We don't know who Jem necessarily is, or why she wants Just A Ride. Oh, wait, Jem appears on the front cover of her original single artwork so at least we know what she looks like, but what is the ride she is either wanting or offering? On the remix we find a babe standing on a cobbled street in high heels and stockings and holding an umbrella. It seems she could do with a ride, especially as she seems to have forgotten some of her clothes. Or maybe the guy is offering her just a ride. Pick up!
Sometimes it's lovely to be Down By The Water, and so, it seems, does PJ Harvey. It seems that her take on being by the water is to smoke a cigarillo, because that is all which can be seen on the original single front cover artwork. On the remix we find a babe who is not just down by the water, but is already partially in the water. Maybe she is getting down by the water, as her stance is that of a dance. Maybe she is in France (only because it rhymes with dance and stance). Glance!
Barbara Stephan brings us her single The River. On the original single front cover artwork we find Ms Stephan looking up at us through a fuzzy piece of glass. There isn't much of a river visible, unless it is a river of fuzziness. On the remix we find a babe who is taking a dip in a river. She seems to have forgotten to wear her swimming costume, bikini, or indeed any clothes at all. Perhaps her brain was overloaded with some kind of water-fuzz, should such a thing exist. Perhaps Ms Stephan could help her. Bank!
Cliff Richard claims to be Wired For Sound. On the original single front cover artwork, he is at least standing in front of a microphone which presumably is wired up to some equipment, though it could be a radio microphone in which case it would be wireless. Then again, it was the 1980s so, yes, it's more likely to be wired. On the remix we find a babe standing on a rooftop wearing headphones that are not wireless, as the wire can clearly be seen casting a shadow on her body. And wouldn't you know it, her wireless bra has fallen off, as have many other of her clothes. Bluetooth!
Another remix for Darius. On the original single cover artwork for his song Colourblind (or colorblind as we would write it in the US) (or black and white as Jack who works in the web development team says it should be called) we find just an image of the lead singer. On the remix we find a babe who is walking along a beach wearing multi-coloured (multi-colored) socks and carrying a blow-up beach bed in the same colour-scheme (color-scheme). Those heels on that sand are not a good idea. Nor are certain other elements of her outfit. Wrap!
It is a well known fact that a Red Light Spells Danger. Traffic signals are a good example. Pass the red light and you are in danger. Is this what Billy Ocean was trying to tell us on the original cover artwork of his single? Walking along in a suit, with a vaguely red background. Is that dangerous? On the remix is a different kind of red light danger, one that involves babes, standing on streets, in lingerie. We all know what kind of danger that presents to your health. Scarlet!
Whilst we're dealing with Bruno Mars Bar, here's another remix. The original single front cover artwork for Gorilla shows what appears to be a naked babe lying down on a bed next to a gorilla. The remix turns the clock back an hour or so to when the same babe was enticing the gorilla into her grasp by offering him a banana, which the gorilla seems keen to accept. The question is whether he is more interested in the banana than the babe. Monkey!
Tinchy Stryder (is that even a real name) is Featuring Melanie Fiona and together they are going to Let It Rain. This is clear from the original single front cover artwork, because, well, it's purple. On the remix, it is much clearer as we find a babe standing underneath her umbrella which is a shade of Stryder Purple (as we shall now call it). It's good job she is carrying her umbrella as if it is let to rain she would otherwise get very wet. Forest!
What is High Enough for the Damn Yankees? If the original single front cover artwork is our spirit guide, what is high enough is just to repeat the words 'high enough' several times. The remix shows a babe who is waling around in a pair of boots whose heels are high enough for anyone, in fact they are so high, she has had to duck down to avoid hitting her head on the metal structure that is above her. She should be careful not to trip. Down!
Imagine precipitation. Now imagine Wendy Moten is inviting you to Come In Out Of The Rain, which, according to the original single front cover artwork, means sitting down with her and her multicolored jacket. On the remix is a babe who needs to come in out of the rain as she is standing outside in the precipitation by a beach. She is lucky enough to have an umbrella to keep her dry, but she has nothing else to keep her dry. She really should come in out of the rain before she catches a cold. Transparent!
