A song called Bubblin' (with the missing 'g' at the end to make it sound more sexy) can easily be spoiled by a poor single cover. And the original artwork shows nothing more than the band members for the artist Blue. They aren't bubblin' in any way - with or without the 'g'. On the remix is a mature babe who is sitting in a bubblin(g) bath of some kind, or maybe a hot-tub. It is to be hoped that the bubbles are artificial and not a product of something she has eaten. Donald!
Poor Fleetwood Mac. When having a bit of a brainstorm about what to put on the front cover artwork of their single Gpysy, they could arrive at nothing more exciting than two people dancing, and one looking on jealously. It's a good job that AllBum.Art is here to help. On the remixed cover is a gypsy. We know that she is a gypsy because of the bandana she is wearing and her oversized earrings. Everyone knows those are gypsy hallmarks, right? Hoopy!
Nothing beats a good angel-based remix and Angel Of The Morning by Juice Newton (real name Judy and not Juice, obviously) is just such a song. The original single front cover artwork shows Ms Newton looking anything but angelic. And whether it is the morning or not is debatable. On the remix an angel is sitting on a rock warming herself in the morning sun. She will need to, as other than her wings, she hasn't got much to keep her warm. Lizard!
In some ways it is difficult to improve upon the original album front cover artwork for Hooked by Great White, which shows what appears to be a naked babe, clasping onto a fishing hook of some girth. She has certainly been hooked. The remix changes very little. A babe is still hooked, but this time as she leans astride a pommelhorse rather than being out at sea. And the hook is not a fishing hook this time, nor is it Captain Hook, or Doctor Hook. It's a kind of a crook, that is to say by hook, or by crook. Look, we never said this web-site was intellectual. Book!
It looks as if Iyaz is pointing to something on the original single front cover artwork. Maybe the thing he is pointing to is So Big, but that is not visible to us. On the remix is a babe who is undoubtedly big, and maybe even so big. So big, in fact, that her bikini top is not holding her boobs in. It might be that someone needs to help her understand how bras are sized so that she can choose a better fit next time. Then again, maybe not. Peeking!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1990s, Special Remixes, Halloween Hits, High Heels, Outdoors, Safe For WorkGene are all For The Dead, which is good given it's All Hallow's Day (a.k.a. the day after Halloween). After all those ghouls and ghosts, the band chose to illustrate being for the dead on their original single front cover artwork by having a woman (or is it a doll) in a long dress. On the remix, is a babe who is definitely for the dead, which she illustrates by hanging around naked in a graveyard (other than her black high heels, in lieu of a black tie no doubt). Fallen!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1970s, Special Remixes, Halloween Hits, Angels & Devils, Safe For WorkDance With The Devil, is what Cozy Powell tells us that we should be doing. On the original single front cover artwork, Mr Powell helps us visualize this by smoking a cigarette in black and white. On the remix we find a devil who is dancing, tempting us to join in. Beware though, because it's know that dancing with the devil can lead to boogieing with Beelzebub and you wouldn't want that now would you? Lucifer!
What, you may be asking yourself, are Cemetery Shoes? Let us turn to the infinite wisdom of Johnny Dowd for an answer this question. If the original album front cover artwork is to be believed, it seems to be something to do with sweeping up leaves in a graveyard with an electric guitar. An alternative view is that of the remixed cover which shows a babe standing in a cemetery in a pair of high heeled shoes and her lingerie. Oh, and with an umbrella for good measure. Those kind of shoes, that is what. Misty!
Silly old Crowded House. They've only gone and gotten themselves Locked Out. This is immediately apparent from the original single front cover artwork in which the band members are standing around looking clueless. Perhaps if they were less clueless they might not be locked out. On the remix a babe is locked out of her car, but is at least making an effort to get back into it. We can't help but thinking that there might have been easier ways to unlock the car than the approach she is taking. Climb!
Album Covers, Albums Of The 1990s, Single Covers, Singles Of The 1990s, Outdoors, Wet & Windy, Safe For WorkWhen Vanessa Mae was thinking about what could go on the original cover artwork for both her single and album, both titled Storm, she obviously thought that a picture of her with some red lighting was somehow evocative of bad weather. On the remix is a babe who is actually enduring stormy weather out at sea. She had better be careful as she is naked (at least from the waist upwards) which is not the right clothing for when the weather is inclement. Umbrella!
