Ah yes, the song made infamous by the misguided miming of a million drag artists, One Day I'll Fly Away was probably one of the biggest hits of Randy Crawford. The original cover shows a happy, smiling Ms Crawford which in one way is good (it shows the artist) but in another doesn't really reflect the melancholy melody of the song. The remix shows an angel, stuck on the ground, who longs to fly back to heaven. Angelic!
Wishing On A Star is both a 1978 single by Rose Royce and a 1993 album of their greatest hits (which not surprisingly includes the eponymous single). The original cover shows a star which is what we are wishing on, but it lacks a certain certainty about whether it is certain that the wish will succeed. The remix shows that there are stars that can be wished on where your wish will certainly come true. With or without the star! Pointy!
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!
