It's time to Get Wild, at least according to The NPG (sometimes known as The New Power Generation) it is. The original single front cover artwork may be classed as slightly wild if you consider just putting the title of the track in some vaguely African looking colors. On the remix is a babe who has gone for a walk in the countryside, into the wilderness. She also seems like a bit of a wild babe given that she is flashing her fanny at us through her red fishnet pantyhose. All very wild, and definitely better than just coloring some letters in. Forest!
Another remix for the oddly named Talla 2XLC, whatever that means. There is also little to no meaning of the original single front cover artwork, other than showing the crazy artist's name, and the title of the track, together with a web-site address which takes you to a Techno club. On the remix is a babe who truly shines, sitting on a stool in her shiny latex outfit and shiny patent heels. Though she's only just in her shiny outfit - had she been a little bit bigger, her outlook may not have been quite so glossy. Lustrous!
She's a Killer. That, at least, is what Adamski claims. The claim is made against a backdrop of a dog, angled at 45 degrees to the vertical (and to the horizontal as it goes) and some squashed text naming the artist and the title of the track. That is the original single front cover artwork. On the remix is a babe who is a killer for real. She is lethal with her gun, and a killer looker too. Don't get distracted, as if you do, you're gonna die at her hands. Painful!
The Lostprophets thought that a good way to illustrate the name of their song, Rooftops (A Liberation Broadcast) would be to show what looks like a zoomed-in view of some kind of grey-scale heraldic shield. Where are the rooftops and what about the broadcasting? On the remix an angel of a babe is standing on a rooftop, with red wings which is odd, as the picture is in black and white. She had better hope it doesn't get too windy, as she might be blown off. Then again, if she is a real angel, she would just flap her wings and fly. Scarlet!
What could better illustrate Karma Police, than a family queuing up to enter a red circular portal of some kind in which, it would appear, they are likely to fade to red and rotated 90 degrees clockwise? There can be no doubt that this was the thinking behind the original single front cover artwork by Radiohead. The remix is far more straightforward and just shows a busty police officer in her everyday uniform. Well perhaps not every day, just at the weekend. Aroma pickle!
The So Solid Crew have got an invitation, they are asking that we should Ride Wid Us. Sadly, we have no idea what a Wid is and the original single front cover artwork does not help, as it shows a series of frames from what looks like a B-movie horror film (or maybe it was the song's pop video). On the remix is a babe who is sitting on a bicycle of some kind. So is that what a Wid is? Now it all makes sense, though it might be better if the song had been called Ride A Wid With Us. Patois!
Our previous White Stripes remix was one of the most popular on the web-site with a rating of over 4 (click on the stars below to join the fun rating the remixes). The original front cover artwork for Fell In Love With A Girl seems to illustrate the different parts of the brain, maybe trying to tell a story about how falling in love works from a cerebral perspective. On the remix is a babe who it would be easy to fall in love with, as she lounges in nothing but her high heels by a swimming pool, and who is also lying underneath a palm branch casting shadows and leaving white stripes all over her body. 4.5 out of 5 for this one? Score!

Minimalistix were obviously having a bit of an 'off day' when they put together the original front cover artwork for their single Close Cover, as they just adopted some odd picture of piano keys and some blue blobs that their record company no doubt forced upon them. The remix might have been more appropriate (or maybe less so), as it shows a babe who is covering her chest with her blue latex colored hands. The way the picture has been cut, it is close to showing whether or not she has blue latex panties on. It is definitely a combination of close and cover. Platforms!
She's So Unusual, Cyndi Lauper, that is. Of that there could be little doubt. As if to illustrate her unusualness, on the original album cover artwork we can see Ms Lauper kicking off her heels and dancing in one of her crazy dresses. On the remix is a babe who is, potentially, more unusual than that. She is wearing blue scales, is carrying a ray gun and has two antennae on her head. From this angle, we can only hope that she is a she, but we know that she is so unusual. Cadet!
It's time for another remix for Irish idols U2 and today we look at their 2009 single Get On Your Boots. On the original cover artwork you will see the band members sitting on what appear to be red leather airport waiting room chairs. Maybe they have an odd definition of boots. On the remix is a babe who is wearing a very fetching pair of boots but nothing else. When someone instructed her to get her boots on, they must have left out any additional information on what else she was meant to wear. Buckle!
