We often say, here at AllBum.Art that some songs write their own remixes. Strip by Pink Grease is just such a song as with a title of strip, the subject matter for the remixed cover artwork is beyond obvious. On the original cover we see the band members riding a bus, for no reason that is immediately apparent. On the remix we see three babes stripping, for reasons that are as clear as day. Undress!
What do you think of for a song whose title is Get On The Bus, especially when that song is by sassy, sexy quartet Destiny's Child (featuring Timbaland, but we can effectively ignore that bit)? Is it the members of the band posing in front of a white sun and grey sky? Or is it a hot babe, sitting on a bus? For us, it's definitely the latter and that's what appears on the remix. Good how that works isn't it? Visage!
Such a simple remix this one. The original cover of The Boxer by Simon And Garfunkel shows the two singers, the title of the song, and the singers' names, and that's it. No sign of a boxer, which is odd, given that the title of the song is The Boxer. This is very easily remedied, and in the remix we have just added a picture of a boxer. A foxy boxer as girls who wear boxing gloves, high heel boots, and not much else are normally called. Pow!
No, we had never heard of Lemonescent either, but when we found a picture of a mama helping out her daughter with what looks like an internet type activity, both of them hardly what you would call clothed, then we knew we had to find a suitable cover artwork for a remix. The song Help Me Mama is therefore the perfect material for such a remix. The original cover shows the members of the band, and when you think about it, the only way Mama might be helping is to take the picture. Incestescent!
A short series of remixes based around pictures of girls in garages, or car-ports as they are oft monikered. On the original cover of Garage Girls by Lonyo, we find Mr Lonyo standing around in what might be a garage, or might not be. There isn't enough of the background to the picture to know for certain. What is certain, is that the girls he mentions are not there. On the remix, we find two girls, in a garage. Could it be any clearer than that? Gas Station!
What can we glean, from the cover of Up The Ladder To The Roof by The Supremes, other, perhaps, than the slightly quirky way they have stretched out the words in the title of the song to form a kind of set of steps, or stairs if you will, up which it might be possible to climb. On the remix we see a babe who is up a ladder to the roof, but she has forgotten even basic safety precautions such as wearing clothes. Alert!
When two megastars such as Elton John and Eric Clapton come together to make a song, expectations for the cover of the single are rightly high. But whilst the original cover features Mr Clapton and Mr Dwight (for that is his real name), there is no evidence of any train. On the remix we see a babe sitting on a chair in the middle of some railroad tracks. If any runaway trains do come her way, she will be there to stop them. She would stop most men in their tracks, that's for sure. Ferrous!
What do you know, it's our old friend Peter Andre back for a second remix. On the original cover of his song Behind Closed Doors, we see Mr Andre looking doleful. But there are no doors. Shame on him. On the remix we see a babe in a building where there ought to be lots of doors, but they all seem to have been lost to history. Instead she is standing in a doorway wearing no clothes. Someone please get her a door to stand behind so that we can close it and keep her warm. Bolt!
We are not sure what the Backstreet Boys are singing about when they sing All I Have To Give. Why are we so uncertain? Well the cover of their single provides no information about their offering at all. Instead we see the boys standing around with their floppy haircuts on a sunny veranda. The remix shows a babe who has given almost everything and all she has left to give is her panties. Which is odd, as she is still wearing her cardigan. Question!
