A Blue Hat For A Blue Day, is apparently what singer Nick Heyward recommends. How odd, then, that the original cover of Mr Heyward's single, though showing the singer himself, does not provide us with any purview of how blue the day is, what shade of blue the hat is, or who, indeed, is wearing the hat. Thankfully in the remix all of this is made clear though we find that no-one is actually wearing the hat, but is holding it in their hand. Cornflower!
Singles Of The 2010s, Summer Sizzlers, Single Covers, Safe For Work, Angels & Devils, Special RemixesRun Till U Shine. What does that mean exactly? Unfortunately, the original single cover of this track by Andrew Bennett Feat. Sir Adrian does not help at all. A cartoon angel, sitting on a cartoon cloud, wearing cartoon headphones and clicking his/her fingers to the music. Great. But where's the running and shining? Heaven only knows! The remix solves this completely as we a see a beautiful bikini-clad babe running along a beach in the sunshine. Beauty!
The original single cover artwork for Strings Of Life (Stronger On My Own) by Soul Central Feat. Kathy Brown shows what exactly? The nose and lips of who? Maybe it's Kathy Brown but this is not clear. It is also not clear how the strings are to make things stronger. Thankfully, we at AllBum.Art have been able to illustrate how the strings were meant to work. As you can see, the otherwise naked babe has been tied up. The strings give support to her torso and make her stronger. On her own. Knotty!
Yo, yo, yo! Flo Rida to the A to the K to the O to the N. OK, so we should steer away from the whole rap thing. But not remixing covers. The original cover of Who Dat Girl shows Flo Rida sitting on a chair but no sign of Akon. Odd that. Also, there's no indication of 'who dat girl' is. Thankfully that's easy to fix and in the remix we can see who 'dat' girl is. If you look carefully, you will see that the chair has also been replaced by a stool. Oh, and all her clothes have fallen off. Mysterical!
News arrives at the AllBum.Art headquarters from Alan Preston of Macclesfield, England of a revival of an old 1970s song. Leap Up And Down by St Cecelia was apparently banned from radio in England when it was first released but is having a new lease of life as a summer party song. We can see why as the title lends itself to many a happy summertime party. The original cover shows the band leaping around with some womens' knickers in their hands. The remix shows a babe of around the same era who is not leaping as much, but who is waving her knickers in the air. Thanks for the remix Alan. Float it brother!
What must Fool's Garden have been thinking when they sat down to work out what images to put on the front cover of their album Dish Of The Day? One thing that is for certain, is that they were not thinking very literally. A hand-drawn fish is not dishy, just fishy! The remix is dishy, and shows a hot babe preparing something in a kitchen. And she seems to be preparing for something as well. Stirring!
A Family Affair - dangerous thing - brothers and sisters, mothers and sons, all very incestuous and nepotistic. None of these issues is truly reflected on the original cover of the single. In the remix we see two sisters who are clearly interested in each other in a way that extends to wanting to see what's in each other's bikini bottoms. We shall leave it there at the risk of stoking the fuel of an inter-familial feud.
Sailing. Conjures up images of long lazy days in the sun with hot babes dancing around the decks, doesn't it. Well apparently in 1975 for Rod Stewart it did not. Instead it conjured up images of Mr Stewart leaning against a brown paper bag. Good job for remixes so that we can correct the image to what it should have been. And wouldn't you know it, in the remix we see a hot babe on a boat, playing with the fox horns. Horny!
