Another remix for Ms Fenty, who is perhaps better known as Rihanna (her middle name, in case you didn't know). On the original front cover artwork of her single Unfaithful, we find Ms Fenty sitting by a rock in ripped jeans. No evidence there of any unfaithfulness. On the remix we find a babe standing in a church wearing clothes that are definitely not faithful. Then again, flagellation is a religious activity, so perhaps she isn't that unfaithfully dressed after all. Pray!
There are so many opportunities for a decent single front cover when your song is called Angry Chair and the band is called Alice In Chains. It is therefore with some significant surprise that the original artwork shows on chair, no chains and instead has a bearded dude lying down over a picture of a snake. On the remix we find a largely naked babe, other than for her stockings and heels, sitting on a chair. In front of her is another chair which is not being sat upon, and which is very angry as he wanted the babe to sit on him instead. Wooden!
Who lives on Sun Street? Why, it's none other than Katrina And The Waves. Sadly, the original single front cover artwork does not show us what life on sun street is like, as all we can see are the band members. On the remix, though, we find a babe who is walking along a sunny street. It doesn't look as if anyone lives on that particular stretch of road, which might be as well, given that her dress seems to be far too short for her. A good job that it is sunny too, as otherwise, wearing that dress, she would catch a chill. Blonde!
What can be said about the original single front cover artwork of Double Dutch by The Fatback Band? You can see the band standing around looking, well, just looking actually. There's no sign of anything Dutch, or why it might be double. No windmills or Edam cheese. On the remix we find two babes sitting on a bench. We are reliably informed that the bench is in Amsterdam, and the babes are Dutch. As there are two of them, we make that double Dutch. Duchesses?
Mary MacGregor is Torn Between Two Lovers which sounds as if it could be quite painful. It is not clear from the original single front cover artwork whether she is being torn at that exact moment, and her facial expression does not indicate whether she is in in pain or not. On the remix we find a babe between two dudes, one of who is trying to tear off her panties. She is being torn between two lovers! Is she in pain? It doesn't look like it from the smile on her face. Breaking point!
Probably best known for their single Christmas Wrapping, The Waitresses did have other hits including I Know What Boys Like. Based on the original single front cover artwork, what boys like is a black and white photograph of themselves on a cheap plastic table cloth. The remix seems more realistic as a babe who really knows what boys like demonstrates her logic by sitting on a chair, naked other than her high heels. Positioning!
Read All About It, that is one option presented by Professor Green Featuring Emeli Sandé. Alternatively, you may wish to use your eyes and take a look at the original single front cover artwork which shows a boy in a dark hallway standing in-front of a door that is ajar. On the remix, we can both read and see all about it as there is a babe standing in a library reading a book. She is wearing a pink hat... and nothing else. Never have books been quite so interesting. Bibliotheque!
Today's question is being posed by Take That. The question is Why Can't I Wake Up With You? The original single front cover artwork doesn't explain why they are asking this question, however the prerequisite of waking up with someone is going to sleep with them, and the band members don't look very sleepy. On the remix we find a babe lying on her bed. Maybe she is about to go to sleep. Maybe she has just woken up. She does not seem to be with anyone. Perhaps she is waiting for one of the band members. Snooze!
Hey, Gary Barlow, Let Me Go. That is what the fans are screaming. The original front cover artwork shows Mr Barlow sitting at a piano, he doesn't appear to be restricting anyone's movement in a way that would stop them from going wherever it is they wish to go. On the remix we find a babe, but no Mr Barlow, however she is chained up and unable to go somewhere, or anywhere. She is singing let me go, and hoping that Mr Barlow is going to rescue her. That depends on whether he likes women who are chained up. Go!
A Secret Love, that is what Bee Gees are singing about. They illustrate this on the original single front cover artwork by showing a tall, thin babe in a red dress standing on what might be a beach, or may be a snowy field. On the remix, on the other hand, we find a babe, also in red, and her lover who looks as if they have been caught out, and that their love should be far more secret than it is. The look on the babe's face certainly suggests that any secrecy that she might have wanted to maintain, has been broken. Surprise!
