Ah yes, Candy. Nothing says candy as much as black and white photo of Paulo Nutini holding a guitar and sitting in front of some old buildings. At least that's what those who designed the original single cover artwork thought. On the remix is a happy. smiling blonde babe wearing a bikini made of candy. Now isn't that both far simpler, and much more to the point? Sweets!
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!
Whilst we're in the mood for remixing cover artwork by ABC, it's time to get The Look Of Love. On the original we find the band members (this seems to be a common theme with this band) with their instruments. On the remix we find a babe who just has that look of love in her eyes. If it isn't the look of love that she has, then maybe it is some other kind of look, but does it really matter? Cashmere!
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!
There is a certain irony about INXS singing about a Suicide Blonde, given the tragic and untimely demise of the band's lead singer. However, none of that changes the remixability of the single artwork which is apt for a bit of clarification. This is because on the original cover, three babes are dancing in a James Bond-esque style but given the odd shading it is not clear if they are blonde or not. On the remix is a blonde babe who is more of a homicide blonde. Bang!

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.
Today we find East 17 and they are Deep. How deep you might be wondering. Well, if the original single front cover artwork is anything to go by, it is deep down some back alleyway. On the remix is a babe who, by her costume, appears to me a maid. The presence of a spray bottle on the window, and broom handle, is also perhaps evidence of this. And the fact that the broom handle is heading deep inside her back alleyway ties in with the original single cover. Handler!
This is the fifth remix for Scottish band Simple Minds and it is for their song Waterfront. On the original single front cover artwork, we can see a lake, which is a good start, but there is no front of any discernible kind. On the remix we find a babe standing right next to the water, on the waterfront. She has some front too, standing there in nothing but her high heels. And as she is nearly naked, we can see her front too. Mouth watering!
Could anyone be under any misapprehensions at all about what it is that Rodney Carrington wishes to be shown, when he sings Show Them To Me, as the original cover artwork features Mr Carrington resting his weary soul against the bra of an oversized babe. On the remix, a different babe has succumbed to Mr Carrington's wishes and has removed her bra to show 'them' to him, and to the rest of the world. Buckle!
