Another remix for the Average White Band, this time for their single Queen Of My Soul. On the original single cover artwork, we can see the band members looking at something, but what it is that they are smiling at. On the remix we see the object of their attention, it is, of course, the queen of their souls who has a fancy tiara and necklace but other than those and her gloves, has forgotten her other regal regalia. Ballgown!
It may well be the case that Glen Goldsmith is (or was) in a dreamy mood when he posed for the picture on the original single cover artwork of Dreaming, but it's not that apparent from his gaze. On the remix we find a babe lounging on a chair, eyes closed, feet in the air, and as far as we can tell she is dreamy, or dreaming, or even day-dreaming. In the end it probably doesn't matter as she could be the subject of many dreams, dry or wet. Sleepy!
When Whitney Houston sings that she should Run To You, you might expect more from the original single cover artwork than a picture of Ms Houston, no matter how melancholy she is looking. What you might expect is a picture of a babe running towards you. So it's handy that on the remix, this is what you have. Why the babe is wearing little more than a pair of sneakers is a question that, to be realistic, no one is really asking. Jog!
There's nothing particularly wrong about the original album cover artwork for Boys In The Trees by Carly Simon, other than the fact that there are no boys and no trees. Instead we find Ms Simon putting on (or maybe taking off) her stockings. On the remix we have done nothing more than modernize this vista by replacing Ms Simon with a different babe who is also in the process of sorting out her stockings. Retro!
The thing about the original single cover artwork for Serious by Pop is that the band (all four of them) don't look very serious. Instead they seem to be enjoying standing around on a sunny beach in their swimsuits. On the remix are four babes who look very serious even though they too appear to be on a beach. Which is a shame, as they would probably have plenty of fun on a beach dressed, as they are, in nothing. Somber.
Feeling unwell in the love department? At a loss how to cure a broken heart? You need the services of Dr Love (or at least that is what Tina Charles should have sung). The question is whether Ms Charles appears in one of these predicaments on the cover of her single. Perhaps she does as she is looking a little forlorn. On the remix we find Dr Love in action, using his advanced medical skills to try and cure a babe of her illness. That, or he's just an old lech. Cure!
Some songs beg a good remix purely for asking questions that are then not fully answered by the cover of the single, and this is one of those. The cover for Can You Handle It by Sharon Redd shows Ms Redd, but fails to address the question of what it is that we have to determine can, or can not, be handled. The remix shows a brunette asking (you can tell she is puzzled through the look in her eyes), a blonde, whether she can handle it. It seems the blonde herself has a lot to handle but the brunette has even more. Question!
We have taken a little poetic license in producing the remix of Love Is A Stranger by the Eurythmics. In replacing the two weird looking singers of the band, we have used an image that would more accurately fit if the title was 'love is stranger', as we find a babe whose boobs appear constricted, wearing shoes with such a high heel that she couldn't possibly walk any distance in them, having her leg examined by a guy in a black mask. Stranger!
Yeah, baby, Get Down on that funk-jive master-beat. At least that's how radio DJs of the 1970s introduced Gene Chandler's single. The original cover has the heel of a high heel shoe and what might be a pair of glasses, or a bra (it's difficult to tell) silhouetted against a deep red and pink background. All we, at AllBum.Art have done is added in a bunny girl getting down, or at least bending down to remove her panties. How's that for 1970s funk-jive? Down-pop!
When The Pretenders sang I'll Stand By You, did they stop to think about what to put on the cover of their single? It seems not, as the picture they chose is of the lead singer standing looking glum holding her guitar. Who is she standing by? The remix solves this problem as a guy stands by his babe. He needs to because she does not seem to be wearing any clothes and will need to fend off over-interested onlookers. On Guard!
