Islands In The Stream, that is what we are. But the original front cover artwork for this single by Kenny Rogers And Dolly Parton tells us nothing more than that both artists can smile. Where's the stream, and what about the islands? On the remix we find a babe on an island by some water which could well be a stream. It's raining and she is using a large leaf as an umbrella. Dry!
Better known for their annoying song about Barbie, Aqua have decided to Turn Back Time. According to the original single front cover artwork, this will be achieved by lounging around on blow-up clocks of some kind. On the remix we find a babe who is wishing she had one of those clocks to turn back time, as for some reason she has found herself standing with just a black hat to cover her naked modesty on a busy street. Cover!
Run. You're trapped in a gloomy forest. Run for your life. That is the message that is received loud and clear from the original single cover artwork of this song by Snow Patrol. On the remix we find a babe standing between two rail tracks in the snow, wearing naught but a scarf. There are many reasons why she should run including an oncoming train, catching cold, or just general stupidity in the freezing cold. Duck!
A special remix for Connie Francis and her song I'm Gonna' Be Warm This Winter... Special because usually the single front cover artwork on AllBum.Art is 600 pixels by 600 pixels in size, but this remix is double that at 1200 x 1200, you lucky person. On the original cover you will find Ms Francis in what looks like far from a cold winter scene, and more like a tropical garden. On the remix we find a babe who has dressed up warm for winter in her woolly hat and sweater but then seems to have decided that the sweater works better as a crop-top. She may have to find another way to keep warm this, or in fact any, winter. Bobble!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1990s, Special Remixes, Winter Warmers, High Heels, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkBlur bring us High Cool, and with it some original single front cover artwork that shows a babe in a swimming hat. Firstly, unless she is at the top of a diving board, she is not that high. Secondly, it doesn't look that chilly. On the remix we find a babe who is standing on the side of a snow covered mountain, so she is both high and given there is snow around and she is only wearing boots, no doubt quite cool too. Hilltop!
January is upon us and in the northern hemisphere it's winter and as Cold As Ice, at least that is what M.O.P. tell us. It certainly looks quite chilly on the original single front cover artwork with the ice on the window, or something to that effect. The babe on the remix, though, looks exceptionally chilly, but if she will go out in the snow wearing nothing more than a swimming cap, then she ought to be expect to be as cold as ice. Dive!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1990s, Special Remixes, Winter Warmers, Hairy, Mature, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkWhat would you expect to find when looking at the front cover artwork for the single Flowers In December by Mazzy Star? Perhaps it would be a fuzzy, almost shriveled looking flower head, after all it is usually cold in December. Or would it be, as shown on the remix, two babes out and about in the snow wearing nothing other than fur coats. Maybe both are valid visions of flowers, maybe not. Floral!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1960s, Special Remixes, Halloween Hits, High Heels, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkWe're not really sure whether Dead End Street by The Kinks qualifies as a Halloween Hit, but as it involves the word 'dead', we're going to include it. On the original single front cover artwork, we can see a dreadful montage of the band members holding umbrellas. On the remix we see a babe standing at the end of a street, the dead end that is. She had better be careful wearing nothing but a scarf, stockings and heels as there is no escape from a dead end street. Undead!
We have to hand it to Roger Waters, the cover of his album The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking ably demonstrates some of the pros. It is, of course, perfectly normal to find a naked babe standing by the side of the street with her thumb out trying to flag down a vehicle to give her a lift. So much so that on the remix we have not really changed anything other than the perspective of the camera. Roll on!
