coldcut doctorin the house 2coldcut doctorin the house 1We are Doctorin' The House with Coldcut (Featuring Yazz & The Plastic Population). The original single front cover artwork is a handy blur of orange and aqua blobs that really does not in any way convey any kind of medical message that might be associated with the song. On the remix we find a doctor, in the house, so to speak. We know she is a doctor as she has a stethoscope around her neck. What more proof do you need, people? Certificate!

We wonder whether today's remix artist Gwen McCrae is in any way related to yesterday's remix artist George, but we are too lazy to put their names into a search engine to find out. Anyway, today's triple-play remix of Keep The Fire Burning shows that the original single front cover artwork presents us with a picture of Ms McCrae smiling - perhaps she is nice and toasty in front of a fire but this is not apparent. On the first remix we find a babe who is so toasty in front of a fire that she has stripped down to her pink negligee. On the second remix we find a babe that must be even warmer, and whose job, it seems, is to keep that fire burning. Sizzle!

Get Out Of Your Lazy Bed - Matt Bianco

matt bianco get out of your lazy bed 2matt bianco get out of your lazy bed 1When a band such as Matt Bianco sings a song entitled Get Out Of Your Lazy Bed, we expect a little more from the original single cover artwork than a moody picture of the band members. What we do expect is a bed, with someone in it, who is clearly lazy and doesn't want to get out (or is is the bed that is lazy?) So it is probably good news that all of these aspects appear to be present in the remixed artwork. Snooze!

What's Another Year - Johnny Logan

johnny logan whats another year 2johnny logan whats another year 1What's Another Year? That is what Johnny Logan asks us. How timely is his question as we enter a new year? How odd, then, that on the original single cover artwork we find Mr Logan looking less than happy. For the remix we've gone all HG Wells and we find a babe sitting on a time machine. To her another year is no big deal, just flip the switch and off you go. If only life was that simple. Then again, if you had a time machine, maybe it would be. Temporal!

Hazy Shade Of Winter - The Bangles

bangles hazy shade of winter 2bangles hazy shade of winter 1Today's question is what is a Hazy Shade Of Winter? According to The Bangles, it might be black, as that is the color that all of the band members are wearing on the original single cover artwork. On the remix we find a babe standing outside in the snow, so it's almost certainly winter. She is wearing a rather hazy white bodysuit and so we can but presume that white, being the color of snow and of the catsuit, is the hazy shade that the group were referring to. Blanco!

What I Got Is What You Need - Unique

unique what i got is what you need remixunique what i got is what you need 1What I Got Is What You Need is the bold statement made by Unique. And if what it is that you need happens to be a white triangle against a backdrop of a pink and yellow square, then the original single cover artwork does, indeed, have what you need. So in that sense, the addition of a babe who does seem to have pretty much everything you might need to the front cover is probably not for you. On the other hand, if white triangles aren't your thing... Necessity!

Who's That Girl - Eurythmics

eurythmics whos that girl 2eurythmics whos that girl 1The odd thing about the question Who's That Girl, when considering the original single artwork by Eurythmics, is that the only female on the cover is cross-dressing as a boy, beard and all. On the remix we find three babes who seem intent on flashing their asses at us. One of the girls is sticking her tongue out at us. You may ask who that girl is, or indeed one of her friends as they are all worthy of being identified and being given a damned good telling off for being so rude. Snook!

Highly Strung - Spandau Ballet

spandau ballet highly strung 2spandau ballet highly strung 1Another remix for those new romantics, Spandau Ballet. On the original single cover artwork for Highly Strung, we find a blonde haired woman who appears more to have been roped than strung, but we will let them off this. But there isn't a lot of string, or rope, involved. On the remix, we find an Asian babe who has also been roped up, but there is far more rope involved, so we could safely say she is highly roped, or highly strung as the saying goes. Knotty!

Too Shy - Kajagoogoo

kajagoogoo too shy 2kajagoogoo too shy 1It seems that Kajagoogoo are Too Shy not only to show themselves on the original front cover artwork of their single, but they are so shy, that there is nothing on the front cover other than the title of the song and the name of the artist. On the remix there is a babe who is quite shy, but perhaps not too shy. After all, though she is covering her decency with her hands, she is otherwise naked other than her high heels. Embarrassed!

Showroom Dummies - Kraftwerk

kraftwerk showroom dummies remixkraftwerk showroom dummies 1Not content with The Model, Kraftwerk also bring us some Showroom Dummies. To be fair to the band, on the original single cover artwork, they do look rather fake, but probably a little too realistic to be real mannequins. On the remix we find three showroom dummies who are all naked. One is a mannequin, the other two are dummies. Can you tell which is which? Bodypaint!
