We have to hand it to Roger Waters, the cover of his album The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking ably demonstrates some of the pros. It is, of course, perfectly normal to find a naked babe standing by the side of the street with her thumb out trying to flag down a vehicle to give her a lift. So much so that on the remix we have not really changed anything other than the perspective of the camera. Roll on!
Bob Geldof deserves some points for the original front cover artwork of his album Sex, Age & Death, as it seems to depict someone potentially in the throes of sex. At it is a person, they must have an age, so two out of three. On the remix we find a babe who is in a graveyard and so fulfills the death part. As a person she also has an age, so that's also two out of three. She is sexy, so maybe that makes two and a half out of three. Match AllBum.Art!
Thank 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!
You And Me At Six have both an album and a single entitled Take Off Your Colours (note the cute British spelling!) As it's the sixth of June (the sixth month of the year), we thought it was the ideal date for a remix. The original cover artwork shows some colored powder which has been thrown over a letter 'O'. On the remix is a babe who is undressing. She is already topless, however her panties are multicolored, so to ask her to take off her colors would be a logical next step. Rainbow!
The original single cover artwork for Fix You by Coldplay is, let us be frank about this, clearly in some kind of code. The various colored blocks against a green background do not obviously represent any kind of mending. On the remix is a babe who is obviously skilled in the repair of automobiles, though it may help her to wear more appropriate clothing when delving beneath the hood. Or maybe panties and high heels are all that mechanics of her caliber need. Remedy!
Album Covers, Albums Of The 2000s, Single Covers, Singles Of The 2000s, Fantasy & Cosplay, Safe For WorkShaggy has decided that on the original front cover artwork for his album Hotshot, the best thing to show would be his own face in slightly warm colors such as yellow, orange and red. On the remix we find a babe who is shooting heat from, it would appear, a flame-thrower. We think that this qualifies her as a hot-shot in a far more realistic way than just choosing some warm colors. Pipes!
Charli XCX (which isn't a proper Roman numeral in case you were wondering) indicates that somewhere there should be a Sucker. On the orignal album front cover artwork we find a lollipop, so you can see how that might relate to the title. Now there is, of course, an obvious remix for this but we haven't gone in that direction and instead on the remix we find a babe who has got stuck in a sucker, though why she was hoovering her boobs is anybody's guess. Suction!
According to our list of every single (and album) artist on the AllBum.Art web-site, Status Quo have the highest number of cover artwork remixes. Maybe the titles of their songs are written especially to encourage this. For the album Back To Back, the original album cover shows two articulated lorries next to each other. If trucks had backs, they would be back to back. On the remix two naked babes balance precariously on each other with their backs doing the balancing. Definitely back to back. Front!
'Tis St Patrick's day once again so here is an Irish flavored remix. The original single (and album) cover artwork for Drunken Lullabies from Flogging Molly seems to show an old guy walking down a narrow alleyway. On the remix we find a babe who may or may not be called Molly, but who seems much more in the spirit of the day, wearing her shamrock-themed stockings, panties and braces. Lá fhéile Pádraig sona dhuit!
Some bands provide far more opportunities for remixing their single or album cover artwork than others, either as they are prolific, or that the titles of their songs lend themselves to a good remixing. Being one such band, this is the 8th remix of a song by UB40 on the AllBum.Art web-site. It is not totally clear what the picture on the original cover for Cover Up is meant to be. Possibly a window, possibly chocolate and honey, possibly neither of those. The remix is much clearer, showing a babe who in one sense is not well covered, but in another is doing a good job of covering up. Hands!
