I have discovered something amazing!
December 10, 2012
So, Eartha Kitt. She was amazing, wasn’t she? And not just for playing Catwoman on the old Batman TV series. (And Yzma in the Emperor’s New Groove. Oh, my goodness! Please tell me that someone somewhere has film of Kitt and Patrick Warburton recording those scenes. Well, close enough.)
She has a couple of really famous songs, one of which gets a huge amount of airplay this time of year. This song, in fact:
And I suddenly have to wonder: does “Santa, Baby” actually go with “I Want to be Evil?”
You put them together, these two songs tell the story of a woman who had very high hopes for the holidays and did her best to live up to those hopes. But she was disappointed. Terribly disappointed. So disappointed, she only had one recourse: become a supervillain.
My goodness, do I love Christmas
