  1. I believe "lwill" is a Welsh untranslatable word used in poetry.

  2. She has seen her future self.
  3. Two gorgeous songs with two hideous single covers. Seriously, who heard "The Winner Takes It All" and thought, oh yes, to sell this song, let's put them in Hawaiian shirts and have them smiling on the cover? And then the damn floating heads...

  4. As evidenced by the retrochart thread, little effort or thought seems to have been put into single covers until well into the 80s.

  5. Adele was taking notes.
  6. Before I looked closely I thought she was standing in front of a pyramid, and I honestly wonder if that was the idea.
  7. Ha, I'd never looked at that Nelly Furtado sleeve properly before. What kind of 60 Minute Makeover-porn is this.
  8. First Album:

    Second album:


    Third album (titled "There's more and more of us")

    After the letdown of Mi Plan and minor Latin success, I officially knew Nelly was over when I saw this cover. Seeing this just makes me feel so awful for her.

    This one’s pretty bad too. Much as I love Nelly, she was responsible for some awful artwork.

  11. Wow, Nicole pretending she was even there!
  12. Not necessarily hilarious but for the digital release did they dive down to the wreck of the Titanic and pull up this crumpled and bashed cover?

  13. Don't ask me how I fell down a Clea rabbit hole, but I discovered 2/3 continued on and rebranded as LoveShy, reinterpreting modern classics like "AM to PM" and "The Boy is Mine."

    Can we please all have a moment of silence for their graphic design department.




  14. I nearly spat my coffee over my desk at that 'Boy Is Mine' one - outrageous!

  15. A few years ago I saw the blonde girl (Emma?) modelling in a catalogue for custom promotional stationery.

  16. That's horrifying but I was worried it was worse to be honest. I pictured her working at a shoestore.
  17. I'll never get over how whoever designed this cover gave poor Nicole a radioactive cervix.

  18. I feel like Robin Antin stood over the designer's shoulder barking orders...

    "Make sure the center girl stands OUT! Everyone needs to know she's the lead! Put a glow around her! MORE!"

    Or Nicole did it herself.

  19. I love that this looks like they went shopping at modern-day H&M.
  20. Is it too early to put the new Meghan Trainor album cover here; I scream every time I see it.
