Anything with Grandville pictures on it. And worst ever cover done by a human is cover of UK single Las Palabras De Amor, IMHO.

I agree. That's just nasty.

Looks like they've all been on a diet.

I'd have to say "Keep yourself alive" because you could see it in their face, they were so young, and so ready for the big time!!!


Loving the pass, cherishing the present, and looking forward to the future

I can't choose one...I really like the portugese killer queen...and the spanish tie your mother down sleeve is real nice.

In think the design for all the 45's from the miracle are cool. Nice how they designed the Queen letters. The regular seven inch from Breakthru has a really cool sleeve

I DO like the cover from "Las palabras the amor" The song is about the war on the falklands and the afraid expression on the face of the child fits the song very good I think (altough I think the song is too much over the top, I don't really like the song)

The best solo 45 is, in my opinion, the japanese sleeve for Freddies Made in heaven.

Recordings of Hot Space were finished in March 1982, Falklands war started in April 1982, so this song is not about the war. Though the cover is about it, I agree, but it's still awful cover, IMHO.
