She's The One. Is she now? Perhaps Robbie Williams can help. The 'one' that he suggests is illustrated on the original single front cover artwork by a pair of heavily lipsticked lips. That could be one 'one'. The remix shows an alternative 'one' that she could be, in the shapely form of a babe who is very busty but who is sporting a bra that holds everything together, and supports her application to be the 'one'. Or should that be, the 'two'? Maybe we should ask Mr Williams how he feels about it. If not, we shall just have to feel for ourselves. Three!
Don't even get us started on the name of the band when it's called Andy + The Lamboy Versus Dreamgate. What is a lamboy? And why are they versing anyone? The original single front cover artwork for Now We Are Free (Theme From Gladiator) shows a colosseum at sunset (or is it sunrise?) The remix reflects more on the notion of a gladiator rather than the venue where they might perform, and shows a babe standing in a gladiatorial outfit with a big sword. Don't get too close or she'll cut you to pieces. Roman!
It's Sinful! What is? The original front cover artwork for this single by Pete Wylie. All it shows is a pair of eyes looking at something. Of course if the eyes were staring at something they shouldn't be, that might be sinful, but there is no evidence of this. On the remix is a babe who is sitting in the pew at a church wearing nothing other than tartan underwear and high heels which is not what most people would consider to be a suitable outfit for a Sunday. This seems to us to be particularly sinful, if not totally sacrilegious. Iniquitous!
Head Over Heels is the most common name for a single or album here at AllBum.Art. Today it is the turn of Paula Abdul's album of that name. The original cover artwork shows Ms Abdul climbing up some scaffolding. She is lying down and her head is marginally above her heels (not that she is wearing what most people would call heels, them being very flat). On the remix is a babe lying down on a carpet and she is wearing what people would call heels, one of which is above her head, and the other underneath it. Nor is she noticeably fat. Balanced!
It's time to Get Wild, at least according to The NPG (sometimes known as The New Power Generation) it is. The original single front cover artwork may be classed as slightly wild if you consider just putting the title of the track in some vaguely African looking colors. On the remix is a babe who has gone for a walk in the countryside, into the wilderness. She also seems like a bit of a wild babe given that she is flashing her fanny at us through her red fishnet pantyhose. All very wild, and definitely better than just coloring some letters in. Forest!
Another remix for the oddly named Talla 2XLC, whatever that means. There is also little to no meaning of the original single front cover artwork, other than showing the crazy artist's name, and the title of the track, together with a web-site address which takes you to a Techno club. On the remix is a babe who truly shines, sitting on a stool in her shiny latex outfit and shiny patent heels. Though she's only just in her shiny outfit - had she been a little bit bigger, her outlook may not have been quite so glossy. Lustrous!
The Lostprophets thought that a good way to illustrate the name of their song, Rooftops (A Liberation Broadcast) would be to show what looks like a zoomed-in view of some kind of grey-scale heraldic shield. Where are the rooftops and what about the broadcasting? On the remix an angel of a babe is standing on a rooftop, with red wings which is odd, as the picture is in black and white. She had better hope it doesn't get too windy, as she might be blown off. Then again, if she is a real angel, she would just flap her wings and fly. Scarlet!
What could better illustrate Karma Police, than a family queuing up to enter a red circular portal of some kind in which, it would appear, they are likely to fade to red and rotated 90 degrees clockwise? There can be no doubt that this was the thinking behind the original single front cover artwork by Radiohead. The remix is far more straightforward and just shows a busty police officer in her everyday uniform. Well perhaps not every day, just at the weekend. Aroma pickle!
The So Solid Crew have got an invitation, they are asking that we should Ride Wid Us. Sadly, we have no idea what a Wid is and the original single front cover artwork does not help, as it shows a series of frames from what looks like a B-movie horror film (or maybe it was the song's pop video). On the remix is a babe who is sitting on a bicycle of some kind. So is that what a Wid is? Now it all makes sense, though it might be better if the song had been called Ride A Wid With Us. Patois!
Minimalistix were obviously having a bit of an 'off day' when they put together the original front cover artwork for their single Close Cover, as they just adopted some odd picture of piano keys and some blue blobs that their record company no doubt forced upon them. The remix might have been more appropriate (or maybe less so), as it shows a babe who is covering her chest with her blue latex colored hands. The way the picture has been cut, it is close to showing whether or not she has blue latex panties on. It is definitely a combination of close and cover. Platforms!
