Absolute Beginners - The Jam

Absolute Beginners - The JamAbsolute Beginners - The JamAnother remix for The Jam with their song Absolute Beginners. On the original single front cover artwork, the absolute beginningness of the song is illustrated by smoky roof-tops. On the remix, we find five beginners. How can you tell they are beginners? It's it obvious? They have gone to a gym class and not one of them has remember to bring their full gym outfit with them. Some have tried harder than others. Fail!

A Question Of Lust - Depeche Mode

A Question Of Lust - Depeche ModeA Question Of Lust - Depeche ModeWhat is A Question Of Lust? Well, it's obviously a single by Depeche Mode, but can the original cover artwork for the single help us to answer the question? Maybe it can, and the answer seems to be about kissing in a sensuous way but without allowing your lips to touch. The remix really doesn't do anything else to help with answering the question of lust, but does have a very lusty babe on it. Ditto!

Paradise Lost - The Herd

Paradise Lost - The HerdParadise Lost - The HerdThe Herd have not found Paradise Lost, but seem, as far as the original front cover artwork goes, to have lost it. That is unless you consider red and pink clothing, leather jackets and flouncy shirts to count as paradise. On the remix we find a babe who is sitting on a tropical beach (or at least a mock-up of one) and who has had her paradise stolen by a cheeky sea bird of some kind. Maybe this is more paradise found than lost, depending on your perspective. Dunes!

Flat Beat - Mr Oizo

Flat Beat - Mr OizoFlat Beat - Mr OizoWho can forget the iconic video for Flat Beat by Mr Oizo where his compadre Flat Eric (the teddy bear looking thing) taps his hands in time to the music, makes a phone call and does all manner of things that detract from the simple fact that the song is awful. The original front cover artwork shows a number of shots of said Flat Eric character. The remix features a babe who appears to be dancing to a beat, and is, as it goes, as flat-chested as the salt flats of Utah. Just as distracting. Toneless!

Welcome To Poppy's - Fun Lovin' Criminals

Welcome To Poppy's - Fun Lovin' CriminalsWelcome To Poppy's - Fun Lovin' CriminalsThank you to Fun Lovin' Criminals for helping work out where exactly things are. It's now clear we must be at Poppy's place as they have clearly said Welcome To Poppy's. Where exactly that is, is less than clear, as the original album front cover artwork shows us not much more than a grey building. On the remix is a babe in a field full of poppies. Is her name also Poppy? That would make an enormous amount of sense. Field!

Summertime - The Sundays

[img=images/sundays-summertime-1.jpg popup=true width=150 height=150][img=images/sundays-summertime-2.jpg popup=true width=150 height=150][img=images/sundays-summertime-remix.jpg popup=true width=150 height=150]

A summery triple-play for The Sundays and their single Summertime. On the original cover is a ladybug. Why this is representative of summer is not that clear. On the first remix, we have a babe standing in the sea in her bikini, which unfortunately seems to have gotten rather wet. It's a summery vision though. On the second remix a different babe has foregone her bikini altogether, and is standing in the altogether in a colorful floral garden. Wall!

Take It Off - The Donnas

Take It Off - The DonnasTake It Off - The DonnasTake It Off, screech The Donnas from inside a television on the original front cover artwork of their single. The question is, who is acting upon their instructions. The answer comes in the form of the remix where a mature babe has done as she has been told and taken off her dress. She appears to be standing outside by a tennis court, which may not have been the most sensible place to have done this. Ping!

Summer Rain - Belinda Carlisle

Summer Rain - Belinda CarlisleSummer Rain - Belinda CarlisleIt may be the summer, but that doesn't mean that every day is full of sunshine. In fact it sometimes rains in the summer, and that is what Belinda Carlisle is explaining in her song Summer Rain. On the original single front cover artwork someone has had a go at placing a picture of Ms Carlisle amongst some raindrops. On the remix we find a couple who are kissing and cuddling in the rain, and it must be the summer as the babe is not wearing very much and she would be shivering in the cold if it wasn't. Logic!

Everybody Loves The Sunshine - Roy Ayers Ubiquity

Everybody Loves The Sunshine - Roy Ayers UbiquityEverybody Loves The Sunshine - Roy Ayers UbiquityNot just one or two people, but Everybody Loves The Sunshine, according to Roy Ayers Ubiquity. To demonstrate this, on the original single front cover artwork, we find Mr Ayers in a sunny yellow t-shirt. On the remix we find a babe who is actually outside enjoying the sunshine, dipping her body in the sea by a boat. Nice looking bikini she has on. Chainmail!

Lola Stars And Stripes - The Stills

Lola Stars And Stripes - The StillsLola Stars And Stripes - The StillsSomething special for Independence Day, as we bring you Lola Stars And Stripes by The Stills. On the original single front cover artwork you will find some stars, but no stripes and no sign of Lola. On the remix we find the stars and stripes being held patriotically by a babe wearing nothing more than a military hat. Is she called Lola? It's a possibility, but even if she isn't, it doesn't detract from the celebration. Salute!
