Foals have at least attempted to represent the title of their song Balloons using an illustration of air filled flowery cloth on the original front cover artwork for their single. Black clouds seem to be floating around amidst the balloons, or are they meant to be some other kind of airborne thing. The remix simply shows a babe, holding some balloons, nothing more complicated than that. If only everything in life was so simple. Hot air!
Is The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy) the longest title for a song here at AllBum.Art? Without going through each on and checking, we may never know. The band concerned, Harpers Bizarre don't seem phased by the length of the title on the original single front cover artwork, standing around a lamp-post. On the remix we find a babe standing underneath a bridge who seems equally unfazed even though there are large holes in her dress. Balustrade!
What would you expect to find on the original single front cover artwork for Shoes (Johnny And Louise) by Reparata? Perhaps some shoes? Well that is precisely what you do find though the aforementioned shoes appear to be floating in the sky. It was the 1970s after all. On the remix is a babe standing on one leg in some very high heeled shoes. It is a wonder that she can keep her balance at all, though perhaps that is why there are cushions behind her. Stork!
Who doesn't like a little Sunshine now and again? Maybe Jonathan Edwards doesn't. Why would we make such a claim? Simply because on the original single front cover artwork, there is no evidence of any sunshine, just a grubby looking Mr Edwards and his microphone. On the remix we find a babe who looks as if she is used to enjoying the sunshine, standing around in a piece of clothing that would let the rays shine through. Pert!
Bonnie Tyler is Lost In France. Perhaps she should have bought a map, or even asked someone for directions. Then again, perhaps she doesn't speak French. Whichever it is, on the original single front cover artwork there is no specific evidence of this lack of direction as all we see is Ms Tyler with a light shining behind her. On the remix is a babe who is definitely lost, and that long boulevard she is standing next to definitely has a French style to it. She is more than geographically lost though, as she has lost all her clothes too. Found!
Easy Tiger! That is what this album by Ryan Adams is entitled. This love of endangered animals is illustrated by Mr Adams sitting on a bench, smoking a cigarette. Everything is in black and white, except for his digital watch face which for some mysterious reason is green. On the remix we find a babe painted to look like a tiger who is crawling up (or is it down) some stairs. She had better be careful not to rub that paint off on the woodwork. Easy now!
Here are Peabo Bryson And Roberta Flack and Tonight I (or they) Celebrate My (or their) Love for you (or maybe for each other?) At least on the original single front cover artwork, they do seem to be enjoying each other's company. On the remix we find a bride, dressed in white, who seems to be ready to celebrate her love in the age honored fashion of singing this old 80s song while holding a bunch of flowers. Rose!
It seems that James's idea of a Gold Mother, is some kind of blurred, watery image of what could possibly be Mary, but could just about be anyone if the original album front cover artwork is a reflection of their opinion. The AllBum.Art opinion on what constitutes a gold mother, is a mature golden-haired babe, wearing a gold basque, and gold high heel shoes. A sexy gold mother [insert your own word to complete the sentence here]. Flim?
Release Me, or release you, or release someone (or something). Whichever of these are correct, the original single cover artwork by Englebert Humperdinck does not indicate who or what needs releasing. Instead we find Mr Dorsey (for that is his real name) looking at something. Perhaps the thing he is looking at is the babe on the remix whose ankles seem to have been tied up with a whip. And maybe it is her who needs releasing and Mr Dorsey is singing on her behalf. Untied!
Another remix for Everything But The Girl and this time it is their hit Wrong. And there is plenty that is wrong with the original single front cover artwork. Especially the camera work which is so badly blurred that it is impossible to see what it is meant to be. On the remix we find a busty babe who is not blurred. What is wrong with that? We could tell you what is wrong but maybe you would like to work it out for yourself. Boy, oh boy!
