A wop bop a loo bop, a wop bam boo. That has nothing to do with Feel by Robbie Williams but then again nor does the original single cover artwork which shows what we can only presume to be Mr Williams surrounded by lighted hoops and standing on a road, or something like that. On the remix a more mature babe is standing in a shop, with her goods on display and the shopkeeper is having a feel of one of her juicy pair. There is even a free phone and a copy of People magazine. Yep, they have nothing to do with it either. Coat!
So Emerson, Lake And Palmer thought that a good idea for the original single front cover artwork of their song Lucky Man, would be to show pictures of themselves. Granted, they look reasonably happy (for a 70s rock band), but are they lucky? On the remix is a dude who is very lucky indeed, as his job seems to be to inspect the naked bodies of a heap load of babes. He seems very dedicated to his job, and will almost certainly be taking that inspection as slowly as he possibly can. Attention!
Agnelli And Nelson Featuring Aureus were duped into accepting one of those cheap, generic, record company single covers that says nothing about the song or the artist. The original cover for Holding On To Nothing shows an eye. An eye? Yes. And with it someone running away from something (is that a dude or a babe?) On the remix are two babes who are literally holding on to nothing, as they cup their diminutive boobs, making them look even smaller than they were in the first place. Forest!
Let's join Horst Jankowski as he takes A Walk In The Black Forest. And what do we see? Is it some oof that infamous Black Forest Gateau? No, it's just Mr Jankowski in black and white, but no forest or any cake. In the remixed forest setting, we find a babe who has gone for a walk and in true forest nymph fashion, she is only wearing the absolute essentials for such a walk. A charm necklace and a lucky hair braid. Let's hope it's not too crispy underfoot. Crunch!
There are many remixes here at AllBum.Art of cover artwork by U2. Today it is the turn of With Or Without You. Despite expecting to see two pictures on the front cover, one with, and one without you, there is just a shot of one of the band members squatting down on a piece of arid land. On the remix are two pictures. One of a babe with, and one without, her lingerie which, for all we know, could have been made by a company called 'you'. Which do you prefer, the with or the without. U!
When The Bouncer says "your name's not down, you're not comin' in", you know your evening is reaching an end. When it's written on the original artwork for the single Kicks Like A Mule, chances are you just need to change the record. Or as a minimum, change the cover of the record. The original artwork shows very little, and could have been put together by anyone, even a bouncer. On the remix we have simply focused on the word bouncer, and replaced the drawing with a big bouncy babe, laying topless on a beach. Enter!
According to The Chemical Brothers It Began In Afrika, by which they presumably mean mis-spelling of the names of continents. On the original single front cover artwork you can see a picture that seems more Europeen than Afrikan, though maybe it has hints of Amerika and Aysia in there too. On the remix we go back to the root of the problem and you can see a babe who may well have begun in Africa, where standing naked by a tree with a head-dress on is, of course, de rigeur. Maybe she is called Sarahara. Desert!
Whoa, ooo, aah, Camouflage, things are never quite the way they seem. Though the single artwork is rather hazy on detail, showing the singer Stan Ridgway playing his harmonica. The camouflage on the original cover seems to be the result of someone painting blobs of green and purple over the picture of Mr Ridgway. On the remix is a babe wearing a camouflaged outfit, but one that has gotten torn in combat. With all that ripped material, any stealth that her outfit would have afforded has largely been lost. And she is now largely exposed. Netting!
Hey, hey, it's time for those groovesters Roxy Music. Let's flip on over to the original single front cover artwork for their single Angel Eyes. Wowsah! It shows two babes wearing earrings and would you crease it, one of them has their eye-picking eyes closed. Flute those mid-tone eyelashes. On the remix is an angel whose eyes you can clearly see, and you can also pool a gap at her outfit which is eye-catchingly transparently busting out of the hat fringe leaflet. Boom that, you ample cat bounder!
When Buggles were producing their single Clean, Clean, they must have forgotten that the cover artwork needed to somehow reflect the nature of the song. So why, then, did they opt for some bizarre shooting targets which consist of soldiers above the waste and babes below? It's very confusing and not that clean. On the remix is a babe in a bathroom. It's not clear whether she is clean herself, or in the process of cleaning. Either way, one thing that is for certain, is that she is more than likely dirty. Failure!
