What spreads? Butter? Jelly? Rumours? Wildfire? No, it's love... Love Spreads according to The Stone Roses. The thing is that their original artwork provides no indication whatsoever of how this spreading of love is to take place. On the remix we find a babe whose love is spread about as widely as it is possible to go unless she contorts into some bizarre yoga pose more complex than the position she is already holding. Widely!
A noble cause, 'Save The Whales', and one to which band Yes clearly subscribe given the title of their single Don't Kill The Whale. The original cover artwork for their single highlights the plight of these majestic creatures as we find a whale who is thrashing about in the sea. Little changes on the remix as we also find a whale thrashing about in the sea, though we are less concerned about her longevity. Blubber!
Whether you write it Ginger Bread (as 2 words) or Gingerbread (as 1 word) makes little difference to the cover of this single from Frankie Avalon. The original artwork shows Mr Avalon looking rather dashing in his 50s style get-up. On the remix we find a babe whose nickname at school was gingerbread, on account of the color of her hair which is about as gingery as it comes. It is nice of her to show us this but we could have worked that out without her taking all her clothes off. Revealed!
To be fair to Cheesa, we would, under normal circumstances, rate the cover of her single Naked with full points. Not only is the artist on the cover, but she is demonstrating the title of the song by appearing naked. Bravo! What we did on the remix was only to reflect on the name Cheesa, by replacing her with a naked babe. Well she is almost naked, it's just that her extremities have been covered with cheese. Nice!
We so enjoy remixing artwork for singles or albums which have 'naked' in the title. On this occasion it is the turn of Jeanette and her album Naked Truth. The original cover shows the singer sitting quietly in a corner but is she naked? No. And that's the truth! On the remix we find a couple whose nakedness has been discovered, a fact about which they do not appear completely happy. Ain't that the truth! Honestly!
What is The Hardest Button To Button? According to the original cover of the single by The White Stripes, the answer is a button with the number '3' on it, though it does appear that the person pressing the button has a broken finger, which can't make it any easier. On the remix we find a babe who is trying to reach a button of her own and whilst it might be easy for her to button that button, woe betide anyone else that tries, for she will kick you in your own button if you get near. Hard!
This is a famous song in the UK but the original artwork for Don't You Want Me by The Human League is rather lacking in 'want'. On the first remix a girl wrapped in nothing but a towel stands in front of a man, and there is a hint of want in his eyes. On the second remix the focus is on the 'don't' rather than the 'want'. Would you want the woman whose big baggy waist (BBW), fulsome rosey figure and kinky boots are on offer?
We can see where you're going with that Phil. 'You Want Me, Don't You?' is maybe a more accurate title for your rosey figurine who some may want and others maybe would't. Bountiful!
What do you hear? I Hear Music In The Streets, and so, it seems, do Unlimited Touch. That may be the case, but the cover of their single has no indication that they are hearing music, nor of where the street is. On the remix we find a babe dancing in the street, so clearly there must be music around. Why she is doing this wearing nothing but high heels is another question, but one that isn't searching for an immediate answer. Boogie!
Don't play with My Toot Toot, is what Denise Lasalle told us not to do. But given the smile she is exuding on the cover of her single, you are left wondering whether someone hasn't already tweaked her toot toot to her satisfaction (which is why she wishes no further interaction with it). On the remix we find four babes wearing tutus (see what we did there) and they don't look like the kind of babes you would want to mess with. Ballet!
Another remix for Elton John (or Frisbee Headland as he is known here at AllBum.Art for reasons that are too complex to get into). Continuing the 'outer space' theme, we find Rocket Man (I Think It's Going To Be A Long Long Parenthesis). On the original cover we find Mr Dwight looking very monochrome. On the remix we find two babes who appear to have crashed their rocket, no doubt waiting for the rocket man to appear to repair it for them. Spanner!
