As you know, we here at AllBum.Art particularly like single artwork where the artists have made an effort to portray the name of the song on the cover. Hawkwind have singularly failed this task on the cover of their single Silver Machine. Not only is there no machine visible, but neither is there any sign of a machine. On the remix, we have rectified this situation and we find a shiny silver motorbike engine. Oh, and a cute babe sitting in front of it. Vroom!
Another remix for 10cc, this time for the artwork of their album How Dare You. On the original cover we find a businessman on the telephone to a female, possibly his wife, or mistress, or even his secretary[url]. On the remix we find only the female who is fiercely proclaiming her dare, which appears to have been to stand in the street and flash her naked body. Dare!
Lorraine (Lorraine, Lorraine) Lorraine, Lorraine... Is how the lyrics go in this 80s song from Bad Manners. On the original cover we find that Lorraine is somewhat less than real, and is sitting on a chair. On the remixed single artwork, we find that Lorraine has become much more realistic but sadly, has fallen off the chair. That said, she doesn't seem all that unhappy about her predicament. Topple!
We kind of half like the original single artwork for Good Girls Go Bad by Cobra Starship. The idea that some babe in green stiletto pumps would draw on the face of a snoozing guy who could, if he woke up, presumably look right up her skirt, is a nice one. Our remix just has a group of girls who appear to have decided to streak along a corridor. Naughty girls, bad girls, good girls - it's all the same to them. Knock-out!
The Final Exit is where Fear Factory are taking us. Their vision of this seems to be some symmetrical metal scorpion. Our vision of a final exit is rather different. Our exit is one which, after you go through it, there is no return. That must be why the babe who is about to go through it has decided not to take anything too valuable with her. She doesn't have her phone or computer, or, for that matter any of her clothes. Obviously the shoes she is wearing are of little monetary value. Let's wish her farewell. Bye!
Another remix for R.E.M.. According to the band, It's The End Of The World As We Know It, however the original single cover artwork does not help us depict the scene, unless the world ends with a lightning storm. On the remix we find a babe who is defending herself as the end of the world as we know it encroaches on her. She has a large gun and must have been shooting a lot of zombies or something as she is covered in blood. Also some chemical agent must have been in use as all her clothes have fallen off. Apocalyptic!
Another remix for Kenickie and this time for their single Nightlife. On the original single cover artwork we find that the band's idea of nightlife is a bed with silk sheets and a playboy pillow with a lava lamp sitting on an untidy bed-side set of drawers. This maybe the aftermath of some nightlife, but we think that the remix offers a view of what might have gone on before, as two babes are out at night living it up on the streets wearing nothing but their high heels. Living!
It would appear, if the cover artwork for Biffy Clyro's single is to be believed, that the ship that The Captain is captaining, is some kind of airborne wooden affair. On the remix we instead find a picture of the captain herself, as yes, the captain is a babe not a dude, and one who seems to like wearing high heels and PVC underwear. Now that would certainly encourage a few wooden poles on the ship, and as for an affair, that would depend on her crew mates. Floating!
Gabrielle tells us that she has Dreams, or so she sings, but the original cover artwork for her single tells us only that she has a rhinestone encrusted eye patch. Perhaps this is her dream. On the remix we find a guy alone in a hotel room with a half naked blonde babe with significant assets who seems intent on making his dreams come true. Those kind of dreams we can visualize, even without the eye patch. Blind!
Imagination is what you have to use to interpret the single cover artwork by Belouis Some. The original cover shows Mr Some with a pensive look on his face. Does this suggest he is lost in his imagination? Perhaps that depends on what he is imagining. On the remix we find a mature babe who has her hands in her panties, and has a definite look of imagination on her face. What she is imagining we can only guess, but unlike Mr Some, her thoughts seem much more uplifting. Smile!
