Kicking off the Holiday Tune series with Eartha Kitt’s remarkable rendition of “Santa Baby”
Each day until December 25, I’m going to have a Holiday Tune – they will be old favorites mixed with some new ones.
We kick off the series with a classic: the dazzling Eartha Kitt.
The sexiest Catwoman of them all performed her her signature song Santa Baby throughout her long career and before this performance she cracked: “I used to have a lot of fun with this song … then MADONNA sang it!”
It’s true, there has been many versions of this song over the years – good ones too – but let’s face it, she sings it better than anyone ever will.
She absolutely owns it!
Eartha may be most famous for playing Catwoman on the Batman TV series but she had a singing and acting career than spanned 60 years on Broadway, television, films and nightclubs.
She died in 2008 but her work lives on – especially this, her sexy signature song.
