And I say, "Whaaay hey hey hey hey, whaay hey hey. I say whaaay, what's goin' on". Such deep and meaningful lyrics from this 1993 song by 4 Non Blondes. They pose the question "What's Up?" Isn't it clear what's up? The single cover is boring, that's what. It's been remixed to overcome the boredom of the original single cover and the song to show 4 different non-blondes whose presence on the cover also goes a long way to answering the question. What's up? Perkiness has risen by over 400%, that's what's up.
Hot Numbers Volume 2. What could better illustrate this than someone lying down on the grass, legs spread, wearing red boots, a dodgy snakeskin top, a hat, and a purple belt with a pink heart on it? Perhaps two hot babes, wearing nothing but their high heels, posing in a garden, on some stairs, next to a column. That, perhaps. That is why AllBum.Art exists, to correct bad album artwork with All Bum art work!

Where did Spinal Tap study? Why, Bitch School of course! Oh, hang on, the front cover artwork of their single suggests it is the bitch who is being schooled, not the band members. The remix does not clarify this much, but now there are three bitches at the school instead of just one. Then again, maybe that is why the band chose that particular educational establishment for their learnings. Blackboard!
Around The Fur, that is where the Deftones are meant to take us with their album cover. But the original artwork is nothing more than a top down view of a babe in a bikini. No fur anywhere to be seen. On the remix you will find a babe who is almost wearing a fur, or more precisely is laying on a fur. Other than her leopard skin print high-heels, the fur coat is all she has to keep warm. It is to be hoped that it's not a cold day as she will get pneumonia. Chills!
When Mark Joseph sings that we should Get Through, it is not at all clear what he means. On the original single cover artwork, there is no extra information to help, just a picture of Mr Joseph and his guitar (and a tree). On the remix is a babe whose skin appears to get through her clothing, which is decidedly see-through. Her clothes also seem to be three sizes too small. She really ought to buy some new ones, if she is going to head out in public like that. Fencing!
Invisible, that is what Tilt tell us that something is, but from the original cover for their single, the only thing that is clearly invisible is the skill of the person making the artwork. On the remix we find a babe who is wearing invisible clothes. Not only is her dress and underwear invisible, but her shoes are largely invisible too. It seems she may be aware of this as she attempts to cover up her modesty. Doesn't really work though does it. Gone!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1980s, Special Remixes, Halloween Hits, Angels & Devils, Busty, Not Safe For WorkThis submission from Troy Shakespeare of Australia shows just how far AllBum.Art has reached. The cover of Devil Inside by Aussie rockers INXS is meritorious in itself in that it reflects the name of the song in the picture. We like Troy's remixed cover better though, as it adds to the original cover art in so many ways. Is the chick Australian? That Troy doesn't tell us, but what we really want to know is whether there is a devil inside, or just a hot chick in a red jumpsuit.
What flashes through your mind when you hear the strains of this 1970 song from The Doobie Brothers? Is it a load of hairy rockers leaning around on some trees? If it is - you're in luck because that's what the original cover of Long Train Runnin' shows. If, on the other hand, you imagine a naked girl stood on some rail tracks, you're also in luck as that's what the remixed cover shows!
Every good mid-West girl sings along with Born To Run by Bruce Springsteen. Don't ask why, they just do. This is the remix of the album cover of the same name. Mr Springsteen's picture has been replaced by one of those very mid-West girls who sings along who is very clearly born to run herself. She has to run to stop mid-West boys catching her. The fact that she runs in nothing but her sneakers might have something to do with that.
Come Fly With Me by Frank Sinatra is one of those old-time classics that you don't mess with. Unless you're AllBum.Art that is! Mr Sinatra has been replaced by a girl posing as an aeroplane standing on what looks like a disused runway (you can tell because there are planes in the background - top left). You might also call this 'extreme down-blouse' because, well, look closely enough and you will see.
