Now, it's time for the nitty-gritty...The 10 Best Risque Christmas Songs Ever Made! I'm talking about the kind of Yuletide songs you wouldn't be caught dead caroling in the streets or at a Christmas Eve service! However, suppose this year you throw (or get invited to) a Christmas party where an exotic dancer is hiding behind the tree, draped in red and white. (Hey, it can happen!) OR, maybe, you're planning a romantic evening in front of the tree with your loved one and you want to put on some seasonal tunes to get you in a freak-on mood. Here are the songs for those kind of occasions:
1. Ben Light and His Surf Club Boys, "Christmas Balls" (c. 1936, bootlegged in the 1940s.) See what I mean?
2. Ella Fitzgerald (!), "Santa Got Stuck In My Chimney" (1950) This song created so much controversy that it never got re-issued as a single. Well worth the search, though, if you ever find it.
3. Eartha Kitt, "Santa Baby" (1953) Need I say more?
4. Clarence Carter, "Back Door Santa" (1968) 'Nuff said!
5. Jimmy Butler, "Trim Your Tree" (1953) You don't have to be Freud to figure this one out!
6. Pearl Bailey, "Five-Pound Box Of Money" (1959) Whoever knew that Pearl had it in her?
7. Elvis Presley, "Santa Claus Is Back In Town" (1957) If this song doesn't get you bumping and grinding, check your pulse!
8. Mabel Scott, "Boogie Woogie Santa Claus" (1948) You can't go wrong with any song that has "boogie woogie" in the title! Brian Setzer also did a really cool cover of this gem.
9. Charles Brown, "Merry Christmas, Baby" (1956) Many people have covered this song, but, this is the sexiest version ever made. He also re-recorded it as a nice duet with Bonnie Raitt in 1992.
10. Madonna, "Santa Baby" (1987) How can you resist Madonna's Betty Boop imitation on her take of this Eartha Kitt classic?
There you have it! Have fun searching for these songs! May your holiday season be happy, peaceful, safe and, yes, S-E-X-Y! "Merry Christmas To All and To All A Good Night!"
