My Advent Calendar of Music – Day #8: What a Girl Wants

We’re simple creatures, really – all we want is the very best…..

First up today is the very sultry Eartha Kitt, telling “Santa Baby” the things that are on her Christmas list this year:
.

.
Next, one of my all-time favorites, “All I Want For Christmas is You”, sung by the amazing Lisa Layne of Vince Vance and the Valiants:
.

.
Same title, COMPLETELY different version – I’ve always loved this particular clip from the movie “Love, Actually”; the little girl (and the little boy, too!) is just too cute for words:
.

.
And here is Mariah Carey singing the same version of “All I Want For Christmas (Is You)” – this has become one of her signature Christmas pieces. A friend of mine linked this fantastic video of a young man, dancing with happy abandon; I HAD to include this, because it’s just so much fun!

(You can follow him on Twitter @prestonstweetin, or visit his website; he played a Teacup in Beauty and the Beast when he was 7) :
.

.
And finally – gentlemen, if you get your lady what she wants for Christmas, you just might get treated to your own version of this steamy little number – “Merry Christmas, Baby”, sung by Wanda Jackson and the Continentals (I had to make my own video this year, because the one that I used in previous years wouldn’t work – hope the gents like what I did with this one…..):
.

.
All right, fellas – Ms. Kitt told “Santa” what we want for Christmas; now get shopping!
.
[UPDATE]: HAD to include this – my friend Roamy linked this at another blog this morning, and it is too cute not to share; back in 2011, the crew of the HMS Ocean made this when they learned that they were going to be home in time for Christmas:

    Great day! The guy dancing in the mall made me happy….. the other people in the mall did not. I could not believe how many people completely ignored him and acted like he wasn’t there… I would have danced with him!
    The HMS Ocean one cracked me up… the “other queen” must be very proud!
