Being Left Outside Alone must be an occupational hazard for Anastacia. How do we know this? On the original single front cover artwork she is kneeling down by a window and a radiator, which is left to the outside (to the right is further inside), and she is alone. On the remix is a babe who went to the left and is sitting outside by a river, and she is alone. She is also alone from a clothing perspective, somewhat alone being only with her high heel shoes. A loan!
When you are Standing Outside The Fire, would you expect to see Garth Brooks there in his red chess-board shirt and cowboy hat? Possibly, but on the original single front cover artwork there is no sign of the fire to which the song's title alludes. On the remix we find two babes who are standing outside a fire, which is the safest place to be as they would get burned if they were standing inside the fire, especially as they are wearing no protective clothing. Singe!
Everything But The Girl (or EBTG as they're sometimes monikered) bring us an EP of Covers. The original Covers cover artwork covers the essentials: the name of the band, the title of the EP, and the names of the songs they are covering. On the remix we find a girl who is everything but covered, though she is covered by a small black dress. That about covers it for today's remix, or doesn't cover it if you're the girl on the remixed cover of Covers. Clear!
Grab It For A Second is the title of both a single and an album by Golden Earring. On the original front cover artwork we find a babe looking over her shoulder and she seem to be wearing an earring. She does, though, seem to have her face being grabbed by an other-worldly hand. On the remix is a babe who is also offering part of her body to be grabbed for a second but it is her boob and not her face that is being proffered. Dangle!
We give half points to The Killers for their single Boots, as the original cover artwork does, at least, show a pair of boots. Why they are in a snow-globe is less clear. On the remix, nothing much has changed, except to say that a babe wearing killer boots has joined the picture, and is sitting on a stool blocking the view of the snow-globe. Other than her boots, she seems dressed for inclement weather so she should be alright if it actually begins to snow. Clasp!
There are many possible interpretations of Sky High. It could mean high, in the sky (obviously). Or it could refer to something that is very high, like high heels. On the original cover of the single by Jigsaw we find none of this, just a drawing of the band members and a jigsaw. On the remix we find an airline stewardess, who presumably flies high in the sky. And she is wearing very high heels, which could also be sky high. Double bubble!
What would you expect to see on the front artwork of a single called Sealegs? Perhaps you might expect to see the sea, and possibly a some legs? No, not according to The Shins. What you find on the original cover is some kind of sea-urchin related drawing. On the remix everything returns to normal as you can see the sea, and a pair of legs. Why the legs concerned are lying down with nothing but a pair of stockings to cover them remains a mystery. Shingle!
A refreshing glass of Lemonade, what could be nicer? So it may come as some surprise that on the original album artwork by Beyoncé no such refreshment is visible. Overall, the original feel of the album is anything but refreshing. On the remixed artwork all of this has been resolved, and we find a babe slurping healthily on a glass of pink lemonade which does look like it would refresh even the weariest soul. Suck!
Whilst we're on the subject, here are another two stars who have failed to understand the meaning of the word Naked. Dev (whose song Dancing Shoes is one of the highest ranked remixes according to the AllBum.Art statistics) and Enrique Iglesias also appear fully clothed on the original single front cover artwork. The remix resolves this problem as a mature babe is undressing whilst a guy sits next to her and watches. How she expects to get her pantyhose off without taking her red high heels off is a puzzle we don't get to solve. Sofa!
What would you expect from a single whose name is Naked when it came to designing the cover artwork? Well it seems that Louise didn't think that wearing clothes was in any way contradictory. Seriously? Don't all pop stars want to pose naked on the front cover of their singles? On the remix we find a different babe, in a similar pose, who has also failed to grasp the concept of being naked, as she is still wearing a pair of high heel shoes. Fail!
