Eartha Kitt, američka pjevačica, plesačica i glumica preminula je u četvrtak, 25. prosinca 2008. u 81. godini života.
Skriveno: 
- Kitt je preminula od raka debelog crijeva koji je liječen u bolnici Columbia Presbyterian, izvjestio je medije Andrew Freedman, publicist i njen dugogodišnji prijatelj.

Rak u poodmakloj fazi otkriven je prije dvije godine, a tijekom liječenja zdravlje joj se poboljšalo.

- Ona je nastupala do prije dva mjeseca i bila je jaka. Imali smo dogovorene nastupe za 2009. - rekao je Freedman.

Eartha je bila međunarodna superzvijezda koja je bila nominirana za tri nagrade 'Tony', dva 'Emmyja' i dva 'Grammyja'.

Na nagovor prijatelja, mlada Eartha Kitt kao plesačica i pjevačica pridružila se slavnoj plesnoj skupini Katherine Dunham Dance Troupe. Za vrijeme nastupa u Parizu, uočio ju je vlasnik noćnog kluba, te je tako dobila svoju prvu ulogu u kabareu. Njenim obožavateljem postao je i slavni Orson Welles koji ju je prozvao 'najuzbudljivijom ženom na svijetu'.

Nakon povratka u Ameriku, Kittova je dobila nekoliko glavnih uloga na Broadwayu npr. u predstavi 'New York of 1952' u kojoj je izvela pjesmu 'Monotonous'. Kittova je snimila hitove kao što su 'Love for Sale', 'St. Louis Blues', 'Folk Tales and Tribes of Africa', 'C'est Si Bon' i 'Santa Baby'.

Kittova se pojavljivala u brojnim TV-serijama, a filmska ostvarenja su joj 'Boomerang' s Murphyjem, 'Fatal Instinct', 'Harriet the Spy' s Rosie O'Donnell i dokumentarac 'Unzipped'. Također je objavila nekoliko knjiga, uglavnom autobiografija.


Nama najpoznatija po izvedbi pjesme Santa baby, koju su kasnije prepjevale mnoge pjevacice, a izvedba sentimentom najbliza originalu je, IMHO, ona Cynthie Basinet...

O pjesmi Santa baby...
Skriveno: 
Santa Baby
"Santa Baby" is a 1953 Christmas song written by Joan Javits (the niece of Jacob K. Javits), Philip Springer, and Tony Springer.

The song is a tongue in cheek look at a Christmas list sung by a woman who wants the most extravagant gifts like sable, yachts and decorations from Tiffany's.

Original recording

"Santa Baby" was originally sung and recorded in 1953 by Eartha Kitt—who coincidentally died on Christmas Day, 25 December 2008. The song was a huge hit for Kitt, and she later said that it was one of her favorite songs to record. A sequel, "This Year's Santa Baby", was recorded by Kitt in 1954, to no commercial success; Kitt also reprised the original song for a 1963 re-recording with a more uptempo arrangement (Madonna's popular rendition for the 1987 charity album A Very Special Christmas is based on this latter version). The song gained considerable exposure after it was featured in the 1989 film Driving Miss Daisy.

Cover versions

Covered in recorded and live performances by many other artists throughout the years, including Maria Muldaur, Everclear, RuPaul, Kate Ceberano, Taylor Horn, Madonna, Jhene, Macy Gray, Natalie Merchant, Faith Evans, Boney James, Kylie Minogue, The Pussycat Dolls, Lina, LeAnn Rimes, Kellie Pickler, and Taylor Swift, as well as in an Ally McBeal episode by the title character (Calista Flockhart), by Chris Mitchell, and by The Swingle Singers. Miss Piggy sang the song in the film It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie and recorded another version for the album A Green and Red Christmas.

The version recorded by the Pussycat Dolls entered the Top 70 Billboard charts in the Philippines, peaking at #22. Although it was a b-side the song picked up radio airplay in the Philippines. This version also appeared as track 1 on CD 1 of The Perfect Christmas 2006 album.

Rev Run has also re-recorded this song for A Very Special Christmas, Vol. 3.

In December 2007, Kylie Minogue's version of the song reached #76 in the UK due to download sales. She used it as a b-side to her single "Over The Rainbow".

Les Paul performed the song live in December 2006, with double-bass player, Nicki Parrott performing vocals.

In 2007's This Christmas starring R&B singer Chris Brown and Lauren London "Santa Baby" was performed by Lina in the opening credits.

Rijeci pjesme Santa baby
Skriveno: 
Buh-bum.. buh-bum...
Santa baby, just slip a sable under the tree, for me
Been an awful good girl
Santa baby so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, a '54 convertible too, light blue,
I'll wait up for you dear
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Think of all the fun I've missed,
Think of all the fellows that I haven't kissed
Next year I could be just as good
If you check off my christmas list

Santa baby, I want a yacht and really thats not a lot
Been an angel all year
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa honey, one little thing I really need, the deed
To a platinum mine,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex and cheques,
Sign your x on the line
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my chirstmas tree,
With some decorations bought at Tiffany's
I really do believe in you,
Let's see if you believe in me

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring,
I don't mean on the phone,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry, tonight.
