Santa Baby...

While packaging orders for shipping today I had on a local radio station that is playing nothing but Christmas music. Listening to the music of the season certainly did help to fill me with Christmas spirit as I have truly been a humbug! While listening, and singing along I discovered something. No one else who sings "Santa Baby" can hold a candle to Eartha Kitt's version. I heard it sung today by Madonna and Taylor Swift. Just not nearly as good as the original in my opinion. Maybe my choice just dates me.

Also I believe Elvis' version of Blue Christmas is far superior to that of Porky Pig, although I do have to admit it did make me laugh.

  1. I can hardly believe that that clip of Eartha Kitt is from about 57 years. The oldies are sure the best !!
    I am still trying to get myself organised and an hardly believe that 2 weeks today all presents opened, the food etc will have been eaten and I will probably be sitting home here feeling like I have run two or three marathons !!
    Love Sybil xx
