When Champaign sang How 'Bout Us, they forgot on important thing... when you make the cover for the single, don't use a picture of a pair of shoes. What on earth does that say about us? Maybe they had drunk too much champaign[sic]. Thankfully the remix really does ask the question how 'bout us? Where shall we start? How 'bout them girls then fellas? Would you? We're not sure we would. Testy!
Fans of Satan's Cheerleaders will already be aware that their songs are not normally about cheerleaders. In that respect the remix of their 2012 album cover is a bit of a misnomer because we have replaced the cartoon of a dog almost being run over by a car with a naked cheerleader, which is not strictly accurate. Then again, do you need an excuse for a picture of a naked cheerleader? No, we thought not, especially on Friday 13th. Pom pom!
S Club 7 sang Never Had A Dream Come True back in 2000. And it's easy to see why. On the cover of the single, the band seem to be lounging around doing very little rather than getting up of their butts and going to find the dream they so desperately seek. We have made it easier for you by including a dream girl on the remixed cover. Now if only she could come true... Tantalizing!
It seems that when putting the original artwork for the cover of their single Everybody's Changing together, British band Keane thought that the best way to symbolize people changing was to show a telegraph post at a jaunty angle. No, no, no! The best way to symbolize changing is to show two babes changing out of their clothes in a nice garden. Isn't it? Flowers!
We at AllBum.Art try to respond to comment and criticism and do get the occasional message saying that we focus far too much on producing remixes of artwork that use hot young babes and that we should use pictures of older women and not be so ageist. The past couple of days remixes have responded to those criticism as does today's. It Started With A Kiss, or so Hot Chocolate would have us believe. The original shows the bald back of the head of the lead singer Errol Brown. The remix shows a relationship that may well start with a kiss, but looks set to go a lot further very quickly! Mature!
Following on from yesterday's decision as to whether you Shoulda Woulda Coulda hit it off with an older lady, today you find yourself in the unfortunate position of discovering that she is a cuckoo short of a Swiss wall clock and rather than getting away with some older woman action, you find she is sitting on your back in a most uncomfortable position. Or so the remix of the cover of James song Sit Down would have it. Whether you would have it depends on whether you Woulda or not? Decisions decisions!
So there you are, minding your own business, when an older woman approaches you and makes it very clear that she is interested in more than just chatting with you. How she makes this clear is by revealing that, with the drop of a floral dressing gown she would be naked. What do you do? Do you go for it, or do you walk away. If no one would find out what would you do? This may be the question that Shoulda Woulda Coulda is addressing in this song by Beverley Knight. Then again maybe it's undressing not addressing. Either way, decide for yourself. Decisions!
Isn't it great when artists co-operate on a single. Maybe. But then again when the name of the artist becomes Jason Nevins Presents U.K.N.Y. Feat. Holly James, perhaps that's a bit too much co-operation. The original cover of I'm In Heaven shows Holly James in a purple hue. Nice. But better still, the remix shows an angel who appears to have fallen to Earth, so not strictly in heaven, but if you bumped into her we are sure she would take you there with her on her way back up. Vertical!
This remix of Doop by Doop is just a thinly veiled excuse to use a picture of a thinly veiled pin-up babe. Beyond that there's not much to add except to say, 'doop doop deeby dabby doo-doo-doop' ad nauseum until such time as the song is so deeply engraved in your brain that the only thing you can think of day, night and all times inbetween is doop and yet you don't actually know what doop means which makes it all the more doopy. Doop!
