According to Wet Wet Wet, when they were Wishing I Was Lucky, the first thing that sprung to their mind when putting together the original single front cover artwork was a dark city street, with pictures of the band members strewn on a dirty wall in a haphazard fashion. On the remixed artwork, we find that wishing you are lucky brings you a naked babe showering in a waterfall. Presumably she is wet, though whether she is triply wet is difficult to determine from a distance. Soaking!
If the original single front cover artwork is to be believed, My Perfect Cousin, according to The Undertones reaches perfection through playing Subbuteo soccer. Maybe that is what counts for perfection where they are from, but at AllBum.Art we seek a little more from our perfection. On the remix we find a babe of near perfection. Of course perfection is an individual decision, but if she was our cousin, we would be happy. Sublime!
Bring on the Dancing Girls, sings Nik Kershaw. He may sing that, but on the original single front cover artwork we find nothing but Mr Kershaw. Maybe he is waiting for the dancing girls to arrive? On the remix we find that the girls have arrived and appear to have begun dancing around a gold colored pole that they have brought with them. But where are they? It looks from the nature of the iron gates behind them that this may be the doorway to some dreary dungeon. No wonder they took so long to get here. Arrival!
You may have noticed that the guys here at AllBum.Art have a number of favorite topics when it comes to remixing single and album artwork, in particular angels, and people caught in the rain. So they jumped at the chance to remix Walking In The Rain by Modern Romance (and not because it had an angel in it!) On the original cover, there is no evidence of any walking, but they have tipped their hat at the rain with an umbrella in the background. On the remix we find a babe walking in the rain. Could it be any more straightforward than that? Splash!
A Flock Of Seagulls bring us a song called Wishing (If I Had A Photograph Of You), but they also bring us an original single front cover whose artwork shoes an empty photo frame and a vase of roses. What they obviously needed was someone to take a photograph for them, so that they could put it in the frame. On the remix is a babe who could have done that for them. In fact, the photograph of the babe herself would be more than good enough for their empty photo frame. Snap!
The Psychadelic Furs lead us to believe that someone, or something, is Pretty In Pink. But the only thing that is pink on the original single cover artwork is the title of the song. And there isn't anything that would be classed as particularly pretty. On the remix we find a babe who is pretty, and who is in pink, though the pink she is wearing doesn't properly cover up the pinkness of her skin underneath. Magenta!
We all know what Hooters refers to these days, but in 1987 they were a rock band, go figure! The original single cover artwork for Satellite has neither any modern day hooters, nor any kind of space hardware. On the remix we find a babe standing amidst a range of satellite dishes and there is evidence of some hooters too. Good job it was a sunny day, otherwise she might have been a bit cold. Beam!
Lillo Thomas seems to think that standing in his long overcoat, scarf and hat will somehow lead us to think of a Sexy Girl, as the original single front cover artwork shows. This doesn't work for us, so we remixed it and on the remix we find a sexy girl. No scarf, no hat, just a t-shirt and a pair of jeans. Simple, really, so why Mr Thomas couldn't work this out is a mystery. Perspexy!
John Parr is apparently not just naughty, but Naughty Naughty (is that double naughty?) Peering at us from over the collar of his leather jacket as he appears on the original single front cover artwork, he looks more cheeky than naughty. On the remix we find one babe who appears to be chastising another for being naughty, naughty, whipping her with her school tie in the classroom. Naughty!
Ultravox inform us that We Came To Dance, but is that something you would have understood had you looked at the original single front cover artwork? Or would you think that the song is about mountains? On the remix we find two babes who have got their ballet gear on and are limbering up and as far as we can tell, they have come to dance. Somewhat oddly, their ballet gear does not seem to include a skirt, or any panties, but perhaps that is the norm when rehearsing. Bottom!
