After all those ghouls and ghosts, the band chose to illustrate being for the dead on their original single front cover artwork by having a woman (or is it a doll) in a long dress. On the remix, is a babe who is definitely for the dead, which she illustrates by hanging around naked in a graveyard (other than her black high heels, in lieu of a black tie no doubt). Fallen!
Brenda Lee perhaps most famous for her Christmas songs, brings us this Halloween Hit entitled Let's Jump The Broomstick. On the original single front cover artwork, we just see Ms Lee singing into a microphone. On the remix we find a babe who seems to have attempted jumping over a broomstick but has got stuck half way. Either that, or she wasn't trying to jump it at all but is actually a witch who is about to ride away into the sky. That seems less likely as she is not wearing any clothes, but then again perhaps that is how witches dress. Spooky!
What shall we do today, L7? That's a good idea, let's Pretend We're Dead. How do we do that L7? What's that you say? We need to paint pictures of the hands of a skeleton on our calves? That makes very little sense. What about you, AllBum.Art, how do you think we should pretend we're dead? You say we should hang around with a scary looking naked babe in a graveyard? Let me think, which should I do? Maybe the graveyard option would be my preference, but only if the scary looking nude chick is going to hang out there too. Remix!
It's an interesting question, isn't it, How To Be Dead. Let's turn to Snow Patrol for some advice on this. According to the original single front cover artwork, to be dead requires an old chair, a lamp-stand and an old television sitting on a creaky old cabinet, all in an icy mountain pool. It's an interesting take on the notion of being dead, but on the remix, how to be dead is illustrated by a woman wearing a latex dress, lying down in what looks like a coffin. This is a very different view on how to be dead, but maybe more realistic. Gloves!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1970s, Special Remixes, Halloween Hits, Angels & Devils, Safe For WorkDance With The Devil, is what Cozy Powell tells us that we should be doing. On the original single front cover artwork, Mr Powell helps us visualize this by smoking a cigarette in black and white. On the remix we find a devil who is dancing, tempting us to join in. Beware though, because it's know that dancing with the devil can lead to boogieing with Beelzebub and you wouldn't want that now would you? Lucifer!
What, you may be asking yourself, are Cemetery Shoes? Let us turn to the infinite wisdom of Johnny Dowd for an answer this question. If the original album front cover artwork is to be believed, it seems to be something to do with sweeping up leaves in a graveyard with an electric guitar. An alternative view is that of the remixed cover which shows a babe standing in a cemetery in a pair of high heeled shoes and her lingerie. Oh, and with an umbrella for good measure. Those kind of shoes, that is what. Misty!
How often do you live? A famous British secret agent said that you only Live Twice, and it seems that British singer Darius would agree with him. On the original single front cover artwork we find just a picture of the lead singer. No sign of death or resurrection. On the remix we find two babes and a skeleton. Which is living twice is a mystery, but for certain the two babes are living once. Are those real? A different question. Latex!
Time for another Halloween remix what with it being October 31 and all. Tonight could well be The Night You Murdered Love, and that is what ABC sing about. The original cover artwork shows the band members looking very new romantic but still well and truly alive. The remix shows a babe in a graveyard. It is not clear if she is the murderer, or the murdered but she will catch her death of cold either way. Grave!

Single Covers, Singles Of The 1970s, Special Remixes, Halloween Hits, Fantasy & Cosplay, Safe For WorkThe original cover of Killer Queen by British rock megaband Queen is, to put it mildly, lackluster. It just shows the band with floppy 1970s haircuts looking, if anything, bored. The remix shows exactly what it should, a devilishly dastardly queen whose looks could kill, let along her evil magic. Whatever you do, don't drink the glowing purple substance in the wine glass she is holding, that's sure to make her a killer queen for sure.
