As we often say at AllBum.Art, sometimes our remix of original single or album cover artwork is inspired by the name of a track, and sometimes by a picture. This one was inspired by a picture of a bootisome babe Sittin' On A Fence, and luckily there was a single by Twice As Much that did the honors. The original cover needs a remix too, as it just shows the band members looking sad. Cheer up and go join the babe sittin' on the fence. Windbreak!
Hi-Tension sang about the British Hustle, which is presumably something like American Hustle but with a Dick Van Dyke accent. The original single cover artwork suggest that this may be the case. The remix tells a different story and we find out exactly how the British like to hustle, which seems to be by having a cute English babe wear Union Jack shoes and a t-shirt and flashing her ass at us. Go Britain!
We really like the original front cover artwork for the single Rocket by Def Leppard. Not only does it show the name of the band, and the title of the song, but the title of the song has been deftly changed into the shape of a rocket. Clever! The remix adds very little other than a cutesy babe riding a rocket of her own wearing a latex leotard. And she can't hear very well because of her space helmet. So she is a deaf leotard riding a rocket. Clever!
Love City Groove with their self-titled single of the same name are, so we are told by wikipedia, Britain's entry to the 1995 Eurovision Song Contest which is some kind of annual European event where countries compete to win a prize for having the worst song. Anyhow, the original cover artwork is little short of anything as it only shows the band's name (or the song's name as these are interchangeable). On the remix we find a babe sitting down in Love City (wherever that happens to be) and she is definitely groovy. Sidewalk!
On the original single cover artwork to Yellow River by Christie, do we get any indication what the nature of this river is? No, we just find the band members who look as puzzled as we are by the nature of this saffron stream. Well boys, our remix helps understand the nature of this amber flow. It is caused by some helpless babe who has got caught short and has had to release her golden shower onto the nearby pavement causing, as it happens, a yellow river to form. Flaxen!
In the 1970s when Marc Bolan of T-Rex told women around the world to Ride A White Swan, few, if any, had the slightest idea what he was talking about. Although the original cover artwork suggests that this means mounting a white swan and taking a ride, this was, at least in the 1970s both impractical and dangerous. Thankfully time has moved on an on the remix we find a babe who is literally riding a white (well more silver actually) swan. By a swimming pool of course. Cygnus!
Mary Star Of The Sea, that is who Zwan have titled their 2003 album. On the original front cover artwork there is some weird Beatles-esque Yellow Submarine style psychedelic illustration but no sign of Mary. On the remix, Mary has appeared and is standing in the sea by some old, rotten wood which if it fell into the sea would drift and become driftwood. Mary ought to be careful that she doesn't get a splinter, as she has forgotten not just her wet-suit but even her bikini. Splash!
Have Queen made a Breakthru as the title of their single suggests? if you define breakthru as having the band members peering through a slit on the original cover artwork then maybe. Have we at AllBum.Art made a breakthru with the remix? Sadly not. But what we have achieved at least is to put a queen on the cover, and maybe that is sufficient of a breakthru to merit having the remix. Then again, maybe it isn't but who's counting? The King?
When Tal Bachman tells us that She's So High, we would kind of expect the single cover artwork to help explain who she is and why she is so high. But no, we just find a picture of Mr Bachman (well he is Canadian after all). On the remix we find that she is a 1940s style pin-up girl, and the reason she is so high is because she is hanging on a ladder up in the clouds. Maybe it's hanging off an airship of some kind (they were around in the 1940s weren't they? even in Canada?) Climb!
Interesting isn't it not? When George Michael sings about A Different Corner, you kind of expect the single cover artwork to have a corner in the shot. Instead it's just Mr Michael walking through a forest. Well if that's how you want to handle it, who are we to disagree and in the remix we find a very similar shot but instead of Mr Michael walking through the forest it is a peachy-assed babe. Now are those peach trees in that forest? Apricot!
