Another remix on a futuristic, space age theme. This time it's Daryl Hall & John Oates who are describing the Method Of Modern Love. Apparently, if the original cover artwork is to be believed, this particular method involves permed hair, mustaches and sideburns. Oh, and leather jackets. On the remix we discover that the real method of modern love relies on weird, metal machines on a far-away planet. And, of course, a naked babe in a space helmet. Definitely!
Another futuristic remix for David Bowie, this time for his hit Space Oddity. The original cover shows Mr Bowie and although his hair style is a bit of an oddity, the rest of the picture shows nothing that might be from space. The remix shows three neon space creatures who apparently are from the planet Hornypants. At only 37 light years from Earth, it's the kind of place that NASA should be sending probes to. Human probes!
If you're sensing a theme this week at AllBum.Art then you wouldn't be far wrong. Our theme this week is space-age and futuristic remixes. And what better source of such material than David Bowie. Today's remix is for Modern Love and on the original cover we see the aforementioned Mr Bowie who may have looked modern in the 1980s but who looks positively old-fashioned now. Good job we remixed it and replaced Mr Bowie with a far more modern love. Purple?
Continuing the vaguely space-age theme, here is a remix for Future Love Paradise by Seal. The original cover shows Mr Samuel (see what he did there - Seal is an anagram of Samuel dropping the mu-sic!) being vaguely futuristic with his curly hair and muscular arm on show. Yeah, right! In the remix we see what appears to be a vaguely hybrid human-android love machine from some future paradise or other. Vague?
Infamous for not liking Mondays, the cover of The Boomtown Rats single She's So Modern indicates that the band also have odd ideas about what constitutes a modern woman. For them she's got the right clothes to wear, she knows the right things to say, and that is what makes her modern. For us, it's more to do with wearing a space-age outfit and, of course, the good thing about space-age outfits is just how skimpy they are. Boom!
Following yesterday's outer-space based remix, we thought another space-aged cover could do with the AllBum.Art treatment. This time it is Humanoid by Stakker that is under the telescope. The original cover has all of that late 1980s post-apocalyptic neo-transigent nonsense going on. The remix shows a humanoid, or at least what looks like a humanoid that is unless the blue patches on her skin are just decoration and not part of her actual physical being. Human being that is. Or not. Heck, you decide.
There is many a time, here at AllBum.Art that our cover artwork remixes select obscure or unheard of songs just because the title owes itself to such a remix. Viva Planet M by Montepulciano is one of those songs. We found the rather cute picture of the babe holding a ray-gun in the remix and needed a single to use it on. As the original cover just shows the ray-gun, the remix adds the much needed human touch, though whether humans live on Planet M is somewhat of an unknown. Zap!
Here's to you Mrs. Robinson! Originally a hit in 1968 for Simon And Garfunkel, here we deal with the cover of the cover version by Lemonheads. The original version of the cover could have been drawn by a 5 year old, dubious. The remix shows the version of Mrs Robinson that those familiar with The Graduate will far better recognize than some infant scrawl. In it we see - well, see for yourself - an older woman, a younger guy and lots of sexual tension. Seduction!
Occasionally, here at AllBum.Art, we find the cover of an album that remixes itself, simply through modernization. On the original cover of the Scorpions album, we see a sexy babe with an electric guitar. On the remix, the identical concept, just a more modern and less clothed version. Bizarrely, for an album called In Trance, it's a heavy metal album, not some plinkly plonky dance music. Simple!
