Imagine precipitation. Now imagine Wendy Moten is inviting you to Come In Out Of The Rain, which, according to the original single front cover artwork, means sitting down with her and her multicolored jacket. On the remix is a babe who needs to come in out of the rain as she is standing outside in the precipitation by a beach. She is lucky enough to have an umbrella to keep her dry, but she has nothing else to keep her dry. She really should come in out of the rain before she catches a cold. Transparent!
Let It Rain. It's an easy enough instruction from Eliza Doolittle. That being said, on the original single front cover artwork, it simply isn't raining. This is evident as a babe is sitting in the driver's seat of a car with the roof off and she isn't in the slightest bit damp. On the remix we find a babe who for some reason is crawling along the floor, but it is pelting it down with liquid precipitation. It is to be hoped that this is rain, as if she is being soaked in hydrochloric acid she has more problems than her apparent nakedness and needs to cover herself up as soon as possible. Chemistry!
Apparently The Ronettes have been, or are, Walking In The Rain. Somehow, having done so, they have remained completely dry and their beehive hair-dos intact, at least that's how they appear on the original single cove artwork. On the remix is a babe who is walking in the rain. Unlike the band members, she does appear to be soaking wet, and whatever hair-do she had is now ruined. At least she has had the sense to remove her shoes. Or is that nonsense. Clingy!
What aspect of the original front cover artwork for Awfully Deep by Roots Manuva is Awfully Deep? Is it that the courtroom scene pictured, was in a room that is fifteen stories underground. Or is it that the scene is metaphorically deep in some psychological way? Meh. The remix simply shows a babe swimming underwater without a bikini or any breathing equipment. This is just as deep. Plunge!
Islands In The Stream, that is what we are. But the original front cover artwork for this single by Kenny Rogers And Dolly Parton tells us nothing more than that both artists can smile. Where's the stream, and what about the islands? On the remix we find a babe on an island by some water which could well be a stream. It's raining and she is using a large leaf as an umbrella. Dry!
It 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!
Yet another remix for the band Level 42. Today it is the turn of their single Hot Water. On the original front cover artwork is nothing other than the name of the band, and the title of the song. There is no indication of what the hot water might be. On the remix we find a babe showering outdoors. There is definitely water involved, but is the water hot, or is the temperature hot and the water cold. Just to ensure that there is at least some heat involved, the babe is hot, so it doesn't really matter whether the water is hot or not. Phew!
According to Wet Wet Wet, when they were Wishing I Was Lucky, the first thing that sprung to their mind when putting together the original single front cover artwork was a dark city street, with pictures of the band members strewn on a dirty wall in a haphazard fashion. On the remixed artwork, we find that wishing you are lucky brings you a naked babe showering in a waterfall. Presumably she is wet, though whether she is triply wet is difficult to determine from a distance. Soaking!
You may have noticed that the guys here at AllBum.Art have a number of favorite topics when it comes to remixing single and album artwork, in particular angels, and people caught in the rain. So they jumped at the chance to remix Walking In The Rain by Modern Romance (and not because it had an angel in it!) On the original cover, there is no evidence of any walking, but they have tipped their hat at the rain with an umbrella in the background. On the remix we find a babe walking in the rain. Could it be any more straightforward than that? Splash!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 2000s, Special Remixes, Halloween Hits, Fantasy & Cosplay, Wet & Windy, Safe For WorkIt is feasible, we suppose, that when La Roux put together the original single cover artwork for In For The Kill, they thought that some dry ice and an aging sports car would suffice to give the impression of menace. On the remix we find a babe who is far less subtle in her murderous intentions as she is pointing a great big gun at someone or something, thankfully not at us. Why it is raining purple raindrops is not clear, perhaps this is on another planet. Alien!
