elvis presley blue suede 1elvis presley blue suede 2elvis presley blue suede remix
Not the first remix of the cover of a single for Elvis Presley. This time it's the rockabilly classic Blue Suede Shoes which is just begging for modernization. Although a picture of Elvis is what set the world alight in the late 1950s, these days it's hot chicks that do it (and probably what did it for Elvis too). So two remixes. One just with a very sexy pair of blue suede high heel stiletto shoes. And the second with a hot babe wearing a very sexy pair of blue suede high heel stiletto shoes! Take your pick (as no doubt Elvis did).

connie francis lipstick remixconnie francis lipstick 1For some reason it is those classic old songs that are best suited to a remix of the covers. This is a 1959 song from Connie Francis but is still known today as Lipstick On Your Collar is as common today as it was then. Of course the outlook changes from a simple cover with some lipstick on it, to a hot naked chick with lipstick on. As they say on the old Chicken Box, 'keep the lipstick off your dipstick'. Good advice. Then again, maybe not.

Rip It Up - Bill Hailey

bill haley rip it up remixbill haley rip it up 1Steppin' back in time, jive bunnies, to the rolling, rocking 1950s and this single from Bill Haley and his Comets. The original cover of Rip It Up shows the head of Big Bad Bill, but no evidence of any kind of rippin' going on. The remix remedies this with a hot chic whose clothes have been ripped up. Who exactly has done the rippin' is unknown, but it looks like she did it herself. Why? Who cares!

Come Fly With Me - Frank Sinatra

frank sinatra come fly with me remixfrank sinatra come fly with me 1Come Fly With Me by Frank Sinatra is one of those old-time classics that you don't mess with. Unless you're AllBum.Art that is! Mr Sinatra has been replaced by a girl posing as an aeroplane standing on what looks like a disused runway (you can tell because there are planes in the background - top left). You might also call this 'extreme down-blouse' because, well, look closely enough and you will see.

Singin' In The Rain - Gene Kelly 
Sunday, 13 January, 2013, 05:43 - Singles Released Before 1960

singin in the rain 1Do de do doo, doo de do de do doody... Few people on the planet Earth are unfamiliar with this classic song, especially the version sung by Gene Kelly. Singin' In The Rain is the song that has come to represent the state of being happy-go-lucky whilst walking around outside and being drenched by pouring precipitation. The song was written in 1929 but became famous in 1952 when it was the title track to the film of the same name. There wasn't really a cover for the single as such, but there has been a cover produced for the DVD of the film that has been adapted to act as a cover for the song. In it we see three characters from the film, in raincoats and with umbrellas who are happily splashing their way through the rain.

singin in the rain 2The original cover is now over 60 years old (or at least the film is) and so it is rife for modernization. The modernized cover has done away with the three characters from the film, who have been replaced by a single lady (single in this sense meaning that there is just one of her, as it is likely that a lady with her assets and gregariousness must have a boyfriend). The lady is also wearing a raincoat and has an umbrella but unlike Mr Kelly and his ilk, she is also wearing a pair of kinky high heeled yellow boots, a yellow PVC thong, and, it would appear, little else. What seems clear is that she is happy in this outfit and that should it begin to rain, she would remain upbeat though no doubt would get a little cold if the temperature dropped too low.

Three At A Table For Two - Doris Day

doris day 3 at a table for 2 remixdoris day 3 at a table for 2 1This must be one of the oldest songs we've remixed here at AllBum.Art. Three At A Table For Two was sung by forces darling Doris Day in 1940. The original cover sees Ms Day smiling sweetly, but where is the table, and who is the interloper making the company a crowd? The remix, quite vividly, shows the situation. Two people were sat at a table having a nice cup of coffee together when along comes some gregarious girl and sits down between them getting in their way. Very distracting we would imagine.

Baby It's Cold Outside - Various Artists 
Saturday, 22 December, 2012, 12:03 - Singles Released Before 1960, Singles Of The 1960s, Singles Of The 2000s, Christmas Crackers
Posted by Administrator
baby its cold outside 1A seasonal classic, written as long ago as 1944, Baby It's Cold Outside has been performed and recorded by a long string of artists most notably:
  • Margaret Whiting and Johnny Mercer (1949)
  • Dean Martin (1959)
  • Ray Charles and Betty Carter (1961)
  • Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey (2004)
Very few pieces of original album art exist (and some versions were only released on compilation albums) and so this 'knitted sweater' design has been used as the basis for a re-work of this chilly tune.

baby its cold outside 2The revised version stays with the knitted sweater idea but instead of a cosy 'warm inside' version, this one is most definitely 'cold outside'. The lady in the picture appears to be wearing nothing but a furry hat but is thankfully protected from the harsh chill of the cold by a furry jacket that she appears to be sitting on. How she got into this predicament, heavens only knows but presumably if she felt the cold she wouldn't have got like this in the first place. She can always put the furry jacket back on again, though without any trousers or other garments, it is unlikely to provide sufficient warmth. Perhaps her charming looks have an exothermic reaction with the surrounding snow. Or maybe not.

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus - Jimmy Boyd

i saw mommy kissing santa claus 1Jimmy Boyd sang I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus in 1952, when he was but 13 years old. At the time, the cover for many singles were generally very dull, however Mr Boyd appears to have done better than most with this cover which shows a Mommy (obvious by her semi-domestic apparel) kissing Santa Claus (obvious by his large stomach, red coat and white beard). And what's more there is a young boy, sat in the corner, clearly watching the scene unfold. This one wins an AllBum.Art thumbs up for managing to actually represent the song.

i saw mommy kissing santa claus 2Just because the original cover is alright, doesn't mean it can't be improved upon. In this modernized cover, the Mommy concerned is a little less domesticated and the Santa Claus somewhat less convincing. But where the picture loses out in authenticity, it gains in audacity as it seems that Mommy has dressed up specially for the occasion in red hot-pants and silver stripper heels. It's almost as if she knew Santa was on his way and had prepared herself ready for him coming. There is one alternative explanation, that the Mommy concerned is actually one of the presents that Santa is delivering as there must be many a Daddy who would like her in their Christmas stockings.

White Christmas - Bing Crosby 
Wednesday, 5 December, 2012, 12:35 - Singles Released Before 1960, Christmas Crackers

white christmas bing crosby 1Apparently, White Christmas as sung by Mr Bing Crosby is the best selling single of all time. There could be many reasons for this, for example:
  • It is played every Christmas, and is very popular, and will therefore have been purchased many times over.
  • It is the quintessential Christmas song and one which everyone wants in their collection, and will therefore have been purchased many times over.
  • It was made in 1941 and is so old that nearly 5 generations have had a chance to buy it, and it will therefore have been purchased many times over.
One thing that is clear though, is that unless you happen to like smiling crooners of the 1940s wearing holly for a bow tie, the cover of the single did not itself lead to many of those sales.

white christmas bing crosby 2The younger generation are not normally drawn to pictures of old singers in sweaters, bobble-hats and with holly around their neck and it therefore seems possible that Mr Crosby's classic may fall from favor which would, of course be a crime. The cover of the single has therefore been revised by AllBum.Art to bring it up to date with modern seasonal standards. Instead of the smiling face of Mr Crosby, we see the smiling face of a young lady in a white bra, stood in front of a white Christmas tree. Of course, even this lady will eventually grow old but for now this represents a much more modern cover for the melodic winter classic.

The Christmas Song - Nat King Cole 
Tuesday, 4 December, 2012, 12:27 - Singles Released Before 1960, Christmas Crackers

nat king cole the xmas song 1As the Holiday season is fast approaching, it seems right to focus on seasonal songs, especially those that have stood the test of time. The Christmas Song, first recorded by Mr Nat King Cole in 1946 is one of those Christmas classics. Everyone knows the lyrics which revolve around Mr King Cole roasting chestnuts on an open fire. It is note clear whose chestnuts he is roasting (they could be his own or that of a guest who has called in to visit and brought them along), but the idea of an open fire and the chocolatey smooth voice of Mr Cole at Christmas time is enough to warm anyone's chestnuts.

nat king cole the xmas song 2Through extensive research, it appears that it was in fact a rather sexy model whose chestnuts Mr King was attempting to roast. This alternative cover for the single shows the real situation. It is also possible that the chestnuts are metaphorical and are a saucy reference to the nuts on this lady's chest which are perilously close to the open fire such that they will no doubt be getting roasting hot. Then again, one suspects that in the presence of this lady, most things will get roasting hot. On the other hand, without the open fire, one wonders whether she would be racing to display her chestnuts as amply as she is doing here.
