Hitch-hiking always makes a good topic for a remix here at AllBum.It. Green Day sing on this topic on their single Hitchin' A Ride. On the original cover artwork the three members are standing on a pebble strewn road. On the remix, four babes are standing on a similarly pebbly road, but with their thumbs out trying to hitch a ride. They seem to have decided that being topless might increase their chances of being picked up. They probably have that right. Denim!
Geri (Halliwell as she was then known) a former member of the Spice Girls is telling us to Ride It. This is clearly illustrated on the original single front cover artwork by Ms Halliwell sitting down in a black dress with lots of lens flare. On the remix we can see a babe in red lipstick and red high heels (but little else) who has been given a small red tricycle and told to ride it. It's clearly too small for her, but she isn't giving up. Accelerate!
Here comes Missy Elliott and her album Under Construction. The original front cover artwork shows Ms Elliott sitting by a wall with what, in the 1980s, would have been known as a ghetto-blaster. There is no sign of any construction. On the remix are three mature women standing on a building site, wearing (well, almost wearing) protective clothing. It is a wonder that any construction would take place with them standing around, as they would be very distracting. Dig!
Whilst we are in a Terence Trent D'Arby kind of mood, here's a remix for his album Vibrator. On the original front cover artwork we find Mr D'Arby wearing what appear to be white angel wings. This is not an obvious choice for an album whose title has a very obvious visualization. And on the remix this very obvious visualization has been used as we find a babe holding a vibrator which must belong to Mr D'Arby, otherwise it would make no sense at all. D'Vlish.
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!
Just Walk In My Shoes, that is what Gladys Knight And The Pips are asking us to do. To enact this, we would need to know what those shoes look like. However, the original single front cover artwork does not give any indication of this, making following Ms Knight's instructions somewhat difficult. On the remix we find a babe and her shoes and given how high the heels are, it seems that even the babe herself is struggling to walk in them. Crawl?
To some extent, the original single front cover artwork for Sky Pilot by Eric Bourdon And The Animals does show two aircraft in a dogfight, and the pilot of one of them can be seen in his cockpit. On the remix is a more modern day pilot in the form of a babe who is also sitting in the cockpit of a plane. No sniggering now at a rude looking babe in a location with cock in it's title. Time for a pitstop!
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!
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!
Skip, skip, Skip To The End, skip to the end my darlin'. Oh, wait, that's not how this song by The Futureheads goes is it now? At least the original single front cover artwork helps explain what the song is all about. It's about trees, and an old newspaper. Is it really? Or is is about what is on the remix which is a babe doing her skipping exercises in her leggings and trainers. Oh, wait, her leggings are actually fishnet tights and she has nothing on underneath. That was a silly choice of outfit to go skipping in. Jump!
