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!
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!
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!
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!
What'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!
Today'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 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!
The 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!
