Album Covers, Albums Of The 1990s, Single Covers, Singles Of The 1990s, High Heels, Outdoors, Public, Not Safe For WorkBack in November 2013 we had a whole week of remixes of covers of songs by Status Quo but as such prolific songwriters of twelve-bar blues based material, there's plenty more to have a go at. Don't Stop is both a single and an album by the band. On the remix we find out exactly why not stopping is recommended. Though it might be enticing to come to a halt to see a naked chick standing on a highway overpass, it is likely to lead to a severe traffic incident. Don't do it. Don't stop. Oh, and a message to the chick concerned, don't stop doing that either. Choice!
Stuck In The Middle With You... what images does this conjure up? Is it a bunch of 1970s band members such as those of the band Stealer's Wheel standing around looking, for the most part, bored (the guy on the right is even yawning). Or does it throw up images of a sexy cougar stuck between two younger guys. The latter you say? Well that's what the remix shows. Why is it all in orange? No idea, other than that is what the original single did. Mandarin!
It seems that in the height of the disco era in the 1970s, there were many sexy covers for singles produced. Dance (Disco Heat) by Sylvester does not capture the spirit of this era very well, which is why we, the good folk at AllBum.Art, are here to remix it for you. The remix shows a babe who is dancing and is hot, quite literally, as she is dancing by a fire. That's better. Sizzle!
The second in the two-day series of remixes of Morrissey single covers. Today's remix is for the song Pregnant For The Last Time. Let's skip the original cover and focus on the remix where we see a clearly pregnant babe who is, shall we say, not the best looking babe on the planet. Would she become pregnant again - only in a dark room using a blindfold - and therefore Mr Morrissey would be mostly correct in his assumption that this will not happen again. Resist!
A mini two-day series of remixes of the covers of singles by the former lead singer of the Smiths, Morrissey. The cover for his song entitled You're The One For Me Fatty shows Mr Morrissey himself but not why the particular fatty of whom he sings is the right one for him. On the remix we see a cute fatty who looks like a lot of fun. Though it's not certain that Mr Morrissey is someone who likes fun. We do though. Happy!
What on this planet (or any other) were Soft Cell thinking with the original cover of their 1984 song Down In The Subway? Down in the highly confused jumble of a two-year old's map of some kind of underground kingdom perhaps. But a subway looking like that is one that we, at AllBum.Art are not about to enter. On the remix we see a babe standing down in the subway. We would far prefer to enter her. Metro!
Continuing the theme of hitch-hiking we find songstress Sinitta (rumored to be a lover of X-Factor millionaire Simon Cowell) singing about Hitchin' A Ride. On the original cover we see Ms Malone looking none too happy about being so down and low that she needs to borrow a ride from someone else. A word of advice, Ms Malone, if you want to hitch a ride it helps to stick your thumb out like the babe in the remix. It may also help to wear what the babe in the remix isn't as well, or just a leaf or two. Foliage!
Now where were we before we were rudely interrupted by Valentine's Day? Ah, yes, just about to launch a short series of remixes of songs about hitch-hiking. Today it's turn of soul legend Marvin Gaye to sing about a Hitch Hike. On the original cover we see Mr Gaye looking ebullient (is that a word?) but no hitch hiking going on. On the remix we see a babe who is awaiting a hitch hike. She clearly needs a lift as it seems all her clothes, except her shoes, have been stolen. Help!
It's Valentine's Day so to put you in the mood, here is a romantic song about the kind of naughtiness that goes on at this time of year. Atlantic Starr sing about their Secret Lover, someone who they shouldn't be with. Maybe they sent them a Valentine's Card. Maybe they didn't. Either way, a remix is in order and on the remix we see a guy who is being adored by a sexy babe. It all looks very furtive and secret and there seems little doubt that they are lovers, though there may be little love lost there. Missing!
Seals 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!
