Creed are apparently positioned With Arms Wide Open. At least that is what we are led to believe by the title of their song. The original single front cover artwork, though, shows only a picture of some hands, so whether their arms are also wide open is not clear. On the remix we find a large lady opening her arms wide. In doing so she has also opened her coat wide and having gotten nothing underneath her coat has revealed her wide open womanliness. With coat open wide wouldn't be such a good title for a song, would it, even if it was more accurate. Flop!
Another flying related remix, this time from Cud and their song Purple Love Balloon (a.k.a. Flotavius Purpolis Passionatum). On the original cover we find an odd interpretation of the song's title, with the purple love balloon in question actually being an egg plant. OK, so it's purple but it's not really a balloon. On the remix we find a babe standing around holding a number of different colored balloons. So as there is no confusion, the specific purple balloon that is the love balloon is indicated by a purple arrow. Aubergine!
We are approaching the end of the runway, or more specifically our rather lengthy season of flying themed remixes. And how do you know this? Well we've been reduced to remixing songs with balloons in their title, such as 99 Red Balloons by Nena. This was a massive hit all over Europe in the 1980s but the original cover lacks not 99 balloons but any at all. The remix still doesn't have 99 red balloons but it does have 15 of them which is a large improvement. Helium!
How better to continue our series of remixes to do with flying than with this classic song from 10cc entitled I'm Mandy Fly Me. On the original cover we find the band strumming their instruments and strutting their stuff. On the remix we find a babe, presumably the aforementioned Mandy, who is clearly a woman that enjoys aircraft as we find her lounging seductively in the engine housing. We think she should probably move before the pilot gets in the plane, maybe it's him that's flying her. Cowling!
Back In The High Life by Steve Winwood was both a single and an album and continues our theme of flying. On the original cover we find Mr Winwood smiling at something, though the picture is so blurry, it's not evident what that something might be. The remix may answer the question, as we find that the pilot of the plane that is taking Mr Winwood to the high life is really hot and is not wearing a traditional pilot's uniform but far far less. Runway!
Yes, we're still remixing songs connected with flying, and today it's Jet Airliner by the Steve Miller Band. The original cover shows Mr Miller singing with his guitar. But where is the jet airliner? Obviously it's in the remix! It's a DC9 and wouldn't you know it but there's a stewardess climbing the stairs to the door. It's breezy and the wind has blown her skirt up to reveal her ass, or is that the pilot stepping on the gas for the engine to the same end. Accelerate!
Whilst we're still on the subject of flying, here's a cautionary tale. Not all flights end up with a happy landing, and here we find Crash by the Primitives. The original cover doesn't show us anything to indicate what has crashed or where, but the remix solves this problem as we find a babe standing in front of a downed aircraft that has presumably crashed. A cautionary tale indeed... always listen to the air hostess when she gives the safety briefing. Here, here and here!
Another in our series of remixes to do with flying. And in this we find that the baggage for miss Miranda Lambert can be claimed at belt 24. That's where the Baggage Claim is, right. But on the original cover we find Ms Lambert standing in front of a sofa with her guitar. Where is the belt of despair where the baggage never arrives, or her suitcase. All a bit disappointing. On the remix we find a babe sitting on her baggage, drinking a glass of wine and waiting to be claimed. Is she lost luggage? We may never know.
What could be more associated with flying than a song called Fly By II (what happened to Fly By I?) by Blue. On the original cover artwork we find the band looking all moody (another of those self-centered, self-serving covers). On the remix we find II babes who are ready for their fly-by, being, by their attire, an air hostess and a pilot. Ready for take-off? Rotate!
