Santa Baby – Learning TracksView Gitika Partington's Full Store
“Santa Baby” is a song performed by American singer Eartha Kitt with Henri René and His Orchestra and originally released in 1953. It later appeared on Kitt’s self-titled and first extended play in 1954. The song was written by Joan Javits and Philip Springer, who also used the pseudonym Tony Springer in an attempt to speed up the song’s publishing process. Springer initially was dissatisfied with “Santa Baby” and called it one of his weakest works. Lyrically, the song is a tongue-in-cheek look at a Christmas list addressed to Santa Claus by a woman who wants extravagant gifts such as sables, yachts, and decorations from Tiffany’s.
A terribly tongue in cheek, theatrical, funny but old fashioned ideal of the role of the woman, which was sung with completely different, female-empowered words by Myley Cyrus a few years ago! No reason why men could not sing the tune. It is a fun sing and the basses keep the whole thing moving along very nicely.
