What were The Shadows thinking about when they put the artwork together for the front cover of their album Reflection? Oddly, it is an electric guitar whose facade has been distorted by the waves of what appears to be a swimming pool. But it's not a reflection, is it? It's a distortion. On the remix is a babe wearing little other than her lingerie, whose body is being reflected in a mirror. There's a reflection of her, not a distortion. But there's no shadow, so it's not a perfect solution. La La Land.
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!
Where do we begin to describe what is wrong with the original single front cover artwork for Driver's Seat by Sniff 'N' The Tears? There is no seat at all, let alone one which a driver might use. Instead there is a babe in high heels who appears to have shot a man dead with a gun, whilst an angry cat watches. Maybe she will shoot the cat next. On the remix there is simply a babe, climbing into the driver's seat of a car. See how easy this remix stuff is? Stick-shift!
It's always a special moment when it Feels Just Like It Should, so Jamiroquai should be happy. On the original single front cover artwork, however, it just a piece of broken glass, and a drawing of a man wearing a horny hat. On the remix are two horny but hatless babes, and one is checking how the other one feels. Hopefully it feels just like it should, otherwise this would not make a good picture for the remix. At least we can say with some certainty, it looks just like it should. Sensitive!
With the name of a song and an album by Kenny Chesney which goes No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems, then the original front cover artwork misses the boat by a county mile as Mr Chesney can clearly be seen on it wearing a shirt. Or a T-shirt at least. On the remix is a babe who is not definitely not wearing a shirt. Whether she is wearing shoes we don't know, because her legs are cut out of the picture. No problems there, are there, then? Torso!
There are two things which could be used to remix Go Go Dancer by The Wedding Present. Firstly, the remix could be based on the name of the song and we could have replaced the blue number two on the cover with a babe dancing. Alternatively, it could be based around the idea of a wedding present, such as a set of dishes or a toaster. Instead we decided to go with the kind of present you might wish for at one of a go go dancer, or at least the kind of wedding present that the groom might wish for. White!
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!
Although the front cover artwork for Mya's single says the title of the song is Case Of The Ex, the full title is Case Of The Ex (Whatcha Gonna Do), got that? And how's about that trendy dash above the letter 'y', to just make the picture of the singer zing with ex-case sparkle? On the remix is a babe kneeling down by a case. Is it her ex's case? Possibly, as she seems to be wearing what's left of a bride's outfit. Maybe the dress is in the case, which is what the ex is all about. Gloves!

Here are Peabo Bryson And Roberta Flack and Tonight I (or they) Celebrate My (or their) Love for you (or maybe for each other?) At least on the original single front cover artwork, they do seem to be enjoying each other's company. On the remix we find a bride, dressed in white, who seems to be ready to celebrate her love in the age honored fashion of singing this old 80s song while holding a bunch of flowers. Rose!
Albums Of The 1980s, Singles Of The 1980s, Album Covers, Single Covers, Safe For Work, Mature, LingerieStrictly Business is both an album and a single by EPMD. The original cover artwork shows the two band members lazing about in their recording studio. A nice touch is that they are wearing matching black and white sweat-shirts. The remix is much more business-like, as we find a mature babe in the office with sales charts behind her. It looks as if sales are doing badly, so she has resorted to wearing only lingerie as an encouragement to buy whatever it is they are selling. Sold!
