The remix for this 1982 single from the Electric Light Orchestra was prompted by the closure of the local newspaper. Apparently no one reads newspapers any more, they get their news on TV or online. The original cover of Here Is The News shows the band standing on (or in front of) what appears to be the roof of a newspaper office. The remix has brought this right up to date and instead of the newspaper there is a girl with a TV camera. And wouldn't you know it, she's naked. Naked news, now that sounds like a good idea...
Did you even know that Clint Eastwood was a singer? Yes, he had a single in 1969 with a song taken from the movie Paint Your Wagon. The cover of the single I Talk To The Trees shows Mr Eastwood together with Mr Marvin sitting by a camp fire so where are the trees and why are they on speaking terms with them? In the remix we see the forest pixie who they were really talking with who fooled them into thinking they were talking to trees and not some hot nude babe by making a whooshing noise when she spoke. Try it for yourself!
What does Sunrise look like in a place called Angel City? It looks like a babe in a green dress and yellow bra, leaning over on a green background. That is what the band Angel City indicate on their single front cover artwork. On the remix we find a babe standing resting her tired heels against a wall at sunrise. She may well be an angel, though she doesn't have any wings. In fact other than her boots, she doesn't have any clothes at all. Rooftop!
Hey Pete Townshend, is your glass empty? No! As the original cover artwork of your album shows, it is at least half full. Empty Glass indeed. And what's with the two babes and your angel halo. Very odd. Strikingly the remix does have an empty glass, and a babe of class. A classy brassy glass that isn't crass. Yes, we can write lyrics too, two, shooby-doo. Oh, and the babe with the empty glass is also wearing a dress with great finesse, but which only covers that which ought only to be seen by her lover. Deep!
Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavour (On The Bedpost Overnight)? Does My Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavour (On The Bedpost Overnight)? Does Anyone's Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavour (On The Bedpost Overnight)? Maybe Lonnie Donegan knows the answer, or maybe the babe on the remix knows the answer. She seems to be conducting some kind of experiment in which chewing gum and bedposts have become intertwined. Science!
Sheesh! You would think that when faced with the title of a song called Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground, the designers of the front cover artwork for the single by The White Stripes would produce something better than a drawing of someone sitting at a piano playing a piece of music called '3'. On the remix we find a street that is strewn with dead leaves and the ground is most likely dirty. Even if the ground isn't dirty, the babe standing on it is. Cleanse!
Nurse, nurse, where are you. Is that Therapy? Meh. It could be. But one thing over which there is no doubt is that on the original cover, there may or may not be a nurse's eye staring out. On the remix a nurse is peering down at us and as well as her eyes, we can see her tits too. That is because she has, for some unknown reason, decided to undo her sexy nurse outfit. So much is uncertain, perhaps we should leave it there. Then again, perhaps not. Uncertainty!
Baby Can I Hold You, that is the question that Tracy Chapman is asking to anyone who will listen. On the original cover artwork of her single, she is looking very pensive, so maybe she is deliberating over what the answer to her question might be. On the remix some dude is on one knee, talking to a babe who is naked other than for her high heeled pumps. We don't know what he is asking, but it could definitely be concerned with holding her, or even more, who knows? Who cares? Ding!
Kim Wilde is singing about Water On Glass. It is useful that she is singing about this because on the original single front cover artwork, there does not appear to be any glass, nor, for that matter, any water. Of course the water and the glass could be out of the shot, but that would be a little pointless. On the remix we find a babe who seems to be taking a shower and on the shower glass, there is water. And thus the problem is rectified and peace was restored to the citizens of Wilde. Kim!
The original single front cover for Saltwater by Julian Lennon would score quite high on the AllBum.Art rating system. It shows the singer, and assuming that the tear falling from his eye is real, then there is saltwater on there too. In that respect, the remix would score lower, as the singer has been replaced by a busty babe and to add insult to injury, although she is standing in water, it is not by any means certain that it is a saline solution. It could just be a swimming pool. If you don't like it, we can always just remove it from the site?
