Another remix for Richard Marx, this time for his song Angelia. On the original single cover artwork we see that Mr Marx is standing holding his guitar. This begs the obvious question of who Angelia is, unless, of course, it is in fact the name of his guitar. On the remix we find an angel of a babe, who could well be called Angelia as she stands looking over her shoulder at us over her feathery wings. Ascend!
There seems to be a never ending supply of Depeche Mode songs to remix. Today it is the turn of Cover Me. On the original single front cover artwork we find what seems to be a spaceship made of an old plastic bottle. Far more appropriately on the remix we find a babe who seems to need to be covered because she is embarrassed that her bikini has gotten lost somehow. Anyone offering to do the covering for her? Form a line. Sandy!
Whilst we are on the subject of Depeche Mode, here's yet another remix, this time for the front cover of their single Just Can't Get Enough. On the original artwork we find some kind of mummy, or failing that, a man badly wrapped in bandages at what must have been some kind of highly rudimentary medical facility as they tied him up with rope too. On the remix we find literally lots of babes. Now it could be argued that even this many is not enough, but who's to say that there aren't literally lots more just off the edge of the page. Hidden!
Back in March 2016, we had a whole week of Depeche Mode remixes, but that doesn't stop us dropping a few new ones in the mix from time to time. Today it is the original single front cover artwork for Dreaming Of Me that hits the news-stands. On the original cover we find a babe with a long pony-tail in some kind of house of mirrors. Maybe it is a dream. On the remix we find a babe who we are certain, if she asked the question 'are you dreaming of me?', there would be many folk who would wish to immediately fall into a sleepy state and allow their thoughts to be taken into her realm. Slumber!
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!
