Original Cover Artwork of Nancy Sinatra These Boots ROriginal Cover Artwork of Nancy Sinatra These Boots AName someone who doesn't know that These Boots Are Made For Walkin'. Because that's just what they'll do. One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you. Nancy Sinatra's 1966 classic has a cover which ain't too shabby. But with the addition of a little modern twist, the boots become much more the kind of thing that is suited to walkin' all over you. Spikey, to boot!

Original Cover Artwork of Awb Lets Go Round ROriginal Cover Artwork of Awb Lets Go Round The rather obscure Average White Band now appear more than once on the AllBum.Art alternative artwork catalogue. This time the picture of the band from their single Let's Go Round Again has been remixed to have a group of topless girls doing the rounds Just why the band thought that anyone would want to look at their hairy faces is anyone's guess. As for the girls, they can come round again any time they like. Let's go...

Get Through - Mark Joseph

Cover Artwork Remix of Mark Joseph Get Through Original Cover Artwork of Mark Joseph Get Through 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 - Tilt

Cover Artwork Remix of Tilt Invisible Original Cover Artwork of Tilt Invisible 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!

Red Dress - Sugababes

Original Cover Artwork of Sugababes Red Dress Remix Original Cover Artwork of Sugababes Red Dress Another cover from those British 'birds' the Sugababes with their 2005 single Red Dress. In the remixed version we see the Sugababes replaced by a girl in a red dress. Now isn't that a surprise? The fact that the dress is very skimpy and she also has stripper heels (also in red) just adds to the whole red thing, which is emphasized by the monochromanicity of the rest of the cover ('black and white' ness in other words).

Original Cover Artwork of Wheatus Teenage Dirtbag Remix Original Cover Artwork of Wheatus Teenage Dirtbag Does anyone ever read any of the trash that is written to go alongside these pieces of cover art? No? Thought so! The format is therefore gonna change to just show the original artwork alongside the remix with a few (a very few) words. Here's Wheatus 2000 single Teenage Dirtbag remixed so that there's a chick leaning against the motor. That alright for you?

Kinky Boots - Patrick MacNee And Honor Blackman

Cover Artwork Remix of Kinky Boots Original Cover Artwork of Kinky Boots This (and tomorrow's remixed album art) were submitted by Harold Binthwaite of England. Apparently, this was a 1960s song by two stars of the Avengers (the British version of Charlie's Angels), Patrick MacNee (Charlie) and Honor Blackman (insert random name of an angel here). Kinky Boots languished in the mists of time until it was made popular on a national radio station in the 1990s. Gosh, so thrilling, as they say in London.

Born In The USA - Bruce Springsteen

Original Cover Artwork of Bruce Springsteen Born In The Usa An all American classic like Apple Pie and July the 4th, Born In The USA is an 80's classic of its own by Bruce Springsteen. The cover for the single is relatively minimalist but almost has the essentials. Firstly, Mr Springsteen is pictured, in full rock-star electric guitar playing style. You can almost hear the chord that he is strumming. He is set against a red, white and blue backdrop that isn't totally dissimilar to the old star spangled banner itself. The main difference being the stars which have been replaced by the title of the song itself. 4 out of 5 perhaps? (Incidentally, you can rate any of the pictures by clicking the blobs at the bottom of each entry).

Original Cover Artwork of Bruce Springsteen Born In The Usa Remix Achieving a remix of this cover was never going to be easy. It's like remixing the white house. For starters you can't take away the red, white and blueness, that would just be plain wrong. But what can be done is to remix Mr Springsteen himself. So instead of his rock-star physique he has been replaced by a physique of a different type. Yes, Mr Springsteen has been replaced by a sexy all-American cheerleader type wearing a patriotic bikini. Though there is only one of her, she is clearly a shining star thereby putting the stars back into the spangled banner. She is an American model who is, it is true to say, is born in the USA. God bless America!

Superstition - Stevie Wonder

Original Cover Artwork of Stevie Wonder Superstition As the classic 1970s guitar kicks in you prepare yourself for some proper 70's funk. That marks the introduction to this classic from Stevie Wonder from 1972. Superstition is one of those songs that gets people a-twistin' and a-groovin' on dancefloors even today. The cover, on the other hand, is almost totally dismal in comparison. Just a silhouette of Mr Wonder, his name and the title of the song (which is in a font so large that it doesn't even fit across the cover). The use of an =equals= sign to hyphenate the word is odd. Nothing particularly superstitious about it though.

Original Cover Artwork of Stevie Wonder Superstition Remix A classic such as this doesn't need that much of a remix. But rather than leave Mr Wonder on his own, we've brought along a couple of sexy girls to dance behind him. They are silhouetted too, but seem to be wearing very little and may even be naked. Unfortunately asking Mr Wonder what they were wearing is a little pointless, and unless they happened to make a lot of noise whilst a-groovin' then Mr Wonder may not even have realized that they were present. Then again, maybe they came and sat on his lap (in the presence of such funk royalty it is only to be expected) in which case he will be able to tell us much more about them!

I Shot The Sheriff - Eric Clapton

Original Cover Artwork of Eric Clapton I Shot The Sheriff Sometimes the name of an album or single inspires a remixed cover. Sometimes it is the original cover itself which demands a revised version to be produced. Sometimes, as is the case here, it is a random picture found whilst innocently trawling the Internet which forms the inspiration itself. Let's first look at the original cover which shows Eric Clapton standing with a guitar, and a beard. In good 1970s cover fashion the name of the song, I Shot The Sheriff, and of course Mr Clapton's name appear on the cover too. That's pretty much all there is to it and in itself the cover, or title of the song or artists would be insufficient to inspire any kind of album art remake.

Original Cover Artwork of Eric Clapton I Shot The Sheriff Remix The inspiration in this case came from the picture that replaces that of Mr Clapton. In his place is a young lady, in a flimsy dress and high heels, carrying a whopping great gun. There are of course other songs which this picture could have been used to remix the cover of, but the question that shot immediately to mind was, 'who is it that she is looking to shoot?' The answer which immediately came to mind was, 'the sheriff, of course'. There are lots of other possibilities, and it is possible, of course, that she is just a model posing with the gun for publicity purposes (a bad move following recent events) and wasn't intending to shoot anyone. But artistic license permits all kinds of extrapolation and thus this particular remade cover was born. Following her shooting of the sheriff, she escaped by hiding the gun and her clothes (which had gunpowder residue on them) in a garbage can and running naked to her hideout several miles away. Sadly, no pictures of this part of her story are available.
