How totally uninventive of the Eagles for the cover of their album The Long Run. It features what... nothing, that is what. Not the band. No-one running. Nothing long. Thank goodness for the remixed cover which shows some babes running. How do we know it is a long run and not a short one? Easy. They are all almost naked and are clearly running to hide their modesties. That kind of run is never a short one, as if you hid your clothes nearby you wouldn't need to sprint. Jog!
The second in our week-long set of remixes of cover artwork by the Eagles. Today it is that classic song Lyin' Eyes. Now it's OK that a band put a picture of themselves on the cover of their singles, indeed that is commended. But it would help if they did something also related to the song. In order to fix that, we have replaced the band with a babe whose eyes are saying something. Are they lyin' or tellin' the truth? It's difficult to tell and that, in itself, is a lie. Or is it? Truth!
A new week, and the start of a week-long series of remixes of cover artwork by classic rock legends, Eagles. For no particular reason, we begin with their 1994 album, Hell Freezes Over. The original cover shows a few flames flickering around the title of the album. Hardly hellish. The remix shows the source of the fire - one of Beelzebub's own messengers has come to stoke the fires of hell. But will it freeze over? In winter maybe. Brrr...
It is Sunday. Amen. So where should we go? Well according to Hozier we should Take Me To Church. What is the attraction with church (other than, of course, eternal salvation from our naughty sins)? It seems to be a weird parrot-human-newspaper-pipework hybrid. No, that won't do. The remix, however, does provide a good solid reason to go to church (other than the aforementioned salvation) and that is that there appears to be a lingerie clad babe waiting to see us. Pray!
It is clear, or at least translucent, why John Barry is smiling so brightly on the original cover of his hit Black Stockings. And why is that? It's because his head is in a position where he is underneath the petticoat of a lady and whose stockings he can clearly see. But times, they are a-changing, and the remix would keep Mr Barry smiling today as we replace his original petticoated babe with a more modern mistress who is both black, and wearing stockings. Keep smiling!
When the Gap Band sing that a babe is Outstanding, and that 'girl you knock me out', there is only one thought that goes through the mind of the team here at AllBum.Art. What is that thought? Well see for yourself. What kind of babe is outstanding enough that she could knock you out? We think that the babe pictured in the remix would fit the bill nicely. Very nicely indeed. So nicely, in fact, that you would have to duck when she turned around to avoid her outstanding features knocking you out. Dive!
It's always a lovely day when the time comes to provide a remix of some cover artwork by Bill Withers, and today is no exception. The original cover of Mr Withers' album Naked And Warm shows Mr Withers looking warm (or at least the sun hat would suggests he is somewhere warm) but is he naked? No. The remix shows a babe who is naked, but how do we know if she is warm? Simple, she is lying down in front of a fire, which makes her hot in very many different ways. A lovely day indeed. Tepid!
Another blazing hot remix, this time for New Flame by Chris Brown who is incapable of making a song in his own right and therefore needs to feature Usher and Rick Ross. We like the original cover of the single, with the seemingly naked babe silhouetted in fire and as such, our remix really doesn't add that much, expect to turn up the heat on the babe in flame and focus more fiendishly on her fiery frame. Yo, yo, yo!
Yes, there's a definite theme in the air here at AllBum.Art. A theme that sets remixes ablaze, a theme of fire and flame. Today is is the turn of Julie Bergan and her single Fire for the treatment. The original cover shows a smiling Ms Bergan but where is the flame, where is the fire? The remix shows a babe behind some fiery flames. It is not Ms Bergan but whoever she is, she needs to be careful as she seems precariously close to the fire. Blaze!
What do you think of, when confronted with the phrase Chariots Of Fire. Well, according to Vangelis it is nothing more than a Roman torch of flame. But here at AllBum.Art our minds don't work that way. When we think of chariots of fire, we think of blazing hot maidens, harnessed in leather, pulling along a chariot. And would you know it, that is exactly what the remix shows. It's almost deja vu. Repeat!
