Acceptable In The 80s - Calvin Harris

[img=images/calvin-harris-acceptable-in-the-80s-1.jpg popup=true width=150 height=150][img=images/calvin-harris-acceptable-in-the-80s-2.jpg popup=true width=150 height=150][img=images/calvin-harris-acceptable-in-the-80s-remix.jpg popup=true width=150 height=150]

A triple-play from Calvin Harris and his track Acceptable In The 80s. Apparently what it was that was acceptable before 1990, according to the original single cover artwork, was blobby orange sunglasses and a video game type font. Not very informative is it. On the first remix we see a babe holding an 80s classic, the Rubik's Cube. And on the second remix is a babe whose hairiness would be acceptable in the 80s, but today is uncommon and a little outdated. And although the Rubik's cube is having a bit of a revival, we home that hairiness might remain lost in the past. Fizz Buzz!

Bursting Out - Jethro Tull

Bursting Out - Jethro TullBursting Out - Jethro TullWe give a silver star to Jethro Tull for the original artwork for their album Bursting Out. That is because on the front cover they have a balloon, and as this was a live album, they show a singer on stage. The back side of the cover showed the other side of the balloon, a nice touch. On the remix we find a pinup babe bursting out from a grey piece of paper, as people did in the 1950s. It is perhaps a good job that she isn't wearing a bra, as she may have burst out of that too. Bust!

I Think Of You - The Merseybeats

I Think Of You - The MerseybeatsI Think Of You - The MerseybeatsI Think Of You, at least that is what The Merseybeats sang. On the original front cover artwork of their single, we find the band members staring at something, but what can it be that they are thinking of? That much is not clear. On the remix we find a babe of their era who is on the telephone and also staring at something. Maybe they are staring at each other, and let's face it, that would explain why the one was thinking of the other. Dial!

Pictures Of Lily - The Who

Pictures Of Lily - The WhoPictures Of Lily - The WhoWhilst we are in a Lily kind of vibe, here's a remix of Pictures Of Lily by The Who. The original single cover artwork shows us the band members who may or may not be looking at pictures of lily, or any other kind of water-based flora we can not tell. On the remix is another babe who has ended up drenched in a pond with water lilies all around her and one on her head. How comical she looks. We wonder if she might even be called Lily. Nymphaea!

Ch-Check It Out - The Beastie Boys

Ch-Check It Out - The Beastie BoysCh-Check It Out - The Beastie BoysLet's Ch-Check It Out with the Beastie Boys. And what do we find when we do this, well none other than a rat singing into a microphone. So let's remix this cl-classic and on the re-remix we find two babes and a guy. The guy is looking at the second of the babes. The first of the babes is undressing the second of the babes and asking the guy to check it out. It's clear what he is meant to be checking on, it's more of a pussy than a rat. Seventies!

Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) - Nancy Sinatra

Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) - Nancy SinatraBang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) - Nancy SinatraFriday already, how the week just flies by. And here we are with another remix from this week's special guest, Nancy Sinatra, none other than Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down). On the original cover of the song, we find Ms Sinatra sitting down on the floor. Could it be that she has already been shot down, or is it more bang bang? Either way, the remix shows a more likely bang bang situation, and if they are not careful their baby will shoot them down. Table!

Four Little Heels - Brian Hyland

Four Little Heels - Brian HylandFour Little Heels - Brian HylandA user submitted entry by Colin Hesketh of England. We will let Colin tell you the story.

The original of Four Little Heels by Brian Hyland doesn't have any heels on it at all. My remix has two women, both wearing heels, which maked 4 heels in total.

Quite right Colin. We note that they are taking pictures of each other too, which is an admirable passtime and very 1960s. Flash!

Mama's Pearl - The Jackson 5

Mama's Pearl - The Jackson 5Mama's Pearl - The Jackson 5Some bands make so little effort with the covers of their songs and the original cover of Mama's Pearl by The Jackson 5 is one of these. Why the band had so little imagination other than to use a plain red cover is anyone's guess. Well it was, until we carefully removed the red covering to reveal the picture underneath. Now it's clear why they painted over the picture of mama with her pearls in red paint. She seems to think that wearing pearls, and nothing but pearls, is a good idea. Oh, mama!

Five Get Over Excited - The Housemartins

Five Get Over Excited - The HousemartinsFive Get Over Excited - The HousemartinsAnother remix provided by AllBum.Art regular Wilf Hooton of Hull, UK. Wilf has provided us with a remix of Five Get Over Excited by The Housemartins. Wilf tells us:

There wasn't even five bods on the original!

But the remix does have five 'bods' and they seem to have gotten so excited that their clothes have fallen off. Thanks Wilf, keep 'em coming. Retro!

Skinny Dippin' - Vengaboys

Skinny Dippin' - VengaboysSkinny Dippin' - VengaboysA user submitted entry from Pim Weermuizje from the Netherlands. Pim has sent us his remix of Skinny Dippin' by Vengaboys. Pim tells us that this was actually a B-side, but was very popular nonetheless. The original cover sees the Vengaboys (of which at least 2 appear to be girls) posing by a swimming pool. The remix shows a guy in the sea and a girl getting undressed, both about to go dippin in a skinny fashion. Thank Pim. Hydration!
