"Santa Baby" by Eartha Kitt

It has been a very busy start to the week for me, so I don't have a full-fledged blog post for you today. Instead I will leave you with one of my favourite Yuletide songs, "Santa Baby" by Eartha Kitt. "Santa Baby" was written by Joan Javits and Philip Springer. Although obviously meant for the holiday season, it was recorded by Eartha Kitt in July 1953. The song proved to be a huge hit for Miss Kitt. It reached no. 4 on the Billboard singles chart. She later performed the song in the 1954 film New Faces. It has since become something of a holiday standard. While artists from Kylie Minogue to Miss Piggy have since covered the song, no one has since matched Eartha Kitt's version for sheer sex appeal.

Here, without further ado, is "Santa Baby" by Eartha Kitt.
