December 14: This Year's Santa Baby

December 14: This Year's Santa Baby

Sequel to: Santa Baby (Song, 1963)

Eartha Kitt's "Santa Baby" was a big hit in 1953 (we featured it in the 2002 edition of Steve's 25 Days). Not willing to leave well-enough alone, she performed a sequel song one year later, This Year's Santa Baby. It didn't do so well, as you probably could have guessed.

We featured Kitt's original version of this sequel last year, but believe it or not, someone actually recorded a recent cover version of the song. Lex Land performs a pretty catch gypsy jazz-styled rendition that's worth a listen. You probably won't hear many other takes on this song, that's for sure!
