When Mariah Carey sings Through The Rain, you can almost sense the raindrops on your back. But when you look at the original single cover artwork you only see Ms Carey, her name, the title of the song and a butterfly. On the remix we find a pert babe who is definitely enjoying herself through the rain, using it, as she seems to be, to take a shower. We kept the butterfly for good measure. Deluge!
Yet another remix for those Swedish songsters ABBA - in fact we have done so many remixes of their cover artwork that we could have dedicated a whole week to them. On the original front cover of When I Kissed The Teacher we find the band members sitting at a dining table enjoying a class of wine with a meal. Where's the teacher? Is this an educational establishment? On the remix we find a situation where poor Jonny is about to kiss his teacher. Why? She is posing naked on her classroom desk. Easy to see how that could happen. Blackboard!
We can fully understand why the Olympic Runners chose to picture Joan Collins on the original front cover of their single The Bitch, it was because Ms Collins was the star of the movie of the same name for which this song was the theme tune. All very sensible. All we have done for the remix is modernize the picture, replacing Ms Collins with a younger babe whose clothing style (all latex and corsets) makes her out to be a twenty-first century bitch. Handy!
Today's remix is for the original cover artwork from the front of Randy Edelman's song Pretty Girls. We will give whoever designed the cover half a point for attempting to show some pretty girls on the original cover. But they are so artistically faded that it's not clear whether they are pretty or not. On the remix we find two pretty girls who have not been faded out in any way and who are standing in front of some pretty scenery too. Bargain!
When Adele sings Make You Feel My Love, we would expect a little more from the original single cover artwork than a picture of the singer looking over her shoulder. What we would expect is someone who had gone to some length to make someone else feel their love, and that appears to be what is happening on the remix. Some granny has dressed in high heels and white stockings and panties and has somehow convinced a younger guy to pull down her panties and take a feel of her love. Persuasive!
The original single cover artwork for I Touch Myself by Divinyls leaves many questions unanswered. Chief among these is whether the babe wearing the fishnet body-suit on the front cover is actually touching anything, let alone herself, as her hands are not visible. On the remix we find a babe who is touching herself though to be fair, she doesn't seem to have found it too exciting as the expression on her face tells of boredom. Maybe that's because she is listening to a dreary song at the same time. Multi-tasking!
We're hearing only sad songs on Radio Africa, at least that is what Latin Quarter tell us. To be fair, we have never listened to Radio Africa as reception at the AllBum.Art offices is generally very poor. The original single cover artwork is also rather poor but the remix improves the reception immensely as we find an African babe who seems to have climbed onto a roof to play with the antennas to get the best reception possible. Signal!
In the 1960s when Bob Azzam E La Sua Orchestra put together the original cover artwork for their single Baby Twist, it must have been quite daring to have had a bikini-clad babe dancing by the sea. All that we have done for the remix is to modernize the outfit being worn by the babe. She is still a babe dancing by the sea but half of her bikini has vanished, as the 50 years since the single was release have passed, perhaps it has just perished. Fade!
