The Cure are High. Maybe that isn't unexpected for an indie rock band. The original single front cover artwork does nothing to dispel this myth with a drawing of a pschetschuan morn-kepp (we have no idea what it really is, but this seemed as good a name as anything). On the remix is a babe who would be very high indeed if she were to stand up, on account of the height of the heels she is wearing. Perhaps it is best that she remains sitting down. Panel!
What goes on in a Magic Hotel? Toploader are going to show us. According to the original front cover artwork for their album, a magic hotel is nothing more than a rundown school bus against which you can lean. Nothing magic about that. On the remix is a babe standing in the corridor of a different magic hotel, and the magic of this one is that it has made her clothes become see-through. Be careful of the fire exit. Whalenet!
What can you see on the original front cover artwork for the album Sit On It by Jimmy Smith? It looks like a babe sitting on an electronic piano, or an organ as some might call it. On the remix is a different babe sitting on a piano stool, next to an analog piano, not an electronic one, nor an organ. She looks like the type that might enjoy sitting on an organ though, if someone asked her nicely. Tulip!
An Invasion Of Your Privacy, that is what Ratt are illustrating on the original front cover artwork of their album. The privacy being invaded is that of a young babe who is putting on (or taking off) her socks in her bedroom. On the remix we find a babe and her man whose privacy has been invaded by a guy in a suit who has decided that he will hold his hand over his face and pretend not to notice the fact that the couple are both naked and seemingly in the throws of passion. Covered!
Come softly, go softly, even stand around doing nothing softly, whichever is your preference, it is the turn of Barooga Bandit to educate us how to do things in a soft way. From the original album cover artwork, it would seem that the prime thing required, is a pair of short-shorts and a bow. On the remix, nothing much has changed other than that the cameraperson has rotated nearly 180 degrees so we can see the front of the shot instead of the rear. Behind!
What is a Monokini? Let's turn to the original album cover artwork by Stereo Total to find out. It would seem to be, as far as is visible, hidden. The babe on the front cover is sitting in such a way that she is hiding her monokini, bikini, trikini or any other kind of kini. The babe on the remix is wearing a kini made of a single strip of cloth, which is what, it might be presumed, a monokini looks like. Mobius!
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!
The Supreme Beings Of Leisure though that the Last Girl On Earth would be sitting in a 1960s pod chair wearing a white tunic. But check again, because on the original single front cover artwork there are two more girls in the background, one in a bikini and the other in a pink dress. So not the last girl at all? On the remix we find a babe riding a rocket in space. She may be the last girl, but the problem here is that she isn't on Earth. Zap!
The Beat or The English Beat as they were also known, spared almost no effort whatsoever in preparing the front cover artwork for their single Hands Off... She's Mine. All you can see is the band members and a drawing of a triangular ear-ring wearing babe, though they have not got their hands on her. On the remix we find a babe who has got her hands on, whilst indicating to others to keep their hands off. She's mine!
Another song with an invisibility theme, is Invisible by Alison Moyet. On the original single front cover artwork you can see Ms Moyet apparently covered by a see-through material of some kind that is largely invisible, so full points for effort there. On the remix we find a babe who has taken this to the next level and is standing in a hallway in see-through, or shall we call it invisible, clothing. Tiling!
