As we often say at AllBum.Art, sometimes it is the title of a song that inspires a remix, and sometimes it is a piece of artwork. This remix of Hammer To Fall by Queen falls into the latter category. It is not helped by the fact that the original single cover artwork, although showing the band's impressive lighting rig, does not have a hammer anywhere to be seen. On the remix, though, we find two babes who, if their hammers were to fall, would cause untold injuries to a third. It is to be hoped that their hammers did not in fact fall, but they themselves fell over due to having to hold up such a heavy weight wearing naught but high heeled boots. Topple!
Another triple-play remix from us good folk at AllBum.Art and as it's St. Patrick's Day we thought we would celebrate by bringing you that famous Irish song Molly Malone as performed by the Dubliners. On the original cover artwork we find the band in a shade of green. Now that's OK, but it's not really hitting the St. Patrick's Day vibe. On the first remix we find a babe wearing an Irish hat. That's nearer the mark. On the second remix we find a babe wearing an Irish hat and carrying beer, standing next to an Irish man also wearing a hat. Now dat's more loik it, to be sure!
It seems that Jennifer Lopez has a thing about shoes, given the title of this single Mile In These Shoes, not to mention her single Louboutins. We are not quite sure what the original cover artwork is trying to portray. Is it that walking a mile in silver high heels leaves you very sweaty, or is it that the real problem is walking a mile through water. On the remix we find a babe who does not look happy about walking a mile in her shoes, but that might be because other than her shoes, she only has her coat to keep her warm. Kilometer!
When Bat For Lashes put together the original cover artwork for their album The Bride, they made a valiant attempt to score high points (on the AllBum.Art scale) in that they have a picture of a band member who is wearing vaguely bridal attire. On the remix, the band member has been lost, but in her stead we have an alternative bride, whose attire is both more bridal, yet more minimal. At the same time the words fake, reflection and mirror come to mind, amongst other things. Wed!
So it seems from the original cover artwork of In These Shoes by Kirsty MacColl, that we can see the shoes she is talking about, being, as they are, sparkly and pink. But what is it that she was trying to achieve in those shoes? On the remix we find a babe with similar but gold shoes and as far as we can tell, what she doesn't want to do in those shoes is sit down on the road and put her stockings on. Odd really, as the road must surely be colder without her shoes on. Unfathomable!
To give credit where it is due, Basshunter have done quite well with the original cover artwork of their single Angel In The Night, as what it shows is a babe (who we could go so far as to admit might be quite an angel) who is sprawled over a car which might be at night, though the lighting doesn't confirm this 100%. The remix is far more explicit with the song title though as we find an angel who is hanging around the streets of a city at night. Nice wings!
It seems very odd to us that on the original cover artwork of their single Bubbles, Biffy Clyro choose to illustrate the song with the footsteps of a girl who is walking along a beach into the see having been replaced by red fish. Then again, we couldn't be bothered to listen to the song to see whether this fishy tale is actually in the lyrics. Either way, we think our remix which shows a group of babes playing with bubbles is far more representative of the song's title. Globules!
It seems that all that Rattles believe is necessary on the original single cover artwork for their single The Witch, to make us believe that there is a witch is for one of the band members to hide in a shed and beckon the other band members to join her through the use of a crooked finger and a wooden stick. We don't think so. So on the first remix we find a babe who is also using a wooden stick but is much more enticing. On the final remix we find a babe who has done without the wooden stick altogether, but seems to be in the altogether. How do we know she is a witch? Easy, she is wearing a hat. Spellbinding!
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!
