We get the idea of the original single cover artwork for Barefootin' by Robert Parker, which is that some three footed person has painted their feet a different color then walked across the cover. A nice try for sure, and it must have been difficult to have found someone with three feet. On the remix, an alternative view of the song's title, as we find a cute young babe waking barefoot across a sandy beach. And it's not just her feet that are bare. Dunes!
So let's see now, MFSB's idea of what to put on the original single front cover artwork for a song called Sexy is some roses floating in the wind above the sea. Maybe that's what classes for sexy in Philadelphia? On the remix we find a sexy looking babe, who is pouting in a sexy way, and who is wearing a sexy necklace and has her eye make-up done all sexily. Presumably she wouldn't make the cut in Philly? Sexy!
What does a Joyride look like? According to Roxette, it looks like an elephant, some light bulbs and some nondescript theater scenery props. Not for AllBum.Art! For us, it looks like an old fella being ridden by a young girl who is way above his pay grade. Then again, maybe he has paid for this particular joy. Does he look like the kind of guy who would do that, and does she look like the kind of babe who would accept that. Scenery!
My Friend The Sea is who Petula Clark sings about. Good for her! But on the original single cover artwork, if Ms Clark is standing near the sea, this is not clear as the beach is totally out of the shot. On the remix we find a babe who is definitely good friends with the sea and we know this because she is enjoying a stroll along the beach at sunset (or it is sunrise) and looks most chummy with the waves. Splash!
Showaddywaddy tell us that You Got What It Takes, but the original single cover artwork tells us only one thing - that whoever designed it didn't have what it takes. Thankfully, we here at AllBum.Art have got what it takes, to remix artwork that is. On the remix we find a babe who has got what it takes, to entice us to join her amidst her red bed sheets. Scarlet!
So Phil Fearon thinks that he is so good that he sings I Can Prove It. Who does he think he is, Einstein? According to the original front cover artwork for his single, he is having a double take at some babe wearing high heel stiletto court shoes. What does that prove? On the remix he is looking at a different babe who is also wearing high heel shoes and has her panties around her thighs. This doesn't really prove anything either, so it's all rather pointless. Sharp!
The one thing that seems to be missing from the original single front cover artwork of Spotlight by Jennifer Hudson is much light. Whilst Ms Hudson's face is lit, if that is by a spotlight then it is clearly in need of a new bulb. On the remix we find a babe who is in an equally dark place but whose spotlight has got a shiny new bulb in it, as it is lighting her up very successfully. Why she is leaning on a wall in nothing but her lingerie is another mystery. Trouper!
Pete Wingfield sings about someone who is 18 With A Bullet in this single, but on the original cover artwork we just find Mr Wingfield himself reading a magazine in his kitchen (it looks like he might be eating breakfast). So who is this mysterious 18 year old, and what's the story with the bullet? In the remix these questions are solved as we find a teenage babe holding a rifle in her hands. Is it loaded with bullets? We don't know but perhaps it's best not to ask. Kalashnikov!
Another remix for Kate Bush, this time for her 1985 album Hounds Of Love. On the original album cover artwork we find Ms Bush lying down with two mutts who she seems to like, so nearly full marks for sticking to the brief and showing off the singer and the title of the album. On the remix we find a different babe with two similar looking hounds. She is taking them for a walk, for some reason toplessly. Doggy!
