The original cover of Rose Royce's 1976 disco classic Car Wash is, to put it simply, garbage. It shows what? The word 'car wash' that's been extended into 3D by some fourth grade design student and the words 'Rose Royce'. Time for a remix to show what it's really all about. And what it's really all about is simple - babes hanging out at a car wash. Like the babe pictured who's so busy soaping up her engine that she's not noticed that her boobs have fallen out of her top. Never mind, she'll no doubt get plenty of tips.
Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel. Is that so? If it is, then why isn't the cover of this 1970s disco classic from Tavares providing any indication of who, what or where she might be. Thankfully, we have found her and restored the cover of the single to its full glory. And glory, glory, hallelujah. If that's what angels in heaven look like, then if one of them is missing, better get looking, 'cos you can bet that if she gets found by anyone she'll be missing for all eternity.
And please say to me, you'll let me hold your hand - I Want To Hold Your Hand, this 1963 single from The Beatles proclaims. But the cover leaves many questions unanswered. Who is it that wants to do the hand holding, the whole band or just one of them? And whose hand is it they want to hold? The remixed cover solves these issues and shows that the holder and holdee are both hot babes and look (as if you needed telling), one of them appears to be buck naked. No wonder they wanted to hold her hand.
An album so obscure that even the artist Roger King Mozian doesn't have an entry on Wikipedia, Just Mozian Along caught the attention of the AllBum.Art team because of the hapless Mr Mozian sitting on a horse. Why was this of interest? Simply because of the picture of the naked babe on a horse that replaces Mr Mozian himself. A fair replacement and a good use of a picture of a nude model on a pony. We can think of a better use.
Steppin' back in time, jive bunnies, to the rolling, rocking 1950s and this single from Bill Haley and his Comets. The original cover of Rip It Up shows the head of Big Bad Bill, but no evidence of any kind of rippin' going on. The remix remedies this with a hot chic whose clothes have been ripped up. Who exactly has done the rippin' is unknown, but it looks like she did it herself. Why? Who cares!
Perhaps not the most well-known version of the song Itsy Witsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, but this one from Ron Smith has a cover that desperately needs a remix. And what a remix. The bikini on the babe on the new cover is so itsy bitsy and teenie weenie that all the polka dots have become invisible. The bikini itself is only just visible in this dimension. Surely the modern version of what Mr Smith (and others like him) thought about when they sang the song?
What do Midwinter Graces look like? According to the original album cover artwork by Tori Amos, they look like floating around in the sky in a flowing dress. But isn't that one grace, not two? On the remix we find two babes, both of whose names are Grace, and who have decided, on a snowy midwinter's day, to go about their business wearing naught but high heeled boots and a scarf. There must be something about Graces that allows them to do this without freezing to death. It must be to do with floating around in a dress. Confused!
If this isn't one of the most obvious remixes for cover artwork ever, Drunk Girls by LCD Soundsystem then the word 'obvious' is obviously getting confused. On the original cover artwork for the single, we find the band members, only one of whom is a girl, and who does not look particularly drunk. On the remix we find three girls who may not be drunk, but given that they are naked and have a dazed smile on their faces, we shall give them the benefit of the doubt. Naturist!
I Like Beer, is what Tom T Hall tells us. From the look of the original single cover artwork, it seems he likes more than just beer, but guns and playing cards too. On the remix we find three babes who like beer, and for some reason enjoy drinking it whilst sitting around with their dressing gowns undone by a table made out of an old barrel. No guns here though, but maybe they lost their clothes through a poker game? So possibly there were playing cards around earlier. Ante!
The Dead Kennedys are apparently Too Drunk To Fuck. Exactly how this manifests itself is not that evident from the original single cover artwork which shows a black and white image of a guy putting a bottle into a bin. Perhaps he is too drunk to fuck, but it doesn't look as if he's in the mood for it either. On the remix we find a babe who looks as if she is in the mood, but has had one too many cocktails. Best to leave her alone. Tequila!
