Roy Orbison, the Big O, Royly Woyly, the Orbmaster, Roy-O, whatever it is that you wish to call him, brings us this festive feature and sings about Pretty Paper. More accurately, on the original single front cover artwork we find Ole Orbitron playing his guitar. On the remix we find a babe standing in front of a wall that is covered in paper. The paper itself doesn't look that pretty, but the babe does fall into that category, though her prettiness is hard to judge given her nakedness. Mâché!
Another remix for the Irish songsters U2, this time for their album and single of the same name, The Unforgettable Fire. What makes the fire so unforgettable? The original cover artwork suggests that it is a run-down building covered in ivy, in moody black and white. The remix tells a different story and the reason why the fire is unforgettable - it is because a hot (both literally and figuratively) babe wearing nothing but her high heel shoes is sitting in front of it. Remember!
To be straight with you, we actually have no idea what was going on when we decided to remix the single front cover artwork for Make It With You by Let Loose, because although the original is, to put it mildly, lacking any indication of what or whom is to be made with you, the remix isn't that much clearer. ON it is a babe who appears to be half naked, sitting on the set of a film, or at least near to the director's chair. Feel free to make it with her, what ever it is that she is making. A film maybe? Cinema!
So, according to MN8, I've Got A Little Something For You, or they have a little something for us, put another way. Given the poses of the band members, it might seem that the little something they have got for us is hidden in their underwear. On the remix, a babe has a little something for us, but she's not hiding what it is, or the fact that it is, unquestionably, little. Something!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1990s, Special Remixes, Winter Warmers, Hairy, Mature, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkWhat would you expect to find when looking at the front cover artwork for the single Flowers In December by Mazzy Star? Perhaps it would be a fuzzy, almost shriveled looking flower head, after all it is usually cold in December. Or would it be, as shown on the remix, two babes out and about in the snow wearing nothing other than fur coats. Maybe both are valid visions of flowers, maybe not. Floral!
Nothing represents a Flame more accurately than someone wearing a long sweater and a plant pot on their head standing next to a partially opened door with red Lego on the floor behind it. At least that is what we are led to believe if the original single front cover artwork published by Sebadoh means. Oh, and it has to be blurry and indistinct. On the remix is a nice big flame caused by an open fire. The view of the flame would be almost perfect if it wasn't being obscured by some chick in stockings and heels prostrating herself on a rug. Some people!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1960s, Special Remixes, Halloween Hits, High Heels, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkWe're not really sure whether Dead End Street by The Kinks qualifies as a Halloween Hit, but as it involves the word 'dead', we're going to include it. On the original single front cover artwork, we can see a dreadful montage of the band members holding umbrellas. On the remix we see a babe standing at the end of a street, the dead end that is. She had better be careful wearing nothing but a scarf, stockings and heels as there is no escape from a dead end street. Undead!
We have to hand it to Roger Waters, the cover of his album The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking ably demonstrates some of the pros. It is, of course, perfectly normal to find a naked babe standing by the side of the street with her thumb out trying to flag down a vehicle to give her a lift. So much so that on the remix we have not really changed anything other than the perspective of the camera. Roll on!
Nothing says Dare Me (Stupidisco) better than a fuzzy picture of a babe in a boxing rung. That is what we are led to believe by Junior Jack Featuring Shena on the original front cover artwork of their single. On the remix we find a babe who has been dared. The dare appears to involve her pole-dancing naked on a street light n a city at night. The extent of daringness would depend on how busy the street is and how late at night it is. Neither things are clear. Legend!
We always like to bring you something special for Halloween. This year it is the turn of Whodini and his spooky song, Freaks Come Out At Night. The original single cover artwork is lackluster, with the only indication of anything spooky being the fact that the words Whodini appears to have been written in blood, perhaps. On the remix we find a babe who is very freaky, and who has come out at night, out of her dress that is. Dark!
