Happy Christmas from everyone here at AllBum.Art. To celebrate, today we bring you a festive remix with the song Under The Tree by The Water Babies. The original single front cover artwork shows a tree, in fact it shows seven snow-capped trees (as far as we can count). The remix just has the one tree, and instead of being covered in snow, it's bedecked with baubles instead. But it also has a naked babe who seems to have been caught hiding something underneath it. Shall we go and find out what's under the tree? Merry!
Who makes you feel like A Natural Woman? Why Aretha Franklin of course. Who else? You can see Ms Franklin asking this question on the original single front cover artwork, with her figure-of-eight earrings, which just shout naturism. On the remix we find a real life naturist in the form of a natural woman naked on a footpath in a forest. It all looks very wholesome and natural and given that she is nude, there's little doubt that she is also a woman. Greenery!
Sunshine After The Rain, what could be more refreshing? That said, according to the original single front cover artwork by Elkie Brookes, you should still wear your raincoat, even when the sunshine comes out, and the rain is finished. An alternative approach is taken by the babe on the remix who has opened a sunshade and taken all her clothes off, as the sun dries up the rain. Either approach is fine, but one may be more acceptable in public circles. Umbrella!
Another song whose title is Street Life, this time from Beenie Man. On the original single front cover artwork we can see Mr Davis (for that is his name) standing around with what looks like a microphone cable slung over his shoulder. Very down with the street sounds. On the remix we find a babe who is lying down on the pavement wearing nothing much. She seems full enough of life, and she's on a street, so that gives her the edge over the original cover. That is, after all, why AllBum.Art is here. Boulevard!
This is not the only song in the world called Street Life, but it is the one sung by Roxy Music. The band's idea of street living seems to be to sit on office chairs by a grand piano in lounge suits. That is what the original single front cover artwork says. The remixed artwork says has a babe walking down a street. Pictures of fruit are still life, and a picture of a babe walking down a road is street life. Makes complete sense. Avenue!
Who doesn't know the opening refrain of this The Troggs' song Wild Thing. You make my heart sing. The original cover may make some people's hearts sing, but the remix, we feel, would do a much better job. On it we find a babe enjoying the big wild outdoors, sprawling by a river and next to a waterfall with a picturesque forest beside her. Not only does she like being in the wild[/wild], but her clothing (or lack of) suggest she has a wild attitude too. Thing!
Skirt is both an album and a single by Kylie Minogue. The original single front cover artwork shows Ms Minogue standing between a sunny window and a billowing curtain in a short dress and high heels. Is that a skirt she is wearing, that much is not 100% clear. On the remix we find a young babe who is definitely wearing a skirt, as opposed to a dress, as you can see. Mind you, with a skirt that short, it might be better called a belt. Narrow!
Single Covers, Singles Released Before 1960, Special Remixes, Summer Sizzlers, Outdoors, Not Safe For WorkYou have to wonder about the sanity of a parent who decide to call their son Philip, when their family name is Phillips. But here we have Phil Phillips and his lazy love song Sea Of Love. On the original cover artwork we find Mr Phillips (Philly to his friends) filling out a space where the backdrop is of a strange combination of an underwater scene and a smiling face. The remix is filled with a babe who is also smiling, and who it might be hoped would find a sea of love of her own. Philtration!
David Bowie and his China Girl, what can we say about that? Let's examine the original single front cover artwork where a chinese girl is telling Mr Bowie to keep quiet by 'shushing' him with her pointed fingernailed finger. On the remix is another chinese girl, who is sitting on what appears to be a bird waterer. No doubt her ass is going to be wet, and it seems to have dribbled down her legs and soaked her shoes too. Thankfully no others of her clothes are likely to get wet as she isn't wearing any. Bowl!
Another remix for David Bowie. On the original single cover artwork for The Jean Genie you will find Mr Bowie in a flowery shirt, white boots and what look like white trousers. These might have been classed as jeans in the 1970s but they looks suspiciously unlike any jeans we have seen. On the remix is a babe wearing jeans, or what's left of them. She seems to have been mauled by a goat, or perhaps a genie, and as well as ripping her jeans, she seems to have lost her shirt too. Torn!
