Three At A Table For Two - Doris Day 

Cover Artwork Remix of Doris Day 3 At A Table For 2 Original Cover Artwork of Doris Day 3 At A Table For 2 This must be one of the oldest songs we've remixed here at AllBum.Art. Three At A Table For Two was sung by forces darling Doris Day in 1940. The original cover sees Ms Day smiling sweetly, but where is the table, and who is the interloper making the company a crowd? The remix, quite vividly, shows the situation. Two people were sat at a table having a nice cup of coffee together when along comes some gregarious girl and sits down between them getting in their way. Very distracting we would imagine.

Happy Xmas (War Is Over) - John & Yoko 

Original Cover Artwork of John And Yoko Happy Xmas Do Christmas songs come any bigger than this one from former Beatle John Lennon (R.I.P.) and his partner Yoko Ono. Happy Xmas (War Is Over) must be one of the most (over) played songs on the radio during the Holiday season. It has been covered by several artists since its first release in 1971. The cover sees John and Yoko together with the Plastic Ono Band and the Harlem Community Choir who feature on the song. Not bad going for the artwork artists of the time: they actually feature the artists on the cover of the single. Unfortunately, there are a little lost amidst a crowd of onlookers.

Cover Artwork Remix of John And Yoko Happy Xmas This simplified cover has been stripped bare, back to the absolute basics (of which surely John and Yoko would approve). Gone are the choir and the Plastic Ono Band who, whilst rightly sharing the limelight, do detract a little from the otherwise simplicity of just representing the main artists themselves. This revise cover features just two things. Firstly we see a John (so called after its inventor Sir John Harrington). Secondly, we see an egg (fried) and surrounding the yolk of the egg, is the letter 'O'. So, we have John and Yolk-O and thus the original sanity of the cover is restored to its naked essentials.

Merry Christmas!

Pink Christmas - Moneyshot Cosmonauts 

Original Cover Artwork of Moneyshot Cosmonauts Pink Christmas What the F...? Who or what are the Moneyshot Cosmonauts? And anyhow, shouldn't out and out commie barstewards be locked up in a Guantanamo prison and never let out? That's not a very christian approach to love and peace is it? If you don't know who the Moneyshot Cosmonauts are, use your noggin and Google or Bing or Bong them or whatever it takes. What you will find is their cover of the Pink song So What, with Christmassy lyrics that they call Pink Christmas. The artwork for this song though has two main flaws: (1) It's not Christmassy and (2) It's not pink. Of course, that can be rectified...

Cover Artwork Remix of Moneyshot Cosmonauts Pink Christmas So now we have a nice combination of pinkness and Christmassiness and artwork sanity has been restored to full festive force. But compared to the likes of Bing Crosby, why has this very obscure song been singled our for such important treatment. Isn't it blatantly obvious? What else could be done with this picture of the naked lady in pink gloves and a white fur scarf? There are very few songs that involve both pinkness and Christmassiness that could serve as a platform for the revelation of this pretty pink perky person. That, and the Christmas beer talking.

Christmas - Michael Bublé 

Original Cover Artwork of Michael Buble Christmas Micheal, Michael, Michael. Why, oh why, oh why, do you insist on calling yourself Boob Lay? It makes for the easiest jokes on your album covers of all time. This 2011 album, unexcitedly called Christmas has the Canadian crooner's caramel voice pouring over slinky silky Christmas songs. And what picture do we get for our hard earned dollars? Well, none other than Mr Bublé himself who appears to have bought a Christmas present for someone or other and is attempting to deliver it in the middle of a snow-storm. Not a sensible move, but then again probably a quicker way to get things delivered than using the Canadian postal system which, as everyone knows, is actually run by penguins.

Cover Artwork Remix of Michael Buble Christmas It seems just too easy to replace Mr Bublé's cover with an alternative. But easy is simple and simple is quick and easy. And so Mr Bublé has been replaced by a very (very) busty lady who is wearing a Christmas hat and a Christmas jacket of some kind and may even have been wearing a Christmas bra (which might even have been to Canadian seasonal standards). However her boobs are so large that whatever she was wearing seems to have been unable to hold them and now they just lay there in front of her. Hence we now have an album that can rightly be called Christmas with Micheal Boob Lay. Voila (as they say in Montréal).

Baby It's Cold Outside - Various Artists 

Original Cover Artwork of Baby Its Cold Outside A seasonal classic, written as long ago as 1944, Baby It's Cold Outside has been performed and recorded by a long string of artists most notably:
  • Margaret Whiting and Johnny Mercer (1949)
  • Dean Martin (1959)
  • Ray Charles and Betty Carter (1961)
  • Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey (2004)
Very few pieces of original album art exist (and some versions were only released on compilation albums) and so this 'knitted sweater' design has been used as the basis for a re-work of this chilly tune.

Cover Artwork Remix of Baby Its Cold Outside The revised version stays with the knitted sweater idea but instead of a cosy 'warm inside' version, this one is most definitely 'cold outside'. The lady in the picture appears to be wearing nothing but a furry hat but is thankfully protected from the harsh chill of the cold by a furry jacket that she appears to be sitting on. How she got into this predicament, heavens only knows but presumably if she felt the cold she wouldn't have got like this in the first place. She can always put the furry jacket back on again, though without any trousers or other garments, it is unlikely to provide sufficient warmth. Perhaps her charming looks have an exothermic reaction with the surrounding snow. Or maybe not.

Christmas Time - Bryan Adams 

Original Cover Artwork of Bryan Adams Christmas Time It seems that so many Festive songs were recorded in the 1970s and 1980s. This 1985 hit comes to us courtesy of Mr Bryan Adams, who is Canadian. The song Christmas Time reached number 4 in the Billboard charts. Like so many songs of this era, it also suffers from a primary problem. In this case, we can see no evidence of Mr Adams himself, nor any evidence of its Canadian origin. In fact, the single cover artwork is very dull indeed and tells us nothing other than that the song is called Christmas Time and that it is by Mr Bryan Adams. The piece of holly and the simulated snowflakes, although adding some air of Christmassiness, do little to sell the single.

Cover Artwork Remix of Bryan Adams Christmas Time As you will now be aware, if you have been following the re-makes of Christmas artwork on AllBum.Art, it is law, in Canada, that at this time of year, women should wear red bikinis trimmed with white fur. It is appropriate then, that the cover should contain a picture of a lady in such an outfit. Appropriate but perhaps a little plain. Instead we see a lady who would be arrested in Canada as her costume lacks the obligatory white fur trim. It also seems that she lacks any sense as she is sat on a table and is holding her panties in her teeth. Maybe someone could let her know that they belong on her bottom which will otherwise get cold. Tut, tut.

Blue Christmas - Elvis Presley 

Original Cover Artwork of Elvis Presley Blue ChristmaMr Elvis Presley and his 1964 single Blue (hoo hoo) Christmas is another of those seasonal songs that can be heard across the country on the radio at this time of year, being close to Christmas (though being more grey and white than blue). The cover here is from a re-release and is not the original, but it does see Mr Presley in a nice christmassy sweater looking kind of blue. What is most unlikely, is that Mr Presley would be on his own at Christmas, especially if he was feeling blue, and so it only seems right that we should give him someone to feel blue about, blue with or whatever else takes his fancy.

Cover Artwork Remix of Elvis Presley Blue ChristmAh, a happier Mr Presley now as we find that all along there was someone there with him. In fact she seems quite the pretty one with her red corset with white fur trim, her red underwear and her white stockings. In that outfit, she almost seems Canadian what with the regulation red bra with white fur lining. Perhaps she is Canadian: just because Mr Presley lived in the south, doesn't mean he would necessarily turn someone away just because they came from northern climes, does it? She does look less suntanned than Mr Presley, a bit pale some might say. Then again, perhaps he liked that kind of thing.

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus - Jimmy Boyd 

Original Cover Artwork of I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus Jimmy Boyd sang I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus in 1952, when he was but 13 years old. At the time, the cover for many singles were generally very dull, however Mr Boyd appears to have done better than most with this cover which shows a Mommy (obvious by her semi-domestic apparel) kissing Santa Claus (obvious by his large stomach, red coat and white beard). And what's more there is a young boy, sat in the corner, clearly watching the scene unfold. This one wins an AllBum.Art thumbs up for managing to actually represent the song.

Cover Artwork Remix of I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus Just because the original cover is alright, doesn't mean it can't be improved upon. In this modernized cover, the Mommy concerned is a little less domesticated and the Santa Claus somewhat less convincing. But where the picture loses out in authenticity, it gains in audacity as it seems that Mommy has dressed up specially for the occasion in red hot-pants and silver stripper heels. It's almost as if she knew Santa was on his way and had prepared herself ready for him coming. There is one alternative explanation, that the Mommy concerned is actually one of the presents that Santa is delivering as there must be many a Daddy who would like her in their Christmas stockings.

Drive My Car - The Beatles 

Original Cover Artwork of The Beatles Drive My Car Here we see British superstars of the sixties, The Beatles posing on the cover of their 1965 single, Drive My Car. Their 'moptop' hairstyles all merging together in the center of the cover to give the impression that the four heads are somehow stuck together. As with many pieces of artwork from records of the time, the person responsible for making it missed one important factor, which is that there is absolutely nothing to do with cars anywhere on the cover. The only thing vaguely connected with automobiles is possibly the fact that if you cut a circle out of the cover it would probably be a similar shape to a tire.

Cover Artwork Remix of The Beatles Drive My Car And so on to the revised version. As with many covers, the boys have been replaced by girls. This time, instead of the four floppy haired Brits, we see four feisty felines. The rotational symmetry of the original cover has been kept, so that if you cut a circle out of it, it would still be a similar shape to a tire. What has been done to make the cover more connected with cars, however, is that the ladies are wearing outfits which suggest they know a bit about what goes on under the bonnet. Disappointingly though, if you look closer you will see that none of them has any grease marks on their outfits, suggesting that looks are deceptive and although they look like they could handle a torque wrench, in all probability they couldn't even spell it. Beep beep, beep beep, yeah!

Dancing On The Ceiling - Lionel Richie 

Original Cover Artwork of Lionel Richie Dancing On The Ceiling Ooooh, what a feelin'! When your Dancing On The Ceiling. Too right. A feeling that any second you will fall off and you will hit your head on the floor. But that doesn't seem to deter Mr Richie from encouraging us to join in this rather pointless pass-time. The cover of this 1986 single (and album of the same name) sees Mr Richie in a white suit with his trademark black mustache looking a little as if he has already fallen and hurt his head. Or perhaps he is not smiling as the party is now over and he is having to sit on the floor. Or maybe his frizzy hair got damaged in all the falling off. Either or other way, he could have tried to smile a bit.

Cover Artwork Remix of Lionel Richie Dancing On The Ceiling The lady on the revised album (and single of the same name) cover, unlike Mr Richie, does appear to be dancing on the ceiling, with her legs very definitely up in the air. Sensibly she seems to be propping herself up on the floor to avoid falling and hurting her head. Mind you, in those heels, she would be prone to falling over even if she was dancing on the floor and not the ceiling.

Oh, hang on a cotton picking minute, someone has just turned the picture sideways haven't they? It's just a picture of a girl sat on some stairs that has been rotated. Still, she is pretty, in a sideways sort of a way and unlike Mr Richie, at least she is smiling.
