Original Cover Artwork of Donna Summer Bad Girls Donna Summer's 1979 disco classic 'Bad Girls' was supposedly inspired after one of Donna's assistants was stopped by a police officer who thought she was a prostitute. How such a mistake could have been made is unknown, however the cover of the single shows Donna leaning against a lamp-post in typical 1970s disco garb. Presumably the police officer in question had never been to a discotheque of the time and was unfamiliar with the idea that just because a woman is wearing stockings, high heels and a skirt that is split up to the thigh does not imply that she is a prostitute but just a regular 'girl about town'.

Cover Artwork Remix of Donna Summer Bad Girls Of course the title of Ms Summer's song is 'Bad Girls'. Note the emphasis on the plural. Yet, on the cover there is only the one girl - Ms Summer herself - in the picture. As previously stated, the fact that the clothes she is wearing are typical of the time does not really do the title justice. In this updated version, the police officer has gone and in his place are two very bad girls, in fact they are so naughty that they are standing by Ms Summer's lamp-post but, it would seem, naked other than some high heels and a hat. It is now pretty certain that if the police officer were to see them, his supposition that they were prostitutes would be much more accurate and in any case, being naked in a public place would surely call for their arrest regardless.

Original Cover Artwork of Sheila B Devotion Spacer OrFrench band, Sheila & B. Devotion (sometimes mistakenly called 'Sheila B Devotion') hit the charts in 1979 with the disco classic 'Spacer'. The song has since been sampled extensively by, for example, Alcazar in their hit 'Crying at the Discotheque'. The original cover for the single is shown on the right. It features a pretty blonde in a very 1970s disco outfit of red and white trainers, 'bobby socks' and a matching red and white sleeveless baseball t-shirt. She is kneeling or squatting down on a beach, drawing in the sand with a stick.

Cover Artwork Remix of Sheila B Devotion Spacer The 1979 version of the cover was probably quite erotic and sexy for its time, however in the 2010s, it seems a little bland and so it has been update in line with modern maxims. On the right is an updated, and much sexier, version. This time the girl on the beach is naked (but nothing is on show that you wouldn't see in a tabloid newspaper) and is in a similar pose, although she seems to have lost the stick with which to draw in the sand. She looks just as happy as her 1979 counterpart despite her being in the nude. Perhaps she is thinking, "Now, where did I leave my bobby socks...?"
