It comes to something when a band can only think of the name 2 for their second album, and sadly that fate has struck the All Girl Summer Fun Band. The original cover artwork shows nothing other than some effects pedals and two legs with shoes on the end of them all stylized in a fetching shade of shit brown. On the remix is a real life all girl summer fun band who seem to play their instruments in topless bikinis. Drum!
What would you expect to find on the front artwork for a single entitled My Pumps? Perhaps the most likely thing for you to expect to find would be some pumps? Not so, according to Ericatoure Aviance. Instead, the original cover just shows Ms Aviance. On the remix we find a babe who is wearing a fetching pair of pink and yellow pumps, sitting on a chair with her hands in the air, presumably in protest over the poor standard of the original cover. Aqua!
Another submission from Scotland: Big Country's Fields Of Fire (400 Miles) was apparently one of their biggest hits (though it only got to number 52 in the Billboard Hot 100) in 1983. This remix from Angus MacCoatup shows us exactly what fields of fire look like. That is if you can see beyond the nude girl in the foreground. Now if only she would get out of the way, we could admire this hot countryside scene. Then again, perhaps it is hotter with the girl standing there.
If ever a song were cut out to have its cover remixed, it's this 2006 song from country chicken Kellie Pickler. What a chance she missed to have a classic cover when she released Red High Heels. Small Town Girl she might be, but that doesn't mean that the cover has to have a small town feel to it. The remixed version is how it should have looked. A curvy country gal wearing red high heels. And nothing more!
It's vaguely possible to imagine what Leo Sayer is referring to when he jumps into the sky with his arms held out wide on the original front cover of his single How Much Love. What is it that he is grasping for? Perhaps the remixed cover offers some kind of answer. On it we find a babe who, by no stretch of the imagination at all, has a great deal of love. Perhaps that is what Mr Sayer was reaching to grab a hold of? Bosom!
Name 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!
What exactly might Robbie Williams have No Regrets over. If we take the front cover artwork of his single to guide us, it is either going to be doing a belly-flop into a swimming pool and injuring himself, or splasing water over a stocking-clad high-heel babe who is standing by the pool. On the remix is a babe who probably has many regrets, mainly because she appears to be standing outdoors whilst it snows heavily all over her. She does seem rather chilly. Pert!
Some credit is due to the B-52's for the original cover artwork of their single Wig. Why? First, the cover depicts a member of the band, which is always a good start. Secondly, the member of the band appears to be wearing a wig. Mind you, it could be her real hair. On the remix there are no doubts about the fact that the hair of the babe shown is a wig, as no-one in real life has gold, spaghetti hair. The rest of her seems pretty genuine though. Toupee!
It might be fair to say that Lorrie Morgan isn't wrong when she sings I'm Not That Easy To Forget, as she is quite the pretty lady. However, the remix of the original single cover artwork comes with a very big WARNING. Once you have seen it, you will not find it easy to forget as the babe who appears on it is memorable for many of the wrong reasons. Please do not click on the remix unless you have the ability to unetch difficult things from your memory. Depart!
