Ridin' Thumb - Seals And Crofts

seals croft ridin thumb remixseals croft ridin thumb 1Seals And Crofts sang about Ridin' Thumb, also known, to you and me, as hitch-hiking. Sadly on the cover of their single, there is no evidence of any thumb-related activity, nor, it has to be said, is there any evidence of Mr Seals or Mr Crofts - so a total fail as cover artwork goes. This has been rectified on the remixed cover as we see a babe standing by the side of a road with her thumb held out ready to attract any passing vehicles. Wearing that outfit, she will have no problems with that. Up!

Down In The Tube Station At Midnight - The Jam

the jam down in the tube station at midnight remixthe jam down in the tube station at midnight 1Naked babes in public places seems to be the order of the day and though we're done with streets, there are other places of a public nature where nude babes hang out. Today it's Down In The Tube Station At Midnight, according to The Jam. Apparently 'the tube' is the name for the London metro and on the original cover we see the band standing exactly where it says in the title. The remix shows the same time and a nearby venue but with added benefits. Tunnel!

Tie A Yellow Ribbon (Round The Ole Oak Tree) - Dawn Featuring Tony Orlando

Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Ole Oak Tree.
It's been 3 long years,
Do you still want me?

Is what the words of this famous song by Dawn Featuring Tony Orlando state. If no yellow ribbons are tied around the tree, the guy will stay on the bus and forget about us. So here we find that not only has the girl tied a yellow ribbon around the tree, but has shackled herself to it as well. Extra!

When You're In Love With A Beautiful Woman - Dr Hook

dr hook beautiful woman 2dr hook beautiful woman 1When You're In Love With A Beautiful Woman, it gets hard. That's what Dr Hook told us back in 1979. They do not indicate what gets hard, though it does not take much imagination to work out what they might have meant. The original cover sees the band standing around looking at something, but whatever it is they are looking at is as elusive as the question of what gets hard. In the remix, it seems that both these problems are resolved satisfactorily as it seems they are looking at a beautiful woman. The hard bit... you work it out. Heartfelt!

I Made It Through The Rain - Barry Manilow

barry manilow i made it through the rain 2barry manilow i made it through the rain 1There was a time when it was totally unfashionable to listen to Barry Manilow. That time is still with us, but things can be improved with a decent remix. Or an indecent remix. Either way, this remix of I Made It Through The Rain replaces a rather grey and grainy picture of Mr Manilow with a babe who may have made it through the rain, but has accidentally sat under a bucket of water with holes in it. Splosh!

Grease - Frankie Valli

frankie valli grease remixfrankie valli grease 1Grease, apparently, is the word. Or so says Frankie Valli. His smiling, fuzzy-haired face grinning out at us from the original cover of the single makes you wonder why grease is a special word at all, not just 'a' word, but 'the' word. The remix helps a little as we see that he is referring to the grease that seems to have come off the hand of someone helping a lost maiden to repair her car. Perhaps next time some overalls would come in handy. Plap!

Khe Sanh - Cold Chisel

cold chisel khe sanh remixcold chisel khe sanh 1Mike Toohey wrote to us from Sydney, Australia with a suggestion for a remix. Mike tells us that Khe Sanh by Cold Chisel is about, 'rooting asian babes' and contains the line 'their legs were often open but their minds were always closed'. Mike challenged us to find a way to remix the original cover of the single which already alludes to the somewhat prostitutional nature of the situation in Vietnam in those days. In the remix we see an asian babe in an army uniform. Whether her mind is closed is not know but the other part of the lyric is true. That OK for you Mike? Undergrowth!

Sharing The Night Together - Dr Hook

dr hook sharing the night together remixdr hook sharing the night together 1A week's worth of icy songs is quite enough, so let's get back to the more regular remixes. It's always nice to receive email and better still with suggestions for remixes. We received a suggestion from Scott of Orlando, FL to remix Spending The Night Together by Dr Hook. The original cover shows the band smiling. It might be night as it is dark, but it might not be. In the remix it is definitely night time and there are two girls. One is leading the other by the hand no doubt taking her somewhere they can spend the cold, dark night together. More suggestions are always welcome, as they (apparently) say in Germany, 'if you don't ask, the beer won't cook'!

Disco Santa - Village People

village people disco santa 2village people disco santa 1Disco Santa (Claus) was a terrible attempt by the Village People to score a holiday hit. The idea of Santa partying away at Studio 54 is not a bad one, but the cover is very badly executed. In the remix we see a group of holiday hits in their own right. Though they may have been dancing along with Santa it seems they are all now having a bit of a break. Probably just as well as dancing with no clothes on must be especially tiring. Bounce!

Christmas Present Blues - Jimmy Reed

jimmy reed christmas present blues 2jimmy reed christmas present blues 1Melancholy Jimmy Reed has got the Christmas Present Blues. Not much that can be done about that. But we can cheer up the cover of his single. Now let's think, what might cheer up Mr Reed? Perhaps a picture with some Christmas presents in it? Yes, that would be a good start. And what if they're wrapped in blue ribbon. Great, now we're getting somewhere. And to top it off, a busty blonde babe in blue lingerie too. Perfect!
