Love Song For A Vampire was written by Annie Lennox (better known as the lead singer of electropopsters Eurythmics for the film Dracula. To be fair, the cover does a reasonable job, showing, as it does, Ms Lennox in vampy make-up. We thought we could do better though and have replaced Ms Lennox with a modern take on Lucy Westenra. Don't know who she is? Time to brush up on your classic literature!
How do we keep up the dismal quality that is the hallmark of this web-site? By finding weird pictures of cute babes and then infusing them with a special kind of blurriness and then adding them, sub-consciously into the cover of a track. That's how this one came about. Pulling Mussels (From The Shell), blurred with a picture of a naked babe holding that shell, all Squeezed together in 600 by 600 pixels. Let's just say 'Blantyre' and leave it at that for now...
This 1996 song from British band Oasis has probably one of the worst covers that we at AllBum.Art have seen. Are the band members there? No. Is there anything that relates to the title of the song, like a back, or someone who is angry? No. Damn good job that we go our hands on it then and came up with this remix in which a babe is looking back and not doing so in anger, but more a kind of pensive melancholy that is just highly appropriate for the song.
Another cover art remix prompted by a picture rather than by the song. What could be more normal than a woman standing at a Bus Stop with her panties around her ankles? Where on earth did these pinup artists get their ideas. Regardless, it's a good chance for a remix of a golden oldie, in this case a song from The Hollies whose original cover was OK but has no bus stop in it, natch.
Despite not being a big hit in the charts, Somebody Else's Guy by Jocelyn Brown is one of those songs you just can't help bobbing along to. The remix of the cover is just simply pulling open the blinds of the original cover to reveal the girl behind. With the blinds open we can see that she is rather hot, though her temperature will no doubt be lowered by the sparsity of clothing that she's wearing.
One of those 1970s soul classics, Float On by The semi-eponymous Floaters has a really terrible cover. That's not to say that a picture of the band isn't a credible attempt, but boys, please, the name of the band and the name of the song involve floating, so where's the floatiness? The answer is in the remix where we see a hot chick floating on a swimming pool. The odd thing is that she has left her heels on. Float on...
Whilst we are on a transport theme, what about moving from trains to planes. Hey presto! Here is a remix of the 2004 single from British boy band Busted. The original cover of Air Hostess clearly demonstrates that the boys in the band find the idea of air hostesses sexy. Our remix has just turned the 'sexy' up to 11 and replaced the hostess that the boys were staring at, with the same girl but later in the flight. Looks like their game of strip poker paid off!
Here at AllBum.Art we are rather fond of pictures of naked chicks in and around train tracks (the reasons for which are unknown but might perhaps be to do with how boring rail journeys generally are). Anyhow, what better than to add another remix to the list and this time an obscure 1990s single from The KLF and their single Last Train To Trancentral. Where Trancentral is remains a mystery but if the remixed cover is anything to go by, then ticket sales for the last train will be brisk.
According to this 1980s new wave single from Spandau Ballet, we made our love on wasteland, and Through The Barricades (that's what the chorus says anyhow). But the cover shows nothing of this at all. Now it does score some points because it has a picture of the band on it, but shows nothing of the aforementioned barricades. The remix is much more revealing, in many ways. As we can see the wasteland, the barricades and exactly why they would want to make their love there when there must have been more comfortable locations available.
Time for the remix of cover art that is just screaming for one. This 1981 single from the J Geils Band has on its cover a picture which is presumably meant to reflect what represented a centerfold in the 80s, though actually a quick Goggle[sic] search for 80s centerfolds reveals a lot more than the cover does! So the cover has been remixed to put a 2010s centerfold on the cover. And for the 2010s the centerfold we have selected is pretty tame, and pretty. Much like the 80s ones weren't as well!
