queen. All sounds so romantic, doesn't it not? January!
There are two things basically wrong with the original cover artwork for Footprints In The Snow by Johnny Duncan And The Blue Grass Boys. Firstly there is no sign of the Blue Grass Boys, only Mr Duncan is visible. Secondly, and most importantly, there is no snow and related to that, there are no footprints either. The remix rectifies this second point as we find that there are many footprints in the snow and we can also see the babe who has made them. Chilling!
For Christmas Day, what better than to remix an old seasonal classic as our gift to you. Here is Greg Lake with I Believe In Father Christmas. The original cover is festive in its own way, but leaves many questions unanswered, the main one being who is it that believes in old Santa Claus. The remix provides us with one answer, that being a cute young babe, sat by her Christmas tree, waiting for presents to be delivered. It may not be who Mr Lake was singing about, but it really doesn't matter. Happy Holiday!
Christmas is almost upon us, and so we send you a Christmas Card. That being said, the card has been prepared by The Temptations and their version of the card had a drawing of them singing. Our card to you has remixed this and has a group of babes bursting out of your and their Christmas stockings. An apt card for you from us here at AllBum.Art. Merry!
Happy Holiday is just one of the many classic seasonal songs on the Christmas Collection by Andy Williams. On the original cover we find Mr Williams smiling at us amidst a wintery scene evidenced by a few fuzzy snowflakes. On the remix we find a collection that we think would make Mr Williams proud - a collection - that is - of beautiful babes dressed in very festive outfits. A collection that makes the Christmas spirit flow, deep and crisp and heaven. Divisive!
It is sometimes easy to forget that there are many places around the world where Christmas is not presented with scenes of snow and ice, but instead of hot weather, bikinis and beaches. We speak, of course, of the southern hemisphere, where Christmas falls at the start of summer instead of the beginning of winter. In countries south of the equator, it may therefore be perfectly normal to spend Christmas In The Sand and perhaps that is where Colbie Caillat got her idea from. We hope she won't mind too much if we remix her album cover and replace her on the sand, with an alternative babe in a festive bikini. Sunshine!
A minor holiday hit from British musical maestro Elton John, Cold As Christmas (In The Middle Of The Year) sees the aforementioned Mr Dwight playing his piano infront of a windy looking desert backdrop, the lid of his piano reflecting what looks like a swimming pool. Cold and christmassy it's not. The remix shows what a Christmas might look like if it was in the middle of the year - so cold that you could wear your bikini and paddle around in the sea. Happy!
