Album Covers, Albums Of The 1990s, Single Covers, Singles Of The 1990s, Outdoors, Wet & Windy, Safe For WorkWhen Vanessa Mae was thinking about what could go on the original cover artwork for both her single and album, both titled Storm, she obviously thought that a picture of her with some red lighting was somehow evocative of bad weather. On the remix is a babe who is actually enduring stormy weather out at sea. She had better be careful as she is naked (at least from the waist upwards) which is not the right clothing for when the weather is inclement. Umbrella!
When ye goo, will ye bring back, a Letter From America. That is what The Proclaimers sing. They illustrate this on the original single front cover artwork with a drawing of a tall man in a derelict warehouse, which must be how they. On the the remix is a babe sitting on a desk with a US flag behind her. Oddly, the nameplate on the desk seems to says 'President', despite the blackboard in the background suggesting that this is a classroom and not the Oval office. Use your imagination as this is a great remix, really good, the best. Trump!
If ever there should be an obvious piece of cover artwork, it's for Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off by Joe Nichols. Surely the cover should show a babe who has been drinking tequila whose clothes have fallen off? No, the original artwork just shows Mr Nichols lounging around. The remix shows a babe... who has been drinking... whose clothes have fallen off. Could it possibly have been any more simple than that? Margarita!
Usher is all Caught Up, poor fella. Then again maybe he isn't that poor given that on the original single front cover artwork, the thing he seems caught up on is a group of sexy dancing girls. On the remix, it seems that one of the girls has caught up her panties on her high heels as she was taking them off. She is ushering in a new era in really obvious and pointless remixes, then again, that is what AllBum.It is all about. Oik!
Where do we begin to describe what is wrong with the original single front cover artwork for Driver's Seat by Sniff 'N' The Tears? There is no seat at all, let alone one which a driver might use. Instead there is a babe in high heels who appears to have shot a man dead with a gun, whilst an angry cat watches. Maybe she will shoot the cat next. On the remix there is simply a babe, climbing into the driver's seat of a car. See how easy this remix stuff is? Stick-shift!
Is he telling the truth when Johan Jones says to the world the I Dig Chicks? If we examine the original single front cover artwork then perhaps we might agree with him, as it shows four chicks of Mr Jones's era being hoisted into the air by a digger. On the remix, little has really changed other than that the babes have been updated and the digger has been replaced by a monster truck. The babes are all wearing cowboy boots which is odd attire for a jazz record, but who are we to argue. Hard hat!
Isn't it obvious that for a single whose title is Breakout, the front artwork of the single should show someone trying to breakout of something or somewhere? Not to Swing Out Sister, who decided that the original cover should show the lead singer winking. Yes, that was winking. On the remix is a babe who is trying to breakout of a prison cell. She has a couple of problems to contend with. Firstly the bars of the cell. And secondly the dog collar around her neck which is chained to the cell wall. Escape!
Whilst we are in a mood for remixes of songs by The Beautiful South, here is You Keep It All In. In a way, the artwork on the original single cover does indicate one way of keeping it all in, which is to put a tree-lined fence around a field. That would certainly keep large animals in. On the remix is a different way of keeping it all in, which is to use a bikini to hold in a wholesome bust. Actually, the bust is so wholesome that the bikini isn't doing that great a job of keeping it in. Maybe the trees would have been better. Droop!
It's as Good As Gold, the original front cover artwork for this single by The Beautiful South, that is. And by good as gold, what they seem to mean is a man in a blue suit and black hat standing in a heart shape with hundreds of mini Jesus's filling the heart. On the remix, good as gold has been represented by a good looking babe who is not just wearing gold shoes, but has painted her whole body gold as well. We can tell it is her whole body as she isn't wearing any gold clothes to cover it. Sliver!
A similar picture and theme as yesterday's remix. The original single front cover artwork for Breaking Ties by Above And Beyond Presents Oceanlab desperately needs remixing as all it shows is the name of the artist and the title of the song. The remix shows a babe who has ties on the back of her high heel shoes, and they may have been broken as she seems to be tying them back together again, but that is a different song. Hopefully when she has fixed her broken ties, she will be able to go walking away, but that is yet another different song. Sink!
