How does that old kiddies rhyme go, "I'm the king of the castle, and you're the dirty rascal"? And to some extent the original and remixed versions of the cover art for Keeper Of The Castle by the Four Tops follow a similar logic. On the original we see the band members standing in front of an urban castle. On the remix we see a babe protecting a more traditional medieval castle, though she is a little short on armor. The queen of the castle, and the dirty rascals? Schloss!
This Ole House has no doubt seen better days as it appears to be crumblin' around the edges, though with the position of Shakin' Stevens within the abode, the state of the decor is not apparent. In the remix we take a wider angle lens to the property and it is now clear that the state of the interior decor is, indeed, fallin' apart. What also becomes apparent is that there appears to be a naked babe hangin' around. Maybe she's a Shakin' Stevens fan and is waitin' for him to return home after work. Unlikely!
A Ride On A Meteorite is what Antares are offering us in this terrible 1990s electropop nonsense. Their cover, however, offers something vaguely more appealing. The remix goes one step further as we find a babe who is definitely riding on a meteorite. Interestingly, although the meteorite in question has got a purple sky, it clearly has a breathable atmosphere as the babe in question is not wearing a space suit. In fact, she's not wearing anything at all. Asphyxia!
Another remix for the eponymous Bruno Mars whose singles and albums seem to make excellent fodder for remixing. The idea of being Locked Out Of Heaven conjures up pictures of being stuck with no way to access the beauty of what lies behind. In that respect the original cover is just about OK, but the remix scores in so many additional ways. We find on the remix a babe who is locked behind bars, and we are on the other side of those bars. Locked out of heaven indeed. Locksmith!
Wiggle it, just a little bit. That's what you should be saying to someone who you are requesting to Shake Ya Tailfeather. But the big headed rappers collective of Nelly, P. Diddy and Murphy Lee only wish to show us their big heads on the cover of their single. On the remix we see a single babe who is apt to shake her tailfeather and who would have made a far better adornment for the cover of the single. Wiggle!
Odd 1 Out, yeah, right, like that's not an original title for an album. Well anyway, rant over, it seems that Guvna B did reasonably well with his album cover putting himself as the odd one out in-between two grey zeros. The remix adds a little color to this monochromatic scene but retains the odd one out. Can you spot which girl is the odd one out? Yes, it's the one at the end. All the others are called Jenny, but she is called Terry. Bet you didn't spot that did you? Jinx!
Pip pap pop, or at least that's the kind of pippy pappy poppy music that seems to represent the single Coffee by Supersister. We actually like the original cover of the single, mainly because the babes in the band seem quite hot. But where's their coffee? The remix has some equally hot babes, being served equally hot coffee. But for reasons unknown and unfathomable, these hot coffee-swilling babes prefer to imbibe their caffeine in the nude. Beans!
Not the first remix of single by the Kings Of Leon here at AllBum.Art, but, in fact, the second. Today it's the turn of their song Fans, and on the original cover we can see what looks like seats in a theater, where no doubt their fans will assemble to watch the show. On the remix we see two fans. One looks like a watermelon being luscious red with black spots. The other is sitting on a park bench using the other fan to cover up her fanny. So maybe that's three fans, not two after all. Tally!
How quintessentially 1980s is the cover of Drop The Pilot by Joan Armatrading. In addition to Ms Armatrading wearing a red jump-suit, the hastily squiggled prime color graffiti adds that totally period effect. But for today, much needs changing and on the remix it has. Gone is that 80s kitsch, replaced by a pilot. But a pilot who you may not want to drop as she is, how shall we put this delicately, robust, well-constructed, voluminous... you get the idea. Drop her and it's more than the aircraft that will suffer damage. Crash!
October. An odd time of year to be remixing sizzling summer hits. But then again, what could be better when the days are starting to shorten and the nights getting colder than to be thinking of hot babes on warm beaches? And hot babes on Brazilian beaches is what Kaliedoscópio bring in their sizzling hit Você Me Apareceu. The original shows a hot beach. The remix shows a similarly hot beach with the addition of a hot babe in a cooling bikini. As for the song, we have no idea what it means either but does that really matter? Pra caramba!
