Is it Just Another New Years Eve? Barry Manilow seems to think so, but what has his hand scrawled picture got to tell us about what New Years Eve holds this year? Thankfully the remix of the cover artwork fixes this problem as we find that the New Years Eve party is being attended by four blonde babes drinking champagne and who, for some mysterious reason, appear to have forgotten the bottom half of their outfits. Happy New Year!

There is no original cover for Back Door Santa by Clarence Carter and so all there is to go on is the paper covering the hole in the middle of the single. On the remix, Santa is covering a very different kind of hole, and we know understand why he is known as Back Door Santa. Merry XXX-mas!

On the original cover, the odd thing, is that the only reference to the holidays is a piece of holly stuck in the bottom right hand corner. Otherwise it could be any Gothic evening of the year. On the remix it's definitely near to Christmas as a babe prepares for the special day by putting her shoes on. She might have remember to put her other clothes on first though. Hat!
There can never, ever, in the history of the world, be a better version of The Carol Of The Bells than that performed by the Swedish Chef of the Muppets. But the Marillion version is OK, if you like that kind of thing. The problem is that the cover artwork lacks any kind of bells. On the remix, we have taken a little poetic liberty and instead of a bell, have used a bauble or 'bore bell' which is just as seasonal and far more efficacious for the purposes of remixing. Yes, the Holiday season is driving us a little mad. Elbow!
Twiddly diddly dee, it's Lolly and her friend the Rockin' Robin. Twiddly diddly dee, it seems that to represent this seasonal classic, Lolly has decorated her forehead with snowflakes. Twiddly diddly dee, on the remix we find a babe with a red breast, which must mean she is a robin, though it is more usual to spell it robyn if it's a girl. Twiddly diddly dee, that's an improvement and all that remains is to check if she is rockin'. As far as we can tell, she rocks! Twiddly diddly dee!

In a way, cover versions (or versions of a cover) is what AllBum.Art is all about, so it is particularly prescient that today's remix is of a cover version of White Christmas by Darts. Of course we all know it's originally by Bong Crispy which is why, on the original cover of the cover version, the band are looking a little sad. Probably. On the remix we just find a babe who is wearing white at Christmas time, at least it's probably Christmas as it's cold and snowy. What random and pointless logic. Flagpole!
Some rankings have Fairytale Of New York by The Pogues Featuring Kirsty MacColl as the number one Christmas song of all time. The original cover, however, is not seasonal in the least and whilst it does at least let us gaze upon the lead singer of the band, where is Ms MacColl when you need her to brighten the place up a bit? On the remix we have found a Christmas fairy who is happy to show us her tail. A Christmas fairy-tail if you will. Or even if you won't. Avert!
Blue Yule is a compilation album containing, it says, "Christmas Blues and R&B Classics". Which makes it odd that the album cover is in red and green. Where are these aforementioned blues? The answer is on the remix where we find a babe in the snow and in the process she has turned the artwork blue, not in the 'xxx' sense, but in an 'rgb' sense. Actually, it's more a combination of cyan and blue, but we won't argue the fine points. Cornflower!
