So, where do we start with the original cover of Oblivious by Aztec Camera? For starters, the girl may be oblivious to something, but what it is that she is oblivious to? And is she Aztec? Well she may be but then again, she could just be wearing a vaguely south American scarf. Thank goodness, then, for the remix in which we find a babe who is oblivious to the fact that her naked body is being espied by a dude peering at her from behind her bedroom door. Unbeknownst!
Two in a row (that's the whole weekend) for UB40. On the original cover for Rat In Mi Kitchen, we find a red and yellow rat with a black and white tail, sniffing around the name of the band. But where is the kitchen? On the remix we find a babe who is trying to catch a rat that has been let loose in her kitchen, who, it seems, has managed to chew off all of her clothes (except her heels oddly). Let's hope she catches it soon before it chews anything else. Pinch!
Another remix for those reggae rebels UB40. The original cover artwork for Red Red Wine shows the band posing for the camera (that old thing again). But there is no wine anywhere. On the remix we find three babes, each with a glass of red wine in their hand. It seems they may have had a little too much wine already as at least two of them have neglected to remember to dress properly for the camera. Vino!
You don't get much for 10c, but if you ask The Flirts, this is the going rate for a dance with the, or at least it is if the title of their album 1c A Dance is to be believed. On the remix we find a much more realistic situation based on inflation and today's paid dancing sector, as a babe is available to dance for you but clearly at a much higher rate running into several dollars, if not tens of dollars. Maybe $10 a dance is more realistic? Expensive!
Another remix for Scottish songsters Ultravox. This time it is for their 1986 single, All Fall Down. The original cover fails on so many fronts, it's not even worth discussing. The remix is worth discussing, as we find a group of babes who have all fallen down. It is worth discussing because it is not clear why they have fallen down. Have they been poisoned, or are they exhausted from some unseen physical activity? It all adds to the mystery. Trip!
Another remix for rock legends Queen. On the original cover artwork for The Show Must Go On, we find little other than the name of the song, the name of the band, and a regal logo. On the remix we find out more about the show which appears to be some kind of naked cabaret, performed by a group of girls whose busts are questionable in their authenticity. But we agree with the band, that the show should definitely go on. Continue!
Roy Orbison, or the Big O as he was often known, is perhaps most famous for his single Oh, Pretty Woman. So it is therefore a shame that on the cover of his single Heartbreak Radio, there is no pretty woman. Thankfully on the remix this problem has been fixed and there is not a pretty woman who must be something to do with the radio station Mr Orbison is singing about as she is wearing a pair of headphones and standing on top of some loudspeakers. And she's a real heartbreaker too. Cue!
Continuing the outer space theme from yesterday a bit, here's a remix of Doctorin' The Tardis by The Timelords. The original cover has a car that claims to be a Ford Timelord, and also claims to have made a record. On the remix we find the tardis (a British police box for the uninitiated) with a guy and a busy babe standing in front of it. Is the doctor in the tardis? Isn't he not always never on the outer inside? Mystery!
Nothing better for a good remix than a space-related song, and hence Venus And Mars by Jo Breezer provides an ideal opportunity to mix our love of remixes and babes, with all things outer-spatial. On the original cover, we find Ms Breezer wandering through a field, on a planet that looks very suspiciously like Earth. On the remix we find two babes with very different skin tones. The reason for this is simple, one is from Venus and one is from Mars. Which is which we leave for you to decide. For us, it's a trip to Venus any day. Launch!
