It can be disappointing to stumble across the artwork for an album which really doesn't need remixing, as where's the fun in that. So the cover for Boogie Down by Blackwell, which already features two naked babes, really does not require a remix. That doesn't mean we can't try, and on the remix we have increased the number of babes but otherwise left most things unchanged. Is it better? Who cares - we don't. Triple!
So, Paolo Nutini wishes to regale us with his song about New Shoes does he? That's as maybe, but taking a look at the cover artwork of his single, we can't even see if he is wearing shoes, let alone how aged they are. On the remix we find a babe wearing very shiny high heel shoes. Are they new? Well they are certainly shiny, so we will give her the benefit of the doubt. And lots more too. Reflection!
What a Wicked Game you play, that is what Chris Isaak sings. But does the cover artwork for his single explain anything about the nature of this game? It doesn't (other than, perhaps, having made Mr Isaak seem a little glum). The remix shows us more of the game, which appears to involve taping up naked babes in some kind of dungeon area. So the real question is, why would such a game make Mr Isaak appear so glum, as it doesn't have that effect on us. Spanking!
Halloween might be over, so it's time to revive those flagging senses and what reinvigorate the body. In effect you need to Bring Me To Life, which Evanescence can help us with. The thing is, on the original cover, the band member facing us seems more deadly than alive. To be fair, on the remix, the babe facing us also looks less than spritely but the look in her eyes brings certain parts of the male anatomy to life, without a doubt. Viagra!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1980s, Special Remixes, Halloween Hits, Angels & Devils, Busty, Mature, Safe For WorkHalloween is finally upon us, as fiendish ghouls and ghastly fiends take to the streets. The Misfits provide us with today's appropriately titled remix. On the original cover we find the band members looking suitably monochrome and blurred. On the remix we find a Halloween misfit, in the shape of a busty babe in a devil's outfit. Actually, she's not really that much of a misfit as she would not really stand out among all the other outfits that other misfits are likely to wear for parties on this dastardly day. Whooo!
Single Covers, Singles Of The 1970s, Special Remixes, Halloween Hits, Busty, High Heels, Mature, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkAs the devilish day approaches, we continue our series of Halloween remixes with Devil Gate Drive by Suzi Quatro. On the original cover we find Ms Quatro standing on top of three folk who seem to be clawing at here. But where is the gate? It's on the remix of course, where a mature babe has found the gate concerned where the devil has already begun to have his way with her by making all her clothes fall off. Well, all except her high heels for some reason. Cast!
Our short season of Halloween remixes continues with Spiderwebs by No Doubt. On the original cover we find the band members trying to look spooky against the backdrop of a spider's web which has clearly been airbrushed in afterwards. Poor show! On the remix we find a babe who appears to be connected to a metal spiderweb made of chains. Now just how scary must the spider that spun that particular web be? Maybe he was a spiderzoid from Planet M? Steel!
Albums Of The 1980s, Singles Of The 1980s, Halloween Hits, Album Covers, Single Covers, Not Safe For Work, Special RemixesAnother in this week's series of Halloween remixes by none other than David Bowie. His album Scary Monsters and his single Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) makes ideal material for a remix, not least because the original cover isn't particularly scary or creepy at all. On the remix, though, we find a babe being chased by all manner of scary creeps and super monsters and as they have been coming for her, it seems she has found that the best way to fend them off is to pull her panties down. Now in most cases, people use garlic and crosses to fend of monsters but if this works, who are we to intervene. Experiment!
Singles Of The 1990s, Halloween Hits, Remi-XXX-es, Single Covers, Not Safe For Work, Special RemixesOur remix of The Ballad Of Peter Pumpkinhead not only falls into the category of Halloween remixes but also into our XXX-rated remixes. On the original cover we find what is presumably Peter Pumpkinhead (his head does not look particularly pumpkin shaped) being burnt at a stake, no doubt a warlock. On the remix we find a naked babe carving an effigy of Peter Pumpkinhead but given the way in which she is doing it, and the green lighting, we wonder if she is a witch and may also be burned at a stake at some later day. Rescue!
Korn with their single Freak On A Leash is another ideal candidate for a Halloween remix, especially as the original cover which shows no signs of any freaks or any leashes, nor the band, has any real connection with the song. On the remix we find a babe who has been tied down by a large chain (technically not a leash but it will do) and looks pretty freaky to us. It's probably the blue hair that does it, right? Pumpkin!
