What would you expect to see on the front artwork of a single called Sealegs? Perhaps you might expect to see the sea, and possibly a some legs? No, not according to The Shins. What you find on the original cover is some kind of sea-urchin related drawing. On the remix everything returns to normal as you can see the sea, and a pair of legs. Why the legs concerned are lying down with nothing but a pair of stockings to cover them remains a mystery. Shingle!
A refreshing glass of Lemonade, what could be nicer? So it may come as some surprise that on the original album artwork by Beyoncé no such refreshment is visible. Overall, the original feel of the album is anything but refreshing. On the remixed artwork all of this has been resolved, and we find a babe slurping healthily on a glass of pink lemonade which does look like it would refresh even the weariest soul. Suck!
Whilst we're on the subject, here are another two stars who have failed to understand the meaning of the word Naked. Dev (whose song Dancing Shoes is one of the highest ranked remixes according to the AllBum.Art statistics) and Enrique Iglesias also appear fully clothed on the original single front cover artwork. The remix resolves this problem as a mature babe is undressing whilst a guy sits next to her and watches. How she expects to get her pantyhose off without taking her red high heels off is a puzzle we don't get to solve. Sofa!
What would you expect from a single whose name is Naked when it came to designing the cover artwork? Well it seems that Louise didn't think that wearing clothes was in any way contradictory. Seriously? Don't all pop stars want to pose naked on the front cover of their singles? On the remix we find a different babe, in a similar pose, who has also failed to grasp the concept of being naked, as she is still wearing a pair of high heel shoes. Fail!
The White Shoes, that is what Wale are purportedly singing about. We only know this as that is the title of the song, as the original cover artwork shows only a box, though this could be the box the white shoes came in. On the remix a babe has tried on the white shoes but in an unfortunate turn of events, this caused her to fall over and her panties end up around her knees. She is trying to pull them back up again before standing back up. Tipple!
We have a grudging respect for Magic as all they have illustrated on the original front cover artwork for their single Red Dress, is a red dress. Keep it simple, that's the rule. The remix does not try and break with the keeping it simple ethos as the only difference is that the red dress now is now filled by a babe who has paired it with some red high heels. Can someone help her with her zip? Chandelier!
Another remix for pop weirdness Cyndi Lauper, in the form of Grab A Hold. On the original single front cover artwork we find Ms Lauper in one of her landmark costumes, resembling an iced donut with legs. On the remix we find a red-haired babe whose stance seems to suggest that she is offering us to grab a hold. Of her necklace of course. What were you thinking? Sparkle!
What is it that Ric Ocasek thinks is Something To Grab For? If the original single cover artwork is used to guide us to the answer, it can be nothing other than Mr Ocasek himself. On the remix, we find a babe who, it is reasonable to state, is more than adequately gifted with something to grab for. More than this, her assets are so large, we wonder whether you could grab them with your hands or would need some kind of mechanical support to assist. Harness!
What do you find if you're Walkin' After Midnight? According to the original single cover artwork by Patsy Cline, her smiling face is what you will find. The remix seems more up-to-date as now, as we wander around after the midnight hour, we find a babe with very long stocking-clad legs, very high heels with red soles, a very short skirt which doesn't quite meet her stockings, and drag-queen make up. Bewitching!
Holy Cow, that is how Lee Dorsey discusses the girl who walked out on him. Holy smoke, it ain't no joke. Neither is the original single front cover artwork which shows Mr Dorsey with a less than unhappy smile on his face. On the remix we find a babe who looks like the type who might just walk out, being the cow that she may be. She is also, unquestionably, holy, what with her habit on show. Moo!
