Turn Around (or Hey What's Wrong With You as it is sometimes sub-titled) is by Phats & Small whose original single front cover artwork tells us that they are on Multiply Records, but nothing about who or what is turning around or, even, why. On the remix we find two babes out for a cycle on their tandem bike. Why do they need to turn around? Because, and as if you hadn't noticed this, they appear to have gone out for their ride without first putting any clothes on (other, oddly, than scarves, socks and gloves). Saddle!
We 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!
It may seem odd to be remixing a summer sizzler in January, but it's nice to be cheered by some warm sunshine in these dark, cold times of the year (and it is, of course, summer in the southern hemisphere). The original front cover single artwork for Free As The Morning Sun by Mr Hermano doesn't have much of a summery feel about it, though with all those stars on it, it is to be hoped there would be a planet with a sunny beach on it somewhere. On the remix we find a babe enjoying the morning sun freely. Now that's more like it. Dawn!
Yes, it's still cold outside and so the perfect time for another wintery remix, this time for The Florin Street Band and their single (well E.P. actually) The Winter Wonder. On the original single front cover artwork we find a suitably wintery scene with holly berries and that. On the remix we find an even more wintery scene as we discover a babe laying down in the snow. It's a wonder she hasn't caught a cold. Flushed!
On the original single front cover artwork for Rock Your Baby, we find George McCrae lounging around against a wooden fence. It seems he is not rocking, though it is a still photo, but there is definitely no baby, babe or other diminutive person around. On the remix we find a babe, or baby, who is lounging around against a rock in her bikini. The only missing part is whether she is your baby or someone else's baby who is rocking. Pebble!
When 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!
On the original single cover artwork for Starry Eyed Surprise by Oakenfold we find a female mannequin wearing a black and white face mask and whose body has been covered in silver paint. How do we know it is a mannequin - check out the arms where you can see the join to the hand! On the remix we find two females who have been covered in silver body paint and this time they appear to be real and not dolls. Either that or the joins are very well done. Argent!
