If there's one thing we've learnt, here at AllBum.Art it's that people seem to really like remixes that involve an angel, as it is the most searched-for term on the whole web-site. Today, Jon Secada brings us his take on an Angel by standing in a check jacket against a white background, at least that is what the original front cover of his single shows. On the remix we find a true angel, which we know on account of her having large white wings and matching lingerie (only true angels match their lingerie to their wing color). She seems to be standing in a dirty alleyway with insufficient room to spread her wings. Maybe she needs Mr Secada's help to get free. Resurrection!
Outkast are probably best known for singing Hey Ya. Today, though, it is the turn of their single So Fresh, So Clean to get remixed. On the original front cover artwork you can see the band members looking, well, looking, there's not much more to it than that. On the remix is a babe who wants to be so fresh and so clean. So much so that she has decided to take a bath in an old tin tub, by the side of a lake. If she wasn't so dirty, she could have waited to wash until she got home. Soap!
What is Inside? According to the original single front cover artwork by Stiltskin it is an eye set in the middle of what looks like the rings of a cut-down tree. Not very environmentally friendly of them. On the remix is a babe who is tempting you to go inside her hotel room. The tempting is being done by her wearing nothing other than her white high heel shoes. Be careful though, because she isn't actually showing you what is inside. It might be her, but there might be a trap there too, that you can't see behind the door. Attention!
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!
