Better The Devil You Know - Sonia

Better The Devil You Know - SoniaBetter The Devil You Know - SoniaAnd so to Halloween itself, October 31. And what have we chosen to remix today? An obscure song called Better The Devil You Know by British babe Sonia. The song is about as cheery and bubblegum as it gets, which is what makes it such a good target for a remix. In the original cover we see Sonia standing in front of the British flag. Why? Because apparently this was an entry for a European song contest. In the remix we see a babe, but we don't see the devil she knows who is off to the left of the shot and is trying to poke her ass with his trident. She seems happy enough about it which is why she is willing to stick with the devil she knows. Lucifer!

I'm Not Scared - Eighth Wonder Featuring Patsy Kensit

I'm Not Scared - Eighth Wonder Featuring Patsy KensitI'm Not Scared - Eighth Wonder Featuring Patsy KensitOnly one more day until Halloween but Eighth Wonder Featuring Patsy Kensit are not the least bit concerned. At least Ms Kensit isn't as she sings I'm Not Scared. She does look a little scared on the cover of the single though so in the remix she has been replaced by a woman who is evidently not scared at all. She is carrying a cross to ward off evil spirits. It looks like the evil spirits may have gotten to her first though as most of her clothes seem to have fallen off. Invisible!

Witch's Promise - Jethro Tull

Witch's Promise - Jethro TullWitch's Promise - Jethro TullWhat is it that the Witch's Promised Jethro Tull? To look really stupid wearing cowboy outfits in a field? They obviously upset her somehow. In the remix we see the witches convening a coven to decide what to do next. If only they had allowed Jethro to use a picture of their coven it might have improved the cover. A witches coven convening cover. Oh, wait, they have in the remix. Dolly!

Devil Woman - Cliff Richard

Devil Woman - Cliff RichardDevil Woman - Cliff RichardAnother remix for Cliff Richard but this time with a Halloween theme. Mr Richard sings about a Devil Woman, but the cover of his single shows only Mr Richard singing about a devil woman. There's no indication of who the woman might be or what about her it is that makes her so devilish. In the remix we see the devil woman. She is clearly a woman and has horns, which must be why Mr Richard thought she was Ms Satan. Sadly for Mr Richard, it's just a dressing up outfit and Ms Satan is probably an angel in disguise. Presley!

Evil Woman - Electric Light Orchestra

Evil Woman - Electric Light OrchestraEvil Woman - Electric Light OrchestraOoh, an Evil Woman. That's what the Electric Light Orchestra are singing about. Sadly, the cover of their single shows a load of hirsute 1970s style men. Oh, you mean that's the band themselves - should have guessed. The remix shows a very evil woman. So evil in fact that she only needs to wear a hat and some black lipstick to show the extent of her evilness. Don't get too close as you might end up in a great deal of trouble. Warning!

Witchcraft - Frank Sinatra

Witchcraft - Frank SinatraWitchcraft - Frank SinatraFrank Sinatra's songs regularly make excellent sources for remixing covers here at AllBum.Art. His 1958 song Witchcraft is no exception. On the original cover artwork we see Mr Sinatra. That's it. Just Mr Sinatra. What isn't obvious is that even in the 1950s there were ways to erase parts of a picture (like we use Photoshop today) and so the remix is not a remix but just the original unadulterated picture. And what do you see? Witchcraft!

Devil - Stereophonics

Devil - StereophonicsDevil - StereophonicsNow we kind of like the original cover for the song Devil by Stereophonics. They have tried to reflect the somewhat naughty nature of a devil by introducing what appears to be walls covered in multicolored slime and a babe whose provenance is questionable. As for the lipstick, that bit is not clear. But if we rearrange the contents of the original cover we could yield the remix which shows a babe whose provenance is questionable wearing lipstick and being a bit of a devil. Comprende?

Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic - The Police

Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic - The PoliceEvery Little Thing She Does Is Magic - The PoliceIn the run-up to Halloween, we thought we at AllBum.Art should provide a few remixes of the cover artwork of some Halloween Hits. We're beginning gently with this remix of a song by The Police of their song Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic. The original cover is a little mystical, perhaps. In the remix we see the magician who is casting her spells on the band. Is it any wonder that they were so entranced by her that they felt the need to write a song about it? Abracadabra!

My Generation - The Who

My Generation - The WhoMy Generation - The WhoAnother viewer submitted entry, this time from Rosemary Kittle of Palm Bay, FL. Of her remix of My Generation by The Who she writes:

People think that us silver-surfers are just interested in vacations and pensions but many of us still enjoy a good time in the bedroom. My remix of the song shows how 'my generation' like to party!

We can see that Rosemary! If that is how your generation party, who are we to deny you a remix? Comfortable!

Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5 Featuring Christina Aguilera

Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5 Featuring Christina AguileraMoves Like Jagger - Maroon 5 Featuring Christina AguileraA first remix of a song by Maroon 5 here at AllBum.Art but not the first for Christina Aguilera. Moves Like Jagger tells the story of how the band's singer can perform like the old Rolling Stones frontman. But the cover does not demonstrate his skills in this regard. The remix shows a couple of babes, one of who looks frighteningly similar to the aforementioned Mr Jagger (if he had boobs) and both of who have moves worth watching. Show!
