It is clear that, on the original single front cover artwork for Outside by Calvin Harris Featuring Ellie Goulding, literally no effort was spared to represent the title of the song in picture format. What is shown is Ms Goulding kneeling down outside what looks like a car-port. On the remix, a young babe is also outside in a car-park but for reasons unknown appears to have removed all her clothes. Fine!
Is there any kind of single artwork that is less interesting than a black cover with just the name of the song and artists listed in white. That is what Mary J Blige Featuring Diddy & Lil Wayne managed to achieve on the cover of Someone To Love Me (Naked). On the remix is a babe who is taking flowers to someone she loves, and she is doing so naked. That is far more appropriate than the original black and white effort. Daisy!
Why would a Small Town Girl be carrying a ray gun? That is the mystery that surrounds the original single front cover artwork of this song by Good Shoes. The remix does not help answer this question, but instead shows a girl from a small looking town, who is wearing a pair of good shoes. That's about all that can be said for this otherwise yellow and uninteresting original cover and remix. Weeds!
We think we know where Candyman was going with his song Knockin' Boots. At least according to the original single front cover, the kind of boots he had in mind are quite clear. Thigh-high, PVC with a stiletto heel. The remix does little other than to zoom out from the original artwork to see what else the babe in the boots is wearing, and would you know it, the answer is nothing at all. Just the Knockin' Boots. Now it becomes clear how they got their title. Bang!
Interesting, in an uninteresting kind of way, isn't it? When Steve Allen Presents Sandy Warner, and calls the album Fair And Warner, what wasn't it thinking about, about thinking fairly about the word fair. Is 'fair', as the original album front cover artwork suggests, just a babe in high heels on a chair? Is the remix any fairer, given there is still a babe, a chair, and some high heels, but now she is outdoors, and other than her espadrilles, she is fairly nude. The fairer sex maybe? Erk!
It's good that Jaheim has organized things so that if there is a problem he will be there Just In Case. There is is on the original single front cover artwork with his bandana and silver chain. Do you feel comforted by this? Or would you prefer to be with the babes on the remix who are carrying what looks like a case of beer. What is just in the case might be beer, what is just outside the case are two naked babes on a sunny beach. You can choose.
What does the First Time look like? If the original single front cover artwork produced by M-22 Featuring Medina is our guide, then the first time looks like two diagonal stripes drawn with a felt tip pen that is running out of ink. On the remix we find a babe who has decided to expose herself in public. How do we know this is her first time? She has made a few rookie mistakes. The biggest of these is that she has knelt down at exactly the height that means that the text on the single cover is covering her singularity (if you know what we mean, as she doesn't). Dunce!
When Marianne Faithfull starts singing about Horses And High Heels, you know you are in for a doozy of an album cover. On the original artwork there is a horse, and next to it some red high heels, so full marks for that. Why both are on a beach and no-one is wearing the high heels is somewhat unknown. On the remix we find a babe wearing high heels, sitting on a horse. It couldn't get any simpler. Fishnet!
Judy Cheeks is Walking All Over My Love with Fascination. To illustrate this, the original front cover artwork of her single shows Ms Cheeks in a sparkly dress and it also appears that one of her fingers has the ability to sparkle too. On the remix, a babe is simply walking away. She may be walking away from love, as she appears to have left all her clothes behind, except for her shoes that is. Stroll!
Come softly, go softly, even stand around doing nothing softly, whichever is your preference, it is the turn of Barooga Bandit to educate us how to do things in a soft way. From the original album cover artwork, it would seem that the prime thing required, is a pair of short-shorts and a bow. On the remix, nothing much has changed other than that the cameraperson has rotated nearly 180 degrees so we can see the front of the shot instead of the rear. Behind!
