Single Covers, Singles Of The 2000s, Special Remixes, Christmas Crackers, Winter Warmers, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkWarm 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.
A Holiday hit that's been covered so many times that a remix of the cover seems highly appropriate. This version of Lonely This Christmas is the original one from British glam rock band Mud. The original cover sees the band stood all alone in the middle of the cover. The remix has a girl who, we suspect, would solve their problems of loneliness. Either way, we're certain that wearing just a piece of ribbon she won't be lonely this Christmas!
Wizzard claim that they Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday. We at AllBum.Art are not sure we do. For one, all the shops are closed so there is no chance to buy anything. Everyone would starve and the economy would grind to a halt. On the other hand, given the number of chicks who seem to be willing to get naked for the Holidays, it might have its positives. In the remix of this cover we see a suitably seasonally clad (e.g. nude) babe sitting by a Christmas tree. Now that we could get used to everyday.
One of those 1970s Christmas songs that you don't hear very often, Hey, Mister Christmas was a not particularly well known hit for glam rock gurus Showaddywaddy. The original cover sees what we can only assume to be Mr Christmas wearing jeans and carrying a guitar. In the remix, a different Mr Christmas is surrounded by a bevy of babes who for some reason are only wearing panties and a Holiday hat. Hey!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 2010s, Special Remixes, Christmas Crackers, Lingerie, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkA lovely lilting lullaby of a song, Home For Christmas is by Norwegian act Maria Mena. On the original cover we see Ms Mena standing in a forest at night with a dress hanging off her shoulders. In the remix, night has become day and in that period it appears the dress has fallen off completely leaving nothing but lilting lingerie. No wonder she is so keen to come home!
Following yesterday's Romanian revelation, we were idly searching the Internet for Romanian pop stars and came across Inna. Remixing the cover of her 2009 single I Need You For Christmas is easy when there are so many sexy pictures of her all over the web. In the original version we see Inna with Santa. In the remix she is on her own and looking more needy, in the snow with only her underwear on. The title of the song has never been more appropriate!
According to Simon Dexter of Truro, England, The Cheeky Girls are two Romanian babes who became to fame on a British talent show singing a song about 'touch my bum'. They also released a Christmas song in 2003 called Have A Cheeky Christmas. The original cover shows the girls (who are sisters) in festive outfits. Simon says this is one of the easiest remixes ever as the girls have posed topless and naked for various magazines in England and so he sent us this remix for our site. Thanks Simon and a Merry Christmas to you.
It wouldn't be the Holidays in downtown Puerto Rico (or anywhere else in Latin America for that matter) without the strains of Feliz Navidad ringing out. This version by José Feliciano is the standard version against which all other version are measured. The original cover shows Mr Feliciano playing his guitar against backdrop of snowflakes. The remixed cover is also another version against which others should be measured, something like 42-26-36, wouldn't you say?
Ferrante & Teicher? Never heard of them? No, us neither but since when has that stopped us remixing the cover of someones single or album. This is their 1996 album (of piano based jingling) called, inventively, We Wish You A Merry Christmas. They have the right idea, with a pretty girl in a Santa outfit adorning the front cover. All we have done is remove her Santa outfit, given her a friend in the same state of undress and added a bit of seasonal snow where it's necessary!
Joy To The World was a mini-album (or EP) by incredulous crooner Michael Bolton. The original cover has Mr Bolton looking ludicrous singing earnestly against a backdrop of snow covered trees. But lo! It seems that the cover has been airbrushed - the correct version has one of Mr Bolton's fans (who may well be called Joy) standing behind showing her joy to the world. Good job that we at AllBum.Art were able to recover the original from Mr Bolton's recycle bin!
