A quick look at the search page of the AllBum.Art web-site will show that angels are one of the most searched for types of content. So here is another to add to the results. Today it is Heaven by Sarah Washington. The original single front cover artwork has a wrist-watch on it. Maybe that is heaven for some people, but for us it's definitely an angelic babe and that is what the remix unequivocally provides. Wings!
Nothing beats a good angel-based remix and Angel Of The Morning by Juice Newton (real name Judy and not Juice, obviously) is just such a song. The original single front cover artwork shows Ms Newton looking anything but angelic. And whether it is the morning or not is debatable. On the remix an angel is sitting on a rock warming herself in the morning sun. She will need to, as other than her wings, she hasn't got much to keep her warm. Lizard!
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!
The Lostprophets thought that a good way to illustrate the name of their song, Rooftops (A Liberation Broadcast) would be to show what looks like a zoomed-in view of some kind of grey-scale heraldic shield. Where are the rooftops and what about the broadcasting? On the remix an angel of a babe is standing on a rooftop, with red wings which is odd, as the picture is in black and white. She had better hope it doesn't get too windy, as she might be blown off. Then again, if she is a real angel, she would just flap her wings and fly. Scarlet!
If there's one thing we've learnt, here at AllBum.Art it's that people seem to really like remixes that involve an angel, as it is the most searched-for term on the whole web-site. Today, Jon Secada brings us his take on an Angel by standing in a check jacket against a white background, at least that is what the original front cover of his single shows. On the remix we find a true angel, which we know on account of her having large white wings and matching lingerie (only true angels match their lingerie to their wing color). She seems to be standing in a dirty alleyway with insufficient room to spread her wings. Maybe she needs Mr Secada's help to get free. Resurrection!
Maria McKee makes a big thing, on the original single cover artwork for Show Me Heaven, that the song is taken from the motion picture soundtrack Days Of Thunder. What is less apparent is any sign of heaven. On the remix we find a babe who is showing heaven in her own way. That way is by wearing a halo and standing around in a skimpy, and even in places see-through, outfit that kind of has angel wings. Heavenly!

Level 42 have Heaven In My Hands, or presumably their hands as they have not asked permission to use my hands. The original single front cover artwork shows a number of satellite dishes in a field of yellow flowers. No hands in sight, and only heaven if you are a radio astronomer. On the remix we find a man lying on a grave with a winged angel on top of him. He has heaven in his hands, or at least he could do if he moved them about 8 inches higher. Chest!
Nothing beats a good angel remix, and My Special Angel by Malcolm Vaughan is no exception. On the original single cover artwork we find Mr Vaughan looking casually over his shoulder at something but no sign of any angels. On the remix we find a special angel. We know she is special as her wings are black and as everyone knows, only fallen angels have black wings, the rest are white or thereabouts. Soar!
Aaah... One Kiss From Heaven. That is all you need in life. Though, if the original single front cover artwork by Louise is to be believed, the only thing that she is offering is a smouldering look. No kisses, and no heaven. How disappointing. On the remix we find an angel (a popular theme here at AllBum.Art) from whom one kiss would no doubt be satisfactory. Wings!
