billy joel storm front remixbilly joel storm front 1When we first saw the original album cover artwork for Storm Front by Billy Joel, we had to investigate whether it had any connection with storms. It turns out that the red flag with a black square in it is a nautical flag meaning that storms are on the way. So thumbs up for that. On the remix, though, we find a babe standing outside whilst a snow storm is going on. She is showing us her chilly front, and so we guess this would be an alternative representation of the album's title. Peaky!

alexander o neal my t to you remixalexander o neal my t to you 1Alexander O'Neal sends us My Gift To You, which is very kind of him. On the original album cover artwork we find Mr O'Neal standing outdoors on a snowy street with olde worlde lights shining on the dark, arctic scene. All very good, but where's the gift. It seems that the gift has already been given as on the remix we find a babe opening a present and she seems quite pleased with what is in the box. Perhaps it is some new clothes as all of her old ones appear to have dissolved. Acid!

Rainforest - Paul Hardcastle

paul hardcastle rainforest remixpaul hardcastle rainforest 1Dear Paul Hardcastle,

The next time you release an album and want someone to help with putting the artwork together, please get in touch.

The original cover for your album Rainforest fails on so many fronts, it isn't worth thinking about. Where is the rain, and where is the forest? Unless you class that fuzz of a hairstyle as a forest.

Instead take our remix and think of how cool it would have been if you had thought of putting a babe standing under a big leave in a rainforest on your original artwork.

Yours sincerely,

The AllBum.Art team.

Hounds Of Love - Kate Bush

kate bush hounds of love remixkate bush hounds of love 1Another remix for Kate Bush, this time for her 1985 album Hounds Of Love. On the original album cover artwork we find Ms Bush lying down with two mutts who she seems to like, so nearly full marks for sticking to the brief and showing off the singer and the title of the album. On the remix we find a different babe with two similar looking hounds. She is taking them for a walk, for some reason toplessly. Doggy!

Oranges And Lemons - XTC

xtc oranges and lemons remixxtc oranges and lemons 1An odd thing is happening here. On the original album cover artwork for Oranges And Lemons by XTC there as an almost complete absence of citrus fruit, or indeed fruit of any kind. There are some circular blobs in citrus-based colors but these could easily be paint smudges. On the remix we find lots of oranges, but no lemons. There is, however, a pair of melons which, in case you hadn't noticed, is an anagram of lemons. How sophisticated, fruit anagrams!

Kick - Inxs

inxs kick remixinxs kick 1Another remix for Inxs (which is pronounced 'in excess' rather than 'inks' in case you were wondering). The original artwork for their album Kick is a kind of random jumble of images of the band members - none of them in a kicking posture. On the remix we find a babe who is doing a high kick, in her heels, or maybe she is trying to kick off her heels, we may never know. High!

White Shoes - Emmylou Harris

emmylou harris white shoes remixemmylou harris white shoes 1We give full marks to Emmylou Harris for the cover of her album White Shoes. Why full marks? Because it shows both the artist (Ms Harris) and a pair of white shoes (in this case ones that she is wearing herself). So really our remix is a little pointless, however we had this great picture of some white shoes and though these would make a great replacement for the original artwork. Do you like the picture of the white shoes? Oops, look what's in the mirror. Reflection!

ohio players graduation remixohio players graduation 1A new year, a new month - what comes next? A new week, that's what. And this week we have one of our week-long specials which will be remixing the cover artwork of the Ohio Players. Our first remix is for Graduation. On the original album cover we find a babe wearing an outfit that suggests it is not college she is graduating from. On the remix we find many more babes who appear to have gone to the same college. Whatever they studied, we want to go on that course too. High School!

Merry Merry Christmas - New Kids On The Block

nkotb merry christmas remixnkotb merry christmas 1Another remix for the New Kids On The Block and their album Merry Merry Christmas. So what do new kids look like when having a merry (merry) Christmas? It seems they look like a bunch of drunken idiots, which is pretty much what you would expect from boys. From the girls, something more demure as we find them handing out presents under the tree. Are they merry? Well they're virtually naked, does that count? Bauble!

Long Cold Winter - Cinderella

cinderella long cold winter remixcinderella long cold winter 1It certainly is becoming a Long Cold Winter with so many remixes about freezing cold singles and albums. On the original cover of this album by Cinderella, we are not certain if it is cold and the whole cover represents a snowy white-out, or whether they just got bored. On the remix we find Cinderella herself in an icy cave which is where she hides out in winter. Why she is naked is another question but one we don't feel the need to ask. Icicle!
