bruno mars grenade 2bruno mars grenade 1Does the hand-drawn blob on the cover of Bruno Mars's single Grenade look like a grenade to you, or more like a Robin wearing an ear-ring? A very poor attempt at a cover. It's a good job that AllBum.Art is here to remix the cover to bring back some sanity. In it, the ear-ring wearing bird is replaced by a different kind of bird, this time one carrying a grenade launcher. Now that's more like it (whatever 'it' is in this context)!

In Da Club - 50 Cent

50 cent in da club remix50 cent in da club 1In 2003 when 50 Cent released In Da Club, his first single, Mr Jackson (for that is his real name) was not that well known. Now we know him well for his hard hittin' hip-rap-hop blend of musings (for that is how we describe it). The thing is, the cover of the single for In Da Club (for that is how it is misspelled) has had the club itself airbrushed out. Thankfully the original cover still exists and in it we can see why Mr Jackson is so interested in 'da' club. It has a naked chick dancing in it (for that is what she is wearing).

Bermuda Triangle - Barry Manilow

barry manilow bermuda triangle remixbarry manilow bermuda triangle 1Mythologically speaking, in the Bermuda Triangle, things disappear. That's the general thrust of this 1980s song by Barry Manilow. On the cover, though, the only thing that has clearly disappeared is Mr Manilow's fashion sense. What would be more convincing would be to see a familiar Bermudan view but with something having obviously disappeared. On the remix Mr Manilow has disappeared but so, it seems, have all the bikinis being worn by a triangle of Mr Manilow's fans. It is not possible to see whether there are other triangles which have disappered too, though it appears that some may have.

It's Raining Again - Supertramp

supertramp raining again remixsupertramp raining again 1With summer here, what better time than to focus on songs about rain! This 1982 song from Supertramp declares that It's Raining Again. The cover of the single, however, has to rate as a 'fail'. Not only is the band not visible, but the only thing to suggest any kind of rain is a picture of a hat. A hat, what about that? Not a cat, in a hat, but a hat, on it's own. All alone. So it's been remixed with a more rainy outlook. Sat, without a hat, is a cat (of a pussy kind).

Here Comes The Rain Again - Eurythmics

eurythmics here comes rain remixeurythmics here comes rain 1There is no particular reason for having a bit of a run on Eurythmics songs other than they make good subjects for remixes. Here Comes The Rain Again is another melancholy performance from the band with a cover which is equally lugubrious, showing the band members sitting looking at a brown wall. No rain though - which is odd. That's why it's been remixed to show the rain, that's come again. And a girl, who seems to be enjoying it. Not so dreary after all, eh?

There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart) - Eurythmics

eurythmics angel playing remixeurythmics angel playing 1There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart) was a top chart pop hit for British band Eurythmics in the mid 1980s. In those halcyon days, the art of producing appropriate (or inappropriate) single covers had not been perfected and we therefore see on the cover, an angel flying through the sky pushing a heart along for the journey. But is that my heart she is playing with? No, it's any old heart. The remix shows an angel that could definitely play with your heart if you let her: But Don't! She is much more dangerous than her appearance let's on.

Can't Take My Eyes Off You - Boys Town Gang

boys town gang eyes remixboys town gang eyes 1This version of Can't Take My Eyes Off You is a 1980s remake of the classic Frankie Valli song of the 1960s by 'Cisco disco dudes Boys Town Gang. But, yuk, what a single cover. The gang seem to be car mechanics and it is completely unclear why anyone would be unable to take their eyes off them, except, perhaps, members of the Village People. The remixed cover keeps the urban garage scene of the original, but replaces the oily dudes with some freaky femmes. Look closely and you will find many things that will draw you in to the remixed album art. Now, can you keep your eyes off it?

Genie In A Bottle - Christina Agulera

christina aguilera bottle in a genie remixchristina aguilera genie in a bottle 1I'm a Genie In A Bottle, you've got to rub me the right way. Those were the instructions given to us in 1999 by Christina Aguilera. Under normal circumstances, being told what to do in that way would result in immediate backlash, but we will give Ms Aguilera the benefit of the doubt. One of the AllBum.Art has the habit of singing the alternative lyrics 'Bottle In A Genie' and this sparked the idea for a remixed cover for the single. In the remixed cover, it is clear that a genie has materialised in the form of a hot chick with no panties on, who is sitting on a bottle. Well 'on' is not really correct, as you can see. Hence the cover for 'Bottle In A Genie' has been born.

Surfin' USA - The Beach Boys

beach boys surfin usa 1beach boys surfin usa 2beach boys surfin usa remix
A triple play from The Beach Boys, and their American classic Surfin' USA especially for the 4th of July. On the original cover the boys are carrying their surfboard on the beach, so thumbs up for a cover that reflects the song. On the first remix is a blonde babe carrying her own surfboard - doesn't anyone want to help her with it? On the second remix is another babe and her board. Why these babes choose to surf naked we don't know, but who's complaining?

Bend Me, Shape Me - Amen Corner

amen corner bend me shape ramen corner bend me shape mBend Me, Shape Me, anyway you want me. That's what Amen Corner believed constituted appropriate lyrics in 1966. Not until Aqua's Barbie Girl in the late 1990s did such submissive lyrics re-appear. The cover shows a doll ready to be bent and shaped, but only a wooden one. How much nicer if the doll was real. In the remix she is and has clearly already been bent. Next comes the shaping.
