All I Need Is A Miracle - Mike And The Mechanics

All I Need Is A Miracle - Mike And The MechanicsAll I Need Is A Miracle - Mike And The MechanicsWe are struggling to understand why Mike And The Mechanics would think that All I Need Is A Miracle based on the artwork on the original front cover of their single, which simply shows a gas station mechanic dozing while sitting on a couple of tires and with an opened yet full bottle of Coke next to him. On the remix is a naughty nun who probably needs a miracle if her professional career is to be retrieved after posing for a topless picture. Habitual!

Hotshot - Shaggy

Hotshot - ShaggyHotshot - ShaggyShaggy has decided that on the original front cover artwork for his album Hotshot, the best thing to show would be his own face in slightly warm colors such as yellow, orange and red. On the remix we find a babe who is shooting heat from, it would appear, a flame-thrower. We think that this qualifies her as a hot-shot in a far more realistic way than just choosing some warm colors. Pipes!

Shake A Tailfeather - Ray Charles

Shake A Tailfeather - Ray CharlesShake A Tailfeather - Ray CharlesShake A Tailfeather is the name of this song by Ray Charles (though it is often mistakenly called Shake Your Tail Feather). On the original cover we find Mr Charles looking very cheerful and the reason why is revealed on the remix, where we find a happy looking hottie shaking a tail-feather in front of her. We are not quite sure what bird has provided the feather, maybe a flamingo as it is pink? Dye!

The Boat That I Row - Lulu

The Boat That I Row - LuluThe Boat That I Row - LuluLulu sings about The Boat That I Row. There isn't, though, much evidence of what kind of boat this is on the original single front cover artwork, though we do find Ms Lawrie looking somewhat forlorn into the distance - maybe that is where her boat is. On the remix we find a babe who is standing alongside a boat, which we can only presume is the one she rows, though rowing in platform boots, stockings and a bikini doesn't seem the most practical approach. Hose!

Offshore - Chicane

Offshore - ChicaneOffshore - ChicaneWhat happens Offshore? According to the original single front cover artwork from Chicane, some aircraft chem-trails, or are they pieces of string holding up some cloth triangles? Not at all clear. On the remix, what happens offshore is that some shapely babe lounges around in a bikini off the side of a sailing boat, which oddly, is exactly what we thought might happen. Realism!

Apparently Nothin' - Young Disciples

Apparently Nothin' - Young DisciplesApparently Nothin' - Young DisciplesApparently Nothin' seems to be precisely the amount of effort that went in to the original front cover artwork for this single from The Young Disciples, though to give them an ounce of credit, they did make the word 'disc' in a different color. On the remix we find a busty babe who is wearing a dress that is made of very sheer material and from which it is clear that she is apparently wearing nothin' else underneath it. Translucent!

The Bottle - Paul Weller

The Bottle - Paul WellerThe Bottle - Paul WellerThere are so many routes we could have taken when remixing the single front cover artwork for The Bottle by Paul Weller. Although there is a bottle pictured on the original cover, it's rather subtly hidden among some jumbled up letters. On the remix there is also a subtly placed bottle, though you may not have spotted it, what with being distracted by the cute babe alongside it. Glass!

Sucker - Charli XCX

Sucker - Charli XCXSucker - Charli XCXCharli XCX (which isn't a proper Roman numeral in case you were wondering) indicates that somewhere there should be a Sucker. On the orignal album front cover artwork we find a lollipop, so you can see how that might relate to the title. Now there is, of course, an obvious remix for this but we haven't gone in that direction and instead on the remix we find a babe who has got stuck in a sucker, though why she was hoovering her boobs is anybody's guess. Suction!

Dance With The Devil - Cozy Powell

Dance With The Devil - Cozy PowellDance With The Devil - Cozy PowellDance With The Devil, is what Cozy Powell tells us that we should be doing. On the original single front cover artwork, Mr Powell helps us visualize this by smoking a cigarette in black and white. On the remix we find a devil who is dancing, tempting us to join in. Beware though, because it's know that dancing with the devil can lead to boogieing with Beelzebub and you wouldn't want that now would you? Lucifer!

Back To Back - Status Quo

Back To Back - Status QuoBack To Back - Status QuoAccording to our list of every single (and album) artist on the AllBum.Art web-site, Status Quo have the highest number of cover artwork remixes. Maybe the titles of their songs are written especially to encourage this. For the album Back To Back, the original album cover shows two articulated lorries next to each other. If trucks had backs, they would be back to back. On the remix two naked babes balance precariously on each other with their backs doing the balancing. Definitely back to back. Front!
