Naked And Sacred - Maria Nayler

Naked And Sacred - Maria NaylerNaked And Sacred - Maria NaylerWhen you release a song whose title is Naked And Sacred, as Maria Nayler has done, you ought to think more carefully about what should go on the front cover artwork. For example, the picture of the babe wearing a miter but otherwise nude on the remix would be an example of what would reflect the song title. Sitting on a bench in what looks like a college changing room, taking off (or putting on) a shoe doesn't really cut it. Locker!

Cutt Off - Kasabian

Cutt Off - KasabianCutt Off - KasabianWhat would you expect to find on the front artwork for Cutt Off by Kasabian? Maybe it is what might just, if you squinted at it in the right light, appear to be a man's face covered in a cloth, with his forehead all stripey like. That is clearly what the band thought when they put the single cover together. On the remix we find a babe holding a pair of scissors to a top she is wearing which is precariously short in the first place. One snip and it truly will be cut off. Severed!

What I Got Is What You Need - Unique

What I Got Is What You Need - UniqueWhat I Got Is What You Need - UniqueWhat I Got Is What You Need is the bold statement made by Unique. And if what it is that you need happens to be a white triangle against a backdrop of a pink and yellow square, then the original single cover artwork does, indeed, have what you need. So in that sense, the addition of a babe who does seem to have pretty much everything you might need to the front cover is probably not for you. On the other hand, if white triangles aren't your thing… Necessity!

Strip Me - Natasha Bedingfield

Strip Me - Natasha BedingfieldStrip Me - Natasha BedingfieldWhen you issue an instruction such as Strip Me, as Natasha Bedingfield has done, you would expect the front cover of the album to allude in some way or other to the act of stripping. On the original artwork we don't find any evidence of this. On the remix, something not at all unexpected has happened. Some babe was walking through a builders yard singing the song and the construction workers took her instruction way too literally. Rewind!

Angel - Eurythmics

Angel - EurythmicsAngel - EurythmicsAnother remix for Eurythmics, this time for their single Angel. On the original cover artwork we find the lead singer in monochrome. Is that all it took in the early 1990s to become angelic? We don't know. But we do know that on the remix, the monochrome theme is continued, but that the babe has an enormous pair. Of wings, we meant. Surely this would qualify as angelic, not just by 1990s standards, but even today? We think so. Cherub!

Who's That Girl - Eurythmics

Who's That Girl - EurythmicsWho's That Girl - EurythmicsThe odd thing about the question Who's That Girl, when considering the original single artwork by Eurythmics, is that the only female on the cover is cross-dressing as a boy, beard and all. On the remix we find three babes who seem intent on flashing their asses at us. One of the girls is sticking her tongue out at us. You may ask who that girl is, or indeed one of her friends as they are all worthy of being identified and being given a damned good telling off for being so rude. Snook!

Wrapped Up - Olly Murs Featuring Travie McCoy

Wrapped Up - Olly Murs Featuring Travie McCoyWrapped Up - Olly Murs Featuring Travie McCoyApparently, Olly Murs Featuring Travis McCoy are Wrapped Up. We say 'apparently' because there is no evidence of any wrapping going on, unless you count a shirt and a coat, but that's not really much wrapping in the grand scheme of things. On the remix we find a babe who is wrapped up in a pretty red ribbon and, wouldn't you guess, nothing else. She isn't wrapped up particularly warmly, but her outfit is a gift. Unwrapping!

Highly Strung - Spandau Ballet

Highly Strung - Spandau BalletHighly Strung - Spandau BalletAnother remix for those new romantics, Spandau Ballet. On the original single cover artwork for Highly Strung, we find a blonde haired woman who appears more to have been roped than strung, but we will let them off this. But there isn't a lot of string, or rope, involved. On the remix, we find an Asian babe who has also been roped up, but there is far more rope involved, so we could safely say she is highly roped, or highly strung as the saying goes. Knotty!

Too Close - Blue

Too Close - BlueToo Close - BlueWhat is Too Close for Blue? Maybe it is the photographer, though he seems to have framed the band fairly well on the original front cover artwork. Maybe it is the band who are too close to each other. Either way, on the remix, we find two babes who are also standing close to each other but whether this constitutes being too close is, of course, matter of opinion. But wait, there is something else, they look nearly identical to each other meaning that they are too close to tell apart. Twins!

Cosmic Girl - Jamiroquai

Cosmic Girl - JamiroquaiCosmic Girl - JamiroquaiWhat does a Cosmic Girl look like according to Jamiroquai? We have no idea, because on the original single cover artwork, there is nothing except a silhouette of the singer surrounded by what are presumably meant to be cosmic orbit rings. On the remix we find a real cosmic babe, standing in the corridors of a spaceship, wearing a latex space suit and high heels (as is the requirement in the cosmic future). Zipper!
