Go on, go on, Dare Me. Is that what the Pointer Sisters were trying to say on the original front cover artwork for their single? Maybe it is, but what they were being dared to do is not clear, other than perhaps look a little scary. On the remix we find a babe who has clearly been dared, on this occasion to flash her bosoms whilst standing in front of some kind of artificial waterfall. How daring of her. Gambler!
Just what or who is Shakin' Stevens looking at on the original single front cover artwork of You Drive Me Crazy? Something must be bringing him mayhem, but other than a slight squint to his look, we don't know what it can be. On the remix we find what it might have been: a babe, driving his car, in nothing but her g-string. That would be enough to drive him crazy in more way than one. Freeway!
You've got to be Cruel To Be Kind, according to Nick Lowe. So here we go, being kind about the original single front cover artwork: Other than showing Mr Lowe holding his head in pain, there's nothing cruel or kind about it. It stinks! On the remix we find a babe who has been shackled to a metal fence and left out in the elements. That's very kind of someone to be so cruel don't you think? Tautology.
Yummy, Yummy, Yummy, I've got love in my tummy. Do rhymes come any more farcical than that? Not if you're Ohio Express. How do they choose to illustrate this yumminess on the original single front cover artwork? The simple answer is that they don't. They just have the name of the band and the title of the song repeated three times in yellow, red and pink. On the remix are three beach babes, wearing yellow, red and pink bikinis. Oops, the babe in the red bikini has lost hers. Yummy!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1990s, Special Remixes, Remi-XXX-es, High Heels, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkEcho And The Bunnymen are singing about oxidized metal on their single Rust, but the cover of the single shows no evidence of any metal, let alone any which is rotting away. Instead we find the lead singer in a sad pose. On the much more happy remix, we find a smiling babe who is squatting on some rusty metal. She had better be careful not to cut herself on any sharp edges, especially as she has chosen to bend down on the aforementioned rusty metal in nothing but her stripper heels. Squat!
So, what have we here? Tina Turner and Rod Stewart no less. And what is it that Ms Turner and Mr Stewart are telling us? Why, It Takes Two, no less, no more. It is nice of them to give us this advice but the bigger question is what it is that it is that takes two. The remix offers us one possible suggestion as there is a babe who is holding not one, but two in her hands. Can she take them? That is a question best left in private. Cock!
Aha, so when Billie Myers tells us to Kiss The Rain, what she means it that we should stand against a wall with a dim blue-grey light casting darkening shadows. Great, if that's your thing. For us, however, we would be much more inclined to kiss the aforementioned rain if there was something worth getting wet for, such a cute busty babe. Well, would you credit it, that's exactly what you can find in the remix. Amazing how often that happens, isn't it? Precipitate!
The original cover artwork for Dove (I'll Be Loving You) by Moony leaves so many questions unanswered that it may as well be blank, except for the title of the song and the artist. Oh, wait a cotton-picking minute, it is blank other than the title of the song and the artist (and a few of the record company's logos). So it's a good job there's a remix that tells more of who the dove is and why we should be loving her, isn't it. Phew!
Album Covers, Albums Of The 1970s, Special Remixes, Remi-XXX-es, High Heels, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkThe rexponse to the firxt couple of our 'Remi-XXX-es' has been mixxxed. Some liked the more risqué approach, others thought that it was a step too far. Let's try a xecond one and let us know whether you thinx these should continue or cease. It's the turn of The Whispers and their album Open Up Your Love. On the original cover we find a babe standing in nothing but high heels, yet her love is not visible, never mind open. In the remix a similar babe is squatting down for us but her love is clearly open for all to see. Wild!
Have you ever heard of Frente? No, nor had we, but we're always keen to find songs where we can remix the cover artwork to show babes dressed as an angel, so Ordinary Angels by Frente meets our exacting criteria. To be fair to the band, the original cover does show a very ordinary angel and all we have done in the remix is find an alternatively ordinary angel, but wearing fewer clothes. Then again, that's what we do best at AllBum.Art. Wings!
