If there's one thing we particularly enjoy remixing here at AllBum.Art, it's albums or singles with the word 'street' in their title. Why? Because it gives us the opportunity to use a picture from one of our favorite topics, naked babes walking down streets. Don't ask why this is such a fixation with us, just enjoy this remix of Street Songs by Rick James in which the original cover has been replaced by a nearly naked babe on a street. Obvious!
Jackie Wilson tells us, in this classic 60s song, that Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher And Higher. All well and good there Mr Wilson, but just what aspect of the original cover of your single shows us how high this love is lifting you. Is it the sky in the background, or your hand pointing nonchalantly upwards. Either way, the remix does a better job and we see that it is a babe who is doing the lifting, going higher and higher up a ladder. And not one in her stockings either. Rung!
We like the idea used by the designer of the original cover of the single Catch by Kosheen, that being a wild animal who it could be imagined could be caught by some wild poacher with a big shot gun. The remix is far more subtle, but equally catchy. In the place of the wild animal awaiting to be caught, we have a wild babe who has already done some catching and is walking out of the sea with her catch. And juicy and fulsome it looks too. And the fish. Flap!
Who could forget the song, Private Dancer, by Tina Turner. It includes the line, "I'm your private dancer, dancer for money, do what you want me to to". In today's parlance, this would inevitably refer to the ladies of the pole, the dancers of the mast, the groovers of the stick. On the original cover we see Ms Turner sitting in a chair but, and here's the amazing bit, she is not dancing! In the remix we see a lady of the pole, dancing for money. And doing pretty much what you would expect her to do for the price. Ching!
The end of the summer is nearly upon us, but what better time to brighten the lengthening days with a holiday song by Madonna. And what holiday song is it? Why none other than Holiday! The original cover shows a couple heading off on their vacation by train, the Golden Arrow steam train no less. The remix shows a babe who is also off on her vacation as she is carrying her suitcase. But it looks like whoever it was that is going to take her away is yet to arrive, because she is waiting by the side of the road. Why she should do this naked is a question that is worth thinking about. Ponder!
Goth time, here at AllBum.Art. And a goth classic from the Sisters Of Mercy, in the form of their dark, melancholy single Lucretia My Reflection. But lo!, where is this Lucretia you mention, and what is special about her reflection? On the original cover, none of these questions are answered as we just see a picture of the band members in moody blue. On the remix we see a babe who could well be called Lucretia. Either way, she looks very goth, and we can see her reflection. Solved!
We seem to be having a bit of a run on disco hits this week. The Runner by The Three Degrees ably trots into this category. On the original cover we see the band members wearing the 1970s equivalent of a jump suit, perfect for running. Unless the weather is really hot, in which case what is better for running is a piece of sheer, see-through material which is what the runner in the remix of the single cover has chosen to wear. Jog!
Continuing the disco theme, we find the cover and the remix for this somewhat obscure 1970s track from Ashford & Simpson. The original cover of It Seems To Hang On shows what we can only presume to be the band members and unless one of them is in some way hanging from the ceiling, there is not much hanging going on. In the remix we see a babe sitting on a precarious looking hammock swing and it seems to be hanging on OK. Bump!
It is always worth asking the question of any song, what is it that you can do for me? In this case, Shalamar tell us that I Can Make You Feel Good. And whilst their upbeat 1980s disco sound will certainly make anyone feel groovy, it is not altogether clear what it is they could do that would make you feel that good. On the remix, we see two girls and one is having a good try at making the other feel good. In the process, they are making many hot blooded males feel something too... upload!
This entry comes to us via the auspices of Ken Crescendo of Barnsley, England. Ken tells us that in England, the word 'pants' has a different meaning to in the USA, being the undergarment rather that the overgarment. We get what you're saying Ken, and thanks for this remix of Fancy Pants by Kenny. On the original is, nothing, just the title and the artist. On the remix we see a babe in a kitchen wearing what the English would no doubt refer to as fancy pants. Fancy that!
