Would you believe it, there is another song called Some Girls, this one by self-proclaimed Ultimate Kaos. The cover of their single, however, fails in exactly the same way that yesterday's remix by Racey does - there are no girls on the cover. The remix once again comes to the rescue as we find the band members replaced by some girls. Though the girls may not, ultimately, be kaotic (is that a word?), that should not detract from their suitability to be just some girls. Chaos!
Oh dear. Where do we begin with the cover artwork for Some Girls by Racey? It is another of those 'let's showcase the good looking band members' types of cover (we really should coin a term for such covers) and is lacking in two very important respects:
- It's not in any way racey. And,
- There isn't even one girl, let alone some girls on the cover.
Linda Lewis tells us that Class/Style (I've Got It). Probably, for the 1980s, her denim jacket and pearl necklace and earrings were the height of style and class, but we aren't so sure. On the remix we find a babe in a hat, lacy panties and high heels which we think looks far more classy and stylish, in a minimalist kind of way. Even if it's not class or style, she's certainly got it! Ravishing!
Another remix for Philly soulsters Boyz II Men. So what do the 'boyz' tell us we will find at the End Of The Road? According to their original cover artwork, it will be themselves. OK, for some that may be enough. On the remix, though, we find a babe wearing lots of fishnet and not in the most fetching way. Certainly if you were going along this road, this is where you would most likely stop and turn around. Final!
October may be upon us but that doesn't mean grey days and rainy afternoons all the time, there is still room for the odd Sunny Afternoon and so what better time to remix this cover from The Kinks. On the original artwork is one of those 'let's show off the band' types but is it sunny, or even in the afternoon? It's very unclear. On the remix we find a variety of babes sunning themselves. How do we know this is in the afternoon? It's clear - the position of the sun in the sky. How could you not know that? Sundial!
Shirley Bassey sings about someone for who the phrase I (Who Have Nothing) is apparently applicable. On the original cover artwork we find Ms Bassey but she seems to have quite a lot - a dress, some jewelry, an expensive hairdo. On the remix we find a babe who also seems to have an expensive hairdo, but who otherwise has nothing, including, it would appear, any bosom to speak of. Flatly!
One thing we can say about the original front cover artwork for the single from Hope Of The States is that it does contain the various colors that the title of their song The Red The White The Black The Blue sings about, but in a confused American/British flag fusion kind of way. On the remix we find four babes, each wearing a pair of panties in the appropriate color scheme. The chances of such a random color line-up suggests the band may have even seen this picture before they named their single. Deja Vu!
The Pipettes want to Pull Shapes, or at least that is what the song is called. On the original single front cover artwork, we find the band holding onto the logo for the band's name and though you could kind of call that pulling shapes in a 'vogue' kind of way, there's not much pulling going on. On the remix there are also three babes but they are making a far bigger effort to pull some crazy shapes with the added bonus that they are doing it in the nude. Posers!
Higher, is where The Saturdays Featuring Flo Rida are telling us to go. The main thing that is higher on the original single cover artwork is the heels on the two babes in the middle and the babe second from right who seems to have jumped into the air. On the remix we find a babe swinging on, now what do you call them, oh yes, a swing. The breeze seems to have blown most of her clothes off, though she does seem to have gotten quite high. Uplifting!
This song by Peters & Lee is meant to greet us with a Welcome Home. On the original single front cover artwork the two band members are hugging and although this is quite welcoming, there's no home. On the remix, a woman is standing by the front door of her house waiting to welcome home her man in a most welcoming fashion, which is to say naked other than some stockings. Greetings!
