What would you expect to see on the original cover artwork of a single titled Raise Your Hands, by a band called Big Room Girl Featuring Darryl Pandy? That's a fair questions to ask. The answer is nothing, other than the title of the song, the name of the band, and the logo of the recording company. On the remix we find a big girl, in a room, raising her hands. Now how simple would it have been for them to have thought that through in the first place? Coathangers!
Today's instruction from Beverley Knight is to Come As You Are. This instruction is so important to her, that it is the title of both her album and single. On the original cover artwork we find Ms Knight dressed up ready to go and visit the President taking her own advice and not bothering to dress up, but to go as she is in her jeans and t-shirt. On the remix we find a babe who the President would no doubt wish would come as she was, in just her lingerie and heels. Scarlet!
Free Me, that is what Cast ask to be done. On the original single cover artwork, we find a butterfly in a cage, though if you look closely, it seems that the cage door is open, so there is no real need for the butterfly to be freed as it can just fly away. On the remix we find a babe who has been tied in a cage and unlike the butterfly, she can not just walk away as her feet are bound to the cage. She will need help. Any volunteers?
Nothing beats a good angel remix, and My Special Angel by Malcolm Vaughan is no exception. On the original single cover artwork we find Mr Vaughan looking casually over his shoulder at something but no sign of any angels. On the remix we find a special angel. We know she is special as her wings are black and as everyone knows, only fallen angels have black wings, the rest are white or thereabouts. Soar!
I Think Of You, at least that is what The Merseybeats sang. On the original front cover artwork of their single, we find the band members staring at something, but what can it be that they are thinking of? That much is not clear. On the remix we find a babe of their era who is on the telephone and also staring at something. Maybe they are staring at each other, and let's face it, that would explain why the one was thinking of the other. Dial!
Hello Jentina. And hello to your single Bad Ass Strippa. The thing is, and we don't want to sound ungrateful in anyway, but we kind of expected that on the original front cover artwork, given the name of your song, that we might expect to see an ass, but we give you seven out of ten for pretending to be a strippa yourself. On the remix we find a real bad ass strippa. Though, as far as we can see, her ass ain't that bad. Bend!
We expected a lot more from The Bump by Kenny when it comes to the original front cover artwork for the single. What we expected was at least some indication of what the bump is, instead of which we get an empty speech bubble and a hairy guy wearing a t-shirt with bump written on it. Maybe the remix is a bit obvious, but it's a nice bump that the babe is sporting. Several actually. Lumpy!
There aren't many songs about airports, but Luton Airport by Cats UK is one of them. The original single front cover artwork seems to show the band with their luggage, but are they at Luton Airport or some other airport? On the remix we find a babe who also has her luggage but is most certainly standing outside Luton Airport (who knew it was in London, we didn't?) She would appear to be a member of the cabin crew, either that or she enjoys dressing up as an air-hostess. Whoosh!
Aaah... One Kiss From Heaven. That is all you need in life. Though, if the original single front cover artwork by Louise is to be believed, the only thing that she is offering is a smouldering look. No kisses, and no heaven. How disappointing. On the remix we find an angel (a popular theme here at AllBum.Art) from whom one kiss would no doubt be satisfactory. Wings!
Apparently the residents of Hooverville promised us the world, or so The Christians would make us believe. Now we are not sure what you would expect a town with a name like Hoovervill to look like, but according the original single front cover, it is a fairly dreary place with derelict buildings and dusty roads. On the remix we find a different vision of Hooverville with, quite simply, a babe hoovering her home. Suck!
