Albums Of The 1980s, Singles Of The 1980s, Halloween Hits, Album Covers, Single Covers, Not Safe For Work, Special RemixesAnother in this week's series of Halloween remixes by none other than David Bowie. His album Scary Monsters and his single Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) makes ideal material for a remix, not least because the original cover isn't particularly scary or creepy at all. On the remix, though, we find a babe being chased by all manner of scary creeps and super monsters and as they have been coming for her, it seems she has found that the best way to fend them off is to pull her panties down. Now in most cases, people use garlic and crosses to fend of monsters but if this works, who are we to intervene. Experiment!
Singles Of The 1990s, Halloween Hits, Remi-XXX-es, Single Covers, Not Safe For Work, Special RemixesOur remix of The Ballad Of Peter Pumpkinhead not only falls into the category of Halloween remixes but also into our XXX-rated remixes. On the original cover we find what is presumably Peter Pumpkinhead (his head does not look particularly pumpkin shaped) being burnt at a stake, no doubt a warlock. On the remix we find a naked babe carving an effigy of Peter Pumpkinhead but given the way in which she is doing it, and the green lighting, we wonder if she is a witch and may also be burned at a stake at some later day. Rescue!
Korn with their single Freak On A Leash is another ideal candidate for a Halloween remix, especially as the original cover which shows no signs of any freaks or any leashes, nor the band, has any real connection with the song. On the remix we find a babe who has been tied down by a large chain (technically not a leash but it will do) and looks pretty freaky to us. It's probably the blue hair that does it, right? Pumpkin!
Woooo, be Scared, it's Slacker and their crazy single cover. Crazy their cover may be, but scary it is not. Unless you happen to be frightened by letters printed on a Dymo. That is why we, at AllBum.Art are here. An on the remix we find a babe who looks very scared. Part of the reason she may be so frightened is that she appears to have gone green. Maybe she has eaten too much spinach, but then again, Popeye never went that shade of Brunswick. Castleton!
When Chris Rea sings about the Road To Hell you would expect him to give some kind of direction so that it's clear where to avoid (or where to go) if you wanted to find Hades. On the original single cover artwork, though, all we can see is an odd cube floating in space. Thankfully on the remix we find a babe who is showing us exactly what the road to hell is. It turns out it's the A4139 which goes to Dinbych-y-pysgod (a devilish place if ever there was one) and also to Hell. Looks as if the babe concerned is already full of devilment. Lucifer!
As Halloween is just a week away, we thought we would bring you a whole week of Halloween remixes. Kicking off the week is Walking Dead by Puressence. The original cover for their single shows the back of a stone warthog (isn't that the one from Hogwarts?). But it's not walking and although it's made of stone, it is meant to represent a live warthog, not a dead one. On the remix we find a babe who has awoken from the dead and is walking out of the coffin where she normally resides. Spooky!
Ask yourself... What would the cover of a single called The Bartender And The Thief look like? According to the Stereophonics, it looks like a blurred speeding red lorry. According to us, it looks like a thief in overalls is stealing the clothes from a busty barmaid in yellow high heels. Now, as yourself, which of these better reflects the title of the song? Go on, ask yourself. Do you know the answer? Winner!
Let's Change Clothes, or at least that is what Jay-Z would have us do. To help us with this, he has provided us with a threatening stance which is less encouragement and more coercion. That may explain why the babe on the remix is having so much trouble with his instructions. She has clearly acted too quickly and attempted to change her trousers without taking off her high heels. Now she is stumped as she does not know how to complete the instructions. Forced!
You'll Never Know anything about the song if the only information from Hi-Gloss that you had to go on was the cover of their single. Well, perhaps you would know that there was a babe painted in hi-gloss paint. The remix, to be fair, doesn't really help. All that we have done is taken a step backwards to survey the scene from a wider perspective. What is revealed is no more informative, sadly. Perspective!
What does Another Day In Paradise look like? If we are to believe the cover of Phil Collins' single, it looks like a monochrome, sullen experience. No! That's not what another day in paradise looks like. It looks like a sunny beach with a blue sky and golden sand. And to make it paradise a hot naked babe is waiting on a bench for you. Now that's paradise. Eden!
