Danger, Danger Will Robinson. Oops, not not that one. Try Danger, Danger High Voltage, for that is what Electric Six are warning us about. The original single and album cover does this through the extensive use of the color orange, including a moody orange glitter-ball. The remixed artwork does this through placing a topless babe next to a danger sign at an electricity sub-station. Which has the highest danger factor is for you to decide. Tangerine!
Just when we thought we couldn't find any more songs about flying, Alberta, our resident expert on all things Canada points out Flying by Canadian rock legent Bryan Adams. On the original cover of the groover from Vancouver's single, we find an airborne electric guitar. On the remix, we find two babes waiting patiently for the pilot of their aircraft to arrive, so that they can get airborne and do some flying. Quite why they are both naked and wearing frizzy wigs is less clear. Maybe they misinterpreted the pilot's specification for their safety gear? Landing strip!
Turn It Around, the instructions from 4 Strings are clear enough. The original single artwork though, is not so clear. What is 'it' that should be turned around, and why? The lead singer loping about on the cover gives no clues. On the remix a babe is climbing some stairs and to save her skirt getting caught around her knees, she is lifting it up and in the process, revealing her ass to those standing behind her. If she turned around, 'it' may be revealed. Staircase!
Let's go and join the Four Tops whilst they are Standing In The Shadows Of Love. More specifically standing against a white background is what you would do if you were using the original single front cover artwork as your guide. On the remix is a babe who is standing in the shadows at night and given that she is wearing stockings and high heels, it would be reasonable to assume that she has love on her mind. So, standing (correct) in the shadows (yes) of love (probably). Better!
The question of the moment is Why Did You Do It? And the answer provided by Stretch on the original single front cover artwork is confusing in that there seems to be a yellow-faced man staring at a couple kissing. Maybe he is angry at what they are doing and would ask the question about why they did it when they stopped. On the remix is a babe taking off her panties outdoors. Perhaps she had a good reason for doing it, we may never find out. Mystery!
It is notable on the original single front cover artwork for Meet Me On The Corner by Lindisfarne the band are standing around on a street but the way the shot is taken, it is not at all obvious that they are on a street corner. Maybe the street corner is to the right of the shop they are leaning against, then again maybe not. On the remix we find a babe who is definitely more inviting and if you look carefully, you will see that just behind her is the corner of the street. This remix is the right angle. Get it?
Poor Fleetwood Mac. When having a bit of a brainstorm about what to put on the front cover artwork of their single Gpysy, they could arrive at nothing more exciting than two people dancing, and one looking on jealously. It's a good job that AllBum.Art is here to help. On the remixed cover is a gypsy. We know that she is a gypsy because of the bandana she is wearing and her oversized earrings. Everyone knows those are gypsy hallmarks, right? Hoopy!
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!
The Mary Jane Girls are All Four You and on the original album cover artwork all four of them are visible and are posing for you. Thumbs up here for their effort. On the remix are four different babes who are not only for you, but are showing their love four you by making a heart shape with their arms and their hands. Oh, and they're doing it whilst naked, what could express their love for four you too. Beach!
Hey there P. J. Proby, what were you proposing when you sang Hold Me? Was it that people should somehow hold onto him, as that is the only thing that you will find on the original single front cover artwork. On the remix is a busty babe who is holding onto one of her boobs. Whether she is asking you to hold her, or whether she has already followed the instructions of Mr Proby and is holding herself is not clear which on the one hand is a shame, but on the other hand is her boob. Forest!
