Too Cold - Roots Manuva

Too Cold - Roots ManuvaToo Cold - Roots ManuvaAs February draws to a close and the mercury begins to rise, we close the month with a chilly cover remix of Too Cold by Roots Manuva. On the original cover of the single, we see Mr Smith (easy to see why he chose a different stage name) being the subject of a police raid. On the remix, something far more chilling. A naked girl standing by a lake on a freezing cold day having a bucket of ice water thrown over her. ALS challenge anyone?

The Wall - Pink Floyd

The Wall - Pink FloydThe Wall - Pink FloydAll in all, you're just another brick in The Wall is the famous refrain from the title song from the album of much the same name by Pink Floyd. Now we can't knock the band for their choice of cover for their album, being, as it is, a wall. But we can improve it. Instead of the plain white wall, we see a regular brick wall and would you know it, it has structural instabilities and is having to be held up by a babe. Who didn't have time to get dressed. Stanchion!

She's So Lovely - Scouting For Girls

She's So Lovely - Scouting For GirlsShe's So Lovely - Scouting For GirlsHalf marks to Scouting For Girls on the original cover of their single She's So Lovely. Why only half marks? Because the song is from 2007 but the picture of the lovely girl (girls actually) on the cover could be taken from the 1870s. The remix fixes this temporal anomaly and replaces the girls with their pretty parasols with another girl who is equally picturesque but more modern. Upkeep!

Stuck On You - Lionel Richie

Stuck On You - Lionel RichieStuck On You - Lionel RichieAnother remix for soulful songster Lionel Richie. Stuck on you tells the story of how Mr Richie is in some way glued to another person. The original cover suggests none of this, but instead makes out that what Mr Richie is really stuck on is a cowboy hat. The remix sees a babe that has got far too close to some rope covered in glue and is it is now stuck on her. Probably a good thing as other than the rope, she doesn't appear to be wearing anything else. Adhesive!

My Camera Never Lies - Bucks Fizz

My Camera Never Lies - Bucks FizzMy Camera Never Lies - Bucks FizzAccording to Bucks Fizz, whoever they are, My Camera Never Lies. It seems that, to demonstrate this, the band have dressed up in garb from the Victorian era and posed as if they were in front of an old box camera. Which is a lie, in that they are not from the Victorian era, nor was the picture taken with a box camera. In the remix we see a babe offering a more modern take on cameras telling the truth, as she is taking a 'selfie'. Sadly, she seems to have forgotten that it might have been better to pose in a slightly less revealing position, or failing that get dressed first. Scarlet!

Driving In My Car - Madness

Driving In My Car - MadnessDriving In My Car - MadnessThere is a simple points scheme here at AllBum.Art. If the cover of a single or album contains the band members (or solo artist) and relates to the title of the song, it scores full points. Thus the original cover for Driving In My Car by Madness scores very highly. There is therefore no need to remix it, but that doesn't stop us and on the remix, we see a babe who can come and drive my car any day. Beep beep!

Do That To Me One More Time - Captain & Tennille

Do That To Me One More Time - Captain & TennilleDo That To Me One More Time - Captain & TennilleAnother suggestion by Scott of Orlando, FL. This time it's Do That To Me One More Time by Captain & Tennille that comes under the spotlight. It's nice that on the original cover we can see the Captain and the Tennille but what is it that they want to be done to them again? On the remix, not Captain and no Tennille but instead a babe tied to a chair and a guy with a whip in his hand. The look in her eyes clearly asks the question of whether he is going to do that to her one more time… Decide!

Don't Stop - Status Quo

Don't Stop - Status QuoDon't Stop - Status QuoBack in November 2013 we had a whole week of remixes of covers of songs by Status Quo but as such prolific songwriters of twelve-bar blues based material, there's plenty more to have a go at. Don't Stop is both a single and an album by the band. On the remix we find out exactly why not stopping is recommended. Though it might be enticing to come to a halt to see a naked chick standing on a highway overpass, it is likely to lead to a severe traffic incident. Don't do it. Don't stop. Oh, and a message to the chick concerned, don't stop doing that either. Choice!

Stuck In The Middle With You - Stealers Wheel

Stuck In The Middle With You - Stealers WheelStuck In The Middle With You - Stealers WheelStuck In The Middle With You… what images does this conjure up? Is it a bunch of 1970s band members such as those of the band Stealer's Wheel standing around looking, for the most part, bored (the guy on the right is even yawning). Or does it throw up images of a sexy cougar stuck between two younger guys. The latter you say? Well that's what the remix shows. Why is it all in orange? No idea, other than that is what the original single did. Mandarin!

Dance (Disco Heat) - Sylvester

Dance (Disco Heat) - SylvesterDance (Disco Heat) - SylvesterIt seems that in the height of the disco era in the 1970s, there were many sexy covers for singles produced. Dance (Disco Heat) by Sylvester does not capture the spirit of this era very well, which is why we, the good folk at AllBum.Art, are here to remix it for you. The remix shows a babe who is dancing and is hot, quite literally, as she is dancing by a fire. That's better. Sizzle!
