I was about to ask whether that was seriously for real - the faces look as if they've been created with those optional eyes, noses, mouths, moustaches and beards that crime witnesses are given to try make a reasonable photofit representation of people they have only seen fleetingly !Benny wrote:Singles that missed the top 40:
Under Attack (which is the single with the worst cover photo in the history of music )
They should have sued the photographer!
But I've just checked - and although that cover doesn't seem to have been used in many other countries, it was, incredibly, the one we had in the UK . . . . . Amazing.
I'm afraid I wasn't really impressed by that song at all - my favourites from the first page being:
Probably among the least well-known of all of these are two that I first became aware of from cover versions by other acts. "Cassandra" was translated into Dutch, and was a hit single in the Netherlands in the summer of 1984, for Bonnie St Clair and Jose - and they followed it up the following summer with "Zoals Vrienden Doen" - losing any ageist implications in translation as it became "The Way.....Friends Do". But an English version of that song had previously been an Irish hit for the country singer Philomena Begley (mid 1984) !Benny wrote:Singles that missed the top 40:
