Another song asking us to Check It Out (Everybody), this time from B.M.R. Featuring Felicia. But who is Felicia and what is is that she wants us to check out? The original cover tells us nothing. The remixed single cover artwork, on the other hand, does. It seems Felicia may have had herself a boob job, and so proud is she of the results that she want's anyone and everybody to check it out. Seems to check out from what we can see. Examination!
Hey, dude, what ya gawkin' at? It seems Lil' Chris is Checkin' It Out for ya, so you don't have to. But what is it that Chris is checkin, other than his own ego by making the two fingered devil salute. On the remix we find a guy who may or may not be lil, and who may also be or not be called Chris, but what he is doing is checking out some mature babe who seems happy to offer herself up for his inspection. So what's his verdict? We may never know, or even want to. Ancient!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1960s, Special Remixes, Halloween Hits, Angels & Devils, Not Safe For WorkAnother remix for Elvis Presley and this time for his single (You're The) Devil In Disguise. On the original single cover artwork we find Mr Presley looking rather upbeat in his grey jacket and strumming his guitar. No sign of that disguised devil though. On the remix we find a babe who is clearly a devil and has cleverly disguised herself by flashing her boobs and thus distracting us from the horns on her head. Horny!
Take Me Away (Into The Night) are the instructions we are given by 4 Strings. For the babe on the original single cover artwork, this appears to be achieved through her standing around in sunglasses when it is dark, and wearing a bikini and a knitted top. On the remix, a similar looking babe, but one who has ditched the sunglasses as it is dark, and with it, it would seem, she has ditched the rest of her outfit too. Shady!
According to Elvis Costello, (The Angels Wanna Wear) Red Shoes. What is therefore highly disappointing is that the cover of his single doesn't give any indication of why, who, where or any solve any other inquisitive statements. Indeed even Mr Costello is not wearing red shoes. On the remix we find an angel who is wearing red shoes. Why she would wanna do this is not clear though, as white ones would have gone far better with her outfit. Matching!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 2000s, Special Remixes, Halloween Hits, High Heels, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkIt all happens At Night. That is what we are generally led to believe, which is that daytime is when not much happens, but at night it all kicks off. On the original cover of this single by Shakedown, we find someone wearing a space suit. Maybe it's night, maybe it isn't - because space is dark all of the time. On the remix we find a babe who is unquestionably happening, and it is definitely night. It look as if she has lost her shirt at the casino. Good job she kept her jacket to cover her up as she walks home, eh? Small!
I wanna be your freak, all through the day, all through the night. That is what Adina Howard tells us in her song Freak Like Me. On the original single cover artwork we find Ms Howard wearing leather and fishnet hose. On the remix we find a babe who, arguably, is significantly more freaky, wearing, as she is, stupidly high platform heel shoes and a latex outfit with a hole where her ass is. Freakly!
Another remix for Inxs (which is pronounced 'in excess' rather than 'inks' in case you were wondering). The original artwork for their album Kick is a kind of random jumble of images of the band members - none of them in a kicking posture. On the remix we find a babe who is doing a high kick, in her heels, or maybe she is trying to kick off her heels, we may never know. High!
We give full marks to Emmylou Harris for the cover of her album White Shoes. Why full marks? Because it shows both the artist (Ms Harris) and a pair of white shoes (in this case ones that she is wearing herself). So really our remix is a little pointless, however we had this great picture of some white shoes and though these would make a great replacement for the original artwork. Do you like the picture of the white shoes? Oops, look what's in the mirror. Reflection!
The Fratellis seem to use pinup artwork on the covers of many of their singles. On the cover of Whistle For The Choir, they show a pinup babe with long legs, and wearing stockings, holding up her panties in the air over her handbag. On the remix we have just replaced the drawing with a real babe doing much the same thing, though she seems a little more embarrassed about her situation than the babe on the original drawing. Drop!
