Cover Artwork Remix of Gabriella Cilmi Warm This Winter Original Cover Artwork of Gabriella Cilmi Warm This Winter Warm This Winter by Gabriella Cilmi is a cover version of the Connie Francis song. And one good cover deserves another! In the original cover we see Ms Cilmi in what might be a wintery scene, though it's difficult to tell as she's holding an umbrella. In the remix we see a girl who has got a very odd way of keeping warm - wearing nothing but red high heel boots in the snow. Any volunteers to go and warm her up... form an orderly queue now.

Cover Artwork Remix of Sarah Mclachlan Wintersong Original Cover Artwork of Sarah Mclachlan Wintersong Wintersong was a 2006 album by Canadian singer Sarah McLachlan. On the cover we see Ms McLachlan looking very wintery in a snowy scene in a floaty white dress, eh? The remix is equally wintery but the difference is that it seems the lady in the picture has foregone the wearing of the floaty white dress altogether. To be honest, she looks a bit chilly, but it is an album full of winter songs so what did she expect, eh?

Keep Warm - Jinny

Cover Artwork Remix of Jinny Keep Warm Original Cover Artwork of Jinny Keep Warm Not exactly a Holiday hit, but one that deserves to come out in the Winter. Those crazy 1990s dance acts - Jinny was apparently Italian. And apparently the way they Keep Warm is to wear over-sized ballet shoes. In terms of warmth, they must be about as cozy as standing around in the snow wearing nothing but hold-up stockings, high heels and a smile. Which oddly, is exactly how the babe in the remixed cover is standing. If anything, she looks warmer than Jinny. Then again, she is hot!

Cold As Ice - Foreigner

Original Cover Artwork of Foreigner Cold As Ice The cover of this 1977 single from soft rock legendeña¹ Foreigner looks like something that a college student has hand-drawn during their lunchbreak. It does appear to show the band members, but in almost cartoon form. Why they are wearing long raincoats and are stood amongst some old-style leather luggage is, frankly, neither clear, nor important. The color of their faces would not, at first glance, demonstrate any kind of low temperature environment being flushed with rosy cheeks. Even at a second glance, the solution to this anomoly does not reveal itself in any meaningful way. But then again, the lyrics of the song 'you're as cold as ice' suggest that it may not be the band themselves who are chilly, but the person (presumably female) that they are singing about.

Cover Artwork Remix of Foreigner Cold As Ice The Internet, of course, can find anything even a long lost picture of a freezing cold girl being song about by a soft rock bandoola². And here she is - the girl that Foreigner are singing about. The Internet tells us that her name is Glacia and, common sense tells us that she is literally, as cold as ice. This is not because she has mutated genes which enable her body temperature to sink to 32F, but instead that someone has mistakenly left her standing in an ice cold field with no clothes on, or at least none that are visible. It seems much more appropriate that the cover for the single should feature Glacia than it should the band themselves and this is exactly what this revision of the artwork depicts.
