When Michael Bolton put together the original cover artwork for his album Vintage, it seems that his one guiding principle was to ensure that his face was front and center, no doubt reflecting his aging years and vintage status. Or perhaps the album was meant to be called Visage, not Vintage. Anyhow, on the remix we find a babe in vintage lingerie standing in front of a vintage automotive traction vehicle. Definitely vintage and not visage. Retro!
We can see what 10cc were trying to do with the original album cover artwork for Sheet Music, as they have pulled in the border surrounding the picture of the band members into the middle of the cover to make it look as if it is a sheet. Nice try. On the remix we just find a babe resting underneath a sheet, ready, or so it would seem, to make sweet music, though we can't see what instrument she plays. Flute!
Apparently, Love Comes Quickly when you wear a hat with the word 'Boy' on it, at least that is what the original single cover artwork by the Pet Shop Boys tells us. On the remix, not a great deal has changed, except that instead of there being a boy wearing a hat with the word boy on it, it's now a babe who has her baseball cap on. It seems her t-shirt may also have the word boy on it, but it's difficult to read as she has it pulled up to reveal her stomach. Tummy!
It seems, if the original single cover artwork for Lethal Industry by DJ Tiesto is to be believed, that what proves deadly in an industrial environment is some hand-scrawled words on a page full of red and yellow blobs. On the remix we find an alternative view, and we can immediately see the danger. Some babe, who has forgotten her hard hat and other protective gear, is trying to turn a valve that will release deadly high pressure steam at her, and boil her on the spot. Danger!
Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey) is a song by De La Soul (talk about stating the obvious). The original single cover artwork suggests that the ring in question is one on the telephone. The remix suggests that the ring in question is possibly a wedding (or engagement) ring, as we find a bride gazing longingly into the distance with a large diamond ring sitting right in front of her. Maybe she has forgotten her contact lenses and can't see it. Hypermetropic!
It's October, so what more would you want to do with your days than become and October Swimmer, at least that is what JJ72 tell us. Sadly whilst they tell us that, they don't show us, as on the original single cover artwork we find just a blur of sludge. On the remix we find a babe who is swimming in October, and we know this because of the lovely sunset. Descending!
Another X-rated remix, this time for Alisha's Attic and their song Push It All Aside. On the original single front cover artwork we can see the two band members (called Alisha and Attic?) sitting with their backs against a cupboard on a wooden floor, but what is being pushed aside? On the remix some babe has decided to push it all aside and show us her own attic. Thinking about it, it's not at all clear that she is pushing it aside all by herself, she could have handy assistance. Aside from that, it's definitely all pushed. Pink!
Mariah Carey is singing about My All, or her all, to put it in the correct grammatical arrangement. What her all is, though, is not clear as the original single front cover artwork only tells us that she is capable of standing close to a guy with long hair. The remi-xxx (or x-rated remix) shows a babe who seems to be indicating, through the judicious pulling aside of her panties, just what her all is. There not much left that her all could be, given that aside from her panties, she is only wearing high heel shoes. Total!
Album Covers, Albums Of The 1990s, Single Covers, Singles Of The 1990s, High Heels, Mature, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkWalking Wounded was both an album and a single for Everything But The Girl. Unfortunately, the original cover artwork for both failed to address the question of who was walking, and in what way they had been wounded. On the remix we find a mature babe who is walking along outdoors. She is only wearing a pair of very high heels, though she has a pink dress slung over her shoulder. Is she wounded? She looks as if she may have been planning something which failed to materialize which has left her feeling a little disappointed, and not just a little wounded with it. Sword!
The original cover artwork for Seduced And Abandoned by Hue And Cry offers little to no guidance on who has been seduced, and why they have been abandoned. Thankfully AllBum.Art is here to help. On the remix we find a babe who seems to have been seduced into removing some of her clothes whilst standing in a truck stop. She has then been left all alone, and abandoned, without, it would seem, anyone to help her get dressed again. Lost!
