We have to give credit where it's due to Altered Images. The original album front cover artwork for Pinky Blue, other than the small picture of the band in the bottom right hand corner (having pink and blue confetti dropped on them), is very pink, and blue. This color scheme has been carried over to the remix where we see a babe wearing a mask with ears, who is nothing if not very pink and very blue, with a little purple here and there for good measure. She may also have her bra on back to front. Crimson!
What would you expect to see on the cover of an album called A Life Of Surprises? According to Prefab Sprout it would be a tiny picture of three people standing next to, or sitting on, a motorbike. Which may be surprising, but not as surprising as the picture on the remixed front cover. The remix shows a guy who is clearly very surprised that the busty woman standing next to him has slipped off her clothes and is showing him her ample bosom. If he has a life of surprises like that, his life must be very interesting. Expert!
Oooh, ooh, take me in your arms and Rock Yo Hips baby. That's not quite what the Crime Mob sing as they sit or stand against a brick wall on the original single front cover artwork. They seem quite stationary which doesn't help understand how yo hips should be rocking. On the remix, two big babes are rocking their bikinis and maybe their hips too, though as this is a picture and not a video, it's difficult to know for sure what amount of rock is being applied. Sticky!
Where The Hood At? That is the question which DMX is asking. The original single front cover artwork shows Mr Simmons (for that is his name) leaning out of a window, looking for hood. The remix is maybe what he was looking for, as it's none other than Red Riding Hood, who is better known to her friends as hood. And what is it that she is wearing? Why, a hood of course, but very little else. It must have been a hot day in the forest. What big eyes you have...
Hitch-hiking always makes a good topic for a remix here at AllBum.It. Green Day sing on this topic on their single Hitchin' A Ride. On the original cover artwork the three members are standing on a pebble strewn road. On the remix, four babes are standing on a similarly pebbly road, but with their thumbs out trying to hitch a ride. They seem to have decided that being topless might increase their chances of being picked up. They probably have that right. Denim!
Geri (Halliwell as she was then known) a former member of the Spice Girls is telling us to Ride It. This is clearly illustrated on the original single front cover artwork by Ms Halliwell sitting down in a black dress with lots of lens flare. On the remix we can see a babe in red lipstick and red high heels (but little else) who has been given a small red tricycle and told to ride it. It's clearly too small for her, but she isn't giving up. Accelerate!
What is Underneath It All? That is the question that we find ourselves asking when we look at the original single front cover artwork by No Doubt. Their answer seems to be that what is underneath it all is Gwen Stefani and a ghetto-blaster. On the remix we find a babe standing in her heels and a see-through dress, so that we can see what is underneath it all. Oops, would you know it, she might not be quite the babe you thought she was underneath it all. Review!
Here comes Missy Elliott and her album Under Construction. The original front cover artwork shows Ms Elliott sitting by a wall with what, in the 1980s, would have been known as a ghetto-blaster. There is no sign of any construction. On the remix are three mature women standing on a building site, wearing (well, almost wearing) protective clothing. It is a wonder that any construction would take place with them standing around, as they would be very distracting. Dig!
The Purple People Eater is now a largely forgotten song by Sheb Wooley. Perhaps this is because the original front cover artwork for the single shows a weird creature with a musical pipe coming from his head. On the remix is a babe wearing largely purple colored clothes. Whether she eats people or not is uncertain, perhaps she does this in a shed, with the singer Sheb, and a dog called Shep. She doesn't seem shey, oops, we mean shy. Woolen!
There are literally millions of apples in the world, but Lloyd Banks has chosen a Rotten Apple. The original album cover artwork makes this very clear by illustrating, erm, err, uh... Well it doesn't does it? The remix shows a babe who is using the largest rotten apple in existence, that of a computer. Why she is using it without any clothes on is unclear, perhaps that is why it ended up being rotten in the first place, or maybe not. Slink!
