Single Covers, Singles Of The 1980s, Fantasy & Cosplay, High Heels, Lingerie, Outdoors, Safe For WorkAnother remix for Fat Larry's Band, and this time it's Nice! Nice, according to the original cover artwork, infers a bride wearing white lingerie including fishnet tights and high heels. Nice would be a good word to describe that apparition. In the remix nothing much has changed other than that the bride is wearing slightly less but otherwise little is changed. Less of a remix and more of a refresh. How refreshing, hand me a cold beer to make life complete.
So what is going on, on the original cover of Zoom by Fat Larry's Band? It seems that there is a babe holding a hack-saw standing amidst a gang of jailbirds, whilst a large guy (Fat Larry himself no doubt) appears to be trying to keep them at bay. The remix is much more zoom-related and has a cute babe holding up the starting flag for a race, as cars zoom past her. Why she would do this naked is not clear, but it probably doesn't need to be, does it? Exhaust!
Brownsville Station don't tell us anything of value with the picture on the cover of their single Smokin' In The Boy's Room (which, we note from a pedantic perspective, with the apostrophe so positioned refers to a room that belongs to just one boy - had it been a room belonging to multiple boys, the apostrophe should have been at the end of the word, e.g. Boys'). Anyhow in the remix we find out who it was that was doing the smoking in the room belonging to one boy: it was a babe, and a topless one at that (no surprises there then). Exhale!
Another Suitcase In Another Hall by Madonna is a song taken from the musical Evita. The original cover artwork may have even been set on the streets of Argentina where the musical is set. The remix sees something very odd occurring. One stocking-clad babe is sealing another similarly attired babe into a suitcase. They do appear to be in some kind of hallway. Why this is happening is unknown, but here at AllBum.Art we surmise that the girl in the suitcase has not paid for a flight ticket and the other girl is trying to stow her away in the aircraft's hold. As for the stockings, your guess is as happy as ours. Behold!
Painter Man by The Creations is perhaps better know for the cover version by Boney M. And the reason why may be clear from the cover of the single. On the original artwork we find the members of the band, standing around looking moody (why do so many bands think that this makes for a good cover?) On the remix we find a mature lady standing in front of a painting. Where is the man that is referred to in the title you ask? Easy, he's behind the behind of the lady, taking the picture and will do some painting shortly. Easel!
I Missed Again, or at least that is what Phil Collins tells us. On the original cover artwork, we can see that Mr Collins has indeed missed a little, in that his upper torso is offset from his lower torso. On the remix we find a woman who seems to have been aiming to piss in a pot, but has missed. Presumably she misses often, otherwise she would not have missed again, but just missed for the first time. Perhaps someone could introduce her to a toilet bowl? Panhandler!
Another AllBum.Art remix for Bobby Brown, this time for his single Humpin' Around. Now a song with such a suggestive title owes itself a pretty good cover, right? Not so. Though a picture of Mr Brown clicking his fingers in a potentially jovial mood may be some people's dream of humpin', ours is a little less abstruse. On our remix you will find a babe being literally humped around by a guy in what appears to be the corridor of a hotel. Bellboy!
Look Away, go on, avert your eyes. Turn the other cheek. Divert your gaze. That is what Big Country would have us do but then again, the original cover of their single is so uninspiring that looking at something else is definitely a better option. On the remix we find a babe strolling along a harbor front wearing nothing at all. Though it is common decency to look away, the guys passing her as she walks seem to have failed to do so. So it's up to you - stop looking. See, difficult isn't it? Leer!
Hello This Is Joanie (subtitled The Telephone Answering Machine Song) deserves to get Paul Evans a vote for one of the most tantalizingly dull single covers ever. Instead of showing us who Joanie is, he insists on just showing us the other end of the phone line. We, however, have managed to find a picture of Joanie making the call, and wouldn't you know it, she's a hot babe standing around naked in a phone box. Now it becomes clear why he is so intent on leaving a message on her voicemail. Hello indeed!
What does Love Like A Fountain look like? Well (well - get it?), according to Ian Brown, it looks like a very badly scrawled picture of his face. Then again, some may argue that the aesthetics of such a picture are counter-pointed by the underlying juxtaposition of the colors and the brush-strokes. But they would be talking shit. The remix shows what love like a fountain looks like, or at least what love near a fountain might look like. It looks like a fountain, with two lovely babes. Squirt!
