Santa Baby

"Santa Baby" may be the un-coverable Christmas song. That hasn't stopped people from trying it, but Eartha Kitt's sex kitten performance was so over-the-top to start with that there's nothing left for anyone to do but dial down the performance. Of course, that's not what people do. Instead, most takes are simply hammy, hammier and hammiest. It may one of the few Christmas songs written for a sexual woman, but still - just say no.

There is a woman at my new job that used to do a rendition of "Santa Baby" at the xmas party every year but was not so discretely asked not to this year.

For my money, Clarence Carter's "Back Door Santa" is the finest in the xmas-inuendo-song category.
