Three, apparently, is The Magic Number according to this 1990 single from New York hip-hop trio De La Soul. Does this refer to the three of them, or some other triple-play? Whichever, the cover of their single provides no enlightenment. The remix provides much more clarity. Three, it would seem, is the magic number of naked chicks. Two is company (sure is). Three is a crowd (sounds perfect).
According to Carl Douglas, everybody was Kung Fu Fighting. If that is the case, then why, in this 1972 cover from Mr Douglas's single, is there only himself who is doing the fighting. A nice remix is necessary. And what better than to add some other people, doing some kung fu? And even better still if that's a hot naked chick. Your wish is our command oh fu man chu!
What? What is it? What do you mean 'I can see where this is going'. Of course you can. Rod Stewart is singing about someone else Wearing It Well, yet his cover shows him - egotist! Who was wearing what well, that is the question? Well maybe it was this chick who is wearing her outfit very well indeed. So well that unusually for AllBum.Art she has kept her outfit on. See. It didn't go where you expected now did it?
Album Covers, Albums Of The 1980s, Single Covers, Singles Of The 1980s, Special Remixes, Halloween Hits, Fantasy & Cosplay, Not Safe For WorkAnyone of a certain age remembers the video for Thriller by Michael Jackson. If you don't, think Glee with Zombies. But the cover of his 1982 album shows no signs of the dancing Zombie nature of the video, or the cackles of Vincent Price on the soundtrack. And so, Mr Jackson's cover has been remixed to show a Zombie. Whether this one can dance is unknown, but perhaps she is getting lessons from Mr Jackson now that he is six feet under?
Enjoying the disco vibes from yesterday's cover remix from Odyssey, another of their songs raised its head as needing a remix. Use It Up And Wear It Out's original cover sees the band standing around hugging each other. So what is worn out about that? Well right behind them was the girl seen in the remix whose t-shirt is clearly used up and worn out. No doubt the band were trying to cover her embarrassment. No need for that, now is there?
A song such as Going Back To My Roots by Odyssey deserves a right rampant remix. The first line of the song (and the chorus) is Zippin' Up My Boots. Well it is if you ignore the 'Adji Moar Ay' stuff at the very beginning. What that's about is anyone's guess. So boot zippin' fun it is, with the remix. In fact it's boots and not a lot else, but by now that should be no less that you've come to expect from AllBum.Art!
As with yesterday's remixed cover art, today's effort from Starship was also inspired by the picture on the remix. We Built This City is one of those songs that is probably being played by some radio station or other, somewhere across the country, at all times. In fact it might be a covert way of triggering nuclear war. If the song stops being played, that's the secret cue to launch. Better get your requests in on your local FM station then. And when you do that, let them know about the merits of using the cover remixes provided for you for free at AllBum.Art.
It is fair to say that Motorcycle Emptiness by the unheard of Manic Street Preachers is only here for one reason. That reason is because the title of their 1992 song has the word 'motorcycle' in it, and something just had to be done with this picture of a hot chick leaning naked on a hot bike. And the fact is that there are not many songs with motorcycle in the title so the choice was rather limited.
Three Times A Lady, right? Not if you're the designer of this cover from the Commodores' 1978 single. No, no ladies at all. Just a rather poor picture of the band - done six ways. Not three, but six. Time for a remix then, and what do we see in the remix? Once. Twice. Three times a lady. Three ladies. And there's no doubt they're ladies either, not wearing those outfits. Or not wearing them to be more precise.
Today it is the turn of Sailor and their song A Glass Of Champagne to get the full remix treatment by AllBum.Art. On the original cover we find the band looking somewhat like sailors but with no apparent connection to any kind of sparkling wine, whether Champagne, Prosecco, or something else. On the remix the band are gone, as are any nautical connotations, but instead we find a babe drinking a glass of what looks very much like fizzy stuff from France. Bubbly!
