What is Naive about the cover of The Kooks song? It seems that the situation is that some guy is sitting next to some babe who seems to have reasonable legs. Beyond that we can't tell any more about the story. On the remix we find that the guy has had a better chance to examine the goods and though her legs may have looked quite OK, the rest of her may not be so appealing. So his naivety lies in the fact that he's now left in a compromising position that would have been so less difficult if he'd investigated the situation better before. Hand!
What a cute play on words. When First Choice sing Let No Man Put Asunder, they could equally be singing Let No Man Put Us Under. See what they did there? Well let's see what we did on the remix as we replaced the skin-tight leotard wearing band members with a wedding which doesn't look like it's going to get off to a non asundering start, what with the bride and her maids showing where they have already been asundered. Under!
Having seen our recent The Move contributor Randy Phillips of England sent us this remix of Fire Brigade. Phil tells us that in England on 5 November there are lots of fires built and burned all over the country to celebrate the fact that the government was not burned down in the sixteenth century. Those crazy Brits and their wacky history. On the original single cover artwork we see the band looking nothing if not cold. On the remix we find two babes desperately in need of the fire brigade as they appear to be stuck on a burning boat. Bonfire!
It can be disappointing to stumble across the artwork for an album which really doesn't need remixing, as where's the fun in that. So the cover for Boogie Down by Blackwell, which already features two naked babes, really does not require a remix. That doesn't mean we can't try, and on the remix we have increased the number of babes but otherwise left most things unchanged. Is it better? Who cares - we don't. Triple!
So, Paolo Nutini wishes to regale us with his song about New Shoes does he? That's as maybe, but taking a look at the cover artwork of his single, we can't even see if he is wearing shoes, let alone how aged they are. On the remix we find a babe wearing very shiny high heel shoes. Are they new? Well they are certainly shiny, so we will give her the benefit of the doubt. And lots more too. Reflection!
What a Wicked Game you play, that is what Chris Isaak sings. But does the cover artwork for his single explain anything about the nature of this game? It doesn't (other than, perhaps, having made Mr Isaak seem a little glum). The remix shows us more of the game, which appears to involve taping up naked babes in some kind of dungeon area. So the real question is, why would such a game make Mr Isaak appear so glum, as it doesn't have that effect on us. Spanking!
Halloween might be over, so it's time to revive those flagging senses and what reinvigorate the body. In effect you need to Bring Me To Life, which Evanescence can help us with. The thing is, on the original cover, the band member facing us seems more deadly than alive. To be fair, on the remix, the babe facing us also looks less than spritely but the look in her eyes brings certain parts of the male anatomy to life, without a doubt. Viagra!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1980s, Special Remixes, Halloween Hits, Angels & Devils, Busty, Mature, Safe For WorkHalloween is finally upon us, as fiendish ghouls and ghastly fiends take to the streets. The Misfits provide us with today's appropriately titled remix. On the original cover we find the band members looking suitably monochrome and blurred. On the remix we find a Halloween misfit, in the shape of a busty babe in a devil's outfit. Actually, she's not really that much of a misfit as she would not really stand out among all the other outfits that other misfits are likely to wear for parties on this dastardly day. Whooo!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1970s, Special Remixes, Halloween Hits, Busty, High Heels, Mature, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkAs the devilish day approaches, we continue our series of Halloween remixes with Devil Gate Drive by Suzi Quatro. On the original cover we find Ms Quatro standing on top of three folk who seem to be clawing at here. But where is the gate? It's on the remix of course, where a mature babe has found the gate concerned where the devil has already begun to have his way with her by making all her clothes fall off. Well, all except her high heels for some reason. Cast!
Our short season of Halloween remixes continues with Spiderwebs by No Doubt. On the original cover we find the band members trying to look spooky against the backdrop of a spider's web which has clearly been airbrushed in afterwards. Poor show! On the remix we find a babe who appears to be connected to a metal spiderweb made of chains. Now just how scary must the spider that spun that particular web be? Maybe he was a spiderzoid from Planet M? Steel!
