Although the front cover artwork for Mya's single says the title of the song is Case Of The Ex, the full title is Case Of The Ex (Whatcha Gonna Do), got that? And how's about that trendy dash above the letter 'y', to just make the picture of the singer zing with ex-case sparkle? On the remix is a babe kneeling down by a case. Is it her ex's case? Possibly, as she seems to be wearing what's left of a bride's outfit. Maybe the dress is in the case, which is what the ex is all about. Gloves!
It's a Watcher's Point Of View (Don't Cha Think)? That is what PM Dawn are asking. To illustrate this, their original single front cover artwork they show us the sea at sunset (or is it sunrise) with the band's name engraved showing outer space. On the remix we see a babe walking down the street and over her left shoulder a guy has the watcher's point of view, with the name of the band suitably engraved over the whole scene. It seems that her dress is very see-through, and although our view shows this, you have to wonder what he is staring at. Pink!
Smooth claim to be Mind Blowin'. On the original single front cover artwork, we can see the singer lying on a couch. The most mind blowin' thing about it is her slightly hypnotic gaze. On the remix a babe seems to be blowin' something that's not there. She is using her mind to simulate some kind of blow, and thus, by definition, is mind blowin'. She has, it has to be added, an almost equally mindful gaze. Now that's tongue-in-cheek smooth. Necklace!
Another remix for Teena Marie and this time she is telling us that I Need Your Lovin' (which we translate as meaning that she needs our lovin'). To give credit where it's due, Ms Marie does look a little needy on the original single front cover artwork. On the remix, the level of neediness has been wound up a notch, as the babe shown standing by a window (and a radiator) looks as if she was ready for lovin' but has been let down and is wondering when her lover will arrive. Better luck next time, eh? No-show!
Album Covers, Albums Of The 1980s, Single Covers, Singles Of The 1980s, Outdoors, Public, Safe For WorkTeena Marie tells us that she is Naked To The World. But on the original cover artwork for her album and single of the same name, she is clearly fully clothed, not naked. And where is the world to be found? On the remix is a babe who is naked and what's more, she is standing in front of a large crowd of people who we shall, for the sake of this remix, call the world at large. Unlike the original artist, she is then naked to the world, and sanity has been restored. Pavement!
Another remix for Simply Red and this time for their song Fake. Interestingly, on the original single front cover artwork all we can see is the lead singer of the band. Is he a fake? Is her perhaps not simply red, but more colors as well? On the remix is a babe who appears to be fake in several bodily departments. Is she also red, simply? Well she is standing against a red background. Does that make her a simply red fake? More than the original cover picture, that much is simply sure. Easy!
It must be unfortunate for The Modern, because Jane Falls Down. This couldn't be clearer from the picture on the original front cover artwork, where it is completely apparent that there is a postage stamp with a picture of the band on it, and the band's name spelled out with an Etch-A-Sketch. On the remix is a babe who has fallen down and in the process it seems her her dress may have fallen down too. She probably shouldn't wear high heels like that in a park. Denim!
The question being asked today by Sultans Of Ping FC is Where's Me Jumper? On the original single front cover artwork, this question is answered by a young boy sitting in bed with his hands over his ears. It's clearly a metaphor, as there is no jumper to be seen. On the remix we find a jumper that is being partly worn by a babe who seems to be a little too hot, as she is considering taking it off. That is where my jumper is. Sweater!
Another remix for The Wedding Present, and to day it is the turn of their single Silver Shorts. On the original front cover artwork is the number 4 and what looks like the background to some bad pixelated 1980s video game but nothing silver, and no shorts. What is it that they were thinking about when they put that one together? On the remix is a babe wearing, guess what... silver shorts. Could it have been any easier to remix this cover? No!
Seamonsters (whoooo, splash). It is an album by The Wedding Present. That has to be stated as the original album cover artwork just shows a number of red < V > type signs floating around on a dark background. On the remix we see two real life seamonsters, who have decided to take a splash about in the sea. Don't get too close because if they start moving too quickly, a vortex will form and you will be lost at sea forever. Whoooo.
