Shopping - Pet Shop Boys

Shopping - Pet Shop BoysShopping - Pet Shop BoysNice to get an entry submitted by one of our readers. We will let Tallie Hough of Sunderland, England take up the story:

Though this song by the Pet Shop Boys was never released as a single in its own right, I felt it was deserving of a remix of its own. So the original cover for Shopping is not actually the original cover, but one I made up. The remix is also made up as you can see and shows a naked girl going shopping. Sadly I could not find a picture of a naked babe shopping in a pet shop which would have been better.

Never mind Tallie, we like your thinking and approve of your remix. Monetary!

Happiness - Pizzaman

Happiness - PizzamanHappiness - PizzamanHappiness is what Pizzaman brings. Well there's no lie there. Most deliveries of pizza by a pizzaman will bring happiness, cheese covered, tomato sauce laden, thick crust happiness. The original cover artwork though shows none of this high-calorie happiness, but instead focuses on some abstract pixellated nonsense. Thankfully we at AllBum.Art have been able to rectify this situation and return the thick crust cheeriness with a pretty girl as well. Total happiness?

Blue Hat For A Blue Day - Nick Heyward

Blue Hat For A Blue Day - Nick HeywardBlue Hat For A Blue Day - Nick HeywardA Blue Hat For A Blue Day, is apparently what singer Nick Heyward recommends. How odd, then, that the original cover of Mr Heyward's single, though showing the singer himself, does not provide us with any purview of how blue the day is, what shade of blue the hat is, or who, indeed, is wearing the hat. Thankfully in the remix all of this is made clear though we find that no-one is actually wearing the hat, but is holding it in their hand. Cornflower!

Run Till U Shine - Andrew Bennett Featuring Sir Adrian

Run Till U Shine - Andrew Bennett Featuring Sir AdrianRun Till U Shine - Andrew Bennett Featuring Sir AdrianRun Till U Shine. What does that mean exactly? Unfortunately, the original single cover of this track by Andrew Bennett Feat. Sir Adrian does not help at all. A cartoon angel, sitting on a cartoon cloud, wearing cartoon headphones and clicking his/her fingers to the music. Great. But where's the running and shining? Heaven only knows! The remix solves this completely as we a see a beautiful bikini-clad babe running along a beach in the sunshine. Beauty!

Strings Of Life (Stronger On My Own) - Soul Central Featuring Kathy Brown

Strings Of Life (Stronger On My Own) - Soul Central Featuring Kathy BrownStrings Of Life (Stronger On My Own) - Soul Central Featuring Kathy BrownThe original single cover artwork for Strings Of Life (Stronger On My Own) by Soul Central Feat. Kathy Brown shows what exactly? The nose and lips of who? Maybe it's Kathy Brown but this is not clear. It is also not clear how the strings are to make things stronger. Thankfully, we at AllBum.Art have been able to illustrate how the strings were meant to work. As you can see, the otherwise naked babe has been tied up. The strings give support to her torso and make her stronger. On her own. Knotty!

Who Dat Girl - Flo Rida Featuring Akon

Who Dat Girl - Flo Rida Featuring AkonWho Dat Girl - Flo Rida Featuring AkonYo, yo, yo! Flo Rida to the A to the K to the O to the N. OK, so we should steer away from the whole rap thing. But not remixing covers. The original cover of Who Dat Girl shows Flo Rida sitting on a chair but no sign of Akon. Odd that. Also, there's no indication of 'who dat girl' is. Thankfully that's easy to fix and in the remix we can see who 'dat' girl is. If you look carefully, you will see that the chair has also been replaced by a stool. Oh, and all her clothes have fallen off. Mysterical!

Leap Up And Down (Wave Your Knickers In The Air) - St. Cecelia

Leap Up And Down (Wave Your Knickers In The Air) - St. CeceliaLeap Up And Down (Wave Your Knickers In The Air) - St. CeceliaNews arrives at the AllBum.Art headquarters from Alan Preston of Macclesfield, England of a revival of an old 1970s song. Leap Up And Down by St Cecelia was apparently banned from radio in England when it was first released but is having a new lease of life as a summer party song. We can see why as the title lends itself to many a happy summertime party. The original cover shows the band leaping around with some womens' knickers in their hands. The remix shows a babe of around the same era who is not leaping as much, but who is waving her knickers in the air. Thanks for the remix Alan. Float it brother!

Dish Of The Day - Fool's Garden

Dish Of The Day - Fool's GardenDish Of The Day - Fool's GardenWhat must Fool's Garden have been thinking when they sat down to work out what images to put on the front cover of their album Dish Of The Day? One thing that is for certain, is that they were not thinking very literally. A hand-drawn fish is not dishy, just fishy! The remix is dishy, and shows a hot babe preparing something in a kitchen. And she seems to be preparing for something as well. Stirring!

Just One Look - The Hollies

[img=images/hollies-just-one-look-1.jpg popup=true width=150 height=150][img=images/hollies-just-one-look-2.jpg popup=true width=150 height=150][img=images/hollies-just-one-look-remix.jpg popup=true float=right width=150 height=150]
The original cover for Just One Look by The Hollies scores on only one of the criteria that make for a great piece of album artwork. That is - it features a picture of the band. But what is it that they are looking at? And why is one look all that is needed? The first of today's triple-play remixes does away with the band but answers these other questions. One look down the panties of the babe on the left is obviously more than enough for the girl on the right. And probably for any hot-blooded male too! On the second remix we find a babe who is offering you just one look. One look at what is underneath her bra. So you only have that one look to make your decision as to whether this remix is better than the original. Decide!

Sledgehammer - Peter Gabriel

Sledgehammer - Peter GabrielSledgehammer - Peter GabrielWho could forget Peter Gabriel's iconic video for Sledgehammer. One of the first plasticine based cartoons of our era. So it is odd that the original single artwork does not reflect this icon-o-plastic theme. To be fair, neither does the remix. Instead we see one chick about to hit another babe with a sledgehammer. Why she would do this is not certain but given her PVC clad body, it may be that she is familiar with the use of heavy tools in a less than engineering environment. Banging!
