"Why all the remixes of obscure tracks?" is a question we get asked a lot here at AllBum.Art. The answer is too complicated to give in full but in the case of this particular cover, it was purely the fact that one of the team found a photo of a sexy milf whose skirt and t-shirt were too short and said that these were a really bad fit. And so we found a song with a suitable title: Misfit by Curiosity Killed The Cat, and remixed the cover. Does that answer your questions?
A 1960s soul classic remix from Wilson Pickett. The original cover of In The Midnight Hour shows Mr Pickett singing into his microphone but no indication of where he is or how late in the day it it. The remix resolves this anomaly by using a wider view to show that Mr Pickett is standing in a street with a girl standing in front of him (to who is is singing). How do we know it is midnight? Because the girl is wearing nothing more than a see-through t-shirt and you don't wear those in broad daylight (not even broads do that!)
A Roller Skating Jam Named 'Saturdays' is a rather odd title for a song but then De La Soul were never shy of oddness (or so it says here). The original cover shows artwork of the time (early 199s) with two people (one boy, one girl) holding hands with roller skates on. The remix shows three people (all girls) with roller skates on. For some reason they are also largely topless. Cute!
Not strictly a remix of the cover of a song, but there is an album of the movie soundtrack for which this cover fits perfectly! We just couldn't bare to see Mr Travolta jiving away on the dance-floor with a woman who seems unable to fulfill even the basic feverish requirements. So we have given him a most suitable dance partner, a bare lady who seems more than able to strut her stuff just as well as Mr Travolta does, just without the unnecessary accompanying clothing.
Following on the theme of songs with moon in the title, and thus an excuse to show 'buttocks exposed for fun', we bring you the classic Moon River as sung in 1961 by Andy Williams, oh yes. The original cover shows, well, shows Mr Williams much as you would expect. The remix is the ultimate in mooning buttocks in a river, and makes it completely clear why this particular river deserves it's lunar moniker.
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1970s, Special Remixes, Summer Sizzlers, High Heels, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkAmazing! It seems that even in the 1970s, people were using picture editors to rework photos. The cover of Summer (The First Time) by Bobby Goldsboro shows Mr Goldsboro standing alone on an empty beach. But the truth is shown in the second picture. Standing behind him is a sexy babe flashing her naked body from underneath a blue towel. The question is why Mr Goldsboro is looking so melancholy. If only he had turned around to face the opposite direction he might have had a smile on his face!
Telephone by Lady Gaga Featuring Beyoncé is one of those annoying songs that's about being annoyed by a noisy telephone when you are trying to enjoy yourself. Odd that Ms Germanotta should be so perturbed by her phone when she lost it in her hit Just Dance. The remix does away with Ms Germanotta and Ms Knowles-Carter and shows a babe who is clearly in need of a mobile as she finds her self standing at a phone booth trying to make a call with little other than her coat to keep her warm. Perhaps she has lost her phone, and her clothes too?
Album Covers, Albums Of The 1970s, Single Covers, Singles Of The 1970s, Special Remixes, Summer Sizzlers, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkIt's always great to receive remixes of album artwork submitted to us by our visitors. It seems we were not the only ones who were inspired by the definition of 'moon' relating to revealing buttocks - an activity we greatly support here at AllBum.Art. This one is provided by Dirk Fansome of Santa Rosa, CA. Dirk says:
I know there's no picture of the moon in my re-imagining of the cover, but I figured that a hot babe dancing at sunset and mooning at us would fit better with the original color scheme of the cover.
We think Dirk has a point and that his remix has more aplomb than most of ours... what do you think?
Following the theme of songs with 'moon' in their title is the 1956 classic Blue Moon by none other than Elvis Presley. The original cover shows a handsome Mr Presley but no indication of what the song has got to do with the moon, though the style of the record could be said to be based on the blues. The remix shows a sexy woman mooning at us and why, if it ain't a pair of blue bloomers she's a-wearin'!
The Whole Of The Moon was a hit in 1985 (and again when re-released in 1991) for The Waterboys. The original single cover actually consisted of a record cover with the title on it, with the central picture of the moon being printed on the enclosed single. Nice idea! The cover lacked one important factor though, only half the moon was visible (the dark side being hidden). This has been rectified in the remix as we see a sexy chick providing us with a full moon!
