Now that it's the Christmas season, one of our local radio stations goes 24/7 Christmas songs. The other day while driving, they played one of my favorite songs, "Santa Baby". It got me to thinking. As far as I know, there are three versions. The original by Eartha Kitt, then Madonna did a version, and the one I heard in my car by Taylor Swift.
It is such a cute song and it got me to wondering. Which is the favorite among my sisters here on CDH? My favorite is definitely the Eartha Kitt version. She is so cute yet sultry. The Taylor Swift version is more jaunty. The Madonna version, well, let's just say I hated it from the beginning LOL.
Take the poll and add your comments.
It just must be the original by Eartha Kitt,nobody sings that song like her.
Eartha Kitt for sure!
Whilst the original is great for fun Marilyn Munroe did a cute version and, in a similar fashion by Kyle Minogue which I remember too.
OMG there are so many left off the list... Marylin Monroe, Gwen Stefani, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga... and more...
But Eartha Kitt is the classic...
None of them, matter of fact I, unfortunately, hate this song now. Years ago I did I music video to this song, lyrics were changed. Anyway long story short, the woman kept changing the dance number and the edit (which I was the editor) she had more money the sense. She hired a choreographer, voice coach and a director. All for a Palm Beach engagement party video. She kept re-editing for two weeks. Two weeks of “Stanley Baby!” So it brings back real bad memories. But Madonna is who I heard first and enjoyed.
The cover by Kylie Minogue is a bit special for me...
A few Christmases ago my place of work did The Xmas Factor. Colleagues formed groups to sing seasonal pop songs, and were given feedback by the panel of judges, 'Simon', 'Louis' and 'Dannii'. Yours truly happily grabbed the opportunity to appear as Dannii, including a mimed performance of Kylie's version of Santa Baby. I had a whale of a time!
