Christmas Songs Post: “Santa Baby” or “Gee Whiz It’s Christmas”?

Another Christmas challenge! And maybe two songs that you haven’t heard before? Anyway, they are both great, you should listen to both of them and then pick which one you like best. (also, in case you were wondering, yes I have changed the blog header to be all Christmas images!)

Two powerful young 1960s female R&B voices! Two somewhat obscure Christmas recordings! But which one is better?

Eartha Kitt “Santa Baby”

Or, Carla Thomas and “Gee Whiz It’s Christmas”

This is really REALLY hard!!!!! I think I might go with Carla Thomas, but that might just be because I’ve heard “Santa Baby” so many times it no longer feels as special. Also, I love the way she says “oh by the way…it’s snowing”.

    • Yeah, I love these songs. There are so many good lessor known Christmas recordings.

  1. I like Gee Whiz, partly because I hadn’t heard it before and I love the everydayness of it. Also, I hate the lyrics to Santa Baby.


    • Isn’t Gee Whiz great? I heard it for the first time just a couple years back and immediately fell in love with it.
